|IF YAHWEH WERE ASKED TODAY…
"What is Your Name?" What would He say? Remember, He says He changes NOT! Mal. 3:6. Therefore, wouldn't He give the same answer He gave Moses in Exodus 3:15? "And EL said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, YAHWEH, Elo-him of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this [is] my name for ever, and this [is] my memorial unto all gen-erations."
Most religionists who teach that just any old name will do, are ready to quote verses 13 and 14, but ALWAYS STOP BEFORE READING VERSE 15. He doesn't say "I AM" is His name; He says YAHWEH is His Memorial Name!
Some loudly insist that He has "many names." He says He has ONLY ONE.
Psalms 83:18 That [men] may know that thou, whose name alone [is] YAHWEH, [art] the most high over all the earth.
Isaiah 42:8 I [am] YAHWEH: that [is] my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
For you many?names advocates, please note that in EVERY INSTANCE IN THE ENTIRE BIBLE He or the writer always refers to His "NAME," singular. Never plural. Never "Names." He has many TITLES, but only ONE NAME! Yahshua the Messiah, in His prayer the night He was betrayed, mentioned "Thy Name" three times. Read John 17, verses 6, 12, and 26. Also see John 12:28.
Idols, on the other hand, DO have many names. See Hosea 2:16?17 and Zech. 13:2, for example. Hosea 2:16?17, And it shall be at that day, saith YAHWEH, that] thou shalt call me Ishi (Husband); and shalt call me no more Baali (Lord.) For I will take away the names of Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be remembered by their name. Zechariah 13:2 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith YAHWEH of hosts, [that] I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered:...." ***
