(Manoah means rest) (Judges 13:17--Then Manoah said to the Angel of the Lord, “What is Your name, THAT WHEN YOUR WORDS COME TO PASS WE MAY HONOR YOU?) (Ps.66:2--Sing out the HONOR of HIS NAME; Make HIS PRAISE GLORIOUS. (3) Say to God, HOW AWESOME are YOUR WORKS! Through the GREATNESS of YOUR POWER YOUR ENEMIES SHALL SUBMIT THEMSELVES to YOU. (4) ALL THE EARTH shall WORSHIP YOU; They shall sing PRAISES to YOUR NAME.) (Ps.135:3--PRAISE the LORD, for the LORD is GOOD; Sing PRAISES to HIS NAME, for it is PLEASANT. (4) For the LORD has CHOSEN JACOB for HIMSELF, ISRAEL for HIS SPECIAL TREASURE.)
(Ps. 24:6--This is JACOB, the GENERATION of THOSE who SEEK HIM, who SEEK YOUR FACE.) (Gen.32:27--So He said to him, “WHAT IS YOUR NAME?” And he said JACOB.” (28) And He said, “YOUR NAME SHALL NO LONGER BE CALLED JACOB, but ISRAEL; for you have STRUGGLED with GOD and WITH MEN, and have PREVAILED.) (Exodus 19:5--Now therefore, if you will obey My voice and keep MY COVENANT, then you will be a SPECIAL TREASURE to Me ABOVE ALL THE PEOPLE for ALL THE EARTH IS MINE. (6) And you shall be to ME a KINGDOM of PRIESTS and a HOLY NATION. THESE are THE WORDS which you shall speak to the CHILDREN of ISRAEL.)
(1Peter 2:6--Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, “Behold, I LAY IN ZION a CHIEF CORNERSTONE, elect, precious, and he who BELIEVES on HIM will BY NO MEANS BE PUT TO SHAME. (7) Therefore, to you who BELIEVE, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient, THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, HAS BECOME the CHIEF CORNERSTONE, (8) and a STONE of STUMBLING and a ROCK of OFFENSE. They STUMBLE, being DISOBEDIENT to THE WORD to which they also were appointed.) (Rom.9:32--WHY? Because they DID NOT SEEK IT BY FAITH, but as it were, BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW; For they STUMBLED at that STUMBLING STONE. (33) As it is written: Behold, I LAY IN ZION a STUMBLING STONE and ROCK of OFFENSE, and whoever BELIEVES on HIM WILL NOT be PUT TO SHAME.)
(Returning to 1 Peter 2:9--But you are a CHOSEN GENERATION, a ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, a HOLY NATION, HIS OWN SPECIAL PEOPLE, that you may proclaim THE PRAISES of HIM who called you out of DARKNESS into HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT; (10) Who once were not a people but are now THE PEOPLE OF GOD, who had not OBTAINED MERCY but NOW HAVE OBTAINED MERCY.)
Ps.65:1--PRAISE is awaiting You, O God in ZION; and to YOU the VOW shall be PERFORMED. (2) O You who HEAR PRAYER, to YOU ALL FLESH WILL COME.)
(Ps.21:2--You have given him His HEART’S DESIRE, and have not withheld the request of his lips. (3) For You meet Him with the BLESSINGS of GOODNESS; You set a CROWN of PURE GOLD upon HIS HEAD. (4) He asked LIFE from YOU, and You GAVE IT TO HIM--LENGTH OF DAYS FOREVER and EVER. (5) HIS GLORY is GREAT in YOUR SALVATION; HONOR and MAJESTY You have placed upon Him. (6) For You have made Him MOST BLESSED FOREVER; You have made Him exceedingly glad with YOUR PRESENCE. (7) For the King trusts in the Lord. And through the MERCY of the Most High HE SHALL NOT BE MOVED.)
Ps.67:3--Let the people’s PRAISE You, O God; Let ALL the peoples PRAISE You. (4) Oh let THE NATIONS BE GLAD and SING for JOY! For You shall JUDGE the people RIGHTEOUSLY, and GOVERN THE NATIONS ON EARTH. (6) Then the EARTH shall yield her INCREASE; God our own God, SHALL BLESS US. (7) God shall BLESS us, and ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH SHALL FEAR HIM.)
