Abel Damina, the controversial Nigerian televangelist and general overseer of Abel Damina Ministries, addressed "The Law And The Prophets Part 12 (May 19, 2022)" via a live Facebook broadcast a few minutes ago. While lecturing on the subject, the preacher revealed why God has no name.
Pastor Dr. Abel Damina: "The Old Testament does not contain a comprehensive revelation of God, but rather a progressive revelation of God's character." They lacked revelation understanding because they had not been begotten of the Spirit.
Therefore, the nature of God was gradually revealed via their daily activities. Therefore, when people encountered God in a particular way, they ascribed to Him a name that expressed His character. Adonai, Elohim, El Shaddai, El Elyon, Yahweh, and others are small hints of the character of God.
This is not a comprehensive revelation of God's character because God cannot be named. Names are used to differentiate between items and people. God has no peers, so there is no one with whom to contrast him. Moses asked, "What is your name?" The Lord replied, "I am who I am." I am, is not a name, but rather a capability descriptor.
"That is to say, he can be anything he desires." If he wants to be God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, he will do so. Stop labeling him; you can only characterize his abilities based on your own. "
