Week # 3 Connecting with God
Why do you suppose that God introduces Himself as “I am that I am”?
When God declares that He is the God of your fathers the God of Abraham, The God of Isaac and the God of Jacob what does that mean for us?
What do the following names tell us about God?
JEHOVAH* Name for God formed by adding the vowels of the Hebrew word Adonai to the consonants of the Hebrew divine name, YHWH. Out of their respect for God and their fear of defiling his name, the postexilic Jews refused to pronounce the divine name when reading Scripture.
JEHOVAH-JIREH—Jehovah will see; i.e., will provide the name given by Abraham to the scene of his offering up the ram which was caught in the thicket on Mount Moriah. The expression used in Gen. 22:14, “in the mount of the Lord it shall be seen,” has been regarded as equivalent to the saying, “Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity.”
JEHOVAH-NISSI—Jehovah my banner, the title given by Moses to the altar which he erected on the hill on the top of which he stood with uplifted hands while Israel prevailed over their enemies the Amalekites (Ex. 17:15).
JEHOVAH-SHALOM—Jehovah send peace, the name which Gideon gave to the altar he erected on the spot at Ophrah where the angel appeared to him (Judg. 6:24).
JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH—Jehovah is there, the symbolical title given by Ezekiel to Jerusalem,
which was seen by him in vision (Ezek. 48:35). It was a type of the gospel Church.
JEHOVAH-TSIDKENU—Jehovah our righteousness, rendered in the Authorized Version, “The LORD our righteousness,” a title given to the Messiah (Jer. 23:6, marg.), and also to Jerusalem (33:16, marg.).
Jah (yah), a shortened, archaic form of the sacred name of God (KJV, Ps. 68:4). It is also found in theophoric names, as Jeremiah, Isaiah, where the person’s name contains the divine name.
