You are looking at a Christian view of Judaism...while talking to Jews...
No years ago I did alot of study on this. YHVH is from the jewish. When a catholic monk translated the name into english he used the J instead of Y because it has the same numerical value and sound. YHVH is written vertically in hebrew to form a picture of a man. YHVH stands for the four elements and unwritten vowels in hebrew the 5th element spread out which is noted as ether. Y=Fire H=Water V=Air H=Earth. Each letter also stand for 4 basic anatomical body aspects. GOD is all as one. So it not only reveals gods name but reveals his actual being.

What is it you think I'm saying? What are you disagreeing with?
 
YHVH is our alphabet...not the Jewish Alphabet... the sounds of the letters may be similar, this may be the translation for the Jewish...but it is obviously not Jewish.... and 2,000 plus years ago they obviously did not stack them on top of each other to form a man. They didn't use those characters...they spoke hebrew (characters above), aramaic (using hebrew or syriac characters or Koine Greek (Γιαχβέ), none of which are our english style YHVH, YHWH, or JHVH

and the letter J.... Online Etymology Dictionary
 
From Yahoo answers:

* When we die, our souls are cleansed of any wrongdoings. This is done by our accounting of every action done in life. It's believed that this process takes no longer than 12 months but most people don't do enough bad in life to warrant it taking a full 12 months.
* Our souls return to HaShem to wait for the world to come.
* Our souls may be reincarnated into different people so that we have additional chances to work to become closer to HaShem.
* Those souls that choose to be truly evil in life, cannot survive the process of cleansing and cease to exist.

The above is not promoted by Biblical Judaism. The idea of "soul" is taken from Gen. 2:7. When HaShem formed man from the dust of the earth, He breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a living soul. To become is to be, not to have. Therefore, we do not have souls; we are souls. It means that "soul" is only the combination of the breath of life with the body. When we die, the breath of life goes back to God Who gave it and the body goes back to the dust where it came from. That's when the combination is undone and the soul becomes non-existent. When we die, therefore, we cease to exist even for God Himself Who is the God of the living and not of the dead. (Mark 12:27; Psalm 88:5)

Our souls do not return to HaShem to wait for the world to come. Soul=person. Therefore, both are one and the same and there is no such a thing as a return of souls to HaShem after death as they are all already in the world-to-come which is the grave; the world wherefrom no one will ever return. (Isa. 26:14; II Sam. 12:23; Job 10:21)

There is no such a thing as "reincarnation" in Biblical Judaism. This is the only life we have to live. There is no other. So, we better live it the best way we can. Last but not least, all souls aka persons, righteous or unrighteous, are under the process of cleansing but only while they live. Once they cease to exist, they are all gone.

If that's true, and it's what you believe, why are you wasting your valuable time posting on forums like this? Wouldn't what little time you have left be better served in the company of family and friends?

If the latter is true, what incentive is there to be righteous or unrighteous? It would make no difference one way or the other, if in the end we are just dead never to return.

LOL.... really? How does that make any difference?

Are you saying you have another lifetime to be in the company of family and friends? Or we are gonna see them again in Heaven so we can ignore them now?

What do you want, a treat in order to act righteously? Treats are given to dogs so that they behave well or act funny. We must act virtuously for the sake of virtue and not, as in the case of Paul, if there is resurrection. (I Cor. 15:32)
