Names of God

Yahweh Elohim יהוה אלהים

Lord and God

God the Lord

Yahweh Elohim is the first and most powerful compound with God’s personal name YHVH in the Word of God.

Yahweh (LORD - I am who I am - I will be who I will be) Elohim (God the Creator). The only Lord and God - above all!

"Elohim" is translated in Greek with ho theos (God), an "YHVH" with ho kyrios (the Lord)

This combination of name is a revelation of the anointed One of God, the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

He who comes from above is above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and speaks in an earthly way. He who comes from heaven is above all.

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life;
