This study is an attempt to search the Bible to discover the ways God has revealed Himself. It seems that every name He has; portrays His being or existence, His functions in the universe, or both. Each of the persons of the Godhead has a different function, though all are God. It seems that God the Father planned creation and redemption; the eternal Son became a man in order to die upon the cross to purchase man’s salvation; and the Holy Spirit works salvation by his restraint of evil in this age (2 Thess 2:7); by convicting man of his sin (Jn 16:8); by empowering redeemed man to become increasingly obedient to God (Jn 16:8), and, finally, by taking redeemed man to live forever in the presence of the risen glorified Christ (Jn 14:6). Also I shall try to find a Biblical definition and translate it from the Biblical Hebrew into English.

1. ADONAI: LORD AS LORD This word is one that reveals respect. It is used as a name:
BETHEL: THE HOUSE OF GOD Jacob fled from Esau, who threatened, because Jacob had lied to His father and stolen Esau’s blessing. On the trip he slept in the desert that night. During the night he dreamed; a ladder reached from heaven to earth and angels were ascending and descending it. The LORD stood above the ladder and spoke to Jacob. In the vision the LORD (I AM) renewed the covenant He had made with Abraham and promised the land to Jacob’s descendents who would become a nation. Jacob said: “…This is none other than the house of God…” (Gen 28:17) “And he called the name of that place Bethel…” (Gen 28:19)
Every name that God uses for Himself enlarges our comprehension of His existence or being; His works among believers, all Mankind, and in the total universe in the past, today, and throughout all eternity to come. God revealed Himself in the Old Testament by His personal name – “I AM”, and in the New Testament Jesus used the word “I AM” to declare that he was God.
At His betrayal, Jesus asked, “Whom are you seeking?” They replied “Jesus of Nazareth.” Jesus said “I AM.” Now when he said I AM, they drew back and fell to the ground.” (Jn.18:4-6) Thus Jesus proved one more time that He is God. Jesus also said “I and my Father are one.” (Jn. 10:30) To us in another way, Jesus proved He is God.
