The Word For GodThe word “GOD” is not a name but a title used by man to separate theAlmighty Creator from other beings. Because God is perceived asalmighty, there can not be any other apart from Him, in His class.Before Jesus Christ was born, the LORD GOD of Israel revealing Hisname to Moses in response to the latter’s demand to know same,declared:“and God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shall thou say unto the childrenof Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shall thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD GOD of your fathers, The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations” (Exodus 3:14-15 KJV)Evidently the LORD GOD of Israel has a name – I AM or in full I AMTHAT I AM (YHWH, YAHWEH, YAHOVAH); and to remove any doubt, Heclearly defined Himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Hefurther went on to establish this as His exclusive description for alleternity and for all generation.When Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah came; He limited the descriptionof the Father to that which was already given – the God of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob.Granted that every language and culture has a word that stand for theSupreme Being, however if such word does not translate to the LORDGOD of Israel – the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; then idolatry anddirect worship of Satan is implied and present.Where I come from, the word for God is ABASI and to separate the trueGod from the grand pretender and his cohort-demons, we describeGOD as Abasi Abraham, Isaac ye Jacob. Any tribe, race, language orculture whose word for God does not and can not measure up to, or
different from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; should considersuch word as a label for idols and demons. Those who think otherwisecan gather at the Valley of Decision where painful signs will be used toprove the truth to the sons of disobedience. Anybody?The earth demands severe judgment if the LORD GOD of Israel is notworshipped in all its regions, and as Revelation 14:6-10 has shown,those who bow to any other apart from I AM have an appointment withhellfire.To be sure the true God is worshipped, we have to follow Jesus ofNazareth who had declared, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”.Again Paul in 1 Cor. 3:11 said that no other foundation can be laid otherthan Jesus Christ. This foundation was laid before the world wascreated, without it the material world would not have been possible.The foundation was laid at least 430 years before the Law of Moses wasgiven. The Law was given as a sign post to guide us to the grace of Godin Christ Jesus. Any other foundation before or after Jesus Christ iseither a shadow of grace or a lie.Now grace is not just an experience, gift or power; it is a personalitythat teaches humanity to turn from rebellion, it is a person that canpreserve those who accept Him (Titus 2:11-14). Grace is Jesus in youand with you.those who reject grace have a date with judgment. Peace upon thewise virgins.Come Lord Jesus: the Lion and the Lamb, the Shepherd and the Lamb,the Healer and the Wounded, the Father and the Son; LORD GOD ofIsrael.
