The Names of several of these Gods appear in the Bible itself, to which Christians turn in their worship toward the author of, as the Supreme Being, as the True God, the creator of all mankind. It is fascinating, however, that Gods of all kinds have been called upon by their specific Name, while worshippers that rely on the Bible, as it to be from the one True God, fail to use the specific Name of that God and believed author thereof. How can this be? Did this God not want his Name known and used, as it's omission or scarcity from several Bible's shows, including the Catholic and King James versions. or Does another God not want the Bible authors Name known and used, and thereby hinders it's use?
One of the Gods Named above has questioned the Authority of the author of the Bible and he in fact does not want the God of the Bible worshiped, for he wants this worship from humans himself, and he does hinder the worship of this God as the Bible author relates. The hindering God is mentioned by Name in the Bible by the God and author of the Bible, and this hindering God's Name is Satan. This God Satan has done such a good job of hindering worship to the Bible God and deceiving humans, that he has actually been called the God of this world, by the God of the Bible at Revelation 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels with him." 2 Corintians 4:4 reads, "In whom the god of the world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." Satan did however agree to turn over all the worship and kingdoms to the Bible God's son Jesus, if...the Bible God's son alone would worship him (Satan), instead of his own father (Bible God and Author). Matthew 4:8 & 9 reads, "Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And sayeth unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me." This God Satan really wanted the Bible God's son to fail at his assignment on earth, because Satan is an enemy of the Bible God and will hinder as many plans of the Bible God as he can. Also read Psalms 106:36 & 37
Now we get back to the Names of Gods...We know how this God Satan deceives and tries to hinder worship to the Bible God, so now we must ask ourselves, what is the Bible Gods Name? or does he even have a Name? We know that the Bible God Named his son (Jesus), we read that the Bible God Named Adam, he Named the stars, humans all have Names, humans Name their pets. Humans use Names to call out to individuals or else how would we be summoned in a croud of other humans. The Bible itself contains many Names of individuals, if not how would we recall who they were as individuals? There is much in a Name. Children from the very beginning were given Names. Eve was Named by Adam and in turn Eve Named her son, Cain, which has a meaning of itself, as Names always do. Cain means ("Something Produced"). Isaac's firstborn son was Named Esau, meaning ("Hairy"). Now, we all know who these people were, how, because we remember the Names. We know of things they each did, their qualities, their faults and we would not be able to communicate in even the discussion of these or others, if Names did not exist.
It is well known that the current versions of the New Testament of the Bible has written throughout it, the Name of Jesus, he being the son of and sent by the God of the Bible. It may come as great suprise, but the God of the Bible has supplied the readers and worshippers with his Name as well, found in older manuscripts, but sadly, because of the hindering work done by the God Satan, many Bible translators have ommited the Name from certain versions of the Bible. The Bible God's Name was written in the older manuscripts in the Hebrew texts over 6800 times(see references below for appearances of Divine Name). Many feel that the use of the Name of the Bible God is not needed to worship him, because of the deceiving work, so skillfully done, by the God Satan. Humans now try to cover for their ignorance, in not knowing nor trying to find out, that the first writings of the Bible did contained the Bible God's Name, and they cover for this ignorance and say, "In worshipping the Bible God, use of his Name is not required." Required by who? Humans? Some even go so far as to refuse to pronounce the Name of the Bible God, feeling it is too divine and should not be uttered, while other's refute that the Name is not pronounced correctly, as the original Hebrews pronounced the Name. However, each of us and our own Names are uttered differently by different people that we associate with at times, and too, my and your Name is pronounced different in different languages, while the intent, of the one speaking about the person being spoken of, remains to and about the same individual. For example, if the divine Name of the Bible God should not be uttered or used at all, because of possible improper pronouncement, then the Names of Jesus, Jeremiah and many others should also be eliminated from the Bible, because these Names may also be pronounced in other ways. Jesus becomes Yehoh-shu'a in Hebrew and I-e-sous in Greek, Jeremiah is also Yir-meyah and Isaiah is also Yesha'-ya'hu. So it seems to be out of man's ignorance of the Bible as a whole, for the unuse of the Name to continue among most of the Bible readers.
Many tend to feel that God, Lord or Father is sufficient in their worship, but are these titles personal and distinctive? Would calling a person human be personal and distinctive? How does the Bible God feel about the absence of his Name being used in worship and prayer towards him? Are we to care what the Bible God wants in worship of him? Many of the Bible translations contain only a few verses where the Bible God's Name may be found, or absolutely not at all in some renderings. We now know why the Name has been omitted or just outright unused, lets find out if the Bible God requires the use of his Name, in worshipping him, and whether or not worshippers should diligently search for the way in which, the Bible God wishes to be worshiped and called on.
From the Bible God's scriptures in the KJV, we read from the Old Testament, before the birth of Jesus, so as to not confuse the reader in the term of Lord being applied to him as well:
Psalms 148:13, "Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven."
Psalms 105:1, "O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known the deeds among the people."
Exodus 9:16, "And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth."
Psalms 142:7, Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountiful with me."
Here are just a few more, but only a few, because there are too many occurances to write them all down:
Psalms 145:1-2, Psalms 148:5, Proverbs 18:10, Isaiah 12:4, Ezekiel 20:44
Now, onward in our search for light: Jesus prayed to his father, and in teaching his followers how to pray to his father, the Bible God, Jesus taught them a pattern/manner for prayer to follow, (see Matthew 6:8), and right after that, we read:
Matthew 6:9, "Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name......" If Jesus taught the manner in which the Bible God was to be approached in prayer, and Jesus mentioned that the prayee was to hallow, sanctify, the name, does it not seem, that he in fact, was saying that when petitioning and praying to the Bible God, to call on and use his father's Name? Lets read more verses to see if they coincide, shall we?
John 17:6, "I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world:...."
John 17:26, "And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it:......"
A few others for study: Revelation 2:3, Jeremiah 10:25, Romans 9:17, Acts 15:14
What is in a Name? That is completely up to you. In your search for truth, for answers and for things hidden by ones that hinder, peace and success be with you. For those that wish to know where the Bible God's name may yet be found, try the 3 different versions below and if you use an older version of King James, try Exodus 6:3 and Psalms 83:18. Unfortunately, in the compiling of this educational page, many Bible's were found to completely omitt the Divine name.
My Favorite Bible Verse, as found in the well known KJ version is Proverbs 2:1-5
"My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for his treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God."

Important note: There are many who have followed the belief, that the King James Version was the first ever translation. However, The King James Version was not the first version of the translated scriptural writings, nor was it even the first English version. Reference link below.
1)Saint Jerome (347-420?) is resposible for the first translation of scriptural writings and compiled as the Latin Vulgate.
2)John Wyclif (1328-1384), first english translation of the Latin Bible.
3)William Tyndale (1494-1536), translated New Testament into English and began printing in 1525. He was condemed for heresy and executed in 1535.
4)Miles Coverdale published a translation of the entire Bible in 1535.
5)King James Version published 1611.
