  • Who is the Almighty God in Revelation 1:8?
    • pugwashjw65
      (Revelation 1:18) and the living one, and I became dead, but look! I am living forever and ever, and I have the keys of death and of the Grave. This is NOT almighty God...but is Jesus... He has the ' keys' of death and the grave...It is his sacrifice that has PAID to have death removed from mankind. and everything is under the jurisdiction of his father in heaven...Jehovah... (Revelation 20:1-3) And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven with the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. 2 He seized the dragon, the original serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for 1,000 years. 3 And he hurled him into the abyss and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not mislead the nations anymore until the 1,000 years were ended. After this he must be released for a little while. Jehovah never leaves heaven...but Jesus, as an angel, THE archangel...will be doing so... (Revelation 6:2) And I saw, and look! a white horse, and the one seated on it had a bow; and a crown was given him, and he went out conquering and to complete his conquest. So WHO gave Jesus the crown [ as King ] It was Jehovah.. And unless Jehovah is NAMED, there remains confusion...as to WHO is being spoken about.

      Revelation 1:8 speaks of the Almighty God. Revelation 1:8 "I Am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty."
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Whether you like hearing that Jesus is the Almighty God or not, this is what Scripture teaches. It couldn't be any clearer in verse 17 and 18 which define Jesus: Revelation 1:17-18 "And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; [I Am the First and the Last]: 18 I Am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I Am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death."

      Who gave Jesus the crown? The Father and the Son share the same glory. What the Father does, the Son does likewise. John 5:19 "Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He seeth the Father do: for what things soever He doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise."
    • pugwashjw65
      Hi Jenny... your last comment does not prove that Jesus and Jehovah are the one identity.. Jehovah SENT Jesus to us... At least six scriptures use the word " sent'. No one " sends" themselves...
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      When we look at the word "sent," we couldn't expect the Father to come in all His glory. If that was the case, He would consume the whole Earth. We have to use some analogy here.
    • pugwashjw65
      Jehovah does not have TWO identities...that would only be confusing... To have two plus considering the holy spirit...not ghost...to be a third only helps the false trinity teaching.. by the RCC. which is a ploy of Satan......to take glory away from Jehovah...by reducing it... I look forward to your reaction...
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      I totally understand what the Jehovah's Witness teach, but there can only be ONE identity who shares the same glory with the Father.

      The Bible is merely very poor fiction. It is no better than Quran, Torah, Book of Mormon, Eddas, Upanishads, Vedas, Tao Te Ching, Kojiki, Homeric Hymns and other allegedly sacred writings. Do we have Jehovah's Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventists arguing? Both are cults denounced by Christians. It is hilarious to see Bible thumpers cannot agree whether Jesus is God or not. They cherry pick verses. The Bible has many contradictions, so someone can have quite different ideas about it from someone else when both study it.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      ReiSan, quote: "The Bible is merely very poor fiction." You can't prove the Bible is fiction, and it is actually accurate compared to the other religious books that are about hate. The Old Testament was a schoolmaster for the Jews, but the New Testament represents forgiveness. Quote: "It is hilarious to see Bible thumpers cannot agree whether Jesus is God or not." Scripture teaches that Jesus never fell from the glory of God. Again, we have to use some analogy here.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      ReiSan, quote: "Both are cults denounced by Christians." They are denounced by Christendom whose practices are based on opinions and not Scripture. The Jehovah's Witness and the SDA church are a minority. From your views, you also can't prove the Seventh-Day Adventists are a cult.
    • pugwashjw65
      The ONLY group that has Jehoah's approval is the one that is being obedient...to scripture... (Matthew 28:19, 20) Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you. And look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.? No one BUT the J.W's do this...So it can be the only one with approval... even though some cannot do this due to ill health, at least ALL do try...in various ways Even so claimed ' Christians' fail in this regard...The direction was to ALL members of a group, and not just the ' clergy' class.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      pugs, I agree, obedience is necessary to have God's approval. The Seventh-Day Adventists are instructed to go door-to-door and make disciples. You said it yourself in another comment: some SDA members came knocking at your door. Whether you agree with them or not, the importance is that they stopped by.
    • pugwashjw65
      Hi Jenny...I stated it was the Mormons who came, not SDA... And one small point...the SDA totally ban alcohol...Jesus did not...turning water to wine for the benefit of the wedding guests...So they are not being true to scripture...not to get drunk, but for enjoyment... Who would join any religion that bans all fun...WE have lots...but not through drunkenness.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Hello pugs, you must have mentioned the Mormons in another question. To your small point: ancient Israelites mainly drank grape juice. The Bible displays a "certain ambiguity" about wine. At times approving it and at times condemning it. I drink wine myself. Drinking wine with moderation is not a sin.
    • pugwashjw65
      Hi Jenny...As soon as grape juice ferments, it becomes wine...even if not of the highest quality... And the Bible never mentions grape juice...its always...wine...
    • pugwashjw65
      The term " bible" is relatively new...it did not exist when the ' law' was first written...starting with Moses... Forty writers contributed...over a long time...so the argument that the 'word' Bible does not exist in it is understandable....Jesus was named..." the WORD" Bringing to humanity the information that a change is coming...for us a long time, two thousand years...but not for Jehovah who will bring it... A world with NO wickedness...and NO arguments.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Quote: "The term " bible" is relatively new...it did not exist when the ' law' was first written..." And neither are the words "grape juice" found in Scripture. The fact is: wine can be made with grapes, sugar and yeast. No chemicals involved to speak of ancient times. I don't see what your point is when Jesus turned water into wine. I am not saying you cannot drink wine, but drink with moderation.

