THE NAMES OF GOD

By Synthia Esther
Through out the ages of humanity past and present. Through out the theological shifts in history, our Holy Father God's name remains steadfast, tried and true. Though cultural shifts often change our cultural views. And intellectuals and philosophers debates swing like a pendulum on a string. Their conclusions are deemed from finite minds that cannot attest to the synchronizes, coincidences, and retrocausal shifts of perception. God is real, and He goes by many names, described in many ways.
