The Lying Pen of the Scribes

By Maria Merola

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 8:8 How do you say, We are wise, and the Towrah (law) of YHWH is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain. 

It is not a light thing with YaHuWaH that there are scribes who tell lies through the written word (the pen). Jeremiah prophesied that those who write lies will suffer the following judgments: 

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 8:

9 The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of YHWH; and what wisdom is in them? 

10 Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for everyone from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one deals falsely. 

11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace. 

12 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, says YHWH. 

13 I will surely consume them, says YHWH: there shall be no grapes on the vine, nor figs on the fig tree, and the leaf shall fade; and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them. 

Lying Prophets 

Not much has changed today from the days when the prophet Jeremiah warned the religious leaders of the House of Yahuwdah (Judah). They were leading the sheep in a false way by causing them to forget the true name of YaHuWaH in exchange for a generic title such as “Lord, Adonai, Baal, God, etc.” 

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 23:26 How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart.

Yirmeyahuw (Jeremiah) 23:27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal

After the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) came out of Babylonian Captivity, they enforced a “ban” on the Heavenly Father’s name. The Jewish Talmud literally states that it is punishable by death for any gentile to speak the sacred name of YaHuWaH:

“Gentiles May Not Be Taught the Torah. Inasmuch as the Jews had their own distinct jurisdiction, it would have been unwise to reveal their laws to the Gentiles, for such knowledge might have operated against the Jews in their opponents’ courts. Hence, the Talmud prohibited the teaching to a Gentile of the Torah, the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob (Deuteronomy 33:4).” 

R. Johanan says of one such teaching: 

“Such a person deserves death” (an idiom used to express indignation). “It is like placing an obstacle before the blind” (Sanhedrin. 59a; ‘ag. 13a). “A Gentile observing the Sabbath deserves death” (Sanhedrin 58b)...….All Gentiles found keeping the 7th day Sabbath shall be found guilty of breaking the Noahide Law and must be punished to the fullest… Decapitation….No gentile shall be permitted to speak (Ha’shem) the name of YHWH, all who have blasphemy and are found guilty of breaking the Noahide Law and shall be punished to the fullest... Decapitation.” 

However, these Talmudic restrictions on calling upon the name, is a clear violation of the Scriptures. In Joel 2:32, we are commanded to “Call upon the name of YaHuWaH” for salvation. 

This commandment is also repeated in Romans 10:13.These Talmudic Laws are not actually from the prophet Noah in the Bible. This is purely a man-made tradition, meant to keep the people suppressed from the truth. Noah never spoke such laws in the Scriptures. 

These same religious hypocrites were rebuked sharply by our Messiah, because they shut up heaven against men (by hiding the name of salvation), and replacing it with generic and vain, empty titles. And today, there are a quite a few of these religious zealots who make fun of the way that I and other “Sacred Namers” pronounce and spell our Creators name. 

They also falsely accuse me of making up my own Hebrew words, and vocabulary. Pictured below is an ancient Hebrew & Semitic Alphabet chart which shows how the Abriyth (Hebrew) Language and Alphabet has changed over the years. 

There is a rhyme and a reason to the way that I spell words and names in the Bible. I always look up the original word in the Hebrew Manuscript of the TaNaKh (first), and I match each Hebrew Letter to a corresponding English Letter. 


Aleph = A
Beyt = B
Quph = Q
Kaph = K
Waw (Vav) = W 

Here is an example: 

Some people spell Ruwach ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit) with an English letter “k,” (Ruwach ha’Kodesh). 

However, I spell the word “qodesh” with an English letter “q,” because the Hebrew word “qodesh” is spelled with a “quph,” and not with a “kaph.” 

If a Hebrew word is spelled with a “kaph,” then I use the English letter “k.” I also use the English “w” to correspond to the Hebrew Letter “waw” (vav in Modern Hebrew). 

For those who doubt that the 6th Hebrew letter was at one time a “waw” rather than a “vav,” see the following article from the Jewish Encyclopedia:

An article on Wikipedia explains that the letter “waw is an Ancient Semitic letter:

The letter “waw” is a very ancient letter (contrary to popular belief). It is the 6th letter of the Phoenician, Arabic, Syriac, Hebrew & Aramaic Alphabet. 

Therefore, those who make the false claim that there is no “W” in Hebrew, are proven wrong! 

