A study into Ancient Meanings of 31 Names of God, and their application, by studying the meaning of the Hebrew Letters used in their spelling.
Latest Activity: Jul 16
*This study and application of 31 of the Names of God, was conducted by one who is not Jewish. I do invite those who are Messianic Jews who are fluent in Hebrew to share their insight. Though I believe I have captured the basic ancient meaning of the Names of God, there are nuances that exist in Hebrew that I am not familiar with that could expand the meanings. I would appreciate constructive help with those nuances.
*Also, please keep in mind and understand that Gentile Christians may approach the Names of God in a way which is different than the Jewish people. This you might call a cultural difference. The Jewish people, out of respect for God may use a different way to refer to God. This is one area that I also welcome help in explaining. It is important that we recognize both ways of sharing a Name of God and be respectful of both. The key is 'Reverence' when we talk of a Name of God.
*I will add one more note for all. Please keep in mind that in this study we are using the ancient meanings of the Hebrew letters. The meanings used are those found through painstaking detailed research over the past 4 1/2 years.
