God Nature Description Essays (1819 words) - Christology

God Nature Description So many people have a false interpretation of who God really is. Understanding who God really is can clear up a lot of false pretences (ideas) that so many people have about Him. According to the Bible, there are a number of different names and interpretations for who God truly is. WHO GOD REALLY IS! Yahweh *"Eternal God" most common name used for God in the Old Testament (6829 times) *The New Testament uses the word Lord "He who is" "He who is truly present" "Yahweh is not merely one god among many; he is the Creator and Ruler of heaven and earth, who is worthy of and demands the exclusive homage of his people " Yahweh Rapha *"I am" "...for I am the Lord, who heals you." Exodus 15:26 There have been countless times that God's healing power has been recorded in the Bible as well as on other accounts. Mostly commonly known should be when God sent his only Son to save the world from eternal damnation (Hell). I personally have seen instances and know people who God has delivered from sicknesses and other forms of "evil". When I was a freshman in high school my best friend's mother was diagnosed with three forms on cancer, she was not expected to live due to the late discovery and severity of the cancer. She is doing great, back to her job, and is in remission. Ways God Heals people! Yahweh Shalom: * "Yahweh is peace" Yahweh Shammah *"The Lord is There" " 35"The distance all around will be 18,000 cubits. "And the name of the city from that time on will be: THE LORD IS THERE." " Ezekiel 48:35 *Although this is referring to the twelve tribes Israel in the Old Testament, I think that this could have been a prophecy that God will continually be surrounding us. Yahweh Tsabbaoth *"Lord of Hosts" *"Lord Almighty" *In the New Testament Host is refer to as angles, which could be seen as protection, guidance during tough times, and most importantly a source of encouragement during times of sickness or pain. Yahweh Tsidkenu *"Yahweh our righteousness" "5"The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will raise up to DavidA a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land. 6In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be called: The LORD Our Righteousness. " Jeremiah 23:5-6 *In this text I think that God is talking about healing the people that he once banished from the land, by returning them to retake what was once theirs. Yahweh Yireh *"Yahweh will provide" *God said that he would provide for all of our needs. This means if we are sick we will be healed, but what really needs to be understood is that healing does not always mean that life is the answer. Sometimes our needs and our wants get completely mixed up. El Olam *"God the everlasting One" *"God of Eternity" *God was here in the beginning and he will be here in the end. God has healed throughout time and will continue to heal as long as we seek his name. El Roi *"God who sees me" *El Roi is with me at all times and is my protector. *God sees every move that we make and do not make. He sees when we are sad and when we are happy. He also sees when we are sick and when we are healthy. Most importantly he knows when to heal us, comfort us, give us space, listen to us, and so other things because he is continually looking over us. El Shaddai *"God the Mountain" *"God the Rock" *"God the Provider" *El Shaddai provides for all my needs, He shields from danger, and has given me shelter. *When I get stress and weighed down with the stress of life I like to go up to the mountain and try to clear my mind. I do not think that healing has to always be physical, I think God can heal in many different ways whether it be physical, mental, social, or spiritual. Elohin *name similar to Yahweh used over 40 times in Job as a way to refer to God, without using His name Yahweh or Adonay "Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob," Psalms 114:7 Knowing God!
