The Pharisee Name-Trap
"MAKE STRAIGHT THE WAY OF THE LORD"






John 1:23.
  It is a subtle deception that has slid into Christian teaching around the world,
often associated with the blasphemous Judaizing of Christianity in a pretence of being the original.
Christ’s
name was specially chosen for Him by God –
“…you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins
Thus His name has special significance, centred on its salvation reference, and so it therefore became a target for satanic subterfuge through the misrepresentation of the Pharisees in their opposition to Jesus, by their pretending that His name in the Hebrew language was Yeshua.
Why? To remove its salvation reference.
So, Yeshua is a lie!     Yes.  It is not true!

Matthew 1:21
chosen because
it carried a reference
to God's salvation.
The
names translated in our English Bibles today as ‘Joshua’ and ‘Jesus’ are exactly the same name in the Hebrew language. It literally means ‘Yhwh* is Salvation’ (*Israel’s covenant name for God). The same name Joshua (from the Hebrew) / Jesus (from the Greek), when transliterated into English directly from the Hebrew is Yehoshua,
but it has become fairly common-place among the naïve today to hear, even from Christian preachers,
that in Hebrew the name of Jesus is ‘Yeshua’ (leaving out the salvation reference which God had chosen).

Fallacies
This
clever Satanic slight-of-hand was later incorporated into any reference to Jesus in the Jewish Talmud which collected the Pharisees’ teachings, for it removed the special reference to salvation from His name, which was the whole purpose for God choosing that specific name for Him.
Talmudic references to the Lord Jesus include –
 •  "Jesus was a bastard born of adultery."   Yebamoth 49 b
 •  "Jesus was a magician and a fool. Mary was an adulteress."   Shabbath 104 b
    Etc.  
 
Christianity today is in no less a spiritual warfare than Jesus was during the days of His ministry, and the enemy has not changed.
Satan’s subtlety needs a Christianity that is spiritually awake, and tuned to its founding truths by more than catechisms and creeds.
