The Name of the Lord: house and home

Genesis 13:3-4 is one of the few sources where we find a name of God. We have treated as personal name GOD, LORD, YAHWEH, EL, a number of compound names with EL (SHADDAI, OLAM, ELYON) and a number of compound names with Yahweh. The difference between a title and a name is often blurred: Queen Elizabeth, Yahweh Elohim, and Governor Zerubbabel show this split. Beyond the word – name – used to address someone is the person, a distinct reality. Isaac and Abram worshipped by calling on God.

And he went on his journeys from the south even to Beth–el, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Beth–el and Hai; Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the Lord. Gen. 26:25

Genesis 13:4
Unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first: and there Abram called on the name of the Lord.

David and Solomon realized that the divine name is the person. One calls on God, not merely the given name.

If there is a name that is going to be the means of salvation then it is not just the label but the person, and in this case the man Yeshua.

In that name we conduct our lives.

In that name we are safe
