God is the creator and God owns it all but he created humanity in his own image.
We are made in the image of God, and he put us on this earth to exercise stewardship over everything on this earth to subdue it and have it all be under our oversight as we are under God and is part of this he gave the right to name the animals interesting is like Adam in his in his sinless state was able to see into the real essence of all things, so he called them what they were. It is not pictured as a distant random assigning of funny names. It's it's something about I know that's an elephant and I will call an elephant would whatever words he was using. It was a delegated authority of power to name something the capacity to see into the nature of what someone or something really is and call it what it is is essential for all wisdom and effectiveness in life.
If you can't see what or who something or someone really is.
Then you don't know how to be a steward over it if I would go to the hospital and and and and some nurse recognized me and said all pastor said, I'm glad you're here because there's a family over here that that is is is going through a very difficult time. They really needs my the prime minister with them. I would say thank you.
Yes I'm there with them.
Thanks for letting me know. But if a nurse approached me and had me confused and came up to me and said Dr. Dr. I'm glad you're here this man needs emergency surgery then would have a real problem on our hands. You need to know who somebody is and BL call them for who they are because of you. Call me Dr. your you're missing who I really AM and if you call me pastor that I walk right into that if you don't know the right name of something.
Your abilities subdue and steward is limited and you are made powerless.
It's frustrating it's it's it's a little unwise and it's it's dangerous. When we call something by the wrong name. What Romans chapter 1 is really all about is about with the power of sin at work in the world people no longer new, the proper way to call God. They didn't know who God was and therefore what Romans one is describing is the didn't know how to name anything else, such that you start: that which is good, bad, and that which is bad good and there is so much confusion because people don't know how to name something and judge mentalism arises when we don't name something properly and we assign wrong names and and we expect other people to act like what we've called them but we don't know the essence and and and and so part of promise of God to us when we become Christians part of your inheritance, the Scripture says it, you you are in Christ and you therefore are led by the spirit of God himself. You have pulsating with in your own being the very heart of God. You have the Bible says the mind of Christ and therefore part of your inheritance is what is being restored to you is the capacity to see things for what they really are.
You can name the animals, but Nebuchadnezzar couldn't name anything properly in all of Babylon had no idea how to name Daniel because they didn't know the name of God so they just given the wrong name San is beloved. When the world when the people of Babylon call you all the wrong name. I encourage you not only to reject it and not believe it but don't spend too much time on it. Part of the message of Daniel is look at this man just like Jesus. He didn't spend all his time trying to run around sand quit calling me names.
People that don't know your name. Go to call you by the wrong name you're not going to manage people that don't know the Lord. What do you do with people that don't know the Lord. Tell them about the hard, the only way that Babylon or America or anybody changes is by the power of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. So they know doesn't spend is time going home. No I'm not. Delta shadows are. I may tell you who I Empire called what the Empire was going to call them but the Bible called him Daniel.
God knows your name. She knows you because a major. He knows you because he redeemed you he can name you because he bought the attempt of the enemy king them to give foreigners the wrong name is a picture of a spiritual battle, Daniel, beautiful name means God is my judge. It's changed about the shadows are old lady wife of the God bell protect the king had Anaya.
What a beautiful name whenever you see that ending this out of Yahoo. Most of the time we do know is that is the form of the name the covenantal name the personal name if you will of the Lord that is revealed to Moses and the burning bush and it is too holy in the Hebrew mind to even speak Yahweh.
It is short for Yahweh yacht you had Anaya which means Yahweh's gracious and had Anaya as name is changed to Shadrach which scholars think probably means either I'm fearful very fearful of, or a command of our coup, the moon God Misael theirs are ending L like Elohim love this name Misael and what it means in Hebrew means, who is what God's who is what God's that's Alan Wright will have more teaching in a moment. Today's important series.
It's shocking how quickly American values of changed suddenly mostly little go to church or have a biblical worldview. Everything has changed so much that maybe you feel like a foreigner in your own culture. I was a Christian supposed to live in a post-Christian world we fight against it.
We decide our light in the midst of it. We pull away from it.

Azariah is Ya means Yahweh is a helper and Azariah Ya's name is changed to Abednego which means servant of the shining one Nebo interestingly is you go through the narrative you come to light. Daniel chapter 2 and the king declared in verse 26 to Daniel whose name was Delta shadows are. Are you able to make known the drain. See how towards it to Daniel, whose name was Delta shadows are who was called Delta shadows are same thing in Daniel chapter 4 verse seven, at last, Daniel came in before me. He who was named Delta shadows are after the name, my God, this is why the Bible is talking and in chapter 4, it begins to shift and Nebuchadnezzar acknowledges Daniel as Daniel in chapter 5 the Queen of the new King, whose name is Bell shadows are actually calls him Daniel and then later in Daniel chapter 5 Belshazzar the king flat out calls him Daniel and Daniel 513. The text says that Daniel was brought in before the king and the king answered and said to Daniel, you are that Daniel one of the exiles of Judah, whom the king my father brought forth from Judah. I think the point is he's Daniel and no Empire can change that.
