I have stopped using the words "God" and "Jesus". It has come as a revelation and blessing to me that these words are inappropriate as names for our Father and His Son. There is a whole "World" in their names YAHWEH and YAHSHUA.

Oddly enough, God uses the name "God" (elohim in Hebrew, theos in Greek) as His name almost as often He used Yahweh (3848 times versus 5521 times). Yet you tell me that it is inappropriate. I prefer the revelation of God over a man's revelation of his imagination (Ezekiel 13:2-3; Jeremiah 23:16, 25-26).

And then the name Yahshua (the transliteration of the name Joshua from the Hebrew) is not used at all in the New Testament. The New Testament was written in Greek and the Savior's name is transliterated as Iesous. In English this name is written as Jesus.
