** One Name but many Titles ** - Slide 5

Psalm 83:18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is יהוה , art the Most High over all the earth.

  • Name - יהוה
  • Title - Most High

1. יהוה is the name by which God desires to make known to men.

    How much do you and I really know or care for God's Name?

2 The Title, "Most High" occurs 51X in the Bible. 46X in the OT. 

    Whenever this title is used, it refers specifically to Yahweh God only.

3. Only Yahweh God bears this title "Most High" or "Most High God". 

    In Hebrew, it is "El Elyon".

4.  Psalms has the most occurrence of this title. 
  • You often hear the Psalmists praising the Name of יהוה Most High.
  • Psalm 7:17 I will praise יהוה according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of יהוה Most High. (KJV)
  • Psalm 9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou Most High. (KJV)

5. This title "Most High" is particularly important in the Book of Daniel. 
  • It appears 12X and tells us that Yahweh God is the absolute Highest and above all. 
  • The Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth.
  • Dan 7:27, "And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him." (KJV)

6. God's Name יהוה alone represents His supreme authority, ruling over all the earth. 

    The authority is in God's Name יהוה .

The Name Yahweh is above a Title.
We will find out more why this is so important in the next slide. Stay tune!
