The Sacred Name of God – Part 8

The Sacred Name of God-What does it mean?


Those that translated the Scriptures into English for reasons I do not fully understand, hid the name of YHVH behind the title LORD.  Did YHVH command us to hide His name?  A thousand times NO.  Literally more than a thousand times the name of YHVH is openly declared in the Holy Scriptures.  Far from being told to HIDE His Sacred Name we are told to declare it to the entire world.  WHY?  Because it is the name of the only one who can bring the dead back to life.

Primary Conventional Usage

YHVH is the Sacred Name of God that is revealed over 6800 times in the Old Testament.  Almost all English versions of the Scripture have replaced the Sacred Name YHVH with the title (not a name) LORD.


The commonly held view of what the name YHVH is a name that may have been derived from a verb that means "to be", "exist", "become", or "come to pass".


First Use of the Sacred Name YHVH in Scripture


Genesis 2:4 (KJV with title LORD replaced with HIS true name YHVH)

These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the YHVH (Lord) God made the earth and the heavens.
