Messianic Apologetics

Addressing the Theological and Spiritual Issues of the Broad Messianic Movement

Divine Name YHWH/YHVH

How many of you have been in a Messianic religious setting as of late where you have heard someone use the words God, or Lord, or even Jesus Christ—and then someone gets up and publicly chastises the person? How many of you have been told that if you do not use Hebraic names and terms for the Father and the Son that your prayers will neither be heard nor answered?

In encountering various materials and teachings that carry labels like “Messianic” or “Hebrew Roots,” have you seen the proper name of God, YHWH/YHVH, used quite affluently? Has it even been implied that various scribes and religious authorities have purposefully hidden the Divine Name? What is Sacred Name Onlyism?
