We are a Sacred Name ministry in metro Detroit Michigan providing research from modern scholarship on the question of the true name of our Heavenly Father. We believe in incorporating the true Divine Names in worship for both YHVH the Father and Yahshua (sometimes spelled Yeshua) the Messiah.


We Praise the Glorious Name of our Heavenly Father - 1 Chronicles 29 verse 13




Special Report: Hidden Message of YHWH In Biblical Hebrew Word Pictures!

The word "BARA" is a Hebrew word meaning "create" or "creation." We read in Genesis chapter one, verses 1, 2, and 21, "In the beginning Elohim created the heaven and the earth...And Elohim said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And Elohim created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and Elohim saw that it was good." (Sacred Name Version)

Hebrew letters also stood for word-pictures. For example, the Hebrew letter "a" was named "alef" meaning an ox. The Hebrew letter "b" was named "bet" meaning a house. The Hebrew "g" or "gamel" meant a camel, and this is in fact the source of our English word for that animal. Many English words have a Hebrew origin by way of Greece or Rome.

In addition, combinations of Hebrew letter "word pictures" also told a composite story. For example, the Hebrew word "bara" was a combination of the ideas "house, head, and power;" in other words conveying the thought that "the head of this house is seated in power."

For those of us involved in Bara Ministries, the head of our homes is the Almighty Yah Elohim, spelled in Hebrew as YHWH or YHVH, and pronounced as "Yahweh" or more probably as "Yahuah" since the letter "w" (a double-u) was not in the original Hebrew alphabet. We invite you to learn more about the wonderful Creator we serve on our articles page.

We also encourage you to grow closer personally to the Almighty by using His personal Hebrew Holy Name, Yahuah, and our Savior's name in Hebrew, Yahshua. Our Savior's name is also spelled Yeshua. This is explained in greater detail on our articles page 1.

THE SACRED NAME RIDDLE !! What is the name of Elohim?

Psalm 30:4 is in the form of a riddle with importance to us as Christian believers. It states, "Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?" (KJV) The answer to the first part of the riddle is found in the New Testament; in John 3:13 we are told Who it is that ascended into heaven, and descended. Then we are told Who it is that established the ends of the earth in Psalm 72:8, and Who it is that gathered the wind and is sovereign over all the ends of the earth in Psalm 135:7.

But now comes the hard part. What is His Name, and His Son's Name? The answer to this is a mystery to most Christians and Jews, but we have provided the answer for you in an accompanying article, "What Is His Name?"
