Hebrew Voices #53 – Yehovah in Hurricane Irma

Home in Florida boarded up against Hurricane Irma with "YHVH" and "Proverbs 18:10" written on it.In Hebrew Voices, Yehovah in Hurricane Irma, we encounter an inspirational message of hope in the midst of great devastation. Nehemia Gordon speaks to three men in Florida who inscribed God's holy Hebrew name on their houses and learns about the miracles that ensued. These powerful testimonies to the name of Yehovah are a physical expression of Proverbs 18:10, "the name of Yehovah is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and are safe" and Exodus 20:24, "in every place I cause my name to be mentioned, I will come to you and bless you".

Jeffrey Menresa's home in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida boarded up against Hurricane Irma with God's name in Hebrew with full vowels written on the boards. Jeffrey forgot the cholam, the "O" dot over the Heh, but later realized the knot in the wood provided a cholam to complete Yehovah's name!

  1. Shalom listening to this podcast on storm Irma I couldn’t help but to be reminded of Psalms 20 says Yahovah does answer you in the day of distress the name of the Elohim of Ya’aqob does set you on high he does send help from the a qudesh place and does remember all your offerings and your burnt offerings! Selah he does give you according to your heart and fills all your plans we sing of your deliverance and in the name of our Elohim we set up a banner Yahovah does fill all your request now I know that Yahovah shall save his anointed he answered from the set-apart shamayim with the saving might of his right hand some trust in chariots and some in horses but we remember the name of Yahovah our Elohim they, they have bowed down and fallen but we have risen and are established. Save, Yahovah let the sovereign answer us in the yom we call.

  2. Yeah the most important: We do not have silver trumpets right now. We used shofar instead. HE decided to save our area. All my thanks are going to our Creator.

  3. So there is what happened to us: We live on the West Coast of Florida, between Naples and Tampa. Right in the middle. Irma had a landfall approximately at how I remember late afternoon. My husband told me to bake bread, because we were getting ready for days without hot food, and clean water. When Irma arrived at Naples we decided to blow the shofar, as it states in Numbers 10:9. I do not have a good translation, but this is what I have “If you go to war in your land against an adversary that oppresses you, you shall blow a teruah with the trumpets and be remembered before the Lord your God, and thus be saved from your enemies..”
    Hurricane was an adversary. And we asked G-d and we blew shofar. The hurricane slowed down and changed it’s direction to the NE. When it arrived at our town, it was so much weaker. We are attending rabbinical synagogue, our rabbi prayed , everyone prayed, but I do not think that anyone blew shofar. People spoke about what happened all over the place, they thanked G-d and considered it a modern miracle, which it was. G-d wants to be remembered. B”H.

  4. Yep-it was good! Thanks so much for interviewing those men! Praise YHVH! Constantly! That storm was the first I’ve ever evacuated for, and I’ve been through other cat 5, Hugo, in PR. We left because our current house was just not safe with the predicted 15′ surge. We r on concrete stilts but . . .living on an island outside sanibel. It was headed right for us. THEN, when we saw Jim cantori, from weather channel was in ft. Meyers, we knew we were in the most destructive path.

    Electricity was restored right away, 2 days after storm-it’s just amazing and as I know the ONE TRUE GOD, when I walk in and see my methuselah I CONSTANTLY praise and give thanks. When the storm was on its way the 100′ canal, 8′ deep. Was drained down to the mud. Leading edge of storm-so consequently back edge of hurricane would bring that water back in plus the extra surge. That NEVER happened. Praise my KING!

    Great job, thank you for all the prayers NG, DEV & Zev! ??

  5. As the pentecostal in the last testimony, I feel Yehovah’s pleasure when His name is exalted and we trust Him when we speak or right His great name with faith because we love Him. This is more than theory. He is moving in behalf of those that call on His name with a pure heart. He is listening and He cares. Amazing!

  6. Love you and what you stand for but can only READ what you say! I don’t have a Blog nor do I use Facebook nor any other non-written source.
    As Jeremiah says, “Surely our fathers have lied to us”! Profoundly true. Keep up the good work – I get a lot out of the captions.

  7. I LOVE THIS POWERFUL TESTIMONY❣️ I don’t make a habit of posting in all caps, but that’s how strongly I feel about the power of this post❣️❣️❣️

  8. Praise to YEHOVAH His Holy Name is being revealed to those who hunger and thirst for true righteousness and true Holiness that comes by His Spirit RUACH HA CHODESHour very present help in times of trouble will not allow our foot to be removed He that keepeth Yisrael neither slumbers or sleeps..

    Thank you Nehemia for sharing these stories!
    Thank you Nehemia and Michael Rood for all your teachings and proclaiming YEHOVAH’s name that we my proclaim and teach others the CREATOR of the universe’s true NAME!! HALLELUYAH!!

