My New Name

2 Comments


Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it. Revelation 2:17 New International Version

When researching for a recent article I discovered our last name is in reference to the clan we are born into ( that is what your family name is).

Since becoming a Christian we belong to Jehovahs family it is only right we call ourselves of the family of Jehovah.

My parents gave me the name of Joseph. Unbeknownst to them Joseph means Jehovah will increase. Boy has He ever. He has blessed me with increasing intimacy with Him, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. He has blessed with with increased wisdom. He has increased me with service unto Him. I believe Jehovah directed them to give me that name. As such the first name shall remain.

Therefore my new name is Joseph son of Jehovah ( when we become Christians we are a child of Jehovah, this is my God given name).

And you know what? It feels natural to say : my name is Joseph son of Jehovah

But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name John 1:12 The Holy Bible Amplified Version What is your God given name?

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Abba (God our Father) for the supreme blessing of being a member of Your holy family and with the wonderful name You have lovingly provided me with. I thank You in the name of He who has the most beautiful name Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. I guess that’s how people were known in the olden days as being the son of someone. So to say ‘Hi, I am Max, the son of Jehovah’ is indeed awesome. This is such an uplifting post.

    • It confuses them and they think I am saying “I am THE son of Jehovah.” That opens the avenue to explain that I am not The son of Jehovah but rather A son of Jehovah. From there it is a great way to share our testimony.
