Names of God (continuing study).

Exodus 31:13, New King James Version (NKJV)
The Holy Bible, New King James Version Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
13 “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you.
(My Note: Though Christians are not commanded to follow the Ten Commandments as the nation of Israel was, we are to lovingly follow them even though Christ Has paid the blood sacrifice for us because of our sin. Christ has given us two to follow because we love and we love God above all and others or neighbors because of His love for us. This verse was used to show you the “I Am.,” meaning Jehovah-Maccaddeshem which means “The Lord Thy Sanctifier.”)

Exodus 15:26, (NKJV)

26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”
(Note: this “I Am” is Jehovah-Rapha which means “the Lord our Healer.”)

Exodus 17:15, (NKJV)

15 And Moses built an altar and called its name, The-Lord-Is-My-Banner;[a]


  1. Exodus 17:15 Hebrew YHWH Nissi  (Note: The Jewish do not use vowels in the name of God because they deem it wrong. We know we may as we are adopted Sons and Daughters of our Abba Father so this is how we would write it. Jehovah-Nissi meaning “The Lord our Banner.”)

Exodus 3:14, (NKJV)

14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”

John 8:58, (NKJV)

58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”

John 14:6, (NKJV)

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

John 14:26, (NKJV)

26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

John 8:12, (NKJV)

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

1 Timothy 6:15, (NKJV)

15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords,

1 Timothy 1:17, (NKJV)

17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Isaiah 9:6, (NKJV)

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Romans 8:15, (NKJV)

15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”

Job 19:25, (NKJV)

25 For I know that my Redeemer lives, and He shall stand at last on the earth;

Revelation 22:13, (NKJV)

13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
My Comments: There is nothing I can add to the Word of God ever yet as God has laid on my heart to do this study I will attempt to make my comments. Please forgive me if I do not touch on all that you would think I should from these passages. Also, feel free to comment and add to the knowledge of the Bible and the verses we study I only ask that you keep to the study we are doing and the Word of God not folk lore or myth. God’s word is rich in meaning and His knowledge enriches us all.
I have a study sheet with the names of God on it and have been working from it. The names used today are evident in the verses though some are not and those I have placed the meanings in quick notes below the verses. I am not a Greek or Hebrew student so as with most of us I rely on the knowledge God has placed in others to impart here. I hope it encourages many of you to study deeper into the Scripture and the meaning of His names.
One thing of note is we serve the Living God the only True God who was from the Beginning, who is and ever shall be. Because He is Living His names are Living. I think I understand this from my Alaskan Native perspective this way. When I was born I was given a name, then because of things I did I was given Rebishka (Little Fish) from my Grandfather, then I grew up and people called me at different times in my life by different names (Springboard, Goldilocks, Smiley  and various versions of my first name). Even my last name changed as I married.
Now these are changes that many of us go through yet with Abba Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit there are names to do with what they did/do or attributes and some are given to us by them some by others who received from them certain gifts, names that tell us how they took care of us and still take care of us. Studying the Scripture tells us many of His names and His names tell us much of what He is to us, does for us and even His promises to us.
I love to pray with His names, especially the names that show so much about Him like “Abba Father, Beginning and the End, First and Last, Alpha and Omega, I Am, Holy Wind, Redeemer, God Almighty, Blessed and Holy Ruler, Counselor, Truth, Way, Light, Lord of Lords, Mighty God and Prince of Peace.” One could go on but for this study I believe this to be enough. I will endeavor to add more to this study as time goes on and interest is evident.
Abba Father, You have shown Yourself in Your Word and in Your names. Help us to understand all You say about Yourself in Your Word and in Your Holy names. Open our hearts to hear Your heart through the Holy Spirit who seeks to teach us about Your Son Jesus and Your truth.
Jesus Redeemer and Friend, create in us a new heart that seeks to know You more and desires all that You desire for us. You are Lord of Lords and true God of true God the Lord of Righteousness. Through You we come to Abba Father relying on Your Light to show us the Way.
Holy Spirit, Comforter, Spirit of God, Teacher, create in us a burning desire to know the Word, give us clear understanding of the Word and come Holy Wind to clean out of us all that separates us from the union Abba Father desires with all of His creation.
Thank You, Father, Son and Holy Spirit for this study and all of them You have placed on this site. May they all bring You glory and praise and be instruments to bring many to the knowledge and understanding and relationship all were created to have. In Jesus name in union with the Holy Spirit I pray, Amen.
