WHAT IS THE TRUE NAME OF THE FATHER?

DID YOU KNOW THAT "the LORD" (when written in all caps) has been substituted for the Father's name by those trying to protect it and keep it from being profaned?

His name is composed of four Hebrew letters, YUD/HAY/VAV/HAY (English: Y-H-V-H), and is most accurately pronounced YAH-WHEY, which means (the) self-Existent or Eternal.

What does YHVH Himself have to say about His name?

"And Elohim said to Moses again, 'You shall say this to the sons of Israel, YHVH, the Elohay of your fathers, the Elohay of Abraham, The Elohay of Isaac, and the Elohay of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial from generation to generation.'" [Exodus 3:15]

And what are some of the words about His name that He put in the mouths of the Prophets?

"For it shall be, all who shall call on the name of YHVH shall be delivered..." [Acts 2:21; Joel 2:32a]

"So My people shall know My name thus in that day; for I (am) He speaking. Behold Me!" [Isaiah 51:6]

"And the sons of the alien who join themselves on YHVH to serve Him, and to love the name of YHVH, to be His servants, everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, and takes hold of My covenant; even them I will bring to My holy mount and make them joyful in My house of prayer..." [Isaiah 56:6-7a]

And King Solomon?

"And also, to the alien who is not of Your people Israel, and has come from a land afar off for Your name's sake, (for they shall hear of Your great name, and of Your strong hand, and of Your stretched out arm, and he shall have come in and prayed toward this house.) You shall hear in Heaven, Your dwellingplace, and shall do according to all that the stranger calls to You for, so that all the peoples of the earth may know Your name, to fear You like Your people Israel, and to know that Your name has been called on this house which I have built." [1 Kings 8:41-43]

And the Messiah?

"Righteous Father, indeed the world did not know You, but I knew You; and these have known that You sent Me. And I made known to them Your name, and will make (it) known, that the love (with) which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them." [John 17:25-26]
