Jehovah Chapter Two Worksheet Part Two

Blasphemy of the name of Jehovah was punishable by death.  Even in our own time, the name of Jehovah is never read in the synagogue nor is it ever said aloud by its people.  They substitute the word Adonai, or use a word that means “the name.”

Even when the name was to be written, the scribe who was transcribing would stop, remove their clothes, take a bath, and put on clean clothes.  Before writing they were required to stand and say, “I am now copying the Holy name of God.” A new unused pen and new ink was used to write the name and the pen was promptly broken when the name was written.

Because the Hebrews never spoke God’s name, we don’t really know how to say it. Orthodox Jews still believe one way they will know the Messiah will be His ability to pronounce the name of God. Names of god by Nathan Stone page 25

The Jewish tradition maintains that God’s name is spoken as a breath, the first breath of a newborn as it emerges from the womb.  The last breath a person takes before his eyes are glazed over by the final enemy Christ will crush, death.    Jehovah comes from the Hebrew verb “havah” which means to be; to exist; being; to breathe.  (Pat Mercer Hutchens PHD) The breath of life is the pronunciation of God’s name. I think that is so neat… the first breath of a baby, Alpha, the last breath of a dying man, Omega.   When God breathed the first breath of life into us, He breathed His name.  Is the breath of life that we all have part of His breath? I think that was originally true, but man refused that breath and instead elected to breathe the polluted air of sin. 

Genesis tells us that God used His breath(Holy Spirit) to create the heavens and the earth.

Isaiah 42:5This is what God the LORD says—
the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out, who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:”

In Genesis 6:3 God was talking about the evil people he was about to destroy before the flood. Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with( My spirit will not remain in)humans forever, for they are mortal(corrupt); their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

 2001 Translation An American English Bible Based on the Greek Septuagint says it this wayGod says, I won’t allow MY Breath(spirit) to stay with these men through the age, for they are fleshly.”

 God gives breath to mankind, but will not allow His breath to remain in sinful flesh.

Ezekiel 37:1-14

1.  What does Jehovah say He will use to raise the dry bones of Israel?

Read Ezekiel 37:14 14 I will put my Spirit(breath) in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares the LORD.’”

Ezekiel 37 is the story of the dry bones of apostate Israel being brought to life by the breath of God.  In the same sense, the dry bones of a sinful man are brought to life by his repentance and declaration of belief in Jesus Christ virgin birth as the son of God, His death on the cross for remission of sin, and His resurrection, which He promises to all who believe on Him.

Read John 20:21-23 

2.  What does Jesus do to give the Holy Spirit to the disciples when He appeared to them in the upper room?

Is it possible that Jesus restores the breath of God to us when we are saved by giving us the Holy Spirit?

Through the Holy Spirit we pray, are purified, get understanding of the scriptures, and receive the gifts of the Spirit.  We cannot live the life Christ has ordained for us without the Spirit or breath of God.  The breath of God is totally necessary if we are to pray from the heart.

Ephesians 6:17, 18, ‘Also, accept the helmet of salvation and the sword of [God’s] Breath (God’s word). Pray in every way and always keep begging [God]. Pray at all times in the Breath [of God] and stay awake; don’t give up.’ (2001 Translation, an American English Bible)

Read Psalm 11:7   

3.  Why will the upright see the face of God?

The only way we can see the face of God is to receive Christ and the breath of God, the Holy Spirit, who will clothe us in Christ righteousness, and lead us to live a just and upright life.

Leviticus 19:2

4.  Why are we to be holy?

Paul places focus on Jesus Christ as Lord in 1 Corinthians chapter 1 to point to Him as the same Lord or Yahweh of the Old Testament.

 Read 1 Corinthians 1:2

Read Joel 2:32 

5.   Who are Old and New Testament believers to

call upon?  

Read  Corinthians 1:8

Read Joel 1:15 

6.  How do both the Old and New Testament passages refer to the Day of the LORD?

One of these passages is referring to the day of the LORD before Christ was born yet the New Testament refers to the Day of the LORD with Christ in the role of Jehovah.

Read 1 Corinthians 1:31

Read Jeremiah 9:23-24

7.  Who are Old and New Testament believers to boast in rather than ourselves?

8.  Who is Paul referring to in 1 Corinthians?

Paul is talking about the same LORD Old Testament believers were to boast in.  Both are referring to Jehovah God.  Paul, along with us can boast in Jehovah God, who is also called Jesus Christ.

Read 1 Corinthians 2:16   

Read Isaiah 40:13 

Spirit can be translated as mind, so it really says who can know the mind of the LORD.  Paul is applying this scripture to Christians knowing the “mind of Christ.”  The mind of the LORD and the mind of Christ are the same.

Read Mark 9:36-41

9.  What does Christ say about anyone who uses His name.?

  1. What does it mean to do something in the name of the LORD?

 

Read Luke10:17-20

11.What meaning do you get from these verses?

 

 

The name Jesus gives us will be highly personal.  He will choose it for us, but if you could choose a name which is reflective of your personality or character in Christ, what would it be?

Mine would be Joy, because that is what He has given me.  He gives me the joy of my salvation in times of trouble.  He gives me joy when I persevere in times of stress and problems.  He gives me joy in my rest, my worship, my work, my family, and my friends.

When I was in grade school I had to memorize all the forms of the verb “to be” (am, is, are, was, were, be, being, been, has, have, had, do, does, did, shall, will, would, should, may, might, can, could) These small words are the essence of almighty God.

