21st of 2nd month. May 25, 2019
Exodus 2:10 Moses. Mo/Mu/Mou = Egyptian for water.
Uses = Save/saved. (I had these backwards in the sermon. I'm sorry.)
Moses / Muses / Mouses = saved by water.
Josephus said this. "Hereupon it was that Thermuthis (Pharoah's daughter) imposed this name Mouses upon him, from what had happened when he was put into the river; for the Egyptians call water by the name of Mo, and such as are saved out of it, by the name of Uses: so by putting these two words together, they imposed this name upon him. And he was, by the confession of all, according to God's prediction, as well for his greatness of mind as for his contempt of difficulties, the best of all the Hebrews, for Abraham was his ancestor of the seventh generation" (Josephus, Antiquities, Book II, Chapter 9, Paragraph 6).
Genesis 17 Abraham = Father of many nations
Sarah = strive / persist / continue / steadfast / maintain
Israel = Je-sara = God maintains.
Numbers 13:17 Joshua = JEhoshea = JE + Hoshea
Exodus 3 I-JE Asher I-JE = sentence. JE/JESUS = Name. Both expressions used in this verse.
Matthew 1:20-23 Emmanuel = title = GOD with us.
Jesus = Name = "JE with us" and "JE saves". (He saves with water, blood and Holy Ghost.)
Acts 2:37-38 Must be baptized in the name and authority of Jesus.
Acts 13:9 Saul = Paul.
Saul = Hebrew.
Paul = Roman / Gentile to reflect his calling to witness to Gentiles.
There was The Spirit of GOD behind those names and name changes.
Daniel 1:1-7 Daniel = God is my Judge. Beltheshazzar = Bel protects his life. (Spirit of devils changed these names.)
Hanajeh / Ananias -> Shadrach
Mishiael / Misael -> Misach
Azarjeh / Azarias -> Abdenago = servant of Nebo (false god)
If my name was "pagan" or a pagan word, I would change it! There are meanings / power / origins of names. They are not in vain nor powerless.
If mispronounced as "pagan" or pagan, I would correct people!
pagan means: witch, demonic, false worship, breaking of first commandment.
Some examples of pagan names that should be changed if you have any of these names:
Mohammed & variants
Assad, Islam, Christmas, Easter. Minerva, Athena, Venus, Loki, Shiva...
Y names, fallen angel names, etc.
Revelation 2:17 We will be given a new name. I believe some of us can learn that name in this life, even as Abraham & Paul did.
