|4: Who hath ascended up in to heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in His fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name, if thou canst tell?
Answer: Yahweh is His name, and Yeshua is His Son's name.
NOTE: Jehovah (or Yahovah) is the common English pronunciation of the Hebrew tetragram YHVH (or YHWH). Another rendering is 'Yahweh.'
|"The name means: 'He who happens (upon us), he who befalls us, he who in the
absolute sense exists and who manifests his existence and his character.'
(Exodus 3:13-15) The creator, upholder and moral governor of the universe is
'elohim, God; the covenant God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the God in whom
lay their 'present strength' and their hope for 'future existence' is El
Shaddai ('El Shadday) God Almighty; but the God of revelation and grace,
dwelling with his people, guiding and delivering them and receiving their
worship is Jehovah. (Westminster Dictionary of the Bible)

7: Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

20: He that is our God is the God of Salvation; and unto God the Lord belong the issues from death.
Salvation is free; but it cost the Most High dearly.
|God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
| He is a father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows.
| But now, O LORD, thou art our father...
|Our Father which art in heaven ...
The Saviour advises us to address the Almighty as 'Father.' Amid the confusion that exists as
regards the sacred names of the Almighty, this inspired instruction becomes ever more important. Not
only so, but we are to remember that Yahweh is our Father: not just mine or yours - but 'our
Father.' This makes believers members of one family. The very best earthly father is no
comparison to our heavenly Father; and it is only when we know Him as a Father that we can
trust Him totally. For He not only gave us life, but has sustained us since we were babes. And
so with the Psalmist we can say,
| I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God:
|Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help; whose hope is in the LORD his God.
|Wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
Yes, Yahweh is in the business of saving souls. He calls it 'His work.' In His work, His family business, all His 'children' have a job to do.
|34: For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and
gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
35: Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
36: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
37: And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
| This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
|For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
| And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
|1 Thessalonians 4:3-8
|For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication.
In short, the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel is engaged in the work of salvation; and He wants everyone to believe in His only begotten Son Yeshua (Jesus Christ): and then to go on to become holy people. Holiness is the Almighty's goal for every one of His children. Never forget that.
|1 John 2:15
| Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16: For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17: And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
