THURSDAY POTPOURRI #7

WHILE THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, HE
HAS MANY NAMES FOR MANY REASONS

Want to know some names for God for perhaps your prayer time, your study time, or your teaching time? I have listed for you 25 names for God, in Hebrew, from the Old Testament. I included the meanings in English and Scripture references to them. They are worth looking into and studying. Look at what circumstance the person or people were going through when they used the name. I've heard people, even today, pray using some of the many names for God, when their circumstance or that name for God fit whatever situation or thing that they were praying about.

In Hebrew
Adonai-Jehovah (The Lord our Sovereign-Isaiah)
El-Elyon (The Lord Most High-Deut 26:19)
El-Olam (The Everlasting God-Gen 21:33)
El-Shaddai (The God Who is Sufficient for the Needs of His people-Gen 17:1,2 Job)
Jehovah-Elohim (The Eternal Creator-Gen 2:4, Gen 1)
Jehovah-Jireh (The Lord our Provider-Gen 22:14)

Jehovah-Tsidkenu (The Lord our Righteousness-Jer 23:5)
Jehovah-Mekaddishkem (The Lord our Sanctifier-Lev 20:8)
Jehovah-Sabaoth (The Lord of Hosts-Isaiah 1:24)
Jehovah-Shammah (The Lord is Present-Ezek 48:35)
Jehovah-Rohi (The Lord our Shepherd-Psalm 23)
Jehovah-Hoseenu (The Lord our Maker)
Jehovah-Eloheenu (The Lord our God)
Abhir (Mighty One-Gen 49:24)
