God's Word, God's Day

We know what God is like, not only by His perfections and works, but also by His names. They tell us many things about God’s care and concern for his own. This is one of the fascinating studies of Scripture. The various circumstances which bring forth each of the names of God are important. Lets take a couple verses for today, they are excellent and will show you a little of who God is, and what he can do.
Abraham called on the name of the Lord in Genesis
Gen. 12:8 "And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD."
Gen 13:4 "Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the LORD."
The name of God is called “wonderful” in Judges
Judges 13:18 "And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Why askest thou thus after my name, seeing it is secret?"
Salvation is through His name in John
John 1:12 "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name:
He has hundreds of names, and each one is amazing, each aspect of God's nature is amazing, and I thank him for his amazing grace.
