God's Name

I always thought of God's name as "God." However, that's because I never thought  much about God. The word "god" is a title. There is nobody named god. Do you know anyone named god? In fact, there are many gods. Just think of Zeus and Apollo. Isn't there a scripture that refers to Satan as the god of this world? To many, Satan is god. Allah is god. These worldly gods all have unique names as well as titles, such as god or lord. But what about God, the Most High, the Heavenly Father? Does the Most High Heavenly God have a name?

I never read or heard anybody discuss this topic and therefore never thought about it. However, upon further reading, it is obvious that somebody must have thought about God's name. This is because great care was taken to remove, almost without exception, every mention of His name from the Bible scriptures we normally read.

This is not so in the Koran; Muslims know the name of their god: Allah. Buddists know the name of their god. Satanist know the name of their god. So it is strange indeed that Christians and the vast majority of Biblical scholars and adherents have never heard of their God's name--and most don't care enough to ask. Most of us accept New Testament pronouns and titles alone and never stopped to ask if God has a unique name. (The only exceptions are the name Yahweh and the word Halleluiah, where a remnant of God's name lingers.)

I remember reading, we can't say the actual name of God because it is too holy or too sacred. If so, then why do the scriptures say "call upon His name..." or "my name may be declared throughout all the earth?" We are told that the Most High wished the people to know His name.

If you know someone, isn't that the first thing you would want to know, their name? If someone is close to you, do you call them by their name, or do you say: Hey Mister, Hey You, Hey you with the white robe on? How can you be close to someone and not know their name? Calling God "God" is the same as calling your boss "Mister," or calling your wife "Woman."

The scriptures say that God made a contract or covenant with mankind. You are owed something, but you also owe something. If you can only identify the other party as "Mister," you are not likely to fulfill your part, or be fulfilled, in any bargain.

Devout Christians are all about having a "close personal relationship" with the Most High. That sincere attitude would fail on most lowly human beings if one's name is forgotten or mispronounced. How would the Most High feel if His unique name is of no special concern? (It's of special concern because it reflects His character. God's name defines God's character. Both are important, but of the two the character will always be primary.)
