Does the Name “Jesus” Mean “Hail Zeus?”

By Maria Merola אריאל

In this study, I am going to share similarities between the Greek pagan deity known as Zeus,” and the Greco-Roman version of the Yahuwdiy (Jewish) Messiah known today as “Jesus” pronounced “Geezus.”

I understand that this is a very sensitive subject, and it is difficult for people to accept the fact that the person whom they have come to know as “Jesus Christ,” has had his identity marred and by the heathen nations. The identity and character of our Messiah has been altered to such a degree, that his true image is barely recognizable from the original Yahuwdiy (Jewish) Savior whose name in Hebrew is Yahuwshuwa haMashiyach. 

It should come as no surprise that his image has been covered up by the heathen nations, so that their version of him resembles a Greco-Roman god from Mythology. It was prophesied long ago by the prophet Yeshayahuw (Isaiah), who foretold that Messiahimage would be marred beyond recognition. Although this prophecy is about our Messiahs crucifixion, it also has an added layer of understanding, pertaining to his identity being married

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 52:

14 As many were astonished at you; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

15 So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

We can see by this prophecy, that not only was his physical body marred beyond recognition, but even his “image” has been marred. Our High Priest, Melchizedek (The King of Righteousness), who is the Lion of the Tribe of Yahuwdah (Judah), has been made to appear more like the Roman-Greek god named Zeus. 

Was this done on purpose? 

YaHuWaH, our Heavenly Father allowed his “visage” to be marred, so that he could “Sprinkle many nations” (Isaiah 52:15) with his blood, and thus lead them out of paganism. What follows is my own personal testimony of how the Ruwach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) spoke to me concerning about his true name.

Back in the summer of 2006, I was in a season of fasting and prayer, and I had a question for the Heavenly Father. I asked him: “Does the name Jesus really come from Zeus, and if t his is true, how was I born-again in 1981 using this name? I continued to seek him, asking him What name shall I call you, and what name shall I call upon for salvation?” 

I was confused about whether or not the Greco-Roman name of “Jesus” really came from Zeus. I had heard the arguments on both sides, and I was not really sure what to believe about this. That is when the Ruwach ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit) taught me a very profound truth.

He revealed to me a pattern in scripture, whereby the prophets of old were given heathen names while they were in exile. Such people were: Esther, Joseph, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (among others). This was the norm when the Yisraelites (Israelites) were sent into heathen nations into exile. YaHuWaH allowed this, so that they could be relevant to their pagan cultures, and still do mighty exploits for the Elohiym of Yisra’el. 

But then came the moment of truth, when their true identity, (and the identity of the one whom they served) had to be revealed. Esther went “incognito” in the Persian Palace in order to save her people. Even though her real name was Hadassah, she took on the Babylonian name “Esther,” at the request of her uncle and guardian, Mordechai. 
The name “Esther,” is a variant of the pagan goddess named “Easter” or Ishtar, from Ancient Babylon.

Nevertheless, Queen Esther was sent into the Persian Empire “undercover” to save the Kingdom of Yahuwdah (Judah), from complete annihilation. And it is through the Tribe of Judah,” that our Messiah was destined to be born (Genesis 49:10; Revelation 5:5; Hebrews 7:14). It was after Esther was used mightily to save the Yahuwdiym (Jews) in Persia, that her true name and identity was finally revealed to King Ahasurerus, her husband.

The Ancient Hebrew name for Joseph is 
“Yahuwseph, as it is spelled this way in Psalm 81:5, using all 5 Hebrew Consonants.

The truncated form of “Yoseph,is missing the name of our Heavenly Father (Yahuw), at the beginning of the name. 

Joseph’s true Hebrew name was hidden for a season, until he won favor with Pharaoh, and was able to reveal his true name and identity. During his reign in Egypt, Pharaoh gave him an Egyptian name:

Bereshiyth (Genesis) 41:45 And Pharaoh called Yahuwceph’s name Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Yahuwceph (Joseph) went out over all the land of Egypt.

#6847 Tsophnath Pa`neach tsof-nath’ pah-nay’-akh of Egyptian derivation; Tsophnath-Paneach, Joseph’s Egyptian name:--Zaphnath-paaneah.

In the Blue Letter Bible, it says the following about his Egyptian name: 

Zaphnath-paaneah “salvation of the ages” or “treasury of the glorious rest.”

Now, what is very interesting is that this name Zaphnath-paaneah
also comes from the Hebrew form of the name of the prophet Zephaniah which literally means “Yah has secreted!”

#6846 Tsphanyah tsef-an-yaw or Tsphanyahuw {tsef-an-yaw'-hoo}; from 6845 and 3050; Jah has secreted; Tsephanjah, the name of four Israelites:--Zephaniah.

The Egyptian meaning of this name Zaphnath-paaneah means “salvation of the ages” but in Hebrew it means “revealer of a secret!” You can see by the Hebrew root word here below that this name means to keep something a secret, to hide, to reserve an appointed time in history:

#6845 tsaphan tsaw-fan’ a primitive root; to hide (by covering over); by implication, to hoard or reserve; figuratively to deny; specifically (favorably) to protect, (unfavorably) to lurk:--esteem, hide, lay up, lurk (be set) privily, (keep) secret-ly, place).

Now why is this significant? 

Because the prophet Zephaniah or Tzephanyahuw is the one who was given an very important end-time prophecy about how the secret name of our Creator would be revealed to us in the last days!

Tzephanyahuw (Zephaniah) 3:9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of YHWHto serve him with one consent.

It now becomes apparent that at Messiah’s first coming, he was fulfilling the role of “Mashiyach Ben Yahuwceph” (Messiah son of Joseph), and just like Joseph, he also had a “hidden name” among the gentiles. 

And just as Joseph revealed his true name and identity to his brothers, our Messiah is being revealed to the true children of Yisra’el in these last days. As he is getting ready to return for his elect of Yisra’el, he is now revealing himself as “Mashiyach Ben Dawiyd” (Messiah son of David).

Some people erroneously quote Revelation 19:12 in an effort to try and prove that our Messiahs name is not known to humanity. But this argument fails, because we are told in the Book of Acts, that calling upon his name is the basis of our salvation. Therefore, we have scriptural documentation for the true name of our Messiah, and that his name is the doorway to the Father.

Maaseh Shlichiym (Acts) 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Yisra’el, that by the name of Yahuwshuwa haMashiyach of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom Elohiym raised from the dead, even by him does this man stand here before you whole

Maaseh Shlichiym (Acts) 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 

The name written that no man knew is revealed only four verses later, in Revelation 19:16:

Chazown (Revelation) 19:16 And he had on His vesture and on his thigh, a name written, King of Kings and Master of Masters [Lord of Lords].

