So many people have a false interpretation of who God really is. Understandingwho God really is can clear up a lot of false pretences (ideas) that so manypeople have about Him. According to the Bible, there are a number of differentnames and interpretations for who God truly is. WHO GOD REALLY IS! Yahweh*Eternal God most common name used for God in the Old Testament (6829times) *The New Testament uses the word Lord He who is He who is trulypresent Yahweh is not merely one god among many; he is the Creator andRuler of heaven and earth, who is worthy of and demands the exclusive homage ofhis people Yahweh Rapha *I am for I am the Lord, who healsyou.
Exodus 15:26 There have been countless times that Gods healing powerhas been recorded in the Bible as well as on other accounts. Mostly commonlyknown should be when God sent his only Son to save the world from eternaldamnation (Hell). I personally have seen instances and know people who God hasdelivered from sicknesses and other forms of evil.
When I was a freshmanin high school my best friends mother was diagnosed with three forms oncancer, she was not expected to live due to the late discovery and severity ofthe cancer. She is doing great, back to her job, and is in remission. Ways GodHeals people! Yahweh Shalom: * Yahweh is peace Yahweh Shammah *The Lordis There 35″The distance all around will be 18,000 cubits. “Andthe name of the city from that time on will be: THE LORD IS THERE.” Ezekiel 48:35 *Although this is referring to the twelve tribes Israel in the OldTestament, I think that this could have been a prophecy that God willcontinually be surrounding us. Yahweh Tsabbaoth *Lord of Hosts *LordAlmighty *In the New Testament Host is refer to as angles, which could beseen as protection, guidance during tough times, and most importantly a sourceof encouragement during times of sickness or pain. Yahweh Tsidkenu *Yahwehour righteousness 5″The days are coming,” declares the LORD,”when I will raise up to DavidA a righteous Branch, a King who will reignwisely and do what is just and right in the land. 6In his days Judah will besaved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will becalled: The LORD Our Righteousness. Jeremiah 23:5-6 *In this text I thinkthat God is talking about healing the people that he once banished from theland, by returning them to retake what was once theirs. Yahweh Yireh *Yahwehwill provide *God said that he would provide for all of our needs. This meansif we are sick we will be healed, but what really needs to be understood is thathealing does not always mean that life is the answer. Sometimes our needs andour wants get completely mixed up. El Olam *God the everlasting One*God of Eternity *God was here in the beginning and he will be here in theend. God has healed throughout time and will continue to heal as long as we seekhis name. El Roi *God who sees me *El Roi is with me at all times and ismy protector. *God sees every move that we make and do not make. He sees when weare sad and when we are happy. He also sees when we are sick and when we arehealthy. Most importantly he knows when to heal us, comfort us, give us space,listen to us, and so other things because he is continually looking over us. ElShaddai *God the Mountain *God the Rock *God the Provider *ElShaddai provides for all my needs, He shields from danger, and has given meshelter. *When I get stress and weighed down with the stress of life I like togo up to the mountain and try to clear my mind. I do not think that healing hasto always be physical, I think God can heal in many different ways whether it bephysical, mental, social, or spiritual. Elohin *name similar to Yahweh used over40 times in Job as a way to refer to God, without using His name Yahweh orAdonay Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of theGod of Jacob, Psalms 114:7 Knowing God! To have a complete understanding ofGod the Father, it is beneficial to Understand who God the Son is. These areverses are where Jesus describes who He is and why His Father sent Him here. Allof these references come from the Gospel book of John: *6:35 35Then Jesusdeclared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry,and he who believes in me will never be thirsty Here Jesus tells us if wefollow him with all of our hearts, we will need nothing more, he will provideall that we need. The problem here is that some people do not understand thatwith believing you need to live the life of a believer. Praying daily that Godwill continue to work in your life and the lives of others. Reading the Word ofGod which will help you understand who he is and will help you to make some ofthe right choices in life. Attending church regularly and surrounding yourselfwith people that will help you grow in the Lord is very important because weneed interaction with others. Other Christians who can lift us up in times ofneed and can support us when we need them to. Now the Bible does not say thatyou need to do any of these things, but I think that they will all help greatly.
Just like in a sport you need to practice to get better, to become closer to Godyou need to do things that will help you grow closer to him. *8:12 12WhenJesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light oflife.” This passage lets us know that Jesus will help us through thehard times, and He will direct us in the paths that we should walk in. WhenJesus is going through the wilderness Satan tempted him three times because hewas weak and at a venerable stage. Jesus did not give in these temptations, butwe continually do fall into these types of temptations. This is where Jesus ishere to guide us and give us strength. *9:5 5While I am in the world, I amthe light of the world.” As long as Jesus is, still in the world thereis still hope for the world. The word hope here is referring to something thatwe are looking forward to. I believe that when Jesus returns for the second timeto bring his people home the place that we call home will be Hell on Earthas the saying says. If God were to remove his presence from the earth not one ofus would want to go on living. The anarchy and complete destruction that wouldbe going on would devastate any person who has an ounce of morals. *10:7-97Therefore Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, I am the gate forthe sheep. 8All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheepdid not listen to them. 9I am the gate; whoever enters through me will besaved.A He will come in and go out, and find pasture. Jesus is telling ushere that He is here for anyone, and all we have to do is come to him. God hasgiven every person a choice to have eternal life or eternal death. To haveeternal life we must come to the Son of God, Jesus who waiting for us to do so.
However, we must make that choice, it is no ones responsibility except our own.
*10:11,14 11″I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down hislife for the sheep. 14″I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and mysheep know me Jesus lay down his life for us like that of a true shepherd.
Jesus knows each on of us that have come in to the kingdom of God, just like weshould know him. Although, Jesus allows us to wonder so that we might learn hasstill given his life for us. He has given us the choice and he will not force usto do anything, all that we do we do because we chose to do it. It is so amazingthat God would send his son to save us from the sins of the world, and thenallow his son to give his life for everyone on the earth. *11:25 25Jesus saidto her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me willlive, even though he dies; Jesus died and rose again and as long as webelieve this, we can be accepted into the kingdom of God. The word resurrectionmeans to rise from the dead and that is just what he did. *14:6 6Jesusanswered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to theFather except through me. Jesus informs us here that the only way we can getto God in heaven is through Him (Jesus). Heaven is where al that believe in Godwill end up while in commune with him. Coming into the Kingdom is a free choice,but we have to submit ourselves to Him before we can come in. To come into theKingdom of God is to surrender all that we have and all that we are, so thatnothing comes between our relationship with God. It is hard to put God first ifyou have not surrendered all unto Him. *15:1,5 151″I am the true vine,and my Father is the gardener. 5″I am the vine; you are the branches. Ifa man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you cando nothing. Jesus is our main source of life, with him we can do all things,apart from him we can do absolutely nothing. Apart from Jesus, we are damned tohell and I personally can not think of anything worse than that. Yes, we canstill function in life but ultimately we will end up in the pit of the abyss(Hell). God is all that can be imagined and then some more. However, onlysomeone as selfless (unselfish) as God who sent His Son Jesus Christ to thisearth to save the world from eternal death while continually beginningpersecuted. The things that Jesus had to put up with for the good that he wasdoing is just unspeakable. Whipped, beaten, spat upon, made fun of, and probablythe worst was being betrayed by one of his own disciples. This is just some ofthe persecution that Jesus had to suffer. Jesus is personal and provides foreveryone differently from the next person. Who do you say He is.
