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 Gods 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 friends 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! To have a complete understanding of God the Father, it is beneficial to Understand who God the Son is. These are verses are where Jesus describes who He is and why His Father sent Him here. All of these references come from the Gospel book of John: *6:35 “35Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty ” Here Jesus tells us if we follow him with all of our hearts, we will need nothing more, he will provide all that we need. The problem here is that some people do not understand that with believing you need to live the life of a believer.
Praying daily that God will continue to work in your life and the lives of others. Reading the Word of God which will help you understand who he is and will help you to make some of the right choices in life. Attending church regularly and surrounding yourself with people that will help you grow in the Lord is very important because we need interaction with others. Other Christians who can lift us up in times of need and can support us when we need them to. Now the Bible does not say that you need to do any of these things, but I think that they will all help greatly. Just like in a sport you need to practice to get better, to become closer to God you need to do things that will help you grow closer to him. *8:12 “12When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ” This passage lets us know that Jesus will help us through the hard times, and He will direct us in the paths that we should walk in. When Jesus is going through the wilderness Satan tempted him three times because he was weak and at a venerable stage. Jesus did not give in these temptations, but we continually do fall into these types of temptations. This is where Jesus is here to guide us and give us strength. *9:5 ” 5While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” ” As long as Jesus is, still in the world there is still hope for the world.
The word hope here is referring to something that we are looking forward to. I believe that when Jesus returns for the second time to bring his people home the place that we call home will be “Hell on Earth” as the saying says. If God were to remove his presence from the earth not one of us would want to go on living. The anarchy and complete destruction that would be going on would devastate any person who has an ounce of morals. *10:7-9 “7Therefore Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep. 8All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them.
9I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.A He will come in and go out, and find pasture. ” Jesus is telling us here that He is here for anyone, and all we have to do is come to him. God has given every person a choice to have eternal life or eternal death. To have eternal life we must come to the Son of God, Jesus who waiting for us to do so. However, we must make that choice, it is no ones responsibility except our own.
*10:11,14 “11”I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. ..14″I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me” Jesus lay down his life for us like that of a true shepherd. Jesus knows each on of us that have come in to the kingdom of God, just like we should know him. Although, Jesus allows us to wonder so that we might learn has still given his life for us. He has given us the choice and he will not force us to do anything, all that we do we do because we chose to do it.
It is so amazing that God would send his son to save us from the sins of the world, and then allow his son to give his life for everyone on the earth. *11:25 “25Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; ” Jesus died and rose again and as long as we believe this, we can be accepted into the kingdom of God. The word resurrection means to rise from the dead and that is just what he did. *14:6 “6Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
” Jesus informs us here that the only way we can get to God in heaven is through Him (Jesus). Heaven is where al that believe in God will end up while in commune with him. Coming into the Kingdom is a free choice, but we have to submit ourselves to Him before we can come in. To come into the Kingdom of God is to surrender all that we have and all that we are, so that nothing comes between our relationship with God. It is hard to put God first if you have not surrendered all unto Him.
*15:1,5 “151”I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. ..5″I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. ” Jesus is our main source of life, with him we can do all things, apart from him we can do absolutely nothing. Apart from Jesus, we are damned to hell and I personally can not think of anything worse than that.
Yes, we can still function in life but ultimately we will end up in the pit of the abyss (Hell). God is all that can be imagined and then some more. However, only someone as selfless (unselfish) as God who sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to save the world from eternal death while continually beginning persecuted. The things that Jesus had to put up with for the good that he was doing is just unspeakable. Whipped, beaten, spat upon, made fun of, and probably the worst was being betrayed by one of his own disciples.
This is just some of the persecution that Jesus had to suffer. Jesus is personal and provides for everyone differently from the next person. “Who do you say He is.”.
