What Names Does God Have? And What’s the Meaning of Them?

1.God’s Name: Jehovah

Exodus 3:15 states, “And God said moreover to Moses, Thus shall you say to the children of Israel, Jehovah, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you: this is My name for ever, and this is My memorial to all generations.

2. God’s Name: Jesus

Matthew 1:21 says, “And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.” Matthew 1:23 says, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” Philippians 2:9–11 says, “Why God also has 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.” It was recorded in the New Testament that God’s name was Jesus, and the name of Jehovah was no longer mentioned. At last the name Jesus spread to the ends of the earth. Then what’s the significance of the name Jesus? God says, “‘Jesus’ is Emmanuel, which means the sin offering that is full of love, full of compassion, and which redeems man. He did the work of the Age of Grace, and He represents the Age of Grace, and can only represent one part of the work of the management plan. … ‘Jesus’ represents the Age of Grace, and is the name of the God of all those who were redeemed during the Age of Grace. If man still longs for the arrival of Jesus the Savior during the last days, and still expects Him to arrive in the image He bore in Judea, then the entire six-thousand-year management plan would have stopped in the Age of Redemption, and could not have progressed any further. The last days, furthermore, would never arrive, and the age would never be brought to an end. This is because Jesus the Savior is only for the redemption and salvation of mankind. I took the name of Jesus only for the sake of all the sinners in the Age of Grace, but it is not the name by which I shall bring the whole of mankind to an end.” Clearly, Jesus is the name of the God of all those who were redeemed during the Age of Grace, and it represents the sin offering that is full of love, full of compassion, and redeems man. In the Age of Grace, all people honored the name of Jesus as a holy name. We prayed in the name of Jesus throughout the entire age. As long as we prayed in the name of the Lord Jesus, our illnesses would be cured and all our sins would be forgiven, and meanwhile, we could enjoy bountiful grace of God. God used the name Jesus to initiate the Age of Grace, put an end to the Age of Law and express His disposition of love and mercy. Jesus is the Lord God’s name which is above every name. It’s a testimony of God’s glory, a proof of our being saved by grace and the name God bestowed upon us to rely on to defeat Satan!

3. God’s Name: Almighty God

Let’s look at some prophecies. Revelation 1:8 says, “I am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, said the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 11:16–17 also says, “And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give You thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which are, and were, and are to come; because You have taken to You Your great power, and have reigned.” And Revelation 16:7 states, “And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.” Here “the Almighty” is mentioned in these prophecies. This shows that God’s new name in the last days will be the Almighty, that is, Almighty God. Then what significance will the new name hold?