  10. ABSOLUTELY incredible.

    Psalm 46 says

    1God is our refuge and strength,

    an ever-present help in trouble

    2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way

    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

    3though its waters roar and foam

    and the mountains quake with their surging…

    7 Yehovah of Hosts is with us;

    the God of Jacob is our fortress….

    10He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;

    I will be exalted among the nations,

    I will be exalted in the earth.”

    11 Yehovah of Hosts is with us;

    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

    Praise YEHOVAH!

  11. The LORD honors those who share and speak HIS name perhaps? Nehemiah, Thank you for sharing. Especially, Thank you for sharing your heart. I actually heard myself say out-loud (and with a Big smile on my face) ,when you became so excited by these men’s testimonies ,on why they displayed YHVH’s Name on their homes before Irma hit, ….”YAHOVAH YOU must be so Pleased by Nehemiah’s heart for YOU ! You are a Blessing to so many of us who look forward to your weekly podcasts and articles. Thanks so much and may YAHOVAH bless you and yours continually in spirit, soul and body. Shalom
    P.S. earlier this year my husband and I had our DNA tested . I discovered I have in me a very small amount of Ashkenazi Jew. Only 2.3% and yet, this Blessed my socks off ? 🙂 Hugs.

  12. Personal testimony on The Father’s NAME-

    A couple of years ago my son was doing night excerises he told me that one of the soliders got shot in the shoulder one night. The solider didn’t even know it.(he lost a lot of blood) They carry the guns in a different way now and someone had tripped and the gun when off. I told my son to let me know when he would be having another excerise. ( well he didn’t )

    One night, several weeks later, I couldn’t sleep and was up interceding and Applying the NAME of YEHOVAH over my son’s unit and also the companies, battalion and the soliders’ around him. . A few days later he calls..
    This is what he said. ” Mom one of the soliders got shot in the back of the head. Except the bullet grazed the back of his head – from the right side to the left; following the edge of his helmet; It came out his left scalp. He is only going to have hair loss. It compeletly missed his brain. He is going to be ok ”

    This is the second time – The first time was when My son was at the range. One of the soliders didn’t empty out the chamber and it wasn’t checked like it should of been. So there was a live round still left in the chamber. When they brought in the guns. It fell against the locker and went off inside the room. My son had just stepped out and it missed another soliders head by an inch and a half.

    Proverbs 11:21

    Todah Raba- I remember the first time I heard about your interview about the Father’s Name- and 911 while talking with a woman that interviewed you. I couldn’t stop crying … To know that Abba is asking His people in

    Proverbs 30
    He said to me: “Who went up to Heaven and came down, and who is holding the wind in his palms? Who has bound the waters in a napkin and who has established all the ends of the Earth? What is his Name, and what is his Son’s Name, if you know?”

  13. No damage! 20 ft by 12 inch across limb fell safely between two structures without hitting the structures. Irma the largest and potentially massively deadly storm passed by.The bottom half of the rotation was abruptly torn away (which decreased it’s destructive power)which was not expected or typical.Praise Yah!

  14. This is wonderful, Yehovah’s children putting His name on their homes praying for Yehovah Yoshia in the storm … much better than “mother nature must be real mad” responses … for Yehovah is seeking how we will respond in the storm…

  15. It’s appropriate that Jonathan Logan’s first name is a combining of the name of our Creator, Yehovah, with the word “nathan”, which means “give”, which should be pronounced “Yehonathan” (Neh 12:18), and means “Yehovah gives” (Strong H3083, from H3068 and H5414).

    Yara shalam

  16. Wonderful testimonies fella’s!!!
    Praising YHVH for keeping His promises to thousands of generations!

    Shalom to all and may we continue to share His Heavenly Name to all nations, for as long as we remain.

  17. Great HV once again nehemia. I love what the last guys said which was what Yehovah revealed to me this year. DTW Do The Work. The word of Yehovah is all about actions. When we act in accordance to His will great things happen.

  18. Thank you for sharing, it’s so exciting to see people all over the world putting their trust in YHVH, The Name of our Creator!

    Just a side note *isn’t it possible Global warming is actually the polar Ice continuing to melt as the world slowly recovers from the global flood?

  19. Haven’t listened yet but…
    I did the same on my home in st. James city, on pine island, next door to sanibel! Dev sent me Yehovahs name on a book mark and I posted it in the middle of our house. Minor damage. Praise HIM! On Saturday am— before we evacuated I said goodbye -ready to come home to nothing, storm forecasted to sit off coast and plummet us.

  20. What inspiring stories! Nehemia, you are the link for this inspiration. So happy to hear the respect for Yahovah’s name is going on in these turbulent times
