THE NAMES OF GOD
 
© Jennifer Lynn Joy
 
The mystery of GOD is not possible to define or comprehend, yet we find ourselves in need of a means of communication, a language as a place to begin. Communication between ELOHIM and humankind is known to begin with Abraham, therefore, it is the place that I begin the introduction of the names of God. In the Hebrew language, small letters do not exist and so, all names of the LORD are capitalized. God is infinite and the following list is merely a minuscule sample of the names attributed to HIS Deity over the centuries.
