My Father’s Name (Guess Blogger)

Today, we are looking and I might add with reverence and awe, some of the many names of God. He starts off in Genesis as Elohim, to show His strength and moves to Yahweh, Jehovah, and Adonai. He also uses El as an abbreviation. You may notice the plural of Elohim, the Trinity. Many words are added in the Old Testament to portray His forgiveness, closeness, strength and holiness. Elohay Yishi is the God of my salvation. He is definitely the I AM to Moses, and though some dispute the correct pronunciation, Jehovah or Yahweh, are the most common for YHVH, He ends up again as Father, Abba, as Jesus is seated with Him in Revelation.

He revealed His personality through His name, just like we do. Most people know me as Rebecca, but to others, it’s always Becky, yet, I am a writer, daughter, friend. You get the idea. we are said to wear many hats in the figurative, so do we have many names or titles, and while some may not think that we ever lose ourselves or our way, we definitely need to know who we are in Christ, who the father mad us to be.

God, to me, anyway, rolled all His names up into one, Jesus. He sent Him to redeem a fallen creation, He was one with Jesus, and He was the embodiment of God’s love. Jesus also has a lot of names, they both are the Great I Am, and the Alpha and Omega in Greek, and the Alef Tav in Hebrew. The letter tav in an older version looks like a cross. His name is above all of them and He has all authority.

So God is,

El Roi, the God who sees.

Jehovah Shammah, the God who is here.

Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals.

Jehovah Jireh, the provider.

Jehovah Nissi, our banner or victory, is love love over us.

El Gibor, a mighty God.

El Elyon, the Lord Most High.

El Shaddai, the many breasted one, nurturing and loving.

Jehovah Shaloam, God is our peace.

El Qanna, the jealous God. His jealousy isn’t like ours, sinful, He is just wanting the best for us and to spend time with us.

I could give you so many more, but please enjoy the video. And there are many lists if you care to study further. Rebecca Jones / pexels

God Cares For You!

1 Peter 5.png

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may life you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.          1 Peter 5:6-7

Remember God when you lie in bed, think of him through the watches of the night. When you are wakeful during the night, thoughts can fly at you from all directions. Unless you take charge of them, you are likely to become anxious. Your best strategy is to think about the Lord during your night watches. Start communicating with him about whatever is on your mind. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. God is taking care of you my friend. This makes it possible for you to relax and rejoice in the shadow of his wings.

When you remember him during the night, think about who God really is, He is the “Great I Am,”, the Alpha and Omega. Ponder him perfections: His love, joy and peace. Rejoice in his majesty, wisdom, grace and mercy. Find comfort in his names: Shepherd, Savior, Immanuel, Prince of Peace. Be awed by his power and glory, for he is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Thus you worship him and enjoy His presence. These thoughts of him will clear your mind, helping you see things from his perspective and refresh your entire being.

Thankfulness

James 1.pngEvery good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change life shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first fruits of all he created.   James 1:17-18

This week we will be celebrating Thanksgiving here in America are we can take the time to remember the history behind the first Thanksgiving celebrate with the Pilgrims and Indians years ago. However, as you think of that time we learn in school do you also take the time to celebrate the many blessings that comes from our Heavenly Father, our Creator, the “Great I Am” I truly believe that too many times we as humans take for granted our blessings that we do have. Take the time to take a walk to see all the beauty that our land has to offer, the beauty that God has created for all of to enjoy. Everything that we have, everything that we own truly are God’s bless to all of his children. Try to think for a moment just imagine you standing in the presence of God, the “Great I Am” the Alpha and Omega, our Creator. His very name at times my soul shakes because I am unworthy to look into his eyes because I am a sinner. I am standing in His presence and I take my shoes off because I am standing on Holy Ground with My Great Redeemer. I can hardly breathe or simply say a word for I am totally amaze as I look into his eyes. His love for me his child, can I simply and honestly  put it into words within my heart, what I am truly feeling at this very moment at this very second.  I stand in the presence of the “Great I Am”, in His embrace, I loose all sense of time and all my problems I may have brought to him in this place as all but disappear for I am in His presence. Whenever I feel tempted to grumble I will simply go to you and simply talk it over with you. As I open up to you my Lord, give me your peace to calm my spirit down, so that all the cares of the world simply fall away. Help me to trust you by opening up to you each and everyday. I can’t wait until I become so discourage I just need to come to you with all of my concerns. As I talk it over with you, I will remember to thank you for all that you have done, for all the prayers that have been answered and the ones that will be answer in your time. My gratitude will provide a helpful framework for the things that concerns me. As you and I talk about everything, I think of looking into your face with all of its beauty and amazing light and my worries simply disappear forever. When I spend this time with you my Lord I will come away with joy and peace spending the time with you and this world that I have come to know can never rob me of that anymore.

