Names of God - Yah

Yah

The Lord

The Lord my strength

The Lord my praise

Yah is an abbreviation of Yahwe (YHWH), meaning Lord (God).

This name of God expresses great joy in relation to what God is and what He has done for His people and His children. The name Yah appears first in the hymn of Moses at the Red Sea.

In the Psalms, the well-known "Praise Yah!" is often referred to as "Hallelujah," which means "Praise the Lord". It always denotes a joyful, jubilant exclamation.

All the redeemed will one day join in the heavenly praise "with one voice".

"Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation."

And you will say in that day: "Give thanks to the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing praises to the Lord, for he has done gloriously; let this be made known in all the earth. Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel."

Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

Revelation 15:2-4 (ESV)

And I saw what appeared to be a sea of glass mingled with fire - and also those who had conquered the beast and its image and the number of its name, standing beside the sea of glass with harps of God in their hands. And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, "Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the nations! Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed."

For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure" - for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.
