The English concept of a “Name” and the Hebrew concept of a “Name” aren’t exactly the same thing.
*** In English ***:
• A name is a collection of phonetic sounds with no apparent meaning to English ears. There are exceptions to that like “Hope” or “Faith”, but most names come from foreign languages and mean something in a foreign language, but mean nothing in English. So English ears EXPECT to hear a meaningless string of syllables for a “name”.
• A title describes your role and/or what you do.
*** In Hebrew ***:
• A Name describes your character, your role, what you do, something about you or your life, where you were born, etc.
• A title is a name. Since a Hebrew “name” has meaning, there is not the same distinction between a “title” and a “name” which exists in English. Hebrew uses the word “shem” for what we would call a “name” and for what we would call a “title” in English. “Wonderful”, “Counselor” and “Prince of Peace” are called NAMES (shems) in Isaiah chapter 9.
12. Have faith in the Most High
During our training we must have trust in the Highest Teacher of them all, so that This One can form or blend us to His liking. He is the one who can knead us and puts us to His hand if we want to deliver ourselves to him. For this we must dare to recognise Him fully. And those who trust this Most High divine creator can be harmonized under His guidance.
During our life we can become regularly confronted by difficulties. As a result of which we feel sometimes ourselves being pushed in the corner. We not only can feel even cumbersome, but we can also suffer from such pressing and stressing situations. But we must realise that this suffering will only be of a short time. Because, if we believe in God and want to live and work for Him, He shall not neglect us. He shall take into account how our heart is feeling. He knows our inner feelings. (1 Samuel 16:7;Proverbs 21:2; Jeremiah 17:10)
He shall not abandon us but shall come to help us.After we have suffered a short time, the God of all unmerited goodness, which has you called to its eternal holiness in unity with the Christos (Christus = Christ), He will finish your training, he will make you firm, and He will make you strong.
“And the God of all grace, who called you unto his eternal glory in Christ, after that ye have suffered a little while, shall himself perfect, establish, strengthen you.” (1 Peter 5:10 ASV)
“Behold,God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for Jehovah, even Jehovah, is my strength and song; and he is become my salvation.” (Isaiah 12:2ASV)
“«For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah; set to Alamoth. A Song.» God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.” (Psalms 46:1 ASV)
“He giveth power to the faint; and to him that hath no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: but they that wait for Jehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:29-31 ASV)
“Cast thy burden upon Jehovah, and he will sustain thee: He will never suffer the righteous to be moved.” (Psalms 55:22 ASV)
“For Jehovah will not cast off his people, Neither will he forsake his inheritance.”(Psalms 94:14 ASV)
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as man can bear: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation make also the way of escape, that ye may be able to endure it.” (1Corinthians 10:13 ASV)
Therefore it’s undeservedly that passing men who would like to proclaim the Word of יהוה Jehovah our God do not dare to use want the Tittles or Attributes and the Name of this one of which they say they love Him. When we dearly love somebody we are not too afraid to talk about her or him, and we would not mind calling her or him by her or his name. Why are so many Christians than afraid to talk about their heroes without using their proper names?

- Draw Close to God, and He Will Draw Close to You. (ohthankblog.wordpress.com)
how would you feel if God called you his friend? If I heard that, I would feel very honored. It would be a privilege, right? And if you think nobody could be a friend of God, think again. There were many examples of Jehovah’s friends in bible times. One example was Abraham. He was considered a friend of God because he put faith in him.Jehovah extends that same invitation to us, you know. He looks for opportunities to give us his friendship and become attached to his worshipers. In fact, Jehovah sacrificed his own son so that we might be able to draw close to him. Without that sacrifice, we could never be close with God. Why? Because we are so sinful and so far from perfection.
- Lord’s Day 36: With Reverence and Awe (urcpsalmody.wordpress.com)
The name of God is a prominent theme throughout the Scriptures, as exemplified in the content of the third commandment.
While we should not view the Lord’s name as superstitious or unspeakable, we ought to use it “only with reverence and awe”—which requires our hearts to be in the right place. Psalm 8, which begins and ends with the exclamation, “How excellent is your name in all the earth,” teaches us how we ought to approach this holy God who has so condescendingly revealed himself to us.
- Fear not! (cloud10site.wordpress.com)
Samuel was afraid of dying (it’s only natural, especially when it’s done by piercing with a sword), but what God said in reply “Take an heifer…”. My question is, wasn’t God listening? Samuel was talking about a serious matter (death) and God was talking to him about a heifer (a mere animal). This don’t seem to make sense… Through out the Scripture, we see God (and even His angel) instructing His people not to fear. It’s obvious that God had everything against fear; no wonder He didn’t respond to Samuel’s display of fear. His Word says that He hasn’t given us the spirit of fear (because He simply doesn’t have it to give) but of power (the direct working of faith), love and sound mind.
- You Need All The Help You Can Get. You Need To Let Go. (dianasymons.com)
Do you get white-knuckled when it looks like your best plans are falling apart? That’s called fear—fear that you are losing control. The enemy loves that. God hates it.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (Matthew 6:33)
- Eternal Strength (pbsministries.wordpress.com)
Strength is the state of being strong. The Lord gives eternal strength to His children. He is our strength every morning and night, so we can declare that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. When we are weak, He makes us strong. The Lord is our strong tower. He said in His Word, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Be strong in the Lord.
- The Cast Down Pilgrim (calledworkman.wordpress.com)
When we are weak physically and spiritually our great adversary attacks. Those attacks are usually very strong and can cause much pain. After he has caused us to sin than he puts us in deep guilt, he will cause us to lose assurance of our salvation and like a heavy sack over our shoulder we walk burdened down with the weight. Thanks be to God, it is at that time I am always reminded of the verse: “Ye are of God, my little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world.”(1 John 4:4 ASV)
- SIH’s Think On These Things: Proverbs 25:20-23 (settledinheaven.wordpress.com)
When we make light or ignore our enemies’ grief, it displays a lack of concern and only increases their grief and their bitterness towards us. It is very similar to taking an acid and pouring it upon a base, which renders both substances ineffectual. Likewise, it is like taking away a warm garment from an individual, leaving them exposed to the cold weather.
- David and Goliath (onetruthmin.wordpress.com)
The story of David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17) is one that has become a metaphor for the victory of the underdog. It is often referenced to bolster the courage of people who face overwhelming circumstances.
The story of David and Goliath offers many inspiring and courage-producing lessons. There is the reminder that faith and fear cannot co-exist. Saul and the Israelite army were gripped by fear at the sound of Goliath’s voice (1 Samuel 17:11). Their fear blinded them to the reality that, though Goliath was a giant of a man, God is infinitely more powerful. As long as one’s eyes are fixed on obstacles, he/she cannot see God’s provision for overcoming those obstacles.
- You Might Be Reading Proverbs Wrong (onetheology.com)
The Christian worldview argues, I believe rightfully so, that our universe isn’t how it should be. Evil and sin abound. This bleeds through society and makes itself known through famine, war, oppression, and natural disasters. That being said, there will be instances when the fallenness of our world derails the probable truths of biblical proverbs.
- Word Of The Week- Friendship (25/08/13-01/09/13) (renaissanceideal.wordpress.com)
We know who are brothers and sisters are, when we are going through a hard time. The friends I am describing are people who are not only with you in the good times, but also in the not so good times-that’s real friendship! I love my friends because they accept me with both my strengths and weaknesses.
The Bible says a friend should love at all times, regardless of the circumstances. We are imperfect beings, all of us are bound to make mistakes. A good friend would not take our mistakes and hold it as grudges. A friend would ask for forgiveness, or forgive their friend and keep it moving.
