    we see in psalms 2 how the nations rage against the nation of the jews also the pray in Psalms 83 for God to deliver them in the last days could help seeing it is now future that God Almighty will save them thsmk God for his promise.

    His NAME is JESUS CHRIST. There are NOT 3 GODS, only ONE that manifests Himself as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. John 14:8-9 " Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show Show us the Father?"

    Hallowed is interpreted as one of God's attributes or character, meaning he is holy, honorable, sacred, sanctified, and should be reverenced.

    Fmkhoe; The Lord's prayer; "Hallowed be thy name" The word Hallowed here is an adjective. It is saying his name is looked upon as; sacred, deserving honor, reverend, esteemed, worthy, holy. He is not called Hallowed for the purpose of identification like: Jim, Susie, Bill, Tom, etc.
    I hope this helps. I did not write this as rebuke, only for your information.

    I think it's referring to God's nature, rather than a personal name in this instance.
  • Fmkehoe
    When praying the Lords Prayer, I always wondered, if His name is "hallowed", then what is His name?. I'm glad to have found out that He does indeed have a name.
