Discussion for Psalms 83:18

  • CK on Psalms 83:18
    The name given at Psalms 83:18 is derived from the Hebrew consonants Yod He Vod He, or YHVH, referred to commonly as the Tetragrammaton. Because of IGNORANT and FOOLISH Jewish "tradition" of refusing to pronounce "the name" based on the commandment to "not use the name of thy God in vain," the original pronunciation has been lost to history. However, based on the Hebraic tradition of names having meanings and their numerical coded messages in Gematria, the pronunciation Yahweh has been given as the closest Hebrew approximation to the name in modern times. In English, it is translated a Jehovah and the J is pronounced with the J sound. In Spanish the J is pronounced with the H sound, and there is no "h" at the end in Spanish spelling. Each language has their own TRANSLATION and pronunciation for the Hebrew name Yahweh.

    Satan the Devil does not want humans to know the name of the only TRUE God, Yahweh/Jehovah so that we would not KNOW who the true God is nor call on His name and worship Him. This is why the name has been all but removed from translations of the original scrolls, even though on the originals it was written 1000's of times. JEHOVAH is the only TRUE God and Jesus Christ is His SON, whom Jehovah gave as a sacrificial ransom, once for all time, for redemption of the Adamic sins of humankind, in order that all who believe in Jesus and OBEY His commands would be forgiven our sins and receive everlasting life.

    How that everlasting life is defined is a different thread.
  • Patty Tozi on Psalms 83:18
    Every morning l sit some where alone getting strength from my Heavenly Father. I have been through my life many warfares because the enemy knew at the end of my Distany l would be so close to our God, that l could move heavy mountains from others lifes. I flow in and out of the controlled system of lies- knowing my Strength of my past fights l have had would lead me in the Light to fight for others. I know my God. I know His Son. Been up in the Heavens before. Saw Jesus fight for me with His Father so l could return to the world to help others. My whole life l wrote what l could see before it happened. Leading me to walk now only with the Holy Spirit- not the world at all. I want everyone to know we have to choose now who we will serve. The world of the mind and flesh. Or the Spirt of our Mighty God and His Son. Choose this day whom you will serve. For the time will go faster and faster as the evilness takes hold. And out of the Clouds Jesus will be. A Mighty Warrrior for you and me!!!
  • Michael on Psalms 83:18
    Thanks always be to Jehovah, and our ONLY Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only way to Jehovah. Peace be with you.
  • MockingBird on Psalms 83:18
    Jehovah is my Lord and my God : I have come to know Him more and more every day : I sometimes groan within myself wanting more and more of my Lord and Savour .If my Lord gave me all of Him in a moment of time He would know that I would burst because I would not be able to comprehend all of who and what He is !!!!!
  • Joe B. on Psalms 83:18
    I personally have fallen away and returned a few times because of stuff in my past. I have never lost sight of the " fact " that I can pray to my god Jehovah through his son Jesus for forgiveness and mercy.I feel it is very important to know which God that one prays to,after all, there is only one true god, Jehovah. Thanks.
  • Darla on Psalms 83:18
    We are known by our names, not what we are man woman . God isn 't his name, it is what he is. His name is Jehovah. When you know someone personally, you call them by their name. If I am in a crowd and yell "Mom ", no one knows who I am talking about. However, if I call her by her name, then they know. People have many "Gods ", even devil worshippers have one Satan . If I pray to God, does anyone know which God I am praying to? If I pray to Jehovah, they know.
  • Jane on Psalms 83:18
    I am so happy that I have been able to read these comments. It is so wonderful to help others understand that Jehovah is the most loving and caring heavenly ruler who has ever given mankind the opportunity to live in a paradise forever. And he has chosen his beloved son to give his life for mankind. He is soon to bring about the end of all suffering and restore paradise on this beautiful planet!!
  • Juanita McGinnisOne God and One Mediator on Psalms 83:18
    I find that a lot of people that I have asked do you know God has a personal name ? Only to find out that they did not.I showed them in the KJ. King James version of the bible Psalms 83 18 and Ex 6 3 Isaiah 12 2 42 8 They were very excited .I love to call upon the name of Jehovah when I pray . AND 1 Timothy 2 5 One God and One Mediator between God and man, Christ Jesus .
  • Nick Batchelor on Psalms 83:18
    Yahweh or Yehovah is closer in Hebrew but most of us speak English. English is English and Hebrew is Hebrew. Yeshua is closer to how the Hebrews called Jesus as we say in English.
  • Melissa on Psalms 83:18
    Clearly states Gods name is JEHOVAH, Most high over all the earth. Meaning. No one or nothing is above him not even Jesus which is his only begotten son, meaning he created him then Jesus created all other things thru JEHOVAHS Holy Spirit.