(Rom.2:7--ETERNAL LIFE to those who by PATIENT CONTINUANCE in DOING GOOD SEEK for GLORY, HONOR, and IMMORTALITY.) (Ps.67:1--God be MERCIFUL to us and BLESS us, and CAUSE HIS FACE to SHINE UPON US, (2) that YOUR WAY MAY BE KNOWN ON EARTH, YOUR SALVATION AMONG ALL NATIONS.) (Ps.105:4--SEEK the LORD and HIS STRENGTH; SEEK HIS FACE EVERMORE. (5) Remember His MARVELOUS WORKS which He has done, HIS WONDERS, and the JUDGMENTS of HIS MOUTH. (6) O SEED of ABRAHAM, His servant, You CHILDREN of JACOB, HIS CHOSEN ONES! (7) He is the Lord our God; HIS JUDGMENTS are in ALL THE EARTH.(8) He has REMEMBERED HIS COVENANT FOREVER, THE WORD which HE COMMANDED FOR A THOUSAND GENERATIONS, (9) THE COVENANT which HE MADE with ABRAHAM, and HIS OATH to ISAAC, (10) And CONFIRMED it to JACOB for a STATUTE, to ISRAEL for an EVERLASTING COVENANT.)
(Ps.111:3--His WORK is HONORABLE and GLORIOUS, and HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS ENDURES FOREVER. (4) He has made His WONDERFUL WORKS to be remembered; The Lord is GRACIOUS and FULL of COMPASSION. (5) He has given FOOD to those who FEAR Him; HE WILL EVER BE MINDFUL OF HIS COVENANT. (6) He has declared to HIS PEOPLE the POWER OF HIS WORKS, in GIVING THEM the HERITAGE of THE NATIONS. (9) He has sent REDEMPTION to HIS PEOPLE; He has COMMANDED HIS COVENANT FOREVER; HOLY and AWESOME is HIS NAME.) (Heb.8:10--For THIS is the COVENANT that I will make with THE HOUSE of ISRAEL after those days says the Lord: I will put MY LAWS in their mind and write them on their HEARTS; and I WILL BE THEIR GOD and THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. (11) NONE of them shall TEACH his NEIGHBOR and NONE his BROTHER, saying KNOW the LORD, for ALL shall KNOW ME from the LEAST of THEM to the GREATEST of THEM.)
(John 17:1,b--Father, the hour has come, GLORIFY Your SON that YOUR SON also may GLORIFY YOU, (2) as You have GIVEN HIM AUTHORITY OVER ALL FLESH, that He should give ETERNAL LIFE to AS MANY as YOU have given Him. (3) And THIS is ETERNAL LIFE, that they may KNOW YOU, the ONLY TRUE GOD, and JESUS CHRIST whom YOU have SENT.)
(Returning to Heb.8:12--For I will be MERCIFUL to their UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, and THEIR SINS and their LAWLESS DEEDS I will REMEMBER NO MORE. (13) In that He says, A NEW COVENANT, He has made the FIRST OBSOLETE. Now what is becoming OBSOLETE and GROWING OLD is ready to VANISH AWAY.)
(Isaiah 12:5--Sing to the Lord, for He has done excellent things; THIS IS KNOWN IN ALL THE EARTH. (6) Cry out and shout, O INHABITANTS of ZION, for GREAT is THE HOLY ONE of ISRAEL in YOUR MIDST.)
(Then MOSES said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of ISRAEL and say to them, “The God of YOUR FATHERS has SENT me to you and they say to me, WHAT IS HIS NAME: What shall I say to them? (14) And God said to MOSES; “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of ISRAEL, “I AM has SENT me to you. (15) Moreover God said to MOSES, Thus you shall say to the CHILDREN of ISRAEL: ‘THE LORD GOD OF YOUR FATHERS, the GOD of ABRAHAM, the GOD of ISAAC, and the GOD of JACOB, has SENT me to you. THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER, and THIS IS MY MEMORIAL to ALL GENERATIONS.)
