Messiah Ben Joseph: The Suffering Servant & His Hidden Name

By Maria Merola

We are living in a time when more revelation has been bestowed upon us than at any time in history. The prophet Daniel described these days we are living in:

Daniel 12:4  But you, O Daniy’el, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and the knowledge shall be increased

And yet, despite the amount of knowledge that is available, believers in these last days, are still not allowing that revelation to build us into the image, and character of our savior, Yahuwshuwa.

If we are ever going to usher in the second coming of Messiah, we must become like Yahuwseph (Joseph), who is prophetically known as “The Suffering Servant,” for he was a prophetic “type and shadow” of our Messiah. 

The fuller version of the name “Yahuwseph” is found in only one place in the entire Bible, in Psalm 81:5. The “lying pen of the scribes” (Jeremiah 8:8), shortened many theophoric names in Scripture, by removing the Father’s name (Yahuw). Therefore, the name “Joseph” has been shortened to “Yoseph” throughout the Scriptures. Thankfully, the scribes accidentally allowed the full version of his name to appear in Psalm 81:5. To learn more, see my blog entitled: Father’s Name Revealed in the Son’s name!

While Yahuwseph (Joseph) was in Egypt, Pharaoh changed his name to “Zaphnathpaaneah,” which has a “Double Meaning!” 

This name only appears once in the entire Scriptures (Genesis 41:45), but it is a name that is loaded with prophetic meaning. Even the letters to this name spell out the history of Joseph’s life, as well as our Messiah’s legacy!

Interestingly, in Egyptian, this name means “Savior of the Age,” or  “Savior of the World,” because Yahuwseph (Joseph) saved the civilized world at that time from a world-wide famine! 

But Zaphnathpaaneah in Hebrew means “A Revealer of a Secret!” 

What is so interesting about this, is that everything about Joseph’s life, was doubled!

*He had two dreams when he was a teenager, and his brothers hated him for it. 

*He interpreted two dreams when he was in prison, for the Cupbearer and the Baker. 

*He later interpreted two dreams for Pharaoh. 

*He had two sons by his Egyptian wife Asenath. 

*When his father Ya’aqob (Jacob) was dying, he was given A DOUBLE PORTION INHERITANCE! (Genesis 48:22). 

Yahuwceph (Joseph) was a “TYPE & SHADOW” of Messiah, because he saved the Egyptians from a famine under a “HIDDEN NAME & IDENTITY!” 

YaHuWaH also showed me the same thing happened with Queen Esther, who took on a Babylonian name, so that she could go “INCOGNITO” in the Persian Empire! 

Her real name was Hadassah, but she was used mightily to save the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) from complete annihilation under a “HIDDEN NAME & IDENTITY!” 

The name “Esther” is a variation of the pagan goddess Easter (Ishtar), and yet, YaHuWaH still used her under that heathen name! 

When Joseph’s Hebrew brothers came to buy grain, they did not recognize him, because he looked like an Egyptian, and he had an Egyptian name. 

It wasn’t until Joseph said to his brothers “I am Yahuwceph” (Genesis 45:3), that the eyes of his brothers were opened, and they recognized him!

This is when their eyes were opened, and they wept bitterly over him! This was a foreshadowing of when our Messiah will land his feet on the Mount of Olives, as prophesied in Zakaryahuw (Zechariah) 12:10. 

We are told that the remnant from the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) will “LOOK UPON HIM WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED, AND SHALL WEEP BITTERLY FOR HIM!” 

These “Lost Sheep” of Yisra’el, still do not recognize Yahuwshuwa as the Messiah! 

I often hear Christians making excuses for continuing to use the name “Jesus,” (even after they have been shown the truth about our Messiah’s real name). They say things like “But, I’ve seen many miracles when I have prayed in the name of Jesus.” 

Here is my response to those who want to cling to the name “Jesus,” even after learning his true name: 

“Unless we call our Messiah by his true name, the Lost Sheep, (the wayward brothers of our Messiah) will not recognize, him, and there cannot be restoration to the Whole House of Yisra’el!”

YaHuWaH overlooks our ignorance when we don’t know any better: 

Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance Elohiym winked at; but now commands all men everywhere to repent. 

But now that we do know his true name, we are held to a higher level of accountability! 

Luqas (Luke) 12:48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more. 

Ya’aqob (James) 4:17 Therefore to him that knows to do good, and does it not, to him it is sin.

The reason why our Creator wants to be called by his true and proper name, is because there are generic titles that have been used to describe false deities, and he is too holy to be approached that way. 

Shemoth (Exodus) 23:13 And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of your mouth.

The name “Jesus,” has been proven within Academic Scholarship to have derived from the Greek god of healing named Ieusues
(a variant spelling of Iesous/Jesus). Once we learn the truth regarding the name “Jesus,” there is no excuse to continue in the error. 

To learn more, see my blog entitled: Does the Name “Jesus” Mean Hail Zeus? 

