A. THE NAME IN THE PATRIARCHAL ERA

Prior to Moses, the Patriarchs knew the Lord by their Name 'ELOHIM, God of gods, in keeping with the general view in all cultures of the Middle East of that time, of a principal deity surrounded by a court of lesser gods.

Later, one of the ancient editors of the Pentateuch (Ezra?) Introduced the Name of YHVH, as it appears in those versions of the Bible that preserve the Names of the original ones in Hebrew.

But it was Elohim [1] (God of gods), the name given by the ancient Patriarchs, along with others who denoted the attributes of the Lord, as being:

The אל: 'god' in general, as in Akkadian language ilu.

The Hebrew Olam lm eternal, 'eternal god'. It can also be translated as 'universal god'.

The Roi God sees me or 'God takes care of me'.

The Shalom God of peace.

The Shofar Haarets 'God who judges the whole Earth'.

The Shaddai שַׁדַּי (shadai) is the name of God in the Book of Job and according to Exodus 6: 2-3 and the one who knew the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Eloah Name used in poetry and in Deuteronomy 32: 15-17. It comes from the Aramaic, Elah and would be equivalent to the Arabic form Allah. It is as Jacob calls it in Gen.33.20

Hashem The Name



B. THE NAME IN THE AGE OF LAW.

The patriarchal Age ends in Genesis 50 and in Exodus begins another Era, the Age of Israel's Redemption, the Age of the Law of Moses, and then the Lord reveals Himself with another Name.

 "13 And Moshe said unto Elohim, Behold, I come to the children of Israel, and I say unto them, The Elohim of their fathers hath sent me unto you: if they ask me, What is his name? "
14 And Hashem said, "Eheie asher Eheie [2]," And He said, "Thus shall you say to the Children of Israel: I will be sent to you." 15 And God said to Moses, "Thus shalt thou say to the sons of Israel, The Eternal, the God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. He has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance, from generation to generation. Book of the Shemot Parasha - Exodus 3: 13-14.

Throughout the Age of the Law or Old Covenant, His Name is YHVH, acronym [3] of I Am That I Am. The important thing was in that time, to know that He was Who Is and who gives essence to everything that "is", that is to everything that exists.



C. THE NAME IN THE AGE OF GRACE

The Age of Grace, proclaimed almost from the Beginning, where God is even anticipated to be with us: "Well, the Lord Himself will give you the sign. Look! The virgin [e] will conceive a child! She will bear a son and call him Immanuel (meaning God is with us) "(Isaiah 7:14 NKJV) prophecy with fulfillment in Matthew 1:23. In Grace, the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us (John 1:14). At the Annunciation to Miriam, the Angel Gabriel says: "Do not be afraid, Mary," said the angel, "because you have found the favor of God! 31 You shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Jesus. 32 He will be very great and will call him Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give you the throne of your ancestor David. 33 And he shall reign over Israel forever; His kingdom will have no end! "Luke 1.30 NTV.



D. THE NAME AT THE END OF THE TIMES

In this last Age, the Lord will also reveal Himself with a New Name, that only those Born Again will enter the Kingdom, which will also receive a new name: 11 I am coming soon. Hold fast to what you have, so that no one will take away your crown.12 To all who are overcomers, I will make them pillars in the temple of my God, and they will never have to leave there. I will write on them the name of my God, and they will be citizens of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem that descends from heaven and from my God. And I will write in them my new name. Revelation 3.11-12 NTV.




E. THE NAME OF THE LORD, ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT

In each age the Lord appeared with a name, and according to the Hebrew culture in its different epochs (which is where he chose to manifest) these names have a meaning and mark their purpose.

In Grace, the Name in Spanish Jesus, from the Latin Iesus, and in turn from the Greek Ιησούς (Iēsûs), derived from the Hebrew Yehoshua, which means YHVH Salva, ie, the One Who Is Salvation.

The Name Jesus determines the Age of Grace, as long as He is identified with that Name, there will be time to be saved.

To understand in the Spirit is to understand the meanings and not to engage in useless religious questions such as the Judaizers, who insist that the Lord should only be told Yeshua, as if it were a magical matter to say it in Hebrew so that "the saving power may take effect" . Or as others claim that Jehovah should be named, or as those who say that to be saved we must speak like the "Three Musketeers."

The custom of the peoples of the Middle East is to name according to a purpose or function in life, unlike the Westerners, that we do not give more importance to the meaning of names. God saves those who understand that there is salvation in Him, that we have believed in the Work of the Cross.

Week 70 is about to begin. To study Scripture is to pay attention to the small details, knowing the Truth also makes us free from religiosity.

[1] Elohim (God of gods), a superlative title of majesty applied to God. His ending in Hebrew is plural, it is the same majestic plural that applies to the title Meleh ha Melachim (King of Kings), Shir Hashirim (Song of Songs) and also Lord of Lords. The etymology of the word Elohim has so far not been satisfactorily explained, ancient Jewish and ecclesiastical writers concur with many modern scholars in deriving Elohim from the Canaanite EL voice, but there is a great difference of opinion as to the method of derivation. Scholars consider Elohim as a sort of argumentative form of Him; But in spite of disagreement over the method of derivation, these scholars come together by assuming that in the early Hebrew the singular form of the word signifying God was EL, and its plural form Elohim, and that only in more recent times was the singular form of Eloah, thus giving Elohim a corresponding grammatically correct. Scholars consider that the meaning of Elohim (as derived from Him) would be "the strong."

[2] "Eheie asher Eheie" which is translated as "I am that I am", and perhaps better: "I will be the one who will be", but undoubtedly it can be reduced to "I am", as the Torah itself Our Bible.


[3] An acronym is an acronym, as a United Nations organization.
