In 1984 a movie was introduced and was tagged with “Who are you going to call?”  The movie was called “Ghost Busters” and was centered on a phone call to the only people that could help you in a haunting situation.  You could not call a doctor, lawyer, plumber, or your neighbor to exercise a ghost problem.
Consider a problem/situation that involves:
Issues:                                                                                   Contact Person:
Health                                                                                    Accountant
Car Brakes                                                                            Dentist
Electrical                                                                                Pawnbroker
Legal Problem                                                                      Priest
If you have a health problem do you call your accountant?  How about  a brake problem in your car? Do you call your Dentist?
In many English bible translations the names and titles used by the Hebrew and Greek worshippers have been replaced with GOD or LORD.  While both terms are correct and used, we can have a deeper prayer and message using the names written in the original transcripts by the Hebrews and Greeks.  We can communicate and teach others how to have a more impactful relationship serving and teaching.
In this teaching, Pastor TeeJay will guide you through various names of GOD using scripture, Psalms 23.

      • Son 1 Cor. 1.30 (msg)
        31Take a good look, friends, at who you were when you got called into this life. I don’t see many of “the brightest and the best” among you, not many influential, not many from high-society families. Isn’t it obvious that God deliberately chose men and women that the culture overlooks and exploits and abuse, chose these “nobodies” to expose the hollow pretensions of the “somebodies”? That makes it quite clear that none of you can get by with blowing your own horn before God. Everything that we have—right thinking and right living, a clean slate and a fresh start—comes from God by way of Jesus Christ. That’s why we have the saying, “If you’re going to blow a horn, blow a trumpet for God.”
