(From the Introduction to The Hebrew God Who Has No Name, just published.)
There is a prophetic context and timing to restoring God’s Name. We are living in the day of the rise of Islam. The name of the god of Islam is shouted every time a suicide bomber attacks innocent civilians. Although presidents and media pretend we all worship the same god, it is a lie from the pit of hell. The God of the Bible is a Father who gave His Son, Jesus, to die in our place, for our sins. The god of Islam is not a father, and demands that his followers give their sons to die for his evil cause. You will see a stark contrast between the God of Israel and the god of Islam when you start using Yehovah’s Name.
This distinction is obscured without understanding the personal names involved. This was seen in the political realm where the Obama administration for eight years refused to name the terrorist enemy as radical Islam. The resulting confusion effectively hamstrung our defensive and offensive efforts to defeat the Islamist threat. Names matter. If we should name our enemy, how much more should we know the Name of Yehovah God, our Creator and Protector?
Furthermore, why would God’s first commandment warn us about “other gods” if we all worship the same God? Please seriously consider the importance of using the personal Name of Yehovah, the living God of the Bible.
My salvation testimony for many years was meeting Jesus as “my own personal savior”. Now, in recent years, I have also come to know Yehovah as “my personal Father” in a deeper, more intimate way. That is my desire for you as well.
Here is Yeshua (Jesus) in His own words declaring this intimacy with the Father for each of us. He also declares the link between the Father’s Name and His love in us.
“…that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me… And I have declared to them Your Name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” John 17:21, 26
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the restoration of Israel.
