How Great Your Name Throughout The Earth!
Let us not neglect what the Ancient Books of The Bible say about The NAME OF GOD! .. Searching For Truth .. Guidance .. Counsel ... Help in Overcoming Drugs .. Unity In Your Life .. Trying To Identify Your Problem .. Searching for The Best Solution ..
Maybe it's time we all try to look to the Light of The World and ASK GOD to reveal and shed some "light" through The Power and Glory of His Holy Name! God's is "light" - PURE LIGHT - and there is no darkness in Him. As you read .. study .. look at His very "names" .. the power in His Name will reveal Himself and His "Light" to you as if through the facets of a perfect diamond revealing different "brilliance" .. depending on where you are in Christ Jesus ..
Having a relationship with God Our Father is not intended to overwhelm your existence .. but help each of us to a better understanding of Who God "Our father" is .. His "nature" .. His .. character attributes .. God's Promises that are straightforward and simple.
God's Word and His Message is "not hidden" .. except in the sense of Matthew 13:45-46 .. "finding a pearl of great price" .. God's Word will help you answer all your questions. It explains itself, by The Power of Itself ( Isaiah 55:11 ) .. and The Word Made Flesh (Jesus) as it says in John 1:14 .. "The Word became a human being. He made his home with us. We have seen his glory. It is the glory of the one and only Son. He came from the Father. And he was full of grace and truth."
The Light of God's Name .. and The "meanings" of His "character revelations" .. will by it's very nature - influence how you see yourself .. how you see others ... and if you will but spend a few minutes with God's Names .. you'll know in your "Knower" .. what God is trying to say to you.
BE FORE-WARNED as in ( Isaiah 6:9,10 ) .. to outsiders everything is told by using stories. 12 In that way, “‘They will see but never know what they are seeing. They will hear but never understand. Otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!’”
If you seek some "confirmation" .. then pray for it as in .. Paul's Message in 1 Corinthians 2:4 .. the Spirit's Power … 3 I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, 4 and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

If God's Light is shining in you as a "new believer" .. then you might consider comparing yourself to a diamond .. the old clump of "coal" is past away .. and now as you set out to discover some things about yourself such as cut, color, and clarity you might be as this new diamond and how you transmit God's light to those around you .. shape or cut, round, a little princess, radiant beauty .. all describes a diamond's form primarily as "viewed from above" .. maybe here is a good time to consider HOW GOD "sees" you? .. a time to consider .. how to break off lies, strongholds, addictions, shame and anything else that is holding you back from unlocking the door to let Jesus Christ into your life ..
You see, like all diamonds we all have different attributes .. imperfections .. a different "cut" determined by the MASTER - Put simply, the better a diamond is cut the more "brilliance" or "sparkle" it will have. If God does not make mistakes and he is the ONE who made you .. the He has a specific purpose .. for His Light to pass through you for others to see.. and maybe what you are looking for is an "Unbiased" grading report - Look No Farther .. simply look to God! ... and the best way I have ever found is to "look into God's Character .. as He "revealed Himself" .. in His Holy Name!
WHAT'S IN A NAME? .. Are "names" important?
In ancient times .. in the Old Testament .. in all of man's history .. a name was not only identification, but an identity as well. Many timesa special meaning was attached to the name - even before one's birth .. Names had, among other purposes, an explanatory purpose (e.g., Nabal, whose name means "fool," is the target of Abigail's explanation to David: "For as his name is, so is he; Nabal is his name, and folly is with him:" (1Sa 25:25).
Throughout Scripture God reveals Himself to us through His Names. When we study these names that He reveals to us in the Bible, we will better understand who God really is. The meanings behind God's names reveal the central personality and nature of the One who bears them.
Who is God to you? .. do you want to get to know more of Him?
Consider this thought .. this fact came from John 10:30 (NIRV) .. 30 I and the Father are one.”
.. JESUS is the "fullness" of God .. The Word made flesh .. the Second Person of The Holy Trinity - THE SON OF GOD .. and by and thru His “blood” sacrifice as The Lamb of God at Calvary - Jesus not only made a new “covenant” – HE BECAME THAT NEW COVENANT WITH GOD!
You say .. "so what"" .. then you should read what Jesus had to say about - Woes to Scribes and Pharisees in (Luke 11:37-54)
Now we can call GOD, “Our Father” ... we are “heirs with Christ” .. we are “children” according to the WORD MADE FLESH .. so I ask you this question: "what child cannot go to his father and ASK, SEEK .. or KNOCK?
Consider these Names and Meanings from the Old Testament (OT) Bible:
- "EL" .. God "mighty, strong, prominent" ( used over 250 times (OT).
- "ELOHIM" .. God .. used some 2,570 times in the OT.
- "JEHOVAH ELOHIM" ... The "LORD God"
- "EL SHADDAI" .. God's Name meaning - God Almighty or "God All Sufficient." ( used over 48 times in the OT ).
- "ADONAI" .. "Lord" in our English Bibles "Master'' .. used over 300 times in OT.
- "JEHOVAH" .. "LORD"
- "YAHWEH" .. the "covenant name of God" .. used over 6823 times in OT ..
Take a moment .. close your eyes .. ask God to help you to have "eyes to see" .. and "ears to hear" ... eyes to hear .. and ears to see .. as you listen ... http://youtu.be/DuXB1a3NBCw
WHAT ABOUT JESUS .. The NEW COVENANT ..
In simple terms, a covenant is an agreement between two parties ... a pact between two .. an alliance .. an agreement between God and humanity .. . The new covenant is an agreement between God and mankind .. God set the terms .. God makes the offer ..
... and we respond to God .. with either cooperation or resistance.
ASK YOURSELF SOME QUESTIONS? .. How can you have a "relationship" .. with someone you do not know? .. How can we become "friends" with someone and not even know His NAME? .. As sinners, we are alienated from God .. estranged from him .. sin and corruption cannot enjoy or be in GOD'S presence - But because he is "All Good" .. and "All Loving" - God acted decisively to end our alienation and restore us to his household.
God sets the terms: God is the one who sets the terms of this relationship. He tells us in advance what he will do .. and makes us free to respond to his terms. The terms God has set are these: Jesus died for our sins. In a financial metaphor, he has paid for them. There is no more debt. We have been forgiven. Our works cannot add anything to it. God has in Christ acted unilaterally, reconciling all things to himself (Colossians 1:20).
At its core, the new covenant is Jesus Christ.
and Jesus Christ "is" .. The Fullness of God become "man" .. and Jesus stated that HE came to "do the Father's Will" ..
So WHO IS THE "Father" ? .. How shall we "come to know Him" .. How shall we "call on Him"?
