The Names Of God- Full Version

All through 2020 I posted different couplets that looked at the meanings of some of the different names of God and behold, we now have the full version with a few more added in for good measure! These couplets have come in so handy for me and have really helped me memorise the meanings of a few of God's different names. I hope they're a blessing to you too as they help us dwell on just some of the many incredible aspects of our marvellous Creator's character.

The Names Of God- Immanuel

Each month throughout 2020 I've been posting a little rhyming couplet that looks at one or two of the names of God and their meanings. My hope is that they have been an easy way to help memorise just some of the many different names of God! To finish off the year the name of focus is "Immanuel."

Fool For Jesus

Many times over the years I’ve noticed how Christians are often derided and spoken to as if they’re automatically of low intelligence for having their beliefs. Christian characters in films and TV programs are frequently portrayed as “simple” or “naive” while the real “thinkers” and “intellects” of this world are the atheists.

This is of course a very flawed way of viewing a Christian and a rather insulting assumption to make as believing in God doesn’t bear any reflection on a person’s IQ level. What’s interesting to note is that the Bible actually tells us in Proverbs 9:10,

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”

No matter what our belief system is in life however, it all takes faith. The atheist has to have faith that there is no God and must believe in things that they can’t see or prove. We all have a faith in something bigger than ourselves, whether that’s the “big bang theory” or the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth.

A final little Poetry Prayer for 2020! What a year it's been but the birth of Jesus Christ remains the greatest blessing upon mankind. As the famous lyrics say, "Veiled in flesh the Godhead see! Hail the incarnate Deity!" I'm so grateful Christ still reigns in these troubled times and reigns within my heart!
