Have You Been Baptized in the Name of “Jesus” to Wash Your Sins Away? If So, You Have Been Baptized into the GREEK Name Transliterated From “Iesous,” Which in Hebrew Means “Horse”! YAHusha is the Messiah

“Neither is there Salvation in any other. For there is NO other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” – Acts 4:12

If your like almost all followers of the Christian religion,  you have been baptized into the name of “Jesus” (many have been baptized in “the name of the Father and the Son and the ‘Holy Spirit.’) But What is the Father’s Name? The “Set-Apart Spirit” of Elohim is NOT a person like we have been taught, but is the Ruach Ha Kodesh OF Elohim. So, what exactly does this name “Jesus” mean, and where did it come from?

If one looks at the picture of the 1599 Geneva scriptures below, you will see the name “Iesvs.” This is Latin and sounds like “hey-soos.”

But the Latin is taken from the Greek name Iesous, which can be pronounced “ee-ay-soos.” or Yay-soos.” And where did they get the Greek name from? Well, the Latin name “Iesvs” came from the GREEK name “Iesous,” which came from the corrupted Hebrew name “Yeshua,” which came from the corrupted name of “Yehowshuwah,” which came from what I believe is the real Transliteration of the Name of the Messiah, which is “Yahusha.”

Let’s start off with the name of the Messiah first to get a foundational understanding of what His Name should be.

I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.” John 5:43

Kodesh Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.” John 17:11,12

I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.” John 17:6

But what is the Name of the Father? Is it “God” or “LORD” or “Jehovah?” NO! The word “God” means ‘Gad,’ a false sovereign, while the word “LORD” means “BA’AL” in Hebrew, while the name “Jehovah” is not even Hebrew or Greek, and therefore cannot be a correct transliteration of the Father’s Name at all.

You see, the practice of substituting the real Name of the Father, which is YHWH (Tetragrammaton [from Greek τετραγράμματον, meaning “{a word} having four letters” [Hebrew: יהוה‎], for the term “LORD” was begun by the Jews hundreds of years before Messiah. The Jews did not want to pronounce or mispronounce the name of YHWH out of reverence, and also because they did not want to violate the commandment that says, “You shall not take the name of Yahuah your Elohim in vain, for Yahuah will not leave him unpunished who takes His name in vain.”

But many Scriptures tell us to remember and proclaim the Father’s Name, and the scriptures only warn against “misuse,” “blaspheming” or in ordinary terms, “taking lightly” the Name of YHWH. The scriptural texts strongly suggests that the people of the scriptures—including the patriarchs—used the Name of YHWH, with a wealth of scriptures supporting this notion.

Instead of using YHWH, the scribes simply put the words “LORD” or “LORD God” to hide the Father’s Name. The title of YHWH is “Elohim,” and this word was replaced by the word “God” over 6,000 times.

We read in the book of Revelation: “and yet you have kept my word and HAVE NOT DENIED MY NAME.” Rev. 3:8

So, if Messiah came in His Father’s Name, and there is NO other Name by which men can be saved, and we are instructed to NOT deny Messiah’s Name, we had better find out what His Name is!

“…Behold, the LYING pen of the SCRIBES has certainly worked deceit and WRITTEN them WRONG. The wise are ashamed; they are terrified and are captured.” Jeremiah 8:8

Realize that for nearly 1,500 years AFTER the Messiah walked the earth, the world had NEVER HEARD the name “Jesus.” The sound of the letter (j) has NEVER existed in the Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek or Latin languages! And these are the languages in which the Scriptures were recorded! 

Before the 12th century, the letter (j) didn’t even exist in the Old English language. The new sound caused the letters (I) and (Y) in the English language to be replaced with (j), also causing male names that began with (I) or (Y) to be replaced with the j because the hard sound was considered more masculine. So, names like “Iames” became “James”, “Yohan” became “John,” and so on.

