How did the name YaH come into useage?

The high point of popularity usage for the name YaH in Egypt can be found following the Middle Kingdom when many people immigrated from the Levant and the Hyksos to rule Egypt. Therefore, it is likely that contact with the regions of Palestine, Syria and Babylon were important in the development of the Hebrew name YAH in Egypt.

It was the Theban royal family during the New Kingdom era, who expunged the foreign Levant and Hyksos rulers from Egypt, but then strangely kept the name of the god Yah and incorporated it into their Egyptian names.

The daughter of the 17th Dynasty king, Tao I, was Yah-hotep, meaning "Yah is content". Also another interpretation of the name of the founder of the 18th Dynasty, Ahmose, is Yahmose, which would mean "Yah is born". However, this was not the only name associated with the Hyksos god YAH to be adopted by Egyptians.

In the tomb of Tuthmosis III of the 18th Dynasty, who is often called the Napoleon of Egypt, and who was perhaps responsible for Egypt's greatest expansion into the Levant, there is a scene where the king is accompanied by his mother and three queens, including Sit-Yah, the "daughter of the moon-god". However, after this 18th Dynasty period, the traces of the YAH moon cult in Egypt became sporadic.

The fact that Elohim Shaddai brought Israel out of Egypt is the very reason God Almighty/Elohim Shaddai adds the four letter appellation YHWH ,sounded as YaH, as His name forever.

Egypt had Israel in bondage for 430 years and without a doubt during those 430 years the Egyptians instilled in some Israelite's that the Egyptian moon cult of YaH was great and powerful enough to keep Israel as slaves in Egypt; but when the El Shaddai of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob brings Israel out of Egyptian bondage, that we see Elohim Shaddai take the Egyptian Pharaoh's useage of the word YaH as His name forever to remind Israel His Firstborn Son forever that Elohim Shaddai was now the forever name of YAH Elohim Shaddai the eternal YaH of Israel.

The Egyptians erronously thought their Pharaoh's were YaH of course as revealed in (Rom 9:17 KJV) For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I ( El Shaddai) raised thee up, that I might show my (El Shaddai) power in thee, and that my name (YAH Elohim Shaddai) might be declared throughout all the earth.

We see the Pharaoh's who were given power by YAH also took the name YAH as their name in the 18th Dynasty, as did Ahmose, as Yahmose, which meant "Yah is born".


"YaH is born" as Pharoah became the Egyptian false doctrine of YaH becoming incarnate man as Pharaoh Yahmose. The Bible believer knows that YaH was never born and was never born a man Num 23:19.

After the 18th Dynasty period, the name YaH disappears from Egyptian useage because YAH became the four letter Hebrew appellation YHWH sounded as YAH Elohim Shaddia who delivered Israel out of Egyptian bondage.

The "a" in YaH is implied since Hebrew did not have vowels per say at this time in history but many Hebrew letters when combined such as the four letter string consonant appellation YHWH was voiced by breathing in or out one breath the letters YH as the "a" sound YaH. The "a" was not called a vowel at that time but was the sound of what we now know as the "a" vowel sound that existed when certain Hebrew letters such as YH where used in speech.

The 430 years NEW
by: Anonymous

The Children of Israel were not enslaved by the Pharaoh for 430 years. YAHUAH sent Yocef out ahead of his brothers to create a place for them to escape the famine. The Pharaoh at that time loved Yocef and he gave the Children of Israel the best land. It wasn't until after Yocef and all his brothers died and a new Pharaoh came into power. He HATED the Children of Israel and enslaved them Exodus 1:6-11. They were enslaved around two hundred years. It is even written in Psalm 105:23-24, Exodus 12:40 that they lived in the land of Ham 430 years. Also the 400 years prophesied to Abraham in Genesis 15:12-13 and spoken again in Acts 7:6-7, Joel 3, Deuteronomy 28:68 was a different time. It would become the longest and most brutal captivity of YAHUAH'S chosen people. It was the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade 1619-2019.The Negroes are the TRUE Children of Israel and y'all know it. The book the Europeans took, made many changes, renamed the Holy Bible and painted everyone white, tells their True and once hidden history.

Word of Life
by: Elidrum

Yahuah is Father and Son in bodily form. The Son was brought forth from His Father (as in parturition) to reveal the invisible Aluah (God) of whom the Son is the express image. Through Him the Father created all things... The Word of Life is the One who became flesh and dwelt among us. He came in his Father's Name Yahuah which means the one whose Breath is the Light of Life and He gives Light to every man that comes into the world.

