The name of the Lord

Mark 12:35-37, New King James Version ( The Holy Bible, New King James Version Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc. ,NKJV)
35 Then Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple, “How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the Son of David? 36 For David himself said by the Holy Spirit:
(Referencing Psalms 110:1) ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”’ 37 Therefore David himself calls Him ‘Lord’; how is He then his Son?” And the common people heard Him gladly.
Isaiah 44:6, 45:22, (NKJV)
“Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last;
Besides Me there is no God.

45:22 “Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.
Revelation 1:8, 17/18, 5:12, 21:6, 22:13, 16, (NKJV)
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,”[a] says the Lord,[b] “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. 18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.


5:12 saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
21:6 And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.

 22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
Colossians 1:15-20, (NKJV)
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.
John 1:1-5, 16, 30 (NKJV)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.

30 This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.’

Exodus 3:15, (NKJV)

15 Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’

Isaiah 63:16, (NKJV)

16 Doubtless You are our Father, Though Abraham was ignorant of us,
And Israel does not acknowledge us. You, O Lord, are our Father;
Our Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name.

My Comments: Through out the Word of God the Holy Bible we find many names given to God and we find names God Himself has given Himself. Though all names have meaning to the people who give them, or who receive them no names are more meaningful than the names of God.
He calls Himself the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, The Alpha and the Omega and the I AM. He is the Lamb of God, the Morning Star, and many more and He is Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Lord and God. He is our Creator, our Savior, our Shelter, our Redeemer and Father, He is the Son of God the God of Abraham, Jacob (Israel) and Isaac, and He will come again to take those who believe and follow Him to be with Him for Eternity.
How can He be all and more? He is God. He created us. He was before time, space and was not created like we are created though we as humans are created in His image. If He could create everything how can we doubt Him and what He can and plans to do for us? I can not doubt Him. I trust and have faith in all He has said in His word will come to pass and that calling on His name, confessing my sins and trusting in Him I am saved and will be with Him for Eternity. I encourage you loved ones to delve into His Word and feed of His Word, search His Word for the Truth of His Word and call on the name of Jesus the Lamb of God, confess your sins and trust Him who redeemed you and waits for you to call on Him to be your Savior so you too may live with Him one day. He will change you, He will grow you and He will fill you with His peace that passes understanding. There is no other name under heaven that can save only the name of Jesus the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, the Alpha and the Omega.
Abba Father, unto You do I commit all who read Your Word and call on the name of Your Son, Jesus. There are many Father who think they can come to You by other ways yet Your Word is infallible and You have shown in Your Word that non can come to You except through Your Son Jesus the Christ. So knowing this Abba I ask You to open all their hearts to Your Word and Your Love that You sent in the person of Your Son who was fully God and fully Man to be our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ.
Thank You Jesus, You who are the Beginning and the End, for coming to Earth, being born of a women in a stable, suffering and dieing so we may live, taking our sins upon Yourself, dieing for three days and raising from the dead that we might believe You and follow You and be Yours.
Holy Spirit, thank You for descending and coming into us to teach, guide and strengthen us in the Word and knowledge and understanding of our Creator God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
In Jesus name I pray in union with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