In recent years, some within the Hebraic Roots Community who have disdain for the Yahuwdiym (Jews), claim that there never was a letter “waw.” These people have invented an artificial letter called “uau,” in an attempt to reinvent the Ancient Alphabet.

So if you think I am weird for spelling the word “Torah” as “Towrah” there is a reason why! As you can see, the Hebrew Lexicon and Strongs Concordance spells it this way to help aid in proper pronunciation! 

ToWRaH is spelled with 4 Hebrew Letters as follows:

Taw, Waw, Resh, Hey תּוֹרָה 

#H8451. towrah to-raw’ or torah {to-raw’}; from 3384; a precept or statute, especially the Decalogue or Pentateuch:--law. 

Many people pronounce the word like the Japanese War film about the attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II, entitled Tora, Tora, Tora!

To avoid this pronunciation, I deliberately spell the word “Towrah” with the Hebrew letter “waw, because it is meant to make the long “O” sound as in “grow.

Pictured here, is a graphic I made showing the Paleo Pictograph letters for the word “Towrah.”   

On September 4th 2013, I was one of the privileged ones to make it to #6 on Derek Leman’s “Messianic Wall of Weird.” Here is the link to read some of the lies and slander that he wrote about me:

This is a response to Derek Leman, a man who loves to commit “La’shon
Hara” (the evil tongue) against other followers of Messiah. He wrote a blog about me on his “Messianic Wall of Weird,” and I get to be #6 on his list. The first thing that I noticed (as I began reading what he wrote about me), is that he loves to tell lies, and bears false witness against his neighbor. 

This, of course is a violation of the 9th Commandment: 

Shemoth (Exodus) 20:16 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” 

I am going to begin by dismantling the lies that Derek Leman has written about me, and let’s just hope and pray that he repents. 

Derek Leman’s Lie #1: You can start moon-watching to be “righter” than us Jewish people about the calendar and the holidays! 

Maria’s answer: How can one be “righter” (there is no such word), than the Jewish people if the idea of sighting the new moon was first practiced by the Jewish people in the first place? It is a well-known historic fact that the Yahuwdiym (Jewish) people at one time observed the first sliver or crescent of the new moon each month at Rosh Chodesh. 

Below is a brief explanation: 

What Constitutes a New Moon? In ancient Yisra’el, before the Roman Siege in 70 A.D., the new month was determined by “new moon watchers” who stood on the walls of Jerusalem and they waited for the first crescent moon to appear in the sky. 

When they spotted the new moon, every 29-30 days, they would report their findings to the Jewish Sanhedrin and then the Sanhedrin would send out couriers to notify the surrounding tribes of Yisra’el that the new month had arrived called “Rosh Chodesh” or “head of the month.” 

But in the 4th Century however, under the Jewish Council called “Hillel II” the Sanhedrin determined that it was too difficult to keep the times and the seasons according to the “sighted moon” in Yisra’el. Therefore, they began using an alternate method of determining a new month. based on a Greek Mathematician’s calculations. 

Because, they were in diaspora (and they could not site the moon from Jerusalem), a man-made calculation was used to determine the months in the year. Hence, the calendar used in Judaism is based on the “conjunction moon” (the dark moon), rather than the “sighted moon” which our Creator commands us to keep. 

In Deuteronomy 16:1, the command he gave is to “Observe the month Abib.” 

The Hebrew word for observe is shamar, which means “to watch narrowly for, to be a watchman.” 

The Hebrew word for month is chodesh, which literally means new moon. 

In other words, we are commanded to watch for the new moon. 

Since 1948, when Yisra’el became a State, there has been no excuse to continue using a pre-fixed calendar, yet the Jewish Sanhedrin has not made a ruling on this matter. Consequently, the rest of the known Jewish world goes along with this calendar. 

Derek Leman’s Lie #2: 

You can enjoy new spelling rules for all the names of people in the Hebrew Bible (cause the Jewish people have been [allegedly] misinformed about Hebrew all this time). Wait, haven’t we been the only ones passing down the language of Hebrew for two thousand five hundred years? Where could MariYah be getting this information? 

Maria’s answer: to begin with, these are not “new spellings” of names of people in the Bible what-so-ever. I have not invented any “new spellings.” The way that I spell names of people in the Bible can be absolutely substantiated by the Bible itself! 

So to answer your question “Where could Maria be getting this information?” 

