If God's name is Yahweh and not Jesus Christ why didn't his Apostles’ preach Yahweh? We see in the bible the Apostle’s preached Jesus Christ. When Peter preached on the day of Pentecost in Acts chi-pt. 2 vs. 38 why didn’t he instruct them to be baptized in the name of Yahweh? Peter preached salvation through Jesus Christ not Yahweh read Acts chi-pt. 4 vs. 10-12. Did Peter preach a lie? Did the Apostle Paul preach a lie in Philippians chi-pt. 2 vs. 9-11? It cannot be found in the scriptures where the Apostles’ preached Yahweh to the people. Paul said he declared all the counsel of God read Acts chi-pt. 20 vs. 20 and 27. According to the Yahweh doctrine Paul preached a lie. The true people of God are going to hold to what is written in the scriptures read Romans chi-pt. 15 vs. 4. If Paul didn’t preach Yahweh he said it is another Gospel and it is accursed read Galatians chi-pt. 1 vs. 6-9. Don’t let the devil deceive and turn you away from Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ died for our sins not Yahweh.
Name of the Creator As The Father is יהוה "YHWH"
and His Son’s Name is יהוה "YHWH" Note: The Father & Son Name Are The Same! (John 5:43) They Are ONE!
Yahweh - the God of the Israelites, his name being revealed to Moses as four Hebrew consonants (YHWH) called the tetragrammaton. After the Exile (6th century BC), and especially from the 3rd century BC on, Jews ceased to use the name Yahweh for two reasons. As Judaism became a universal religion through its proselytizing in the Greco-Roman world, the more common noun Elohim, meaning “god,” tended to replace Yahweh to demonstrate the universal sovereignty of Israel's God Yahweh over all others. At the same time, the divine name Yahweh was increasingly regarded as too sacred to be uttered; it was thus replaced vocally in the synagogue ritual by the (Jews) Hebrew word Adonai (“My Lord”), which was translated as Kyrios (“Lord”) in the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Old Testament.
The Masoretes, who from about the 6th to the 10th century worked to reproduce the original text of the Hebrew Bible, replaced the vowels of the name (YHWH) Yahweh with the vowel signs of the Hebrew words Adonai or Elohim. Thus, the artificial name Jehovah (YeHoWaH) came into being. Although Christian scholars after the Renaissance and Reformation periods used the term Jehovah for YHWH, in the 19th and 20th centuries biblicalscholars again began to use the form Yahweh. Early Christian writers, such as Clement of Alexandria in the 2nd century, had used a form like Yahweh, and this pronunciation of the (Tetragrammaton) was never really lost. Other Greek transcriptions also indicated that YHWH should be pronounced Yahweh.
The meaning of the personal name of the Israelite God has been variously interpreted. Many scholars believe that the most proper meaning may be “He Brings Into Existence Whatever Exists” (Yahweh-Asher-Yahweh). In I Samuel, God is known by the name Yahweh Teva-?ot, or “He Brings the Hosts Into Existence,” the hosts possibly referring to the heavenly court or to Israel. The personal name of God probably was known long before the time of Moses. The name of Moses' mother was Jochebed (Yokheved), a word based on the name Yahweh. Thus, the tribe of Levi, to which Moses belonged, probably knew the name Yahweh, which originally may have been (in its short form Yo, Yah, or Yahu) a religious invocation of no precise meaning evoked by the mysterious and awesome splendour of the manifestation of the holy.

Shalom, My Good Dear Brother! I appreciate you giving me your time to touch on Biblical thoughts and then also to share with you some of my study and research. Moreover, I want to mentioned to you the type of books that would be a must have in considering to formulate your Biblical Library. Moreover, these are some of the books that would cause one to move from a comfort zone, to an intense Biblical High! Praise Yahweh! Now these are some of the books that are recommended:
1. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible
2. King James Hebrew/Greek Key Word Study Bible
3. Inter perter Bible Dictionary(set of 5)
4. Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary of the Bible
5. Webster's Collegiate or Random House Dictionary
6. Synonym Finder by J.I. Rodale
7. Guinness Book of World Records, copyright 1985
8. Jerusalem Bible
As a Note: The Guinness Book of World Records talks about the letters "J' and "V" as being the newest letters added to English Alphabet, which is post Shakespearean 1630. So the letters "J" and "V" are only 379 years old. Also In The Hebrew /Greek There Is No Letter "J" Take These Bible Tools And Look And See; All "J"s Are a "Y" And All "V" Are a "W" In The Hebrew: Praise Yahweh! We Can Do All Things In Yahweh! It Is A Wonderful Time For Us To Be Here This Day! Note: Most Preachers, Evangelist, churches, artists, ministries,Prophets, Prophetess, Men And Woman Who Say They Have Been Call By The Most High God Yahweh, Don't Even Call Him By His Real Holy Name; The Holy Name Of The Most High Is YHWH Which Is YUD HAY WAW HAY That Saids "YAHWEH". Look It Up: For Yourself "YHWH" And Then Tell The Truth, If You Are From The God Of The Hebrews And Bible, Ex 5:3, Ex 9:1, Ex 9:13, When You Know The Truth Tell It. Great Are U!
