A daily devotional exploring the names of God in scripture. Our website

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.
  2. Topic Introduction with headline.
  3. Scripture
    1. Malachi 1:6
    2. Eternal One: (to the priests who despise the name of the Eternal, Commander of heavenly armies) A son respects his father, and a servant fears[b] his master. If I am your Father, then where is My respect from you? And if I am your glorious Master, then where is your fear of Me? From your self-centered oblivion you ask, “How have we despised Your name?”
  4. Devotional
    1. Most often in the NIV, CEV, King James and other versions, Adonai is translated as “LORD”. The Voice translates it as “glorious Master”. Adonai was spoken when the tetragrammaton YHWH was written.
    2. We don’t understand the concept of Lord the way the people of England did when King James authorized the translation of the Vulgate into a language the common man could understand
      1. Watch TV shows with lords and ladies
      2. Hear about the titles when we hear about Great Britain’s royalty
      3. Still don’t realize the power lords held over their subjects
      4. The title is believed to have come from an old English word meaning “bread keeper”.
      5. Lord refers to someone who has authority, control, or power over others acting like a master, a chief, or a ruler.
      6. In feudal system, the landowners that provided protection, work and food for tenant families
    3. Adonai is one of the seven names the Hebrews used for God that once written could not be erased.
      1. Sacred name of God, Lord of lords,
      2. owner of all things
      3. creator of all things
      4. Everything is His
      5. He has authority, control, power over everyone and everything
      6. Creation turns at His bidding
    4. May not understand the term Lord the way those who translated YHWH did
      1. May not feel the weight of lordship the way those in the middle ages did
      2. May not understand the power the lord held over His subjects
      3. We can understand God has authority, control, power over all things
      4. He wants us to recognize who He is as Lord, Adonai
