Day 77

Public Recognition

"Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, today let it be known that You are God in Israel and I am Your servant, and that at Your word I have done all these things. Answer me, Lord! Answer me so that this people will know that You, Yahweh, are God and that You have turned their hearts back."

Then Yahweh's fire fell and consumed the burnt offering, the wood, the stones, and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. When all the people saw it, they fell facedown and said, "Yahweh, He is God! Yahweh, He is God!"

1Kings 18:36-39 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

And, the people cried out that Yahweh is God.

A very refreshing acknowledgment... yet one that few can proclaim in our day for... few know The Name of our God.

What could most say? Something like, "The LORD... his is God!" Except that the word LORD is of course a title and not a name at all. A few might say that Jesus is God... but that leads to a triune discussion... that often leads to confusion... and is not the name of GOD anyway... Jesus is the Greek name for YahShua... not the Father God.

Some might say that Jehovah is God's name... without ever having a clue as to what the name Jehovah might mean.

My earnest prayer and desire is that when one has finished these brief studies that each and every one will be able to boldly declare that Yahweh is God... with understanding.
