As teachers, we are to pursue accuracy, and at the same time promote unity without being "Nicolaitane" as if we are the repository of all knowledge and power. We simply follow the One Who is that repository, and He is kind and loving, and seeks, finds, and delivers us, mostly from snares and false teachings out of His great love for us. When we don't reflect His love toward others, we grieve His Spirit.

How we write and pronounce letters becomes the primary focus of some, and this can easily become a snare in itself if it overshadows the message.  A stronghold can form around a teacher and become the defining aspect that is promoted, consuming all their time and effort. There are so many things a teacher can “attack”, but if we strain out all the gnats by looking at the fine details, we may swallow a camel by overlooking the BIG picture, teaching the message of love.

Yahuah informed us we would be speaking in a foreign tongue, and our lips would be babbling as we sorted out the message:

Isa 28:9-12: “Whom would He teach knowledge? And whom would He make to understand the message? Those weaned from milk, those taken from the breasts! For it is: command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.

For with a jabbering lip and a foreign tongue He speaks to this people, to whom He said, ‘This is the rest, give rest to the weary,’ and, ‘This is the refreshing.’ But they would not hear.”  (That is, they would hear in another language, yet not obey the instructions, the Commandments). 

  In a recent article, the main emphasis pointed out the original Hebrew being the "correct", not just the "most correct".  This was obviously in the minds of those who transcribed the "old" Hebrew (aka palaeo-Hebrew) into the Aramaic letters pictured here, since the prophet's hand-writing of the Name was unaltered in the text:


– on Great Isaiah Scroll in the Hekel Sefer (Shrine of the Book) Yerushalayim, Yisrael

  There are going to be many who use alternate Greek and Latin letters to mimic the original Hebrew, and there will always be alternate ways of "phonetically" writing letter combinations reflecting the sound of the Hebrew words. The rendering "YISRAEL" may convey the intelligible sound, although the letter "i" being present is a "phonetic". "YaSHaRaL" could be the sound as well, and I actually prefer it, since it stands on the Hebrew letters as written, with little need for further "phonetic" assistance with the adding of the letter "i".  The small “a’s” inserted are unproven “vowels”, but even if incorrect the hearer would be capable of understanding the meaning in spite of a severe accent.  There is no definitive way of PROVING either as being superior however, which is why I embrace an approach that accepts others' preferences, because otherwise there are divisions, striving, and competition.  I also prefer "AL", "ALAH", and "ALAHIM".  But, I cannot prove "EL" is incorrect, so I accept both until Yahusha appears to point out the way He wants us to speak, when the pure lip is restored (Zeph 3:9). 

It will certainly not involve English, Greek, or Latin.

Remember, the one that is divisive does not have the Spirit of Yahusha (Yahudah 1:19).

  There is a mistake being promoted in some teaching videos that I should point out, and this is not to tear-down our brothers, but only to make it clear that we cannot insert ideas we may have into what is taught.  It has been stated that “YASHARAL” contains 4 roots; YASH, YASHAR, SHAR, & SHARAH. This is how distortion begins. Over-lapping “roots” in Hebrew words sends mixed, even corrupted meanings into the world. Hebrew "roots" are made up of two and sometimes three letters. For example, the Name "YaHUaH" contains the root "HaYaH" in the first part, "YAHU". The YHU combination is the component containing this root. The ending "H" stands apart from the "YHU", and operates much the same as the “H” in other names, such as “TERAH”, the father of Abram.

It is important we not group the final 3 letters, HUH, to be “another root” in the Name. “HUaH” is a root meaning destruction, ruin, mischief (H1942, H1943).


Another common mistake with new teachers involves what I call “changeling words”.

MARYA is Aramaic for master, yet some create a changeling word when they add their ideas to it. When a word sounds like "yah", some force-out the real root and insert their new spelling. The Hebrew word for the name of the city known as Jerusalem is IRSHALOM, composed of the two words IR (city, foundation) + SHALOM (peace, completeness); thus we have the meaning of "city of peace". When we see it spelled "Yahrushalom", it is inserting another meaning, although with a noble intent.  The word begins with yod-resh, not yod-hay, so it is a changeling word. This is done in many words by new teachers with shallow training. 

Another example of this is the word MARYA being spelled “MARYAH”, as if the Name “Yah” is a component of it. This is how we can be misled; so word roots need to be left as they are without embellishments added to them. 



