Comprehensive guide to the Names of God

The Biblical significance of name giving is that Adam could name creatures – and whatever that name is, is what it shall be for that creature – and man would have dominion over it. This is related to Isaiah 43:1, because God called people by name and declared them His own – God called them what man called them. Man was given power to name creatures including people, and therefore, God acknowledges such and calls people & creatures by name. I like the ability to name things, especially as a future father – I have the ability to give a name to him/her. I also like giving people nicknames, if I can come up with one. God calls me by name, and would probably call me by nickname if He wanted to.

A name can be prophetic based upon its meaning, especially when God appoints the name to someone. God promised Abram that he would have an heir (a son) coming from his own body, as we see in Genesis 15:4, “And, behold, the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.” Through Sarai’s impatience, Abram and Hagar produced a child.

Hagar fled away from them, after things blew up with Sarai, but Hagar was given a message to return back, and that Ishmael shall be born and have many descendants, as we see in Genesis 16:10-12: “And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”

We see that the descendants are increased (seed is multiplied), which is prophetic, because it seems like many Arabic people in the present day claim to be descendants all the way back to Ishmael – and call themselves Ishmaelites (a part of the Islamic religion & its Abrahamic roots).

Elohim

Elohim is the plural of the Hebrew word El, which means “might, strength, and power.” As the lesson states, El suggests the powerful support of a strong tree, unbending and able to withstand any test/storm. El gives power and strength to His people! Elohim intensifies the majesty and fullness of God’s power and might. It is believed by many theologians to be an indication of the divine Trinity.

The name Elohim was a foundational name, because the Hebrew people needed a revelation of Elohim in their hearts – planted deeply – to strengthen them, so they’re able to withstand temptations of the pagan world around them. We need the same within our hearts, a revelation of Him planted deeply, so we can be strengthened and able to withstand temptations of this world.

Elohim is derived from the Hebrew word Alah, which means, “to swear.” He stands in a covenant relationship, to which He has made an oath. Elohim can mean the Strong and Mighty One, and at the same time mean the One who is faithful to all of His covenants. We see in 1 Kings 8:23, “And he said, LORD God of Israel, there is no Elohim like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart.”

God was also known to keep His covenant and bring forth His purposes in His covenants with Noah and Abraham. Another Scripture reference, Genesis 17:7-8, “And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be Elohim unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their Elohim.”

God the Father is the Source of the Divine Nature, and He initiates and is the general director of the Godhead. John 5:20, “For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.”

God the Son is the manifestation of God and He is the Word of God, who spoke the worlds into existence and manifested the Father on the Earth in the Incarnation. He administrates the plans of God the Father. Ephesians 3:9, “And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.”

God the Holy Spirit is the energy of the Divine Nature, in whom the Trinity works. He broods over, breathes life into, empowers, and blows the wind of God. He carries out the plans of the Father and glorifies the Son, reveals the Truth, sanctifies, and convicts. Acts 1:8, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

In the Creation, the Godhead worked together in absolute unity, each within their own function, while overlapping roles. God the Father was the Source and Initiator of Creation, and worked through the Son and the Holy Spirit to bring about His Plans and order. The Son spoke forth the Words for Creation, and the Holy Spirit brooded over the void and darkness to bring the Creation into being. The Holy Spirit breathed life into man, and still breathes the life into those surrendered unto God through Faith in Jesus Christ.

The inhabitants in Canaan, for example, had a worldview that the universe was eternal, but the gods were finite. Also, that each of their many gods were responsible for a certain aspect of life – such as, sun gods, sea gods, fertility gods, moon gods, etc. All of these gods were distant and were only appeased with offerings and worship – having no interest in the individual lives of men. The Worldview they should have had, and which all of us need to have – is that we have an eternal God, whom is true in everything. We have finite creations, beginnings and endings. God works in His Creation and desires to be intimately involved and personally active in the lives of His own. He wasn’t just a god of a certain aspect of life, but a God of all aspects of life!

Elohim expresses universal creation, expanded beyond Israel to all of creation. Yahweh is particularly focused on His covenant love toward His People, Israel. We see Elohim in creation expressing covenant in Genesis 1:26-28 (edited to express Elohim), “And Elohim said, Let us make man (universal humanity) in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So Elohim created man (universal humanity) in his own image, in the image of Elohim created he him; male and female created he them. And Elohim blessed them, and Elohim said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” (which shows universal humanity inheriting characteristics of Elohim; ones of might, power, etc.).

We see Yahweh in the creation of Israel expressing covenant unto them in Isaiah 43:15 (for example), “I am Yahweh, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.” Therefore, there is no doubt of the promises unto Israel, and that God is willing and able to protect them.

