THE ONE TRUE NAME OF GOD


Scriptural evidence proves there is only One Name for God and that all other alleged Names for God are only titles


Jehovah God said concerning His Name "Jehovah" in Exodus 3:15 "This is my name unto all generations . . ." Since God cannot lie it is clear that the Name of Jehovah will always be the one and only true name for God. There are many extensions of the name of Jehovah that God has revealed himself in. Yet all of these extensions of the divine name always begin with "Jehovah." It is necessary to call the One True God by His true name to distinguish the One True God from the many false Lords and Gods. The apostle Paul confirms in 1 Corinthians 8:5, ". . . there be many that are called gods . . . as there be gods many, and lords many . . ." Titles such as Elohim and El are not names at all. They were common titles used for pagan deities such as the Philistine god Dagon and the Canaanite god Ashtoreth. God even called Moses a god (Elohim) unto Pharoah. Therefore, God's true name cannot be called God (God simply means "Supreme") for there are many false Gods who claim this same title. Nor can God's name be called "LORD" or "Father," or "Son," or "Holy Spirit," or "Christ," or "Word," or "Holy One," or "Eternal," or "Creator," or "Adonai," etc. These are not names but terms or titles used to describe God's manifold functions and attributes. Since many pagan deities as well as mere mortals also hold some of these titles, it is essential that we both know and utilize the one true name of our God. Jehovah's prophets plainly declared that God's true people would know His Name: "Therefore my people SHALL KNOW MY NAME." (Isaiah 52:6) "They SHALL KNOW THAT MY NAME IS JEHOVAH." (Jeremiah 16:21)


THE IDENTITY OF JESUS IS REVEALED THROUGH HIS NAME

FACT: THE NEW TESTAMENT OPENS AND CLOSES WITH THE DECLARATION OF THE DEITY OF CHRIST.


Matthew 1:23 informs us that the name of Jesus shall be called "EMMANUEL" meaning "GOD WITH US."


Rev. 22:6,16,20 calls Jesus "THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY OF THE HOLY PROPHETS."


FACT: THE NAME OF JESUS LITERALLY MEANS "JEHOVAH SAVES"


This is why the angel declared, "You shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins."


Although many Jews may have had this name, no Jewish man could ever claim that his name was given by an angel of the Lord. Thus his name revealed his true identity as "God manifest in the flesh." 1 Timothy 3:16


FACT: THE NAME OF JESUS IS APPLIED TO JEHOVAH


Jer. 23:5,6 "A righteous branch, and a King shall reign . . . and this is His Name whereby He shall be called, The LORD (JEHOVAH) our righteousness." Note: Every time we see the word "LORD" in scripture it is a substitute for the one divine name of God.


FACT: THE NAME OF JESUS IS THE NAME OF THE FATHER

Isaiah 9:6 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father,


The Prince of Peace."

If the name of Jesus can be called the name of the Mighty God and the name of the Everlasting Father then his name must be the divine name of God the Father Himself.



FACT: JESUS COMMANDED HIS DISCIPLES TO BAPTIZE IN A SINGLE NAME.


Matthew 28:19 "Go you therefore . . . baptizing them in THE NAME of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." The words, "IN THE NAME OF" clearly point to one name, not three names.



FACT: THE FATHER IS NOT A NAME IT IS A TITLE

FACT: THE SON IS NOT A NAME IT IS A TITLE

FACT: THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT A NAME IT IS A TITLE


Trinitarians allege that the titles Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are three separate names for an alleged three person Deity. This is an absurd belief, since there are many fathers and sons in our world today. No father or Son in his right mind could allege that his legitimate name was "Father" or "Son." Nor could a father or son sign his name on a check or legal document as "Father" or "Son." Can you imagine trying to sign a check with the title "Father" or "Son" as your name? Can you imagine Mary having a Son and calling his name Son? This would be ludicrous. The angel clearly gave us the name of the Son: "You shall call his name Jesus (JEHOVAH SAVES) for he shall save his people from their sins."


The divine name of Jehovah is used over 5,500 times throughout scripture. This is significant because 1 Corinthians 8:5 declares that there are many false lords and false gods: "There be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many)." Therefore the divine name of Jehovah was repeatedly used numerous times throughout scripture to distinguish the One True God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob from the many false lords and gods. Hence, it is essential to know the one divine name of God in order to identify which God or Lord we are talking about. Many Pagan Deities were called "Lords and Gods." For instance, the Philistine God Dagon was called "Elohim" just as Jehovah was called "Elohim." Therefore it is essential that Christians know the name of their God in order to distinguish Him from the many Pagan Deities.


God informed Moses in Exodus 3:15 that the name of Jehovah would be the name of the one true God "forever" and "unto all generations." This includes our generation.
