“Did you know that the Father’s name is revealed in the Son’s name? 72 times, the Father’s name (Yahuw) appears at the end of Hebrew names in the Tanakh. 27 times, the Father’s name (Yahuw) appears at the front of Hebrew names in the Tanakh. 72 + 27 = 99 But there is one name in the Tanakh, that has the Father’s name (Yahuw) IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NAME! And that one name represents the 100th sheep that has been lost, but will be found by our Shepherd!” By Maria Merola אריאל

For many years I had often wondered why I could not seem to find anything in the Tanakh (Old Testament) Scriptures relating to the parable that our Messiah told about the “one hundred sheep,” and the one that was lost (Matthew 18:12 & Luke 15:4).
However, on one fine day, I discovered that these “one hundred sheep” have been “hidden” from our eyes under Gentile names that were given to them by the English translators.
All along, the Heavenly Father knew who these “lost sheep” were, and they were not “lost” to him. They were only“lost” to their true identity as Yisraelites!
In other words, they did not know who they were, because they did not know the name of their Heavenly Father.
Beloved, in these last days, the “lost sheep” are being discovered, and they are finding out who they really are!
When these lost sheep from the Gentile nations begin to truly “know” the Heavenly Father (intimately), by his true“hidden name,” they will be found of him, and they will also come into their own true identity as “sons!”
I receive a lot of criticism, (even within the Hebraic Root’s Community), because I place an emphasis on using the correct name for our Heavenly Father and our Messiah.
However, just so that you understand, I am not one who condemns people to the Lake of Fire for using the name “Jesus” or “Yeshua.” Neither do I condemn those who use Jehovah, Yehovah, or Yahweh for our Father’s name.
I do believe that the Father is extending mercy for this season, (while people are trying to sift through all the confusion about his name). However, there will come a day when the Anti-Messiah will make it punishable by decapitation to use his true name. This is even stated in the Noahide Laws. See the links below to learn more:
Beware of the Noahide Laws
When this happens, all counterfeit names for our Creator will be enforced by the beast, and people will have to choose whether to obey the Scriptures, (and face the death penalty); or to obey the Vatican Papal Beast by using vain empty titles for their generic gods.At that point, calling upon any counterfeit name (enforced by the beast), will mean that are worshiping, and obeying the beast.
To read more about how the Mark of the Beast will be implemented (to include decapitation) for using the true name of our Creator, see my other blog entitled: “The Hidden Character of Ha’Shem.”
Our Messiah’s name is “Joshua” which is #3091 in the Strong’s Hebrew Concordance as “YeHoWshuwa” which is the modern rendering of this name. But in Ancient Hebrew it was “YaHuWshuwa” which means “YaHuWaH is salvation.”
So why do I make such a big deal about saying the Father’s name and the Son’s name correctly?
The real issue behind the name “Jesus” verses the true Hebrew name of our Messiah Yahuwshuwa is found in the story of Joseph and his lost brothers. When Pharaoh changed Joseph’s name to “Zaphnathpaaneah,” he became a savior to the Egyptians (Gentiles) because he saved them from a famine (Genesis 41:45).
However, when his brothers came to buy grain, they did not recognize him under that name. When Joseph said to them “I am YaHuWceph” their eyes were opened to him (Genesis 45-3-4)!
Our Heavenly Father’s name is “YaHuW,” and it is seen within 100 different names of Yisraelites in the Tanakh (Old Testament). This name “YaHuW” is embedded in Joseph’s name (see #3084 in the Hebrew Concordance), and it means “YaHuWaH shall increase.”
Joseph is a prophetic “type” of Messiah, and ten brothers (minus Benjamin), are symbolic of the Ten Northern Tribes of the “lost sheep” of the House of Ephrayim. These lost sheep were scattered to the four corners of the earth for their idolatry.
When Joseph revealed the Father’s name (YaHuW) to them within his own name, their eyes were opened to him, and there was restored fellowship!
Similarly, the lost sheep will not recognize their Messiah with the man-made name of “Jesus” or “Jehovah!” This is why YaHuWaH has revealed to me to call our Messiah by his real name which is “YaHuWshuwa” because it has the Father’s name in it!
To learn more about the origin of the name “Jesus Christ” see my other blog entitled: “Does the Name “Jesus” Really Come from Zeus?”
Therefore, the Father is glorified in his Son! This is why in John 5:43 he said “I am come in my Father’s name.” He meant more than just his authority, because the Hebrew word for “name” (shem) means “a physical mark.” And so in order to bring the lost sheep home to their Messiah, we must use his real name which also reveals the Father’s name!
It is also important to note that the name “Zaphnathpaaneah” has a “double meaning” because Joseph was the one to inherit a “double portion” of his father Jacob’s blessing (Genesis 48:22) In Egyptian, the name “Zaphnathpaaneah” means “savior of the world,” but in Hebrew it means “a revealer of a secret!”
In these last days our Messiah is revealing his true name and his true identity to us so that we can be given our own true identity as Yisraelites!
