The nations will see your righteousness, And all kings your glory; And you will be called by a new name Which the mouth of the LORD will designate. Isaiah 62:2
Are you ready to be designated a new name by God? So what does this actually mean? If we look throughout history, our names typically represented who we are or our occupation. For example Smith was for a Blacksmith , Mason is for a masonary, ect. Ect.
Well the same is throughout the Bible, Hebrew names always had a specific meaning. For example the name Jesus , which the original Hebrew translation is Yeshua means “Salvation of God”. He was given that specific name to show the world he is the Messiah or Savior of the world.
Throughout the Bible also names were changed, for example Jacobs name was changed to Israel. Why? Well the meaning of the word Israel means to “wrestle with God” “Triumphant with God” , if we remember Jacob wresteld with the Angel (Genesis 32) Jacob also had 12 sons which represented the 12 tribes of Israel. Jacobs destiny was established by his new name.
Fast forward to the New Testament, Jesus changed Peters name from Simon. Why? Because the Hebrew meaning of Peter is “Rock” Jesus was entrusting Peter to build the Christian Church when he ascended to Heaven. Therefor Jesus gave him a New Name and his divine destiny.
This is the same for us, God has a divine destiny and purpose for us all. When God says he will call you by a “New Name” means he is going to reveal his purpose for our lives. As Jesus said “Many are called but few are chosen “ (Matthew 22:14) Many people don’t accept their calling by God, don’t miss your calling in Jesus Name Amen
