God has a name!

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6

I just can't sit around any more and not tell people that some of their thinking if off the wall!

God is not , an it, or she, or whatever you are comfortable with!

God has a name a name so sacred that in the beginning that they would only call Him the Name!

God is Almighty, King of Kings, Lord of Lords!
So why all the bad stuff?
Maybe it will all remain a mystery to us till the end.
Maybe we can't understand it all right now with our limited minds.
Maybe this is just as God had planned it!
You just have to put your trust in God as He knows what He is doing, and that nothing is a Surprise to Him!

His name is not whatever, universal energy, cosmic consciousness, gaia, allah, krishna, budda, lakshmi, kuan-yin, rama, kali, shiva or any other name.

God is the Creator and ruler of the universe!

    Awesome! I have just since the first of the year started studying the names of God. It has been an enlightening experience. In my opinion you did leave out the most important name, and it is just my opinion. Awb was used by Jesus in the garden, the Greek translation is Abba. My translation is Papa God. I know you understand this. Thank you so much for sharing your hard work. I can hardly wait to dig into the names that I had not yet found. I do have a question. Do you know why King James (& NIV) usually translated his name LORD? Only 4 times did they translate it Jehovah. If it was a respect issue, were they not being disrespectful those 4 times? It looks like a lot of good Christians missed out on a closer walk with Jehovah because they did not get to understand more of his facets but I guess Jehovah knows what he is doing and was able to reach those people with his love anyway. Thanks Robert
