¿What is the true name of God?

Brother Marcos: God bless you always. My question is: ¿What is the true name of God?

Brother Eli: All names of God in the Bible are true, and we aren’t like Jehovah’s Witnesses, who say that Jehovah is the true name of God. That’s a disrespect to the Bible, because the Bible tells us the true. The Bible comes from the God Himself. What is written in the Bible was commanded by the Lord to be written.

1 Corinthians 14:37

If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

Let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, or apostle or master or whatever they want to call themselves. It’s an obligation of a prophet acknowledge that what is written in the Bible are commandments of the Lord. They weren’t written if weren’t the will of God. Let’s to show with Revelation chapter 10 verse 4:

Revelation 10:4

And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me: Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

According with John: And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me: Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. So, if God doesn’t to order to be written, they won’t be written in the Bible. It means so what so ever written by the prophets and the apostles in the Bible were God’s will. As the Apostle Paul says: let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. Any name that we can read in the Bible, that were commanded by God to be written are true names of God. Let’s go to read some of them. 5:27 Amos:

Amos 5:27

Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord, whose name is The God of hosts.

The word “God” is one of the names of God in the Bible. As the scripture says: says the Lord, whose name is The God of hosts. So, the phrase God of hosts, is a true name of God. Because this name is a true name of God. This name fits well to God. God is a real God of the armies. Let’s read Joel 2:25

Joel 2:25

And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

The locust he cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

When people read that God is God of the armies, they think that armies are only men. Soldiers from Israel, but they don’t know even the locust, cankerworm, palmerworm… my great army said the Lord. But it’s true that, in any way, the word God of the armies is true, because all the armies can be used by God to the work of God. Now, another name of God that is true is what is written in 34:14 of Exodus:

Exodus 34:14

For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

The Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. ¿Why God is truly jealous? Let’s read 5:7 of Deuteronomy:

Deuteronomy 5:7

Thou shalt have none other gods before me.

Deuteronomy 5:8

Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:

Deuteronomy 5:9

Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

God is a jealous God. Because he doesn’t want that we are serving or worshiping other gods. Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, as a man with his wife. You don’t want your wife to have an affair with another man, neither that the wife want the husband to have an affair with another woman. You will feel jealous. That’s why God, if we are kneeling down to other Gods that aren’t true Gods, he will feel jealous. For that God is really jealous. So the name “jealous” is a true name for God. Let’s read more. In the book of Isaiah 57:15

Isaiah 57:15

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy. God is really holy. Why? Because there isn’t sin in him. There isn’t evil in him. He’s all loving and all compassionated. The word “Holy” fits him very much. It’s a name of God. It’s a real name of God. There are some many names of the God in the Bible, brother. Don’t be fooled with the Jehovah’s Witnesses say about of the real name of God is only, Jehovah. Why? That is the only name that isn’t the real name of God. Why? Because it was invented by man. How do we prove that it was invented by man? Because the ancient Bibles written 1.500, 1.300 or 1.600 years ago, don’t contain the name “Jehovah” Why? Because the name of Jehovah only was invented in the 14th century. It was invented by man. It wasn’t dictated by God to be written in the Bible. Let’s go to prove that. Let’s read in the same Jehovah’s Witnesses book:

New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures of Jehovah’s Witnesses

Let’s go to read:

“While we are inclined to see the pronunciation ‘Yahweh’ as the right form, we have retained the form ‘Jehovah’ because it has been more familiar to people since the 14th century. In addition, he preserves the four letters of JHVH in other forms. “

That is a lie because there isn’t letter “J” in Hebrew, and is the Jehovah’s Witnesses themselves who said that. They say: “While we are inclined to see the pronunciation ‘Yahweh’ as the right form, we have retained the form ‘Jehovah’ because it has been more familiar to people since the 14th century.” So the word “Jehovah” was only invented by the Masoretes in the 14th century, meaning that the name “Jehovah” came into existence 1.400 years ago, after the apostles and the Lord Jesus Christ. And the Jehovah’s Witnesses are accepting that. The name Jehovah didn’t exist in the first century. That is why neither the apostles nor the prophets wrote the name “Jehovah”. Let’s go to read the same book of the Jehovah’s Witnesses

Reasoning from the scriptures. Page 192

“Therefore some moderns have framed the name Jehovah, being unknown by all the ancestors, be they Jewish or Christian;”

This is the same book of Jehovah’s Witnesses, meaning that they are accepting that the apostles didn’t use the name “Jehovah”. They are promoting a name that they themselves say that it was invented only in the 14th century. That’s why, brothers and sisters that listening to us right now: I ask you that invite all the Jehovah’s Witnesses in your place to come and talk about name “Jehovah” and I prove to you, that name of Jehovah’s Witnesses is a lie.

To your question, brother Marcos, my answer is: all the names given by the Bible were written by the apostles and the prophets, and are true names of God. None of them are false. The only one false name that you can read in your Bible now is “Jehovah”. That is my answer to your first question.

    Gracias a Dios hermano Elí, más aclaraciones para saber que los testigos de jehova son una FALSA religión.

  2. Los testigos de Jehová ignoran las escrituras, no respetando lo que dice en: 1 Corintios 4:6 Hermanos, todo esto lo he aplicado a mí y a Apolos como ejemplo por causa de vosotros, para que aprendáis en nosotros a no pasar más allá de lo que está escrito, y para que no estéis inflados de soberbia, favoreciendo al uno contra el otro.