El Elyon

Abram received by the Holy Spirit a fresh revelation of the character and nature of God through the introduction of the name “El Elyon,” which means “Most High God.” This name is connected with the fact that God possesses heaven and earth. He created everything, and it’s all His!

A. In his dealings with Melchizedek, he received from Melchizedek the blessing of God and gave back to God what had already come from God’s Hand. Therefore, in Abram’s response of the revelation, he gave tithes of the spoils of war to Melchizedek.

In his dealings with the King of Sodom, he was tested in his stewardship, for the King of Sodom tempted Abram to keep the spoils of war, but give him the people. However, in Abram’s fresh revelation of God, whom he knew was the Source – Abram kept up his good stewardship. He didn’t want anything that appeared to be from man instead of God, for God was his provider – not the King of Sodom, who wanted credit for making him rich.

B. For his future, he decided he would not partner with the King of Sodom, but rather partner with El Elyon. Instead of letting pride come his way through riches, he decided to follow the humble path and keep his hope in God!

Just like Abram put his trust in El Elyon, so did others, such as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego – whom were thrown into a fiery furnace, but kept their hope in God – who delivered them! Daniel was another who put his hope in El Elyon, and did not give up his faith, for when thrown into the Lion’s Den, came out unscathed, because El Elyon delivered him.

It was used so frequently in the Book of Daniel, because not only Daniel had a belief so strong in the Most High, but also that God was working in the life of Nebuchadnezzar. God was giving revelation to Nebuchadnezzar that He is the Most High God, who has the power to set up and remove kings. Through the situations, such as the Hebrew boys (Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego) being delivered, to Daniel also being delivered – God revealed Himself unto Nebuchadnezzar as the Most High!

When Nebuchadnezzar was finally humbled, he looked unto Heaven and blessed the name of El Elyon – giving Him praise and honor, for it is God’s dominion – not his own – that is everlasting and from generation to generation. Therefore, we don’t see El Elyon as most important in Daniel’s situations, but in Nebuchadnezzar’s situations, for it was God’s Will to reveal Himself unto Nebuchadnezzar – which gives us a good example of humility.

Isaiah 57:15, “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

God is the high and lofty One, which is a picture of “The Most High.” His name is holy, and not only lives in the Earthly realm, but also in the Heavenly realm – not in a worldly place, but a holy place. That holy place is the secret place of the Most High (as we see in Psalm 91:1), in whom we find refuge and strength.

El Shaddai

“El” is usually used for God – which means “might, power, or strength.” For Shaddai, “shad” means “breast,” and “dai” means “enough.” It reveals God as the many-breasted One who nourishes, supplies, and satisfies – similar to a nursing mother in care for her child.  He is the all-sufficiency for us!

Psalm 91:1, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of El Elyon shall abide under the shadow of Shaddai.”

This shows us that when we dwell within the heart of our Almighty, powerful God, we shall abide with Him and He shall provide all of our needs. He shall be our refuge and protection. His loving heart shall not overpower us, for He loves each of us and will protect our love and us in general!

Adonai

Characteristics of God in the name “Adonai” are Lord and Master. The characteristics in the Person of Jesus Christ would be that He is a faithful Shepherd to Israel; feeding the flock and tenderly caring for their young. Also, one that would willingly lay down His life for the sheep.

Slavery was a common thing in the world, and people that were conquered were usually slaves. It was the responsibility of the slave to submit and obey to the master; therefore, it was the master’s responsibility to provide the housing, food, clothing, and any other need for the slave. They were under authority of their lord and master – having obedience unto the master for anything the master needed.

This transferred over into the relationship with God, in the fact that people would view God as Lord and Master, and would be called to obey Him in service unto Him. God, as Master and Lord, would equip or provide for those who were to do His service – however, many didn’t trust Him to provide or equip them. But, through obedience and trust for the relationship between God and the servant, God’s purposes could be completed well.

Exodus 3 details the revelation from God to Moses in the burning bush – as He called Moses…for God knew the cries of His people, so He was sending Moses to Pharaoh. God promised provision, but Moses failed to trust Him to provide. Moses didn’t go when God said go, because he failed to trust Him to provide for him. Therefore, God was upset with Moses about this.

Genesis 15:8, “And he said, Lord GOD, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?” Here we see that Moses is asking for God’s confirmation on His provision, in hopes that he would more strongly believe that they should all inherit the land given and promised unto them from God. He was looking for a sign (as most of us seem to do when we seek confirmation), and therefore, after this, the Lord provided him with confirmation and more assistance to reinforce his faith and readiness to do His Good Work.

1 Samuel 14:10, “But if they say thus, Come up unto us; then we will go up: for the LORD hath delivered them into our hand: and this shall be a sign unto us.” Jonathan here, not having such assurance that he there will be success of this present invasion, desires a sign from God. God acknowledged this and showed him a sign. Through this sign, they were assured of His provision that the Lord delivered them unto their hands.

