Good Morning.

Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’” (Exodus 3:15)

The Hebrew word, l’olam, translated as “forever” could also be pronounced l’alem which  would mean “to conceal.” From this, Judaism concludes that the name YHVH should not be pronounced at all. To this day there is controversy as to whether we should pronounce this Name or how it is properly pronounced. It is important to keep in mind that the Hebrew word shem, translated as “name,” really denotes “authority” and “reputation.” 

So when God declared “This is my Name forever” was He emphasizing the correct pronunciation or was He emphasizing that His authority is how He is to be remembered forever” When He told Moses to tell the children of Israel that the “I Am that I Am” had sent him, I believe it was to send a message that they should acknowledge His authority. Again, that is why He said, “This is My memorial unto all generations.” 

Obviously there is a correct way to pronounce The Name and that is important, but it is much more important to recognize our Father’s authority. When we do, we live in a way that is pleasing to Him and upholds His reputation to world. His authority goes beyond the use of words and names; His authority in the earth is recognized when we live holy and set apart lives as a witness to the nations. From generation to generation, those who serve Him, promote and preserve His reputation in this world. Let us continue to propagate His great name by being the people that He has challenged us to be.

Blessings and Shalom,