Chazown (Revelation) 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 

What is being expressed in the above verses, is that we do not know our Messiah in this office yet, because he has not yet returned, to step into that role. It does not mean that his name cannot be known, for this would mean that we have no name to call upon for salvation.

And yet, the adversary, has tried his best to hide the true name and identity of our Messiah from us, by inspiring “The lying pen of the scribesto alter the letters to his original Hebrew name in the nations. However, for those who truly desire to know his name, he is eager to reveal it to us:

Amowc (Amos) 3:7 Surely YHWH Elohiym will do nothing, but he reveals his secret unto his servants the prophets.

The Jewish Sages have long believed that there are two types of Messiah’s foretold in the scriptures. In some prophecies, he is portrayed as “The suffering servant” (a type of Joseph). Yet, in other prophecies, he is seen as “The conquering reigning king” (a type of King David). Because of these two portrayals in prophecy, the Jewish people have a difficult time recognizing our Messiah as the one who would come to earth in two different roles (at two different times in history) to redeem 
“Both Houses of Yisra’el (Isaiah 8:14).

The true sons of Yisra’el are now being shown his “hidden name,” just as Joseph revealed himself to his eleven brothers when they came to buy grain in Egypt. 

Joseph’s brothers did not recognize him at first because he had a hidden name given to him by Pharaoh which was Zaphnathpaaneah” (Genesis 41:45). When Joseph removed his Egyptian costume and told them his real name, the sons of Yisra’el were all restored back to him and there was reconciliation!

Daniel and his three Hebrew companions from the House of Judah were also given Babylonian pagan names for a time:

Daniyel 1:

6 Now among these were of the children of Yahuwdah (Judah), Daniyel, Hananiah, Mishael, 
and Azariah:

7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniyel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.

The Ruwach ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit) taught me the same thing about our Messiah, as he was also given a gentile name in the nations, to reach them for the kingdom.

In 162 B.C, the Syrian-Greek dictator known as Antiochus Epiphanies erected an image of Zeus on December 25th in the 2nd Jewish Temple. This piece of history, serves as a pattern for us to observe, and to learn how to recognize the Anti-Messiah leader who will repeat history in the end of days. The story of the Maccabees is a prophetic “shadow,” and a precursor of things to come in the future. 

Therefore, it is likely that history will be repeated in much the same way. It is entirely possible that the end-time “man of sin” (2nd Thessalonians 2:3) will repeat the same pattern, by erecting an abominable image of either himself, or some other type of “Image to the beast” (Revelation 13:14). It remains to be seen, just how closely the end-time scenario will mimic the events of the past. However, I postulate, that the “man of sin” might set up an image in Solomons Temple on December 25th. 

It could even be an image resembling what people have come to recognize as artist depictions of “Jesus.” But I would speculate that it could also be a hybrid of some kind, created from the DNA of “Jesus” found in the Shroud of Turin, (the alleged burial cloth of Messiah found in his tomb). 

The adversary has been busy for the past 2,000 years trying to trick and deceive the elect into worshiping him, under the guise of the true Messiah. Therefore, it should not shock us that Satan has influenced the lying pen of the scribes to incorporate the name of “Zeus” into the English translation of the Bible.

Pictured below is an excerpt from the 1611 King James Version in Luke 4:27. The original name of “Elisha” was altered to contain the name of “Zeus” on the end of the name, rendering it as Elizeus! If you think was done merely by happenstance, you obviously do not know how cunning Satan is. 

In the 1634 printing, the King James translators changed the spelling to Eliseus, but it is still pronounced as Eli-Zeus! What does the name 
“Elisha” mean in Hebrew? 

The name Elisha is #G477 in the Strong’s Hebrew Concordance, and it is spelled: Eliysha which means “Elohiym is Salvation” or “God is Salvation.” 

The Hebrew word for “God” is Eloah (singular) or El for short; the plural form is Elohiym

Then verb “sha” on the end means “salvation,” and this forms the compound word for the name Eliysha. Why then, did the English translators change his name from Eliysha, which means “God is my salvation to EliZeus which means “My God is Zeus?

Even if the translators themselves made an honest mistake, the devil does not make these kinds of mistakes, for he has an agenda to deceive the nations into worshiping him (Isaiah 14:12). Therefore, we can be certain that the adversary meant to inspire the scribes to interpolate the name of “Zeus” into the scriptures. It should be obvious from this evidence, that there has been a conspiracy to alter the name of our Savior to Zeus. 

The only reason why people still can be saved calling upon the name of “Jesus” is because the Ruwach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) prays through us, and for us, as he interprets the deep groaning of our hearts according to (Romans 8:26-27). 

Our Messiah is like Joseph who was a “Saviour” to the Egyptians, under the guise of a gentile name Zaphnathpaaneah. Yet, to his Hebrew brothers, he was known by his true name. The name “Joseph,” (Yahuwseph),  literally mean “YaHuWaH will add” or “YaHuWaH shall increase.” In the same way, our Messiah’s name also contains the Heavenly Fathers name (Yahuw) at the beginning of the name. The Hebrew name for Joshua is is Yahuwshuwa meaning “YaHuWaH is salvation.”

On February 10th 1981, I cried out to my Heavenly Father in the name of “Jesus Christ” and he heard my cry and delivered me from deep demonic oppression. My life was dramatically changed and I was filled with the Holy Spirit that night. For those of you who have not known the true name of our Messiah in times past, it does not mean that you were never saved! 

I have encountered people within the “Sacred Name Community” who have tried to insinuate that all those who used the name Jesus in times past (out of ignorance), were never saved. These people will try and tell you that you were never saved when you were calling upon the name of “Jesus Christ,” but they are wrong.

The Ruwach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) searches out our hearts and he interprets the name “Jesus” as the secret hidden name of Yahuwshuwa before the throne!

Romiym (Romans) 8:

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities (weaknesses): for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

27 And he that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because he makes intercession for the saints according to the will of Elohiym.

In these last days, however, YaHuWaH is restoring his remnant to “A pure language” as prophesied: 

Tzephanyahuw (Zephaniah) 3:

8 Therefore wait you upon me, says YHWH, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of YHWH, to serve him with one consent.

It is time for us to stop resisting what the Ruwach ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit) is doing in these last days, as he is giving us revelation of the name that is above all other names. The one and only name that we are to call upon for salvation is the name of our Mashiyach (Messiah) Yahuwshuwa (Acts 4:12). 

Let us not be stagnant, but let us move with the Ruwach ha’Qodesh. In the wilderness, the children of Yisra’el had to keep on moving with the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night. If they remained stagnant, they would be left behind, as the rest of the camp would keep on moving. If they lagged behind, they would be stampeded and trampled upon, as the rest of the sojourners kept on moving. We are in that day, and hour right now, as YaHuWaH is raising the bar. He is asking us to come up higher, by learning his true name!

Why Did the Greeks & Romans Transliterate the Name of Salvation?

