There is only (((one))) Name above ALL other names!
It is either YaHUaH or YaHUShA, it can’t be both! Many would immediately “prove” from Philippians 2: 9-10 that YaHUShA is that very name without a thorough investigation or evaluation of the Scriptures (The Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings).
Philippians 2: 9-10 states, “ELaHYM, therefore has highly exalted Him [referring to YaHUShA] and given Him [referring to YaHUShA] THE NAME [SINGULAR] which is above every name, that at the name of YaHUShA every knee should bow, of those in heaven and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that YaHUShA Messiah is Master to the esteem of ELaHYM the Father.”
So I would like to pose a very simple question: Does “THE NAME [singular] above all other names” referring to Messiah’s earthly name YaHUShA? It is said that it was “given Him THE NAME” (singular), but should we regard that Name as “YaHUShA”, as so many Messianic’s believe or do they find themselves misguided, or deceived? And if so, how should “at the name of YaHUShA” be interpreted?
Therefore, the above words in Philippians can only take on full meaning when they are compared to the rest of the Scriptures (The Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings) because no single scripture is of any private interpretation (i.e. your own opinion, implied from Kepha Bet [2 Peter] 1:20) and Scripture must always be compared to Scripture (Corinthians 2:13) and because of this, the Word stands in its own defense when it says that two or three witnesses establish a matter (Deut. 19: 15). Therefore, we can only conclude that the words of Sha’ul in Philippians is merely based upon Yeshayahu 45: 23-25 (a direct paraphrase);
“I [referring to YaHUaH] have sworn by Myself, a word [singular] has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, SO THAT EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW, EVERY TONGUE SWEAR. One shall say, ‘ONLY IN YaHUaH do I have righteousness and strength’ – he comes to Him [referring to YaHUaH]. And all those displeased with Him [YaHUaH] shall be put to shame. In (((YaHUaH))) all the seed of YShREL shall be declared right and boast”
At first glance, it seems that the words in Philippians contradict that of the prophet Yshayahu. It seems the one says that every knee will bow to YaHUShA and the other says that every knee will bow to YaHUaH. But in retrospect the one is affirming the other! In stating that YaHUShA was given “THE NAME above all other names” the writer is trying to make us understand that “the Name of YaHUShA” is that of the Father YaHUaH. Messiah’s own words testify to this important fact when He prayed to the Father and said, “guard them in YOUR NAME WHICH YOU HAVE GIVEN ME”(Yochanan 17: 11) and much later when He stated in Revelations 3: 12 “He who overcomes, I shall make him a supporting post in the Dwelling Place OF MY ELaHYM and he shall by no means go out. And I shall write on him THE NAME OF MY ELaHYM and THE NAME OF THE CITY OF MY ELaHYM, the renewed Yerushalayim, which comes down out of the heaven FROM MY ELaHYM, AND MY (((RENEWED))) NAME.”
Many people regard the earthly name of Messiah called YaHUShA as that INHERITED NAME spoken about in Hebrews 1: 4, yet Scripture clearly refer to His INHERITED Name as that of “MY ELaHYM” who was and will always be His Father “YaHUaH” and Daniel 9: 18 and 19 confirms even further that the “CITY OF MY ELaHYM” is called YaHUaH and not YaHUShA! Therefore when the writer explains in Philippians that YaHUShA was given “THE NAME above all other names”, he was merely affirming the words of the Psalms when they said, “I bow [i.e every knee shall bow] myself towards Your set apart Hekal (temple), and give thanks to Your Name, for your loving commitment and Your truth; for You [refering to YaHUaH] have made great Your Word [singular] YOUR NAME ABOVE ALL” Psalms 138: 2
His earthly nameS (notice the plural) was MERELY PROPHETIC in nature. He appeared unto Mosheh as the Malak (messenger) MichaEL.Ma’asei (Acts) 7: 38-39 The “mi cha” part means “who IS” and “EL” is a poetic short form for “ELaHYM” (“Strong Authority”) therefore MichaEL in some instances could literally be a question “who is EL?” but in this particular reference I believe it is pointing to the Melak (messenger) YaHUShA “who IS ELaHYM”! When this messenger was raised up, he was given two names for a very spisific reason. The one being ImmanuEL meaning “EL with us” or rather “ELaHYM with us” and to Maryām it was said to call Him YaHUShA (“YaHU Saviour” or “YaHUaH Saviour”) but upon His resurrection he obtained the “Sacred Name” as His permanent INHERITANCE! It became His new Name, a “more excellent Name”! Because it was no longer temporary! He is now able to come in His own Name as “YaHUaH” rather than just “in the Father’s name”. Which is why Scripture even confirms when it says, “Near is the great day of (((YAHUAH,))) [Not YaHUShA] near and hurrying greatly, the noise of the day of (((YAHUAH.)))” Tsephanyah (Zephaniah) 1:14, 15
He will not return as YaHUShA (his earthly name) but with His inherited Name YaHUaH on Yom TerUaH.
