The Significance of the Names of God In the Bible are the Names of God Are Like Miniature Portraits And Promises. In The Bible, a person’s name identified them and stood for something specific. This is especially true of God since names carried special significance. This is evident in the fact that God revealed His names to His people rather than allowing them to choose their names for Him.

The Great purpose of man, especially the believer in Jesus Christ, “Is To Glorify God”, “Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the Glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). Essential to our ability to Glorify God is the knowledge of God and knowing Him personally in view of that knowledge God’s names tell us many things about God’s care and concern for us (human beings).
