Importance of using the name Yahweh יהוה
The following is an outline of the hundreds of scriptures that show the importance of Yahweh’s name.
Although His name may not seem important to most, by the time you are finished reading these scriptures, there shouldn’t be the slightest doubt in your mind that Yahweh’s name is very important to Him.
So shouldn’t it be important to us?
Definition of the word “name” in scripture
This will prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the word “Name” not only means “character and reputation” but also a literal written and spoken name.
This is the definition of the Hebrew word “shem” which is translated as “name” all throughout scripture
Strong’s # 8034 Shem; a primitive word [perhaps rather from 7760 through the idea of definite and conspicuous position; compare 8064]; an appellation, AS A MARK or memorial of individuality; by implication honor, authority, character: – + base, [in-] fame[-ous], name[-d], renown, report.
As you can see from the above definition, Yahweh’s name not only represents His character but the Name Yahweh is also HIS MARK! What is a mark but something that is written? The Name YAHWEH also is His memorial of individuality. This definition goes hand in hand with scripture:
Exodus 3:15-AV And Elohim said moreover to Moses, Thus shalt thou say to the children of Israel, YAHWEH Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob, hath sent me to you: this [is] my name for ever, and this [is] my memorial to all generations.
Yahweh’s name designates Yahweh Himself
Yahweh’s Name is the greatest Name
Yahweh’s Name reveals His true nature
Yahweh’s Name signifies His presence
Yahweh’s Name represents His power and authority
Yahweh’s Name identifies His people
Yahweh’s name relates to Yahushua’s name
John 5:43-AV I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
Reading the verses in context is strongly recommended to grasp the full meaning of the text.