The answer is: The Tanakh! 

Let me first begin by giving you a brief history lesson, so that you can understand why the name of YHWH (The Tetragrammaton) has been removed from Theophoric names of people in the Bible. The Mishnah Berurah explains: 

It is forbidden to read the glorious and terrible name as it is written, as the sages said “He that pronounces the name as it is written has no portion in the world to come.” 

Therefore it must be read as if it were written Adonai (Mishnah Berurah 5:2). This is hardly a modern innovation. It appears already in the early 3rd century CE in the Mishnah tractate of Sanhedrin:

“The following have no portion in the world to come: Abba Saul says: one who pronounces the divine name as it is written” (Mishnah Sanhedrin 10:1).”   

Anyone who knows the Scriptures, can see that these Talmudic Laws are diametrically opposed to the commandments of our Creator: 

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of YHWH [the Lord] shall be saved. 

YahuwEL (Joel) 2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of YHWH [the Lord] shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as YHWH [the Lord] hath said, and in the remnant whom YHWH [the Lord] shall call. 

*Note: in the Aramaic Peshitta, and also in the Hellenic P46 Manuscript, it is obvious that the word “Lord” was not in the New Testament originally. 

The Aramaic Peshitta, uses the term “Mar Yah” which means “Master Yah.” 

In the Hellenic P46 Manuscript, it uses “Kappa Sigma” (KC) to indicate to the reader, that they must go to a Jewish Synagogue to learn how to pronounce the four letters to the divine name of YaHuWaH. 

Later-on, in the 1500’s (Erasmus, a Catholic Latin Scribe) placed the Greek word “kurios” into all the New Testament references for “KC.” This is how we know that the Briyth Chadashah (New Testament) originally had the Tetragrammaton (YHWH) in it rather than the empty title of “Lord!” 

To go along with this Talmudic Ban on the divine name, a new grammatical rule was created around the 9th Century in order to “hide” the name of YaHuWaH from the Gentiles. 

This grammatical rule is called “The Pretonal Shortening Rule” in which it states that whenever the first three letters to the Father’s name (the Trigrammaton) are seen on the end of people’s names, it shall remain as “YaHuW.” 

But whenever the Trigrammaton (YHW) is seen at the beginning of names, then the vowel points shall change to make the name sound like “YeHoW.” 

Here are some examples of names with the “YaHuW” on the end of names: 

EliYaHuW = Elijah 
YirmeYaHuW = Jeremiah 
YeshaYaHuW = Isaiah 

Now here are some names that have had the “YaHuW” changed to “YeHoW” at the front of names due to the invention of the Pre-Tonal Shortening Rule: 

YaHuWnathan = Jonathan changed to YeHoWnathan, shortened to Yonathan. 

YaHuWseph = Joseph changed to YeHoWseph, shortened to Yoseph/Yosef. 

If you think I am weird because I spell the name “Joseph” as “YaHuWseph” (which includes our Father’s name in it) rather than the traditional way of “Yosef,” it is because the name of Yahuwceph (Joseph) has been deliberately truncated by the “The lying pen of the scribes” (Jeremiah 8:8). 

They deliberately removed our Heavenly Father’s name from the name “Yoseph” (Yosef), thus removing the holy name of our Heavenly Father!

There are actually two different spellings for “Joseph” in the Hebrew Lexicon & Concordance: 

#H3084. Yhowceph yeh-ho-safe’ a fuller form of 3130; Jehoseph (i.e. Joseph), a son of Jacob:--Joseph; Jehovah will add (YaHuWaH will add or increase) 

#H3130. Yowceph yo-safe’ future of 3254; let him add (or perhaps simply active participle adding); Joseph, the name of seven Israelites:--Joseph. Compare 3084. 

As you can see, the name Yahuwceph (#3084) has 5 Hebrew Letters:

יְהוֹסֵף Yod, Hey, Waw, Sin, Pey = YaHuWceph 

This means that Father’s name is included, and it is seen this way in Psalm 81:5. 

Tehilliym (Psalms) 81:5 This he ordained in Yahuwseph (Joseph) for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt: where I heard a language that I understood not. 

There are two different spellings in the Tanakh for the name “Joseph” and one of them has been shortened (removing the Father’s name). The shortened version is “Yowceph” which means “let him add.” 

