According to ancient Jewish Orthodox tradition, the Sacred Name of the Most High God is not to be uttered. Therefore bible translaters have replaced the true name of the ONE true GOD with the title GOD or LORD. In place of pronouncing the Sacred Name in prayer, worship and discussion, the word "Adonai"(the Hebrew word for 'Lord') and many other names are used. Today will focus our attention on name used the most in the Bible: In the Old Testament Yahweh occurs 6,519 times. This name is used more than any other name of God. Yahweh is first used in Gen 2:4; which reads; "These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD GOD made the earth and the heavens" Yahwehin the Septuagint means: kurios — Lord, Master despotês — Lord, Master, denoting the omnipotence of God (TDNT), despot, absolute ruler Meaning and Derivation: Yahweh is the promised name of God. This name of God which (by Jewish tradition) is too holy to voice, is actually spelled "YHWH" or "YHVH" without vowels. YHVH is referred to as the Tetragrammaton (which simply means "the four letters"). YHVH comes from the Hebrew letters: Yud, Hay, Vav, Hay. While YHVH is first used in Genesis 2, God did not reveal Himself as YHVH until Exodus 3. The modern spelling as "Yahweh" includes vowels to assist in pronunciation. Many pronounce YHVH as "Yahweh" or "Yehovah." We no longer know for certain the exact pronunciation. During the third century A.D., the Jewish people stopped saying this name in fear of disobeying the 3rd commandment "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain" (Exd 20:7). As a result of this, Adonai is occasionally a substitute for YHVH. In English the Y is replaced with the J. "Jehovah" is used in the early English translations of the Bible (e.g., the Geneva Bible, the King James Version, etc.). Today, we will reveal, explain, illuminate and simplify the POWERFUL NAME OF THE UNKNOWN GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB
