Teen Enlighten Me! Caverns

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a workman who does not need to be ashamed
and who correctly handles the word of truth.
 2 Timothy 2:15
Gramma Cherbear wants you to learn some of

the Names and Ways of God! 

When I chose what I need to teach God's teenagers, I thought back to those things that brought me to a closer relationship to Him. This study on the Names of God will teach some exciting 'deep things' of God. I think it will help you to know HIM!
 
When God's people learned to know Him in a new way,
they gave Him the Name that described what they had learned about Him!
 
Look into a Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic word study of the Bible!
If I find a link on the web, I will add it ...I am seeking too!

To help you pronounce some of these names,
I have added what I believe to be the correct sounds of the syllables.

from Dr. Ben David Lew

I am not an authority on Hebrew or Aramaic words, however Rabi and Dr. Ben David Lew is.

The First Six of these names combined with Jehovah,
are the most used among adult Christians. All are important.
Have fun memorizing these names and use them...OUT LOUD...when you call upon God!
Jesus is the Lord! These are all Names for Him!