But the fuller form of his name is “Yehowceph.” However, before the Pretonal Shortening Rule was invented, it would have been “Yahuwceph” which means “YaHuWaH has added.” 

In Psalm 81:5, this fuller form of Joseph is used with the added letter “Hey” (the breath or the spirit) added to his name! 

Why was the breath or spirit removed from Joseph’s name in other places? It was the “lying pen of the scribes” who wanted to deliberately ban the Heavenly Father’s name, to go along with the Talmud, so they removed our Father’s name from Joseph’s name shortening it to Yoseph/Yosef rather than Yahuwceph! 

The name of “Joshua” was originally pronounced as “YaHuWshuwa” but it became “YeHoWshuwa” (Yehoshua) after the invention of the Pretonal Shortening Rule. And then it was truncated to “Yeshua” by the scribes after the Babylonian Captivity. 

The name “Joshua” as seen in Zechariah 6:11 was originally spelled with 6 Hebrew Letters: Yod, Hey, Waw (Vav), Shin, Waw (Vav), Ayin (YHWSWA). 

*Note: We know for certain that the Romans invented the letter “V” and the Germanic influence on the Hebrew Language caused the Semetic letter “Waw” to become the “Vav.” 

This can easily be seen by looking at the 6th Arabic letter to this day which is “Waw.” 

There are 219 times in the Tanakh, where the name of Joshua is spelled with all 6 letters as YaHuWShuWA.

However, after the Babylonian Captivity, “The lying pen of the scribes” (Jeremiah 8:8) removed the Father’s name from the name “Joshua,” and they shortened it to only 4 letters: Yod, Shin, Waw (Vav), Ayin (YSWA). 

Hence, there are 29 times where the name “Joshua” is spelled as “Jeshua,” and these are the instances where the name has only 4 Hebrew letters rather than the original 6 letters. If you don’t believe me, just look up the name of Joshua in the Hebrew Strong’s Concordance:

#H3091. Yhowshuwa` yeh-ho-shoo’-ah or Yhowshua {yeh-ho-shoo'-ah}; from 3068 and 3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (i.e. Joshua), the Jewish leader:--Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua. Compare 1954, 3442. 

As you can see, this is the original name of “Joshua,” and then it was purposely shortened to the following word in the Hebrew Concordance: 

#3442. Yeshuwa` yay-shoo’-ah for 3091; he will save; Jeshua, the name of ten Israelites, also of a place in Palestine:--Jeshua. 

#3443. Yeshuwa` yay-shoo’-ah (Aramaic) corresponding to 3442:--Jeshua. 

Even Rabbi Kaduri, an Orthodox Rabbi from Yisra’el was shown the full Modern Hebrew form of the name of the Messiah as “Yehowshuwa.” 

See the video below: 

Now, you may be asking “What is so bad about the fact that two letters were removed from the name of Joshua?” 

The Hebrew Letter “Hey” means “The breath” or “The Spirit.” 

But did you know that our Heavenly Father added just one extra letter to Abram’s name and to Sarai’s name in Genesis 17:5-15? 

Do you have any idea why? 

Well, you see, when Abram & Sarai were not fully trusting in YaHuWaH for the promised son, they acted in haste, and allowed Yishma’el to be born. But when they had finally reached a place of learning to rest in YaHuWaH’s promises, he gave them the added letter “Hey” in their name which is equivalent to the English letter “H.” 

What does the Hebrew letter “Hey” mean? The Hebrew Letter “Hey” in pictograph Hebrew is a picture of a man praising Yah! 

This letter means “The breath or the spirit” of YaHuWaH! 

This means that Abraham & Sarah received the “The breath or the spirit”, when they began to truly walk by faith! 

Similarly, the name of our Messiah (Joshua) is spelled with 6 Hebrew Letters: 

Yod, Hey, Waw, Shin, Waw, Ayin = YaHuWShuWA (Yahuwshuwa). 

What do these letters mean? 

Yod = arm or hand.
Hey = breath or spirit.
Waw (Vav) = nail or tent peg. 
Shin = tooth.
Waw (Vav) = nail or tent peg.
Ayin = eye.

What story do these letters paint a picture of? 

The “Yod” means that our Messiah is the “arm” of YaHuWaH (Isaiah 53:1, John 12:38). 

The “Hey” means that he has the “breath or spirit” of YaHuWaH which he poured out upon his followers on the Day of Shabuoth (Pentecost). 

