The Names of God

September 24, 2012

Every once in awhile, I like to just teach a Bible information message rather than teach life lessons, via testimonies. Some of this may seem dry by comparison, but we need to know the Word. I usually like to get beneath the layers of facts and get at the heart of a message. For me it is not enough to KNOW something, I want also to glean the meaning, and the “why”, if possible, behind the truth. (“Inquiring minds want to know...”!). However, this is a lesson where the Hebrew meaning indicates the benefit.

I have taught this lesson on the Names of God before, but it may have not been on this site. Names say who you are, and are important to give an accurate impression of what you stand for...even the Bible says “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches...” (Prov. 22:1). I hope you enjoy learning about the following Names of our God!



The Lord My Righteousness

Sin: Forgiveness of sin and deliverance from sins

(2 Cor. 5:21)



The Lord My Sanctifier


(Heb. 13:12)



The Lord My Peace

Spirit: The fullness and presence of the Spirit

(Col. 1:20-22)



The Lord is Present

(1 Cor. 3:16; Heb. 13:5)



The Lord My Healer

Soundness: The promise of  health and healing

(Is. 53:5, 1 Pet. 2:24)



The Lord My Provider

Success: Freedom from the law’s curse of failure and insufficiency

(Gal. 3:11-14, Rom. 8:32)



The Lord My Banner

Security: Freedom from the fear of death and hell.

(Is. 11:10, 2 Tim. 1:10)



The Lord My Shepherd

(John 10:27-28, Ps. 23:4)


This is a bit shorter than most of our articles, but for the serious Bible student I think it is appreciated. These Jewish names tell us of the various aspects of our wondrous God.

Since it is a shorter article, I decided to add another fact based teaching which I have posted before in 2005, but for some reason is not coming up when clicked. It may just be my computer malfunction, or it may be that when we changed websites, it didn't transfer over...either way, I feel this is a good place to add that information, since I have the space to do so.


 The Feasts of Israel in Bible Prophecy


“Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.' Thus begins the Jewish feast known as the feast of trumpets. Leviticus 23:24-25

Prophetically and biblically this feast is very significant for both the Christian and Jew. All Jewish feasts represent a picture of the work of Jesus Christ on earth. All the major events of the first coming of Christ occurred in the spring on a Jewish feast day. Israel was celebrating the feast of Passover when Jesus entered into Jerusalem riding on a donkey as the King of Israel. Passover is the feast that celebrates and remembers the time when the Israelites took the blood of an unblemished lamb and painted a cross of blood above their doors so the angel of death would pass over them that evening.

Jesus became our sacrificial lamb during the feast of Passover. It is the blood of His sacrifice that frees us from the penalty of sin thus giving us everlasting life even though our bodies perish.

Jesus was buried during the feast of unleavened bread. Leaven represents sin and unleavened bread is symbolic of a man who is without sin or had their sins washed away. The unleavened bread is symbolic of Jesus, the man who was buried without ever committing a sin in His life. 

The third Jewish feast is the feast of first fruits and Jesus was resurrected during this feast. 1 Cor.15:20 states: But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first-fruits of those who have fallen asleep. 

The fourth Jewish feast is the feast of Pentecost which occurs 50 days after the feast of Passover. This is when God sent us the Holy Spirit who indwells all who place their trust in Christ. As we can see, all of the significant events of the first coming of Christ occurred during a Jewish spring festival. There are 7 Jewish feasts associated with Bible prophecy. The first four are in the spring and the last three are in the fall which brings us to Rose Hasheesh – the feast of trumpets.

 In our country, the new year begins on January the 1st. Rosh Hashanah is a type of New Year's day for the Jewish culture. It begins a ten day period known as the Days of Awe. What is the next major event scheduled to occur in Bible Prophecy concerning Jesus Christ? It's the time He blows the trumpet to call His church home. This is called the “Rapture” which comes from the Greek word “rapio” which means a snatching away.

 Since all the major events of the first coming of Christ occurred on a Jewish feast day in spring and the remaining feast days are in the fall, does it not make sense to believe that it is very likely that all of the major events of the second coming will occur on a Jewish feast day in the fall?

 This year Rosh Hashanah began on September 17th and will last until September 26th. This ten day period is known as the Days of Awe or the days of repentance. This is the time to consider sins of the previous year and repent of them before the next Jewish feast known as Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement or judgment. It has been noted that many hurricanes and earthquakes occur during this time of repentance and atonement.

 The Jewish tradition is that this 10 day period is when God makes decisions that will affect you for the next 12 months. He writes down in a book who will live and who will die; who will have a good life and who will have a bad life. It is our actions during this ten day period that will alter God's decree.

 Some teachers feel that if you are a Christian, then this 10 day period beginning with Rosh Hashanah and ending with Yom Kippur is the tine to bring your petitions before God in prayer. Example; who are you burdened for? What problem has been weighing you down? Now is the time to pray about it. This concept is not taught in our churches and some feel that it should be, as it is part of our Bible. Personally, I have to plead Romans 14:5 on this one!

