His Name

Malachi 3:16  "Then those who feared the Lord talked with each other, and the Lord listened and heard..." --This is us
"A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the Lord and honored His Name." Is my name written in the scroll of remembrance? What about when I watched the TV show that allowed the word  "GD." to be said and not censored. A show that you would not expect to hear that word. Bleeping other words but this word has being allowed. Or that book with such good plot and then the word shows up in the middle of it.
"They will be mine says the Lord Almighty in the day when I make up my treasured possession." (17)  "And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not. "(18) "But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings." (4:2)
I must always make the right choice and choose to turn it off or walk away from it. I must not allow it to be part of my day. I desire most of all to be His treasured possession. I want the distinction between me and the world to be evident.

What about America?
"If you do not set your heart to honor My Name, says the Lord Almighty, I will send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes I have already cursed them, because you have not set your heart to honor Me." Malachi 2:2

  1. I agree. The Lord's name is "tossed around" way too often and in way too casual of a way. It is a shame that people don't even realize that they are dishonoring God when they use His name as an explative. Have you noticed that the closer we get to our Lord and the deeper our relationship becomes, the more sensitive we are to sin? That's a good thing...I pray that those who are unaware have hearts that begin to soften to Him and their understanding will grow.

    Living for Him, Joan

    P.S. Yes...pray for America!

  3. I was drawn to the title of your blog post today, because of my love for the Names of God. After filling three posters with His names and scribbling them on bits of paper whenever I wasn't near my posters, I began to blog about them on Rock4Today. His names reveal to me His character. It's neat to run into others who share the same passion!

  4. If we do not honour God's name He will curse our blessings. Wow...that calls for some serious consideration. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week. :)

  5. Not only is that a beautiful reminder, it is full of truth.

    Reently I purchased a whole season of a certain TV series.--It was really good, great actors, great plot, for the most part very wholesome--just a few little things here and there--I turned my head--

    Purchased second season--a little worse but the acting was so good, the plot exceptional for today's TV--turned my head again--

    Purchased season three--first episode was horrible--I did NOT turn my head--erased the season from my ITunes library and will NOT be a part of watching that--

    We have to make what seemingly are some hard choices but God will bless us in the end. I am back to almost NO TV watching but it's okay, I have other things and better things to occupy my time.

    Thanks for a great post!!!

  6. Looking at the names of Jesus makes my heart fill with joy. Just as my heart aches when people use His name without reverence. Have you heard Chris Tomlin's song?

    The name of Jesus is a refuge
    A shelter from the storm, a help to those who call
    The name of Jesus is a fortress
    A saving place to run, a hope unshakeable

    When we fall You are the Savior, when we call You are the answer
    There is power in Your name, there is power in Your name

  7. It is so important to honor God's name. I cringe every time I hear someone take His name in vain. It's hard to find anything decent to watch on TV anymore.
    Blessings,