The “Waw” (Vav) means that he was “nailed” for Both Houses of Yisra’el (Isaiah 8:14) which is why there are two nails in his name. 

The “Shin” means that he has the “tooth” of a lion who will come to devour the adversaries of his sheep.

The “Ayin” means that he is guiding his sheep with his watchful “eye” (Psalm 32:8). 

But after the Babylonian Captivity, the “lying pen” of the scribes (Jeremiah 8:8) removed our Heavenly Father’s name from the name “Joshua” and shortened it to only four letters making it spelled as Y’shua:

Yod = arm or hand.
Shin = tooth.
Waw (Vav) = nail or tent peg.
Ayin = eye.

Did you notice what is missing? One of the “nails” is missing for one of the Houses of Yisra’el and the “breath” or the spirit is missing from his name! 

Beloved, there is no condemnation here at all, because YaHuWaH is patient and merciful when we do things out of ignorance. But I want to remind you, that if you are still spelling our Messiah’s name as “Y’shua” or “Yeshua,” you are going along with the “lying pen of the scribes” and you are removing from his name the very “breath or spirit” of YaHuWaH! 

If you want to learn more about the name of the Heavenly Father and the Messiah’s name, see these two blogs below: 

“The Covenant Name of Salvation Revealed.” 

“The Hidden Character of ha’Shem.” 

What are the Noahide Laws? 

I want to illustrate why the Beast, aka the Anti-Messiah (Antichrist) will decapitate those who call upon the true name of our Creator: 

Chazown (Revelation) 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Yahuwshuwa, and for the word of Elohiym, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Mashiyach (Messiah) a thousand years. 

The Noahide Laws are based purely upon man-made traditions of Judaism and not upon scripture. Scripture is clear that the Towrah (Mosaic Law) is to be obeyed by both the “stranger” and the Yisraelite who is “natural-born:” 

Shemoth (Exodus) 12:49 One Towrah (law) shall be to him that is home-born, and unto the stranger that sojourns among you. 

Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 24:22 You shall have one manner of Towrah (law), as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am YHWH Elohiym. 

Bemidbar (Numbers) 15:16 One Towrah (law) and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourns with you. 

The Noahide Laws are growing in Popularity

They have even reached the U. S. Congress:

“The U.S. Congress officially recognized the Noahide Laws in legislation that was passed by both houses. Congress and the President of the U. S., George Bush, indicated in Public Law 102-14, 102nd Congress, that the United States of America was founded upon the Seven Universal Laws of Noah, and that these Laws have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization. They also acknowledged that the Seven Laws of Noah are the foundation upon which civilization stands and that recent weakening of these principles threaten the fabric of civilized society, and that justified preoccupation in educating the Citizens of the U.S. of America and future generations is needed. For this purpose, this Public Law designated March 26, 1991 as Education Day.” 

Sadly, this is not just for the state of Yisra’el (Israel) or even the United States, but for the whole world: “This obligation, to teach all the peoples of the earth about the Laws of Noah, is incumbent upon every individual in every era” -- (Mishnah Torah, Law of Kings 8:10). 

“Gentiles May Not Be Taught the Torah. Inasmuch as the Jews had their own distinct jurisdiction, it would have been unwise to reveal their laws to the Gentiles, for such knowledge might have operated against the Jews in their opponents’ courts. Hence, the Talmud prohibited the teaching to a Gentile of the Torah, the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob (Deuteronomy 33:4).” 

R. Johanan says of one such teaching: 

“Such a person deserves death” (an idiom used to express indignation). “It is like placing an obstacle before the blind” (Sanhedrin. 59a; ‘ag. 13a). 

“A Gentile observing the Sabbath deserves death” (Sanhedrin 58b)...….

All Gentiles found keeping the 7th day Sabbath shall be found guilty of breaking the Noahide Law and must be punished to the fullest… Decapitation….

No gentile shall be permitted to speak (Ha’shem) the name of YHWH, all who have blasphemy and are found guilty of breaking the Noahide Law and shall be punished to the fullest... Decapitation.” 

According to Judaism, if a person believes in Messiah Yahuwshuwa, they are considered a Gentile and not recognized as a Yahuwdiy (Jew) as taught by the Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul) in Romans 2:26-29. 

