“Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
Who has gathered the wind in His fist?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name, and what is His son’s name?”
Surely you know! Psalm 30:4
What would cause one to have the wrong name?
A few will will know His name, but very many will have the wrong name or no clue at all. At least, this is what is strongly hinted at here. The Father makes very many references to His name in His Word and clearly it is important to Him.
I mean to say, you could very well have a lot of good intentions and have done much in good service, but to get your Father’s name wrong? Come on! That’s basic stuff … isn’t it?
Doesn’t anyone at all, feel rather angered at someone who gets their name wrong? One doesn’t make a doctrine out of it, of course; one doesn’t need to, because it is just common sense and politeness that is at issue here!
Top tip: Make absolutely certain that you know the Ruler and Creator of the Universes’ name. He has made it available to those to seek Him.
It is also interesting to note that the Father’s name has been systematically obscured in almost all English translations of the First Covenant (Aka The Old Testament) and His precious sons name was at some point replaced altogether from the Renewed Covenant (Aka The New Testament). Why is that then? Hmmm?
And what of the Arch Bishops, Popes and learned Oxford theologians et al? Did they not know? Or did they just think it not worth being pedantic about? Or worse?
“Surely you know!” is not a question, it is perhaps a furious exclamation toward those who should have known better.
