NathanTalks #8—Should We Say Yeshua, Jesus, Yahshua, Yeshoshua or What?

What is the name of the Messiah? Which name should we use? Should we use his Hebrew name, his English name, his Greek name, or his name in some other language? What does YHVH Elohim, the God of the Bible, think about this issue? Is using the right name of our Messiah, Savior and Redeemer a salvational issue? Some people think it is. We will discuss all of these issues in the video.

  1. Gen 11:1  Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. …Gen 11:6  And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. 
    Gen 11:7  Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” 
    Gen 11:8  So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city. 
    Gen 11:9  Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth. 
    I’ve always went to this instance in the Bible. He made the different languages Himself therefore, He knows.

  2. Totally agree with everything you said in the video about Yeshua’s name.
    I always thank the Lord for any new revelations and to know His real name is a blessing. However, there is no need to be prideful; we need to be humble and kind.

  3. Yeshua, the name above all names. We all do the best we can with the truth that we have at any given time.
    Shalom, John

    • Well said. When YHVH will judge us, he will take all of these things into consideration and reward us accordingly in total loving righteousness. This is what I have to keep reminding people who are coming into a more Hebraic walk after exiting the Babylonian church system. Many who do so tend to become pridefully judgmental, to one degree or another, against those who are still trapped in the harlot system. Can we not all remember that there for the grace of Elohim go all of us? Instead of pridefully vaunting our own level of understanding and putting others down who haven’t gotten there yet, can’t we just be thankful for Abba’s merciful grace toward us, and, beyond that, do everything possible to reach out to those around us in love and work diligently to gather them in as well? After all, Abba loved US while we were yet sinners. Can we not do the same toward our brethren in the churchianity?

  4. Hey Nathan, good teaching on the Name. I wanted to listen to it again, but for some reason #9 comes up instead of #8, so I will have to go by memory. In #8 I think you taught on the ‘remnant’ in Rev. 12:17 and ‘The Set-apart believers’ in Rev. 14:12. Both of these groups are defined as those “who keep The Commandments of Elohim and have the Testimony of Y’shua.” Most Hebrew Roots leaders teach that this means that if we want to be included in this group, we must still keep the Torah commands, but only trust in Y’shua’s sacrifice for salvation. ie. our conversion testimony. However, there seems to be much more being identified here. For instance, Y’shua states very clearly that every word that He spoke in ministry was a Commandment coming directly from His Father(John 12:48-50) and as you correctly say, if HR groups would be obeying Y’shua’s commission to heal and deliver then they would catch up to Christians who are doing His ‘works’. Also, further on in Revelation we find a revelation of just what ‘the testimony of Y’shua’ is: Rev. 19:10; Worship you Elohim: for the testimony of Y’shua IS the Spirit of Prophecy. Yes, what better testimony of the power of Y’shua than for all of His people to be operating in the Gifts of Prophecy, speaking in tongues and interpretation to deliver ‘words of wisdom’, ‘words of knowledge’ and prophecies to deliver complete healing and deliverance to all within hearing. What Y’shua is pointing out in this revelation, I believe, is that this is how we shall Worship Him “in Spirit and in Truth”, by obeying both OT. and NT. commands and operating in The Gifts of The Holy Spirit.

    • I couldn’t agree with you more. What you’re saying is exactly what I have been teaching and encouraging others to do for decades and try to live in my daily life. Onward and upward bro!

  5. I would like to resurrect this thread regarding the accurate name of the Messiah. Anybody else interested? It looks like there was a video here on that subject but it was later replaced with the video on Mt Rushmore. Nathan, if you’re reading this, can you re-link that previous video?
