Names of God

ADONAI

Meaning

The Lord my Great Lord.

Enforcement

God is the Master and majestic Lord. God is our authority.

Bible references

Psalms 8 Isaiah 40:3-5 Ezekiel 16:8 Habakkuk 3:19.

Commentary

Adonai is the plural of Adon. This term is the verbal parallel to Yahweh, Jehovah and YHWH (which was considered too holy to be pronounced). The word "Adonai" is not a proper noun nor is it directly a name of God. It is an emphatic form of the word "Adon" which means "lord" or "master". That is an statement of someone who is above everyone else, the one who is superior, that is why its common use is THE LORD.

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”.

Bible references

Isaiah 9:6.
