Living Near

June 6, 2011 Donna New

Nehemiah 1:9 though your outcasts were in the uttermost part of the heavens, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen, to cause my Name to dwell there.

God wanted to bring His people near to His Name.  He chose a place on earth swhere it dwells. It’s how they would know Him. It’s how they would learn His qualities and become more loving and strong like Him.

If He desired His people to live near His Name there must be something about His Name. He has very many variations to the Name He told Moses, I AM… I AM the God Who Sees, I AM Your Provider, etc. Then there were Names not specifically connected to I AM such as Adonai and Wonderful Counselor.

The Names are descriptive of Him. So if we do a study of His Names we’ll know Him better and be nearer Him. It’ll be kind of like a study of His heart for us.