Praise Jesus or Hail Zeus?

In Latin the term “Io” means “hail” or “praise.”

During the Winter Solstice in Ancient Rome, (between December 17th -25th), it was customary for the people to celebrate the pagan god “Saturn,” whom they claimed was going to be reincarnated by December 24th, (three days and three nights) after the sun supposedly “dies.” These ignorant heathens of antiquity, had no understanding of how the celestial bodies in the heavens were ordained by our Creator for keeping time (Genesis 1:14-16). Therefore, they believed that the sun was a deity, rather than a created object to be observed. 

The graphic below illustrates a gathering at “Stonehenge,” as these pagans are worshiping the sun. Nothing has changed since the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11, as these same pagan beliefs continue to be practiced. 

On the Winter Solstice, (December 21st), the earth is tilted furthest away from the sun, making it appear that the sun was “dying.” In reality, the earth was simply making a full revolution on its orbital course around the sun. The heathens believed they had to offer up human sacrifices and animal sacrifices to “Appease the gods,” so that the sun would come back to life. By December 25th, the earth rotates closer towards the sun, giving the impression to the heathens, that their sacrifices and prayers are being answered.

Just as the heathens at Stonehenge are celebrating the rebirth of the sun, the Ancient Romans shouted praises to one of their gods, named Saturn, exclaiming in Latin “Io, Saturnalia, Io, Saturnalia!” They also exclaimed shouted praises on December 25th to “Sol Invictus,” which means “The Invincible Sun!”

This was a day for orgies, child sacrifices, drunkenness, gluttony, over-indulgence of the flesh and debauchery. By the third century, B.C. the Roman Emperor Constantine, changed the face of Christianity, by altering the identity of our Messiah. Not only did Constantine assign “The rebirth of the sun,” on December 25th to our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa. 

During the rise of Imperial Rome, many of the Ancient Greek customs of pagan mythology began to merge with Roman ones. The Greek god Zeus was also called Jupiter in Rome. The mantra of “Io Saturnalia” in Rome, also began to be applied to the god Jupiter, which is the same god as the Greek “Zeus. Therefore, “Io Zeus,which means “Hail Zeus, sounds eerily similar to the Greco-Roman name for the Jewish Messiah, whom the Greeks call Iesous. 

Many linguists, scholars, and theologians relegate these similarities to “pure coincidence,” and therefore, they debunk the notion entirely that our Messiah’s name was altered to make it sound as if people are praising “Zeus.” 

*Disclaimer: I am in no way suggesting that the Greek name Iesous, (Jesus) was deliberately altered by humans to mean “Hail Zeus.However, the similarity in the pronunciation makes me wonder if Satan himself is the one who arranged it this way, even if humans did not. We know that “The serpent was more subtle than any other beast in the field, (Genesis 3:1); therefore, it is not far-fetched to believe that the adversary would want to alter the one  name given to humanity for salvation. To think that the devil wouldn’t dare to do such a thing, is incredibly naïve. 

Now, even though the Greek letters in “Zeus,” are not the same Greek letters found in Iesous, a case can be made for Constantine (who had a vehement hatred for all things Jewish) wanting to create a hybrid name,” for the Jewish Messiah. This would certainly make him appear Greco-Roman, to appeal to the heathens throughout the Roman Empire.

Because the world of Academia would try and debunk this notion that the name Greco-Latin Iesous, was altered to sound like “Io Zeus, I will only postulate that this seems highly possible to me. But for the sake of not appearing to prove this linguistically, I will simply relegate this notion to pure conjecture and supposition. Nevertheless, it all seems too suspicious to me, that Satan would not desire to corrupt the one true name of salvation. Furthermore, when coupled with the fact that our Messiah’s date of birth was changed to December 25th by Rome, (and Zeus was celebrated on this date in Ancient Greece), we can hardly ignore the so-called “coincidence. 

Translate versus Transliterate

Before I address the historical background of how the name “Yahuwshuwa” was shortened to “Yeshua,” and then finally changed to “Jesus,” I want to explain the difference between “translate” and “transliterate.”

To translate a word from one language into another language means to take the meaning of a name from one language into another language.

*Example: the word “salvation” in Greek is “soteria,” but in Hebrew, the word for “salvation” is “yeshua.” If we want to translate the word “salvation” from Hebrew (yeshua), into Greek, we would use the word “soteria.”

But to transliterate a name means to correlate the letters from one alphabet to another alphabet.

*Example: the name of our Messiah is Joshua in Ancient Hebrew which is YahuwshuwaIn Modern Hebrew, it is rendered as Yehowshuwa. The Hebrew letters in this name (Joshua) are as follows: Yod, Hey, Waw, Shin, Waw, Ayin (YHWSWA).

If one were to transliterate the name Joshua into Greek, the corresponding six letters should be as follows: 

Hebrew Yod = Greek Iota.
Hebrew Hey = Greek Epsilon.
Hebrew Waw (Vav) = Greek Upsilon.
Hebrew Shin = Greek Sigma.
Hebrew Waw (Vav) = Greek Upsilon.
Hebrew Ayin = Greek Omicron.

Therefore, the corresponding letters to the Hebrew YaHuWShuWA (Joshua) should be rendered in Greek as IEUSUO.

However, the Greek letters that are used to “transliterate” from the Hebrew YaHuWShuWA (Joshua) are not accurate. The Greek spelling amounts to: IHSOUS.

Hebrew Yod = Greek Iota.
Hebrew Chets = Greek Eta.
Hebrew Shin = Greek Sigma.
Hebrew Ayin = Greek Omicron.
Hebrew Waw (Vav) = Greek Upsilon
Hebrew Shin = Greek Sigma.

As we can see, the Greek translators were not honest in transliterating the Hebrew name YaHuWShuWA (Joshua) using the corresponding Greek letters. For if they had, the name would be IEUSUO rather than IHSOUS.” 

One has to wonder why they added an extra letter “Sigma at the end of the name “Joshua,when it clearly does not match the Hebrew “Ayin.Additionally, the IHS (Iota, Eta, Sigma) has been widely known to express the Egyptian pagan trinity of sun worship, for which the Roman Catholic Church has adopted into its Mystery Religion. In Ancient Egypt, this trinity is known as Isis, Horus & Set.

The Greek Strong’s Concordance claims that the name “Jesus” means the following:

Strong’s #G2424 – Iēsous ησος Jesus = “Jehovah is salvation.”

The English rendition of the Heavenly Father’s name is seen above as “Jehovah,” but there is no letter “J” in Ancient Hebrew, neither is there a letter “V” as in “Vav” in Ancient Hebrew. The Modern Hebrew letter “Vav” was at one time a “Waw,” and it makes the sound of the “uw” as in “long u” or  “ow” as in “long o.” Sometimes it also makes the breathy “who” sound. 

