Does God HAVE a NAME?

Now is that a stupid question or could it even be a really STUPID question? I say this because the name of God or the subject of the name(s) of God get’s more, so called, Christians bent out of shape than any other Biblical topic that I know of. Gnat straining and camel swallowing doesn’t even come near to this storm in teacup subject.

I also say this because I have recently gone head to head on social media with a Judaising mongrel dog wretch who obsesses about this very issue. In fact he was so bent out of shape that I had to block him for his own good, that is, before he had a stroke or a heart attack, such was his unhinged, unbalanced emotional and fanatical attachment to this non-issue. Now don’t get me wrong here for it is important to know the name(s) of God or, better, to KNOW which God we are refering to when we say God or whether it’s the GODHEAD of God with God as in the beginning (Please note that the Godhead is a Duality of two distinct Spiritual Beings not a Trinity nor a Mono-god):

Genesis 1:1 (KJV) In the beginning God (H430 the Hebrew name Elohim – plural) created the heaven and the earth. (Brackets mine)

OK so straight away in the FIRST VERSE of the Holy Scriptures we are told a name of God – some might say it’s the name of the Godhead for we are dealing with the Hebrew name Elohim which is the plural of the singular Hebrew word Eloah. And from Strong’s Concordance we get:

God – H430 – elohiym – el-o-heem’ – Plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God[head]; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative: – angels, X exceeding, God (gods) (-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty. (Square brackets mine)

This means we are not dealing with one God and we have the Hebrew name ELOHIM. We then we get:

Genesis 1:26 (KJV) And God H430 (The Hebrew name Elohim – plural) said, LET US make man in OUR IMAGE, after OUR LIKENESS: (Emphasis and brackets mine)

Now believe it or not, some numb skulls interpret this verse as a singular God speaking to the angels which is utter nonsense as angels cannot create and were never created themselves by God to be creators. So let’s get this golden nugget of Truth firmly set in our minds and from Strong’s once more:

Angels – H4397 – mal’âk – mal-awk’ – From an unused root meaning to despatch as a deputy; a messenger; specifically of God, that is, an angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher): – ambassador, angel, king, messenger.

There we have it, angels are primarily messengers, NOT creators and nowhere in Scripture does it say that angels were ever creators.

So as an early sum up we now have one name of God – “Elohim” and the first name mentioned in the Holy Scriptures and because of this fact should this name take pre-eminence over any other names? We shall see.

Right, what other names do we have in the Holy Scriptures? This name:

Genesis 2:4 (KJV) These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that The LORD God made the earth and the heavens. (Emphasis mine)

What have we got here? for this is the first verse in the Holy Scriptures where we find the name or Title: “The LORD God” so who is this LORD God? To answer that I will copy and paste another verse:

Genesis 2:16 (KJV) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of The Garden thou mayest freely eat: (Emphasis mine)

Here we can plainly see that this “LORD God” communicated with Adam – the man. So what? I hear you say. Ah but this piece of information is crucial in identifying this “LORD God” who also has a different Hebrew name and from Strong’s once more:

LORD – H3068 – yehôvâh – yeh-ho-vaw’ – From H1961; (the) self Existent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: – Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.

God – H430 – elohiym – el-o-heem’ – Plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God[head]; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative: – angels, X exceeding, God (gods) (-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty. (Square brackets mine)

Again, what have we got here? for this God who is still Elohim – plural has another name – a second name, to accompany His first name – God. This means we have Yehovah God or Jehovah God which, as we can see, also means The Self-Existent or The Eternal.

Moreover we now need to know who this Yehovah God is and I have already revealed that He spoke to Adam and gave him certain commands. So if we now go straight to the New Testament we will discover who this Yehovah God is:

John 5:37 (KJV) And The Father Himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His shape. (Emphasis mine)

There we have it from Yashua Messiah’s very lips. Up until that point in time in the first century no one had ever seen or heard The Father – so who spoke and commanded Adam? Answer: Yehovah God, and who was this Yehovah God? Answer: Yashua Messiah as God before He became flesh – The I AM who spoke to Moses and the Melchisedek who spoke with Abraham.

Here are some more names of God:

Yehovah God (ELOHIM) who became Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ or Joshua Anointed) is The Way and there is no other way for He is THE WAY, THE LIFE, THE TRUTH, THE LIGHT, THE I AM, THE ALPHA AND OMEGA, THE WORD or THE MIND, THE SON OF MAN, THE SECOND ADAM, THE COMFORTER, THE ADVOCATE, THE ETERNAL HIGH PRIEST, THE KING OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (Justice) THE KING OF PEACE (SALEM).

However, this is only half of the story for here are some of his unhinged comments:

“You don’t need the bible? It seems you need it more than anyone I’ve ever talked to. Why won’t you read us Psalms 83:18? Satan got your tongue?”

First of all I did not say to him that I did not need The Bible, I said that in this instance I did not need the OT or the Old Covenant (his satanic perversions of what I had said). Here, too, we can see the focus of his obsession – one verse of Old Covenant Holy Scripture in Psalm 83 after I had explained to him that it was Old Covenant, but that Truth didn’t register in his mind at all. He then followed it with this:

“Psalms 83:18 MAY PEOPLE KNOW THAT YOU WHOSE NAME IS “JEHOVAH”, YOU ALONE ARE THE MOST HIGH OVER ALL THE EARTH That’s Jehovah, YHWH in Hebrew. You are afraid of his name, because you are the embodiment of Satan himself, and Satan cannot stand his name. You are evil through and through…..”

These blind guides are buried in the Old Testament and cannot see the New Testament. In fact they cannot see any further than the ends of their noses. However, I did not push him further as it would have been a waste of my time, but it is quite obvious that he does not see Yashua Messiah (Jesus Christ) as the Yahovah God of the Old Testament or that when we mention His Name, that is, Yashua Messiah or Jesus Christ we are then directly referring to the Yahovah God of the Old Testament and thereby SAYING HIS NAME!! There we are – simples, but too simples for him.

Brother Charles in Yashua Messiah’s NAME!!
