BIBLE PASSAGE: Psalm 148:1-13 KJV (RCCG Sunday School STUDENT Manual 8 September 2019)

1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.

2 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.

3 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.

5 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.

6 He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.

7 Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:

8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word:

9 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:

10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:

11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:

12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:

13 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.

LESSON INTRODUCTION: Worshipping and praising God become glorious when believers call God by His names. The names do God used in the bible also also act as a roadmap to learning about His character. God’s names also reveal His true nature to us. His nature and character remain constant through all generations. The names of God help us experience how majestic God is, how deeply He loves us and what He can do for us. Knowing the names of God will help us to put our trust in Him. (Ps.9:10; Pro.18:10).




‘ELOHIM’ translated as GOD (Gen.1:1), is derived from the Hebrew word ‘EL’ which means strength or might, is generic (comprehensive) name of God. The compound form of ‘EL’ can be seen in the following manes among others:

EL-gibbowr “Might God” (Isa.9:6)
EL-elyown “The Most High God” (Gen.14:18-20; Eccl.5:8).
EL-gadowlwaw yare “The Great and Terrible God” (Deut.7:21).
EL- Shaddy”The Almighty God “(Gen.17:1).
EL-‘elohey Yisras’el ” The God of Israel “(Gen.33:20).
EL-owlam “The everlasting God” (Gen.21:33).
El-aman “The faithful God” (Deut.7:9.
EL-qannow “The jealous God” (Josh.24:19).
EL-ro’iy “The God who sees”(Gen.16:13).
EL-channuwmwawrachuwn ” The gracious and merciful God”(Jonah 4:2).
EL-qadowsh “God the holy one” (Josh.24:19).


Yahweh or Jehovah is the personal name of God. It is not a title like ‘Adonai’ translated ‘Lord'(Jer.33:2, Ps.110:1). It is the same name by which God introduced Himself as ‘I AM THAT I AM’ (Exodus 3:13-14). In the compound from, we have:

  1. Jehovah Rapha “The Lord who heals” (Ex.15:26).
  2. Jehovah Rohi “The Lord my Shepherd” (Ps.23:1).
  3. Jehovah Tsidkenu “The Lord our righteousness” (Jer.23:6).
  4. Jehovah Qadash “The Lord who sanctifies”(Lev.20:8).
  5. Jehovah Nissi “The Lord my banner”(Ex.17:15).
  6. Jehovah Shammah “The Lord is there” (Ezek.48:35).
  7. Jehovah Sabaoth “The Lord of Host” (Isa.13:4).
  8. Jehovah Jireh “The Lord who provides” (Gen.22:14).
  9. Jehovah Shalom “The Lord my peace” (Judges 6:24).

Believers expecting God’s manifestation in any situation or circumstances should worship Him by calling Him His names attributed to that situation. For instance, God should be worshipped as Jehovah Jireh when one is in need of divine provisions.

CONCLUSION: Know the names of God and call Him by His names. He will surely answer for you.
