Let’s Take It To The WORLD
If you are a regular listener to my show then you have heard me say that, I am not a Jehovah witness, but I do witness for Jehovah. I say this because I am always ask if I am a Jehovah witness or belong to the Jehovah witness organization. I say this because I want it made clear that I serve the same God but I do not belong to their organization. Sad to say but there are people that do not know that this is one of His names. They have gone to Church for years and seldom if at all here the name Jehovah spoken.
Then, their are others that know that His name is Jehovah, but do not use it because of the association. Another thing that is happening if you will listen closely you will hear most people referring to Jesus as God not Jehovah. They pray to Jesus and reference Him as their God. Some people think that the word God, or Lord is enough to say when addressing our Father, but listen to the rest of the study to see why I prefer the specific names and meanings and why Jehovah gave Himself these names, that matters.
The Trinity, Jehovah God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit all plays different roles in our lives yet remain on one accord. You will find in Psalm 113:3 which reads: From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’S name is to be praised. Many times in Scripture we are commanded to praise the NAME of the Lord.
Ps 8:1: O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
Ps 29:2– Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name;
Ps 7:17 I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.
Ps 66:2 reads – Sing forth the honor of his name: make his praise glorious.
Ps 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
Ps 103:1 A Psalm of David. Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Ps 135:3 Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.
Ps 145:21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
Ps 148:13 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
Why are we told to praise His Name? In Bible times a name was never just a label you hung on somebody to keep from confusing him with someone else. A name expressed the kind of person they were, or who they hoped to become. That’s why Jehovah sometimes changed a man’s name. He intended for the person’s character to be reflected in his name. So when He changed Simon to Peter, He said, in effect, “Don’t see yourself as wishy-washy. You are a rock, a stone, firmly attached to the foundation stone (which is Christ). Saul, “the asked for one” was humbled to Paul–“Little one” Jacob “the supplanter” became Israel “who strives with God” And then God Himself, gave Himself names that are really an extensions of Himself. His names reveal His nature and His character.
I am going to speak on some of the Names of Jehovah God, the only Living God. I will first focus on 4 general names He has given Himself and then later the compound names Jehovah has given himself. All these names are Hebrew words.
