Subject: The Heavenly FAther's Name - Please Respond
If the entire Old Testament was written in Hebrew Tetragrammaton form without vowel points, why is the Father's name the only name we seemingly cannot pronounce? There are several gods that are mentioned by name in the bible, Baal, Molech, Chemosh etc. all written in Hebrew tegrammaton form, no one seems to dispute the pronunciation of these names, but when the powers that be sees YHWH in Tetragrammaton form it is quickly substituted with titles. Hmmm!
Remember in many scriptures Yah commands us to call on his name for salvation, one in particular Joel 2:32 It should come to pass that whosoever calls on the name of YHWH shall be delivered. How can we call on his name if it is without pronunciation? The Priests were commanded to give honor to His name Malachi 2:1-2.
In addition, if your theory holds, why not trash the Old Testament in its entirety as it too was written in Hebrew Tetragrammaton without vowel points. YHWH forbids!
Interesting enough no one seems to have a problem with the pronunciation of Sawtain (Satan)!
Then they that feared Yahweh spake often one to another, in Yahweh hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them who feared Yahweh and that thought upon his name Malachi 3:16

Thanks for the note. You bring up a point which has interested me of a long time. Just how is the YHWH pronounced? How did Moses pronounce this name? How can it be found out what vowels he used with the four consonants to have a viable pronunciation? If you can help me regarding this matter, I will be in your debt.
I am a seeker of truth, but I disdain the opinions of men.
Have a blessed day.
