Is Jesus, His Hebrew Name, Y’hoshua, (YHVH’s Salvation) YHVH?
Regardless of man’s religious opinions, what does the Bible have to say about the Creator of the universe?
Who Is YHVH?
YHVH means, He Exists/He Was, Is and Always Will Be. When God revealed His Name to Moses He said it was His Name forever, (Olam #5769), Exodus 3:14,15. He also defined Himself as being ONE, (Echad #).
“Hear, O Israel! YHVH is our God, YHVH is One! Deuteronomy 6:4
Who is Israel?
Israel is defined in Genesis 32:28. Because Ya’aqob contended, (sarah #8280) with God and with men and prevailed, (yakol #3201). If you have the mind-set that “Israel” is synonymous with the “Jewish religion” you may have missed the bigger picture of Who Israel foreshadowed.
Israel, like his father Isaac and his grandfather Abraham, were given the same, unique promise, “in you All people of the earth would be blessed,” Genesis 12:31; Genesis 22:18; Genesis 26:4; Genesis 28:14.
Note, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were not Jewish, and the promise that would come through them would bless All people/Goy #1471
Israel is called YHVH’s Firstborn, Exodus 4:22. Y’hoshua, Is called the Firstborn of All creation, Colossians 1:15; Luke 2:23; Numbers 3:13; Psalm 2:7; Psalm 89:27. What is the significance of being the Firstborn? They receive a Double Portion, Deuteronomy 21:17; Isaiah 61:7. Like Job received double, Job 42:10.
The Firstborn receives YHVH’s double portions blessing for a reason. This blessing foreshadows Y’hoshua, called the Firstborn from the dead, Colossians 1:18.
If you believe you have Spiritual Life in Y’hoshua, Who Is Spiritual Israel, then you can be sure you are heirs according to the promise YHVH gave to Abraham, Galatians 3:29.
The Blessing of the Firstborn
Jacob’s fourth son was named Judah, meaning Praise and Judah’s descendants are referred to as Jews. The promised Seed/Offspring/Messiah, (Anointed) was prophesied to come through the lineage of Judah. Let’s continue keeping a separation between the Messiah being Jewish and the Jewish religion of today.
Jesus’ Hebrew name is Y’hoshua, meaning YHVH’s Salvation. He is The Word from the beginning, The First and The Last, The I Am, He Is, Was and Always will be, Is His Name forever, Exodus 3:15; Proverbs 3:19; John 1:1-14; 8:58
The Shema Is The Most Important Commandment
Y’hoshua taught the Shema was the most important command;
“Teacher, which commandment is the greatest in the Law (Torah)?” Jesus declared, “‘Love YHVH your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ Matthew 22:37; Mark 12:30; Luke 10:27; Deuteronomy 6:5…
Unlike today, when Y’hoshua spoke the above words, everyone would have recognized The Shema, (Hear and Obey) in its entirety. They had physical reminders written on their doorposts, taught it to their children, recited it when they woke up, sat in their homes, walked outside and before they laid down to sleep, Deuteronomy 6:7.
With this knowledge, YHVH is our God, YHVH is One, I ask the big question.
Is Y’hoshua YHVH?
The religious leaders picked up stones to stone Y’hoshua because when He said, I Am, and they knew He was claiming to be YHVH.
God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “Thus you shall say to the sons of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'” Exodus 3:14
Is Y’hoshua The Creator of The Universe?

“YHVH by Wisdom founded the earth, By Understanding He established the heavens.” Proverbs 3:19

“For in Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. All things were created through Him and for Him.” Colossians 1:16
“Through Him all things were made, and without Him nothing was made that has been made.” John 1:3
“He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him.” John 1:10
Messiah Is Prophesied to Have The Authority of God

“But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Too little to be among the clans of Judah, From you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, From the days of eternity.” Micah 5:2
Y’hoshua Is The Messiah, He Has The Authority of YHVH
“Thomas replied, My Lord, (YHVH) and my God!” John 20:28
“Why do you call Me good? Jesus replied. “No one is good except God alone. Luke 18:19
The Revelation of Y’hoshua Reveals He is YHVH
“John, To the seven Assemblies in the province of Asia: Grace and peace to you from Him who Is and Was and Is to come, and from the seven fold Spirit before His throne,” Revelation 1:4
“To the angel of the Assembly in Smyrna write: These are the words of the First and the Last, who died and returned to life.” Revelation 2:8

“Thus says YHVH the King of Israel and his Redeemer, YHVH of hosts: ‘I Am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me.” Isaiah 44:6
“Listen to Me, O Jacob, even Israel whom I called; I Am He, I Am the First, I Am also the Last.” Isaiah 48:12
“A voice is calling, “Clear the way for YHVH in the wilderness; Make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.” Isaiah 40:3
Y’hoshua, (YHVH’s Salvation) came in the Name of YHVH, Psalm 118:26
*LORD Replaced the Name YHVH
As you may have noticed, I replace YHVH every time I see LORD. YHVH has been replaced by LORD over 6,380 times because of a false superstition. Changing it back makes it easier to connect the New Testament verses referring to Y’hoshua as YHVH.
