MAJORITY OF CHURCHES THAT 'CLAIM' TO BE 'ORTHODOX' CHRISTIAN LACK BIBICAL WISDOM ABOUT GOD'S NAME
Also, why it is that SO many churches that claim to be "Orthodox Christian" dislike Jah's name and are uneducated on it's Bibical truth when the name JAH IS IN their Bibles? Why is it that the majority of these churches honor the Son's name..but do NOT honor the Father's name? "Hallowed by thy name", remember? Why do SO many who claim to be "Christian" hate Jah's name?
THE NAME JAH WAS GOD'S NAME BEFORE RAS TAFARI/HAILE SELASSIE WALKED THE EARTH!
Mark Morh admits: "Many parishioners still do not feel comfortable using the term [name]Jah due to it's present day reference to Rastafari." But then Mark brings out an OUTSTANDING POINT! saying: "However, we must remember that it was GOD's NAME FIRST, LONG BEFORE Haile Selassie ever walked the earth."
Mark contiunes with even more great reasonings asking, "Should we strike out Jah's name simply because Rastas use it? Should we strike out using the name "Jehovah" simply because Jehovah's Witnesses use it? Should we stop using the name of our savior Jesus Christ because The Mormons use the name in title of their church, "The Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints? Positively not! Rather we should stand up for truth!"
JAH'S NAME VERIFIED TO GOD'S 'BIBICAL' NAME!
Indeed! Mark concludes: "After some study of this name of God, I have concluded that it IS a legitmate BIBICAL word. "Jah" (Hebrew for Yah) is a contraction of Jahweh. Today we either pronounce it as Jehovah or Yahweh. In addiction to the name Jah being used by Rastas, it is also a common name used within Jamaican culture. Do to its regular use in their diatect of Patios, this name is by no means limited to the Rastfarian culture, but raher it encompasses the majority of Jamaican culture, and other areas of the Carribean."
From the first part of God's name Jah-hov-ah.
THE NAME JAH OCCURES IN THE ORIGINAL BIBLE MANUSCRIPTS 50 TIMES!..WHY HAVE THE CHURCHES & BIBLE TRANSLATORS REMOVED JAH'S NAME?!
The name JAH occures 50 times in the original Hebrew scriptures, 26 times alone, and 24 times in the expression, "HallaeluJah", which literally means: "Praise Jah!"...The presence of the word "JAH" is completely REMOVED in MOST popular translations.
The King James and The American Translation only have it ONCE as "JAH or "YAH" at Psalm 68:4. The German made Rotherham's Bible emphasized Bible restores the name as "Yah" 49 times and The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures restores it all 50 times as "Jah"...This includes Revaltion 19:1,3,and 4 where it reads: Praise Jah!" But what do how do MOST Bibles read this? As, "Praise the LORD!"
Again..WHICH "lord"??? See Psalm 146:1 and Psalm 68:4 for the answer!
JESUS CHRIST CONSTANTLY MADE GOD'S NAME KNOWN & HOLY..SO WHY DON'T THOSE WHO 'CLAIM' TO FOLLOW HIM DO THE SAME?
Jesus Christ, God's Only Begotten Son and Savior for the whole world mentions making His ,"Father's Name Made Holy", and making it, "Known" ,many times. Matthew 9:6; John 17:26.
Infact, Jesus' own name means literally, "Jah-hovah is salvation!"...It is said in the Bible of Jesus, "How can they call upon Him of whom they do not know?"..Likewise how can you called upon the Name of God when you don't even know what it is?
Jesus spoke many times of Making His Father's name Known. Infact he prayed this the night before He died! -John 17:26
WHERE CAN 'I' FIND THE NAME OF GOD IN MY BIBLE? Unforuantly, as pointed out in this, article, MOST popular translations of the Bible have REMOVED the NAME of GOD and REPLACED IT with the TITLES "LORD" and "GOD"...However The New World Translation RESTORES the name JAH ALL 50 times!
Including the Book of Revelation! And RESTORES the long version of the name JEHOVAH to ALL of it's some 2000+ times! Also The Rotherham's Bible RESTORES the NAME YAH 49 times! And RESTORES the long verison YAHWEH all 2000+ times! Also The Assembly of Yahweh has their own Bible that does this!
Psalm 148 (New Living Translation)/& Young's Literal Translation
1 Praise Jah! Praise Jehovah from the heavens! Praise him from the skies!
2 Praise him, all his angels! Praise him, all the armies of heaven!
3 Praise him, sun and moon! Praise him, all you twinkling stars!
4 Praise him, skies above! Praise him, vapors high above the clouds!
5 Let every created thing give praise to Jehovah, for he issued his command, and they came into being.
6 He established them forever and forever. His orders will never be revoked.
7 Praise Jehovah from the earth, you creatures of the ocean depths,
8 fire and hail, snow and storm, wind and weather that obey him,
9 mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all livestock, reptiles and birds,
11 kings of the earth and all people, rulers and judges of the earth,
12 young men and maidens, old men and children.
13 Let them all praise the name of Jehovah. For his name is very great; his glory towers over the earth and heaven!
14 He has made his people strong, honoring his godly ones-- the people of Israel who are close to him. Praise Jah!
