In day-to-day language, there are things that are self-evident, consetudinary terms and concepts that are like sticks on which the understanding of modern man of the late twentieth and early twentieth centuries is based. However, those same concepts that were intended to help our ability to absorb knowledge and information, now, against the accumulation of data and information that our mind receives from moment to moment. Be the length of the moment, measured in conventional time of seconds, minutes, hours or days. No matter how small this measure of time is, the amount of data to absorb already escapes the imagination. That is the very essence of the coming century the XXI, the 2000s. The conventional sticks of the tradition of yesteryear, are not valid, the schemes although we do not want are revised and renewed in the light of new data and information. man of now tends more and more to analysis, I take the task of analyzing in light of history a basic concept: THE NAME OF GOD.The concept that God has a name is very clear for Western man … but it does not happen same with the Jewish People. Although it would appear to the naked eye that the name of God was the aforementioned Adonai or even Jehovah.
Actually it is not in the flamante languages of the Scriptures. The name of the men and concepts of the Old Testament deciphered from the Hebrew are in reality a key to the knowledge or measure of revelation that we may have about a personality or biblical concept. The more the NAME of the Deity will be! The truth is that the Name of God as such and as we see it in the Bible, in the language of the flamante Hebrew and according to the traditional proclamation kept from generation to generation was and will continue to be. a very well kept secret! In this booklet we investigate the reasons and causes of this secret. In the Old Covenant, that is to say the Pentateuch, the Prophets and the other writings, they are called in Hebrew with the generalized name: Tanach. In the reading of the Tanach whenever the Jewish reader comes to the Name of God with his sight, surprising thing, he does not say it, he does not even know how he pronounced it in antiquity today. For having lost in the haze of History and the Priestly Annals burnt in the destruction of the Second Temple, all trace and trace of the pronunciation of the Ancient Hebrew. Today when the Jew comes with his sight in the reading of his Bible to this Name , which are actually the letters Yod, hey, vav, hey:? הוה of the Hebrew, in short the Jew sees what would only be the consonants of the positivo Name, but instead of the vowels he finds a "replacement" made by the wise men called Menakdim, that is to say those who put the consonants according to the tradition.The replacement of the vowels tells us the Jews who read Hebrew when we must pronounce Adonay or Eloim the Name of the Deity or in its absence only HA SHEM, which means THE NAME, but all these forms, Adonay, Elohim or Ha Shem is not the proper Name of the Deity, but another that comes in place of the first for the reasons of the tradition and besides not incurring the sin of to mar the NAME in vain.THE BEGINNINGS OF THE SECRET OF THE NAME
When did this secret begin?
The question is really very legitimate. Our Father Abraham knew him, but the gift of the Name is earlier, even more ancient. It was from Genesis 4:26 that Men in caudillo began to invoke the Name of Jehovah. The Spanish Bible actually says Jehovah, but in Hebrew the true pronunciation of this Name is not known, even if it were known, it would be forbidden to the Jew because of the fear of "You will not take the NAME of Gd in vain". Abraham is revealed, God as "EL SHADAY" (Gen 17: 2) the Almighty in Spanish and this Name contains for Abraham, our Father, the Revelation and confirmation of the Covenant with Abraham. The Covenant of Gen 15: 2 where God is made known name Lord – Hebrew: Adon and compesto of two parts, ADON and יהוה, ie the "LORD NAME" whose Name I repeat again, the Jews, we can not even know how to pronounce until today. However, the knowledge of the Name of God had to pass unconditionally within the blessing of the Abrahamic Covenant for the reason that the Name contains the concept of the identity, quality and duties of the God of the same Covenant. The Abrahamic Covenant was confirmed with Issak and bought by Jacabo from the hands of Esau, Esau is the one who narrowly bore his blessing and sold his birthright for a bowl of red lentils. That the wife for Isaak was taken from Mesopotamia, was not chance, this era of the land where Nacor lived where the NAME was invoked (Gen 24). Rebecca was blessed by her father and brothers to be the mother of thousands and that her descendants would always prevail over the enemies (Gen 24:60). In Gen 25:21 we are given another clue, in this clue We are told that Issak knew the power of prayer in the NAME, when Isaak prayed to THE NAME for Rebecca, the daughter of Betuel, who was sterile and was given the gift of Esau and Jacob. By knowing the identity, quality and duty of the God of the Covenant, it is asked by virtue of the Covenant itself and He grants it by committing himself to man, this is the essence of the Covenant !; that is, a reglamentario commitment between God and Man. In the case of Abraham the Covenant is Unconditional since God swore by himself. THE BLESSING TO JACOBO AND TO ESAU
The scripture scholar should always notice the details. In the details is the same essence of the Covenant, the commitment made by the Deity to man, this is what must be fulfilled seguro, even if the man is unfaithful, God can not be and meets the eye, even today his Pact for people who apparently rejected it. For example, we will take the fact that the blessing given to James is very special, different from that given to Esau, not only because of the power that is granted to Jacob over his brother, that is, that the children of the mother incline before you (James), for me to understand the best of this blessing is found in Gen 27:28 where the name of God is invoked and also in Gen 28: 3, on the eve of the farewell between father and son, namely Isaak and Jacobo. It should be noted, however, that on Esau the Name is not invoked at any time but only the good will of Isaak his father to Esau but without contradicting the positivo blessing uttered in the NAME. This reinforces the premise that in the knowledge of the Name in Hebrew is the knowledge of the qualities and commitments of the GOD of the Covenant intrinsic to the Identity of the GOD itself of the Covenant and after that the NAME was presented to James really in dream, the dream of the stairway in Bethel, where יהוה D-OS confirms the paternal blessing to James, making him the son of Abraham according to the promise, as all of us of FAITH are today: Children of Abraham by faith (Rom 4). The NAME is invoked again in blessings in chapter 48 of Genesis, on the sons of Joseph who are adopted by James to be possessors of the inheritance that would have the 12 tribes or families of Israel. Efraim and Manasseh become the People that would be taken from God to receive through Moses the Levite the Tablets of the Law, symbol of the Sinaitic Covenant. The Blessing of Jacob (Israel).
