Names of God Please

  1. When Moses first faced God on the mountain and asked what he should call Him, God replied with, "I am that I am". Yet, throughout the Bible various names have been given to the God of Abraham. I was wondering if others here could add to my list of names for God - I only know of a few. I would appreciate if others here would edify me to any other names that they have come across in their studies/readings.

    The only two that I know of are:

    1) Yahweh - which we are probably all familiar with as the ancient Hebrew name for the living God

    2) El-Shaddai - which means 'God Almighty', and I suspect predates Yahweh ( I may be wrong). Not having a name for the living God, the ancient peoples may have simply used words that described what He was, which was God Almighty.

    If anyone here has other names for the God of Abraham, I would love to learn them so could you please provide them for me? Thank you in advance for indulging me in my ignorance. :)

  2. There's ĕlôhı̂ym, Adonai, Yehovah, yeshua

    If You have a strongs concordance or a king James with the strongs numbers... that will be a big help also :)

  5. Thank you so much for your input. I love to speak to the Lord aloud as I go about my day, and often I get this urge to call Him by names other than "God". This now gives me a great selection of names that I can select based on how the spirit is moving me at that moment.

    Again, thank you for the effort and time to write this out, in particular GodBe4Me.
