Actually, it is not. The name of the men of the Old Testament is really a key to the knowledge or measure of revelation that we may have about a biblical personality, the more the NAME of the Godhead will be!
The name of God as such and what we see in the Bible, in the language of the innovador Hebrew and according to the traditional pronunciation saved from generation to generation was and will remain a very well kept secret! In the Old Covenant, that is the Pentateuch, the Prophets and the other writings, called in Hebrew with the caudillo name: Tanach, whenever the Jewish reader comes with his sight where the Name of God would be read, he does not pronounce it, nor It is not known today how this name is pronounced because it was lost in the haze of History and erased from the Priestly Annals that were burned in the destruction of the Second Temple. Today when the Jew arrives with his sight in the reading of his Bible to this name, which in reality are the letters YvY of the Hebrew, in short he sees what would only be the consonants of the true Name, but instead of the vowels he finds a "replacement" of reading symbols called "nikud" that it tells us when we should pronounce Adonay or Eloim or failing only HA SHEM that means THE NAME. The secret is revealed to those who believe. THE BEGINNINGS OF THE SECRET When did this secret begin? The question is actually very legitimate. Our Father Abraham knew Him personally, but the gift of knowledge is even earlier. It was from Genesis 4:26 when Men in caudillo began to invoke the Name of ADONAY. Abraham is revealed to God as "EL SHADAY" (Gen 17: 2) the Almighty in Spanish and this name contains the revelation and confirmation of the Unconditional Covenant with Abraham of Gen 15: 2 where God is made known Lord-Hebrew name: Adon and composed of two parts, ADON YVY, that is to say the LORD "NAME" that we can not and do not 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, confirmed in Issak and bought by James from the hands of Esau, who had him by little and sold his birthright for a plate of red lentils. The wife for Isaak was taken from Mesopotamia, Eliezer went to look for her, this was no accident, this was from the land where Nacor lived where the NAME was invoked (Gen 24). There where Rebecca received the blessing from her father and brothers to be the mother of thousands and that her descendants would prevail forever over the enemies (Gen 24:60). In Gen 25:21 we are given the clue that Issak He knew the power of prayer in the NAME, when Isaak prayed to YVY for Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel, who was barren and was granted the gift of Esau and Jacob. THE BLESSING TO JACOBO AND TO ESAU The scripture scholar should always notice the details. For example, that the blessing given to James is very special, different from the one given to Esau, not only because of the power that is granted to Jacob over his brother, that the sons of the mother bow down before you (James ), the best of this blessing is found in Gen 27:28 where the name of God is invoked, also in Gen 28: 3, on the eve of the farewell between father and son, namely Isaak and Jacob. However, on Esau the Name is not invoked at any time but only the goodwill of Isaak his father towards him but without contradicting the vivo blessing proffered in the NAME. After this the NAME was presented to James really in dream, the dream of the staircase in Bethel, where YVY confirms the paternal blessing to James making him the son of Abraham as all of us of the FAITH are. Children of Abraham. The NAME is invoked again in blessings in Gen 48 on the sons Joseph who are adopted by James and these become possessors of the inheritance that they would have within the 12 tribes or families of Israel. Ephraim and Manases Gentiles of birth become part of the People who would be chosen by God to receive through Moses the Levite the Tablets of the Law, symbol and heart of the Sinaitic Covenant. The Blessing of James (Israel). The profound change that there was in the life of Jacobo redundated for the Patriarch in the change of name, instead of Jacobo, the one that follows or "comes back from" (others say supplants), then the name of James is changed to Israel (the one who fought against God and men and prevailed). Jacobo like all patriarch blessed his children before leaving, this happens in a noticeable and highlighted in Gen 49, the effects of Paternal blessing are of unparalleled prophetic scope, and some even today are an enigma without any solution! Actually Gen 49 contains beyond a mere blessing. It actually contains prophecies concerning each of the involved Tribes of Israel. 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" (heb. Shelo) to his help, this name of the Messiah it is another of the secrets gradually and gradually revealed in the reading of the Covenants. 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 wilderness, unknown and without a name and received, be received? Fame? The answer to this question is unique: – Simply by knowing and possessing the secret revealed in the burning bush, in the Holy Land.The NAME is revealed to Moses in the Burning Bush, 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, 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 to you or what I will send him. " Giving space from that time to the coming of the Messiah, the only one who can change the order established by the Law. IS THAT THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ORIGINATE THE SECRET? It is the Commandments given at Mount Sinai that understand and understand everything Jewish originate thought or rather the concept that the Name must be preserved in secret for the good of the Chosen People. The logic of this concept is based on the interpolation between commandments. The First Commandment says: I AM ADONAY ELOIM your God that will take you out of the land of Egypt, land of servitude. What is really a unique declaration of the NAME of God in a exterior and cutting way, a powerful revelation made to an entire Town and through them to the entire World! I AM ADONAY. This is in itself the Seal of the Sinaitic Covenant. This contains all the qualities of the God of Israel, Eternal, Endless, Personal (your God), Liberator of Slaves, HE IS Almighty. However, within the commandments it is written that ADONAY is a jealous God who visits the the iniquity of the fathers over the children until the third and fourth generation, it is also written: You shall not take the Name of your God in vain. The oldest legislators of the Law, the Levites, faced the problem of taking the NAME in They were the ones who proposed the solutions. Being only they, the Levites, those who read the Law to the People explained it and applied it in the judgments. The core of the secret is that the writing in the innovador Hebrew does not carry the consonants in caudillo, nor the Name, therefore we spend the 40 years of the desert, only the Levites keep the writings and the NAME and the correct way to pronounce it to jealously prevent it from 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 is that only the High Priest, on the day of Atonement – YOM KIPUR – pronounces the NAME for remission of the sins of the People of Israel. Which gives us an idea of how restricted the use of this NAME was and of the tremendous importance that it has until today for the Jewish People. IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUILD THE TEMPLE WITHOUT THE NAME?
