Our Lord and Master!

[Gen 2:4-5 KJV] 4 These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, 5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and [there was] not a man to till the ground.

Yahweh is the promised proper name of God. It means Lord and Master. By Jewish tradition this name is too holy to pronounce or write. Therefore they just wrote four letters without any vowels: YHWH. Jews stopped saying the name all together in the third century AD. They stopped saying this name because they were afraid of violating the fourth commandment that prohibits misusing, or taking the Lord’s name in vain. Therefore scholars today don’t know for sure if the original pronunciation was Yahweh or Jehovah. (Yahweh, Lord Jehovah)

It is first seen in Genesis 2:4 and is used 6519 times in the Bible. The declaration of the name Yahweh as the one who created the earth and the heavens, leaves no room for other gods. Yahweh is the Lord and Master. There are no other Gods who can stand before him.

[1Sa 5:1-3 KJV] 1 And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod. 2 When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon. 3 And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon [was] fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.

Such is the fate of any other God who would try to stand before the one true God. Man had to take the false god Dagon and set him in his place. Dagon's fate was then worse than before.

[1Sa 5:4 KJV] 1:  4 And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon [was] fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands [were] cut off upon the threshold; only [the stump of] Dagon was left to him.

There is only one God – Yahweh, Our Lord and Master! Let us worship him and declare His greatness before all men and nations.

Keep Looking Up!
