This April on Sue’s Trifles the theme is the names of God. There may be more than one name for some of the letters. There may be others I have omitted. I hope that by going through the alphabet together we may learn more about the nature of God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Intercessor is a word meaning one who intercedes for another. If a child is in trouble at school, for example, a parent may go to speak to the teacher on behalf of the child. The parent intercedes. Jesus intercedes with God the Father. Believers intercede for other people, often adding the words “in the Name of Jesus” or “for the sake of your only son, our Saviour Jesus Christ”, claiming the promise of John 14:13.
Immanuel is a name of Jesus meaning God with us. It may also be written, “Emmanuel”.
Ichthus is not a name used in prayer to God. Rather it is an acronym using Greek letters, which translates into English as Jesus, Son of God, Saviour. It is represented by the symbol of a fish.
All the names or titles represented by Ichthus will appear in their proper places in the alphabet. J is next – see you tomorrow!
