The Names of God: YHWH

YHWH is “I AM;” “The One Who is Self-Existent One.” YHWH is the Hebrew name that was revealed to Moses in Exodus. It is also a tetragrammaton (refers to a group of four letters). It occurs around 6,800 times in the Bible. I found it interesting that in the Old Testament Moses, Samuel, David, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and others freely called on the name of YHWH. It was much later in Israel’s history that rabbi’s determined this name for God was too personal for humans to pronounce. We serve a personal God who loves us so much He sent His son to die so that we could live through Him. He wants a personal relationship with each of us. One filled with two-way conversations. He doesn’t change, He has been here since the beginning of time and it was Him who created the earth and man. The Old Testament saints called on YHWH and you can too. YHWH is “I AM.” He is “The One Who is Self-Existent One” and He desires an intimate relationship with you. 🦅 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
