How Great Is Thy Name

The Psalmist writes, “Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, You who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens!”

Do we ever meditate on the name of God? Do we ever think about how much power is in the name of God? God has many names and each of His names tell about His greatness. 

Let’s start with Elohim which means God the Creator, Genesis 1:1. 

 John 1:1-4,14 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.  All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.  In Him was life, and the life was the Light of mankind.” And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us; and we saw His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” 

Yahweh  means I AM…I Am, I was, I will be, Exodus 3:14-15.

Hebrew 13: 8 says, “Messiah Yeshua  is the same yesterday and today, and forever.”

El Roi  means God sees me, Genesis 16:13-14.

John 1:47-49 says this, “Yeshua saw Nathanael coming to Him, and said of him, “Here is truly an Israelite, in whom there is no deceit!”  Nathanael said to Him, “How do You know me?” Yeshua answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.”  Nathanael answered Him, “Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel!”

El Shaddai means the all sufficient one, God Almighty…the God who supplies all our needs, Genesis 17:1-2.

Isaiah 9:6 tells us this about Yeshua, “For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”

El Olam which means, He who has no beginning and has no end… the Lord Eternal, Genesis 21:32-33.

1 John 1:1-2 says, “ [We are writing] about the Word of Life [in] Him Who existed from the beginning, Whom we have heard, Whom we have seen with our [own] eyes, Whom we have gazed upon [for ourselves] and have touched with our [own] hands.  And the Life [an aspect of His being] was revealed (made manifest, demonstrated), and we saw [as eyewitnesses] and are testifying to and declare to you the Life, the eternal Life [in Him] Who already existed with the Father and Who [actually] was made visible (was revealed) to us [His followers].”

Adoni means, Lord and Master, Psalm 16:2.

John 13:13 tells us, You call me Master and Lord: and you say well; for so I am.  If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.”

Yahweh Rapha means God is our Healer, Exodus 15:26

Isaiah 53:4-5 tells us this “However, it was our sicknesses that He Himself bore, and our pains that He carried; yet we ourselves assumed that He had been afflicted, struck down by God, and humiliated. But He was pierced for our offenses, He was crushed for our wrongdoings; the punishment for our well-being was laid upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.”

Yahweh Shalom means He is our peace, Judges 6:24.

Ephesians 2:14-16 tells us,  “For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the hostility, which is the Law composed of commandments expressed in ordinances, (one must become ceremonially Jewish to be saved) so that in Himself He might make the two one new person, in this way establishing peace;  and that He might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross ,by it having put to death the hostility.”

Yahweh Roi  means God is My shepherd, Psalm 23:1.

John 10:11-16 says this, “I am the Good Shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.  He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who is not the owner of the sheep, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf snatches them and scatters the flock.  He flees because he is a hired hand and does not care about the sheep.  I am the Good Shepherd, and I know My own, and My own know Me,  just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.  And I have other sheep that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will listen to My voice; and they will become one flock, with one shepherd.”

Basileus Basileon comes from the Greek meaning King of Kings referring to God Almighty. 1 Timothy 6:13-16

Revelation 19: 11-16 says,  “And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war.  His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many crowns; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself.  He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.  And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.  From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the winepress of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. 16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written: ‘KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”’

John 10: 29-30,38 “ Yeshua tells us this, I give them (My sheep) eternal life, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.  I and the Father are one.”

“But if I do them, (works) even though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I am in the Father.”

 John 14: 9 says this, Yeshua said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? The one who has seen Me has seen the Father.”

Here are ten names to consider when you come into God’s presence, and when you stand praying, believe in the power of His Name.

And Yeshua and only the name Yeshua means God’s Salvation.

Acts 4:12 says, “Salvation can be found in no one else. Throughout the whole world, no other name has been given among humans through which we must be saved.”

Yeshua Hamashiach: the Anointed Salvation of God

“Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth.

      Hello Constance…I am glad that you enjoyed the teaching. We use many versions of the Bible, but mainly the New American Standard, and at that with a copyright no later than the 1970’s if possible. Every time they republish a version of the Bible they make changes in the wording. God Bless You!