Yahweh

The meaning of Yahweh as we see here is “I AM that I AM,” or “The Holy One.” In the midst of the burning bush, Moses had an encounter with the Living God – and after Moses was instructed to go and do God’s Will for the situation in Egypt…Moses wanted to know who he was to say who sent him, with God answering “I AM THAT I AM.” (Exodus 3:13-14)

It shows that God possesses essential life and eternal existence, which continually moves forward and spans through every generation. He reveals more and more of Himself, as we get closer to the day when we shall see Him face-to-face.

Because Yahweh must judge sin, His name is connected to the sacrificial system and worship in the tabernacle and temple – for to Him were the sacrifices brought, and that worship was offered.

Yahweh Jireh

Abraham faced incredible challenge in his life, but with each challenge, his faith grew in the faithfulness of his covenant God. Abraham learned to trust God with his life and future – because God assured him of provision through Yahweh-Jireh, which means “Yahweh our Provider.”

Jehovah Shalom

At the time of Gideon, Israel was “greatly impoverished,” because the Midianites would swoop down upon Israel right at the time of harvest, destroy their crops, and steal their cattle. Gideon was fearful and therefore hid from them when they would come at harvest time. However, the Angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon suddenly, and said unto him that Yahweh was with him, and was called a mighty man of valor. Gideon begged questions, but was commanded to go and save Israel from the hand of the Midianites.

The Lord promised to give him strength, which would be made perfect in the time of weakness, as well as generally being with him. After this, he wanted confirmation that the Lord was speaking unto him, so confirmation was given and shalom was bid unto Gideon in Judges 6:21-23a. Therefore, he gathered a large army, which was narrowed down to 300 men. Then, God’s battle plan was set into place, and the victory was won against the vast armies of Amalek and Midian. Shalom came to Israel, and the land rested – for this was the short-term impact. The long-term impact was that there would be cycles of repentance, deliverance, invasion, rebellion, etc. Nevertheless, the answer is Jesus Christ, who is the hope for all humanity.

“Shalom” is the Hebrew word for “peace.” Many times, it can be represented as wholeness. It is translated 20 times in the Old Testament as “perfect.” The idea for shalom is: A. Wholeness in one’s relationship with God, B. Harmony of relationship based upon the completion of a transaction (not just a truce), and C. Expresses the deepest need and desire of the human heart – which is a need for contentment, freedom from guilt, and satisfaction with life itself.

The text in 1 Samuel 4:3 refer to the Lord out of Shiloh, which translates to Yahweh of Rest – and also the Lord was with the ark of the covenant. This relates to Isaiah 6:1-3 – where the Lord was with the angels – with the fact that the Lord was with the ark out of a place of rest, and gave them assurance of victory and that they can rest in Him. By seeing God with the ark, just like with the angels, it gives people confidence and assurance of salvation/victory.

Yahweh Sabaoth

Isaiah 6:1-3, “In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.”

This verse respects the holiness of God, by declaring the Lord of hosts as holy! To see Him high and lifted up with the seraphim, who cry out to one another declaring the Lord of hosts (Yahweh-Sabaoth) holy!

Yahweh Rohi

  • Seeker – one who searches for His flock. Searches for those that are lost, and bring again that which was driven away.
  • Deliverer – one who delivers His flock from out of all places of cloudy and dark days.
  • Gatherer – one who brings them out from the people and from the countries, and bring them to their own land. He gathers the lambs in His bosom.
  • Feeder – one who feeds them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers and in all the inhabited places of the country. He will feed them in a good pasture, in high mountains of Israel. Feed so to cause them to lie down (and rest).
  • Healer – binds up the broken, and strengthens those that are sick.
  • Leader – He gently leads those that are with young. He leads me beside the still waters. Leads us in the paths of righteousness for His names’ sake.
  • Restorer – one who restores our soul.
  • Comforter – one who walks with us, even in the valley of the shadow of death – so that we will not fear. His rod and staff comfort us. We have rest in His mercy and goodness.
  • Provider – provides us with plenty of provisions and comforts in the presence of enemies, anoint us so that our cup is running over (with immense provision). He provides goodness and mercy for us, which shall follow us for the rest of our lives. He provides so much, I shall not want. Assurance – We will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Yahweh Nakah

Yahweh-Nakah reveals, “Yahweh shall smite thee.” Yahweh punishes for sins is what is revealed. Many sources translate it to “Yahweh who disciplines.” This is a good point, because God is aimed – not at punishment – but at discipline/corrective judgment. He is hoping to deal with men in a corrective way to get them to stop their sinning and come to repentance. This characteristic is equal to all the other names of God, and therefore important – in the way that just as God is our healer, deliverer, savior, etc. – He also disciplines because He loves us too much to see us live in sin. I believe that God still disciplines, and does it in a loving way so that we learn from our failings. I believe God, as my Father, to discipline me so that I can learn from my mistakes or failings – and become closer to Him as a result.

