Who Is God?
What is the name of God?
The old testament bible texts were mainly written in Biblical Hebrew.
There are very few notable exceptions such as the books of Daniel and Ezra
which were written in Biblical Aramaic. The new testament was written in Greek.
Jehovah or dʒɪˈhəʊvə is a form of the Hebrew name of God.
We say a form because God’s name was considered too holy to be called in the Old Testament.
Jehovah is the personal Hebrew name of God, revealed to Moses during the unconsumed burning bush incident on Mount Horeb recorded in Exodus 3:1-16
Jehovah means “I am”. In other words, God’s name “I am” reveals that in Him we can find all that we need.
In the new testament, Hebrews 11:6 says that
“he that comes to God must believe that HE IS, and that HE IS a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”
Who Is God? Part 1
Throughout the Old and New Testaments, God progressively reveals more and more about who He is through the names and attributes given. Listen to the following video that will progressive reveal who God is by His manes and attributes.
In these names we begin to see the revelation of the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 8:6, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Isaiah 9:6-7, John 1:14, John 14:6
Who Is God? Part 2
God gave His people, the Hebrew, a language that drew imagery that would further reveal His nature and purpose.
The names of people and places in each incident in the Bible has a meaning that provides additional understanding, guidance and the revelation of the mystery of the outworking of God’s redemptive plan for humanity.
And so, you will never be left alone. Amen
