I will bow down toward Your holy temple and give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; for You have magnified Your Word according to all Your Name. Psalm 138:2.
I am the LORD your healer. Exodus 15:26.
And this is His name by which He will be called, “The LORD our righteousness.” Jeremiah 23:6.
“I have manifested Your Name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your Word.” John 17:6.
I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My Word, and have not denied My Name. Revelation 3:8.
He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His Name is called “The Word of God.” Revelation 19:13.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
I am with you. You may not see Me with your five senses but that is the way it has been since the first man and woman shut Me out of the world I had made for them. Do not imitate them, for without Me there is nothing worthwhile or good, for I am the source of every good thing and perfect gift, for I am love and I am light, and I have good plans for your life. But even though they shut Me out, I am ever present as your helper. When you seek Me with your heart, you shall find Me right there with you. I am there knocking to see if you will open up and let Me in, if you will enter into that everlasting Covenant with Me and again give Me authority to act upon the earth in partnership with you.
The only way you see Me now is by faith, and yet you can know Me and the One whom I sent, Jesus Christ. And you know Me the way you know anyone, you know Me by My Name and you know Me by My Word. Without knowing these two things, you never really know anyone. And you have to know their true name and you have to hear the word that is in their heart, otherwise there is no true relationship there.
To really know Me you have to know who I am. Moses asked Me to tell him My Name. He wanted a personal name. Otherwise he did not feel he could explain to the Israelites with whom he had been speaking nor would it be credible to them that I was about to free them from the slavery of Egypt. And I gave him My Name for all generations. יהוה expressed by your translators in the English language as “LORD.” This is My Name forever and this is My memorial Name to all generations. Genesis 3:15.
יהוה – full of eternity. It is formed of the three tenses of the verb of existence, “to be.” The One who is, who was and who is to come. The ever present one to whom time makes no barrier. All are alive to Me. I AM. No beginning, no end, ever present to you wherever you are, whatever generation you are in. Your creator, Father, lover, friend, companion, helper, healer, and LORD.
And to My basic nature expressed in My Name of LORD, My eternal being and your eternity in Me, I add adjectives that give fuller knowledge of Myself to you in our ongoing, eternal relationship of oneness as I reveal My Name. The LORD who heals you, the LORD your provider (who looks ahead and provides), the LORD your banner (victory, miracle), the LORD your shepherd, the LORD your refuge, the LORD your redeemer, the LORD your righteousness, the LORD your deliverer, the LORD your everlasting rock, the LORD your fortress, the LORD your protector, the LORD your helper, the LORD your light and your salvation, the LORD your wonderful counselor, the LORD God Almighty, the LORD your redeemer, the LORD your strength and your song, the LORD your savior, and I could go on and on. But do you see it is all about who I am for you? There is no burden on you except one, to agree with Me and let Me into your life. The rest will follow as you learn to partner with Me in great exploits of valor and fruitfulness. Kingdom assignments filled with glory. I teach you how to profit and the way you should go. I teach you all things by the anointing of My Spirit in you and He guides you to the truth that is in My Word.
Faith in Me comes by hearing My Word. Knowledge of Me comes by hearing My Word. If you continue in My Word, you will truly be My disciples, and then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. My Word is living and working. My Words are spirit and life. My Words are eternal life. And they are so real, that My Word became flesh and bled and died to save you. And if you remain in My Word and My Word remains in you, you may ask what you will and it shall be done for you. It is all about relationship and it comes by hearing and speaking, pondering and doing My Word. How can two partner together unless they agree?
So if you really want to know Me, and knowing Me multiplies My grace in you and that is eternal life, you must take My Words into your heart, you must bind them continually on your heart; tie them around your neck, keep them before your eyes, and when you walk about, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; and when you awake, they will talk to you. Proverbs 6:21-22.
I revealed Myself to Samuel by My Word. I am present to you by My Word. My sheep hear My voice. I know them and they follow Me. Faith is Word based.
Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ (that is, to bring Christ down), or ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead).” For My Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart—that is, the word of faith. For faith comes from hearing, and hearing by My anointed Word.
Jesus told the Pharisees that they were trying to kill Him because they did not have My Word in their hearts. The only way I will be alive to you is when you have My Word in your heart and when you have been born again from the imperishable seed of My Word. And then if you keep My Word and cherish it, guard it and store it in your heart, Jesus will disclose Himself to you and then I will come with Him to make My abode with you by My Spirit in you.
