Why Yeshua & not Jesus!

There is only 1 weekly holy Sabbath day which in our calendar is saturday.

I am not aware of a 'prescribed amount of obedience, we just give to God what we are motivated/moved to give Him in response to His Word. It's a slow 'growing-process during our lifetime.....just as fast as the NEW MAN develops in us. We all react different.

We need BELIEF as a Beginning, but must eventually grow into DOERS of God's Word.

giving our Lord His rightful name and title will help us to identify Him from among the many FALSE Preachers and Pretenders. 

Oh well, most of the year I have to work weekends, so that's me done for.

I am sure I have been reading in Romans that it's not what false preachers call themselves, but their words and actions which betrayal their falseness.

Don't write yourself off too quick ! There is work that must be done even on the Sabbath. We are not talking about work that is purely for our own pleasure and should not be done on GOD's Holy Day. There is a difference !

Not talking about work which is purely for our own pleasure? I don't understand your sentence.

Sure by their fruits they are known ! but their title/name will usually be an indication of their actions.

They can call themselves Yeshua just as easily as any other name.

PS I am talking about my job. A job fewer than 5 people in the UK can do. A job vital for thousands of people. Highly specialised and essential.

Right....if you set out on a personal shopping spree,  redecorate your house and do other things just for your own pleasure NOT NECESSARY on the Sabbath and could be done on other days. Every Sabbath has a preparation day on which any mundane jobs can be done. as well as all the rest of the week.

Can you now answer these two questions please? I have asked before upthread.

1) what day of the week do you keep sabbath?

2) in what way do you keep it that makes it different from the other days of the week?

Shalom all

Just my two cents... 

His true name was highly likely to be Yahushua, and not Jesus (obviously) or Yeshua, which is the Aramaic form or the Hebrew Yahushua. 

For authority on this matter from Scripture alone, one should look at the prophetic actions of the prophet Zechariah.  In Zech 6:11-15, the prophet crowns the High Priest Yahushua like a king, and associates his name with "the Branch", a Messianic title. 

Yahushua was also the one who came after Moses literally (Joshua), but also symbolically, as a signpost for the next great leader Israel were waiting for. 

That said, over the many years of refusing to say Jesus Christ, I felt the Father took me through some serious lessons to shake that out of me. I came to see that context is what really matters. 

For example, if I type into an internet search Jesus Christ, who will I learn about straight away? How about typing Yeshua HaMashiach? Or how about Yahushua HaMashiach?  Either will bring me to the truth of His life and message. 

In the same way, if I'm speaking to a Christian I say "Jesus", if a Jew "Yeshua" or, if it's my preference, "Yahushua". The person knows who I am referring too, and that's the important part.  If there was ambiguity that would of course be a problem. But even the most atheist person will know who you mean when you say Jesus Christ. 

What then? Are we to expect the internet, believers and non-believers correctly understand the context but not God? Should we be expecting God to be eager to catch us out, saying "Aha! You said Jesus! I assign you to deception and darkness!  You should have said the right word!" I don't think so. 

Therefore, go easy on each other with the name. Be cool. 

If some haven't had the draw to use His real name, so be it, as long as they walk according to His ways. If some have had the conviction to use His real name, let them, they're only doing what they feel is right, as long as they walk according to His ways. 

BUT, if we fall out with each other (or even speak harshly) over pronunciations and names, you are walking contrary to His ways.  Such a person could be in danger of the Judge saying "So you judged others over terminology and names did you? Fine, now let's examine how well YOU did with this".  Oye.  Let's hope we all avoid be judged by our own short-sighted standards. 

Love & Shalom to you all, in the name of our Lord Yahushua, aka Yeshua HaMashiach and known worldwide as Jesus Christ.