More names:

  • Yahweh-Nissi – Exodus 17:15-16 – “The Lord is my banner”
  • Yahweh-Rapha – Exodus 15:25-27 – “The Lord who heals”
  • Yahweh-Mekaddishkem – Exodus 31:12-13 – “The Lord who sanctifies”
  • Yahweh-Shammah – Ezekiel 48:35 – “The Lord is there”
  • Yahweh-Tsidkanu – Jeremiah 23:5-6; 33:16 – “The Lord our righteousness”

Psalm 18 lists these names

  • Yahweh
  • Elohim
  • Yahweh-Chezeq (The Lord our Strength)
  • Yahweh-Cela (The Lord our Rock)
  • Yahweh-Matsuwd (The Lord our Fortress/High Tower)
  • Yahweh-Palat (The Lord our Deliverer)
  • Yahweh-Magen (The Lord our Shield/Buckler)

  • Yahweh-Tsidkenu (The Lord our Righteousness)
  • Yahweh-Chacad (The Lord: Merciful One)
  • Yahweh-Tamiym (The Lord: Perfect One)
  • Yahweh-Lamad (The Lord who Teaches)
  • Yahweh-Chay (The Lord who Lives/Living God)

Yahshua

Yahshua means, “Yahweh is Salvation.” Yahshua (Jesus) was the complete and perfect fulfillment of God’s Old Testament names. Yahshua is God manifest in the flesh. God wanted the New Covenant in place and did it through Yahshua, because Yahweh is Salvation – the full redemption of sin.

A. Hebrews 7:25 “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” This is from Yahweh-Tsidkenu, because through Jesus, God makes us righteous. Because of Jesus, we’re able to have access to the Father – because it’s Jesus that makes intercession for us. Why would God want to speak to unrighteous people? Therefore, there has to be one who makes us righteous, and that is Jesus. Therefore, Yahweh-Tsidkenu is fulfilled in Jesus Christ, because God makes us righteous through Him!

This also could be a picture of Yahweh-Rohi, because it shows intercession, which Jesus does, so that we may be shepherded & taken care of by God! It allows God to utilize the ultimate shepherd, Jesus Christ, who saves us, rescues us from sin, and brings us unto God – in which He makes intercession for us, that we may communicate with Him!

B. Philippians 3:8-9 “Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.” This is a picture of Yahweh-Tsidkenu, because we gain the excellent knowledge of Christ, and receive Him so that we may have righteousness through Him. Yahweh-Tsidkenu is fulfilled through Him, because we have Jesus Christ who makes us righteous before Him!

C. John 17:24 “Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.” I believe this is a picture of Yahweh-Jireh, because it depicts a provisional experience where Jesus gives Himself unto mankind so that they may behold His glory – the glory given unto Jesus Christ for to share unto us! By giving Himself unto mankind, He is fulfilling Yahweh-Jireh by providing His glory unto mankind so that they may become righteous before God and experience a relationship with Him!

D. Revelation 19:11, 15 “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.” This is a picture of Yahweh-Nakah, because God will bring corrective judgment, and righteousness shall be established on Earth and in the hearts of men for the glory of God!

E. Revelation 19:14 “And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.” I believe this is a picture of Yahweh-Sabaoth, because Scripture talks about armies of angels, as well as a white-linen army of His Righteous People. So, we see Jesus, the one who carries out the task as the Lord of Hosts, who lead us into the final battle – to which He speaks victory and finishes the judgment!

F. Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” I believe this is a picture of Yahweh-M’Kaddesh fulfilled through Jesus Christ, because invariably we die to self and submit our lives to Christ, so that it’s not I who lives but Christ that lives in me. So therefore, instead of living in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God – who loved me and gave Himself for me! He sanctifies us through His Spirit, and makes us holy through His Work on the Cross.

G. Acts 10:36 “The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all).” This is a picture of Yahweh-Shalom, the Lord our Peace, because God sent a message unto the children of Israel, to bring peace unto them through Jesus Christ. This is God fulfilling Yahweh-Peace through Jesus Christ.

Name Above all names

Isaiah 45:22-23, “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”

Philippians 2:9-11, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

The name above all names encompasses Jesus, for God chose His name, because He was glorified through His work on the Cross, and also through the fulfillment of each of the names of God. His name is literally glorified higher than any other name we know of in Earth, because He was the only perfect, righteous one that ever lived on Earth in human form. Everything He does is righteous, because He is part of God, who is perfect in every way – for He created perfection and shows us what perfection is and what it isn’t. Therefore, Jesus can only be the most perfect name we know of here on Earth, and He is the most righteous!
