Praise God from whom all blessing flow
Great are the works of the LORD  they are pondered by all who delight in them.

The Word of God is God’s witness to the believer (1 John 5:11-13).  Salvation in Christ is not just the gift of life, but of “the life,” the one which comes only through faith in God’s unique Son. The declaration of Scripture is that the one who believes in Christ’s person and work on the cross as God’s provision for his sins has:


(1) Eternal life. John 3:36, 1 John 5:11-13

(2) Forgiveness of all sin. Acts 10:43, Colossians 2:13

(3) Freedom from condemnation. John 5:24, Romans 8:1

(4) Justification (declared righteous by God). Romans 5:1, Romans 4:1-6, 25

(5) Salvation. Ephesians 2:8-9

(6) A child of God by faith. John 1:12, Romans 8:14-17


Names of God: The Lord Revealed in YHVH is the Lord Revealed in Yeshua (Jesus)
The LORD who revealed Himself as YHVH in the Old Testament is revealed as Yeshua (Jesus) in the New Testament. Jesus shares the same attributes as YHVH and clearly claims to be YHVH. In John 8:56-9, Jesus presents himself as the "I AM." When challenged by some Jewish leaders regarding His claim of seeing Abraham (who lived some 2000 years earlier), Jesus replied, "Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I AM." Those Jewish leaders understood that Jesus was claiming to be YHVH. This is clearly established when they tried to stone Him to death for what they considered blasphemy under Jewish Law. In Romans 10:9, Paul declares, "if you confess with your mouth Yeshua as LORD... you shall be saved." Immediately thereafter, in Romans 10:13, Paul backs up this declaration by quoting the Old Testament, "Whoever will call upon the name of the LORD (YHVH) will be saved" (Joel 2:32). Calling on Yeshua (Jesus) as Lord is the same as calling Him YHVH, because Yeshua (Jesus) is YHVH (LORD), the Messiah foretold throughout the entire Old Testament.