Therefore, the name “Jehovah” should be “Yahuwah.” Hence, the meaning of the name “Jesus” they claim from above is “Yahuwah is salvation” rather than “Jehovah is salvation.”

But the word Jesus cannot be an actual translation from Hebrew to Greek for Joshua, because if the Greeks were actually trying to translate the name of our Messiah (Joshua) in Greek, it would be “Yahuwsoteria” meaning “Yahuwah is salvation.” Therefore, we can now prove that the name Jesus is neither a translation, nor is it a transliteration!

As I already illustrated, if the name Joshua was to be transliterated into Greek, it would be IEUSUO rather than IHSOUS.” 

Who Changed the Name of the Messiah? 

Pictured here is an illustration of the way the name “Joshua” is spelled in the Greek Septuagint. As you can see by this graphic, it did not have the second letter “Sigma” on the end!

The name “Joshua” was originally spelled as follows in the Greek Septuagint:

Iota, Eta, Sigma, Omicron, Upsilon = Iesou

There was no “Sigma” on the end of the name Joshua originally in the Greek Septuagint! The Greek language did, in fact, have a correct translation for Joshua as far back as 300 B.C. 

So who changed the Greek name of Joshua from IEUSUO to IHSOUS?” 

In the 2nd Century, a Gnostic by the name of Origen began a school in Alexandria Egypt where he transcribed a corrupted text of the Greek New Testament (called the Alexandrian Text). 

Origen did not believe in the deity of our Messiah, Yahuwshuwa. He also taught that Yahuwshuwa was not Elohiym  manifested in human flesh. He viewed our Messiah as a reincarnation of all the pagan gods in the Pantheon. 

Origen, actually believed that Yahuwshuwa was a reincarnation of Zeus!

Do you smell a rat yet? It now makes sense, why he deliberately scrambled the letters in Joshua, making them appear as the Egyptian Trinity of Isis, Horus & Set, with the ending as “Sous,” which is an ending commonly used to denote something, or someone belonging to Zeus.

In the 3rd Century, Eusebeus (a Bishop of Caesarea) was hired by Constantine to make 50 Bibles for him in Latin Vulgate. Eusebeus used the corrupted Alexandrian Text, (that had been greatly tampered with by Origen). That is when the Roman Priesthood standardized the name of IHSOUS!This name in Greek lowercase letters appears as Iesous. The uppercase Eta, looks like the English H, but the lowercase eta looks like the English lowercase e.

It makes no sense that the Alexandrian translators transliterated the name from the Hebrew Yahuwshuwa to the Greek Iesous, when the Septuagint already rendered it as “Iesou.”

Who changed it, and why was this done? An explanation can be found at this source:

“In the 1611 King James Version New Testament the name Yahuwshuwa appeared originally wherever the Messiah was spoken of. Yahuwshuwa means “Yahuwah is salvation” (Jehovah is salvation). Later the Messiah’s name was replaced with the Latin “Hesus” or “Iesus” which became “Jesus” in the 1600’s with the invention of the English letter “J” which was introduced at that time. Furthermore, the Greek “Iesus” comes from the name ‘Zeus,’ the ruling god in the Greek pantheon.” ----- Gospel of The Kingdom True Names and Title Dr. Henry Clifford Kinley 1931 - Ohio USA.

See this website for more documentation about how the Greek Septuagint was sabotaged by Origen the Gnostic in the 2nd Century: 

Let me show you how sneaky these Gnostics were in the 2nd Century, when they altered and removed words from the Greek New Testament. You see, in Modern Greek, the spelling of “Zeus” was gradually changed to “Dias.” In Latin, the word for God (Zeus) is “Dios.” Just look up the word for “God” in any Italian or Spanish Bible, and you will see the word “Dios” which comes from the Modern Greek name “Dias” for the Ancient “Zeus!” Now, with that in mind, let’s take a look at this verse in the King James Version:

Matthew 8:29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

Now, let’s take a look at the very same verse in the Spanish Bible:

Mateo 8:29 Dios Habla Hoy (DHH)

y se pusieron a gritar:—¡No te metas con nosotros, Hijo de Dios! ¿Viniste acá para atormentarnos antes de tiempo?

Hijo de Dios = Son of Zeus (God)!

Now, let’s take a look at the Italian Bible:

Matteo 8:29 Conferenza Episcopale Italiana (CEI)

Cominciarono a gridare: Che cosa abbiamo noi in comune con te, Figlio di Dio? Sei venuto qui prima del tempo a tormentarci?

Figlio di Dio = Son of Zeus (God)!

I realize that for many of us who grew up learning the name of “Jesus,” it is difficult to accept the fact that Satan would want to tamper with, and sabotage the true name of our Messiah. It is frustration to learn that he wants to swap identities with him. But why should that surprise you? Why would Satan go to great measures to change the Sabbath day from the Seventh day of the week, to “Sun-day” (after the pagan sun-god). Are we so naïve as to think that Satan would leave the name of salvation alone?

Proof of this can be found in Professor J.C.J. Melford’s book entitled: “Dictionary of Christian Lore and Legend “ (1983, page 126). This is what he wrote:

“Jesus” is supposed to be the Anglicized equivalent of the Greek Iesous but really, if it is, it is troubling to say the least. The English name ‘Jesus’ stems etymologically from ‘Jupiter-Zeus’ the chief god of the ancient Greek Olympus -- the coded occult appellation evolving from ‘J-Zeus’... ‘J-sus,’... ‘Je...sus,’ to ‘Jesus’….. 

Some authorities, who have spent their entire lives studying the origins of names believe (and they are without doubt quite correct) that ‘Jesus’ actually means (according to the rules of the Greek language) – ‘Hail Zeus!’…. 

For Iesous in Greek IS ‘Hail Zeus.’ That is, ‘Ie’ translates as ‘Hail’ and ‘sous’ or ‘sus’ is Zeus. The Jesus of modern Christendom is nothing more than the Egyptian form of Jupiter-Zeus, Serapis….

….It is known that the Greek name endings with ‘sus, seus, and sous’ [which are phonetic pronunciations for the chief Greek god of Olympus] were attached by the Greeks to names and geographical areas as a means to give honour to their supreme deity, Zeus.’….

So, Tarsus is the ‘sweat of Zeus,’ and other ancient sites also carry reference to the chief god of Mount Olympus (‘Ephesus’ etc). Thus, Parnassus was a sacred mountain in Greece; ‘Dionysus’ the son of Zeus, was a Greek deity of wine; Odysseus was the Greek hero of the Trojan War, and rather surprisingly the pagan Greek god of healing was none other than Ieusues (a variant spelling of Iesous/Jesus).”

