Dear Brothers and Sisters in IAUA (ee-ah-oo-ah) our Father,

Greetings on this day of preparation for the weekly Sabbath. I pray this newsletter finds you in good health and happy in the service of IAUA. This is day 15 of month 9 of the Biblical Calendar in the estimated year 6022 Anno Mundi.

The Spring Sabbaths begin with the Biblical New Year's day on the First Sabbath of Unleavened Bread in 17 weeks, day 15 of month 1 (Friday, March 22 of the 2019, Gregorian Calendar, at sunset Thursday, March 21).

On God's Calendar the Biblical month begins on the global day after lunar conjunction. The Biblical year begins with God's New Year's Day (Passover) after the spring equinox (Spring Passover Rule). The Millerite Calendar (Spring New Moon Rule) is a month late in the Gregorian 2019 year. The Calculated Rabbinical Calendar will also be a month late.

It is difficult to communicate clearly. It is difficult to agree on the meanings of words. Pronunciations can be very difficult. I have a saying "Confusion abounds". I try to follow what is in the dictionary. It is even more difficult when you discuss different languages.

An email exchange with a newsletter reader.

IAUShUO (ee-ah-oo-shoo-oh) = Yahushua

IAUA (ee-ah-oo-ah) = Yahuah


I responded:

:-) The names refer to the same persons. However, the traditional spelling indicates an incorrect pronunciation and spelling based on the results of my studies. I show the pronunciation in parentheses for those who have not read my book on the subject, which indicates the reasons for the way I represent the Hebrew letters and the intended pronunciation.


They wrote:

I was just showing the phoenetic pronunciation of the names as you show them. We never sound out individual letters in a persons name Functionally tbe way one pronounces (ee-ah-oo-shoo-oh) comes out as yah-hoo-shoo-ah ... Yahushua.


I responded:

How can you change my pronunciation guide to say something else?

"We never sound out individual letters in a persons name"

Incorrect! I can give you many examples. My wife's name for example is Cynthia. Many people choose to pronounce by slurring or other methods. That does not make it the proper way. Your choice to pronounce the name of God is heavily influenced by the Masoretes who wanted to hide the name of God from the "heathen". My website/book http://www.SacredName.info discusses these issues at length as well as my unpublished website http://www.WordIAUA.info

This webpage also discusses the changes of the Masoretes. I do not agree with everything they say but it is mostly reasonable.



They wrote:

We dont say (see why nin tee ah)
We say (sin thia)

Try saying (ee ah) together.
It becomes Yah.


I responded:

I sensed the discussion was getting intense. I pondered whether there was a reason for this. I apologize! I read:

"We never sound out individual letters in a persons name"


"We never sound out individual VOWELS in a persons name"

My error. This has led to some confusion. I also need to emphasize that this is my opinion of Hebrew after many years of careful study. You may certainly have a different opinion.

Your statement of the pronunciation for Cynthia is correct. However, saying that (ee - ah) becomes yah does not match the conclusion from my studies. My studies indicate this is only what occurs when you slur the two vowels together. Would you pronounce the name Cynthia as (sin-thyah)? It is true that many people slur their words instead of pronouncing distinctly. Sometimes this becomes a tradition. Many people do pronounce (cah-lee-for-nee-ah) as (ca-li-for-nyah) but ask any Spanish person and they will tell you the truth because it is a Spanish word. I doubt that there will be many who would say in-dyah instead of (ind-ee-ah)

A summary of my studies can be found at:

Im sorry if this seemed intense to you. That is one of tbe pitfslls of only wanting to communicate by email.

Your spelling of the name is correct as far as i can tell.

The pronunciation you present seems to me ...not getting tense here .. Ridiculous and embarressing. Personally i could never use it.

That just me. Not attacking you. I think the Father knows when we are talking to Him no matter.

" I doubt that there will be many who would say in-dyah instead of (ind-ee-ah)

A Brit would say in-dyah.

We dont say guh oo duh for God. We say God. Poor example i know.

Most languages are slurred. Example: don't. Most people use a silent "t".

Just saying that if one says ee ah quickly without intentionally breaking it up, one will produce the sound as yah. Just saying...


I responded:

Got it. You disagree with my pronunciation.


When my Holy Spirit gave me eyes to see that my religious denomination of origin was lying about God's Word, the same as all denominations lie, my faith in man's traditions was totally shattered. With a renewed passion I dug deeply in the Word of IAUA to learn all the Truth. IAUShUO says to me, "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life". He showed me the way.

John 16:13 When the Spirit of truth comes, He will lead you to all truth. He will not speak his own words. He will speak only what he hears from the Father. He will tell you what will happen in the future.

Yes! Our Father knows when His children talk of Him whatever name they use. Based on my intense desire to learn more about the Messiah I love, it would be ridiculous and embarrassing for me to avoid using His true name or avoid pronouncing it the best I know. Take note of the 2012-01-27 newsletter Pronunciation.


I pray we may all continue to seek love, peace, and unity in truth preparing for the soon coming of IAUShUO (ee-ah-oo-shoo-oh) Messiah, the Son of God.
