I was an orphan in London before I was adopted by two Welsh folks who took me to Wales where I grew up, I met my natural mother about seventeen years ago, the experience was amazing, I have however, yet to meet my father, I know nothing about him not even his full name. I know his first name but If had his name in full, I could find out about his work where he lives right now and know him in person.
The blessing of being a child of God is that we know our God, our father, intimately and what a pleasure it is to know his name. The name he has given to us gentiles, the name that shows us who he God is. The invisible made visible, then unknown, now known, God in the flesh. Jehovah who has become my Jesus. The everlasting Father who has become my Saviour. Now our father is knowable and we know him because of that name. No other name of God reveals God in the flesh!
Every man should know their father, its natural, its healthy, its necessary. To know God by another name is not to know him at all. because this name,
the name above all names tells us who God is in person.
his name tells me that he is everything that the Lord God was in the Old Testament and he is everything that the Lord Jesus is in the New Testament , same God! The one true and only living God. Our Great God and Savior Jesus Christ, the one in whom God dwells in order fo us to know who he is, in the flesh. “In him dwells the fulness of the Godhead bodily,” this means he is God and man, father and Son, to me.
Because I know Jesus by name, I know my father too, after all every son should know his father’s name. If he don’t he does not really know him at all. I’m glad I know my heavenly father’s name. How about you?
