The Real Secret ~ Ahyh and Libby Maxey

The Real Secret

by Ahyh & Libby Maxey*

[As it appears in the August 2011 Newsletter]

Lesson 183 is “I call upon God’s Name and on my own,” yet God’s actual Name is never mentioned in the lesson!

Lesson 184 is equally as significant, and cryptic: “The Name of God is my inheritance.” Here again, God’s Name is not mentioned.

Dr. Helen Schucman, the scribe of A Course in Miracles may not have known God’s Name, but Jesus the Christ, the voice who spoke to Helen, certainly did! Indeed, for the entire Judeo-Christian tradition there is one and only one Personal Name for Divinity found in the Bible. Still, the purpose for A Course in Miracles required that it be as non-sectarian and widely-appealing as possible.

As you can well imagine, there is a lot that could be said about this essential topic. A lot. Cutting straight to the chase, we will give you what you absolutely must know. When all is revealed, the great secret of the ages is this:


For beings like us, “Sue” or “Libby” or “Frank” will suffice as names. Our names re-present us, embodying all that we are in letters, word and sound.

For God, simple letters and words would never do – God’s Name needs to be a quantum leap above and beyond human language and our simple ideas about names. Amazingly, the Bible has held this secret for thousands of years!


The Bible reveals that there is only one Personal Name for Divinity. Known as the Tetragrammaton, (meaning “the four-letter Name”) this Name appears in the Bible over 6,000 times. In Hebrew, this Name (spelled right-to-left) is

Transliterated into English, these four letters are (left-to-right)


As a student of spirituality, you have probably seen this Name shown many ways: YHVH, JHWH, JHVH, Yahweh, Yahveh and others. Even “Jehovah” is based on the original Hebrew Tetragrammaton.

Here is the wonder and the mystery.

God’s Personal Name, the Tetragrammaton, indicates God’s REAL Name. God did not spell His/Her REAL Name left-right, nor right-left, but top-bottom. Simply take the four Hebrew letters of the Tetragrammaton, and spell it vertically:

That’s you! God’s personal Name, , spelled vertically is a pictogram of a human being: head, arms, torso and legs, indicating God’s REAL Name:



Now we can see the depths of revelation “hidden” in the Course’s Lessons 183 & 184: “To call upon His Name is but to call upon your own.” That’s because you ARE God’s Name.  You re-present God to the world. All of Divinity’s glory is embodied in you!

“Your Father’s Name reminds you who you are, even within a world that does not know; even though you have not remembered it.” YHWH reminds us of our true nature, made in God’s image, the perfect reflection of Divinity. And you, as an ascended being, reflect God to everyone around you.

“In this eternal, still relationship, in which communication far transcends all words and yet exceeds in depth and height whatever words could possibly convey, is peace eternal. In our Father’s Name, we would experience this peace today. And in His Name it shall be given us.”

It is so! It always has been, and could never be otherwise. The Name waits patiently for you to discover the truth of your own identity.

We highly recommend that you return to Lessons 183 & 184 with this new understanding of God’s Name. Knowing God’s Name (and your own!) will unlock greater and deeper insight and revelation.


Maybe this is a review for you, or perhaps your head is spinning. Please relax, and know these three essential things:

1) We are NOT making this up. We neither invented nor discovered this “secret” knowledge. Amazingly, this has been on nearly every page of the Old Testament since well before Jesus came to the Earth.

2) There is a lot of material that is meant to help you really get your mind and heart around this Name. We host, and have written a new book that explains all essential aspects of spirituality from the perspective of God’s Holy Name. The book is called The Future Testament. You can explore it at

3) We are real people. This ministry is our full-time job. We are here to help you, if we can. Please feel free to email us at

May love and peace continue to grow, as you recognize God’s Name as your essential self.

Love, Ahyh andLibby Maxey.


*The leadership of The Church of Yahweh (“TCOY”) consists of a small group of people in Tennessee and Southern California. We all have day jobs, families, hobbies, and affiliations with other Churches; one sometimes plays the organ at a Lutheran Church, one teaches Bible Studies at a Methodist Church, and so on.We have come together for One Primary Purpose: To remove the obscurity & ignorance surrounding God’s Divine, Holy Name, and see how that Name can be used as a precious gift to help transform our lives. The Church of Yahweh is a non-denominational (which, in today’s world, means that TCOY is its own denomination) outreach. Occasionally we have local meetings, but our primary tool is the World Wide Web.
