“My Name is Yahweh”

The exact phrase “My Name is Yahweh” appears only one time in the Bible – Jeremiah 16: 21.  What Yahweh said at that moment is crucial.  To understand the context, you need to read Jeremiah 16: 19-21:

“O Yahweh, my strength and my stronghold, and my refuge in the day of distress, to You the nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, ‘Our fathers have inherited nothing but falsehood, futility and things of no profit.’  ‘Can man make gods for himself?  Yet they are not gods!  Therefore behold, I am going to make them know — this time I will make them know My power and My might; and they shall know that My name is Yahweh.’”

These verses refer to an event that hasn’t happened yet.  The day is coming when people from all over the world will stream to Jerusalem seeking Yahweh and His truth.  When they arrive, they will say, “Our fathers have inherited nothing but falsehood, futility and things of no profit.”

Yahweh’s response is intriguing.  He says, “Can man make gods for himself?  Yet they are not gods!  Therefore behold, I am going to make them know — this time I will make them know My power and My might; and they shall know that My name is Yahweh.”

From Yahweh’s response, it’s obvious that man can make gods for himself, and they give them other names.  It’s been happening since the beginning, but there is only One true God — Yahweh.

Something dramatic is about to happen.  I think it will rival if not exceed the things Yahweh did when he delivered the Children of Israel from bondage in Egypt.  I’ve drawn this conclusion because of Yahweh’s final statement: “Therefore behold, I am going to make them know — this time I will make them know My power and My might; and they shall know that My name is Yahweh.”

I think Yahweh is angry.  He revealed His truth to the prophets, and they recorded it meticulously in the Tanach, or the Old Testament.  What did men do?  They stripped His Name from the Bible and placed titles where His Name belongs.  This Yahweh never intended and He doesn’t condone.  There are many reasons why I know this, but the most obvious one is that we have salvation in only one Name — Yahweh.

That’s what Yahweh said. (Isaiah 43: 11)  That’s what Joel said. (Joel 2: 32, Joel 3: 5 in the Tanach)  That’s what Peter said. (Acts 2: 21)  That’s what Paul said. (Romans 10: 13)

It doesn’t get any clearer than that, and you can’t find a better list of witnesses.  Yahweh is going to make sure that everyone knows who He is by Name.  At the end, He will make sure that they get it by declaring His Name Himself, probably along with great signs and wonders to emphasize the point.  For believers, it will be a time of rejoicing.  For people who have rejected Him, it will be their worst nightmare.
