Discussion for Deuteronomy 12:18

  • Names of God Meaning - in Reply on Deuteronomy 12:18
    This term, "God Almighty" in verse one is the English translation of the term El Shaddai.Wherever we find the term "God Almighty," it is speaking of the revelation of God using the Hebrew name El Shaddai.

    Who is El Shaddai? My favorite definition and the one we will useEl Shaddai is the God of "more than enough." "Enough" is that which is required to meet our needs. "More than enough" is having extra left over to meet the needs of others. The revelation of El Shaddai brought with it a pronouncement of fruitfulness and prosperity. You are blessed to be a blessing!

    YouTube has that song: El Shaddai

    I understand that God's Name, El Shaddai, would reflect this. That Name essentially means, 'The Almighty One' or 'The Overpowerer'. In His greatness, El Shaddai also reflects God as the All-Sufficient One (the God Who is Enough), enough to sustain & provide for every need of His Universe, including mankind & more so, to His children.

    If you live in the United States, I have found many nice King James Bibles at the Goodwill Stores. Many are under 5 Dollars. Try Salvation Army too.

    If you are outside of the United States, you can call 1-800-700-7000 and probably get one. If you need one in your language, see if they have those.

    Some people give money to those ministries, so all people in need can get a Bible. What a great way to love your neighbor.

    If writing to the U.S. is a problem then try first at the Bible Society Office in the Philippines (there are several: Manila, Cebu City, etc.) & state your need & interest to learn more about God & willingness to accept a second-hand Bible. You can get more information on their website: bible dot org dot ph There is also a Gideons office in your country.

    Write to this address and state that you need a Bible with Old and New Testament, mailed to you. Give an address they can mail a Bible to.

    Tell them a CBM partner gave you this info: Mickey Walker, Hutto, Texas. Ask them to pray for your finances. It might take 2 weeks. Be patient. :)
