Our Name

What is in a name?What is in a Name?

Is a name important or does it simply fill a space because we're supposed to have one.

Is the main prerequisite for naming something how marketable it is, or how catchy; how it sticks in our collective heads?

Or

Must a name be an expression of the entity it is linked to.

In ancient times and in certain cultures children were not named until up to three years. The child's parents would observe the actions and traits of the infant and formulate their name from who they were seen to be.

The Risen Scepter

 

Gen 49:10
The scepter will not pass away from Judah or a ruler from between his feet till SHILOH [Man of Rest] comes whom the nations will obey.
Beck Translation

In the Egyptian system of writing the scepter was the key symbol in the word to rule, and in the ancient eastern world a scepter was used as a symbol of royal authority and power.

Consequently, in the Bible the scepter was an emblem of a king's rule and his right to exclusively govern; the reign and ruling control exercised by a head of state.

Therefore, the scepter was recognition of complete sovereignty, and absolute power.

In the Old Testament we find scepters made of both gold (divine nature) and iron (judgment).

The Hebrew word group can be found used for a rod of correction or conversely, a shepherd's staff.



The Ruler Must Summon You

 

In the ancient world no one was allowed to approach a ruling sovereign unless they had been summoned.

To do this was to place one's life in one's hands.

Esther 4:11

Because of the Blood

We had been cut off in our trespasses and sins, which had separated us from the possibility of relationship with our Creator (Isa. 59:2; Eph. 2:1, Eph. 2:11-13).

Yet, because of the blood of Christ we have the ability to be restored in relationship with our God and Father

The Scepter has been Raised

Just as it was for Queen Esther when King Ahasuerus raised his scepter that she might enter the throne room (Esther 5:2), so it is for us whom have been redeemed by the blood of Christ.

The Father of all creation has raised His royal scepter that we might enter into His presence.

A scepter is a symbol of the Gospel
