Yahweh Preached The Covenant Of Works Through Moses

You shall follow my rules and keep my statutes and walk in them. I am Yahweh your God. You shall therefore keep my statutes and my rules; if a person does them, he shall live by them: I am Yahweh.

Leviticus 18:4–5

  1. Professor isn’t Jehovah the right & proper name of the LORD, as used in our
    Reformation Bible translations, Creeds & Confessions & by our Theologians & Divines.
    Why hath the Ancient Landmark been removed?

    • Robert,

      There is no such word as Jehovah. It was a fabrication to avoid using the actual name of the Lord, which, transliterated from Hebrew is YHWH. We do not know the vowels but it is usually pointed as Yahweh. “Jehovah” was created by using the vowel points from Adonai.

    • Thanks Scott,

      I’m going to stick to the name Jehovah, it may well be “an erroneous form of the
      divine name of the covenant God of Israel which appears first about 1520 A.D.”
      as per the The New Schaff-Herzog,
      calling it a fabrication can be a bit harsh if taken in the later use,
      1.the act or process of fabricating; manufacture.
      2.something fabricated, especially an untruthful statement

      Sure it’s a composite or compound word rather, and? that doesn’t make it a
      non-word, it has Historical precedent in the English language and in our
      Reformed Religion, sure if we used the Hebrew it would be problematic, but
      were using the English language, J for Y that”s acceptable, we don’t necessarily
      need a formal transliteration, it”s the usage which makes it become the norm,
      besides that would create all sorts of problems for names in the New Testament,
      Mary for Miriam, Yoseph, what of the name of Jesus, do you prefer the Grecian
      Iēsous or Hebrew Jehoshua?

      I believe that in God’s Ordained Counsel & Singular Providence the word
      Jehovah appeared at the beginning of the Blessed Reformation as the proper
      name of God for the use of God’s Protestant & Reformed Ecclesia.
