21 Names of God - Part 1/3

(EDIT: There's a new poll on these posts. Look at the right ---> and scroll to the top. "21 Names of God - Part 1/3, which are your favorite?". Check it out.)

I decided to do a blog post on the many names of God. Honestly, there are more than just twenty-one names for Him, we could call God many wonderful things, because He is wonderful, He's our Creator. But for now, I shall just do a blog post on some names that most people don't know or have forgotten.
**Since they have references in the Bible, and meanings, and pronunciation, I've decided to do seven per blog posts. So there will be three all together. Enjoy. :)**

If you'd like more information on meanings and/or where they came from, I can do another post on that. These are pretty interesting and important. There are way more references in the Bible for these meanings, but four was enough. :)
I hope you did like reading about them, there's still fourteen more to go, so stay tuned in a little!

God bless,

What's really cool about the names of God is that they testify to the trinity. If I remember right, a name like "El" is singular for God, but a name like "Elohim" is naturally plural! (I think the 'im' makes it plural) Anyways, great post, I'll be looking forward to the other names!