Many have come in Jesus's name but how many in the name if yah...none NEW
by: Saved by King Jesus

How can you be so right and yet so wrong at the same time?
His Holy Name is JESUS! Dont be fooled as I once was because the yeshua name only came out in the last 100 years just like everything else......
It was sounded as J because if that is the case why is it they are called Jews? Judea, Jerusalem,.How is that pronounced with a J?
The prayer of a righteous person can heal so many sins. Abraham did that for sodom and gommorah but no one was righteous.
Exodus 3:14 which in the KJV says And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.
According to Strong's Concordance (a dictionary of the bible), which is actually a concordance of the Babylonian Aramaic Language (when referring to the Old Testament), the words "I AM That I AM" comes from H1961 H1961: "hayah hayah". However in the true Hebrew scriptures of Exo.3:14, it actually said:
"EHJEH ASHER EHJEH". (Pronounced I-JE Asher I-JE)

Aramaic had replaced Hebrew as the language of the Jews as early as the 6th century bce. Certain portions of the Bible—i.e., the books of Daniel and Ezra—are written in Hebrew, unlike the Babylonian and Jerusalem Talmuds.
For those who have an ear,let them hear, for those who have eyes let them see! If you do not have these things you are already dead for it is only through JESUS that we are alive.
He was born without sin but took on the sins of the world.
He came as a man and died as a man.
For God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life!
What a gift and most people do not even realize this precious beautiful gift is free!

THE SACRED NAME" So what did God The Father say to Moses in 1446 B.C.? In Exodus 3:14 He said "EHJEH ASHER EHJEH." THUS SHALL YOU SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL: "EHJEH ASHER EHJEH." "I JE." JESUS HAS SENT ME TO YOU." (I am Jesus-by rule the h is silent so it's pronounced JEE) "The beginning, The self-existing, The eternal JE. I am JE, The Alpha & The Omega, The Beginning and The End, The Eternal, JE with us, God with us." He spoke the same way in Exodus 6:3 "EHJEH ASHER EHJEH." In the uncorrupted Hebrew Old Testament, God The Father was known as JE, I JE, JEH, EHJEH ASHER EHJEH. In early and modern versions of The New Testament, God The Father was known as JE, JESE, JEUE, JESUE, and of course Jesus or "JESUS." In Modern Greek is: Ιησούς Χριστός (Jesus Christ). The book of Moses 7:11 And The LORD God gave unto Enoch a commandment that he should baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son, which is full of grace and truth, and of the Holy Ghost, which beareth record of the Father and the Son. 35 Behold, I am God; Man of Holiness is My name; Man of Counsel is My name; and Endless and Eternal is My name, also.The Divine name does not change throughout languages, throughout the ages.

A good example of this in the book Daniel is Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were a lot like Daniel. They stuck to their principles despite the accusations brought against them by the sniveling officials of King Nebuchadnezzar.
In their real language which was paleo Hebrew, using the phoenician alphabet, Hananiah, Misha'el, and Azariah. These names mean respectively, "God is gracious," "Who is like God?" "God has helped." Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego could mean, respectively, "Command of the Moon God," "Who is what Aku is?" and "Servant of Nabu" (Nabu is the Babylonian god of Wisdom and Nebuchadnezzar's favorite god). We're assuming that the answer to the question "Who is what Aku is?" is yet another tired Babylonian.

Why would hellywood endorse this name because they did through satanic Catholicism.
According to Amzallag, long before becoming the deity of the Israelites, Yahweh was a god of metallurgy in the ancient Canaanite pantheon, worshipped by smelters and metalworkers throughout the Levant.
When you cry out it would be to Jesus, the name in which He wrote on your heart when you were young.
.Paul said if anyone preaches another gospel other then the one he taught let them be accursed.
Funny how all these names sound the same all but the one, the one created by the fake, the ones that hate Him and cannot bear His name, so they named their messiah yeshua, a babylonian/assyrian name which is not the same messiah because they rejected him.
The Greeks called Jesus Iesous
The arabs called him Isa
The Philippines called him Hesus
The Romans called him Iesus, they would have known, they put Him and his apostles to death but let’s keep going
In aramaic He is called eesho
What did the Ethiopians, the oldest Christian nation, a Christian nation that still have the 13 month calender call him:
The Amharic name for the name "Jesus" is the same as the Greek. It is "Iesous" when pronounced, Amharic speakers say it "Iyesus (ኢየሱስ)".

Not only do the Ethiopians have and had the book of Enoch all along but also they have the oldest most complete Christian gospel in the world called Gaima gospels 1 and 2.

So before I went to sleep both times, first I asked our Father in heaven to be with me in my dreams, then this morning I asked if there was anything he wanted me to tell people and for King Jesus to be in my dreams but I had no dream of that degree and when I went on my phone, it was like the Holy Spirit popped an article up to me, the first one on my list, about Israel finding this new discovery from the time of Joshua and I've finally pieced it together!
"EHJEH ASHER EHJEH". (Pronounced I-JE Asher I-JE) but I believe this to be pronounced I jew! So many people are running after this y name but y didn’t mean y it meant J and no one ever questioned where the name jew came from!
I did after I found this discovery. It was an ancient curse. His name on the ancient curse was YHW. Not yhwh. The h was added to cause confusion. Sounding out the word with a j and no e h would have replaced what e sounded like. JEW. So that lead me to question where the word jew came from and it's not what the hebrews will tell you as they say it is from Judah--Yehudah. Take note they even say Judah the y replacing the J but it is not. Jew actually means
Yehudah shares the same root as the Hebrew word hoda'ah, which means acknowledgement or submission. One who acknowledges G d's existence and submits to His authority—to the extent that he is willing to sacrifice his life for the sanctification of His name—he is called a Yehudi.Hence Abraham is commonly referred to as "The First Jew." As the first person to use his own cognitive abilities to discover and recognize the one G d, reject the idolatrous ways of his ancestors and contemporaries, actively publicized the truth of G d.
JYahshua is a proposed transliteration of ישוע‎, the original Hebrew name of Jesus. The pronunciation Yahshua is philologically impossible in the original Hebrew and has no support in archeological findings, such as the Dead Sea scrolls or inscriptions, nor in rabbinical texts as a form of Joshua.

