Names


Everybody has a name and every name means something. In the bible names have specific connotations. It is interesting how parents choose a name for their children. My 4 son’s names mean the innocent gift of God, the covenant with God, the joyful father and the healing power of God. They are specific according to God’s directions. My in-laws in Mexico named their children with Jesus and Mary’s names. It is important what you call your child. When Moses went to Mount Sinai and saw the burning bush, God spoke to him. Moses didn’t know who was talking and asked what is your name? God replied and said, My name is I Am that I Am. It is the name Jehovah. Jesus’ name is Jehovah is salvation. A name will always tell a story and many times define a person’s life. You should always be careful what you call your children. Some people have many names. All these names refer to who they are. Jesus is called Emmanuel, the bright Morning Star or the Pearl of great price. God says call unto Me and I will show you great and mighty things. He also says that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord of all. God highly exalted the name of Jesus above all others. It is a name that should be on our lips at all times. At the name of Jesus our world can change. All we have to do is call on His name. Names, it is interesting how they work and what they mean.