  I have not expressed my opinions on the new so-called “original script” everyone is seeing all over the Internet, but I simply leave it alone because I believe what Yahuah said, that He would speak to this people in stammering lips and a foreign tongue. The script we are seeing depicting the pictographic hand, man with arms raised, and the tent peg for the Name is not a threat to anyone, but I want to take this opportunity to explain it in the kindest way I know how.



  It is my belief that “writing” came into existence as an invention before the flood, which is why we have the writings of Hanoch (Enoch, or Kanok) today. Writing, like musical notation or even the keyboard I’m using to express my thoughts here, is not the goal of the invention in itself, but the goal is to share ideas clearly. Since the Flood (circa 1656 AM), the oldest writings on Earth found by archaeologists include Sanskrit, Hieroglyphic, Chinese, and Hebrew – Chinese also includes a pictographic form of writing. The Natsarim teachers in China use their ancient script to teach the message to their population, showing how the compound symbols in their letters are expressions of the Truth from ancient times. Yahuah confused our languages for a purpose, so we have to recognize what He has “bent” cannot be “straightened” (Eccl 7:13).

  The prophets wrote in the script you and I promote, as you can see in the attachment the copies made of their writings into “modern” Hebrew (Aramaic) depict the Name in the form the prophets used. What is being promoted as “older” Hebrew, even the “oldest” Hebrew, is based on letter shapes derived from hieroglyphics (logograms, where symbols stood for entire words). The first use of these letters shapes were not used by the prophets, as you are about to find out.


  In the central Sinai peninsula, a rugged, arid area, Egyptians in the 19th century BCE mined turquoise from caves there. There is a site now called Serabit el-Khedem, the site of an ancient settlement where this mining operation was conducted over an approximate 800-year span of time. Expeditions from Egypt were made to oversee the extraction of the highly-valued turquoise stone, and Canaanite “Hyksos” were put to work as part of the workforce.

HYKSOS: Asiatic (Shemitic) people that migrated from the north toward Egypt around 1900 BCE and onward, making up what we call “Canaanites”, and conquered the land of Egypt just before the time of Yosef (son of Yisrael / Ya’aqob). A distinctive characteristic of these people was their “mushroom” hairdo. The pharaoh in the day of Yosef was most likely of Hyksos derivation.

I thought you’d like the mushroom-hairdo feature:


  The Hyksos were illiterate, but quite fascinated by the hieroglyphs, and attempted to leave their impressions of these “logograms” inside the caves.  Some believe they were leaving such symbols as expressions of prayers to the Egyptian deity “HATHOR” to protect them, however their symbols were very crude compared to the sophisticated hieroglyphs they were seeing at a nearby TEMPLE dedicated to the deity. Serabit’s Hathor temple was at this mining site and maintained for some 800 years. Why Hathor? She was the Egyptian deity of turquoise, referred to in the hieroglyphs as the “Mistress of Turquoise”.

Pictures of this site:

  The so-called “ancient script” (not used by any prophet as far as can be determined), originated from the scribbling on cave walls by the Hyksos/Canaanites, but this in no way should be cause for anyone to rally against those who promote it now. It’s more accurate to understand the script as “Mitsrayim/Hyksos”, although archaeologists refer to the script as “proto-Sinaitic”. Whatever we may use for it, it’s a form of writing ideas.

After much research, there is no evidence that anyone has yet found the Name of Yahuah written in the proto-sinaitic script pictured by many teachers today as ever being written anywhere, until the present day.  We can write the four letters using the proto-sinaitic script of the Hyksos, or we can write it in the script of the prophets, mistakenly called "Phoenician".  Most don't realize the word "Phoenician" is a Greek term invented by Herodotus, and it applied to the residents of the area along the coast of ancient Yisrael.  The simple truth is, Herodotus referred to the population of Yisrael with the term, "Phoenicians".  The word means "date palm".  Yisrael was a sea empire, with many colonies all over the world, Iberia (modern Spain, based on the name "Eber"), Hibernia (British Isles), Dan's Land (Denmark), even in the north and south Americas.  "London" means abode of Dan.  The Danube River is another "way-mark".  Instead of referring to the eastern Mediterranean area as "Phoenicia" as Herodotus did, scholars today call the whole area "the Levant". 

  The Hyksos didn't serve Yahuah, and so never wrote His Name, as far as we've been able to determine.

