We, as followers of Yahushua Ha Mashiach (Yahushua the Messiah), write the Father and Son's name in Palaeo-Hebrew (see above) instead of the Babylonian Hebrew. The Babylonian Hebrew was adopted during the post-exile. The Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Creator of heaven and earth's name was written in the Palaeo-Hebrew before the children of Israel went into captivity, Elohim did keep a remnant that faithfully returned and built the temple. They did not except these Babylonian customs. We know from scriptures that due to their disobedience, YHWH (Yahuah) allowed the King of Babylon to rule over them for 70 years. This was the start of the Apostasy. Only a handful [about twenty-five percent] returned.
During this time, the name was suppressed. Anyone who spoke the name (Ha Shem) other than a Priest would be guilty of blasphemy. The penalty was death! The children of Israel adopted some of the Babylonian customs and beliefs during their 70 years of captivity. For instance, they adopted the names of the Babylonian months. Not only was the sun-deity, Tammuz, given the name of a month, the women would also mourn for this pagan deity, the 'Queen of Heaven', (Ishtar, mother of Tammuz), of whom made cakes to. They changed Hadassah's name to Ester, the Babylonian fertility deity. They defiantly sinned, by picking who would be their priest, instead of keeping the priestly line of Aaron, the Lewite priests.
What is interesting to note is that the Babylonians knew the name had power yet they did not know the Elohim behind the name! That is why, today, we still see many pagans using the name, engraving the four letters 'YHWH' on everything including jewelry with occult symbols. Sadly, they worship like the Babylonians did. They know the name, yet not the Elohim that carries the name. (Please see our booklet Ha Shem!)
For years ha satan (the adversary), has tried to surpress the Name of the Father and Son. The little scroll that Daniel was told to seal, has been unsealed in these end times! Daniel 12:4,"But you, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased". The Name of the Father and Son has been restored!
We are told the following in Revelation 18:4, "And I heard another voice from the heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive her plagues."
Joel 2:1, "Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my set apart mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of YHWH cometh, for it is nigh at hand;"
