CONTENTS

PART ONE: OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST

1. THE NAME OF JESUS

Jesus was a popular name for new baby boys at the time Mary had a son, but within a few decades it became virtually unused because it was special to Christians. Still today it is the sweetest of our Lord’s names because it is His personal name.

2. THE TITLE “LORD”

When people addressed Jesus as Lord in the New Testament, that title demonstrated an attitude of either respect or reverence. But in the early church, Christians were martyred because they affirmed “Jesus is Lord. ” To there “Lord” meant only one thing – Jesus was the Jehovah of the Old Testament.

3. THE OFFICE OF CHRIST

Throughout the pages of the Old Testament, the prophets wrote of a coming Messiah who functioned as prophet, priest, and king. The name “Christ” meant “anointed.” He was anointed to that office. But He was more than that! Paul revered this office and made it his favorite name of Jesus and the foundation to the Christian’s position in grace.

PART TWO: GROUPINGS OF THE NAMES OF JESUS CHRIST

4. THE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHETIC NAMES OF JESUS

Hidden in the pages of law, history, poetry, and prophecy is a myriad of names and titles of Jesus. He is revealed in every book by type and teaching. Among the many Old Testament prophetic names of Jesus are Shiloh, the Prophet, the Branch, the Desire of all Nations, the Ensign for the Peoples, and El Shaddai.

5. THE SALVATIONAL NAMES OF JESUS

Many of the names of Jesus reveal aspects of His principal work of redeeming the lost. Some of them focus upon His work and, therefore, He is the Redeemer, Saviour, and Mediator. Others call attention primarily to His Person; as such, Jesus is the Lamb of God and the Propitiation for our sins. Still others reveal the mystery of the One who both produces salvation and is Himself our salvation. In this regard, He is the Last Adam, the Second Man, and the Author of Eternal Salvation.

6. THE BIRTH NAMES OF CHRIST

When it comes to naming babies, it seems everybody has some suggestion about a name. It was no different with Jesus. Hundreds of years before He was born, people began calling the Christ child by a variety of names. By the time He was born, He had been called the Dayspring from on High, Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace, and Immanuel.

7. THE SERVICE NAMES OF CHRIST

Jesus came not to be served but to serve. As a result, many of His names and titles emphasize His qualities of service. He is the Creator and Sustainer of life. Several names describe Him as the teacher and sovereign of mankind. And then of course there are those names which focus on how He assists us in living the victorious Christian life.

8. THE SONSHIP NAMES OF CHRIST

Jesus delighted to call God His Father, and so, it is not surprising there are at least nineteen sonship names of Jesus. Three are particularly important when it comes to understanding who Jesus is. He called Himself “Son of Man,” but He was also the Son of God and the only begotten Son.

9. THE GODHEAD NAMES OF CHRIST

Several names and titles of Jesus express the uniqueness of His nature and have important theological implications in the study of Christology. These include the Image of God, the Firstborn, the Beloved, the Alpha and Omega, and the Logos (Word).

10. THE JEHOVISTIC TITLES OF CHRIST

The name Jehovah was so revered by the Jews that they never uttered it. It was the name of the One who introduced Himself to Moses as I AM THAT I AM. The proof that Jesus was Jehovah is the fact that He used that divine title in eight ways in the Gospel of John.




11. THE. CHURCH NAMES OF CHRIST

Jesus promised He would build His church, and so, one would expect to find Him closely identified with that church. Several names of Christ have special significance in that they reveal His relation to His church. These titles include Bridegroom, Shepherd, Head, Vine, Stone, Temple, and Gardener.

12. THE APOCALYPTIC NAMES OF CHRIST

The final book of the New Testament offers the fullest revelation of Jesus Christ in Scripture. It is not surprising, then, that John uses at least seventy-three different names of Jesus to describe important truths about Jesus. This chapter takes a closer look at several of the more significant names in the Revelation.

pc56 Just Say no to Witchcraft! Understanding Witchcraft. we examine witchcraft in the light of the Bible, your will or accepting God's will.

Topics: What is Witchcraft? | How does one practice witchcraft? | The Importance of Rejecting Witchcraft | How do we reject it? | Conclusion.
Excerpt: We must worship that God, because He is our Creator, and we must seek his moral guidance in life, and for whatever matter that we need or want, we must go to Him first to see if it is what we should seek and ask God for (if it is His will for us). Having established this, witchcraft is to seek spirits or occult principles to get what we want (our own will).

  1. Hello and thank you for your work.

    I have just downloaded “towns – the names of Jesus” into MySword. I followed your instructions and deleted the underscore. I am looking forward to being about to review that and also to see some of your other offers.

    However, when I went to access the MySword module on my handset, I receive a request to “Select Modules Path”.
    The three options are: 1) Default Data Path; 2) Android SD Card Data Path (deleted upon uninstall) and 3) Custom Data Path.

    However, when I select any of the three the response is: “Creation of data path failed”.

    Also, inside a text-box the following is displayed “/mnt/sdcard/mysword”.

    I have not performed any other functions or procedures and now i cannot get back into MySword. Are you able to give me any guidance as to what I can do to access mysword and read the newly installed module?
    Thanks and Blessings,
    Pastor Larry

  2. Hello again!
    I solved my problem from the previous post, by shutting my phone down and restarting it. So, I am writing to ask that you ignore my request. I plan to review this material and will look then look for more.

    I came across your website while looking for the Thompson Chain reference for Androin MySword. If you have any references for that, please let me know. I tried the one I found and it was not compatible with my phone – Samsung Charge. I dont know why.
    Much thanks and blessings,
    Pastor Larry

    1. Hi Pastor, I will try to upload Thompson Chain today. It could be that the module was mal-formed somehow (incorrectly created). If you have requests for any module, please go to the http://www.twmodules.com website (which is mine also), and anything on there that is not a premium module (only about 40 out of 1500), I will quickly make it into a MySword module and post it. I am slowly working on getting those modules converted to mySword. So it is a lot of work besides adding 25 new modules to TheWord each week (and converting a number of those into e-Sword to boot!). But slowly I am getting into MySword conversions.
