From the Christian you agree with:
by Robert Brooks
The English word “God” is vague in the least, for it can apply to the Christian God, or the Jewish God. Or, is sometimes used of Allah. The ancient Hebrews were more specific. We miss this specificity in English. God, our God, is a God of many names, amounting to many revelations of His Being.
I. The “EL” Revelations.
A) El – an ancient name simply translated as “God”
B) El Shaddai, rendered “God Almighty”
C) El Elyon, meaning “Exalted One,”“Most High”
D) El Olam:“God the Everlasting One”
E) El Roi –“God who sees me”
F) El Berith –“God of the Covenant”
G) El Elohe – Israel –“El the God of Israel”
H) Elohim – the plural form of El, often in singular interpretation
I) El – often used in names as in Israel, Bethel, Ishmael, Samuel, Elijah, Elisha, Emmanuel, etc.
II. The Revelational Name, Adon.
Simply translated “Lord,” most likely meaning “master.”
III. Yahweh is used 6,700 times as the primary name for God.
A) It means The Eternal. It is Israel’s major name for God. In English translations it is simply rendered “Lord.”
B) The Old Testament scholar, Charles A Briggs, asserts that the word “Jehovah” is a “linguistic monstrosity.”(Messianic Prophesy X1)
C) Geneses 4:26 states that after the birth of Seth “then men began to call on the name of Yahweh.” This probably means it was Yahweh, the True God, they were worshipping, even they did not at this time know His name.(Ex. 3:13)
IV. Yahweh tells Moses to inform Pharaoh that unless he will let His people go, He will send plagues upon Egypt.(Ex 9:13 –14) Thus He did!
V. Pharaoh consents to Israel’s exodus, but Pharaoh pursues them, and the Israelites are afraid when they reach the Red Sea.
But Moses commands:“Stand still and see the salvation of Yahweh...”(Ex. 14:13). He then lifted his staff and “Yahweh caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind.”(Ex. 14:21) Thus Israel passed through the sea safely.
VI. It was Yahweh God who provided for Israel as they murmured in the wilderness march.
A)“Then said Yahweh unto Moses, behold, I will rain bread from heaven.”(Ex. 16:4)
B) Israel complained of thirst, and “Yahweh said... behold I will stand before thee... and thou shalt smite the rock” in Horeb,“and there shall come water out of it.”(Ex. 17: 5 – 6)
C) Upon their complaint of no meat, Yahweh sent them quails (Ex. 16: 12 – 13)
D) Amalek fought with Israel, but Israel defeated them through the power of Yahweh, who declared,“I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.”(Ex. 17: 8 -14)
VII. Yahweh gives the Ten Commandments.(Ex. 20: 1 – 3)“And Eloheem spake all these words, saying, I am Yahweh thy Eloheem. Thou shalt have no other Eloheem before me...“ In Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy Yahweh is the Great Law-Giver.
VIII. After the death of Moses, Joshua is given the command to conquer corrupt, reprobate, past-repentance Canaan. Every place the sole of Joshua’s foot touches is given (by Yahweh) unto his conquest.(Joshua 1: 1 – 3) Yahweh is unequivocally Israel’s God to punish her in corrupting themselves in wicked compromise with the people and gods of Canaan – resulting in Assyrian and Babylonian captivity.
IX. But Yahweh has mercy on Israel with free, undeserved grace. They are restored in their land.
X. The Psalms, Proverbs and prophets laud Yahweh in a concerted call to consecration.
God’s Holy name, Yahweh appears 6,700 times in the Old Testament. We miss this by the translation,“Lord.”
The word "Yahweh" simply means "god", it's not a name.
