What is the NAME of God?
As a new Christian, I'm reading the Bible through for the first time. I'm alarmed at how important his NAME was in the Old Testament and how I can't get a straight answer. Have we lost God's name? They tell me Yahweh is only a guess at the pronounciation. How do you think it is pronounced? I saw you discuss the names in one of your Hubs, but I wondered what name you think we should call God.
God does not have a name but names. He is the great "I Am" that is his state of being. He just be, the self existing one. No name can comprehend, classsify, qualify, identify all that He "is" . "I suppose if sin had not intered the world," says one... read more
he is called "I am" we can cry out "ABBA" which means Father or Daddy. All sufficient One, Master, Lord of Peace, (el shad-di')
All-Sufficient One, Lord God Almighty.In the Old Testament Adonai occurs 434 times. There are heavy uses of Adonai in Isaiah (e.g., Adonai Jehovah). It occurs 200 times in Ezekiel alone and appears 11 times in Daniel Chapter 9. Adonai is first used in Gen 15:2.
"Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory [is] above the earth and heaven." Psa 148:13
What you call Him is not as important as what is in your heart! Our Father, God of Creation, knows who you are talking to. Just keep on talking to Him and you will develop the name you are comfortable with. He will guide you. His name has not been lost, sadly only many of His people. God Bless You.
Your request for a such a hub is sound and shows a right heart, but don't get hung up on semantics. God's most important name is Father or even Daddy. The importance is in our relationship to the most loving Being there is.
God's many names are but facets of his infinite and eternal nature. My own dad was a fishmonger and poulterer, but I never addressed him as 'Fishmonger', I called him 'Dad'.
Knowing the names of God should be a desire born out of a deep longing to know more of him, not some technical theological exercise.
When Jesus was asked to show us his Father, he simply replied, 'If you've seen me, you've seen the Father'. On the other hand he castigated the scribes and Pharisees who despite searching the scriptures minutely failed to see their own God in their midst. Don't do as they did and 'strain at a gnat and swallow a camel'.
Paul wrote that the Father has given Jesus the name above every name. Read it in context and you understand that name is Yahweh, which is shared equally among the Trinity. But it is the God of the name and not the name of God that transforms lives because Yahweh is incorporated in Yeshua anyway.
My name is Allan and, although I am her husband, Allan is the name my wife uses to address me directly, even though 'husband' would be a perfectly proper and accurate name for her to use.
I may write on the difference between the Old and New Covenants because it is clear a lot of Christians are unclear of what the difference means. Suffice to say for now, God is not out to get you or hammer you for calling him by the 'wrong' name. Check out Isaiah 9 which tells us that Jesus is also known as 'Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace'.
What gives God the greatest pleasure in hearing you speak to him is not some technically perfect performance of a name you read in some theological book, but 'I love you Daddy'. If you can learn to say that and mean it, he won't care a jot for whatever else you call him.
God's is not called in one name. that has many names. muslims call allah along with rahim, rahman, hindus call Bhagaban, jews call jehobah.
Yahweh is God's actual name, his personal name. Sometimes it is said as Jehovah in English.
I don't really think it matters what her name is. God is God is God. Love her and know her.

I know that the holy trinity are all meant to be the same and one being. God is the father and the son and the holy spirit. But, taking into account, this was decided by a group of men hundreds of years after Jesus,...
