names of God

Remember this Name

clip image002 thumb1 Remember this Name! “And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shall you say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.” Exodus 3:15

In the KJ and NAS versions when you see LORD spelled with all capitals it is Yehovah in Hebrew, and when combined with God capital “G” small “od” it is Yehovah Elohim. God used His name Yehovah seventy-five hundred times in the bible.

It is important to know God’s name, if for no other reason than, God used it so many times. As Mathew Henry put it, “Whenever we have any thing to do with God, it is desirable to know, and our duty to consider, what his name is.”

“…this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial (or remembrance) unto all generations.” Many scholars believe Yehovah is the name God used to be His personal name. He told Moses when you bring me to mind, this is the name I want you to use. Many names describe the attributes and character of God, but He wants us to remember Him by Yehovah.

There is controversy about this name because as Strong’s concordance says, “the name is unpronounced except with the vowel pointings.” The name was considered so sacred and to keep it from being misused the Hebrews left out the vowel pointings. How we can know the proper personal name for God will be in my next Blog.

The Christian is one who shows God proper respect by knowing Him by His proper name!

About Joe Durso

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.
