God’s Name is Wonderful
God’s name is Wonderful and the name of Jesus Christ is Wonderful too! God told one enquirer… “Why do you ask after my name seeing it is wonderful?” (Judges 13:18) Some translations say it this way: “seeing it is secret, miraculous, a name that works miracles and is beyond human understanding. Others say God’s name is beyond comprehension and too wonderful to understand, a mystery, sheer wonder, too amazing for you to believe and supremely wonderful!”
Jesus’ Name is Wonderful Too
Isaiah’s prophesy of Christ declares “His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6) This makes perfect sense when you realize that Jesus came in his Father’s name. Jesus clearly said “I have come in my Father’s name and you do not receive me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.” (John 5:43) The Father’s name is Wonderful and so is His Son’s! “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11) Jesus did not claim to be the Father but he did claim to bear his Father’s name.
The Name of Jesus is a Name Above Every Name
The Apostle John saw Christ’s return and wrote “He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called the Word of God. He has on his robe and on his thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Rev 19) The name of Jesus is a name above every name!
God Promises a Great Blessing
God promises a great blessing to those who meditate on His name! The prophet Malachi said, “Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD listened and heard them. So a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the Lord and meditate on His name. “They shall be Mine” says the LORD of Hosts. “On the day that I make them My jewels (special treasure). I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” (Malachi 3) Meditating on God’s Name is time well spent!