The initialism INRI (Latin: Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum) represents the Latin inscription (in John 19:19), which in English translates to "Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews", and John 19:20 states that this was written in three languages—Hebrew,[a] Latin, and Greek—during the crucifixion of Jesus.
The title "King of the Jews" is only used in the New Testament by gentiles, namely by the Magi, Pontius Pilate, and the Roman soldiers. In contrast, the Jewish leaders use the designation "Christ", which means "Messiah"

And she conceived again, and bore a son: and she said, Now will I praise את eth- YAHUAH: therefore she called his name Yahudah; and left bearing. BERE'SHIYTH (GENESIS) 29:35 את CEPHER

I transliterate the four letter memorial name of the Creator as IY-AH-UU-AH. IY-AH-UU-D-AH was named in IY-D-AH, praise (H3034) to IY-AH-UU-AH.

"Even before Abraham, I am HaYah!" Said Yahusha (Yahuah + Save), for He comes in His Father's Name, as He told us, "I come in My Father's Name, and you receive Me not: if another shall come in his own name (Jesus), him you will receive.). Even before the empire of Egypt, or Mizrayim, son of Ham, existed, even before Noah, or Adam. Even before creation, the Name above all Name "YaH", "YaHUaH" already existed, for He is our Almighty Creator the Most High.

In Hebrew Scriptures you will see His Name written in modern Hebrew as יְהֹוָה or YHWH and is pronounced "Yahuah" but they replaced His Name with the names of pagan gods such as 'Baal' which is translated into English as 'Lord'. This was prophesied by His prophets such as in Jer.23:27 In Hebrew the Word 'Ha' in front any word means the only one. So the 'Ha' in front of 'YaH' as 'HaYah' means He is Yah, the only. Here is Exo.3:14-15 should be translated, "Elohim replied to Mosheh, "HaYah, HaYah (הָיָה (H1961) This is what you are to say to the Yashar’elites: HaYah has sent me to you." People sing His Name in every language "HalleluYah" which translated to English as "Praise Yah" and it means "Praise Yahuah" Check out the last word or two word of Psalm 117, depending on which version of the Bible you use, some still have Hallelujah, but some have changed to 'Praise the LORD', or just use Concordance to see H3050 and H3068. You can also Google "Blue Letter Bible' and use Concordance on their web site, which is one of the best and convenience. Remember there is only one name under Heaven whereby we must be saved, and His Name is Yah or Yahuah and when He came the 1st time He was called Yahusha meaning Yahuah saves. Remember He is Hebrew and Jesus is NOT a Hebrew name, and names don't change no matter what language or where on earth you travel to, and no one has the authority to change your name let alone the Name of Almighty...and LORD is NOT a name but a title yet the whole world with billions of people cannot see it yet a child could tell that is a title and not a name, so do not believe the lie but wake up...

If you get upset, that because you don't know your Scriptures or understand them, and are still in the world and went to school and learned from the world/Satan! We all born into it, but who love the truth? Do you? Even if it costs you everything? or only it is convenience and easy and fit your wants and desires. Scriptures are true but those love not the truth He let them be deceived, because they love not the truth..." They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to be saved. 11 For this reason Elohyim sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe the Lie, 12 so that all will be condemned—those who did not believe the truth but enjoyed wickedness." 2Thes.2:10-11 And so the WHOLE world is deceived as Scriptures foretold (Rev.12:9 and 2Thes.2:10-11 and many other places).

Remember the world belongs to Satan and is controlled by him (1John5:19; John12:31; John14:30). The children of Elohim Yahuah knows this fact, for their eyes were open the day they were reborn, but the people who belongs to the world still under the control of the evil one, and the WHOLE world is deceived (Rev.12:9) and no one can get out unless Yahuah the Son, our Mashiyach opens their eyes and take them out by revealing the truth to them. They will believe for they are His lost sheep.

Now, if you are children of the truth, then you would go and find out the truth I pointed above. If not, you will not, for Scriptures also said, "Those people belong to this world, so they speak from the world’s viewpoint, and the world listens to them. But we belong to Elohyim, and those who know Elohyim listen to us. If they do not belong to Elohyim, they do not listen to us. That is how we know if someone has the Ruach of Truth or the ruach of deception." 1John4:5-6

If you love the truth and seek it with all your heart, He will reveal...just as He has with me and others, for He knows all hearts and all things, past, current, and future! Only the children of the devil lie and think they can hide...they will find out the hard way on judgement day! As Scriptures foretold! But bless are those who hearts are pure and love the truth and live righteously without sinning, for His Seed is in them (1John3:9) for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs! Soon coming to earth...

May Yah blesses you and saves you...
