The Names of GOD
"The LORD is My Shepherd"
The Caring Name of GOD:
Eight titles or descriptive phrases for GOD in Psalm 23 show HIM to be the Shepherd GOD who cares for all the needs of HIS sheep.
The GOD Who Supplies My Needs:
GOD is both the Strong One who is able to deliver, and the Tender One who nourishes us as a mother nurtures a child at her breast.
"Most High GOD"
Possessor of Heaven and Earth:
As "GOD Most High," the biblical GOD is great to the superlative degree. No wonder satan wants to usurp the power and authority of this highest of beings.
"The Everlasting GOD"
As Olam, GOD is the Everlasting One, available to HIS people throughout the ages.
"Secret Name of GOD"
As Alam, GOD remains a mystery and a secret to mere human minds.
The Strong Names of GOD:
In battle a Diving Warrior, in uncertainty a Divine Rock. GOD will support us with HIS strength, unless we insist on trusing in our own.
The Throne Name of GOD:
As a benevolent King, GOD establishes laws for the good of HIS subjects. Although we have an intimate relaitonship with HIM as Father, as King He deserves our total obedience.
"The LORD of Hosts"
The Militant name of GOD:
GOD is Commander of the Angels, the Hosts of Heaven. We need not fear, since He sends Guardian Angels to protect us from harm. And we can follow Him into battle knowing that victory is assured.
"The Lord / Master"
The Headship Name of GOD:
We not only serve GOD as a slave serves his master; we can also expect the Divine Master to provide us with the resources and substances we need to carry out His will.
The Strong Creator:
As Elohim, GOD is the one source of all there is. He is life, person, spirit, self-existent, one, unchangable and unlimited. And as the plural Elohim implies, GOD is three-in-one, The Trinity.
The Self-existent GOD:
Jehovah, or Jahweh, the personal name of GOD, points to His being eternal source of life- He who will be who He will be, whose existence depends on no other.
The Intimate Name for GOD:
The All-Powerful GOD of the Old Testement is the same GOD revealed by JESUS to be a loving Father. Through Christ we are invited not to cower before GOD in fear but to enter into an intimate family relationship with Him.
There are three primary names of GOD in the Old Testement; GOD (Elohim), LORD (Jehovah, or Yahweh), and LORD/Master (Adonai). Beyond these, GOD is called by over eighty other compound names or descriptive titles.
"The many descriptive titles and names
of GOD given in Scripture are like lightening flashes in a summer
night, revealing His nature and works."

I AM The LORD
I will show my greatness and my
holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of
many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.
In a time when God's people were in shambles physically and spiritually, He promises judgment - judgment on them and their oppressors.
But He also reveals why.
He will show His greatness and holiness so they will know Him, YAHWEH -- God of "his people" and also of all nations.
I would love for God to show His greatness and holiness in our day, wouldn't you?
To have God honored for who He is and what He has done would be marvelous.
May that day come quickly.
Father, as your flawed and mortal child, I do fear your bold revelation of yourself.
We are mortal and frail in comparison to God's blazing glory.
But I have confidence in my relationship with You through Jesus, and dear Father, I want you honored and Your name revered in my day.
I am tired of hearing Your name used in vain and Your glory profaned.
Exalt yourself before the nations!
Reveal your holy majesty so that everyone will know that You are the only true and living God!
In Jesus' name I pray.
C. H. Spurgeon
"Underneath are the everlasting arms."
God--the eternal God--is Himself our support at all times, and especially when we are sinking in deep trouble.
There are seasons when the Christian sinks very low in humiliation.
Under a deep sense of his great sinfulness, he is humbled before God till he scarcely knows how to pray, because he appears, in his own sight, so worthless.
Well, child of God, remember that when thou art at thy worst and lowest, yet "underneath" thee "are everlasting arms."
Sin may drag thee ever so low, but Christ's great atonement is still under all.
You may have descended into the deeps, but you cannot have fallen so low as "the uttermost"; and to the uttermost He saves.
Again, the Christian sometimes sinks very deeply in sore trial from without.
Every earthly prop is cut away. What then?
Still underneath him are "the everlasting arms."
He cannot fall so deep in distress and affliction but what the covenant grace of an ever-faithful God will still encircle him.
The Christian may be sinking under trouble from within through fierce conflict, but even then he cannot be brought so low as to be beyond thereach of the "everlasting arms"--they are underneath him; and, while thus sustained, all Satan's efforts to harm him avail nothing.
This assurance of support is a comfort to any weary but earnest worker in the service of God.
It implies a promise of strength for each day, grace for each need, and power for each duty.
And, further, when death comes, the promise shall still hold good.
When we stand in the midst of Jordan, we shall be able to say with David, "I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me."
We shall descend into the grave, but we shall go no lower, for the eternal arms prevent our further fall.
All through life, and at its close, we shall be upheld by the "everlasting arms"--arms that neither flag nor lose their strength, for "the everlasting God fainteth not, neither is weary."
