The Glory of His Name—The greatest revelation of our Infinite God’s nature, character, and personhood comes through His Name. Theologians have classified all the different names, ascriptions, and titles of our Triune: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
In Theology (or the study of God), we find there are no less than 420 names, titles, and ascriptions of God in three persons, contained in the Scriptures. In the Old Testament, there are 225 of them, and in the New Testament, there are 195.
Once a year, at Christmas, we mostly hear the sound of that incredible river, of the mighty names of God, come down to man, revealed from Heaven through the inspired Word.
God revealed Himself to mankind as a man.
God used human terms so we could understand Him.
God gave incredible access to know Him and understand His power and love, by way of a series of names, titles, and ascriptions to His Majesty.
To the Old Testament saints, the name of the Lord was a strong tower.
In the New Testament, Jesus became God with us!
1. The Name of Jesus is the saving name: “Thou shalt call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).
2. The Name of Jesus is the sanctifying name. We are to do all things, in word and deed, in the name of the Lord Jesus (Colossians 3:17).
3. The Name of Jesus is the sovereign name. “At the name of Jesus every knee should bow” (Philippians 2:10). It is the name that as the hymn writer said: “charms our fears and bids our sorrows cease.” It is the name that, as “music in the sinner’s ears, brings life and health and peace.”