If someone calls you on the telephone and just begins talking without identifying themselves and you do not recognize their voice, you really cannot have a meaningful conversation with them until you ask them their name. But if you know them well, you will recognize their voice because you are accustomed to hearing their words and can immediately relate with them and know what they are talking about because you know them. Do you understand? If you remain, abide, dwell in My Word by spending time reading, hearing, pondering it and speaking it—asking Me questions and letting Me show you answers in My Word—then you will know instantly when I have directed you to go in a certain way that day or to talk to a particular person. You will know My voice and you will follow Me, you will not follow the voice of the stranger. You know that the stranger will only seek to pull you out of your beautiful life and take you captive to do his will. Do not let yourself be caught by crafty words that are stout against Mine. That was the fall of Adam and Eve. They knew My Word and they knew My voice, but they followed the word and the voice of a stranger who did not have their best interests at heart as I do and it changed their beautiful life into an ugly one. Do not let that be your life.
It is not hard to know Me. Even the smallest child, even the infant in the womb can. Paul told Timothy that Timothy had know the sacred Scriptures since he was a fetus in his mother’s womb. She spoke the Word over him as he dwelt in the secret place of her womb and formed into life. I called Jeremiah from his mother’s womb. Let your child in you hear worship music and psalms and Words of Mine as you worship Me in spirit and truth from the womb through all their formative years in your home. And Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit saying, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight. All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.” Matthew 11:25-27.
Focus on My Word and make it your foundation. Do not be tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth, that is, My Word is truth, in love, grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. Ephesians 4:14-16. You are a member of the body of Christ on earth, the CIA, Christ in Action.
Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, it has pleased Me to make all fullness reside in Him, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority, and in Him, and by My power in you, so are you. Colossians 2:6-10. Not by human power or might, but by My Spirit!
Know Me. You can. My Name is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and are safe (lifted up high, beyond reach of the evil one who crawls in the dirt). All those who call on My Name shall be saved. But how can they call unless they have heard of Me? And how can they hear unless there is someone who will witness My Word to them? For faith comes by hearing, and hearing My Word. My anointed Word has the power to save them and bring them to new birth as a new creation in Christ. Be My witnesses! How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news, glad tidings of Salvation (Yeshuah) for there is no other name given to men by which you can be saved. Acts 4:12. My Name saves for it contains all I am, I was, and I will be.
My Words are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh. Find My Words and then say like Jeremiah, “When Your Words were found, I devoured them, they became the joy and treasure of my heart!” My Word, implanted in your heart, has the power to save. And in My Word, you will come to know Me for who I really am. Your everything. El Shaddai.
And Jesus only taught you one Name for Me when you pray to Me. He taught you, “Father.” Abba, Papa, Daddy. I am your only true Father. Each person has an earthly father, that is, a biological father, and when you say “Father,” it is a special and unique individual to you although everyone uses that term. But to you on earth it only means one person, your earthly father. And to all of you who believe in Jesus, with Him you come to Me and you say, “Father.” My Holy Spirit, My gift to you when you believe, living in you witnesses to your spirit that you are My child, and you cry out, “ABBA!” Papa, Daddy, Father! I am YOUR Father. YOUR Heavenly Father from whom the whole family of believers from the beginning to the end of time receives its true identity and name, and all of you call Me, “Father.” For that is who I AM. Your Father who gives you every good thing and perfect gift. I stored it up for you from the beginning and it is yours forever, draw out whatever you need and more just when you need it, come with confidence to My throne, for seated on the throne at the command center of the universe, of Heaven and earth, is YOUR Father who loves you and cherishes you. You are precious in My eyes and I gave My Son, who reveals Me as My Word among you, so you could have My Name and My life in you and on you forever. Do you not think I will give you everything with Him?
And that is for all who know My Name. For I have magnified My Word according to all My Name, every one of them, from the LORD your healer, to the LORD your provider, to the LORD your righteousness, to the LORD your Father. Psalm 138:2.
Who has ascended into heaven and descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His Name or His Son’s Name? Surely you know! Proverbs 30:4.
Do you know My Name? Do you know My Word? If not, you really don’t know Me at all. It is time to go treasure hunting. It is time for you to find My Words and let Me introduce Myself to you, as I did to Abraham, as I did to Moses, as I did to Paul, and as I will do for you. I am knocking, the choice is yours. And you will find love beyond limits in the heart of your Father for you.
