Yahushua is the true name of the Messiah


***** Note that Joshua = Yoshua or Yahushua because there is no “J” sound in Hebrew. The “J” with its “J” sound didn’t come into the English language until about 500 years ago. In fact, the “J” isn’t even found in the original 1611 King James version.

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the Messiah’s name never was “Jesus” and that the name “Jesus” is actually an invention of man.

In the King James Version of the scriptures, we find an interesting problem in its translation:

Acts 7:44(KJV) Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness, as he had appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen. 45 Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus into the possession of the Gentiles, whom God drave out before the face of our fathers, unto the days of David;

Isn’t this scripture referring to Joshua, son of Nun rather than the Savior? Yes. Here is another instance…

Hebr 4:7 (KJV) Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts. 8 For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.

Again, the context reveals that this scripture is referring to Joshua, the son of Nun and not the Messiah. All other translations put “Joshua” here. Why then is it translated ‘Jesus’? The answer lies in the Greek/Latin corruption of the Messiah’s original Hebrew name. Originally, the name of the Messiah was SonName, pronounced Yahushua. This is the Messiah’s original name. When the Gentiles tried to transliterate His name into Greek, they came up with iesous or “Iesous”. But originally, this word was from #3091 in the Hebrew which is SonName. When Iesous was transliterated into Latin, it became “Iesus”, which was then carried over into English it became our modern day “Jesus” when the letter “J” developed.

Therefore, the reason the King James Version has “Jesus” in those two verses is because the Messiah’s name is actually the same name as Joshua, Son of Nun… correctly pronounced “Yahushua”. It is quite evident that the modern form “Jesus” doesn’t even remotely resemble the original name that the disciples were praying in, baptizing in and receiving so much criticism for preaching in. This is fact. Do some research and see for yourself.


Encyclopedia Americana:

“Jesus Christ— …Although Matthew (1:21) interprets the name originally Joshua, that is, ‘Yahweh is Salvation,’ and finds it specially appropriate for Jesus of Nazareth, it was a common one at that time.” (Vol.16, p. 41)

Encyclopedia Britannica (15th ed.)

“Jesus Christ—…The same is true of the name Jesus. In the Septuagint it is the customary Greek form for the common Hebrew name Joshua;” (Vol. 10 p.149)


Barnes’ notes: (Note on Matt. 1:21)

“His name is Jesus: The name Jesus is the same as Saviour. It is derived from the verb signifying to save. In Hebrew it is the same as Joshua. In two places [Acts 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8] in the New Testament it is used where is means Joshua, the leader of the Jews into Canaan, and in our translation the name Joshua should have been retained.”

Word studies in the New Testament, by Marvin R. Vincent—

“Jesus. The Greek form of a Hebrew name, which had been borne by two illustrious individuals in former periods of the Jewish History — Joshua, the successor of Moses, and Jeshua, the high priest, who with Zerubbabel took so active a part in the re-establishment of the civil and religious polity of the Jews in their return from Babylon. Its original and full form is Jehoshua, becoming by contraction Joshua or Jeshua.”

The Acts of the Apostles, by Jackson and Lake

“Jesus— This is the regular Greek translation of the Hebrew Joshua.”

Smith’s Bible Dictionary:

“Jesus Christ —- The name Jesus means Savior, and was a common name, derived from the ancient Hebrew Jehoshua.”

A dictionary of the Bible, by James Hastings

“Jesus — The Greek form of the name Joshua or Jeshua. Jeshua —- Yahweh is Salvation or Yahweh is opulence.”

Alford’s Greek New Testament, An Exegetical and Critical Commentary:

“Jesus — The same name as Joshua, the former deliverer of Israel.”

