The Different Names of God

Knowing the different Names of God will help us to understand and relate with Him better. When we relate right with God, we also live our lives right.

Jehovah: Comes from a verb which means “to exist, be” and commonly also known as Yahweh (YHWH). This, plus its usage, shows that this name stresses God as the independent and self-existent God of revelation and redemption (Ex. 3:12-14).

  1. man, I can’t believe you posted this.
    Praise God!

    Just last Sunday at church when singing Jehova Jireh in Thai, I felt like I should undertake a study of God’s names, to really try and understand more about God… instead of focusing just on the things about us.

    So thanks for that!