See my other blog entitled: “My People Shall Know My Name!”
We are about to find these one hundred sheep in the in the Hebrew Old Testament aka“Tanakh,” by first finding out which ones the Heavenly Father has placed his own name.
You are about to be blown away as you discover that there are exactly 100 names in the Hebrew Tanakh (Old Testament) with the “Father’s name”embedded in them. We will first begin with all the names that have Father’s name at the end of their name.

The Name YaHuW versus YeHoW: The Great Talmudic Cover-Up
In the 10th Century a new grammatical rule was invented by the Hebrew Scribes called “the pre-tonal shortening rule.” This rule states that whenever the Father’s name (YaHuW) appears at the beginning of a name then it changes to “YeHoW.” But if it appears at the end of names then it can remain as “YaHuW.” Why was this done?
After the House of Judah (the Jewish people) came out of Babylonian Captivity, they were afraid that the Gentiles would take the sacred name of the Creator in vain, so they thought it was their duty to make the name of the Father against the law to pronounce. Here is what it says in the Talmud:
It is forbidden to read the glorious and terrible name as it is written, as the sages said “He that pronounces the name as it is written has no portion in the world to come.” Therefore it must be read as if it were written “Adonai,”—- (Mishnah Berurah 5:2).
Now we can begin to unravel the mystery behind how and why this “pre-tonal shortening rule” was invented. It was done so that the Creator’s name would not be pronounced as “YaHuW.”
This is how we know that the name YeHoW (pronounced yay-ho) as seen in the name YeHoVaH or YeHoWaH is not the correct way to pronounce the Creator’s name.
In the original Hebrew Scriptures, names not only ended with “Yahuw,” but they also began with “Yahuw.” This was determined by comparing other languages like Arabic and Cuneiform.
Jehoahaz – An inscription of Tiglathpileser III records tribute being received from Iauhazi (mat) Ia-u-da-a.
‘Jehoahaz of Judah.’ —The Illustrated Bible Dictionary.
Jehoiachio—“In Babylon, Jehoiachin was treated as a royal hostage. He is named (Yau-kin) in Bab. tablets, dated 595 and 570 BC, as receiving rations at the court in company with his five sons.”—The Illustrated Bible Dictionary.
Jehonuthan—“The name occurs in Cuneiform records as Yahuw-natunnu.”—-Seventh-day Adventist BIBLE DICTIONARY.
Jehu—“Cuneiform Ia-u-a.” The New Brown-Driver-Briggs-Gesenius Hebrew English Lexicon. In Arabic, Jehu was pronounced “Yahuw.” See Hastings Dictionary of the Bible. All this evidence and more, suggest that “Yahuw” was used at the beginning of names, instead of the more Modern Jewish “Yehow” cover up of the set-apart name. Therefore, the 27 following names are restored to their original pronunciation.
27 Names in the Tanakh (Old Testament) Begin with YaHuW (Yahu)
|Strong’s #||Name||Meaning||Common Name|
|#3058||Yahuw||YaHuWaH is He||Jehu|
|#3061||Yahuwd||a name for Judea||Jehud|
|#3063||Yahuwdah||Praise YaHuWaH Genesis 29:35||Judah|
|#3064||Yahuwdiy||a Jew, a descendant of Judah or Yahuwdah||Jew|
|#3067||Yahuwdiyth||Jewess-Jehudith, a Canaanitess||Judith|
|#3068||YaHuWaH||I AM THAT I AM Exodus 3:14||Jehovah|
|#3090||Yahuwshabath||YaHuWaH has sworn||Jehoshabeath|
The Father’s name is seen in the original Ancient Hebrew Scriptures only one time time with “Yahuw” in the middle as follows:
#454Elyhow`eynayel-ye-ho-ay-nah’ee; from 413 and 3068 and 5869; towards Jehovah (are) my eyes; Eljehoenai or Eljoenai, the name of seven Israelites:–Elihoenai, Elionai.
What is interesting is that this name Elyahuweynay means “My eyes are towards YaHuWaH.” Is it possible that the one lost sheep who our Messiah goes after is represented by the one who has the Father’s name hidden in the middle? And is it also possible that once their eyes are opened to his true name, their deafness and blindness will be healed?
Yisra’el has been deaf and blind to their maker and to their Messiah for more than two Millennia (Isaiah 29:18; 35:5; 43:8; Matthew 13:13-4; Acts 28:26). I believe that the name of the Father is the key to these lost sheep finding out who they really are.
In totality, we can see the Creators name, YaHuW is in the original Hebrew scriptures as follows:
72 times at the end of names.
27 times at the beginning of names.
1 time in the middle of a name.
72 + 27 + 1 = 100!
Could it be that these two numbers in reverse (72 & 27) have to do with the Two Houses of Yisra’el? The 72 names would then represent the Ten Northern Tribes of the House of Ephrayim (who become the fullness of the Gentiles when they discover who they really are) and the smaller number would represent the Two Southern Tribes of the House of Yahuwdah (Judah).
