Thank you so much for the ping! And thank you, Dr. Eckleburg, for linking to the research thread!

Indeed, the Name of God, the Rock, was specially announced in Deut 32:4 which is part of the Song of Moses which will be sung in heaven (Revelation).

The Name was lost in the Septuagint and the Vulgate. But the apostles knew:

Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. – 1 Cor 10:1-4

All of the Names of God are vital to me because:

And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place.

Ye shall not do so unto the LORD your God. - Deu 12:3-4

For that reason, I pray that whenever any Christian hears any of the questions below, (s)he will respond exactly the same:

Who is I AM?
Who is The Lord?
Who is YHWH?
Who is HaShem?
Who is El Shaddai?
Who is Immanuel?
Who is Adonai?
Who is the Lily of the Valley?
Who is the Rose of Sharon?
Who is Alpha and Omega?
Who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords?
Who is The Word?
Who is the Holy Ghost?
Who is Jesus Christ?
Who is The Rock?

INDEED. Wonderful post.

Thanks.

I just finished the last several days several DVD's from last year's UFO conference by a Biblical set of Christians. Some great things. Will try and get you some copies or some such. One was an extensive discussion of THE BOOK OF ENOCH re THE WATCHERS etc.

I suspect the names of those gods to be pulled down would be congruent with the evil watchers who polluted mankind etc. What do you think?

It wasn't lost. It wasn't in all Hebrew scriptures. Apparently, the Jewish scribes who transalted their version of the Hebrew scripture into Greek did so because that version dind't have the word "rock" but the word Lord instead.

We could just as easily say the Jerusalem version added it by substituing the word Lord with the word tzuwr (for emphasis, for example), which by the way can mean cliff, rock, pagan gods, etc. and is used for God in the OT twice, as rock 64 times! So there's nothing special or holy about that word.

There are only two proper names by which God refers to Himself - I AM and Jesus. The others are colorful appellations but not proper names. Jesus commanded unto Simon bar-Jonah a new proper name - PETER - just as God commanded unto Himself a new proper name - JESUS.