Therefore, to believe in the Messiah and to call upon the Heavenly Father’s name buys you a ticket to the guillotine! 

Derek Leman’s Lie #3: 

Maria and her followers and people who share her kind of thinking are really just making their own Judaism, with their own man-made traditions and practices. What they are really doing is making up a new Judaism and claiming theirs is better than the existing one. 

Maria Merola’s answer: What Derek Leman is saying here is utterly false. 

Those of us who follow the entire counsel of scripture and are walking by the Ruwach ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit) are getting back to the original “Judaism” as practiced in the days of King David before the big split after his son Solomon died. King Solomon had 1,000 wives and many of them worshiped false deities and they influenced Solomon to build heathen temples for them. As a result, the people of the Kingdom of Yisra’el where heavily taxed and this is what ultimately caused the kingdom to be divided into two houses. 

Those of us who follow the entire counsel of scripture and are walking by the Ruwach ha’Qodesh (Holy Spirit) are interpreting the Towrah and the original “Judaism” in the same way that King David did. In the days of King David, both Houses of Yisra’el were unified under his reign. 

But today, we are not united, and the Ten Northern Tribes of Ephrayim remain in exile in the nations and they are not allowed to live in the Modern State of Israel, because the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) will not allow them to come back. In order to live in the land, one must do a DNA test to prove that you are Jewish and one must follow the false doctrines of the Noahide Laws that I already showed from above! 

Judaism today continues to treat born-again Gentiles as “strangers” when scripture makes it plain that when a stranger “sojourns” with any of the Twelve Tribes of Yisra’el, they shall be as “one born into the tribe” (Ezekiel 47:22-23; Exodus 12:48-49). 

Hence, those who are “sojourning with” (walking with) the Lion of the Tribe of Yahuwdah (Judah) are grafted into the Tribe of Judah! 

This means that all born-again believers in Messiah are Yahuwdiym (Jews)! 

The Apostle Sha’uwl (Paul) even explained this very well: 

Romans 2:26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the Towrah (law), shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? 

Romans 2:27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the Towrah (law), judge you, who by the letter and circumcision does transgress the Towrah (law)? 

Romans 2:28 For he is not a Yahuwdiy (Jew), which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 

Romans 2:29 But he is a Yahuwdiy (Jew), which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of Elohiym. 

Do you see, beloved?

We don’t have to join Modern-Day Judaism in order to be called a Yahuwdiy (Jew) by our Heavenly Father! 

In Revelation 2:9 & 3:9, our Messiah warned us about those “Who say they are Jews, but are of the Synagogue of Satan.”

Many within the Hebraic Community have gone two far with these passages, by stereo-typing “All Jews” as if our Messiah was writing them all off. But we know that Scripture reveals that “one-third” of the inhabitants of Jerusalem will be saved at the Mount of Olives, when our Messiah returns to earth (see Zechariah 12, Ezekiel 5-9).

Yet, if their hearts remain uncircumcised, (even if they are ethnically Jewish), they shall not be counted as as such on the day of judgement! 

Everyone who follows the Messiah of Yisra’el (and who obeys his Towrah) has joined his tribe, the Tribe of Yahuwdah (Judah)! 



Derek Leman’s Lie #4: 

Now the kind of Torah observance Maria and people like her advocate is non-Jewish. She does say that God is still working with the Yahudiym (Jews) but that “Rabbinic Judaism” along with “Christianity” are part of the religion of the Anti-Messiah. 

Maria Merola’s answer: 

This is a blatant lie! I have never once stated in any of my writings that Rabbinic Judaism & Christianity are “across the board” are part of the religion of the Anti-Messiah! 

I do point out the lies that are within both camps, and I do believe that there are “aspects” of Anti-Messiah doctrines in both camps. Derek Leman is committing “Lashon Hara” (slander) and bearing false witness against me by making a “blanket statement,” as if to give the reader the impression that I believe all Jews and Christians are following the Anti-Messiah and that is utterly false! 

I do believe that there is a remnant called “The Elect” within both Judaism & Christianity! 

However, I will continue to point out the heresies that exist within both camps. Back in 1997, the Heavenly Father would often speak to my heart when I was in prayer, and he would tell me to read Ezekiel 19. I would read it over and over again, but I did not understand what he was trying to show me until ten years later in 2007 during a 40-day fast. 