Then in 1384, John Wycliffe translated the New Testament into English for the first time, his only source being the Latin Vulgate. Wycliffe continued to use the Latin spelling and pronunciation “Iesus.” Tyndale translated the New Testament into the English language of the common people and was the first to use the letter (j) in the spelling of Messiah’s Name, rendering it “Jesus.” And about the same time, Spanish-speaking people took this same English spelling and pronounced it “Hay-soos”(which is an accurate pronunciation of the Greek spelling).

The King James Version of 1611 rendered every name in the scripture that begins with the letter (J), thus we have has “Jeremiah,” “Jerusalem,” “Judah,” “Jordan” River, “Jew,” etc.

Now realize that soos is a legitimate Hebrew word!  The name Jesus transliterated into Hebrew is “yay-soos.” The following three verses will show the word soos being used in its original and true form, and it does NOT mean salvation, but rather “horse!”

Ps.33:17: “The horse (Heb. hey-soos) is a vain hope for safety; neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.”

Ps.147:10: “He does not delight in the strength of the horse (Heb. hey-soos); He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man…”


Zech. 14:15: “Such also shall be the plague on the horse (Heb. hey-soos), the mule, on the camel and the donkey, and all the cattle that will be in those camps.  So shall this plague be.”

There is only ONE word for “horse” in Hebrew, which in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance is Hebrew word #5483 “soos.” It is used a total of 34 times in the Old Testament. “Hey” in Hebrew means “the,” “Soos” in Hebrew means “horse,” so Hey-soos literally means: “THE HORSE!”

Hebrew is the language of the Father and all the heavenly host, with the Savior’s Name coming from YHWH’s throne in heaven. And the Hebrew-speaking Apostles NEVER called their Messiah “soos” – HORSE!  So, just so we are all aware, ‘soos’ does not mean Savior, nor salvation, nor deliverance – it means: HORSE.

So, to recap, “Jesus” is derived from Strong’s Greek #2424 Iesous, pronounced yay-soos, which the ‘soos’ is the Hebrew word for “horse.” And remember that the Apostle Paul heard the heavenly messenger of the Messiah say in Hebrew “soos” each time one of the horses was mentioned of we hear in the book of Revelation.

“But I say to you that EVERY idle WORD men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of JUDGMENT. For by your WORDS will you be justified, and by your WORDS will you be condemned.” Matt.12:36-37

Now Messiah said He came in His Father’s Name which is YHWH, but how do we pronounce this Name? Many think it to be “Yahweh,” but this is incorrect, although it DOES contain the abbreviate Name of the Father. The following three verses give the abbreviated Name of YHWH.

“I said, ‘I won’t see Yah, Yah in the land of the living. I will see man no more with the inhabitants of the world.'” Isaiah 38:11 World English

“But we will bless Yah, from this time forth and forevermore. Praise Yah!” Psalms 115:8 World English

 “Let everything that has breath praise Yah! Praise Yah!” Psalms 150:6 World English 

And the YHWH has kept His abbreviated Name throughout the thousands of years in the word halelluYAH! The first part of this word is hallel in Hebrew, and it just doesn’t mean to “praise,” but means a JOYOUS praise in song, to BOAST in YHWH. The second part of the word is Yah (Jah in some renderings), and is the first two letter of YHWH. HalelluYah is PRONOUNCED the same in 2,400 languages and means to bring a joyous praise to Yah and is found 24 times in the Hebrew scriptures.

Now if you look up the name “Jesus” in the Strong’s lexicon it has “Iesous”:

  • “2424 Iesous ee-ay-sooce’ of Hebrew origin (3091)”

Here are the KJB concordance numbers: “These428 are the names8034 of the men376 which834 Moses4872 sent7971 to spy out8446 (853) the land.776 And Moses4872 called7121 Oshea1954 the son1121 of Nun5126 Joshua.3091

It traces the name of Messiah to Hebrew word #3091 in the Strong’s lexicon, which is the same name as “Joshua, Son of Nun.” It is important here to note that a Greek transliteration of the Hebrew scriptures that was completed many years before Messiah came to earth rendered the Hebrew name “Yahushua” as IhsouV (Iesous). There is also evidence that although the name of the Messiah was written in Greek as IhsouV, it may have actually been pronounced the way a Hebrew speaking person would pronounce it. Around 178 CE, a pagan by the name of Celsus engaged in written debates with Believers, in one of them saying of Believers:

