2002-12-03 - Names of Christ
Isaiah 49:2 And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand He has concealed Me, and He has also made Me a select arrow; He has hidden Me in His quiver.
Many of you have written and asked me to finish up the names of Christ series. So today is the conclusion. The other three can be found on the days, 10-8, 10-23, and 11-4. I did make a mistake that was pointed out to me. In the second installment I list Guide: 48:14, it should be Guide: Psalm 48:14. I am sorry for my error.
I wanted to take a moment and mention the third commandment found in Exodus 20:7. We need to be careful in our reference to and use of the Lord's name and those names that can be attributed to Christ. We need to not use them in vain. These attributions to Christ are not to be tossed about flippantly. References to God are to be used with reverence and not said in a casual manner. So here is the final list.