      Jehovah is Almighty God. (Revelation 1:8) “I am the Al?pha and the O·me?ga,” says Jehovah God, “the One who is and who was and who is coming, the Almighty.” (Exodus 6:2, 3) Then God said to Moses: “I am Jehovah. 3?And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty, but with regard to my name Jehovah I did not make myself known to them. (Genesis 17:1) When A?bram was 99 years old, Jehovah appeared to A?bram and said to him: “I am God Almighty. Walk before me and prove yourself faultless. (Psalm 83:18) May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth.
    • Texasescimo
      Jesus is Son of the Most High God. (Luke 1:32) This one will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, and Jehovah God will give him the throne of David his father, (Luke 8:28) At the sight of Jesus, he cried out and fell down before him, and with a loud voice, he said: “What have I to do with you, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me.”
    • Texasescimo
      Most learned people know that when most modern translations say "Lord God" that that has been substituted for Jehovah God. Luke 1:32 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; Revelation 1:8 New American Standard Bible (NASB) 8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who [a]is to come, the Almighty.”

      (John 17:26) I have made your name known to them and will make it known, so that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in union with them.” (Mark 7:13) Thus you make the word of God invalid by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like this.” http://www.unamsanctamcatholicam.com/liturgy/liturgical-quod-libets/95-liturgy/liturgical-quod-libets/288-yahweh-in-the-liturgy.html The Tetragrammaton is YHWH, the four consonants of the ancient Hebrew name for God. "As an expression of the infinite greatness and majesty of God, it was held to be unpronounceable and hence was replaced during the reading of sacred Scripture by means of the use of an alternate name: 'Adonai,' which means 'Lord,'" the Vatican letter said. Similarly, Greek translations of the Bible used the word "Kyrios" and Latin scholars translated it to "Dominus"; both also mean Lord.

      Texasescimo, quote: "Jehovah is Almighty God. (Revelation 1:8) “I am the Al?pha and the O·me?ga,” says Jehovah God, “the One who is and who was and who is coming, the Almighty." The book of Revelation never mentions the Father is the Almighty. On the contrary, Jesus has the title of the First and Last to speak of Revelation 1:8. Keep reading Revelation chapter 1 so you can see who was dead, and who is alive forevermore. Revelation 1:17-18 "When I saw Him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But He laid his right hand on me, saying, Fear not, I Am the First and the Last, 18 and the living one. I died, and behold I Am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades."

      Texasescimo, quote: "(John 17:26) I have made your name known to them and will make it known, so that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in union with them.”" Jesus made the Father's name known to the Jews before the crucifixion. After the crucifixion, the name of Jesus became the only name to confess among the Gentiles. The Greek word for confess is homolego. It means to say the same thing or to agree. The idea is that a person’s mouth communicates the true conviction and attitude of his or her heart. A person's mouth accurately reveals a person's belief and deep conviction. This passage reveals that a true Christian not only believes in Jesus but He is also the one he or she submits to. Romans 10:13 "For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Texasescimo, quote: "Kyrios" and Latin scholars translated it to "Dominus"; both also mean Lord." The Greek word kurios is translated as Lord or Master. It is used in the Septuagint translation of the Hebrew scriptures and appears in the Koine Greek New Testament about 740 times, usually referring to Lord and LORD from the plural of Adon.