No earthly realm could change it in the spiritual battle.
Therefore, it is very important to not fall for what the enemy is trying to name you and is also important to remember who your enemy is love the story of David and Goliath. You remember when David comes in a first speaks to King Saul and his urging King Saul to let him go and fight Goliath and Saul tries to label David because Saul is jealous and mentally unstable and has no faith or courage. He says the David you are but a youth. You can't fight him. David doesn't receive the label you are nothing more than a youth and instead he talks about his years as a shepherd, and he says the Lord has delivered me from the pole of the lion and from the paw of the bear and he who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from this uncircumcised Philistine as well. That was David's name for Goliath didn't call them the giant. He didn't call them the great warrior.
He didn't do like all the other Israelites and surround think about the size of his short sword in his shield and how much all of his armor weighed. He just called them the uncircumcised Philistine was all that mattered to David because circumcision was the sign of the covenant and what he was saying was, who is this man who is not in covenant with God to defy the armies of the living God.
Don't let somebody who's out of covenant with God. Tell you who you are. They don't know who you are. I love the name Daniel God is my judge. It's like this whole story of Daniel. It's is making this point God is the supreme King he's over everything. It might look like that Nebuchadnezzar is in charge, but he is not, it might look like Darius the new King is in charge.
He is not in my look like Belshazzar is a chart it is he is not my look like the whole Babylonian Empire is in charge. They are not in fact we will see a dream coming up very soon in the story in which there will be four empires that will come one after the other, until there is one that is made of stone that is not cut with human hands and it destroys all of the other kingdoms in this kingdom is eternal is is a story about the invincibility supremacy and power of the one supreme God and that God Daniel said is my job which he is the one that matters throw me in the lion's den, but you're not my judge what God determines is what will come to pass.
Be a wonderful thing ever come to a point in your life you quit trying to please everybody else because you come to this basic awareness that what God thinks about you is all that matters in the Daniel so this is emphasis on Daniel, whose name suggests, God my father in heaven is the only one whose opinion ultimately prevails or matters who is a young man who goes through a period of preparation who is like a foreigner in a culture that's unfamiliar and yet he is so why these people go and he's promoted and yet at the same time he is persecuted and he is thrown into a tomb like den of lions sealed with a stone, and while he is in that tomb the mouth of the roaring lion is shut up by an angel and Daniel comes back as if alive again. Sound familiar sound familiar.
Interestingly enough, when the story of Jesus is being told in the Gospels of the early important points that angel coming to Marion coming to Joseph and telling them what they should call this boy you to be given the right to give him his name, but you shall call him Jesus, you shall call him Joshua Ya Yahweh Shula's salvation. Jesus is just the transliteration of his Hebrew name Joshua you shall call his name Joshua because of the Lord Saints and this boy is going to be your savior, get his name right.
Don't call them by the wrong think what interestingly is that in the birth narratives of Jesus. It really begins with the story of John the Baptist being born the son of Elizabeth and Zechariah.
Maybe remember the story is very fascinating. Zechariah is told by the angel that Elizabeth will bear this child and the angel says and you shall call his name John and Zechariah, as I what will be a sign unto me, that I'll know all this is really no true if an angel comes to you and tells you something like that. Don't ask for another sign so he says.
Angel says he'll be aside, you can't talk until the baby is born you cannot talk less you ask another dumb question but anyway and so for nine months of her pregnancy and all this going on. Zechariah just have a go around trying to motion the people write things down and then the babies born at St. days later, the circumcision, the domain name them, and Zechariah can't talk, but an angel given him the instructions of the Lord, you shall name him John.
And they get ready to name the boy Zechariah that if you been struck mute for nine months and you were told to name them John, you'd be like, like Zechariah to their gear as I what I like look on Zechariah me know. Zechariah Junior right and and Zechariah's or the like, and not let let you think that it is right. Name is John and I say okay John and then his mouth is open up that starts the stories in an angel comes to marriage and interested calling the right name and then all throughout his life people: the wrong this is amazing and is his first sermon. These amazing enemies says incredible incredible things that just so anointed, but people say is the carpenter's son, they said this is not Mary's boy: wrong thing. That is the carpenter's son but you're missing it. If you think is the carpenter's son is the son of God, and then they save you, not the brother of James and Joseph, and Simon, you're missing it is their natural brother, but he is the firstborn of all creation, the firstfruits of many Sun's is not just brother James and Joseph, and Simon. He will be brother to millions upon millions it's Alan Wright teaching. What's your name rejecting. Labels over your life. It's shocking how quickly American values have changed. Suddenly, most people don't go to church or have a biblical worldview.

Even Jesus had to keep centered on who he was.
Even through life's toughest moments that he experienced while walking yeah if you could look back over Jesus's life and see that one of the principal strategies of hell against him was to try to rename him label him a blasphemer label him someone worthless, because he is from Nazareth on and on but the ruling identity of Jesus life was from his father. This is my son in whom I am well pleased.
