Look to the Rock
Isaiah 51:1 says “…look to the Rock from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were hewn.”
I was thinking about that verse and our discussions on names and I had an epiphany…. what do God’s names mean and what are they all?
So I went on a little hunt. Do you know that our English translation of the Bible is quite limited in understanding of His names. What I mean is that God’s names are so deep and rich yet in our language there is no comparrison to the original Hebrew.
Where we use “Lord” there are many many different versions of the name Jehovah (YHWH or simply the 4 letters) which is God’s covenant name or the name He promised. It means that he is the God who continually reveals himself to us. Add it to another name and it literally means he will reveal himself to be as such…. Example; there is Jehovah Raah, which means shepherd, Jehovah Nissi meaning banner or refuge and carries with it a hope that can’t be understood in just one word of the English language. Since Jehovah preceeds each of the names they literally mean, God who reveals himself to be our shepherd, or the God who will show us He is our hope!
I’m not doing all the work for you! 🙂 Find out for yourself who God want’s to reveal that He is for you today!
