Things I Write On The Blank "Notes" Pages In My Bible - The Names of God

After participating in the Bible study, "Lord, Teach Me To Pray" by Kay Arthur, I realized the significance of the names of God. Now, I keep them handy in the back of my Bible. Here is the list I have accumulated so far...

Elohim - "Creator" - Genesis 1:1 (Elohim is Yahweh - Deuteronomy 6:4)
Yahweh - "Lord" - Genesis 2:4
El Elyon - "The Most High" (Sovereign) - Genesis 14:18-20 (Isaiah 14:14)
El Roi - "the One who sees me" - Genesis 16:13
El Shaddai - "God Almighty" - Genesis 17:12?
Jehovah-Jireh - "The Lord will Provide" - Genesis 22:14
I am - Yahweh/Lord - Exodus 3:14
Jehovah-Rophe - "The Lord Who Heals" - Exodus 15:26
Jehovah-Nissi - "The Lord is my Banner" - Exodus 17:15
Jehovah-Shalom - "The Lord is Peace" - Judges 6:24
Jehovah-Shabaoth - "The Lord of Hosts" - 1 Samuel 1:3-11
Jehovah-Roi - "The Lord is my Shepherd" - Psalm 23:1
El Olam - "everlasting God" - Isaiah 40:28
Jehovah-Tsidkenu - "The Lord our Righteousness" - Jeremiah 23:6
Jehovah-Shammah - "The Lord is There" (with us) - Ezekiel 48:35

Adonai = Lord
Jehovah = YHWH + Adonai

Sometimes it helps to use the names of God accordingly to be in the right frame of mind during times of prayer, petition and thanksgiving. I pray that my list helps you in your own prayer times.

Homiletics Training: Content

Homiletics .   By definition, “homiletic” is the art of preaching or writing sermons.   I think we would all agree that our pastors study the Bible thoroughly to deliver sermons every Sunday to their congregations.   The beautiful news is that every child of God can use this discipline to study the Bible for themselves. As a member of Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) Leadership, part of my required preparation each week is to prepare homiletics for the passage we are studying.   BSF offers an engaging seminar on how to use this method to study the Scriptures.   I’ve taken the seminar several times under two different leaders and I’ve learned something new every time I’ve attended.   I’ve also been doing the process of homiletics for over ten years and I can say that there is no better teacher than the Holy Spirit in this process!   So keep practicing.   Keep sharing and discussing.   I’ve been posting my homiletics on this blog for quite a while, now.   And I would like to share wit