(Ps.105:4--SEEK the LORD and HIS STRENGTH; SEEK HIS FACE EVERMORE. (5) Remember His MARVELOUS WORKS which He has done, HIS WONDERS, and the JUDGMENTS of HIS MOUTH. (6) O SEED of ABRAHAM, His servant, You CHILDREN of JACOB, HIS CHOSEN ONES! (7) He is the Lord our God; HIS JUDGMENTS are in ALL THE EARTH.(8) He has REMEMBERED HIS COVENANT FOREVER, THE WORD which HE COMMANDED FOR A THOUSAND GENERATIONS, (9) THE COVENANT which HE MADE with ABRAHAM, and HIS OATH to ISAAC, (10) And CONFIRMED it to JACOB for a STATUTE, to ISRAEL for an EVERLASTING COVENANT.)
(Heb.2:16--For indeed He DOES NOT GIVE AID to ANGELS, but HE DOES GIVE AID to the SEED of ABRAHAM.) (Gal.3:29--And IF you are CHRIST’S, THEN you are ABRAHAM’S SEED, and HEIRS according to THE PROMISE.) (Rom.4:13--For THE PROMISE that he would be THE HEIR of THE WORLD was NOT to ABRAHAM or to his SEED through the law, but through THE RIGHTEOUSNESS of FAITH.)
(Deut.32:9--For the LORD’S PORTION is HIS PEOPLE; JACOB IS THE PLACE OF HIS INHERITANCE.) (Ps.135:4--For the LORD has CHOSEN JACOB for HIMSELF, ISRAEL for HIS SPECIAL TREASURE.) (Is.41:8--But you, ISRAEL, are My servant JACOB, whom I HAVE CHOSEN, The DESCENDANTS of ABRAHAM MY FRIEND. (9) You whom I have TAKEN from THE ENDS OF THE EARTH, and called from its farthest regions, and said to you. You are My servant I HAVE CHOSEN you and HAVE NOT CAST you away; (10) Fear not, FOR I AM WITH YOU; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will STRENGTHEN you, YES, I WILL HELP you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.)
Ps.47:2--For the Lord MOST HIGH is AWESOME; He is A GREAT KING over ALL THE EARTH) (Ps.33:11--The COUNSEL of the LORD stands FOREVER, THE PLANS OF HIS HEART to ALL GENERATIONS. (12) Blessed is the NATION whose GOD IS THE LORD, and THE PEOPLE whom HE HAS CHOSEN as HIS OWN INHERITANCE.) (John 16:16--You DID NOT CHOOSE ME, but I CHOSE YOU and appointed you that you should go and BEAR MUCH FRUIT, and that your fruit SHOULD REMAIN, that whatever you ASK THE FATHER in MY NAME HE MAY GIVE YOU.) (Is.27:6--Those who come He shall cause to TAKE ROOT in JACOB, ISRAEL shall BLOSSOM and BUD and FILL the FACE OF THE WORLD WITH FRUIT.) (John 16:8--By THIS My FATHER is GLORIFIED, that you BEAR MUCH FRUIT; so you will BE MY DISCIPLES.)
(Returning to Judges 13: 15--And the Angel of the Lord said to him, ‘WHY DO YOU ASK MY NAME, seeing it is WONDERFUL?) (Is. 9:6--For unto us a child is born, Unto us a Son is given; and THE GOVERNMENT will be UPON HIS SHOULDERS. And HIS NAME WILL BE CALLED WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE of PEACE. (7) Of the increase of His GOVERNMENT and PEACE THERE will be NO END, upon the throne of DAVID and over HIS KINGDOM, to ORDER IT and ESTABLISH IT with JUDGMENT and JUSTICE, from this time forward, even FOREVER. The ZEAL of the LORD of HOSTS will PERFORM THIS.) (Zech.8:2--Thus says the Lord: I am ZEALOUS for ZION with great ZEAL: With great fervor I am ZEALOUS for her. (3) Thus says the Lord: I will RETURN to ZION, and DWELL IN THE MIDST of JERUSALEM. Jerusalem shall be called the CITY of TRUTH, the MOUNTAIN of the LORD of HOSTS, the HOLY MOUNTAIN.)
