Understanding the NAME above all names is essential to understanding the Kingdom of God.


God’s kingdom is Christ’s kingdom.

Revelation 11:15…saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.”

Heresy will crumble when Zechariah 14:9 is fulfilled. We learn in the Revelation of  Jesus Christ that Jesus is King of kingsZechariah 14:9 tells us the LORD will rule over all the earth. His name will be the ONLY name. Philippians 2:9, however, says Jesus name is the name that will be above all names. In Hebrew, Jesus name is Yehoshua. Jesus’ name and God’s name in the Old Testament include Yeho – a part of the forever name of God or Yahweh, as transcribed here, Yehowah. 

imageWhen we inherit from our father, the inheritance belongs to us. The Bible teaches that Jesus inherited the Name of God:

Hebrews 1:4…having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

God’s Kingdom is an eternal kingdom:

The LORD reigns, He is robed with majesty; the LORD is robed in majesty and armed with strength. The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved. Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity” (Psalm 93:1-2).

“The LORD will reign for ever and ever” (Exodus 15:18).

“O LORD, God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth” (2 Kings 19:15).

“The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned as King forever” (Psalm 29:10).

“The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one Lord, and his name the only name” (Zechariah 14:9).

One of the most vivid depictions of the Kingdom of God and the Person of Christ is  found in Hebrews 1: 1-12 where the writer refers to Psalm 45:6 in describing the Son of God.

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”? Or again,“I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son”? 6 And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says,

“Let all God’s angels worship him.”

Of the angels he says, “He makes his angels winds, and his ministers a flame of fire.” But of the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions.”

10 And, “You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands; 11 they will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment, 12 like a robe you will roll them up, like a garment they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will have no end.”

imageJesus told us if we are to see the Kingdom, we must be born again.

No wonder John the Baptist announced that the Kingdom of God was at hand when Our Lord Jesus Christ came on the scene! Praise be to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost – Yahweh!
