The Name of God

The Name of God is the manifestation of His gracious character, covenant relationship, and glorious perfections.
Look at it as revealed to Moses’ heart, and sounded in his ears, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity arid transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty” (Exodus 34:6-7).
The Name of God is the unfolding of His love, grace, mercy, pity, and compassion in the person, work, life, and obedience of’ Jesus.
God says of Him, “My Name is in Him” (Exodus 23:21).
This means that all the fullness of God dwells and abides in Him. In fact, it declares Him to be co-essential, co-equal, and co-eternal with the Father and with the Holy Ghost.
He is the expression of the Father’s love to His covenant people. He is the Wisdom of God – the “the Only Wise God” (I Corinthians 1:24 and Jude, verse 25).
He is the Salvation of God – for as we read in Acts 4:12, “there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”