    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Texasescimo, yeah, and the name of the Almighty is found in Revelation 1:8 who is referring to Jesus by the Alpha and Omega. Only Jesus holds the title of the Almighty and the King of kings with a capital "K" for your information.

  • In Japan, the supreme deity is Amaterasu Goddess of the Sun. In Chinese Shenism, the supreme deity is Yu Ti the Jade Emperor of Tian (Heaven). In India, there are three top gods: Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma. Other #1 gods include Zeus, Jove, Odin, Enki, Amon, Ra, Ahuramazda, Asshur, Marduk, etc., etc.! The Christian deity is God in English, YHWH in Hebrew, Shangdi in Mandarin, Diyos in Filipino, Dieu in French, Gott in German, Dio in Italian, Kami in Japanese, Hananim in Korean, Deus in Latin and Portuguese, Bog in Russian, Dios in Spanish, Tanri in Turkish, Thien chua in Vietnamese, etc.!
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Those so-called gods you mentioned do not hold water when compared to the God of the Bible. Prophetic passages appear widely distributed throughout biblical narrative. Some prophecies in the Bible are conditions with the conditions either implicitly assumed or explicitly stated. Nowhere can you prove one prophecy from those other religious characters.
    • Pei Chia-Li
      Just because you say so is not sufficient reason to accept anything. There is no objective evidence than any gods exist, not to mention that one of them is more real than the rest. All gods hold as much water as God. Prophecy is a scam. I just saw someone claiming Nostradamus foresaw the coronavirus outbreak, Nostradamus, Jean Dixon, etc. are like the Bible in being scams.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Pei, quote: "There is no objective evidence than any gods exist," The evidence of God is an expanding universe. The Bible is replete with descriptions of a Universe that came into being from nothing at a fixed point in the distant past as the result of an uncaused, first cause. Colossians 1:16-17 "For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together."
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Pei, quote: "Nostradamus, Jean Dixon, etc. are like the Bible in being scams." Put your references against mine and we can discuss whose teachings are accurate and whose are not.
    • Pei Chia-Li
      Any member of any religion can make the same claims you do. The evidence favors Zeus, Jove, Amaterasu, Odin, Yu Ti, Marduk, Svarog, Quetzalcoatl, etc., etc. as much as God. Uncaused first cause is illogical Special Pleading. The Bible displays much primitive ignorance of the Real Universe. Quoting terrible fiction accomplishes nothing. Using the Bible to prove the Bule is illogical Circular Reasoning. bishop James Ussher studied the Bible and calculated that Creation was in 4004 B.C. Science shows the Universe in its present stage began about 13,800,000,000 years ago. Izanami and Izanagi are the creators in Japan's Kami no Michi, Pan Gu is the creator in China's Shenism, and Brahma is the creator in India's Hinduism. I could read passage about them that prove as much as your quoting the Bible. I can also read some from James Bond novels to prove 007 exists by your bad reasoning. Nostradamus and Jean Dixon are frauds who claim to predict future events. The Bible is no more honest than these scammers. My oldest sister gives her church $50 a month. If she lives as long as our mother's oldest sister and began donating that much at age 21, she will allow her church to swindle $42,000 in her lifetime. Pat Robertson has swindled $100,000,00, Joel Olsteen has swindled $40,000,000, Billy Graham has $25,000,000 when he died. Religion is the oldest con game. You cannot be objective enough to determine accuracy.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Pei, quote: "Any member of any religion can make the same claims you do." But not anyone can predict accuracy. The Bible is the only ancient, well-organized and authentic framework in which to fit all the facts of history. The Bible does not record all history. In fact, there are huge gaps in the history contained in the Bible. Yet, without the Bible and what it reveals from prehistory, ancient history and prophecy which is history written in advance - you cannot truly understand any history. No worldly source can help us as the Bible does in comparison to other religious books. Quote: "Billy Graham has $25,000,000 when he died." Any rich pastor goes against the attributes of Jesus. This is why we hear of ravenous wolves whose only intention is to become wealthy. Matthew 7:15 "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves."

      the NIV removes Jesus Christ from the bible and many other verses https://christianitybeliefs.org/the-most-accurate-bible-translation-comparison-and-deception/ In doing so it is taking the fullness of God out of Christ who The Father gave us as a bridge of reconciliation to himself, and by his name we can be saved, if they are removing Jesus' name, and his importance, there's got to be a reason, and this is why we are speaking two different languages, the freemasons often refer to Jesus being Michael, and they are linked with the Lucis Trust who believe Lucifer is the sacrificial serpent.

