What's in a name? Names identify, explain, and serve to distinguish one from another. What do God's names reveal to us about Him, coming from Him?


Romans 4:19 ESV
He (Abraham) did not weaken in faith when he considered his own body, which was a good as dead (since he was about 100 years old), or when he considered the barrenness of Sarah’s womb.

This scripture mentions Abraham’s age and this is no small matter. Remember that “99 is the number of man’s end, the judgment of man and all his works” (Bullinger).

Ten times ten equals 100. And the number 100 signifies “the perfection of Divine order.” So Abraham moved quickly (less than a year) to Divine order once he had come to his end and could see God by His Name.

O that Name!