(2 Chron. 6:5-Since the day that I brought MY PEOPLE out of the land of EGYPT, I have CHOSEN NO CITY from any tribe of ISRAEL in which to build a house, THAT MY NAME MIGHT BE THERE, nor did I CHOOSE ANY MAN to be RULER over MY PEOPLE ISRAEL. (6) But I have CHOSEN JERUSALM, that MY NAME MAY BE THERE, and I have CHOSEN DAVID TO BE OVER MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.) (Ps.132:13--For the Lord has CHOSEN ZION; He has desired IT for HIS HABITATION; (14) THIS is MY RESTING PLACE FOREVER; HERE I WILL DWELL, for I HAVE DESIRED IT.) (Ps.135:21--Blessed be the LORD out of ZION, who DWELLS in JERUSALEM.)
Ps.102:12--But YOU, O Lord, shall endure FOREVER, and the REMEMBRANCE of YOUR NAME to ALL GENERATIONS. (13) You will ARISE and have MERCY on ZION, for the time to FAVOR her, yes, the SET TIME has COME. (14) For Your servants take PLEASURE in her STONES and show favor to her dust. (15) So THE NATIONS shall fear THE NAME of THE LORD, and ALL the KINGS of the EARTH YOUR GLORY. (16) For the LORD SHALL BUILD UP ZION: He shall APPEAR IN HIS GLORY. (17) He shall regard the PRAYER of the DESTITUTE, and shall NOT despise their PRAYER. (18) This will be WRITTEN FOR THE GENERATION TO COME, that a people YET TO BE CREATED may PRAISE THE LORD. (19) For He has LOOKED down from the HEIGHT of HIS SANCTUARY; From heaven the Lord viewed the earth. (20) To hear the GROANING of the PRISONER, to LOOSE those APPOINTED to DEATH, (21) To DECLARE THE NAME OF THE LORD in ZION, and HIS PRAISE in JERUSALM. (24) I said, O my God, DO NOT TAKE ME AWAY in the MIDST OF MY DAYS; YOUR YEARS ARE THROUGHOUT ALL GENERATIONS.)
(Ps.65:1--PRAISE is awaiting You, O God, in ZION; and to YOU the VOW shall BE PERFORMED. (2) O YOU who HEAR PRAYER, to YOU ALL FLESH WILL COME. (5) By AWESOME DEEDS in RIGHTEOUSNESS YOU WILL ANSWER US, O God of OUR SALVATION, YOU who are THE CONFIDENCE of ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.) (Ps.2:6--Yet I have set My King on My HOLY HILL of ZION. (7) I will declare the decree: the Lord has said to Me. YOU ARE MY SON, today I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (8) Ask of Me and I will GIVE YOU the NATIONS for YOUR INHERITANCE and THE ENDS OF THE EARTH FOR YOUR POSSESSION.) (Ps.82:8--Arise, O God, JUDGE the EARTH; FOR YOU SHALL INHERIT ALL NATIONS.)
(1 Kings 8:43--HEAR in heaven YOUR DWELLING PLACE, and do according to ALL FOR WHICH the FOREIGNER CALLS TO YOU, that ALL PEOPLES OF THE EARTH MAY KNOW YOUR NAME and FEAR YOU, as DO YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL, and that they may KNOW that THIS TEMPLE which I have built is CALLED BY YOUR NAME.) (Ps.48:8--As we have heard, so we have seen in the CITY of the LORD of HOSTS, in the CITY of OUR GOD: GOD will ESTABLISH it FOREVER. (9) We have thought, O GOD, on Your loving kindness, in the midst of YOUR TEMPLE. (10) According to YOUR NAME, O GOD, so is Your PRAISE to THE ENDS OF THE EARTH; Your RIGHT HAND is FULL of RIGHTEOUSNESS. (11) Let MOUNT ZION REJOICE, let the daughters of JUDAH be GLAD, because of YOUR JUDGMENTS. (12) Walk about ZION and go all around her. Count her bulwarks, consider her palaces; That you may TELL IT TO THE GENERATION FOLLOWING. (14) For THIS IS GOD, our GOD FOREVER and EVER. HE will be OUR GUIDE even to DEATH.) (Exodus
(Exodus 15:2--The Lord is my STRENGTH and SONG and He has become my SALVATION; HE is my GOD, and I will PRAISE HIM,. (3) The LORD is a MAN OF WAR; THE LORD IS HIS NAME. (6) YOUR RIGHT HAND, O LORD, has become GLORIOUS IN POWER; YOUR RIGHT HAND, O LORD has DASHED THE ENEMY IN PIECES.) (1 Sam.2:19--The ADVERSARIES of the LORD shall be BROKEN in PIECES; from HEAVEN HE will THUNDER AGAINST THEM. The LORD will JUDGE THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.)
