Remember this Name part 3

hourglass-full;init_[1] “But he replied, “Who has appointed you ruler and judge over us?” Exodus 2:14

After Moses took matters into his own hands and murdered an Egyptian in defense of his brethren, he was questioned by what authority he did this, or ‘who appointed you ruler.’ At that time he could give no answer, however, when commanded by God to return to Egypt and lead His people to freedom, he wanted a name by which he could answer any further questions to his authority. The name of authority is I AM or Yehovah.

“The name Yehovah is derived from the Hebrew verb, “Havah,” to be, or being. This word is almost exactly like the Hebrew verb, “Chavah,” to live, or life. One can readily see the connection between being and life. Thus when we read the name Yehovah or LORD in capital letters in our Bible we think in terms of Yehovah as the Being who is absolutely self-existent, the One who in Himself possesses essential life, permanent existence.

(Names of God, Nathan Stone, Moody Press, page 20)

The Hebrew verb meaning ‘to be’, or ‘being’ is Havah and it is possible that a composite word could be constructed from different forms of this verb as, Yehi – will be – future tense, Hovi – being – present tense, Havah – was – past tense. The composite word would then be Ye Ho vah.

The Christian is one who realizes that essential eternal life is a person, His name is the Lord Jesus Christ, and one day by His authority, He will judge the world!

“God has overlooked the times of ignorance, but now he demands that all people everywhere repent because he has established a day on which he will ‘judge the world with justice’ through a man he has appointed, and he has provided confirmation for all by raising him from the dead.” Acts 17:30-31

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.
