"Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory [is] above the earth and heaven." Psa 148:13 In the Old Testament times, a name was not only identification, but an identity as well. Many times a special meaning was attached to the name. Names had, among other purposes, an explanatory purpose (e.g., Nabal, whose name means "fool," is the target of Abigail's explanation to David: "For as his name is, so is he; Nabal is his name, and folly is with him:" - 1Sa 25:25). Throughout Scripture God reveals Himself to us through His names. Who is God to you? Is He your Most High God, All sufficient One, Master, Lord of Peace, the Lord Who Will Provide? Hallowed be Your name? To hallow a thing is to make it holy or to set it apart to be exalted as being worthy of absolute devotion. (el shad-di') All-Sufficient One, Lord God Almighty Use in the Bible: In the Old Testament El Shaddai occurs 7 times. Variant spellings: None TWOT Reference: 2333 Strong's Reference: H7706

David PawsonGod’s Perfect Gift - Resources - Setting Captives Free"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change."(James 1:17, ESV throughout) We've been blessed. Whether we're consciously aware of it or not, every good thing we enjoy here on earth is a gift from our steadfast Heavenly Father above. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, our health, our friends and families, even our very life. Before we talk about what repentance is, let's take a moment to look at a couple things repentance is not. First, repentance is not regret. Do you see it? Repentance, on the other hand, is God-centered. "Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight, so that you may be justified in your words and blameless in your judgment." Second, repentance is not conviction. Can you think of someone in the Bible who was convinced but not repentant? Israel had escaped Egypt and begun their forty year march through the wilderness.

Bible Study Guides (Executable Outlines)<< Previous | Home | Next >>On Faith | John LeeThe Question Why did Jesus come to the Earth? Sunday school & church goers will answer something along this line: To save us from our sins so that we can go to heaven and have eternal life Focus on self-benefit (going to heaven) and self-salvation (eternal life) constitute the underlying paradigm of this common response. America's obsession with heaven, a mythical place with no negativity and everything good, and immortality has diluted the truth of the gospel. The Bridge to Heaven and Eternal Life Many Christians today have seen an illustration similar to the one above in an explanation of Jesus' work. Many Christians today have grown up reading or learning mainly about how Jesus Christ saved us from our sins. In the Gospel of John, John repeatedly illustrates that Jesus is the only one who has come from the Father, heard from the Father, interacted with the Father, lived with the Father, communed with the Father, seen the Father and known the Father.
