My name is Ron Kenoly. I have been blessed to live my dream. I have traveled the world singing and leading people in Praise & Worship. Everywhere I go my name remains the same.
I am amused sometimes at how some people would attempt to pronounce my names. Sometimes the phonic use in my names are not familiar sounds in some of the indigenous languages, but because the people respect me and want to honor me, they make extra effort to pronounce my names the way I want my names to be spoken and I am very pleased that they would go out of their way to try to execute the correct pronunciation of my names.
With all due respect, I do not intend to accommodate their difficulty in pronouncing my names. My name is connected to the history of my family, my personal accomplishments are attached to my name, my will and testimony are attached to my name, my credibility and integrity is attached to my name and my Heavenly Father knows me by my name.
For these reasons, changing or altering my name for any reason is unacceptable. Therefore, those who wish to address me must refer to me by my names in the way that I wish for it to be spoken.
There are a variety of different names that people use to refer to our Heavenly Father, from one religious group to another, you will find interchangeable names and titles that people assign to our Creator but He has given us one Name, YaHuWaH, and that Name is to be spoken in reference to Him by every generation according to Exodus 3:13-15.
In Exodus 20, in what we refer to as the 10 commandments, our Eternal One says, that we should not take His Name in vain. He is very serious about how we respect and speak His Name.
Let us put The Name of YaHuWaH in our hearts and in our mouths and forever declare that YaHuWaH is our Mighty One.
Love and shalom,
Dr. Ron Kenoly
