The Name of the Lord is a Strong Tower

God is the God of Truth.  Truth is essentially a revelation of Who God is.

In the Bible, it is through God’s actions and His name that He reveals Himself to us.  In fact, to show that His name reveals His very essence, God refers to the Temple, where He Himself would come and manifest His presence to His people, as the place where He would put His name”.                (e.g. 1 Kings 9:3)

Jesus, referring to His teaching the disciples regarding God’s actions, will, and truth prayed to the Father,  "I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me…”                        John 17:6 (NKJV)

We believe that the Name of God, as He revealed it, is the basis of all Bible doctrine.

The Psalms are filled with examples and exhortations to “Praise His name!”

Confessing the name of the Lord is the basis of all Praise.

By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name. Hebrews 13:15 (KJV)

Proverbs 18:10 says that the name  of the Lord is a strong tower, one to which the righteous run to be saved. 

His name(s) reveals to us who He is and what He does. This gives us faith to approach Him, to trust Him, and to pray for His benefits and saving grace.

Below are examples of God’s revealed name.  Note: Many Bible versions, after a Hebrew tradition, do not translate God’s proper name “Jehovah” [YHWH] [occurring over 5600 times] as such. It is instead translated into English as the simple title: “Lord”.  Also, where Hebrew words are translated below into English, spellings are only approximate.
