Many in the Messianic Movement are praying under the names of the 8 characters of God. My warning to them is as follows, be careful not to forget the work on the Cross, don’t deny Yeshua while trying to be too Jewish. For the day is soon upon us that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus (Yeshua) is Lord (Messiah).
Most of the following is taken out of my book “Gifts of The Spirit Through the Tabernacle” Available here https://thegoldenreport.net/store/books/
Let’s take an illustration. All of the Scriptures tell us that Jesus Christ is all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. So let’s look at the Godhead–Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Now they desired to incorporate themselves fully into the person of Jesus Christ. So in the incorporation we read, Matthew 1:23 “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” When the Lord Jesus was walking in the flesh among us, He was the man, Christ Jesus. He was the incorporation of everything that the Godhead is. When Philip asked the Lord Jesus in John 14:8, “show us the father” Jesus said in verse 9 “He that hath seen me, hath seen the father.” Jesus did not say he that hath seen me hath seen God. God is the person, Father is the nature. Jesus came to manifest the nature of the Father. The word God is used by every pagan religion and cult. This is why Jesus said, “He that hath seen me, hath seen the father.” Father gives us a relationship. Jerry Golden is a person to everyone, but a father to only four. Father implies relationship. When God revealed himself to his people, he revealed himself by his name YHVA, not as God. He is a personal God, one with a relationship, and a name. That breaks down in Hebrew to “I am.” I will show you this with the following. God’s name means Past, Present and Future. He is the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the Alef and Tav He is the “I AM.” And His Name is the root word for the Past, Present and future.
He manifested Himself to his people by a name that described His nature. Under the Old Testament economy God manifested Himself under an eight-fold, compound character addressing His natures. They were:
YHVA TSIKENU = RIGHTEOUSNESS
YHVA KADDESH = SANCTIFICATION
YHVA SHALOM = PEACE
YHVA SHAMMAH = THERE
YHVA ROPHE = HEALS
YHVA JIREH = PROVIDES
YHVA NISSI = BANNER
YHVA ROHI = SHEPHERD
In the time before Jesus, if a Jew needed healing, He called on YHVA ROPHE. If he needed peace he called on YHVA SHALOM, and so on.
There are Churches going back to that today, thinking it to be Holy or very Jewish; therefore, it must be OKAY. I am Jewish and I tell you that it is not OKAY. Let me explain something here before going on. The Jew believes only in One God. They were addressing Him relative to their particular needs. They did not have a Messiah to turn to at that time. Under the New Covenant economy, the Scriptures tell us in Acts 4:12, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” So now, if you need healing you call on the name of the Lord Jesus, “Yeshua”; you need peace, you call on Jesus, if you need deliverance, you call on Jesus. Because, there is no other name given. Incorporated in the person of Jesus is the totality of the Godhead Bodily.