This would make sense, because it is the House of Yahuwdah (Judah or Jews) who changed the vowel points at the beginning of 27 names to YeHoW instead of YaHuW!
This reminds me of the parable of the “ninety-nine sheep” who are left so that Messiah can find that one who is lost:
Matthithyahuw (Matthew) 18:
11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
12 How think you? if a man have a hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, does he not leave the ninety and nine, and goes into the mountains, and seeks that which is gone astray?
13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoices more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
There are 100 names in the Tanakh (Old Testament) that contain our Heavenly Father’s name (YaHuW), and this represents the 100 sheep in this parable. But the one lost sheep is represented by the one name where the Father’s name appears in the middle of the name, and that one name is Elyahuw`eynay (Elihoenai).
This name has been applied to seven different Yisraelites, and I believe this represents the seven congregations in the book of Revelation who have been grafted into the olive tree of Yisra’el.
So we have the 72 names of Yisraelites with “Yahuw” at the end, which I believe represents the Ten Northern Tribes of Ephrayim. But then we also have the 27 names that have the name “Yahuw” at the front of names, but the House of Yahuwdah (Judah) changed the vowel points to make it appear as “Yehow!”
This is why I believe that we can assimilate the 27 names to the Two Southern Tribes of the House of Judah. When we combine these two numbers, we get a total of 99 sheep!
However, the one lost sheep is a picture of the one name of “Elyahuw`eynay” (Elihoenai),whose name has been applied to seven Yisraelites. This name of Elihoenai (#H454) is seen in the following passages: 1st Chronicles 3:23-24; 4:36; 7:8; 26:3; Ezra 8:4; 10:22 &27; Nehemiah 12:41.
In 1st Chronicles 26:3, Elyahuw`eynay (Elihoenai) is the seventh son of Meshelemyahuw who was a gatekeeper and his sons also were gatekeepers of the Tabernacle of Dawiyd.
In Ezra 8:4, Elyahuw`eynay was among those who returned to Jerusalem out of the Babylonian Captivity.
In Ezra 10:22 & 27, Elyahuw`eynay (Elihoenai) was among those who divorced their heathen wives who caused them to sin against YaHuWaH. In Nehemiah 12:41 Elyahuw`eynay (Elihoenai) was the name of a priest who blew trumpets in the House of Elohiym.
I believe that this name Elyahuw`eynay (Elihoenai) can possibly represent the seven assemblies in the book of Revelation who were former Gentiles, but through the blood covenant of Messiah, Yahuwshuwa, they were grafted into the House of Yisra’el.
There are also some other prophetic pictures that we can see about these numbers. You can add up the numbers as follows:
7 + 2 = 9 for 9 gifts of the Spirit in 1st Corinthians 12:4-11.
2 + 7 = 9 for 9 fruits of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22.
The 9 gifts of the spirit are usually emphasized by the larger group (72) because the House of Ephrayim (Christian Church) tends to emphasize the gifts of the spirit (manifestations) more than the fruit of the spirit.
But the 9 fruit of the spirit is usually more apparent among the smaller group (27) for the House of Judah, for this group tends to emphasize “good deeds” more than manifestations. Obviously both elements are needed to have balance. We need to have fruit (deeds) and also gifts of the spirit in operation which is the evidence of the presence of YaHuWaH.
The #7 in scripture usually applies to the seven covenants evidenced by the seven colors of the rainbow. It also represents the seven-branch menorah, and the seven spirits of YaHuWaH in Isaiah 11:1-2; Revelation 4:5 & 5:6. There are also seven congregations in the book of Revelation and seven continents of the world (nations).
The larger group represented by the #72 could mean that they (the seven congregations) will join themselves in the last days to the Two Southern Tribes of Judah as seen in Zechariah 8:23.
The larger group represented by the #72 has the name of the Father at the “end of names” which could mean that they are the “last born” or the youngest, just like the younger brother in the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15.
But the smaller group represented by the #27 (Judah), has the Father’s name at the front of names, but they disguised it with different vowel points. Judah was “born first” to Jacob, but in the last days, Ephrayim represented by the #72 (the larger group) are called “my firstborn” (Jeremiah 31:9).
In these last days, those of us who have an emphasis on the sacred name, are beginning to restore the correct vowel points to the Father’s name at the front of names as well as at the end of names.
This could symbolize the “double portion blessing” of Yahuwceph (Joseph), for he is a type of Messiah who inherits both Houses of Yisra’el, the first and the last, the beginning and the ending.
Yahuwshuwa came to represent both houses, and this is why he referred to himself in Revelation 1:8 as“The Aleph and Taw, (Alpha & Omega), the beginning and the ending.”
Those who restore the Father’s name at the end of names as well as at the beginning of names represent the ones who inherit the double portion!
In other words, they are the 27 + 72 = 99! The double portion blessing includes 9 fruits of the spirit as well as 9 gifts of the spirit!