Jehovah was God, Is God, will always be God.  We are His creation.  He has control of the universe, has always had control and will always be in control.  He should destroy us because of our evil natures, He could do so, He will to those who do not exercise obedience.  But because Jehovah is eternally loving, continuing in His efforts to fulfill His covenants of deliverance and redemption to bring man from utter corruption back into a pure and holy fellowship with himself His plan of redemption and salvation from before the beginning of time will inevitably “BE.”

Jehovah Chapter Two Part Two

Is Jesus Jehovah?

Read Revelations 1:4   

1.What have you learned about the name of Jehovah that applies to what John is saying about Jesus in this Scripture.?

Read Colossians 1:17   

2.What verbs are used in speaking of Christ in these passages?

All the verbs are forms of the verb “to be.”  Paul is saying that Jesus was there when the world was created. 

According to this Scripture, Jesus is before all things. An important concept relates Jesus to both Jehovah as the preexistent one and Elohim as Creator and sustainer of the Universe.

3.How does this scripture relate Jesus to Jehovah? 

4.How does this scripture relate Jesus to Elohim?

Jesus is holding all things together.  As Jehovah, He has the power to do it. As Elohim, He has the love of His Creation at heart and devotes Himself to keeping it running as it should.  Have you ever thought about what would happen if He did not.  Think of the lowly atom.  Jehovah derived the whole plan and Elohim put those little atoms in order.  Ernest Walton and John Cockroft (1932) were the first to split the nucleus in a completely controlled manner. What happens when this tiny atom is split has enabled mankind to build a weapon that has the potential of destroying all life on earth.  If Jesus decided to stop holding the uncountable jillions of atoms of the Universe together the whole thing would disappear in the greatest fireworks show of eternity. Christ holds all things together, from the stars in the great Universe to me and my runty little black dog. 

Paul wrote in present tense when speaking of Christ existence which establishes the timeless fact of His Diety.  He created the Universe.  He is the sustainer of His creation.  (in Him all things hold together.)  The sun, moon, and stars maintain their orbits by Him. Gravity holds us to the earth.  Photosynthesis produces the necessary gases for life to thrive on the planet.  The Universe is maintained by Him, and was maintained by Him even while He was on the earth. (McDonald Commentary)

Read Colossians 1:18  Not only is He the beginning of all earthly, temporal creations, but He is the beginning of spiritual life.  He is the first to die a physical death that did not require a second death.  Elijah raised the boy from the dead, but that boy would one day die again.  Christ rose in a glorified body that does not require a second bout with death…

5.What is Christ relationship to the church?

This Scripture says Jesus is the firstborn of the dead.  He is the only one who has died and been raised to new life in a glorified body today.  When Christ comes to take the church, we too will leave our corrupted flesh and receive the glorified body that is like Christ. I John 3:22 “Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,[a(or when it is made known)] we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.”

Read Philippians 3:20-21 

6.What power will Jesus use to transform our bodies?

He could only use this power if He were Jehovah.  He could only have this power if He were Elohim. He will use this power on resurrection day to free us from the plagues that bedevil our mortal bodies, as he finally and forever reconciles the Universe to Himself and restores its original purpose to glorify Jehovah. All praise and glory to Him who deserves it.

We will be free from sin, morally like Jesus.  We who belong to Him can trust that He will keep His covenant that we shall also rise from the dead with a glorified body like His.

Read John 8:57-59

7.Who did Jesus say he was? 

What name of God is defined by the statement “I AM WHO I AM?”

Jesus made His claim to be eternal Jehovah here.  He called Himself “I AM” totally enraging the religious rulers, who completely understood what He was saying. Yet they were totally unable to understand the divine truth of what He said.  He had been with God the Father throughout eternity.  There was never a time when he had not existed. 

Read John 17:5  

8. What is Jesus asking for?

 Jesus had left the honor and glory He had with the Father when he came to earth and took on weak human flesh.  The world did not know Him. He does not have that glory on earth as a human being.  It sounds like He longs for the happiness, the blessings, the identity He enjoyed with the Father and he asks for it to be restored.  Vernon McGee says “He emptied Himself of the prerogatives of deity; He laid aside his glory.”  He was still 100% Jehovah, 100% Elohim, still holding the Universe together while on earth as 100% man, but letting go of the glory that was His.

Read John 10:30,

9. How does Jesus identify Himself in this verse?

10. What is He claiming to be?

John 13:19-20

11.Who is Jesus claiming to be in this passage?

Jesus is also saying that when His word, His message is received, regardless of who gives the message; His word is true.  Judas went out and preached the word.  Many were saved because of the message he brought.  Many were healed.  It was the word that saved them.  It was the message that healed them.  Not the messenger who would later betray the One who sent him.  Only Jehovah could enable the word to work in this way. We are saved by hearing the words and accepting Christ. Only Jehovah could bless His word in this way.

  

 MARK 14:61-62

12. What was the significance of Jesus reply to the High Priest question?

 John 14:10

 13. What is Jesus asking the disciples to believe?

We can believe that He is Jehovah because all of the prophesies about Him are fulfilled in His person. We can believe that He is equal to the Father in every way.   We can believe because He had the power to speak the words of the Father and do mighty miracles.  We can believe because of it was His claim and he is unable to lie.

God said His name was and is and always will be “I AM WHO I AM”.  Jesus said He is, was, and always will be “I AM WHO I AM.”  John knew Him as no other did.  He was Jesus beloved friend.  He had worked intimately with Jesus.  He ate with Him, walked with Him on the dusty roads of the Holy land, and listened to the teachings of Christ.  He came to know the “man” who called Him into the service of Jehovah was “Jehovah.”  John assures us that we can believe Jesus is, was, and always will be “I AM WHO I AM’.