I often hear people trying to rationalize that the name “Jesus” is simply a transliteration of the Hebrew name of “Joshua” from Greek into to English. These same people will try to tell us that the name “Jesus” has nothing to do with the pagan deity named “Zeus.” But the fact of the matter is, proper names of people (especially important people) should never be transliterated nor translated! 

When famous musicians have gone to foreign countries to perform, people such as Michael Jackson, the Beatles, Elvis Presley, etc., their names were not translated nor transliterated! When it came time to announce them onto the stage, the person doing the announcing would speak in their foreign language but they would still pronounce the name of these famous people the way that it should be pronounced in English. 

The Greeks and the Romans therefore had no authority to change the name of our Creator. They should not have transliterated nor translated the name of our Messiah. But furthermore, the names Ieosus & Jesus are NOT, I repeat NOT translations, nor are they even transliterations! Neither of these names are direct transliterations from the Hebrew name Yahuwshuwa (Joshua)

The Greek Septuagint Name for Joshua

Some people would argue that since the Greek Septuagint went into print around 285-246 B.C., (and the name Joshua in Greek is translated as Iesous), this is “proof” that the name Jesus could not have come from Zeus. They rationalize that there is no conspiracy to change the Messiah’s name to Zeus.

The Greek Septuagint (at least Genesis to Deuteronomy) was translated into the Greek language for the Alexandrian Jews. This part of the story comes from early church historian Eusebius (260-339 AD). Scholars then claim that “Jesus and his apostles used this Greek Bible instead of the preserved Hebrew text.” But a careful study reveals a conspiracy to eradicate the Hebrew Masoretic text in order to promote a “Gnostic Greek Jesus.” Read the evidence about the Greek Septuagint by clicking on the link below:

And thus, all modern translations today use the corrupted Revised Greek Text for the New Testament that was dramatically altered by two men named “Hort & Westcott” in the 1850’s in England. These men were Jesuit Spies who were working for the Vatican and the New World Order agenda. They were also followers of Madam Blavatsky’s Luciferian Doctrine. But the King James Version uses the Hebrew Masoretic Text for the Old Testament and the Greek Textus Receptus for the New Testament.

But how can we be sure that our Messiahs name is really Joshua? Well first of all, when you look up the word for Jesus in the Greek Strongs Concordance, it is #2424 and it says that the name is Iesous which the definition for is “Jehovah is Salvation” and it references the Hebrew #3091 which is Joshua. Since there is no letter J in Ancient Hebrew, nor is there a letter V in Ancient Hebrew, the Creators name is not JeHoVaH but rather it is YaHuWaH

In the 6th chapter of Zechariah, we see a prophetic picture of the Messiah as the High Priest named Joshua whose name is called “the Branch” and he receives “many crowns.” That name for Joshua in the Ancient Hebrew pictographs is seen as six Hebrew Letters: Yod, Hey, Waw, Shin, Waw, Ayin represented by these six English Letters: YHWSWA. The lower case vowels have been added to help aid in pronunciation as YaHuWShuWA. 

Zechariah 6:11 is a Messianic prophecy of the future High Priest who would come after the order of Melchizedek (Malkiy-Tzedeq).

Another reliable source that gives further evidence about the name Jesus coming from Zeus is from the deceased Messianic Jewish Evangelist and historian Art Katz, who cites the origins of the true name of the Messiah and the Elohiym of Israel from his former website:

The original Hebrew or Jewish name of the professing Jewish Messiah, who was accepted as such by a certain section (some 3000 souls) of Israel, at and after His Appearance in Israel, some 2000 years ago. To them, he was known as Yahuwshuwa (abbreviated: Y’shuwa, also spelled in modern Hebrew as Yehowshuwa or Yeshuwa). In time, over the first few centuries after Messiah, His Name was gradually changed to “Je-Zeus Khristos” by the pagan masses who converted and joined the originally Jewish Messianic Sect.

Out of this, Christianity was born, which was a mixture of originally pure Judaism, and gradually, progressive influences of pagan customs and traditions, together with a growing tide of an anti-Semitic spirit. This was greatly due to the instigation of influential leaders like Constantine the Great, who was a Zeus worshiper, and who purportedly converted to Christianity. 

It was also a natural process as a result of the infiltration of followers of the sun-god, Zeus, into the Christian ranks. Even the name of their pagan idol Zeus was applied to their new-found Jewish Messiah, and Y’shuwa (the abbreviated transliteration of Yahuwshuwa), became “Y’Zeus” or Je-Zeus, which became ‘Jesus’ in English (NOTE: the middle ‘s’ is pronounced as a ‘z’). In other languages, it took on various other forms.

Art Katz’s biography is at this website:

Andrew Gabriel Roth of Netzari Press cites in his Aramaic English New Testament (AENT):

Y’shua to Zeus


While it is true that Iesous became the Greek substitute for Yehoshua (Greek Septuagint translation of the Tanakh), it is also true that the Greek language is very capable of reproducing the name of Yehoshua (Y’shua) with exact sonic pronunciation. However, an etymological link evolved between Iesous, Zeus, and Jesus, pronounced: Ie-soos, Zoos; and Jee-zuhs. 

Regardless as to whether one recognizes sonic similarities or not, there are many other factors that connect the Christian worship of Jesus to Zeus. Notice “Elizeus” in the 1611 King James Version (Luke 4:27), spelled exactly as seen here, is a name that weds the pagan deity Zeus with the Elohim of Israel. While this is clear evidence of a blatant pagan connection to Zeus worship, we’ve only begun to scratch the surface.

Historians have noted that for many centuries busts of Zeus were prominently displayed in many Christian churches throughout Europe – not only Catholic Churches where idolatry is a normative, but also in “Orthodox” churches. The original busts of Zeus were imported into the most prominent front and center parts of “Christian sanctuaries.” 

Rav Shaul’s letters had not been heeded by the Church. In the year 230 C.E. the Christian “Church Founder” Tertulian wrote: “But [Gentile Christian] who are strangers to (Jewish) Sabbaths, and new moons, and festivals, once acceptable to God, the Saturnalia, the feasts of January, the Brumalia and Matronalia are now frequented, with gifts being carried to and fro.”

Early in Roman church history it was very fashionable to syncretize pagan worship into Christianity. One of the most evident pagan elements is the sun-child of December twenty-fifth who became the son-child of “Mary the mother of God.” Ishtar, from where the fish symbol originated, was also a carry-over into Christianity, and transubstantiation is another pagan rite that was ripped right out of paganism and dropped into the Easter wafer, in which most Christians indulge.

Another Messiah Invented By Constantine

Below you will read some very well documented historical background on where the name of Jesus Christ actually originated:

Constantine’s intention at Nicaea was to create an entirely new god for his empire who would unite all religious factions under one deity. Presbyters were asked to debate and decide who their new god would be. Delegates argued among themselves, expressing personal motive for inclusion of particular writings that promoted the finer traits of their own special deity. Throughout the meeting, howling factions were immersed in heated debates, and the names of 53 gods were tabled for discussion. “As yet, no God had been selected by the council, and so they balloted in order to determine that matter... For one year and five months the balloting lasted...” (God's Book of Eskra, Prof. S.L. MacGuire’s translation, Salisbury, 1922, chapter xlviii, paragraphs 36, 41). 

