The Wiccan Rede

Bide the Wiccan Laws we must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust. Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give. Cast the Circle thrice about To keep the evil spirits out. To bind the spell every time Let the spell be spake in rhyme. Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak little, listen much. Deosil go by the waxing moon, Chanting out the Witches' Rune. Widdershins go by the waning moon, Chanting out the baneful rune. When the Lady's moon is new, Kiss the hand to her, times two. When the moon rides at her peak, Then your heart's desire seek, Heed the North wind's mighty gale, Lock the door and drop the sail. When the wind comes from the South, Love will kiss thee on the mouth. When the wind blows from the West, Departed souls will have no rest. When the wind blows from the East, Expect the new and set the feast. Nine woods in the cauldron go, Burn them fast and burn them slow. Elder be the Lady's tree, Burn it not or cursed you'll be. When the Wheel begins to turn, Let the Beltane fires burn. When the Wheel has turned to Yule, Light the log and the Horned One rules. Heed ye Flower, Bush and Tree, By the Lady, blessed be. Where the rippling waters go, Cast a stone and truth you'll know. When ye have a true need, Hearken not to others' greed. With a fool no season spend, Lest ye be counted as his friend. Merry meet and merry part, Bright the cheeks and warm the heart. Mind the Threefold Law you should, Three times bad and three times good. When misfortune is enow, Wear the blue star on thy brow. True in Love ever be, Lest thy lover's false to thee. Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do what ye will.

A question I am asked a lot.

Why do I say "Yeshua" instead of  is real name "Jesus"? 

My Answer is because the letter "J" did not exist when Yeshua walked on this earth.  In my studies and there is a lot available out there. I used this one link here to help today with this blog. Here is a portion of it.

It is most proper to call Him Yeshua. It was indeed his proper name, given to him by his parents, and only in Hebrew does this name have any meaning. In Hebrew Yeshua means both "Salvation," and the concatenated form of Yahoshua, is "Lord who is Salvation." The name Jesus has no intrinsic meaning in English whatsoever.
In fact have you ever noticed how many people have the name "Jesus" today? According to the last U.S. Census, there are some 242,285 people in the U.S. with the first name Jesus. Statistically the 276th most popular first name.

Continuing on -  Yeshua is a Hebrew name which has been transliterated into Greek as Iesous (IhsouV: pronounced "ee-ay-SUS"). The English "Jesus" comes from the Latin transliteration of the Greek name into the Latin Iesus. Now Greek has no "y" sound, but the Latin "i" is both an "i" and a "j" (i.e., it can have a consonantal force in front of other vowels), the latter of which is properly pronounced like the English "y" (which explains the German Jesu, "YAY-su")That is why we spell Jesus as we do, taking it straight from Latin, but we pronounce the name with a soft "j" sound because that is what we do in English with the consonantal "j". Again please refer to the link above for more in-depth study of the spellings of "Yeshewa" name.

It really does not matter if you used one name or title over another as long as you have a personal relationship with "HIM". If I had a dear relationship with a person and the called me "BABY" do you not think I would know that, that person was referring to me or "CAREBEAR" or any other name attached to me.

The idea also can be extended to which bible do I use,  I use the RNKJV "Restore Names King James Version. I also like the 1611 version of the King James Bible. All though the newer  version of the Bible are easier to read many times the true meaning of the original text is lost if you compare it to the other translations available. So it is often nice to have a comparative bible to read, I have one but the print is so small to my eyes that I now often use on-line bibles frequently.  Again it is more important to have a one and one personal relationship with "Yeshua" than worry about which bible you should have. Pick one that you can read and enjoy.  If you do not know him I pray that you seek HIM out and find out how are a "Friend" he is.

I do not profess to be the best "Child of YWYH (GOD)" but I am constantly seeking his way. We all fall short of his Glory, it is only by his grace and mercy that we are whole. That reminds of the story of the prodigal son, did not his father welcome his son home with open arms upon the son's return.

So weather you call him LORD, SAVIOR, JESUS, CHRIST, MESSIAH, MASTER, KING, NAZARENE or many other names he has come to be known, just be sure to know HIM in your heart.
