Studying The Names of God

Jehovah Go’el: The Lord, My Redeemer

–> As Our Kinsman-Redeemer, He paid our ransom in full so we would no longer be enslaved by sin. He willingly gave His Life and ordained His covenant with us for all eternity. We are so precious to Him.

Take time to marvel over His Amazing Love that has been poured out for all humanity. It is through Jesus that we are restored to God and to absolute freedom from the wages of sin, which is eternal death. He won the victory for us on the cross; thereby defeating death once and for all!

El Shaddai: Almighty/All-Sufficient God

–> He is Our Nourisher. Out of the abundance of His Love, He saturates our lives with bountiful blessings. He is more than enough for us. He is Our All!

El Hannora: The Awesome God

–> The word “awesome” originated in Him, but there is no word or language that can adequately describe Him who is unfathomable and indescribable. All who gaze upon Him are inspired in awe and reverence. He is Our Inspiration!

Gelah Raz: Revealer of Mysteries

–> He rewards the hunger of those who seek Him. His secrets are with those who fear Him. Will you ask Him to open up the scroll of His Truth to you? He is Yours to discover!

El Migdal-Oz: God, My High Tower

–> He is our ultimate, vantage point. In Him, we remain above all situations, away from pestilence, and out of danger. He is our fortified zone of refuge.

–> Never fear the darts that the enemy hurls at you for The Lord Himself encompasses you. Those who depend on the Lord will always advance and never retreat. Now; spring forward!

El Chuwl: God Who Birthed You

–> He decreed you into existence. He conceived you before you were conceived in your mother’s womb. You are no accident. You are His amazing miracle!

El De’ot: God of Knowledge

–> A significant lesson learned in Eden: One must never pursue knowledge instead of God. He is Omniscient; the all-knowing One. The wise and prudent heart seeks to know Him, and knowledge is acquired as part of the overflow of a relationship with Him.

El G’mulah: God of Vengeance

–> He will render what we deserve based on our works. Our repentance (i.e., humility to ask Him to forgive our wrongdoings) attracts His mercy and keeps us from being consumed in judgment. Every person who toys with evil will realize that he or she is defying the Living God. He will repay in full.

El Azar: God is My Helper

–> Our call for help will always reach the ears of our ever-present Hero and Ally. All we need to do is ask Him. We will never be helpless with Him by our side.

El Mekor Mayim Chayim: God, the Fountain of Living Waters

–>Don’t rely on deceptive brooks in life that will, sooner than later, run dry. Drink deeply of His pure, abundant Fount that will truly satisfy your deepest longing and every need. He is the unceasing, overflowing Spring of everlasting life!

El Rumn Ro’sh: God, the Lifter of my head

–> When the sheer weight of worries, sorrows, guilt and shame causes your head to droop, He offers to carry your load; gently lifting your head so you can look deeply into His compassionate eyes. With your eyes on Him, you can make it through it all.

El Sathar: God, My Hiding Place

–> He is the place of divine exchange of our inabilities with His empowering grace (our fear for His security; our despair for His peace; our weakness for His strength…). Just as a child find comforts in his/her mother’s arms, be soothed in His embrace. He is Home, Sweet Home!