At the end of that time, Constantine returned to the gathering to discover that the presbyters had not agreed on a new deity but had balloted down to a short list of five prospects: Caesar, Krishna, Mithra, Horus and Zeus (Historia Ecclesiastica, Eusebius, c. 325). Constantine was the ruling spirit at Nicaea and he ultimately decided upon a new god for them. To involve British factions, he ruled that the name of the Druid god, Hesus, be joined with the Eastern Saviour-god, Krishna (Krishna is Sanskrit for Christ), and thus Hesus Krishna would be the official name of the new Roman god

A vote was taken and it was with a majority show of hands (161 votes to 157) that both divinities become one God. Following long-standing heathen custom, Constantine used the official gathering and the Roman apotheosis decree to legally deify two deities as one, and did so by democratic consent. A new god was proclaimed and “officially” ratified by Constantine (Acta Concilii Nicaeni, 1618). 

That purely political act of deification effectively and legally placed Hesus and Krishna among the Roman gods as one individual composite. That abstraction lent Earthly existence to amalgamated doctrines of the Empire’s new religion; and because there was no letter “J” in alphabets until around the ninth century, the name subsequently evolved into “Jesus Christ.”

It should come as no surprise that Satan has devised close counterfeits of the genuine Messiah. The Apostle Sha’uwl accurately stated that Satan is able to “transform himself” into an angel of light:

2nd Qorintiym (Corinthians) 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

This deception is nothing new. Satan had already been busy preparing for thousands of years since the Garden of Eden to deceive mankind into accepting a false Messiah. He knew very well what the scriptures had to say in prophecy concerning the coming of the Messiah. That is why the Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul) warned the Corinthians not to be “beguiled” or deceived by “Another Yahuwshuwa:”

2nd Qorintiym (Corinthians) 11:

3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Mashiyach (Messiah).

4 For if he that comes preaches another Yahuwshuwa, whom we have not preached, or if you receive another spirit, which you have not received, or another gospel, which you have not accepted, you might well bear with him.

As you can see, Sha’uwl (Paul) was very concerned that the Corinthians (who were former pagans) were all too ready to “bear with” or tolerate any false teacher who would come along preaching a close counterfeit or “Another Yahuwshuwa.” That is why we must diligently preach the real Messiah of the Hebrew Scriptures, and not a Greco-Roman counterfeit.

Satan Wants to be the “Bright” Star or the Sun-Deity

It is no accident that the brightest star in our solar system is the sun, and our Messiah is called “the bright and morning star”:

Chazown (Revelation)  22:16 I Yahuwshuwa have sent my angel to testify unto you these things in the congregations. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

In the King James Version, the Hebrew Masoretic Text is accurately translated showing that the fallen angel Lucifer is merely a “son” of the morning star (Messiah). You see Mashiyach (Messiah) Yahuwshuwa is the one who created all things, including Lucifer (Colossians 1:16). The name Lucifer is Latin for “light bringer” and that name was added by the English translators in the King James Version in italics (indicating that it was not in the original text). 

However, the term “son of the morning” is accurately seen in Hebrew as “heylel ben shachar.” The Greek Septuagint inaccurately calls this fallen angel the “morning star” which in Hebrew would be “boker kowkab,” but that is not what appears in the Hebrew Scrolls!

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 14:12 (KJV) How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 14:12 (NIV) How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!

As you can see above the New International Version (which comes from the Greek Septuagint) calls Lucifer “The morning star” but that title “morning star” is reserved for our Messiah as seen in Revelation 22:16. Lucifer is merely a “son” (a created being) not the morning star himself. In the book of Job, the Hebrew translation for “morning star” is accurately seen as “boker kowkab:”

Yowb (Job) 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of Elohiym (God) shouted for joy?

This shows that the Greek Septuagint is not being honest with the translation! They are insinuating that Lucifer and Yahuwshuwa are both the same being! This is precisely the philosophy of Gnosticism! Gnosticism teaches that the Messiah did not come “in the flesh” or as a mortal human being. 

Gnosticism purports that the Messiah is a “consciousness” that has rested on various individuals throughout history and therefore they do not believe that our Messiah would come in the form of a human being who would then “destroy sin in the flesh.” You see the true Mashiyach (Messiah) Yahuwshuwa came “in the likeness of sinful flesh” (Romans 8:3) so that he could destroy the weakness of the mortal human nature that is subject to temptations. 

In order for Yahuwshuwa to qualify as our Messiah, he had to have a perfect sinless nature spiritually (having the sinless blood of the Father YaHuWaH). And yet at the same time, he had to be able to be subject to temptations as we are in order to conquer the weakness of sinful man (even though he was not a sinner). In other words he had to have both natures at the same time!

Ibriym (Hebrews) 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Yahuwshuwa had a human nature that was able to be tempted yet he had the perfect sinless blood of his Father, YaHuWaH Elohiym with no sin in him. Why do we need to understand all of this?

Because one of the identifiers of being able to discern the Spirit of Anti-Messiah is any spirit that does not confess that Yahuwshuwa Mashiyach “is come in the flesh.”

All modern translations of the Bible taken from the “Revised Greek Text” do not keep this key identifier in the scriptures, but the King James Version gives us this important “litmus test” to be able to discern the “Spirit of Antichrist.”

1st Yahuwchanon (John) 4: (King James Version):

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1st Yahuwchanon (John) 4:3 (New International Version):

1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 

2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 

*Note: “has come in the flesh” in the past tense is not the same thing as “is come in the flesh” in the eternally present tense as seen in the King James Version.

1st Yahuwchanon (John) 4:3 (New International Version):

3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from GodThis is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

*Note: As you can see, the Revised Greek text has removed the important litmus test that tells us how to identify the Spirit of Anti-Messiah as being one who does not acknowledge that the Savior Mashiyach Yahuwshuwa “is come in the flesh.” They instead give a very weak criteria as one who “does not confess Jesus.” 

But there are many false religions who “acknowledge Jesus” (even Muslims acknowledge him), but they do not believe he is the Messiah nor do they believe that he was the Son of Elohiym who came in the form of a human being who would then destroy sin in the flesh. Gnostic New Age religions believe that “The Christ is a consciousness” who is able to rest on everybody and there is no person who is exclusively called “The Messiah” or “The Christ” except for “The Fifth Maitreya Buddha.”

