Pastor of the Family of Christ Church, Stephen Nti Mensah has advised Christians to desist from using the word ‘Jehovah’ because it is another name for Satan, happyghana.com reports.
According to the report, Pastor Nti Mensah opines those who used Jehovah to represent God or Jesus Christ are rather exalting Satan. This, he said is backed by revelations from God and subsequent researches.
“On the 31 of December, 1989, I got a revelation through a dream. An elderly told me in the dream that Jehovah was not his name and that it was another name for the devil. I woke up suddenly and became frightened because I had always known Jehovah to be God’s name. So as a pastor, I decided to follow it up myself to get some evidence to back the claim since it looked very difficult to propagate. I had attended Bible school so I had several books which spoke about Jehovah so I used them as aids for my research. The message was too strange that nobody wanted to listen to me although I got the strong urge to tell the world about my revelation because it is haunting me.
“Jehovah is a Hebrew Word. Israeli names are mostly two words joined together. The word Jehovah was inserted into the Bible for the first time in 1530 by William Telday. The original manuscript of the Bible had no Jehovah in it but when Alexander the Great asked that it be translated from Hebrew into Greek by 70 men, then the change happened. ‘Yah’ means creator or innovator and ‘hovah’ means he who brings iniquity or evil so the word Jehovah means ‘father of all evil’. The word Jehovah was first used in the year 1270 original of the word was from 1270,” Pastor Mensah said.
He was saddened ‘Jehovah’ was now being extolled more than Jesus Christ and God.
“It is saddening that today you ask pastors and fetish priests of God’s name and they all tell you Jehovah. We are covering the name Jesus Christ with Jehovah. In fact the first time Jehovah even appeared in a dictionary was in 1557 in the John Foster dictionary. God has told us that the name that gives salvation is Jesus Christ and not any other name. The word which was in the original Bible manuscript was YHWH which no one could pronounce. God said he hid the pronunciation of the name so he could tell the world one day. It was only king Solomon who tried to pronounce the name but he decided not to for the fear of turning into an animal,” he said.
