Frequently Asked Questions


F A Q’s


1. Can the exact pronunciation of the Father’s name be known?


Answer: Yes. The exact pronunciation of the Father’s name can be known. The great controversy over this very important question centers around this: what vowels are to be placed with the four consonants YHWH, best known as the Tetragrammaton? Some scholars say the name is YAHWEH, YEHOWAH and even JEHOVAH. While these are some of the BETTER known versions, they are ALL incorrect. To solve this mystery of the Tetragrammaton, we must simply apply the foundational vowels of all the Semitic languages. These vowels according to the Gesenius Book of Hebrew Grammar are A, I and U. When we apply these vowels to the four Hebrew consonants along with the historical evidence we can reach only ONE conclusion…The Father’s name is none other than YAHUWAH.


2. Isn’t JESUS the Mashiyach's name in English?


Answer: No. Our Savior has only ONE name. That name is none other than YAHUWSHUWA. His name is the exact same in ALL languages and does not change. Names are to be Transliterated from one language to the next, never translated. The name JESUS is purely an invention of man. It comes to us from the Latin IESUS which first appeared in the original 1611 King James Version of the Bible. The name JESUS came along less than 500 years ago when the letter J was added to the English language. The form of the name IESUS does not originate from the Hebrew, but comes from the Aramaic word YESHUA. Our Savior’s name is HEBREW not ARAMAIC.


3. WE don’t speak Hebrew so what’s the big deal?


Answer: Most Christians are ignorant to the fact that they speak Hebrew words all the time. An example would be the word "Hallaluyah". The correct rendering according to the Hebrew Language would be (HALAL YAH), which means I WOULD THAT ALL WOULD PRAISE YAH (H3050 יה). So if they are willing to speak certain Hebrew words in the churches, what problem do they have with the true name of the Son which is Hebrew?


4. Will I go to Hell just because I don’t speak the Son’s name in Hebrew?


Answer: Acts 4:10-12 “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Yahuwshuwa HaMashiyach of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom Alahym raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”


In the western Bibles our Savior’s name was changed to JESUS CHRIST. The true name of the Savior is YAHUWSHUWA. His proper title is MASHIYACH not CHRIST. So salvation comes only through the true name of the Savior YAHUWSHUWA. All those who KNOWINGLY reject his name will not receive salvation.


 5. Do you keep the Torah?


Answer: The word TORAH means INSTRUCTION and was first mentioned in Genesis 26:5 “Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.”


The word LAWS is translated from the HEBREW word TORAH. Apostle Shauwl (Paul) taught about the RIGHTEOUSNESS of the law, and that we are the seed of Abraham. It is this RIGHTEOUSNESS which is recorded in the Book of the Law of Moses that ALL of YAHUWAH’S Elect are to follow. People who promote the so-called “back to torah” movement focus on the Laws of Moses only. THIS Law was a covenant made with the ancient Hebrew people. YAHUWSHUWA brought a NEW and BETTER covenant for both the HEBREW and the GENTILE people.


6. Do you keep the feasts?


Answer: The keeping of the ancient feasts are presently NOT being recognized by YAHUWAH. Feasts cannot be kept wherever believers choose to hold them. YAHUWAH states in his word that the feasts MUST be kept in a place where HE chooses to place his Name.


  • Deut 14:22 Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.
  • Deut 14:23 And thou shalt eat before YAHUWAH thy Alahym, in the place which he shall choose to place his Name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear YAHUWAH thy Alahym always.
  • Deut 14:24 And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which YAHUWAH thy Alahym shall choose to set his Name there, when YAHUWAH thy Alahym hath barakah thee:
  • Deut 14:25 Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which YAHUWAH thy Alahym shall choose:


  • Zech 14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, YAHUWAH of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
  • Zech 14:17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, YAHUWAH of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
  • Zech 14:18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith YAHUWAH will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
  • Zech 14:19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.


We as the Elect are now being called to keep YAHUWSHUWA’S SUPPER which is the drinking of wine symbolic of his shed blood and the breaking of bread to symbolize his body which was sacrificed for the sins of the world.

In the world to come under the Government of YAHUWSHUWA our King Eternal, the feasts which HE shall choose will be kept by the entire world.


7. Do you keep the Sabbath?

Answer: The Sabbath was an ORDINANCE written both in the Book of the Law and on the Tables of Stone. It was given to ancient Israel as a sign. No acceptable Sabbath can be kept until the return of our King Eternal YAHUWSHUWA HAMASHIYACH. It is written in the book of Hosea the Prophet that YAHUWAH will do away with the Sabbaths. 

  • Hosea 2:11 “I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her Sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.” 
  • YAHUWSHUWA said “Come all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28)


8. Do you follow the dietary laws?

Answer: Yes. The difference between the CLEAN and the UNCLEAN meats did not begin with the Law of Moses. It began in the beginning before the time of the flood with Noah.


  • Gen 7:1 And YAHUWAH said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
  • Gen 7:2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.


9. Was SHAUWL (PAUL) a true Apostle?

Answer: Yes he was an Apostle of the HIGHEST order. This FOOLISH question has been asked time and time again by people who have corrupted themselves in that “back to torah” movement. One ONLY has to look at the scriptures and see the ignorance of such a question. Acts 26:13-18 establishes his calling unequivocally.


  • Acts 26:13 At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.
  • Acts 26:14 And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
  • Acts 26:15 And I said, Who art thou, Lord (Master)? And he said, I am YAHUWSHUWA whom thou persecutest.
  • Acts 26:16 But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
  • Acts 26:17 Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
  • Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto Alahym, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.


10. What about those who died in ignorance not knowing the true Names of the Father and Son?

 Answer: The scriptures declare that YAHUWSHUWA is our High Priest and he maketh intersession for his Saints. For those who died in ignorance, they are covered by his Favor as stated in the Book of the Law.



  • Num 15:28 And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before YAHUWAH, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him.
  • Num 15:29 Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.
  • Num 15:30 But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth YAHUWAH; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
  • Num 15:31 Because he hath despised the word of YAHUWAH, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him.



11. Is it alright to study from any version of the Bible?

 Answer: It is our position here at ShaluwmYah, that the King James Version is the BEST and MOST reliable, although it has errors and omissions, it is proven to be as close as we have to the original text.


12.What denomination is ShaluwmYah and Do you believe in GOD?


Answer: We are affiliated with NO organized religious groups. We are The Followers of the Way, and the Way being none other than our Eternal King and Savior YAHUWSHUWA HAMASHIYACH! John 14:6 states: 

  • John 14:6 YAHUWSHUWA saith unto him, I am THE WAY, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Answer: The proper title for the ALMIGHTY Father is ALAHYM and NOT god. God has its origins in pagan and Babylonian history and is deemed as a wicked deity worshipped by the ancient Assyrians called the Deity of Fortune (GAD/GAWD/GOD).
