I’m your moderator here at The Only Truth – TOT –
My name is
J. Michael Blair
After retiring in 2003, I began working with a major, Christian ministry, helping to establish an online Bible School. Over a period of several years, I devoted the majority of my time to Bible study and as a Teaching Assistant to students at the online school.
It was during this time that I found eternal, life-changing insights in my Bible hiding in plain sight seemingly unnoticed for centuries. I found I was not alone, as I learned from others who were making and sharing their own discoveries with me and other seekers of truth.
Now for more than 15 years I have been sharing my own and others’ discoveries with any and all willing hearts; those who have eyes to see and ears to hear the truth. What I share here is life changing good news to all who can hear it.
Can you handle the truth?
Did you know that the pronunciation of God’s NAME has been discovered in recent years? You can now choose to actually say God’s NAME when you pray, when you share His eternal TRUTH with those you care about, calling on Him by His NAME as often as your heart desires.
In recent years, God fearing researchers, expert linguists in the ancient Hebrew writings have discovered and shared the proper Hebrew vowels to be used within the Name of our God, in English, without the vowels – “YHVH”. These men include Dr. Nehemia Gordon, Dr. Miles Jones and others.
Since learning the recently revealed truth about how anyone can express God’s Name as He shared it more than 6,870 times in the Old Testament, I am changing my ministry focus to help all who care to know God’s Name, discover the same joy I am finding in praying and singing praises to the Father’s Holy Name, in English, with the vowels – “YeHoVaH”.
I couldn’t help noticing that most of the Christian Church leadership has not been sharing this potentially life changing good news.
While this site remains under construction, you may want to check back frequently to see what has been added as the TOT site is being redesigned, edited and published with this new message.
Please understand that the name of my website, “The Only Truth”, ( TOT ) is not meant to imply that this is the “only” place you can find truth, but rather to let you know I promise to share always and only what I find to be true.
16 years ago I had many questions, including many I have found answers to since then. My hope is that you, in your own search, partly here at TOT, but mostly within your own Bible, may find answers to the many important questions you have now and many more you will seek in the future.
While you won’t find all the answers here, TOT may get you started on an awesome path of discovery, with the objective of leading you onto the path and through the narrow gate into God’s promised coming kingdom on earth.
Everything presented on The Only Truth website is based on what I find in my own Bible and you can find in your Bible as well. It is a long story for another place and time to explain exactly how I came to own this domain name, “TheOnlyTruth.com”. I may share it at some point in the future, but it is not important right now.
What have we missed?
I doubt that anyone in history has ever been pleased to learn that something they understood to be true for many years, perhaps for their entire lifetime, was not true. While they had always believed it to be true, in fact it was at least partly untrue.
It was certainly difficult for me to accept this fact. God’s Name and how to pronounce it was one of numerous important discoveries. Whether I or anyone else in or out of the Christian Church realize it or not, we have inherited many untruths, half-truths and doctrines created long ago, out of the minds of men, too often with evil intent.
The prophet Jeremiah foretold what we are only discovering today, when he prophesied in Jeremiah 16:19…
“O YeHoVaH, my strength and my fortress, my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, ‘Surely our fathers have inherited lies, worthlessness and unprofitable things.”
This verse in Jeremiah 16 has become the beginning point to a journey on this website. As part of that “beginning point”, what is offered / shared here at TOT is based on the firm foundation of first – knowing God – and – knowing His Son – by their Hebrew Names – and – how to pronounce their Names in our English language.
You will discover the Biblical evidence of the Father’s Name, His Son’s Name and some ways you can choose to proclaim their Names to others for yourself.
You may choose to pray to the Father and the Son by pronouncing their Hebrew Names, personally crying out in support of what Jeremiah prophesied many years ago.
We see many examples today of deceptions / lies by those wanting to fulfill their personal lusts and greedy ambitions, whether in Politics, the Media, or the Corporate world. I will help you investigate what our Father God has to say about how we should act in the face of these lying times. Of course, it begins with getting to know the Father and His Son; knowing, saying out loud and praying / praising them by their Names.
Blessings and Shalom*,
* SHäˈlōm: A Hebrew word that is usually translated as “peace,” but more literally means “to be whole and complete.” It is derived from a root meaning to “be whole.” The next time you say the word shalom to someone, remember, you are not just asking that there not be any strife in that person’s life, you are asking that they have everything that they need to be whole and complete. Shalom!
The Name of our God is “YeHoVaH”
Is His Name important to know and to share?
Should you be prepared to call out to God by His Holy Name?
If God’s Name seems very important to Him, then why shouldn’t every believer who knows and loves God feel the same? Thank you, for seeking truth, for your courageous decision to know and fear the Holy Name of our Creator God YeHoVaH!
…God reveals that His Name is eternal, that everyone should know His Name, should call “on the Name of YeHoVaH” and should put their trust in Him.
“Moreover God said to Moses, ‘Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘YeHoVaH God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’”
“Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know My hand and My might; and they shall know that My name is YeHoVaH.”
“And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of YeHoVaH shall be saved.”
“And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, YeHoVaH, have not forsaken those who seek You.”
…God promises to bless those wherever He causes His Name to be remembered.
“~ in every place where I cause my Name to be remembered I will come to you and bless you.”
…God says “everyone” on earth will know His Name.
“~ I will not let them profane My holy name anymore. Then the nations shall know that I am YeHoVaH, the Holy One in Israel.”
…God explains the “secret” reason it is wise to learn to “fear” Him.
“Who is the man that fears YeHoVaH? Him shall YeHoVaH teach in the way He chooses. The man himself shall dwell in prosperity and his descendants shall inherit the earth. The secret of YeHoVaH is with those who fear Him and YeHoVaH will show them His covenant.”
…God says He will “sanctify” His “great Name”.
“And I will sanctify My great Name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am YeHoVaH,” says YeHoVaH GOD, “when I am hallowed in you before their eyes.”
…There is a strong and special place of safety in His Name!
“The name of YeHoVaH is a strong tower, the righteous run to it and are safe.”
“The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in YeHoVaH shall be safe.”