The profound change that took place in the life of Jacobo resulted for the Patriarch in the name change, instead of Jacobo, the one who follows or "comes behind" (others say evil supplants), Israel was called the one who fought against God and prevailed James as every father has to bless his children before leaving, this happens in a noticeable way and highlighted in Gen 49, the effects of the blessing are of an unparalleled prophetic scope, and an unsolvable puzzle to this day for some. Actually Gen 49 contains more than one blessing contains as we said above a prophecy concerning each of the Tribes of Israel, from then until the End of the Times, it also contains the Messianic Secret given in the prophecy to Judah, this is the specific name SHILOH, which is undoubtedly the name of the Messiah who is to come "for his own" in his help, which is what Judah actually did for his brother Joseph, this name of the Messiah is another of the secrets that are gradually and gradually revealed in the reading of the Covenants, from the Old Covenant to the New Covenant.
MOSES AND THE NAME
A serious problem is presented to Moses before the presence of God. How would Moses be recognized by the elders of Israel? How would a man who is 40 years old in the desert, unknown without name or fame, be received? This dilemma of Moses is given simply by possessing the secret revealed in the burning bush, in the Holy Land. The NAME is revealed to Moses in the Burning Bush, HE says: – I am the God of your Father, God of Abraham, God of Isaak and God of Jacob. The most important thing is that when Moses asks: '… what if they ask me what is their NAME?, – What will I answer them? I AM THAT I AM saying that IS forever, the ALPHA AND THE OMEGA ALEPH AND TAV, the Beginning and the END, THE ETERNAL.This measure of revelation was never given to any man ever, that is why in Deuteronomy 18:18 the Scripture says "Prophet will raise you from the midst of his brothers, like you and I will put my words in his mouth, and he will speak everything that I I will send him. "Giving space from that time, from the Covenant of the LAW to the coming of the Messiah, the only one that can change the order established by the LAW. THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ORIGINATE THE SECRET?
The reality is that it is the Commandments given at Mount Sinai that originate the thought or rather the concept that the Name must be preserved in secret for the good of the Chosen People. The logic of the concept is based on the interpolation between commandments. The First Commandment says: I AM יהוה ELOIM your God that will take you out of the land of Egypt, land of servitude. What is really a declaration of the NAME of God in a delantero and clear way, a powerful revelation made to an entire people! I AM, THE ETERNAL BEING, The Name that contains the Identity, the essence the qualities and the commitments of the GOD of the Pact. This is in itself the Seal of the Sinaitic Covenant. The NAME for being in the understanding of the infinite Hebrew, also contains in itself all the qualities of the God of Israel, Eternal, Without End. It is also personal because it is presented as the ETERNAL SOY (your God), Liberator of Slaves, Almighty, the one who raises despondent, heals the sick, gives sight to the blind, feeds the hungry of Justice, the one who provides everything, our reward of triumph, Rock of Salvation and so on However, within the commandments it is written that יהוה is a jealous God who visits the iniquity of the fathers over the children until the third and fourth generation, and it is written: You shall not take the Name of your God in vain. For this cause, from the taking of the NAME of God in vain and the oath, the most ancient legislators of the Law, that is to say the Levites, when they saw before the problem the taking of the NAME in vain and its disastrous consequences, they propose the solutions. Being only they, the Levites, those who read the Law to the People the Law explained it and applied it in the judgments. Taking advantage of the fact that the Masoteric text of the Law, written on animal leather scrolls, does not carry consonants and has to be read using the memory and tradition handed down from father to son it was easy for the Levites to hide from the rest of the People of Israel NAME in the public reading of the law. This is the core of the secret: that the writing in the flamante Hebrew does not carry the consonants, nor of the Name, therefore after the 40 years of the desert, only the Levites preserved the knowledge of the writings and the NAME and the correct way of pronouncing it. to jealously prevent this being taken in vain or worse falling into the hands of pagans and idolaters. According to the tradition crystallized in the leaves of the Talmud only the High Priest, on the Day of Atonement pronounces the NAME for remission of the sins of the People of Israel What gives us an idea of how restricted was the use of this NAME and of the tremendous importance it has for the Jewish People. CAN YOU BUILD THE TEMPLE WITHOUT THE NAME?