(Heb.1:13--But to which of the angels has He ever said: SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, TILL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES YOUR FOOTSTOOL.) (Heb. 8:1-- Now this is the MAIN POINT of the things We are saying: We have such a HIGH PRIEST, who is seated at THE RIGHT HAND of the THRONE of the MAJESTY in the HEAVENS. (2) A MINISTER of the SANCTUARY and of THE TRUE TABERNACLE which THE LORD ERECTED and NOT MAN, (3) For every HIGH PRIEST is appointed to offer both GIFTS and SACRIFICES. Therefore it was NECESSARY that this ONE also have something to OFFER. (4) For IF HE WERE ON EARTH, HE would NOT be a PRIEST, since there are priests who OFFER the GIFTS according to THE LAW; )
(Heb.10:1--For THE LAW, having a SHADOW of the GOOD THINGS TO COME) (Heb.9:11--But CHRIST CAME as HIGH PRIEST of THE GOOD THINGS TO COME, with the GREATER and MORE PERFECT TABERNACLE NOT MADE WITH HANDS, that is NOT OF THIS CREATION.) (Returning to Heb.10:1--and not the VERY IMAGE of THE THINGS can NEVER with these same sacrifices, which they OFFER CONTINUALLY year by year, make those who approach PERFECT. For THEN would they not have ceased to be OFFERED? For the worshipers, once PURGED would have had NO MORE CONSICIOUSNESS of SINS. (3) But in THOSE sacrifices there is a REMEMBRANCE of SINS every year. (4) For it is NOT POSSIBLE that the BLOOD of BULLS and GOATS could TAKE AWAY SINS.)
(1 Corin.2:6--However, we speak WISDOM among those who are MATURE, yet NOT the WISDOM of this AGE, nor of the RULERS of this AGE, who are coming to nothing. (7) But we speak THE WISDOM OF GOD in a MYSTERY, the HIDDEN WISDOM which GOD ORDAINED BEFORE THE AGES FOR OUR GLORY, (8) which NONE of the RULERS of THIS AGE KNEW; for HAD THEY KNOWN, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE CRUCIFIED THE LORD OF GLORY.) ( Ps.24:8--WHO is this KING of GLORY? The LORD STRONG and MIGHTY, THE LORD MIGHTY IN BATTLE. (9) Lift up your heads, O YOU GATES! And lift them up, you EVERLASTING DOORS! And THE KING OF GLORY SHALL COME IN. (10) WHO is this KING OF GLORY? THE LORD OF HOSTS, HE IS THE KING OF GLORY.)
(Returning to Heb.2:5--Therefore, when He CAME INTO THE WORLD, HE SAID: “Sacrifice and offering You DID NOT DESIRE, but a BODY You have prepared for Me. (6) In burnt offerings and SACRIFICES FOR SIN YOU HAD NO PLEASURE. (7) Then I SAID, “Behold, I HAVE COME in the VOLUME of THE BOOK it is WRITTEN of ME--TO DO YOUR WILL, O GOD.”)
( Ps.41:6--Sacrifice and offering YOU DID NOT DESIRE; My ears You have opened; Burnt offering and SIN OFFERING, YOU DID NOT REQUIRE. (7) Then I SAID, “Behold, I COME in THE SCROLL of THE BOOK it is WRITTEN of ME. (8) I DELIGHT TO DO YOUR WILL , O my GOD, and your law is WITHIN my HEART. (9) I have proclaimed the GOOD NEWS of RIGHTEOUSNESS in the GREAT CONGREGATION; in deed, I DO NOT RESTRAIN MY LIPS. (10,B) I have NOT CONCEALED YOUR LOVINGKINDNESS and YOUR TRUTH from the GREAT CONGREGATION.) (John 4:23--But the hour is coming and now is when the true worshipers will worship in SPIRIT and TRUTH; for the FATHER is seeking such to worship HIM. (24) GOD is SPIRIT, and those who worship HIM must worship in SPIRIT and TRUTH.)
