Why is his name “RayEl” and not “Jesus”?
As any scriptural scholar will tell you, Christ’s name was “Yeshua”, not “Jesus”. Some will tell you that the name change was caused by “grammatical errors”, “translation differences”, or a litany of other excuses. If you go anywhere in the world and ask for a Coca-Cola, you’ll get a Coca-Cola, yet for some mysterious reason, the world forgot the proper name for the Son of God, a name that would give power to all those who would properly invoke it.
Exodus 20:7 “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that shall take the name of the Lord his God in vain.” When something is used “in vain”, it is being used ineffectually or unsuccessfully. If one calls upon the Son of God, but uses a different name, it is done in vain.
The truth is, the world was purposely confused by Satan, so that no one could invoke the authority of God, through the proper name of His Son, and a “popular name” was given to the uneducated masses, this name was “Jesus”. Open almost any Bible, and you will see that the proper names of Christ and his Father, are replaced with: Jesus, God, Lord, etc. This was done on purpose.
Lord RayEl could have easily proclaimed his name to be “Jesus”, if he wanted to continue the deception, and avoid the controversy, but Lord RayEl insists upon truth in all matters.
Lord RayEl (or “Ra-El”, using Hebrew vowel rules) is not offended when people refer to him as “Jesus”, because he realizes the fault is not in the person who addresses him, but instead with the one who purposely confused the people of Earth. But once you know better, you should wisely avoid using the improper name, lest you be guilty of purposely violating the commandment.
As to why his name is now “RayEl”… Before the Holy Spirit joined with him, his human name was “Raymond Elwood”, which is properly truncated to “RayEl”.
Revelation 19:12 tells us this about Christ’s return, that “he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself”, so Christ’s return, with a name nobody was expecting, is yet another fulfillment of prophecy.
The etymological origin of his name, is traceable back to Egyptian Judaism. RayEl literally means “Word of God”. Further, if you read Revelation 19:13, it clearly tells you that “his name is the Word of God”, so “RayEl” is the name the Bible told you he would have.
