In the Old Testament, titles of the Most High were recorded upon His revelation to mankind. To be precise, to the Bnei Yisro’El, children of Israel, as representative of the human civilization. That is why we say God is the God of Israel because He chose this nation of people to make known His revelation. God is not an Israelite nor is God a Jew. The Creator reveals to man that He is very much in touch with this race of creatures called humans. God created the multiverses and the universe and all organic lifeforms, inorganic lifeforms and the matters. Obviously, the organic lifeforms include the plants, the creatures and humankind in that order. The Creator was very pleased with the original version of His own design. And we know it changed. And the inorganic lifeforms are the spiritual inhabitants of the ultra dimensions in human perspectives, dimensions that are mostly kept out of our reach for our protection. For one, the angels look frightening. Two, some of them, a third in tally fell from grace and they are in enmity with all things that God holds dear to Himself. To these we call the fallen. The irony today is, the person who prays for safety out and about, in a contradictory manner, would consult the occult and sleep with the devil. Call that deceived. Hell was designed originally to accommodate them for all eternity. The day that Elohim posted a guard at the gate of Gan Eden, mankind has been left with only one option on the table to get to the ultra dimensions. That gate is called The Way.
And He revealed to Moshe a wonderful revelation, what He can be called by humans. To a rebellious ruler, tell him that I AM (Ehyer) has sent His messenger. To the people that He was to form a covenant with, to take them in to be His people, tell the Bnei that YVHV has sent Moshe to them. At the burning bush on holy ground, Elohim replied that the 40 year-old Hebrew could tell Pharoah that I-AM has sent him to see him. Immediately He told Moshe to tell a separate audience another name:
YHVH, Elohim (Godhead) of their fathers (Avraham, Yitshaq and Ya’aqov) has sent Moshe to them. To the children of Israel (Bnei), this is the name of Elohim (Godhead) to remember for all generations. In Shem’ot (The names, Exodus), in the TS2009 translation using the Hebrew writing of יהוה
3 13 And Mosheh said to Elohim,
“See, when I come to the children of Yisra’ĕl and say to them, ‘The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His Name?’ what shall I say to them?” 14And Elohim said to Mosheh,
“I AM that which I AM.”
And He said,
“Thus you shall say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘I am has sent me to you.’ ”
15 And Elohim said further to Mosheh,
“Thus you are to say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Ya‛aqoḇ, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance to all generations.’
Therefore, from this narrative of the Most High God meeting with an individual from the tribes of Israel, for Moshe was from the tribe of Levi, son of Ya’aqov (Jacob), His name YVHV is known to all the children of Israel.
Later in subsequent centuries, YHVH continued to reveal Himself to chosen individuals from the 13 tribes the character of YHVH Elohim. Elohim is His title. YHVH is the prophetic name by which He was to be made known to save mankind. This name is the name that is to be passed on from one generation to the next generation, until the very last generation that will see His Coming, the Lord as the Son of Dawid, a fierce rewarder for both the just and the unjust. There will come a day when what we take for granted the Age of Grace will be over. That is why God says this is His name to remember to all generations.
These are some of the titles that YHVH came to be known by through the Torah and the Writings of the Tanakh. The Tanakh is the Hebrew body of Scriptures that is comprised of the Instructions (Torah, giving the “Ta”), the Prophets (Nevi’im, giving the “na”) and the Writings (Ketuv’im, completing the word with “kh”).
YHVH Shalom (The Lord Is Peace)
YHVH Tzevaoth (The Lord of Hosts/Armies)
YHVH Nissi (The Lord My Banner)
YHVH Rapha (The Lord That Heals)
YHVH Tsidkenu (The Lord Our Righteousness)
Eashoa declares, in Luke 24, God in the flesh speaking after His resurrection to two men who met Him,
“These are the words which I spoke unto you while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and in the Prophets and in the Psalms concerning Me.”
The Word in human form came and likewise, He gave His disciples and His audience, then and now, more revelation about Elohim in titles that only the Godhead is entitled to be called.
Enter Yokhanan Shliha, the Apostle John, the 20 year old young man that we came to know as John the Beloved when he was called by Eashoa by the sea. He was Yokhanan ben Zavdi (son of Zebedee), the youngest of the Twelve and the last Apostle to die, between 96 to 100 AD as a very old man having lived the most adventurous life arguably among men, the only one who was not martyred, and the one that was referenced by Eashoa that would see His kingdom come before he died. He received vision after vision alone in banishment on a desert island in the Aegean Sea off of Greece. He came off the island and completed the canon with his narrative of the Gospel in the New Testament. With what he was given to see about the future on Patmos his desert island, he recorded new revelation in his own account of the Gospel. In the Gospel according to John, seven additional titles point to the Most High, who came as the Redeemer of mankind. I shall list these qualities below, to His praise and glory.
Each title exalts Eashoa to be the Hope of man to live everlasting life.
As for the other name that YHVH gave Moshe, Eashoa demonstrated it pictorially from the pictograph font of Hebrew at the time of Moshe.
In that font the four letters look like this. Of course Moshe had no idea that this was a prophetic arrow to the fulfillment when the Word of God came.
Hebrew is an eastern language that one reads beginning from the right to the left. In pictograph, the name of God shows
Y, yod, an arm of a man, representing strength.
H, hey, a posture of a man holding up his two arms, as in behold, look!
W, waw, or V, vaw, a peg, a nail.
H, hey, a posture of a man holding up his two arms, as in behold, look!
And so He came, He revealed, He suffered and He died on the cross. As a substitute of the penalty of transgressions for humankind. He took my place for what I deserve as a payment for my rebellion as a creature. Eashoa thus saved me. He is my Savior.
On the third day from Passover, He rose from the dead!
Eashoa told Nakdimon (Nicodemus) in John 3
14 Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 so that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life!
Here is a promise from the Word about 600 years before He came, told to the Prophet Zechariah, which as promised He came to fulfill.
10 “Then I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication, when they will look toward Me whom they pierced. They will mourn for him as one mourns for an only son and grieve bitterly for him, as one grieves for a firstborn
So today if you care to tell another soul that YHVH has sent you, know that as in the life of Moshe, YHVH told him to speak the unspeakable, we have to tell others the Good News that Eashoa came to save. He is coming again as promised.