      Who is "Lady Wisdom"? Is the trinity God now 4 parts instead of 3 parts? In Hebrew, which assigns gender to its nouns (as do many other languages), the word for “wisdom” is always in the feminine gender. This would continue to be the case even though wisdom is personified and so would not rule out wisdom’s being used figuratively to represent God’s firstborn Son. The Greek word for “love” in the expression “God is love” (1Jo 4:8) is also in the feminine gender but that does not make God feminine. Solomon, the principal writer of Proverbs (Pr 1:1), applied the title qo·he?leth (congregator) to himself (Ec 1:1) and this word is also in the feminine gender.

      Texasescimo, Colossians 1:15-16 does not say Jesus was created by the Father. If you read verse 18, Jesus is the firstborn of the dead. Colossians 1:18 And He is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything He might be preeminent."

  • Psalms 83:18 tells us the name of the 'Most high over all the earth' is "Jehovah". When Moses was sent to bring the Isrealites out of Egypt, he asked God who he should tell the Isrealites had sent him. In Exodus 3:14, it states He said "I am that I am". But in the next verse, Exodus 3:15, it says this: "This is what you are to say to the Isrealites, 'Jehovah the God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, an the God of Jacob, has sent me to you'. This is my name forever, and this is how I am to be remembered from generation to generation.'" so, Jehovah is the name of the Almighty God, the name he chose for himself. This name includes the idea of "I am that I am" because it is from a verb that indicates that Jehovah can become whatever he needs to become to further his purposes.
  • Exodus 3:15 is saying, the LORD, the God of your fathers has sent me to you. The Hebrew word for LORD is Adonai. It is a title for Master.

    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Texasescimo, you shall not bear false witness against your neighbors by saying "ya." I was not raised with the KJV.
    • Texasescimo
      Did someone say you were raised with the KJV? From what I see of you, you only accept certain parts of certain translations and all of none.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Texasescimo, you said in regards to Creamcrackered: "ya can't really"
  • Psalm 83:18 says that Jehovah alone is the Most High. Jesus, himself, stated that he was going to the Father and “the Father is greater than I am.” John 14:28
  • Yes. But in what language do you choose to proclaim it? God doesn't speak English.
    • pugwashjw65
      ages were in fact created by Jehovah God...
    • Texasescimo
      Pretty sure God understands all languages, even unspoken thoughts.
    • Texasescimo
      As if God somehow only speaks Arabic. Give me a break, sheesh!
  • In English, it is Jehovah. In Hebrew, something like Yehowah or Yahweh. (Psalm 83:18) May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth. (Exodus 3:15) Then God said once more to Moses: This is what you are to say to the Israelites, Jehovah the God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is my name forever, and this is how I am to be remembered from generation to generation. (Isaiah 42:8) I am Jehovah. That is my name; I give my glory to no one else, Nor my praise to graven images. (Psalm 110:1) Jehovah declared to my Lord: Sit at my right hand Until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet.
  • There is only one Almighty God. Rev 1:8 is not speaking of Jesus but of his Father Jehovah. He is the Alpha and Omega. Also read Psalms 83:18 it mentions whip the true God is. For more information on this subject please visit jworg
  • Just before He ascended to be seated at the right hand of the Father, Jesus said, “All power [authority] is given me in heaven and in earth” (Matt. 28:18). He immediately delegated His authority in the earth to the Church, “Go ye therefore ” (Matt. 28:19). Then He promised, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; IN MY NAME.” And these signs shall follow them that believe; IN MY NAME shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover” (Matt. 28:18,19; Mark 16:17,18). The Aramaic New Testament uses Y’shua for Messiah’s name; which is short for Y’hoshua means Yahweh is Salvation. Colossians 1:19, KJV: "For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;" ALL the FULLNESS of the Father dwelled in the Son, which is why he said John 10:30 "I and my Father are one." "Truly, Truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am." This was a clear reference to Exodus 3:14, where God revealed His name to Moses as "I AM." The reason the religious leaders wanted to kill Him was because Jesus claimed to be God. "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger" (John 6:35). "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life" (John 8:12). "I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture" (John 10:9). "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep" (John 10:11). "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live" (John 11:25). "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). "I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser" (John 15:1). People see God as something up there, something separate, but that is because of their sense of self, there ego. But if God is all powerful he must be everywhere and in everything, the width, length, depth and height, the heavens and the earth. For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height; to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:14-19) 1 Timothy 3:16 “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”

