Who is God?

Who is God?

When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, “I am El-Shaddai–‘God Almighty.’ Serve me faithfully and live a blameless life.
-Genesis 17: 1

El Shaddai means God Almighty, God of the mountains.

I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the different names for God found within the Bible. Here are a few of them.

ELOHIM
meaning “God”, a reference to God’s power and might.

JEHOVAH-RAPHA

Who is God to you? What is His character? What are His ways? What is His nature? How does He care for you? What does He mean to you?

Call upon your God.

God is love.

He will respond.

  1. God is Love and heere you have mentioned different titles, which is not exactly the same as names. The Adonai Elohim Hashem is sanctified and His name should be set apart or made holy, by calling Him by His name Jehovah.
