- Yahwism is the belief in the Almighty Sovereign Creator Power Life-Force as revealed to Ancient Israel in the Hebrew Bible. The name is also a reference to the monotheism of the Hebrew Bible (the belief in the ONE True Almighty Sovereign) as was revealed by Him to the ancient Biblical Israelites, as distinct from the polytheism of the surrounding nations. The word Yahwism derives from the Hebrew YHWH (English Yahweh) the covenant name given to Moses and Israel (Exodus 3:15-16) by the Almighty (YHWH) Himself. Yahweh is the Original Originator of everything that exists. Yahweh means He-Is, He Exists, or Ever-Living. Yahweh is the only Hebrew name for the Almighty that Yahwists (believers in Yahweh as their Almighty Sovereign) accept as the personal proper name for the Almighty. Yahwists reject all replacement names such as God, Jehovah, and Lord, since they are all false non-biblical names.
