    I agree with Bruce. Yeshua is the Hebrew translation of Jesus. I don't know where the lady got the information that it is the name of a pagan god. It is also translated as Joshua or Yehoshua. There are Jews who believe in Jesus and refer to Him as Yeshua Ha Mashiach meaning Jesus the Messiah. May His name be exalted and blessed for evermore.

    This is a powerful scripture. It lets us know that God is that solid foundation. He is a deliverer out of our afflictions. He is our salvation and trust. A mighty strength when you are experiencing difficulties and hardships. Knowing that God is on top of everything and His omnipotence has the final say. I love the Saviour.

    The Holy Precious Name of our Father in Heaven, the All Mighty Living God, Creator of All things is one with His only Begotton Son who's Name is Above All Names, Holy, Precious, True, to whom All Glory, Honor, Acceptation, Thankfulness, belongs to: Blessed be the Holy Precious Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who's name is the only Name that can save any person whom believes. Yeshua is an old pagan god, stop deceiving people....look into scripture, and the New Testament. OR may the Lord find another to take the place of being a good steward of the Word of God here on the internet.