(Ps.22:25--My PRAISE shall be of YOU in THE GREAT CONGREGATION; I will PAY MY VOWS before those who FEAR HIM. (26) The poor shall eat and be SATISFIED; those WHO SEEK HIM WILL PRAISE THE LORD. (27) ALL THE ENDS OF THE WORLD SHALL REMEMBER and TURN TO THE LORD, and ALL THE FAMILIES of THE NATIONS shall WORSHIP BEFORE YOU. (28) For THE KINGDOM is THE LORD’S and HE RULES OVER THE NATIONS.) (John 6:32,b--But MY FATHER gives you the TRUE BREAD from HEAVEN. (33) For the BREAD of GOD is HE who comes DOWN from HEAVEN and gives LIFE TO THE WORLD. (51) I AM THE LIVING BREAD which came down form HEAVEN. If anyone eats of THIS BREAD, he will LIVE FOREVER; and the BREAD that I shall give is MY FLESH, which I SHALL GIVE FOR THE LIFE OF THE WORLD.)
(Zeph.12:10--And I WILL POUR on THE HOUSE of DAVID and on the INHABITANTS of JERUSALEM the SPIRIT OF GRACE and SUPPLICATION; then they will LOOK ON ME whom they have PIERCED; they will MOURN for HIM as one MOURNS for HIS ONLY SON, and GRIEVE for HIM as one grieves for a FIRSTBORN.) (Zeph.14:8-And in that day it shall be that LIVING WATERS shall flow from JERUSALEM, (9) and the LORD shall be KING OVER ALL THE EARTH. In that day it shall be--”THE LORD IS one, and HIS NAME IS ONE.) (John 7:38--He who believes in ME, as the SCRIPTURE HAS SAID, OUT OF HIS HEART will FLOW RIVERS OF LIVING WATER.) (Hab.2:14--For THE EARTH will be FILLED with the KNOWLEDGE of THE GLORY of THE LORD as THE WATERS COVER THE SEA.) (Ps.46:10--Be STILL, and KNOW that I AM GOD; I WILL BE EXALTED among the NATIONS, I WILL BE EXALTED IN THE EARTH.)
(1 John 4:13--By THIS we KNOW that we ABIDE in HIM and HE in US, because HE HAS GIVEN US OF HIS SPIRIT. (14) And we have seen (in the word) and TESTIFY that the FATHER has SENT the SON as SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.) 9John 3:16--For GOD SO LOVED the WORLD that HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that whoever BELIEVES IN HIM should NOT PERISH but have EVERLASTING LIFE. (17) For GOD DID NOT SEND HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD, but THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED.)
(Ps.2:6--Yet I have set My King on My HOLY HILL of ZION. (7) I will declare the decree: the Lord has said to me YOU ARE MY SON, today, I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU. (8) ASK OF ME and I WILL GIVE YOU the NATIONS for YOUR INHERITANCE and the ENDS OF THE EARTH for YOUR POSSESSION.)

To ask the Angel of the Lord - What is His Name? - is asking something like how many planets are there in the universe? The very distinct names of God are the indications of the very many facets of His character and purposes, which is why we are encouraged to pray in the name of the Lord, and to invoke His names in prayer. They serve to remind us that God IS the very essence of all that we need; and more than sufficient to provide the help that we seek. A most excellent article, and one that reminds us of the One on Whom we can and must depend! Blessings, Sharon.
Your article reminded me of a collage I did several years ago about God's Name. I'll send that to your email address. Yes, we know our Father by so many Names because He is our all in all and touches our lives in so many different ways. Together, He and HIS SON are our Teachers, Healers, Role Models, Family Members, Comforters, Leaders, Protectors, and on and on and on. And, most importantly, His dear Son is our SAVIOR! I would say there are MANY facets to their Names! How wonderful the mighty King of Kings and Counselor can also be our "Daddy" who comforts us in the rough times. PRAISE HIM FOREVER!!!! With great love, Peggy
Sharon is a name of Hebrew origin meaning, "princess, the one who laugh" has a glowing personality, is contented with her life and one who inspires others to succeed. The name 'Sharon' also means special or adorable so you should be happy to have such a name! To me it means: S is for special, you are, you know! H is for happiness, you always bring. A is for accomplished, in all that you do. R is for righteous, you know when you're right. O is for outlook, pleasing to all. N is for natural, the genuine side of you.