The answer to another question is strict and simple NO! The future Temple that will be the third in the chronological order, will not be called the Temple of God, it will be the Temple of the ANTICHRIST, in this Temple the NAME of God will not be pronounced. The Third Temple, must not be truly the Temple of God, without (or an artima, of the enemy to make fall there all those who seek to change the Divine Order by the Humanistic Order. Solomon the wisest of all men is The one who opens with his famous prayer kept in the annals of the Sacred History in I Kings 8, Solomon came to be called "friend of God" in Hebrew: Yedidiah Solomon opens the Temple apparently using the Name of Jehovah in his Sermon. the encontrarse of I Kings 8:16 also gives us the clue to the tremendous secret to keep: "From the day that I brought my people Israel out of Egypt, I have not chosen a city of all the tribes of Israel to build a house in which my NAME, although I chose David to preside over my People Israel. "Reading the flamante in Hebrew helps us to go even deeper into the secret because the word יהוה that was badly translated in the Reyna Valera, would have to be read Adonay, which it is not the Name of God but as we have said above only the replacement of the word, therefore the key really is "house in which my NAME was". Also 8:29 speaks of the NAME that would be present in the House, meaning here the Hebrew language that the NAME implies the presence, the personality, and the very essence of the GOD OF THE COVENANT. Other key verses are in the same chapter I Kings 8 : 31 and 33. The first refers to the sins committed between man and his neighbor. In the ancient Jewish culture that comes from the times of the A.T. sins are divided into these classes: 1. Between man and his neighbor (Adam sees javeró) .2.Antre the man and the Deity (Adam ve Elohav) .3.Pecados in caudillo against the nature of creation (Adam la makom). Assuming one man sins against another and there is a lack of witnesses. These men in the absence of witnesses are subjected to oath test, based on "You shall not take the name of your God יהוה in vain" and God is that he justifies the righteous, who does not sin, and who has sinned against his neighbor sins twice , against your neighbor and against GOD by violating the Law of God expressed in the Commandments. The second encontrarse is for the entire Congregation of Israel that being in sin or impure for any reason (The example of Ai in Joshua 6,7) is defeated in battles. "Turn to you", means that they return from their sins in a 180 degree turn. "And confess YOUR NAME", only in his name is the door that leads to the remission of the offense of sin against God. "Pray and beg …" is the expression of the request in words uttered in the confetion itself, that is why the prayer itself has no value if it is not done to the NAME due !. .I Kings 8 is a chapter that must be studied thoroughly to understand the quality of the relationship between man, the human being in caudillo, and God, not to understand it as a simple formula but as a powerful force of union formalized in the Covenant that God proposes to his People. WHAT ABOUT US TODAY?
Today we live in the time of Grace and within Grace there is that same Grace, but how Grace is expressed, since the Grace of God itself has a way of being that channels man. How is this?. The answer to this question is given by Jesus YESHUA himself in his intercessory prayer the night before his death on the Cross, John 17: 6 is where Jesus says: "I have manifested your name to the men of the world that you gave me; they were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word. "Jesus actually manifested HIS OWN NAME to the men of the world and in his Name sec (an understanding of Hebrew found the identity, essence and qualities of man .
John 17: 11-12 contains the most bold and intrepid statement a man could ever have made, but Jesus is not man only but the incarnate Deity, the NAME, THE VERVO, THE LOGOS, THE METATRON. In encontrarse 12 he says: "When I was in the world I kept them in your NAME", in 11 it says keep them in your NAME.!. With this we are told that the Eternal Life consists of the knowledge we have of the True God. The True God in the time of GRACE took a step forward to meet us sinners in our immense needs and give us in principle a previamente knowledge, without having to delve into the annals of History, or books written in languages we do not know, but really gave us a powerful knowledge for salvation. So it is written in Acts 4:12, where Peter says: And in no other is there salvation (Hebrew Yeshua)
because there is another name under heaven,
given to men, in which we can be (saved = Noshaim the same root of Yeshua) Today, dear reader, there is a NAME given to men in which God discovers a face of grace, of grace that comes to be in reality a free gift, but in a single NAME of Yeshua, this name that seems so simple so innocent to the common man is actually a powerful dialogue in itself that God entered into with man, a dialogue of Salvation (Hebrew = yeshua). This name should not be taken lightly, like the blood of the Covenant, of the New Covenant, which was poured out by all of us for the remission of our sins of which the NAME is only the SEAL OF TRUTH of this wonderful Covenant.