Now we can understand why pagan sun-god worship is such a serious violation of the Towrah and a sin that leads to death. Yahuwshuwa ha’Mashiyach is the “sun of righteousness” but Satan wants to be the “sun” and that is why he has deceived many into worshiping the created object (the sun itself) rather than the one who created the sun:

Malakiy (Malachi) 4:2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.

You see there are many things in creation that are used as metaphors our Messiah:

The lamb, the red heifer, the sun, the bright and morning star, the scapegoat, the rock, the living water, the bread from heaven, the tree of life, the serpent on the pole, the alef and the tav (the sacrificial animal nailed to two sticks).

But we do not worship these objects!

We are commanded not to worship Elohiym in the form of something created. We are to worship YaHuWaH Elohiym “in spirit and in truth.” Idolatry occurs when humans want to worship the creator in the form of something created (animals, trees, etc).

Romiym (Romans) 1:25 Who changed the truth of Elohiym into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Messiah Yahuwshuwa had a created body from the beginning of creation (Hebrews 10:5) but in his pre-incarnate existence as YaHuWaH Elohiym he is the creator himself (Colossians 1:16). This means that we do not worship the metaphor or the object used as a symbol of the Messiah, but we worship YaHuWaH Elohiym. The Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul) illustrated this concept many times in his letters:

Maaseh Shlichiym (Acts) 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwells not in temples made with hands: as says the prophet,

Maaseh Shlichiym (Acts) 17:24 Elohiym that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Master of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands;

Maaseh Shlichiym (Acts) 19:26 Moreover you see and hear, that not alone at Ephesus, but almost throughout all Asia, this Shauwl (Paul) has persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands:

And so this is how Satan has cleverly been able to deceive people into worshiping him in the form of these objects (which are meant to be metaphors only). He shifts people’s focus off of “the lamb slain from the foundations of the world” and instead makes people worship the object itself or the metaphor.

Similarities Between Zeus & Yahuwshuwa Messiah

As I already mentioned above, between the years 164-167 B.C. (before Messiah came to earth), Antiochus went into the 2nd Jewish Temple and set up an abominable image of Zeus the pagan sun-god on December 25th and claimed that he was a reincarnation of Zeus on December 25th. He gave himself the title “Epiphanies” which in Greek means “God Manifest” as he claimed that he was a reincarnation of “God” on December 25th.

Interestingly, the word “Epiphanies” adds up to 666 in the Greek alpha-numeric system. Antiochus was a precursor to the final Anti-Messiah who will come before the second coming of YaHuWShuWA and he will “sit in the temple of Elohiym, showing that he is Elohiym” (2nd Thessalonians 2:4).

When the angel Gabriel appeared to Miriyam (Mary) the mother of Yahuwshuwa, he did not tell her to give him a Greek name. Gabriel said to name him Yahuwshuwa “for he shall save” his people.

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name YAHUWSHUWA (not JESUS): for he shall save his people from their sins.

Whose Birthday Are You Really Celebrating? J’Zeus or Yahuwshuwa?

The Greeks called their supreme deity “Zeus,” but in the first century, many Greeks began to assimilate our Messiah from the tribe of Yahuwdah (Judah) to their favorite supreme deity. 

They began placing the Hebrew letter “Yod” in front  of Zeus as “Y’Zeus.” Yah the shortened form of YaHuWaH, meaning “The self-existent one.” From “Y’Zeus,” the Greek letter “Iota” replaced the Hebrew Yod, and thus, the name Joshua became “Iesous.” 

Later-on in the 1500’s (when the English translation of the Bible went into print), a new letter was added to the alphabet---the letter “J.” It was meant to sound like a “Y” sound, but it gradually took on the hard “G” sound. Hence today, the name “Jesus” sounds like “Geezus” rather than the Greek “Iesous.”

*Note: Some people would argue that the name Jesus does not have the Greek Letter “zeta” (equivalent to the letter z in English). Therefore, they rationalize that it cannot be a direct transliteration from Zeus. However, it is easy to see that the name Jesus is pronounced as “Geez-us” with the first letter “s” making the “zee” sound and the final letter “s” making the “s” sound. If the devil was not trying to make people worship Zeus (by using the name Jesus), why then do we not pronounce Jesus as Jess-us with both letter “s’s” making the “s” sound?

In 325 A.D., Constantine a Roman Emperor, in an attempt to unify the Roman Empire, combined this same pagan religion from Babylon with so-called Christianity. Constantine worshiped “Mithra” the pagan sun-god born December 25th. He believed he could bring unity to Rome by keeping this pagan religion and combining it with Christianity. So he wrote the Edict of Milan and he disfellowshipped the Yahuwdiym (Jewish) believers in the true Mashiyach Yahuwshuwa.

But Constantine did not remove the statues from the pagan temples but instead he gave them “Christian” names. He named Venus “Mary” and he named Sol the pagan sun-god “Jesus.”

He wrote:

“…the Jews are dogs and the Christians should have nothing to do with the Jews…God has shown us a better way…”

There many were other pagan deities whose birthdays were celebrated on December 25th:

Nimrod, Saturn (Saturnalia in Rome); Mithras, Horus, Attis, Dionysus the son of Zeus, Zeus (Greek) or Jupiter (Roman); Tammuz (Ezekiel 8), Hercules, Osiris, Perseus, Helios, Bacchus, Apollo, Sol Invictus - (The “Unconquered Sun”).

And so now we can see why it makes perfect sense that the Greeks took the Hebrew Letter Yod (which means the arm) and they placed that in front of the name “Zeus” because it is name of their supreme deity who was born on December 25th. The Yod in front of Zeus became as Y’zeus in the first century and then later on in Latin it became Ieosus.

Satan Counterfeits Zeus & J’Zeus (Jesus) by Creating Similarities after Yahuwshuwa Messiah:

Zeus: The name Zeus is related to the Greek word dios, meaning “bright.” His other attributes as well as lightning were the scepter, the eagle and his aegis (this was the goat-skin of Amaltheia).

Yahuwshuwa: He is called “The bright and morning star” in Revelation 22:16. He is given a scepter to rule the nations (Genesis 49:10, Isaiah 45:6). He is also the Yom Kippur “scape-goat” while Satan also wants to be the “goat of Mendes” (aegis).

Zeus: His most famous story was told by Hesiod in his Theogony, of how Zeus usurped the kingdom of the immortals from his father and Gaia wrapped a stone in swaddling clothes in place of the infant Zeus. Cronus thinking it was the newborn baby swallowed the stone.

Yahuwshuwa: Is the King who will rule the earthly kingdom of David (his Father’s Kingdom). Gaia means “mother” and we see a similarity with Miriyam (the mother of Yahuwshuwa) as she wrapped him in swaddling clothes (Luke 2:7-12).

Yahuwshuwa Messiah is also called “the rock” of our salvation and “the chief cornerstone” just like Zeus. Cronus means “time” in Greek and Messiah is called “The one who is, and was, and is to come.” He is the eternal one who has “Neither beginning of days nor end of days”(Hebrews 7). 

