A Word of Truth from the Desk of Tim Barker
Names of God
What’s in a name?
Everything, of course. Our name gives us connectivity with the world around us. We use it to get people’s attention, and as importantly, they use it to get ours.
Our name also tells people who we are.
What about the name Christian? That’s what the followers of Jesus call themselves. What information can people glean about us when we put a fish symbol on the bumper of our car, or we wear a cross around our neck? And, importantly, do our actions live up to their expectations?
In this book, you will receive in-depth teachings about the ten names of God:
Each of these names presents to us a different aspect of our wonderful and all-powerful Father.
El-Shaddai. Rapha. Nissi. Who is God to you?
He wants to be all of these, and He can be, if you invite Him to be Lord of your life and the Master of your heart. He WILL live up to each one.
When you finish this book, the Name of God will be clearer to you than ever before. And you will learn His name for you as you turn the pages of this book.
You are a Child of the Everlasting King.
A Message from the Desk of Tim Barker:
When my children were born, my wife, Jill, and I thought long and hard about the names we would give them.
Names tell the truth of who you are, and people live up to their names. We wanted to give our girls names of power and truth that they could grow into.
They are adults now, and we feel they’ve met and exceeded our challenge.
When you understand the names of God, you’ll find He will meet and exceed your problems. Give Him a try. He wants to be your strong arm of salvation today.
