NAMES, TITLES AND CHARACTER OF JESUS CHRIST

 

 

The Deity (#6) of Christ

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE NAMES OF GOD

The names of God hold an important key to understanding who God is.The names of God are a personal disclosure of His Person, and reveal His relationship with His people. His names are known only because He chooses to make them known. To the Hebrew mind, God was both hidden and revealed, transcendent and immanent. Even though he was mysterious, lofty, and unapproachable, He bridged the gap with humankind by revealing His names.

The truth of God’s character is focused in His name. The divine name reveals God’s power, authority, and holiness. This accounts for Israel’s great reverence for God’s name. The Ten Commandments prohibited the violation of God’s name:

(Exo 20:7 KJV)
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain;
for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.


JESUS CHRIST IS "THE ARM OF THE LORD"

(Isa 51:9-11 KJV)
Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD;
awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old.
Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab{figuratively of Egypt, see Ps 87:4} ,
and wounded the dragon? {satan}
{10} Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep;
that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?
{11} Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion;
and everlasting joy shall be upon their head:
they shall obtain gladness and joy;
and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

(Isa 51:5-8 KJV)
My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people;
the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.
{6} Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath:
for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment,
and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner:
but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.
{7} Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law;
fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
{8} For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool:
but my righteousness shall be for ever,
and my salvation from generation to generation.

(Isa 53:1-6 KJV)
Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
{2} For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground:
he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
{3} He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:
and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
{4} Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
{5} But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
{6} All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way;
and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

(Isa 59:15-20 KJV)
Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey:
and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.
And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor:
therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.
{17} For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head;
and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.
{18} According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay,
fury to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies;
to the islands{Heb=fig. of the peoples at the ends of the earth} he will repay recompense.
{19} So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun.
When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
{20} And the Redeemer shall come to Zion,
and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.

(Isa 62:8-12 KJV)
The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength,
Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies;
and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured:
{9} But they that have gathered it shall eat it and praise the LORD;
and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.
{10} Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people;
cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.
{11} Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world,
Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh;
behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
{12} And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD:
and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

(Luke 1:49-54 KJV)
For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.
{50} And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
{51} He hath showed strength with his arm;
he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
{52} He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.
{53} He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.
{54} He hath helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;

(John 12:38-41 KJV)
That the saying of Esaias{Isaiah} the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake,
Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
{39} Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,
{40} He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart;
that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart,
and be converted, and I should heal them.
{41} These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

JESUS CHRIST: THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH

(Heb 12:1-4 KJV)
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us,
and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
{2} Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
{3} For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself,
lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
{4} Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

(Acts 5:30-32 KJV)
The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
{31} Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour,
for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
{32} And we are his witnesses of these things;
and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

(Rev 1:7-8 KJV)
Behold, he cometh with clouds;
and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him:
and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.
Even so, Amen.
{8} I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord,
which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

(Rev 1:17-18 KJV)
And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.
And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me,
Fear not; I am the first and the last:
{18} I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen;
and have the keys of hell and of death.

(Rev 2:8 KJV)
And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write;
These things saith the first and the last,
which was dead, and is alive;

(Heb 10:14-17 KJV)
For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
{15} Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
{16} This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord,
I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
{17} And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

(Heb 7:19 KJV)
For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did;
by the which we draw nigh{near} unto God.
But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
{25} Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him,
seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
{26} For such an high priest became us,
who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
{27} Who needeth not daily, as those high priests,
to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's:
for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
{28} For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity;
but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

JESUS CHRIST: IS THE BELOVED OF GOD

(Mat 12:18-21 KJV)
Behold my servant, whom I have chosen;
my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased:
I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall show judgment to the Gentiles.
{19} He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
{20} A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench,
till he send forth judgment unto victory.
{21} And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

(Mark 1:9-12 KJV)
And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee,
and was baptized of John in Jordan.
{10} And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened,
and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:
{11} And there came a voice from heaven, saying,
Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
{12} And immediately the Spirit driveth him into the wilderness.

(Mat 17:5-8 KJV)
While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them:
and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said,
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
{6} And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid.
{7} And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.
{8} And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

(Psa 2:7-12 KJV)
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
{8} Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance,
and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
{9} Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
{10} Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
{11} Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
{12} Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
