Discussion for Isaiah 12:2

  • Rev. Autrey for verse 2
    Isaiah 12, verse 2, reads, 'See, God has come to save me! I will trust and not be afraid, for the Lord is my strength and song, he is my savation. ' Let 's get right to the point. We chide the JW 's for saying that Jesus is not God. They say that he is 'A ' God, and not the Jehovah of the Old Testament. But we Baptist and other mainstream Christians do the same thing. Just ask any Baptist preacher and he will say that Jesus is only God 's Son. And by Son he means that Jesus is a lesser figure than God the Father. The most famous Baptist mainline preacher says that he thinks of Jesus as a being separate from God. And that he hopes God will understand. Many Baptist say that God was in Jesus, but he was not Jesus. Or they make similiar statements. So again, why do we get upset with other groups like the JW 's for saying in the open what we say in our private thoughts. Again, Isaiah 12, verse, 2,says that God is coming to save us. This speaks of God as Immanuel Jesus being born in Bethlehem that Christmas day. This fulfilled all the promises of the Old Testament about God as our Savior! Paul knew this when he said that we must confess Jesus as Lord or God to be saved. The Father, then, is God 's other personality. the way God makes his decisions. But in all cases Jesus is the way God speaks to us and saves us. And there is yet another personality of God, the Holy Spirit, the way God inspires us to believe in what he is doing as Jesus. Pleas consider this!
  • This is how it is seen in the King James Bible, but the name "JEHOVAH" seen here is an English translation of Yehowah, the vocalization of (YHWH) Which is a Latinization of the Hebrew Tetragrammaton: יהוה (The proper name of God in written form) The name seen here should be spelled: Yehowah and pronounced: Ya - Ha Vay.
  • I think that it should be something done about his name being taken out HIS book. Like put it back so that more people will know who he is, the creator of all things, without him having given us his son, we wouldn't be here!
  • this name of god,i did not know,being a christian all my life,i was flabergasted to find out that the author and our god is called Jehovah,wawee
