The New Name of the Messiah
The New Name of the Messiah
If you read closely in the scriptures, you will find that the coming messiah will have a new name. This is repeated many times in the book of Revelations. So, why are people calling on Jesus, or Yeshua when he will not be called by those names anymore? We are not suppose to call on anybody in prayer but the Most High God. The messiah will have a new name. This eliminates any worship of Yeshua/Jesus. The Christians say “in the name of Jesus,” but this can’t be true when he is not named Jesus anymore. (He was never called Jesus, but that is for another article.)
Revelation 3:12 – The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name.
In fact, he is not going to have only a new name, but his name is not known to everyone. We must examine what the scripture is actually saying. Hebrews are looking for Yeshua when there will be no Yeshua returning by that name. Christians are looking for Jesus when there will be no man named Jesus returning. Sunni and Shia are looking for Isa when there will be no Isa. According to scripture, everything will be anew – a new Jerusalem, and even we will have new names.
Revelations 19:12 – His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.
For a man to return like a thief in the night and have a new name, he must have a new birth. In other words, he will be reincarnated. Reincarnation is visible in the scriptures, as the book of Malachi (4:5) states that Elijah, the prophet of the book of Kings, would return. Thus, the scriptures support the notion of reincarnation. Yeshua will return the same way, with a new body and name. He will remain the same, however, in soul and spirit. He is called lamb in the book of revelations as a symbolic gesture because his name has not been revealed yet. Notice the child in the picture points toward the west.
Revelations 12:5 – And she was delivered of a son, a man child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and unto his throne.
The messiah is not to be worshiped as a God. We are only to worship the Most Hight as commanded, with no associating partners. His job is to lead the people to the garden by correcting their teachings and purifying their worship. They will be the ones nearest to God, according to the Qur’an.
Revelations 7:17 – … because the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them. He will lead them to the springs of life-giving water, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
Qur’an 15:45 – Indeed, the righteous will be within gardens and springs.
