Salvation

Jesus is “Yahweh is Salvation”—Jesus is Salvation, to the glory of his Father.

Why does Romans 10:13 read “Jehovah” in our Bible? Why does it read the same in Acts 2:21? Both of these should read “Lord”—and the scriptures clearly tell us that this “Lord” is Jesus.

“Please, Yahweh, please save us…
Blessings on him who comes in the name of Yahweh!”—Ps. 118:26, TJB

“Save, we pray! Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord!” — translate that — We know that this is fulfilled as Jesus, Jesus is “Yahweh is Salvation”— Jesus came in the name of the Lord, literally.

The Hebrew scriptures gave way to the Christian scriptures, just as the Jewish system gave way to Jesus as the Messiah, and the Son inherited from his Father—”all authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth.” And as from Father to Son, Jesus inherited his Father’s name, thus glorifying it, without uttering it once.

Then Moses said to God, ‘I am to go, then, to the sons of Israel and say to them, “The God of your fathers has sent me to you”. But if they ask me what his name is, what am I to tell them?’ And God said to Moses, ‘I Am who I Am.’ ‘This’ he added ‘is what you must say to the sons of Israel: “I Am has sent me to you”. And God also said to Moses, ‘You are to say to the sons of Israel: “Yahweh, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you”. This is my name for all time; by this name I shall be invoked for generations to come. — Exodus 3:13-15

“The God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob, the God of our forefathers, has glorified his Servant, Jesus” — Acts 3:13

“God spoke to Moses and said to him, ‘I am Yahweh. To Abraham and Isaac and Jacob I appeared as El Shaddai; I did not make myself known to them by my name Yahweh.” — Exodus 6:3

Jesus said,

““Whenever you pray, say, ‘Father, let your name be sanctified.” — Luke 11:2

“Father, glorify your name.” Therefore a voice came out of heaven: “I both glorified [it] and will glorify [it] again.”— John 12:28

“Jesus spoke these things, and, raising his eyes to heaven, he said: “Father, the hour has come; glorify your son, that your son may glorify you, according as you have given him authority over all flesh, that, as regards the whole [number] whom you have given him, he may give them everlasting life. This means everlasting life, their knowing you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ. I have glorified you on the earth, having finished the work you have given me to do. 5 So now you, Father, glorify me alongside yourself with the glory that I had alongside you before the world was.” — John 17:1-4

All these references, and many more, to ‘his name’, yet not once does he say it.

Sanctified means “set apart as or declare holy; consecrate”. And name has many meanings more than a way to refer to a person personally—such as making a name for one’s self. Moreover, we have come to be children of God and were taught by Jesus to refer to him as our Father.

“And I was thinking:
How I wanted to rank you with my sons,
and give you a country of delights,
the forest heritage of all the nations!
I had thought you would call me: My father,
and would never cease to follow me.” — Jeremiah 3:19, TJB

“Have we not all one Father? Did not one God create us?” — Malachi 2:10, TJB