Who’s Your Dad?

Hebrews 10.pngThe Apostle Paul wrote in the book of Hebrews 10:32-37  Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering. Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. you suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions. So do not throw away your confidence, it will be richly rewarded. You need to perseveres so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For, in just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.

I know as a Christian woman things never seems easy for us and at times we may say is it all worth it in the end! The way others judge us make fun of our live style not knowing at all who is our daddy. I am not saying the man who gave you life along with your mom and of course with the help of God, I am asking you who is your daddy? Why is it then that the ones of this world seem to have less of heartaches at times than people who is of the Christian faith? Let me tell you this, that you and I are in great company with the believers who went before us, their were the apostles, who all died for their beliefs with serving Christ, and even other believers of today, and even Jesus himself was persecuted because he love us all and he was a man without sin.  People around the world go to great lengths to make sure more will hear about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Who is this man call the Christ let me tell you, He is the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last. He is and always will be, the Great I Am.  Jesus is the Bread of Life, The Light of the World, He is the Gate to keep true harm away. He is the Good Shepherd, The Resurrection and the Life, He is the Way and the Truth and the Life, Jesus is the True Vine. He is the Creator of us all, He is Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit entwine into one. Jesus took our pain on the cross, and bore our suffering. Pierced for our iniquities, and by his stripes, and I am saying the whipping he took upon his back that broke his flesh for all of mankind. He was led like a lamb to be slaughter and he remind silent by oppression and judgement he was taken away. You need to understand this our world can’t understand him, armies can’t defeat him and death could not hold him. Even in the world of today the schools can’t explain to our children who this “Great I Am” is. The leaders of today, they can try to ignore him but somehow it will creep in once again who this Christ truly is. No matter what anyone could try to even do, you could never and I mean NEVER erase the name of Jesus Christ, for everyone the world thinks could destroy their will be at least one hundred more to continue to tell others the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

As for me I will continue to preach the words of Christ for all to hear: Never will he leave me and Never will he forsake me, when I am depress and feeling lonely his is my comforter, when my pain overwhelms me at times he will help carry my burdens, and he will walk by myside in my journey of life. His love never fails and no sins that I commit or any of my tomorrows will he stop loving me, when I call on His name, their is never a busy signal and he always answer me. Jesus is Yahweh, I Am that I Am, Jehovah, Immanuel, Jesus the Christ, Supreme Being, Creator, Elohim, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, El Roi, the One who sees You, Jehovah Nissi, the One Who Stands Guard Over You, Jehovah Shalom: The One Who Gives you Peace. All consuming fire: The God who is jealous for you. El Elyon: The One Who is the God Most High:, He is my Abba, Father! my daddy. There is nothing that can ever separate me from his love not death, nor life, either angles, nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creations will be able to separate me from the love I have in my Dad! “The Great I Am” He was and is to come into all of creations, and my love for him will never cease in this life or the life I will have in all of eternity when I see him face to face.

So who is Your Dad?
