Dog_Tag_Champion[1] “Give to the LORD the glory due God’s name. Bow down before the LORD’S holy splendor!” Psalm 29:2

In our culture, personal names have little meaning, a point made by John Dunbar who found meaning in life as “Dances with Wolves.” We communicate who we are using names, such as cousin, friend, co-worker, neighbor, etc.

In the Bible, names describe God’s non-communicable attributes such as He is all-knowing, everywhere present, all-powerful, etc. God’s names help to explain His character, and all God’s names are infinitely meaningful because He personifies there meaning perfectly.

The Psalmist commands us to give to God the glory or respect that is due His name, and from Psalm 29 his names are the Strong Faithful Ones, I AM that I AM or the One who was, is, and is to come, and Holy.

Unfortunately, our English translations do not make it easy to recognize the names of God; in future Blogs I hope to bring attention to specific names of God, and their biblical meaning.

Names are meaningful, and to us who have been redeemed by the blood of God’s Son, they should be very important, as they aid us in giving Him glory! 

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