It is also important to understand that (((we will also))) INHERIT the “Sacred Name” Ma’asei (Acts) 15: 13-18 and Ibrim (Hebrews) 6: 10-12, although we are now known as the followers of YaHUaH, we shall only later after the resurrection and after our quickening into “eternal life” inherit the “Sacred Name” (YaHUaH) and we will stand in unity having ONE family name!
When he spoke of “My Name”, or when his disciples referred to doing something like baptism or something else “in the Name of YaHUShA” it is a reference to His “Sacred Name”! This should answer the question on how should “at the name of YaHUShA” be interpreted? And YaHUaH is the only name in the entirety of the scriptures said to be sacred. At no time is it even suggested that the earthly name of Messiah called “YaHUShA” or “ImmanuEL” is of this everlasting, eternal or “Sacred” character. For example see, Tehillim (Psalms) 33:21; 103:1; 105:3; 106:47; 145:21; Luqas 1:49; 11:2 In the Psalms for example we read, “They shall thank your great and fearful name, it is sacred.”(Tehillim 99:3; 111:9) Yeshayahu refers to YaHUaH as “the high and lofty one who inhabits eternity, and His name is sacred.(Yeshayahu 57:15) When the Messiah taught His disciples to pray, the opening line acknowledges, “Our Father who is in heaven, sacred be Your name”. Neither is this merely an opinion of men, YaHUaH Himself refers to it as, “My sacred name”(Lev 22:2,32; Ezek 20:39; 36:21,22; 39:7,25; 43:7-8; Amos 2:7)
So coming back to my question: Does “THE NAME [singular] above all other names” referring to Messiah’s earthly name YaHUShA? The answer is simple: Not in this age or the age to come! Thousands upon thousands of people are misguided and deceived!
THERE IS ONLY ONE NAME ABOVE ALL OTHER NAMES! The body of Messiah is unified under (((one))) Name Ma’asei (Acts) 15: 13-18 (“that they may be one as we are one”) Yohanan (John) 17: 11, 21, not divided into parts. In Ephesians 3: 13-15 for example, Sha’ul states:
“I pray therefore, that you do not lose heart at my pressures on your behalf, which is your ESTEEM. For this reason I bow my knees to the FATHER (((YaHUaH))) of our Master YaHUShA Messiah, from whom the whole family of heavens and earth IS NAMED.” These words brings more understanding to the very reason why he would also end with these words in Philippians when he said, “and every tongue should confess that YaHUShA Messiah is Master to the ESTEEM of ELaHYM the Father.”
The single body of Messiah has but (((one))) Name shared by the Father the Son and the Set Apart Spirit.They are known by the same name! “What is His Name and what is His Son’s Name, if you know it? (Proverbs 30:4) Sha’ul is only quoting Debarim (Deuteronomy) 28: 10 (((YaHUaH))) says that the peoples of the earth will know that all YShREL is “called by the Name of YaHUaH.” And Dibre haYamim Bet (2 Chronicles) 7: 13-14 also states, “…My people who are called by my Name…”
