The Significance of The Names Of God in Scripture

In our culture today, personal names are little more than labels to distinguish one person from another. Sometimes nicknames are chosen which tell something about a person, but even this is a poor reflection of the significance of names in The Bible.

Unfortunately, to many the Names God or Lord convey little more than designations of a Supreme Being. It says little to them about God’s Character, His Ways, and what God means to each of us as human beings. But in Scripture, The Names Of God are like miniature portraits and promises. In Scripture, a person’s name identified them and stood for something specific. This is especially true of God. Naming carried special significance. It was a sign of authority and power. This is evident in the fact that God revealed His Names to His people rather than allowing them to choose their names for Him. This is also seen in the fact that God often changed the names of His people: Abram to Abraham, Sarai to Sarah, Jacob to Israel.
