So many people have a false interpretation of who God really is. Understanding

who God really is can clear up a lot of false pretences (ideas) that so many

people have about Him. According to the Bible, there are a number of different

names and interpretations for who God truly is. WHO GOD REALLY IS! Yahweh

*?Eternal God? most common name used for God in the Old Testament (6829

times) *The New Testament uses the word Lord ?He who is? ?He who is truly

present? ?Yahweh is not merely one god among many; he is the Creator and

Ruler of heaven and earth, who is worthy of and demands the exclusive homage of

his people ? Yahweh Rapha *?I am? ??for I am the Lord, who heals

you.? Exodus 15:26 There have been countless times that God?s healing power

has been recorded in the Bible as well as on other accounts. Mostly commonly

known should be when God sent his only Son to save the world from eternal

damnation (Hell). I personally have seen instances and know people who God has

delivered from sicknesses and other forms of ?evil?. When I was a freshman

in high school my best friend?s mother was diagnosed with three forms on

cancer, she was not expected to live due to the late discovery and severity of

the cancer. She is doing great, back to her job, and is in remission. Ways God

Heals people! Yahweh Shalom: * ?Yahweh is peace? Yahweh Shammah *?The Lord

is There? ? 35"The distance all around will be 18,000 cubits. "And

the name of the city from that time on will be: THE LORD IS THERE." ?

Ezekiel 48:35 *Although this is referring to the twelve tribes Israel in the Old

Testament, I think that this could have been a prophecy that God will

continually be surrounding us. Yahweh Tsabbaoth *?Lord of Hosts? *?Lord

Almighty? *In the New Testament Host is refer to as angles, which could be

seen as protection, guidance during tough times, and most importantly a source

of encouragement during times of sickness or pain. Yahweh Tsidkenu *?Yahweh

our righteousness? ?5"The days are coming," declares the LORD,

"when I will raise up to DavidA a righteous Branch, a King who will reign

wisely and do what is just and right in the land. 6In his days Judah will be

saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be

called: The LORD Our Righteousness. ? Jeremiah 23:5-6 *In this text I think

that God is talking about healing the people that he once banished from the

land, by returning them to retake what was once theirs. Yahweh Yireh *?Yahweh

will provide? *God said that he would provide for all of our needs. This means

if we are sick we will be healed, but what really needs to be understood is that

healing does not always mean that life is the answer. Sometimes our needs and

our wants get completely mixed up. El Olam *?God the everlasting One?

*?God of Eternity? *God was here in the beginning and he will be here in the

end. God has healed throughout time and will continue to heal as long as we seek

his name. El Roi *?God who sees me? *El Roi is with me at all times and is

my protector. *God sees every move that we make and do not make. He sees when we

are sad and when we are happy. He also sees when we are sick and when we are

healthy. Most importantly he knows when to heal us, comfort us, give us space,

listen to us, and so other things because he is continually looking over us. El

Shaddai *?God the Mountain? *?God the Rock? *?God the Provider? *El

Shaddai provides for all my needs, He shields from danger, and has given me

shelter. *When I get stress and weighed down with the stress of life I like to

go up to the mountain and try to clear my mind. I do not think that healing has

to always be physical, I think God can heal in many different ways whether it be

physical, mental, social, or spiritual. Elohin *name similar to Yahweh used over

40 times in Job as a way to refer to God, without using His name Yahweh or

Adonay ?Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the

God of Jacob,? Psalms 114:7 Knowing God! To have a complete understanding of

God the Father, it is beneficial to Understand who God the Son is. These are

verses are where Jesus describes who He is and why His Father sent Him here. All

of these references come from the Gospel book of John: *6:35 ?35Then Jesus

declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry,

and he who believes in me will never be thirsty ? Here Jesus tells us if we

follow him with all of our hearts, we will need nothing more, he will provide

all that we need. The problem here is that some people do not understand that

with believing you need to live the life of a believer. Praying daily that God

will continue to work in your life and the lives of others. Reading the Word of

God which will help you understand who he is and will help you to make some of

the right choices in life. Attending church regularly and surrounding yourself

with people that will help you grow in the Lord is very important because we

need interaction with others. Other Christians who can lift us up in times of

need and can support us when we need them to. Now the Bible does not say that

you need to do any of these things, but I think that they will all help greatly.

