Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

The names of God teach us about His character. When we get to know His names, we get to know Him. Using “He Is Yahweh,” as sung by Blake Reynolds to inspire us to explore Scripture, we uncover wonderful truths.

Join me as we explore the first mention of Yahweh in Scripture and much more.

Additional Resources

This Week’s Challenge

Read Genesis 1-3, keeping an eye on the names of God (Elohim and Yahweh) as they are revealed in time in the text. Consider how you may have elevated one name or characteristic of God over another in a way that has actually diminished Who He really is. Recognize that though you may never have really questioned the doctrine of the Trinity before, it is a foundational belief that cannot be overlooked.
