Why the names of God increase your faith

Morning guys,

Reading a book I got yesterday on the names of God. First chapter starts with the name Elohim. I’m not a student of Hebrew and I know there are a few on this list so they can jump there as they please. But lemme share what struck me according to the authors writeup. Taken from Genesis chapter 1.

The History of Creation
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness;

Heres something to increase your faith. Something that should transform you, when you stand before Him on the real, and are being changed from glory to glory as you behold who God really is.

1) The root word El is plural. So when it says lets us make man in “Our” image and according to “Our” likeness….here we go now get ready for it. If there is anything good that you see of believe in, in all the trinity that is the Father (the Final Word, the Husband, the Reconciler, the Origin, the Daddy) and the Son (Biggup JC! Christ, the Saviour, the Sacrifice, the Fighter, the Judge, the Advocate, the High Priest, the Catalyst, the Quickener) and the Holy Spirit (the Source, the Guide, the Comforter, the Interpretor,)…if there is any good you can find in any of them, it is in THAT image that you were made. You were made in the image of ALL of them. In the LIKENESS of the full trinity. You can’t pray? But the Holy Spirit can pray! You don’t think or feel you can understand God? But the Holy Spirit knows the mind of God! You feel you don’t have compassion or you think you need to be more kind or gentle or have more love? But Jesus gave up everything, and loved from the bottm of His heart and it would take  a thousand thousand eternities to discover how deep and how wide His love is! You don’t think you can make the first move to reconcile a broken relationship? But the Father was in Christ reconciling Himself to a world that was His enemy? You don’t think you can live right be right with God and do right? But GOD, the FATHER, the SON and the SPIRIT are all right!

And here’s the place you’re heart is supposed to be beating so hard and racing like crazy. Are you ready to receive it? YOU ARE JUST LIKE THEM. Whats stopping you? Whats holding me back? Why am I not perfect in mercy. Beautiful in love. Wise in justice. Gentle in compassion!… I’m glad I got this book. Here’s the kicker. I was made in their image. Ephesians 2:10Ephesians 2:10

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

2) The meaning of the word now. The meaning of it! It means…wait for it! TOTALLY POWERFUL. TOTALLY MIGHTY…. TOTALLY SOVERIGN… TOTALLY STRONG… TOTALLY CREATIVE! Now put those two meanings into the word. And think of this. What was the Holy Spirit doing hovering over the formless waters and void… Getting ready His TOTAL CREATIVITY. And so THEY spoke and this happens and that comes out of the ground and that light switched on and that water gave forth all the oceanic stuff you see on national geographic and discovery channel. BY TALKING! Imagine all that power?! Where inanimate objects had to obey God and be! Can you see why the 4 day dead body of Lazarus had no choice but to respond to God. Rotting flesh heard the voice of its maker and by His transforming power and completely well and healed man came out of the grave! Not only was Lazarus raised but when he got up he wasn’t sick anymore! We forget that. God performed several miracles. They warned Christ, “the tomb will smell” …. Do you find any record of smelliness after Lazarus comes out? NOPE. Jesus not healed and resurrected Lazarus He hooked up some spring glade freshness to boot. You see what it means to be TOTALLY POWERFUL. The only reason God (Jesus) didn’t PRE-untie Lazarus is JC wanted the crowd to untie and 4-day deadman with their own hands and fail to smell death and pull down the cloth and look in the hopeless eyes of God. Now hears the kicker. When God says let Us make man in our image and likeness. He took that TOTALNESS …. MIGHT….POWER…. STRENGTH….CREATIVITY and KNELT down in the dust and created the most accurate most complete most closely matching most anatomically correct most finely detailed most fearfully and wonderfully made VERSION of HIMSELF in you and me. Do you know if we unwrapped the genetic material in a single human cell and pulled out into a straight line, it could circulate the entire earth several times?! Do you know that the brain of a bumblebee has the brain capacity equivalent to 5 network cray super computers? What about your brain?

6 And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.

Guys, people, ladies and gentlemen, kings and queens..recognize that God respects His own creation because He knows whats what! When He puts His mind to something He doesn’t play! That is the same God who created this new covenant we are in called the gospel or good news or righteous accredited. No deposit no hidden fees. Believe in WHO God really is and WHAT God has done. And I tell you the truth, you (I) won’t have to do a single thing to be good Christians. We receive we are empowered and we are transformed. As Jesus said sometimes ….this is a hard teaching…”if you can…receive it”.

Go and be blessed