Just like in a sport you need to practice to get better, to become closer to God

you need to do things that will help you grow closer to him. *8:12 ?12When

Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world.

Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of

life." ? This passage lets us know that Jesus will help us through the

hard times, and He will direct us in the paths that we should walk in. When

Jesus is going through the wilderness Satan tempted him three times because he

was weak and at a venerable stage. Jesus did not give in these temptations, but

we continually do fall into these types of temptations. This is where Jesus is

here to guide us and give us strength. *9:5 ? 5While I am in the world, I am

the light of the world." ? As long as Jesus is, still in the world there

is still hope for the world. The word hope here is referring to something that

we are looking forward to. I believe that when Jesus returns for the second time

to bring his people home the place that we call home will be ?Hell on Earth?

as the saying says. If God were to remove his presence from the earth not one of

us would want to go on living. The anarchy and complete destruction that would

be going on would devastate any person who has an ounce of morals. *10:7-9

?7Therefore Jesus said again, "I tell you the truth, I am the gate for

the sheep. 8All who ever came before me were thieves and robbers, but the sheep

did not listen to them. 9I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be

saved.A He will come in and go out, and find pasture. ? Jesus is telling us

here that He is here for anyone, and all we have to do is come to him. God has

given every person a choice to have eternal life or eternal death. To have

eternal life we must come to the Son of God, Jesus who waiting for us to do so.

However, we must make that choice, it is no ones responsibility except our own.

*10:11,14 ?11"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his

life for the sheep. ?14"I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my

sheep know me? Jesus lay down his life for us like that of a true shepherd.

Jesus knows each on of us that have come in to the kingdom of God, just like we

should know him. Although, Jesus allows us to wonder so that we might learn has

still given his life for us. He has given us the choice and he will not force us

to do anything, all that we do we do because we chose to do it. It is so amazing

that God would send his son to save us from the sins of the world, and then

allow his son to give his life for everyone on the earth. *11:25 ?25Jesus said

to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will

live, even though he dies; ? Jesus died and rose again and as long as we

believe this, we can be accepted into the kingdom of God. The word resurrection

means to rise from the dead and that is just what he did. *14:6 ?6Jesus

answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the

Father except through me. ? Jesus informs us here that the only way we can get

to God in heaven is through Him (Jesus). Heaven is where al that believe in God

will end up while in commune with him. Coming into the Kingdom is a free choice,

but we have to submit ourselves to Him before we can come in. To come into the

Kingdom of God is to surrender all that we have and all that we are, so that

nothing comes between our relationship with God. It is hard to put God first if

you have not surrendered all unto Him. *15:1,5 ?151"I am the true vine,

and my Father is the gardener. ?5"I am the vine; you are the branches. If

a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can

do nothing. ? Jesus is our main source of life, with him we can do all things,

apart from him we can do absolutely nothing. Apart from Jesus, we are damned to

hell and I personally can not think of anything worse than that. Yes, we can

still function in life but ultimately we will end up in the pit of the abyss

(Hell). God is all that can be imagined and then some more. However, only

someone as selfless (unselfish) as God who sent His Son Jesus Christ to this

earth to save the world from eternal death while continually beginning

persecuted. The things that Jesus had to put up with for the good that he was

doing is just unspeakable. Whipped, beaten, spat upon, made fun of, and probably

the worst was being betrayed by one of his own disciples. This is just some of

the persecution that Jesus had to suffer. Jesus is personal and provides for

everyone differently from the next person. ?Who do you say He is.?