      Quote: [Jesus said, “All power [authority] is given me in heaven and in earth” (Matt. 28:18)] Who gave Jesus authority? God, right? What is God's name? Quite a word salad. Check different translations and/or manuscripts. Several of the verses you used are rendered wrong and some totally spurious. Examples: Mark 16:17,18; 1 Tim 3:16; Exodus 3:14. Those as well as the rest are taken out of context in trying to hide God's name. Obviously you are using the KJV. It does have God's name in 4 verses. Psalm 83:18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth. Exodus 6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name Jehovah was I not known to them. Isaiah 12:2 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth. Isaiah 26:4 Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength: Please do not try to prevent people from getting to know God. Jesus made God's name know, so do Christians. (John 17:1-3) Jesus spoke these things, and raising his eyes to heaven, he said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your son so that your son may glorify you, 2just as you have given him authority over all flesh, so that he may give everlasting life to all those whom you have given to him. 3This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ. (John 17:6) “I have made your name manifest to the men whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours, and you gave them to me, and they have observed your word. (John 17:26) I have made your name known to them and will make it known, so that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in union with them.”
    • Texasescimo
      Love is all the proof anyone needs and that is in every translation and manuscript. (John 13:35) By this all will know that you are my disciples—if you have love among yourselves.” Please do not drink poison or handle poisonous snakes to prove you believe and especially do not teach others to do this. Mark 16:9-20 are spurious and wacco. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=mark+16%3A8-17&version=NLT;NIV;NKJV;JUB;MSG [The earliest manuscripts and some other ancient witnesses do not have verses 9–20.] https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20John%205:7-8;1%20Timothy%203:16;John%203:13;Colossians%202:2;John%201:18&version=NASB;HCSB;NKJV;NLT;NIV

      The Father
    • Creamcrackered
      Yahweh is from the Hebrew punctuation and more accurately represents how the Tetragrammaton was pronounced than the usual Masoretic punctuation from which the English transliteration Jehovah has been derived. Jesus had the fullness of the father, seen in Isaiah's 11:2. The father was happy for his fullness to "dwell" in him. Hence, Jesus means Yahweh's salvation.
    • Texasescimo
      How do you feel about the English Jesus, Joshua, Jeremiah, Jehoshaphat, Jehoash etc? Do you use Yeshua, Yeremiah, Yehoshaphat, Yehoash etc? Is it only God's name that can not be used in modern day English?
  • *** IN YOUR copy of the Bible, how is Psalm 83:18 translated? The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures renders this verse: “May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, you alone are the Most High over all the earth.” A number of other Bible translations give similar renderings. However, many translations leave out the name Jehovah, replacing it with such titles as “Lord” or “Eternal.” What belongs in this verse? A title or the name Jehovah? This verse speaks about a name. In the original Hebrew in which much of the Bible was written, a unique personal name appears here. It is spelled יהוה (YHWH) in Hebrew letters. In English, the common rendering of that name is “Jehovah.” Does that name occur in only one Bible verse? No. It appears in the original text of the Hebrew Scriptures nearly 7,000 times!
    • Pei Chia-Li
      Yahweh is much closer than Jehovah to YHWH.Jehovah ios a mangling of German and English.
  • Yeah. El in Hebrew. Elah in Aramaic.

