Earlier today I was browsing Facebook pages that belong to people who are on my friends list when I came across a sister who uses the Hebrew word "YAHshua" to describe our Master. This is the message I sent her. I would love your comments below – especially if you disagree with the conclusions of this note. However, I ask that you respect this conversation and take the time to review my references.
My dear sister,
I noticed your profile just now and it brought a smile to my face to read Jeremiah 6:16 and how we are to walk on the ancient paths. That is a wonderful verse.
Next, I noticed that you call our Master by the word "yah-shua" (יהשוע). I have something very, very important to share with you about that Hebrew construct.
First, it isn’t even a word in Hebrew. It isn’t found once in Scripture, but the real Name of our Master, "Yeshua" (ישוע) is found 30 times in the Tanach (29 times in Hebrew and once in Aramaic). It is something that someone fabricated and it has spread throughout our circles.
You may know that it is supposed to mean "YAH" and "saves". You may have heard that "shua" (שוע) means "saves". Actually, the Hebrew verb for "to save" is "yasha" (ישע). The word "shua" (שוע) does mean something, but what it does actually mean will shock you.
The two words are related. The verb "shua" is the PUAL form of "yasha". A pual verb form takes the verb and intensifies it and shifts it’s focus to the subject. Instead of the verb describing something the subject is doing, the verb describes something that IS BEING DONE TO THE SUBJECT. That is what a Hebrew pual verb form does. The following document will introduce you to this concept: Introduction to Hebrew Verbal Patterns, Stems, Binyanim PDF.
What "yah-shua" actually means is not that "YAH saves" us, but that "YAH cries out for help", God forbid. It means the opposite of what our Saviour’s name actually means. Do you understand the significance of that? It is blasphemy. When someone says "YAHshua" in Hebrew they’re actually saying that "YAH cries out for help". They’re saying that YAH needs someone to save Him, God forbid! It is foolishness and wickedness. I’m sure that hasatan laughs whenever he hears someone say such a blasphemous thing.
I don’t know the origin of this blasphemy, but I hope that you will carefully consider your involvement with it. I realise that this will come as a shock to you, since so many are using this word and are convinced that it is perfectly right. You will be skeptical of what I have told you because you probably have never heard this before and I’m some stranger you don’t know.
So, I hope that you will invest a little of your time to listen to the following lecture in two parts. It will help you to understand this better.
The Name of the Messiah Part #1
The Name of the Messiah Part #2
If you are convinced that what I have told you is true I would appreciate a short reply to tell me that you have received this message with the love it was intended.
Peace and grace,

PS: Something I forgot to mention in my letter to this sister is that this Hebrew word, "shua" (שוע) appears in Job 30:24b.
