1 | WHAT’S IN A NAME?

Mark Helvadjian - March 17, 2019

Have you ever wondered what’s in a name? More than a label, in ancient writings, a name represented the very nature of a person, you could say, it represented the very essence of who they were. And guess what - God has a name too - in fact, He has many.

In this new series, we take a look at how God has revealed who He is, and His promises to us, through His Names and the profound and far-reaching implications this has on who we are!

3 | JEHOVAH

Wendy Howson - March 31, 2019

In our series ‘Revealed’, it’s wonderful to know that the actual, personal name of God is ‘Yahweh’ in Hebrew or ‘Jehovah’ in English and that it means 'I AM' and ‘the Revealing One’ - the One who reveals his character, his essence, and his ways intimately and individually to us!

The life, death and resurrection of Jesus revealed the perfect fulfilment of ‘Jehovah Saves’, the true meaning of Jeshua.

Mark Helvadjian - April 7, 2019

When we think about God being our provider, we often think of providing for our daily needs. And while that is true, we learn in the story of Abraham and Issac, that Jehovah Jireh provides for more – he provides for our steps of faith. As we unpack the story together, we learn 4 ways in which we walk in the provision God has for us.

God has a Name by John Mark Comer  From the Author  Many of us ache for relationship with God, yet feel distant and disconnected from him. As if he's more of an idea we believe in our head than a person we relate to. But God has a name: Yahweh.  This one simple idea has the potential to radically alter how you relate to God, not as a doctrine, but as a relational being who responds to you in an elastic, back-and-forth way. Why do we feel this gap between us and God? Could it be that a lot of what we think about God is wrong? Not all wrong, but wrong enough to mess up how we relate to him? What if our "God" is really a projection of our own identity, ideas, and desires? And what if the real God is different, but far better than we could ever imagine? This book is a simple, but profound guide to what God says about himself.  In his signature conversational-but-smart style, John Mark Comer takes the reader line by line through Exodus 34v6-8-Yahweh's self-revelation on Mount Sinai-called by some scholars the one most quoted verse in the Bible, by the Bible. In it, we see who God says he is. It turns out, who God is just might surprise you, and change everything.