    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      You are right about knowing the names of those gods, but actually nobody knows the name of God from the Bible. The word God in English is a title. It has never been a name by the Hebrew word Elohim which means God. On your 10th call, God's name was also never written as a Tetragrammaton. It goes against Exodus 20:7. It is a sin to misuse the name of God.
    • Pei Chia-Li
      Elohim is plural. El was supreme among the Elohim. God and Satan are titles. Lucifer is the supreme Satan or Devil.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Not quite, Elohim is a title used frequently in the Hebrew Bible. The God of Israel has always been grammatically singular.
    • Pei Chia-Li
      Before Moses came, Hebrews were polytheistic. Their gods were Elohim. El was the chief Elohim. Moses was henotheistic, i.e. he believed many gods exist, but he pledged to worship YHWH. His frst commandmnet said "Thou shalt have no other gods before me", and that is henotheism in a nutshell.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Quote: "Before Moses came, Hebrews were polytheistic." Actually, the Talmud holds that the Torah was written by Moses with the exception of the last eight verses of Deuteronomy, describing his death and burial, being written by Joshua. In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth is not saying Gods or the gods created the Heaven and the Earth.
    • Pei Chia-Li
      No on e else ays a necessity to say, "Quote......"! Moses is an Egyptian name. He probably copied Akhnaten of Ikhnaton the first known monotheist. There are passage indicating other gods. You did not comment about the First Commandment that is henotheitic. Pan Gu is the creator in Chinese Shenism, Izanami and Izanagi are the creators in Japanese Kami no Michi (aka Shinto from Chinese for it), Brahma was the creator in India's Hinduism.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Pei, stop complaining. Don't worry about the quotes. Worry more about what is being said. Quote: "There are passage indicating other gods." Nowhere in Scripture will you find the early Creation of God worshiping gods. You'll find it in other religious books from Buddhism to Hinduism, but not in the Bible. The word God has always been strictly singular.
    • Pei Chia-Li
      The First Commandment says, "Thou shalt not have any other gods before me", and you brashly deny it. Quote: "The word God has always been singular". Oh wow, you are a poor debater.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      The First Commandment never referred to Heavenly gods, but earthly gods. A poor debater? I mentioned VARIOUS times in this thread that the word "God" when referring to the Creator is singular to quote my earlier remarks: "God created the Heaven and the Earth is not saying Gods or the gods created the Heaven and the Earth." God - singular. gods - plural. This deserves a *Facepalm*
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      The gods that are mentioned in the Torah are earthly gods in the Exodus. The golden calf was turned into a god. The word Elohim when meaning the God of Israel is translated as God and capitalized. Deuteronomy 10:17 "For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe." So think again to see who the weak debater is. Anybody else reading these comments can clearly see you lost this debate last week. *Double Facepalm*
    • Pei Chia-Li
      I took Bible History in college, and my professor disagrees with you. You make brash statements and have no supporting evidence. Moses believed the gods of Egypt, Sumeria, etc. existed, but he gave his allegiance to YHWH. You speak of QUOTE "earthly gods":, That is an oxymoron. Apis was an Egyptian god in the form of a calf. Most Egyptian gods were partly or totally animal. You show that you did not study Bible History in college. You did not know about the Egyptian god Apis the calf god. My class taught me that Elohim is plural. Moses brought a new religion to the Hebrews who worshipped Elohim. There are various quotes in the Torah that indicate amny gods existed. You are a weak debater but imagine you are a great one, just as you imagine you are an expert on clothing. Anyone who is logical knows you lose badly.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Quote: "I took Bible History in college, and my professor disagrees with you." You can always welcome your professor in this discussion so I can prove him or her wrong. I have added plenty of evidence in my comments, along with rational explanations to see why a true God is singular. Quote: "Moses believed the gods of Egypt," You will not find in Scripture were Moses believed in the Egyptian gods. One thing is believing in a Creator as the only true God, another is talking about man-made gods, just as the golden calf to speak of IDOLS. Exodus 34:17 "You shall make no molten gods for yourselves."
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Quote: "My class taught me that Elohim is plural." Your class taught a false teaching. The definition of singular refers to just one person or thing. https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/singular It is strange how you supposedly went to college without understanding basic English. How funny! lol
  • The name of the Almighty God is Jehovah. Here at psalms 83:18 it says, May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth. To learn more please visit jworg.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      There are no vowels in Hebrew to state that Jehovah is God's name.
    • Texasescimo
      What do you have against Jehovah? Do any names in ancient Hebrew have vowels? What do the vowels in Jehoshaphat, Jehoash, Jeroboam, Jeremiah, Joshua, or even Adamr or Moses for that matter look like?
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Texasescimo, do a research on the Hebrew word Hovah. Modifying English names with Je-surnames does not make them actual Hebrew names.
  • Jesus. Revelation 1:8 "I Am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." Revelation 1:17-20 "And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I Am the First and the Last: 18 I Am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I Am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death."