During this time, I had a dream wherein Yahuwshuwa himself told me that the “Mother Lioness” in Ezekiel 19 is Jerusalem because in Galatians 4:26, Paul said that “Jerusalem is the mother of us all.” 

He also revealed to me that these “two lion’s whelps” that she raised up are “The Ten Northern Tribes of the House of Ephrayim” and also the “Two Southern Tribes of the House of Judah.” 

Both of these “lion’s whelps” have been “taken captive” in chains into Egypt (a type of the world) and Babylon (religious pagan mixture). 

And they are both to this day “in bondage” to man-made religious traditions. When I asked our Messiah who these two lion’s whelps are today, he replied “Christianity & Judaism.” 

And he said to me “Maria I have called you to be like that mother lioness who nourishes both of these lion’s whelps” and this is why he gave me the new name “Ariel” which means “Lion of EL” as it is another name for Jerusalem (Isaiah 29). 

See my other article detailing these dreams entitled “The Little Mermaid Dream.” 

There are many names that should have our Heavenly Father’s name in them in the Hebrew Tanakh, but they were removed by the LYING PEN OF THE SCRIBES after the Babylonian Captivity. They created a “ban” on our Heavenly Father’s name! 

And this is why our Messiah had this rebuke for them: 

Mattithyahuw (Matthew) 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for you neither go in yourselves, neither suffer you them that are entering to go in. 

If our Heavenly Father’s name is the name that we are commanded to call upon for salvation (Romans 10:13, Joel 2:32) then it stands to reason that by removing the “name of salvation” from our Messiah’s name and many other names in the Bible, these scribes are also removing the road to salvation to prevent people from entering in! 

Also see the blog where I show 100 different names of Yisraelites in the Tanakh (OT) that have our Heavenly Father’s name in them but they were either removed or disguised by having the vowels changed: 

The Name “YaHuWaH” Seen in 100 Sheep in the Ancient Hebrew Scriptures! 

Something to Think About There are those who would say after reading this article, “What difference does it make how we spell words or names?” You may even rationalize that the only thing that matters is what is in your heart. 

However, beloved, while it is true that YaHuWaH is looking at our hearts, he also knows the hearts of those who want to speak “right words” that are divinely inspired by him: 

Ibriym (Hebrews) 11:3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of Elohiym, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. 

Did you see this beloved? YaHuWaH created the entire universe out of words! 

And where do you think he got these words from? He created the 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet at the creation, and then, with those letters, he created the entire world and all things in them! 

Each of these letters carries a different “frequency,” and this is why King David wrote a song in Psalm 119 about all 22 of these letters! 

Each of these letters has a musical tone, and they change the atmosphere when we speak these words. This is why words and letters do matter! 

If words, spellings and pronunciation, do not matter, then consider these passages: 

Yowb (Job) 6:25 How forcible are right words! But what does your arguing reprove? 

Mishley (Proverbs) 8:8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.


  1. Thanks, Maria.

    What you have revealed regarding the Noahide Law’s future assault on the true names is noteworthy. So the definition of blasphemy gets further extended. For a long time, I understood the ramifications of believing in the Messiah as an act of ‘idolatry’ from the Noahide Laws perspective – but what you shared here sheds further light on the matter of how important the utterance of the true names WILL BECOME – here at the end of the age. Clearly, dark powers and principalities are at work behind the scenes to spearhead these policies through the aegis of the Sanhedrin. It is all a terrible and reprehensible lie. I understand the nuance of your approach – I seem to have come over to the consensus approach of Dr Pidgeon on the names. Having said that – I was praying in the Spirit – and was shown in a flash that Yahushua is just as valid as Yahusha.

    I came across a video that celebrates the true names - I think it correctly ties is to Rev 14: 1

    1. Shalom John!

      I am sorry for taking so long to respond to you. I did not notice this comment until today. Thanks for sharing all of that, it really blesses me!

      I agree that the name Yahuwshuwa and Yahusha are both valid, but that is because there are four different spellings for Joshua in the TaNaKh, due to scribal errors. I came to the conclusion that the most accurate of these four spellings is Yahuwshuwa, because of what all six letters mean prophetically.

      See my other blog entitled:

      Yahuwshuwa or Yahusha?

      I wrote this blog in 2011, when I came across those who falsely claim that the “shuwa” in Yahuwshuwa means “Yah cries out, ” or “To take his name in vain.”
