Did you know that God has multiple names and titles in the bible? Jehovah, Yahweh, Jah, Adonai, Elohim, The Great ‘I AM’, The Most High, and more.
So when I hear someone say that they worship God by one of these names, its okay, because He does answer to them.
Each of the names mean something. They are a way for us to experience God. Kind of like job titles, the names represent parts of God’s personality and ways that He interacts with us.
“Jehovah” expresses that God is a God who ‘does’ things for us. Jehovah is another version of “Yahweh”. It is most often found in scriptures connected with another word – an ACTION word. “The God Who Does _____” I read that God is a God who Brings Victory, Provides for us, Keeps us Safe, Brings us Peace, Is Always Present with us, and more! He is a God who is ACTIVE in our lives – NOT a un-responsive ‘dead’ god that some pray to. In fact the KJV Bible states that Israel knew God as ‘God Almighty’ and had not yet come to know God as Jehovah – so God decided to introduce himself as such.
Exodus chapter 6 verses 2,3
And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD:
And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
“The Great I Am”, “The Most High” are titles that show us that God is above all created things in power and authority. There are those that are ‘high’ and ‘I Am’s’ and ‘gods’, but this God is higher than all of them. Nothing has more authority – No Religion, No Magic, No Witchcraft, No Curse, No Device, No Plot or Scheme, No Worldly Power can compete with or even come close to being as powerful and amazing as The Almighty God!
This is Great news for me! I Believe in a God who is Greater than all my problems combined and I serve him with all my heart.
“Jah” refers to God as the ‘Everlasting’ – a God who never dies, in fact can’t die, a God who exists for eternity. That is wonderful because I know that this is a God who can be relied upon and will be there – always be there!
“Adonai” indicates ‘sovereignty’ and was used by Hebrews instead of speaking God’s name.
“Elohim” is a title of Lord and says that God is in charge.
There are more names, but this gives you a good sample of how names are used to describe God’s character, leadership and authority. I love getting revelation of the Word of God.
Do you see why I love going to this church? And I don’t have to listen to TV preachers anymore?
Do I love the Word?
Yes, I do. Yes, Yes, Yes!!
