The tremendous power of words is no more evident than what is seen in Scripture. The revelation of the names of God speak of some aspect of His Deity, His position or function.

Names of God
Throughout the Old Testament Scriptures, God presented through his prophets
and by ritual worship the coming of Messiah, the One who would crush the
serpent’s head as promised in the Garden. The sacrifice of an innocent animal,
primarily, an unblemished lamb, would serve to portray the coming of the One
proclaimed by John the Baptizer, as the Lamb of God. One of the most vivid
pictures of this is recorded for us in Genesis as Abraham is instructed to sacrifice
his son of promise, Isaac.
