The Names of God – El Shaddai

Today, we will begin a new blog series on the names of God. Over the last few years, I have been intrigued by the original Hebrew and Greek biblical language. One of my bucket list items is to study the language and get deeper into the Word thoroughly.

For now, though, studying the names of God will have to suffice.

El Shaddai – The Almighty, All-Sufficient God

El-Shaddai first appears in Genesis 17:1 when God is talking with Abram,

“When Abram was ninety-nine years old the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless,”

The last use of El Shaddai is in Revelation 19:15

“From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty.”

The Lord boldly proclaims that He is the almighty, all-sufficient God from the very beginning of Genesis and throughout the old testament.

The apostle John used the name to describe the end times and the wrath of God the Almighty that will be brought forth when Jesus comes back to earth.

Come, Lord Jesus!