Encyclopedic Dictionary of Religion:

“Jesus (The Name) — Matthew’s gospel explains it as symbolic of His mission, ‘For he will save His people from their sins.’ This agrees with the popular meaning as ‘Yahweh saves…’ ” p.1886

Catholic Encyclopedia:

“The Sacred Name —- The word Jesus is the Latin form of the Greek “Iesous” which in turn is the transliteration of the Hebrew Jeshua, or Joshua, or again Jehoshua, meaning ‘Jehovah is Salvation’ ” Vol. 8, p. 374

Interpreter’s Bible: (Note on Matt. 1:21)

“Jesus: for He shall save: The play on words (Yeshua, Jesus; yoshia, shall save) is possible in Hebrew but not in Aramaic. The name Joshua means “Yahweh is salvation”

Matthew Henry’s Commentary

(on Matthew 1:21)

“Jesus is the same name with Joshua, the termination only being changed, for the sake of conforming it to the greek.”


It can be concluded then, that “Jesus” was not the Messiah’s name when He walked the earth. That is the purpose of this study.


Introduction to Color of Yahweh

Welcome everyone,

This blog is totally dedicated to the topic with the name of this blog i.e. COLOR OF YAHWEH.


To start with let us look at the scriptures:

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them,” (Gen. 1:27)

So what does this imply. The scripture doesn’t say that God created animals in His own image. Instead it says “So God created man in His own image…” The Bible is the truth that we actually cannot fathom with this worldly brains or levels of knowledge.

So to go deep into this topic I would like to point out few things. It is very clear from the scriptures that:

  • God has two eyes
  • God has a nose
  • God has a mouth
  • God has two hands with 5 fingers in each hand
  • God has two legs
  • God also has hairs
  • God has two ears

So above is a list of similarities that we can think a little about. Apart from these similarities there are millions more of similarities which I cannot enlist in this single blog. BUT then I was confused, what is the color of God’s skin and hair. What was the color of God’s eyes. Was God tall like those tall central Africans or shorter like some others, what was his height like?

So lets just start slowly. Let us look back to scriptures again,

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them,” (Gen. 1:27)


Now this scripture also tells that there is a concept of male and female in heavenly abode, even though it is usually preached that the angels are not bound to these classifications.

When I was in high school I have read about many creatures that God has created. I read through all the encyclopedia and later on I came to see in Discovery channel how the creatures in the deep seas look like. I saw that as you go deeper and deeper in the sea, the creatures start loosing skin color pigments. Like even a big fish or crab will be transparent enough to reveal their internal organs. Now here’s the turning point.


Back in high school when we read through biology books we get to know that the creatures of the deep seas are transparent in nature because they do not get the sunlight. That’s what even the Discovery channel says. We can even explain this fact with the  green leaves example. We know from the fact available in science that the leaves tend to be green in color because they absorb all the colors except green which they reflect and our naked eyes catch it.


So now that would mean light of sun plays an important role in manifesting surface colors of creatures, plant or animals. As you may know that people go to beaches for sunbath for tanning their skin to make them darker.

Let us look into scriptures again. In Genesis 1:14 it says,

And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years,”

So this scripture tells us the beginning of sun, and other related facts like times, days, and years.

Also that means from that day (Fourth Day) the sun started pouring its light over the surface of earth and its creatures.

A a deep-water ascidian found in the ocean off Tasmania.

So it is very much understood that the trees began to be green and other animals started to get varying colors on their skin. Whereas the deep sea creatures missed this chance and their skin surface became transparent. So I hope you believe in this fact that our skin color tend to get darker when exposed to sun for longer duration.

So here’s my point:

  • God was there before the sun was made. Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
  • We were made very similar to our God. Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them,”
  • Our features like hand, legs, nose, eyes, etc. and even including our skin were similar to God.

So if God was before the sun was made, when there was no light to differentiate day and night, that would mean God’s skin was not exposed at all to sun rays just like the deep sea creatures. So we can suppose that the skin color of God was transparent. Even His hairs were transparent too as it lacked exposure to sun.

And that’s what I want to put to all of humanity that the God we pray had a transparent skin and hair. He is not bound to any color. And not only that His whole body is transparent. And because of which we can not see Him but can only feel Him when He is even near us. 

 “who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.” 1 Timothy 6:16

We cannot see God because light cannot even touch the skin of God.

This small work of research was carried out just out of interest to know and make others know that God may want all humanity to be clear what He is and what powers He carries with Him. He is incomparable. Please feel free to share your thoughts with me in this blog.

This is for the glory of our God the Father. Amen.