He is also called “The Ancient of Days” (meaning timeless). The stone or rock of our salvation has been made a finite being (swallowed by time) by becoming a new born baby.

Zeus: Before the abolition of monarchies, Zeus was protector of the king and his family. Once the age of Greek kings faded into democracy he became chief judge and peacemaker, but most impor-tantly civic god. He brought peace in place of violence and Hesiod (circa 700 BCE) describes Zeus as “The lord of justice.” 

Zeus was also known Kosmetas” (orderer), “Soter” (savior), “Polieos”
(overseer of the polis, city) and “Eleutherios” (guarantor of political freedoms). 

His duties in this role were to maintain the laws, protect suppliants, to summon festivals and to give prophecies (his oldest and most famous oracle was at Dodona, in Epirus, northwestern Greece). As the supreme deity Zeus oversaw the conduct of civilized life. But the “father of gods and men” as Homer calls him, has many mythological tales.

Yahuwshuwa: is called “Judge” (Isaiah 2:4, Micah 4:3) and prince of peace (Isaiah 9:6). Messiah is also called “Savior” just like Zeus. Messiah is also the one who came to maintain the Law of Moses (Matthew 5:17-19) just like Zeus. The “government” shall also be upon his shoulders (Isaiah 9:6) just as Zeus is portrayed as being the overseer (police) maintaining law and order.

We have clearly seen the many similarities between the character of Zeus and the Jewish Messiah that many call “Jesus” and by those many similarities we can already see that Satan has been trying to trade identities with the Messiah of Yisra’el since the beginning of time!

Once the Roman Papacy enacts Martial Law that forces people to use the name of “Jesus” instead of his true Hebrew name Yahuwshuwa, those of us who use his true name will be decapitated (Revelation 20:4). When this happens, everyone will know the difference between the true name of our Messiah versus the fabricated name given to him by the Greeks and the Romans. 

At this point, every person on the planet will have to choose which Messiah they will serve, and the name Jesus will no longer be a valid name to call upon for salvation. People who choose to use the name Jesus by this time will be worshiping the Beast (the Papacy) if they choose the name Jesus over the name Yahuwshuwa. Up until this happens, I believe that people can still be saved using the name Jesus, because that is who people are associating with the Messiah of the Bible.

However, once the name Jesus becomes associated with the Roman Antichrist as a means to joining the One World Religion of the Antichrist, then it will be the name of blasphemy at that point.

Right now, YaHuWaH is being patient while his elect are coming out of the churches to embrace the truth. But the day is going to come when the bar is going to be raised, and people are going to be martyred for using the true name of Yahuwshuwa. Those who receive the “Mark of the Beast” are those who will accept the Roman Papacy’s use of the name Jesus for baptism and salvation.

Does this mean that people calling on the name Jesus are not saved?

I do not believe that all people calling on the name of Jesus are calling on Zeus from their hearts. Indeed, the Ruwach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) is able to interpret before the throne of YaHuWaH Elohiym what people mean when they are calling upon the name Jesus, even though it is not his real name:

1st Shemuw’el (Samuel) 16:7 “……for man looks on the outward appearance, but YHWH looks on the heart.

The Birth Certificate Analogy

Did you know that the word “baby” actually comes from the word Babylon? The etymology of the word “baby” comes from the idea that babies speak in “babel” which is nothing but a confusing bunch of phrases that do not have meaning. The word “babel” means “confusion” in Hebrew, and we read in Genesis 11, that our Creator purposely “confounded” the languages at the Tower of Babel. 

He did this in order to prevent Nimrods satanic empire from becoming even more powerful. And so with that understanding, let’s think about this logically. When you were a newborn baby, your earthly father gave you his last name on a birth certificate. But you were not able to speak or even say your last name yet! And so our Heavenly Father “seals” his elect on the forehead with his name even while they are yet “babies” in the faith (still in Babylon). Once they come out of Babylon, and they begin to mature in their faith, he begins to teach them his true name!

There are people within the sacred name movement who will try to make you doubt your salvation, just because you were a newborn baby in the faith at one time who could only speak “baby language.” But that does not mean that your Heavenly Father did not choose you from the foundation of the world!

The Story of Alissa

Back in the year 2000, I used to run a day care business in my home and I babysat a little 18-month old girl named Alissa. At the time, my son Jeremiah was a Senior in High School and when he would walk in the door after school, little Alissa could not say my son Jeremy’s name properly and so she would call him “dummy.” 

Jeremy at the time thought it was so cute and we both laughed. Jeremy said to me “Mom, she is the only one who is allowed to call me a dummy.” We did not try to correct her, but as time went on, she learned how to say his name correctly as she learned by our example. Today Alissa is 13 years old and if she were to call my son Jeremy a “dummy” her parents would scold her, and Jeremy would find this to be disrespectful. But when she did not know how to say his name, it became for Jeremy “a term of endearment” as he realized that she was just a baby doing the best she knew how. 

Our Heavenly Father is the same way. He sees his babies trying to call upon his name in “baby language” (Babel or confusion) and to him it is “endearing” because he knows what they are trying to say.

However, once they grow up in the faith and they do know how to say his name, then it becomes an entirely different matter. If you want to learn more about how to say the name of the Heavenly Father and the Messiah’s name, see my other articles entitled: “The Covenant Name of Salvation Revealed.”

All those whose names were not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life from the foundation of the world will end up taking the mark of the beast:

Chazown (Revelation) 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Chazown (Revelation) 17:8 The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Chosen From the Foundation of the World

There are many people who are still using the incorrect name of Jesus but they were already chosen as the Father’s elect from the foundation of the world. These people will grow up in the faith and they will learn to call upon him by his real name. Some of these “sacred name” enthusiasts who preach that nobody is saved until they begin to pronounce the name of the Father and the Son correctly are not seeing things from an eternal perspective. They are carnally minded as they suppose that our salvation depends only on our actions. What they fail to see is that the Heavenly Father has already chosen his elect in eternity past:

1st Keefa (Peter) 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of Elohiym the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Yahuwshuwa Mashiyach: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

Mattithyahuw (Matthew)25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Ephsiym (Ephesians) 1:4 According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

Now that you know our Messiah’s real name is not Jesus, you can now read Acts 4:12 with the understanding that there is only ONE NAME under heaven whereby we must be saved. You will notice that it does not say “There are many names under heaven whereby we must be saved.”

Maaseh Shlichiym (Acts) 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Even though the Father has saved many of you with the name Jesus (because he has already chosen you from the foundation of the world), you can no longer believe that the name Jesus is the name of salvation. There is only ONE NAME under heaven whereby we must be saved and it is Yahuwshuwa ha’Mashiyach!
