The Names of God

…If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is YHWH,” …
Roman 10.9

Yeshua: From the Hebrew name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ (Yehoshu’a) meaning “YAHWEH is salvation”

Maybe I have been naive in my faith, walking in a dream my whole existence so far. Speaking or reading God’s names leaves me breathless every time and sometimes, I can’t finish the list of choice. It is an overwhelming and exhilarating experience.

I was on my way home a few nights ago and I recalled that a good friend of mine had sent me a lovely and long list of God’s names. I couldn’t find it straight away so decided Google would be my ally in this occasion and help me find a new list.

It was a beautiful albeit short list that I found. It was essentially just giving brief summaries of God’s more known names and how changing the second part of the name would give a different Character of God.

El Yeshuati stopped me in my tracks.

Yeshua has been a name I have loved for a long time. I always wanted to find a way to relate to Jesus on a more personal level and to know his name, how his mother called him, was very meaningful to me. Yeshua.

El Yeshuati means The God of my Salvation (Isa 12:2)

El Yeshuatenu means The God of our Salvation (Psa 68:19)

Yeshuah means salvation, deliverance and victory.

When it comes to God, I don’t believe in coincidences and I don’t believe Jesus’ Aramaic name just happens to come from the root that means Salvation.

Jesus is our salvation and our deliverance and our victory.

To me, that just proves that God has crafted our story from the very beginning. His love is so absolute that he wrote it with His Son’s name.

Yeshua. My Salvation. My God. My everything.

…because if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is YHWH [recognising His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (Rom 10:9) AMP
