Who Is God?

God identifies Himself as YHVH in The Scriptures in the Hebrew language as this:

tetragrammaton

in the “paleo” Hebrew first and in later Hebrew character set versions of the same four letters.

Unfortunately, most Bible translations use “LORD” and that has other language connotations that are misleading since another Hebrew word adonai or “lord” in English has a somewhat different meaning and does not confer YHVH God’s status, nature, or attributes.

I do not get up into all the naming conventions that some use since unless they were there thousands of years ago they do not know how to pronounce pure Hebrew or decide how to reflect it in English.  Some people feel they are closer to YHVH God if they pronounce or spell His name accurately and that is certainly not the case.  The only case made for being close to YHVH God and His Son in all the scriptures is DOing His Commandments to be in a Righteous and blameless state so one can enter His Presence.  That is the main reason for The 7th Day Sabbath and KEEPing it HOLY.

I use YHVH for The Father and Yeshua for The Son.  I do not use Hebrew names with any other name in the scriptures for the reason I am usually communicating in English and just because John’s name might have been Yohanan it makes not a single ounce of difference in understanding the scriptures.  I pronounce YHVH as YeHoVaH and YHeoVaH.

That is all beside the POINT.

The real POINT is YHVH God is the Creator of the Universe and all that is in it and probably much more that we realize or know.

Isaiah 40:28

28 Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, YHVH,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.

Isaiah 43:15

15 I am YHVH, your Holy One,
The Creator of Israel, your King.

Genesis 1:1

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Isaiah 43:7

Everyone who is called by My name,
Whom I have created for My glory;
I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”

Isaiah 45:7

I form the light and create darkness,
I make peace and create calamity;
I, YHVH, do all these things.

Jeremiah 32:17

17 ‘Ah, YHVH God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.

Psalm 145:3

Great is YHVH, and greatly to be praised;
And His greatness is unsearchable.

Job 38:4-11

“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements?
Surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
To what were its foundations fastened?
Or who laid its cornerstone,
When the morning stars sang together,
And all the sons of God shouted for joy?

“Or who shut in the sea with doors,
When it burst forth and issued from the womb;
When I made the clouds its garment,
And thick darkness its swaddling band;
10 When I fixed My limit for it,
And set bars and doors;
11 When I said,
‘This far you may come, but no farther,
And here your proud waves must stop!’

Psalm 29:3-9

The voice of YHVH is over the waters;
The God of glory thunders;
YHVH is over many waters.
The voice of YHVH is powerful;
The voice of YHVH is full of majesty.

The voice of YHVH breaks the cedars,
Yes, YHVH splinters the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes them also skip like a calf,
Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.
The voice of YHVH divides the flames of fire.

The voice of YHVH shakes the wilderness;
YHVH shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of YHVH makes the deer give birth,
And strips the forests bare;
And in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”
