What’s in a name?

I was named after my great uncle Roger who was a fighter pilot in the war but that’s the only special thing about my name. What about you, were you named after someone special in your family or was your name chosen just because your parents liked it? Gods names describe the many aspects of his character and what he has done for us, here is a list I have compiled.

Bible and cross

Holy Bible, what do you think?

Those of you who think the Bible is full of: hallelujahs, amems, thou shalt nots, lists of rules to follow and boring prayers check out these verses. (These verses are from the New King James version).

Genesis 19:32 “Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.”

Exodus 8:6 So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt. 7 And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs on the land of Egypt.

Exodus 9:10 Then they took ashes from the furnace and stood before Pharaoh, and Moses scattered them toward heaven. And they caused boils that break out in sores on man and beast.11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were on the magicians and on all the Egyptians.

Numbers 13:33 “There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”

Numbers 22:29 And Balaam said to the donkey, “Because you have abused me. I wish there were a sword in my hand, for now I would kill you!” 30 So the donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your donkey on which you have ridden, ever since I became yours, to this day? Was I ever disposed to do this to you?” And he said, “No.”

Joshua 10:13 So the sun stood still, And the moon stopped, Till the people had revenge upon their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.

Judges 1:6 Then Adoni-Bezek fled, and they pursued him and caught him and cut off his thumbs and big toes.

Judges 4:21 Then Jael, Heber’s wife, took a tent peg and took a hammer in her hand, and went softly to him and drove the peg into his temple, and it went down into the ground; for he was fast asleep and weary. So he died.

Job 41:19 Out of his mouth go burning lights; Sparks of fire shoot out. 20 Smoke goes out of his nostrils, As from a boiling pot and burning rushes. 21 His breath kindles coals, And a flame goes out of his mouth.

The following verses talk about our sin and becoming a Christian. I have tried to explain some of them.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

(What this means is that we have all done wrong. From the Queen and the Pope to the homeless people in the streets we are all the same.)

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Acts 10:43  To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believein Him will receive remission of sins.”

(Becoming a Christian is easy, you don’t have to pay any money, perform any strange rituals or be blessed by bearded priests wearing long robes and carrying huge bibles. You just have to realize that you have sinned and believe that the Lord Jesus died on the cross for you and rose to life again – the Easter story).

1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit,

John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:

1 John 5:11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.

It’s important to realize that becoming a Christian will not make anybody perfect and unable to do any wrong but it’s definitely the best and most amazing thing you will ever do.
