His Covenant Names
“YHWH – Yahweh – Jehovah – Lord God – “”I AM”””
“Adon – Adonai “Lordship”
Jehovah is His eternal name. This means that He is “The self-existent One. The Ever Present One” He always was, He is, and He will always be!.
The Jewish people do not speak the name of God because it is too sacred to be uttered by mans’ lips. They use “Lord” or “Addonai”
We have gone to the other extreme in our handling of His precious name. We have either dwindled His name down to a curse word or as our buddy whom we know so much that we call him what we want because He wants us to like Him so much that we think He doesn’t care how we handle His name.
We should use His name in reverence like the Jewish people. We should respect God and His name

He was placed on a tree for our sins. He changes the bitterness inside us and makes it sweet!
Jesus Christ is the Jehovah- Rapha of the Old Testament and He shows us this by a pool of water. John 5
This man confessed his helplessness and Jesus healed him. This man was forgotten. He didn’t ask Jesus to forgive him, he just testified to his helplessness. He had given up hope. He had come to the end of himself (Proverbs 14:12, Romans 4:5)
Jesus deliberately healed on the Sabbath because it was a covenant between God and the Jewish people but they broken this covenant (John 1:11) so there was no need to honor the covenant with them
