In an effort to get back to the Hebraic roots of Christianity, we at The Delusion Resistance have incorporated the use of Hebrew terms into a lot of our articles. So in order to make things clear we have included this page so that those reading our articles can know the terms that we use, and to know that they are just the words and terms used the original Hebrew form.
Aveinu – (ah-vey-nu) Literally means, “our Father.”
Adonai – (ah-doe-ny) The modern way that Jewish people say “lord.” Said in this form because Jews think that it’s not permitted to say Yahweh, or Jehovah because God’s name is too holy to utter. Rarely written on our web pages because we think we have permission to utter Yahweh, YHWH or Jehovah since we are heirs to the Kingdom of God and have a personal relationship with God through recognition and acknowledgement or the blood atoning sacrifice of Jesus.
Baruch – (bah-rook) Hebrew for “blessed,” or “bless.”
Baruch Ha Shem – (bah-rook ha Shem) Hebrew for “praise the Lord.” Translates out, “blessed be The Name.”