“But of course they think otherwise: they assume that by pronouncing the name of their teacher they are armored against the powers of the earth and air. And they are quite insistent on the efficacy of the name as a means of protection: pronounce it improperly, they say, and it is ineffective. Greek and Latin will not do; it must be said in a barbarian tongue to work. Silly as they are, one finds them standing next to a statue of Zeus or Apollo or some other god, and shouting, “see here: I blaspheme it and strike it, but it is powerless against me for I am a Christian.”

The pagans thought that the Hebrew language was nothing more than a barbarian language.

In the Strong’s concordance and other Hebrew Lexicons, the pronunciation listed for the Messiah’s name is typically “Yehoshua.” But the reason for the “Yehoshua” pronunciation is due to the Hebrew vowel pointing added by the Masorite scribes, which are the little dots and dashes under and above certain Hebrew letters. Hebrew was written with mostly all consonants and it was up to the reader to supply the vowels in each word based on the context of the word. Since they didn’t want people to say the Heavenly Father’s name, they pointed the Heavenly Father’s name to produce the sound “Yehovah.”

YHWH are the Hebrew letters Yod, Hay, Uau(waw) and Hay. As we have already learned, the first two letter are pronounced “Yah,” as in halelluYah! There is no letter “W” in the Hebrew, and the letter “double-U” came into existence in only parts of western Europe during the 13th century. The Hebrew letter commonly seen as “waw” is more accurately expressed as a “UAU,” since it conveys the sound of “U,” and sometimes “O.” When the letter “hay” is followed by a “uau,” the sound is to be “OO,” as we hear in the word “halleluYah.” That “u” sound you hear in “halleluYah” is the letter “uau.” The tribe of Judah is actually “YAHUDAH” and is spelled YOD-HAY-UAU-DALETH-HAY.

Notice the four letters in this five-lettered word. It’s as simple as saying “YAHUDAH” without the sound of the letter “D”: YAHUAH. So, the Name of the Father is “Yahuah.”

 The Name of the Son is the same as that of Joshua son of Nun(#3091), which is YOD-HAY-UAU-SHIN-AYIN, and is transliterated as Yahusha, and YOD-HAY-UAU-SHIN-UAU-AYIN, and is transliterated as Yahushua. Yahusha is 216 times in scripture, while Yahushua is found 2 times in scripture. In Deuteronomy, Yahusha is used 7 times, while Yahushua is used once. In Judges, Yahusha is used 5 times, while Yahushua is used once.

Yah means “I Am,” while SHUA and SHA both contain the Hebrew root, yaSHA, meaning deliverance. So Yahusha means, “I Am your Deliverer!” Yahusha did in FACT come in His Father’s Name!

“But while he thought on these things, behold, the Messenger of Yahuah appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Yoseph, you son of David, fear not to take unto you Miryam (Mary) your wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the (Ruach Ha Kodesh=’Holy Spirit’ OF Yahuah). And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call His Name Yahusha: for He shall deliver His people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of Yahuah by the prophet, saying,

‘Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel’, which being interpreted is, (Eloah) with us. Then Yoseph being raised from sleep did as the Messenger of Yahuah) had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Yahusha.”

It is important to note that the form “YESHUA” has been adapted to form the acronym “YESHU,” a mutilation of Yahusha’s Name used by unbelieving Yahudim during the late 1st and 2nd century CE. The letters in “YESHU” stood for the sentence, “may his name be blotted out” (from the scroll of life).  This “Yeshu” acronym is the real root of the form “JESUS”, after going through Greek, then Latin.

“And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me and saying in the Hebrew language, ‘Sha’ul, Sha’ul, why do you persecute Me? It is hard for you to kick against the prods.’ And I said, ‘Who are You, Master?’ And He said, ‘I am Yahusha Anointed One whom you persecute.'” Act 26:14,15