The Moabite Stone and the Tel Dan Stela both utilize the ancient alphabet, and here's what the script looks like:

 Tel Dan Stela:  

  The point of this research on the “ancient Hebrew” alef-beth was to emphasize that when it involves “origins” of things, we need to include all the information about them we can, and not exclude anything. The prophets, from Mosheh to Da’ud and YeshaYahu, and Daniel to Malaki, were writing letter-shapes found not only on scrolls, but also on bullae (impressions left by seals), stelae (monuments), pottery, and innumerable tombs and ossuaries. The Hyksos cave letters are real, however the letters used are few and only found in two or three places, all near Egypt. It is highly unlikely the palaeo-Hebrew is based on these, nor Egyptian hieroglyphics. Surely Yahuah’s people were not learning to write from anything based on the Egyptian culture, but had their own tongue and alef-beth long before even the flood of Noach’s day.  The “Angel of the Presence” (Yahuah) dictated to Mosheh on Sinai (Mt. Horeb), and Mosheh wrote in a script we call Hebrew; Yahuah Himself wrote with His Finger in stone, no doubt in the same script.
  My impression (in my spirit) is that Yahuah did NOT write in a script that originated from any previously heathen-invented script, such as we find used by the Hyksos in cave drawings, where they were mining turquoise for the “Mistress of Turquoise”, the Egyptian deity Hathor. Conversely, I believe the heathens learned to write from the Hebrews, completely the reverse of what is promoted by modern “scholarship”.
  What is easily overlooked is the lack of any physical evidence. Where is there a single tangible item that bears the four letters / symbols being seen and promoted by the books and charts? The Name can be expressed in many languages using many alphabets, but if this “discovery” has validity to it, there would be a physical object somewhere showing that someone, somewhere, that knew Yahuah, had written His Name in this way.
It is being implied that the four letters we are seeing everywhere now were actually written; yet they were not. This means the Hyksos, or Canaanite tribe that apparently originated these symbols, did not serve or write the Name in their primitive script, ever. My interest is to make it more apparent that we should give more attention to the script used by the prophets of Yahuah, which I have sampled here.

The Hyksos didn't serve Yahuah, and so never wrote His Name, as far as we've been able to determine.

The Moabite Stone and the Tel Dan Stela both utilize the ancient alphabet, and here's what the script looks like:

Tel Dan Stela:

On the Tel Dan Stela, the six letters emphasized in white are beth-yod-tau (BETH, house) and daleth-uau-daleth (the name, Da’ud), and means “house of Da’ud”.

It is the first physical evidence discovered from archaeology of Da’ud’s existence, and dates to the 9th century BCE. What is very interesting is the way the inscription depicts the letter “uau”; in our modern “type” it appears as we would print the letter u, only with the right side dropping down. The Greek inherited the letter from the Hebrew, making it “Y”, the “upsilon”, also equivalent to our letter “u”. The Moabite Stone, left above, contains the Name of Yahuah, and was a monument (stela) written by heathens that used the very same script the prophets wrote in! Obviously, the heathen’s literacy was inherited from the Hebrews, not the other way around. Here is a close-up view of the Name as it actually appears on the dark Moabite Stone:

The Los Lunas Stone discovered in New Mexico (USA) is another ancient artifact that uses the “ancient Hebrew” as the prophets wrote in. There are literally hundreds of items discovered all over the land of Yisrael that have the four-lettered Name (Tetragrammaton) written in the form above, yet not one that uses the Hyksos Proto-Siniatic script to express His Name.

When in doubt, always appeal to actual physical evidence, and don't rely solely on a letter chart to support a hypothesis.

  The study of language and writing is “deep waters”, and when those waters form a “whirlpool” we can easily be drawn away into them, and Yahusha’s work interrupted or harmed. This is a very serious problem among many teachers today, but Yahuah is using some of us to be guardians against the “strongholds” which so easily ensnare teachers and those trying to learn. Yes, we are all babbling to a great extent, but we are called to love those that Yahusha has redeemed, even in their babbling. Yahusha has redeemed a large number of babblers, and I’m so thankful to be one of them! He who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted - always put others first.  We ought not think of ourselves more highly than we should, we are all members of one another (Romans 12 – if you read this chapter at least once a week, it will keep you on the right track).

Love means never having to make someone feel inferior. Serve others, and thereby you are loving them.
