Holy Week....what better time to search and know HIM more!
Several times in my life I have had opportunity to become more acquainted with the Names of God. Once on a huge lithograph where the names were strategically placed...over 100 in all. Another in a song made popular in Christian circles back in the 1990s. Yet another where we worship now in a painting done by a local artist. With those in mind and the yearning that always takes over during this most holy of times I offer to you some of the Names of God.
Immanuel, Jehovah, Yahweh, Adonai, Jehovah Rapha, Jehovah Jireh, Lord of Hosts, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Almighty God, Alpha, Omega, Beginning and the End, Good Shepherd, Mighty One of Israel, The Rock, Cornerstone, Father, God of Jacob, Majesty, Great Physician, Healer, Creator, I Am, Maker, God of gods, God of heaven, Lover of my soul, Redeemer, Savior, God of Israel, Living God, My Salvation, Holy One, Lifter of our heads, Potter, God of Abraham, Light, Truth, The Word, Is, Was, Is to come, Worthy, Lamb, Judge, Faithful and True, God of the spirits of the prophets, Elohim, One True God, Anointed One, Lord God, Son of Man, King of the Jews, Everlasting Rock, Everlasting God, Defender of the weak, Comforter, Deliverer, Strength, Strong Tower, Holy One of Jacob, God of Justice, Rabbi, Teacher, God who hides himself, The Way, The Truth, The Life, Hallowed, Bridegroom, Light of the World, Worthy, Resurrection, Risen King, True Vine, Vinedresser, Spirit of God, Helper, Spirit of Truth, Jesus of Nazareth, Righteous Father, Holy Father, Master, Rabboni, God of our salvation, Lord Your God, Abba Father.
I know there are many more, but it's almost midnight here and my mind is a blur. It is a great comfort for me to know that the God of the Universe (there's another one!!!) has all these names and more. If he is big enough to wear all these name tags, he's big enough!
