    I am reading Psalms..and throughout the bible God has made an emphasis of his name.
    For example...they know my name...they call on my name...etc. He makes it quite clear he has a certain name and Psalms says the name of the Lord of Jacob...but he never reveals his name..he only talks about it.
    Now, I call him Jesus, of course...but what is the the Fathers name? Jehovah? Yahweh? Yeshua?
    Why..and excuse me, because I have BAD memory...but why doesn't Pslam not just say his name?
    I'm so bent on knowing the RIGHT name...because I see such an emphasis to know it, and call.on it.
    I'm still learning..and forgetful.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I suppose one day we will find out...
    Revelation 3:12 (KJV) Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

    As per Acts 2.41.

    By God's grace born again as per John 3; 1 Peter 1, prior to being baptised.

    13) And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
    14) And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

    Water is not the means of the new birth.

    How are you born of both water and Spirit?

    Ephesians 5.26 speaks of "the washing of water by the word".

    Baptism is a symbol which comes after the person has been born again and believed.

    Why do you need a symbol?

    In obedience to the Lord's command; but one is not saved by water.

    May I ask, Where are you going with your questions?

    I do not believe God needs a symbol of my obedience.

    Obeying the Lord's loving command brings blessing.

    How much do you have to love Jesus to keep His commandments?
    How much love does that require?

    In all of these cases, you're speaking of a new start.

    Baptism is emblematic of that and, for most Christians, it is also a channel of grace for living the new life of a Christian.
