Yahweh knew people were going to forget his Holy name as those have done in the past while worshiping his enemy. Jeremiah 23:27. "They think the dreams they tell one another will make my people forget my name, just as their fathers forgot my name through Ba'al worship."
And it did happen for a time. Now it is time for it to be revealed once again! HalleluYAH!

I don't think people are forgetting God's name, I do not know a Christian (or Jew) who does not know the name of the God of Abraham. He did however forbid it to be used lightly or to be erased or defiled, that is why Jews do not write it, and they used to only speak it in the temple, the holy of holies.

Anon- Ok even by that point of view people have forgotten the importance of using it. The whole world doesn't use it. You can believe the excuses of others, but I go by the book. His name is to be used in praise,and song. That is his glory, as we pray.."holy be thy name...."

Wow, i have to say that for the first time ever i agree with M2KNL i have gone wild-watch out!
This passage is not about his name, its about worshipping false Gods.
Daphna do you know what Ba al Worship is? I dont think so because you would know Ba al is a false God.
So it reads "They think the dreams they tell one another will make my people forget my name, just as their fathers forgot my name through false God(Ba al) worship."