 According to the Jewish beliefs, The Days of Awe is this 10 day period in which the Heavenly courts are opened up to the inhabitants of the earth. When the Rapture occurs, again it is the Heavens which are opened up to receive the inhabitants of earth who are watching and awaiting the Lord's coming. Our positions and rewards in Heaven will be determined by our faithfulness here on earth. Some will be rewarded more than others and have more responsibility.

Yom Kippur follows the Days of Awe. When the Rapture occurs, those who have rejected Christ will be left behind and will atone for their sin through judgment, which you can read about in the book of  the Revelation. 

The last feast is the Feast of Tabernacles. This is when the harvest is brought in and the good wheat is separated from the chaff. This occurs after the Day of Atonement which is exactly what the book of Revelation says will occur at the end of the 21 judgments on earth. Christ will return as King of Kings and Lord of Lords during this Feast of Tabernacles!


God Bless You,

Dear Reader:

This article is in no way an attempt to teach on the events of The Revelation. This writing was to show God has a pattern that is prophesied in the order of the Old Testament's feast days and fulfilled in the order of the New Testament's Book of the Revelation. We can see many “types and shadows” throughout the Bible, as history foretells future events.

One thing I really like about God...He isn't boring! When you sign on with HIM, you are in for an adventure! I once heard a TV preacher say, “We need to ask ourselves if we are a fainter or a fighter, a weakling or a warrior, a victim or a victor”. That is certainly a Selah (pause and think on that) question! We are faced with these situations at one time or another in life, even if not on a daily basis.

Unlike the TV comedian who us...

Sister Kathy

Due to the loss of  my elder brother, “Lou” in his first trimester of life, I became the first born of 5 children. My sister Kathy was the middle child. If there is anything significant to the “birth order” theory, then she is the typical middle kid. Somehow there was always a hub-bub of activity wherever she went. Tomorrow is her 62nd birthday, and nothing much has changed. She is still the little whirl-wind! In fact, I ...

Sheep Beget Sheep

In the 1970's, my young daughter and I began life on our own in a new location not far from home. We had been through quite a rough patch as the country folk call it, and needed to make a new start. After finding a cozy little house in a safe neighborhood, the next thing we needed to do was find a church. As it “so happened” a new church was being built and scheduled to open soon close by and it seemed they were having a time of it, too. First, a f...

[Those of you who have read my articles the past twelve years know that I write my own commentaries. Anytime I borrow from another writer, I always give the credit to the originator.

As we continue last month's teaching, we glance briefly at the nations under the human government of four world empires, and we see strange figures for facts. The Prophet Daniel saw the beginning when he was a captive taken by King Nebuchadnezzar at the fall of the holy Temple in Jerusalem. In Daniel 1:8, he purposed in his heart he would not be defiled w...

“12-21-12...The End of the World... AGAIN?"

February 8, 2012

Every so often, some unknown “wanna be” sticks his head up and announces some wild prediction to the masses, of doom, gloom, and the destruction of the world. When the date comes and goes without incident, as in the most recent case, then the “see-er” recalculates his dates and comes up with another one, as also in the most recent case. After so many tries, people tend to lose faith in the boy who cri...

Saints on Assignment

Here we are once again, at the close of another year. It is so hard to believe that 2011 is winding down, and yet it will be the New Year before we know it! Maybe it is just me, but the older I get the faster life goes! However, the one thing that keeps me mentally staying on course is I feel I still have things to do.
Regardless of age or condition, we are required to “finish our course and keep the faith for there is a Crown laid up for u...

The Church: Boot Camp, Social Club, or Nursing Home?

For the past three years, I have been watching our church scene here in America, more so than usual. It may have to do with my personal unrest in my own small town, but it seems to me that the Church seems on the decline in most places. With the return of our Lord Jesus feeling so close, I find this alarming, to say the least! It feels like so many churches have lost their vision, and even our political scene s...

Beloved Dysfunctionals

November 5, 2011


  1. Not operating normally or properly.
  2. Deviating from the norms of social behavior in a way regarded as bad.

Yesterday was my birthday, and I awoke this morning thinking that I haven't even started on October's article yet! I thought, “Well, this is a great way to start this next year of my life!” I dragged out of bed, and began the morning routine. (It is amazing how that takes a bit longer these days)! I opened the back door, as Kit-Kat was pa...

The Home Place Mission had a former site and the time came where we had to switch web site hosts. Our email had to be changed as well. In transferring the articles over, every effort was made to correct any inferences to the old email address (the new one is on the home page). Also, all articles containing hyper links were needing updated too. Please forgive us if some things may have been overlooked. Because this page is in a blog format, the date we transferred each article over is what shows under the title when opened. The correct date each article was written is beside the title under the category column. We apologize for the blog format, as it is not as "user-friendly" as our old site but we do hope you find the articles encouraging and are blessed by the insights shared! Thank you for reading!
