The names of God

I am going to start with a little chat that I had with the Holy Spirit when trying to understand the 3 in one relationship. For me, the revelation of God has been in their different functions so I am not going to into a debate of whether there are 3 or people, one person. Besides, I have read in the Bible He is seated at the right hand of the Father making it two beings.

When I asked the Holy Spirit about it, he told me the mystery will be revealed one day and they are in a symbiotic relationship submitted to each other to the Glory of God. They are all equal and they are God.


Elohim means creator. Elohim is a plural name bringing together Father, Son and the Holy Spirit into the Trinity. In Genesis Elohim is heard to say ?Let us create man in our own image”; During the disbursement of mankind at the Tower of Babel, Elohim is heard to say Genesis 11:7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other?. In Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for us??

God the father is the Master planner, God the Son is the Administrator and God the Holy Spirit is the executor. God’s will is administered by Jesus all power has been given to me in Heaven and on earth. And the Holy Spirit is the executor (bringing what God has for you into manifestation out of the invisible to the visible).

Because of my long history with law and justice the Holy Spirit used what I know and explained it as follows:

A Will is a document created by the Owner to be used after death giving clear instructions on the intent of the one handling the Estate in this case the Kingdom.
The Owner appoints an Administrator, in this case Jesus who is responsible for overseeing and undertaking the distribution and proper use of the Estate.

An Administrator

  1. A person responsible for running a business, organization, etc
  2. A person legally appointed to manage and dispose of the estate of an intestate, deceased person, debtor, or other individual, or of an insolvent company.
  3. A person who performs official duties in some sphere, esp. dealing out punishment or giving a religious sacrament.

An Executor

  1. A person or institution appointed by a testator to carry out the terms of their will.
  2. A person who produces something or puts something into effect.

The Holy Spirit is the executor, the power and breath that manifests the Estate which is in the Father’s will which is found in Genesis 1:28 God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.?

In the original plan, man ruled the earth, had health, wealth prosperity and multiplied. In the beginning man was the Administrator. Heaven belongs to God (Psalm 24) and the earth to man. Through Salvation we re-enter and start the process of restoration of what was lost. The Blood of Jesus and accepting Him as Lord and Saviour are administered to you by Jesus and only Jesus as He has Administrative Rights.
At the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Act 1:7-8) we get the power and gifts to enable us restore the Kingdom and witness to multiply the Kingdom. We are responsible for bringing Heaven down to earth, the invisible to visible.


This name is also in plural. The name means Master. Jesus applied all these names to Himself. In Genesis 2: Abraham referred to God as the Owner of his life. It is important to know that there are many other religions that use the name Adonai, and therefore have to acknowledge Jesus as your Master.

Scripture references: Psalm 110:1; Matthew 22:41-45 and Matthew 7:21


This means Eternal loving one. This is the name we use as Jehovah which is the Covenant Keeping God. When Moses asked whom shall I say sent me?, Jehovah (all three )answered I am that I am or I will be what I will be. So whenever you use the name Jehovah as a prefix they become what you want them to be. Jesus referred to Himself as I am the Bread of Life, I am the Good shepherd, I am your Healer. Every time you see “I am” you see Jehovah the The word Jehovah is derived from the word Hoveh I am that I am a state of being and what he is saying within myself is life and existence.

These first three names reveal the Sovereignty of God and His Glory.

Some homework since I have not explained everything. I pray the Holy Spirit explains them to you.

Example: Jehovah Jireh means Jehovah is seen and is my provision. Where there is no vision there is no provision you cannot ask God for what you have not seen. In the case of Abraham as he went up to sacrifice Isaac, he said to his son ?The Lord will provide?, he had already seen his provision from God.

Genesis 2:6 Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and placed it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them went on together, 7 Isaac spoke up and said to his father Abraham, Father?

Yes, my son? Abraham replied.

The fire and wood are here, Isaac said, ?but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?

8 Abraham answered, God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son. And the two of them went on together. 13 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram[a] caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, ?On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.

Of – O is for Omega
York – Y is for Yahweh
Went – W is for the Way
To – T is for the Truth
Battle – B is for Banner or Victory
Imanuel – I is for Emmanuel God with Us
Vain – V is for Victory or Banner

Crist Omega
Deliverer Prince of peace
Emmanuel Q
Friend Reedemer
God Saviour
Healer Truth
Jehovah Victory
King of king Yeshua
Lord of Lords/Lion of the Tribe of Judah Z
