The Names of God part 1
Text: Psalms 83:18
 18 That they may know that You, whose name alone is the Lord,
Are the Most High over all the earth.

  What is in a name? 
To grasp a better even growing understanding of God, one must try to learn the different names of God. The text and content of each Passage in scripture becomes much easier to make application if the names of God are applied.
 Let us begin our study today;

Yahweh / Jehovah
This is the most used name for God in all of scripture over 6,500 times.
 Just what does it mean?

I.“The Self Existent One”
Exodus 3:14 
 14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ ”

 He is and always will be! Just what does this name emphasis?

II.God’s Holiness 
Isaiah 6:3
3 And one cried to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!”

 Isaiah 57:15  
15 For thus says the High and Lofty One
Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
“I dwell in the high and holy place,
With him who has a contrite and humble spirit,
To revive the spirit of the humble,
And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

1 Samuel 2:2
2 “No one is holy like the Lord,
For there is none besides You,
Nor is there any rock like our God.

III.God’s Hatred of Sin
Proverbs 16:16 – 19
 16 How much better to get wisdom than gold!
And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.
17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil;
He who keeps his way preserves his soul.
18 Pride goes before destruction,
And a haughty spirit before a fall.
19 Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly,
Than to divide the spoil with the proud.

IV.God’s Love of the Sinner
Romans 5:8 
8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 John 3:16
 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Conclusion – Are you in love with God today?
 Does that matter?
 We will see just why this is so important over the next few weeks

The Names of God
part one
The Names of God – Part 2

Text: Psalm 21:13 
13 Be exalted, O Lord, in Your own strength!
We will sing and praise Your power.

 God –“The Creator and Sustainer of the universe”
 This definition was given to me many years ago. To me it is fine but there is more to God than this definition. Also I admit I am inadequate to define and even comprehend our God, but I can by faith embrace Him. 
Last week we looked at Gods most common Name, Jehovah.
Today God’s Important name, Elohim. 
Let us study this together:  

Elohim – used about 2,000 times in scripture
Means “Strong God, God to fear”
 How is this name presented in Scripture?

I.The Strong God
A.Job 9:4 
4 God is wise in heart and mighty in strength.
Who has hardened himself against Him and prospered?

B.Job 9:19
 19 If it is a matter of strength, indeed He is strong;
And if of justice, who will appoint my day in court?

C.Psalm 21:13 
13 Be exalted, O Lord, in Your own strength!
We will sing and praise Your power.

D.The All Powerful One (God)

The power and the glory,
The victory and the majesty;
For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours;
Yours is the kingdom, O Lord,
And You are exalted as head over all.

II.The Powerful Judge
A.Psalm 50:6
 6 Let the heavens declare His righteousness,
For God Himself is Judge. Selah

The Names of God

Genesis 15:2 
2 But Abram said, “Lord God, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?”

 God –“the creator and sustainer of the universe”.
We have looked together in our study of the names of God.
 The names Jehovah / Yahweh and Elohim. 
Today is the name Adonai. 
Let’s us learn and make application together

Adonai – “Master / servant” this definition broken down further 
“Master” – complete authority
“Servant” – to rank one’s self under / yield
Used nearly 450 times in scripture this name is so important as we can
make such personal application as we better understand.

A.Psalm 68:19-20
 19 Blessed be the Lord,
Who daily loads us with benefits,
The God of our salvation! Selah

And to God the Lord belong escapes from death.

B.Master who feeds and pardons

II.The God of Salvation

A.Isaiah 12:2
 2 Behold, God is my salvation,
I will trust and not be afraid;
‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song;
He also has become my salvation.’ ”

B.As our Lord He gives
C.Security, Strength and Song = Salvation!

III.The God Who Demands our Praise
A.Isaiah 42:8
 8 I am the Lord, that is My name;
And My glory I will not give to another,
Nor My praise to carved images.

B.The Lord does not share allegiance
C.The Lord does not franchise His Glory
