Do you know God’s Name?
I received a lot of responses and most of them were “different.” Their answers seem to reveal God has many names. Everyone shared “The Name” they use for Him, but is it His “Name,” or is it only a title? The question arises, “Is it important for us to know God’s Real Name?” Yes, No, Maybe?
Hopefully, I intrigued you enough from part one of this article, so at the least, you are experimenting a little bit with rolling the Name Yahweh around in your mouth to find out what it feels like to say the Personal Name of God.
If not, give me another shot… Take a look at the list below and see if one of these statements applies to you and justifies why you don’t think knowing or saying the Real Name of God – Yahweh is important for you.
In continuing to address responses of why someone does not want to call our God (Elohim), by His Personal Name, Yahweh, some people said:
“He knows who I mean, and it doesn’t matter what I choose to call Him”
I have not been able to find any statement expressed or implied in the Bible where we are given the right to “rename” our Heavenly Father. Even in our culture, to bestow a name is the sole prerogative of a superior, as when a parent names his child and as when Adam named the animals under his dominion.
