Name= Character

Scripturally, a name represents one’s character. This is why our Father changed the name of his servants (Genesis 17:5,15; 32:28; 35:10), and told parents what to name their unborn child (Genesis 16:11; 17:19, 1 Chronicles 22:9, Isaiah 7:14, Hosea 1:4,6,9, Matthew1:21,24, Luke 1:13,31), and why men have chosen one name over another for their child (Genesis 35:18, Luke 1:59-60), and why name’s of cities have been changed (Genesis 28:19): to reflect their character!

God desires to seal His name, His character, and His Law in us (Isaiah 8:16). God’s name and character is His Word, which contains His Law.
