Names of God

SHEKINAH

Meaning

The glory of God, presence of God or His manifestation in physical form.

Enforcement

God for us or what we know about God, what He manifests to us. It is used when God manifests in physical form.

Bible references

Leviticus 16:2 Exodus 40:35 Genesis 9:27.

Commentary

It is a feminine Hebrew and Aramaic noun, The word Shekinah is from the Hebrew word “shekinot” and actually is in the Bible where God is said to “settle in” or “dwell with.” it is used when God manifests in physical forma, although in the contemporary Hebrew it is also presented as the manifestation of God's Spirit. It was a very strong glow of Light that was sometimes revealed where there was a Covenant between God and a man, Hebrews or the humankind in general. That used to occur in the Temple, and the first time on Mt Sinai. It occurred once at the inauguration of the first Temple, when the glory of God came down as a fire from heaven to burn up Solomon's sacrifice and the glory was such that no one could enter that place. A shining, brighter than the sun. In Haggai, God says to the people that " the glory (Shekinah) of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house". And that is exactly what was fulfilled when our Lord Jesus entered into the temple ( this means that the VISIBLE presence of God was there= Jesus Christ). Besides, the incarnation of Christ is already the glory of God among men as described by John: "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father" (John 1:14). The future glory of God, Shekinah, the next time the VISIBLE PRESENCE OF GOD will be manifested, is going to be the returning of Christ, according to his own words in the book of Matthew 25:31 "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne".

Names of Jesus

WONDERFUL COUNSELOR

Meaning

Jesus is our defense attorney.

Explication

Christ is our wonderful counselor before God. He is our mediator and intercessor, who calms us down and advices us. As our lawyer before God, He defends us in the court of justice of God, and he offers himself as payment for our transgressions. Christ himself is therefore identified as that “wonder” because we could say that Christ is “the wonder of God in person”. Not only is Christ the greatest "Wonder of God" but He is the one who has done and would do "Wonders" in his people. A counselor is someone who guides others by warning or exhortation. Christ said about himself, “my words are Spirit and are Life”. He also said, “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them, will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7). So, why not to think of Christ as that “wonderful counselor” as stated by the apostle Peter when he said, “you alone have the words of eternal life”.
