    For thousands of years, Satan has been bringing dishonor and disdain to God’s Holy Name. Matter of fact, most Bible Translations have deleted, defaced, and removed God’s Name from scripture.

    The most important thing to Jesus was honoring his Father by making his Name known. (John 17:6) The Jews engaged in a superstition of not using God’s name, for the fear of taking God’s name in a worthless way. “You must not take up the name of Jehovah your God in a worthless way, for Jehovah will not leave the one unpunished who takes up his name in a worthless way.” (Exodus 20:7) So instead of using the Name that separated them from the nations as God’s chosen people, they withdrew from using God’s Name completely.

    “This is what you are to say to the sons of Israel, ‘Jehovah the God of YOUR forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, has sent me to YOU.’ This is my name to time indefinite, and this is the memorial of me to generation after generation.” (Exodus 3:15)

    Would you like to learn more about the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ? (1 Peter 1:3)
    How does (Psalm 83:18) read in your Bible?

    Names are given to created and begotten things. God is neither and has no name because he doesn't need one and no one was before him to give him one.

    Are you sure?

    What is the first thing to pray for in the Lord’s Prayer?

    What is the importance of Malachi 3:16, without first knowing God’s Name (Psalms 83:18)?

    Our Father (capital F). The Jews didn't know the Father. Christ glorified him.

    He is unnameable, since there is no one prior to him to give him a name.- Apocryphon of John

    Jesus always referred to him as Father (capital F) not father. He is immeasurable mind beyond ours.
