Beloved Names of God ....Jehovah

Beloved Names of God


That men may know that thou,
whose name alone is JEHOVAH,
 art the most high over all the earth.
Psalm 83:18 KJV
  • Name of God the Father
  • "Jehovah" is referred to seven times in the KJV( including three place names).
  • The name Jehovah is a translation of the tetragrammaton (a word with four consonants and no vowels) 'YHWH" The name may originally have been pronounced as Yahweh.
Jehovah is the personal name of God. In the Bible it is used adoringly and with great honor. 
There is no record of Jesus ever using the name Jehovah-- and for good reason. Scholars have suggested that had He uttered that name in the presence of other Jews, especially the Pharisees and Sadducces, He would have been subjected to extreme punishment. As God's Son, Jesus knew when He would be arrested He chose His words carefully Instead of Jehovah, Jesus emphasized God the Father. As John wrote, "but as many as received him(Jesus), to them gave he power to become the sons of God(the Father, even to them that believe on his name" (John 1:12 KJV).
Have you ever been introduced to someone and two seconds later forgotten his name? Or, someone talks to you and later you have trouble remembering the gist of the conversation. God, the great Jehovah, isn't like that. He heard every cry of His oppressed people in Egypt. e hears, and remembers, every word of prayer we utter00 and then He responds as only an eternal, compassionate God can. Jehovah's arm is still stretched out to save us.
