THE DIVINE NAME OF GOD (ITS PRONUNCIATION AND IMPORTANCE)

WHAT ABOUT THE NAME OF JEHOVAH?

Many religionists do not accept the name of God as Jehovah. For them it was like having a teddy bear and giving a name to it whatsoever you want. Thus for them it will show that Jehovah’s Witnesses are giving a name for God by their own way. For them it was an invented name and can never become God’s name because they say that there is no letter J in Hebrew alphabet and there are no vowels (a,e,i,o,u) in the Hebrew alphabet. Does this show that we cannot call God in name acceptable to him? Remember Bible names are translated in many different ways according to languages of each country and why Christian religions are not questioning it as to how it pronounce originally? The names Jeremiah, Jacob, Jesus, Jehosaphat, Jehonadab etc. are writtten in Hebrew language with letter Y as start of their names but now it was letter J. Jesus in Greek is Iesous but it might be written as Yeshua or Yehoshua in Hebrew but why for no reason Trinitarians accept this without hesitation that this is the name of God they believe without questioning the originality and pronunciation of its name? Why religionists now would question the name Jehovah? Remember in Joel 2:28 – 32 in parallel to Acts 2:17 – 21. * Note this is not the name of the Lord Jesus because it has tetragrammaton in Hebrew Scriptures in the book of Joel thus it refers to Almighty God not the Lord Jesus Christ. The time telling is in the last days and that on the great day of Jehovah whoever calls his name (with faith and action) will be saved. Remember also that in Revelation 11:18 that God will give reward to those who are fearing the NAME OF GOD. What name is that if there is no name to call upon? This is also on the time after Armageddon, right? That is why there is certainty that the true nation of God who teaches truth and live in accordance with God’s will is calling God in HIS ACCEPTABLE NAME. For if not, the words in the book of Joel, Acts and Revelation with respect to calling his name will be invalid. One thing the short form of the name of God is Jah which is only used by the Jehovah’s Witnesses (see this –http://interlinearbible.org/psalms/68-4.htm — see also the two letters of the tetragrammaton here in these verses which is YH (Yah) in literal translation –http://biblehub.com/hebrew/yah_3050.htm – Please click on the Book and its verse to see the textual transliteration). Remember there are the two letters of the tetgrammaton in the original Hebrew the Y and H and it was literally translated as Yah (no vowel a in Hebrew) which becomes Jah in modern translation. And in the book of Revelation, “Alelouia” is the same as “hallelujah” which means “praise Jah”. There is no letter h sounds in Greek thus allelu means hallelu and there is no letter y in Greek and so the sounds of ia is Yah which is Jah in modern translation thus it really means praise Jah. Allelu in Hebrew is hallelu which also means “praise” (You can see some examples of it in Psalms 150 [see the link here –http://interlinearbible.org/psalms/150.htm ]. Therefore, from one point of view we can conclude that the Jehovah’s witnesses are using also the right exact short form of the name of God!
