(Mal 1:6) “A son esteems his father, and a servant his master. And if I am the Father, where is My esteem? And if I am a Master, where is My fear? said יהוה of hosts to you priests who despise My Name. But you asked, ‘In what way have we despised Your Name?’

This scripture verse raises a great question! In what way have we despised Your Name ~ Creator of the Universe? If you have never pondered this question we’ve listed some scripture verses referring to the phrase “My Name”. Paul & I considered this question back in the 1990’s. Could it be this year we are currently in that others will be given the revelation of the importance of the Creator’s Name? Could this be a spiritually dynamic year for the out pouring of revelation on those whose Names are written in the Book of Life? We hope so!

Our Creator’s Name is so vastly full of meaning. When we start seeking to understand this fullness it is like a well spring of beauty revealed ~ pouring out upon us! Oh how pleasant are your ways our Elohim!
