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.
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:
set up many memorials for himself such as "The Unknown
Soldier" or "The Wall" for instance. Can you imagine the
punishment one would receive if someone had gone up and
destroyed one of these memorials? Now if we wouldn't
desecrate one of man's memorials, then why would anyone want
to desecrate Yahweh's Memorial - His Name!? We do not
have the right to change His name to whatever we want to
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