As I already explained, the name “Zaphnathpaaneah,” means “A Revealer of a Secret!” 

This means that the Paleo Pictograph Letters contain “HIDDEN MESSAGES” that can be decoded! 

The message that is revealed in Zaphnathpaaneah: 

*Tzady - Yahuwseph (Joseph) was like Ezekiel, who laid on his side (tzady); The right side is for Yahuwdah (Judah) and the left side is for Ephrayim (Ezekiel 4:6). Thus, he bore the guilt for both houses (by his many sufferings), and reunited them in the end. 

*Pey - Yahuwceph (Joseph) used his mouth (pay) to interpret two dreams about his brothers, the Sons of Yisra’el, and they hated him for it. 

*Nun - Yahuwceph (Joseph) was given two sons, (nun, seeds, heirs), by his Egyptian wife Asenath.

*Taw - Yahuwseph (Joseph) acted as the “nail” (the connector) who reunited the two families of Leah & Rachel, the Stick (Taw) of Yahuwseph & the Stick (Taw) of Yahuwdah (Judah). 

*Pey - Yahuwseph (Joseph) used his mouth (pay) to interpret two dreams in prison, and two dreams for Pharaoh. 

*Ayin - Yahuwseph (Joseph) was given spiritual eyes (ayin) to see things in the Ruwach/Spirit through prophetic dreams and visions. 

*Nun - Yahuwseph (Joseph) was counted as the heir/seed (nun) of his father, Ya’aqob, who gave him a “DOUBLE PORTION INHERITANCE” (ruler over both Houses of Yisrael). 

*Chet – Ya’aqob’s tent (family) was divided (chet), because he favored Yahuwseph (Joseph); But Yahuwseph (Joseph) reunited them all in the end. 

Today, within the household of faith, we are divided over the “NAME,” of our Messiah! 

Many call him “Jesus.” 

Some call him “Yeshua.” 

Some call him “Yahusha,” or “Yahushua” or “Yahuwshuwa.” 

But when was the divided house reunited? 

It is when Yahuwseph (who is a type of Messiah) revealed “The Father’s name” (YaHuW) that is embedded within the Son’s name! 

Therefore, what is important is the Father’s name within the son’s name! 

Yahuwchanon (John) 5:43 I am come in my Father’s name, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive. 

When Joseph said to his brothers in Bereshiyth (Genesis) 45:3 “I am YaHuWSePh” that’s when everything changed! 

It is the revelation of the Father’s name (YaHuW or YaHU) within the Son’s name that restored the DIVIDED HOUSE!

Did you know that the prophet “Tzphanyahuw” (Zephaniah) bears the same root word (Tzaphan) as the name “Zaphnathpaaneah?

The prophet “Tzphanyahuw” gave us a very important end-times prophecy: 

Tzphanyahuw (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. 

Tzphanyahuw (Zephaniah) 3:9 For then will I turn to the people a PURE LANGUAGE [CLEAN LIPS] that they may all call upon the name of YHWH, to serve him with one consent

The word for “pure” in the above passage is defined in the Hebrew Lexicon:

#H1305 barar baw-rar' a primitive root; to clarify (i.e. brighten), examine, select:--make bright, choice, chosen, cleanse (be clean), clearly, polished, (shew self) pure(-ify), purge (out). 

The word for “language” in the above passage is defined in the Hebrew Lexicon:

#H8193 saphah saw-faw' or (in dual and plural) sepheth {sef-eth'}; probably from 5595 or 8192 through the idea of termination (Compare 5490); the lip (as a natural boundary); by implication, language; by analogy, a margin (of a vessel, water, cloth, etc.):--band, bank, binding, border, brim, brink, edge, language, lip, prating, seashore, side, speech, talk, (vain) words

This explains why the prophet Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) made the following declaration:

Yeshayahuw (Isaiah) 6:5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips [tame saphah], and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips [tame saphah]: for mine eyes have seen the King, YHWH of hosts.  

In other words, the prophet Isaiah was telling YaHuWaH that he dwelled among the heathens, and therefore, he spoke unclean languages of the nations!

The Hebrew word for “unclean” is defined in the Concordance:

#H2931 tame' taw-may' from 2930; foul in a relig. sense:--defiled, + infamous, polluted(-tion), unclean. 

The name “Tzphanyahuw” means “YaHuWaH has SECRETED!” 

In other words, YaHuWaH has kept his true name a “secret” these past 2,000 years!

However, in these last days, (just like Joseph), YaHuWaH is revealing his secret name to his “lost sheep!” Just like Isaiah, his unclean lips were cleansed with “Holy Fire!”

Just like those talmudiym (disciples) on the Day of Shabuwoth (Pentecost) in Acts 2:1-8, we will continue to see the cleansing and purifying of our unclean languages from the nations.

The final purging will take place during the last 1,260 days of tribulation, when the corporate Two Witnesses will have fire proceeding from their mouths to devour their adversaries (Revelation 11:5).
