  Are there 100 names for God?  

No doubt God has more than 99 names. The 100th name of God has been missing.

In the New Testament it says, “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love...” (1 John 4:16)

You may have wondered why Jesus focused on God as a Father and Love.

What does it mean that God is Love and God is a Father?

God is not a frightening God. He doesn’t have a big stick and follow us just to punish us when we make a mistake. God loves you and he loves me. God loves the sinners but hates the sin. The Bible says, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Roman 5:8). In His love He doesn’t mislead anyone. “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2: 3-4).

The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16). God loves us as a Heavenly Father.

If you love your children, you want to give them very good things and bring them close to you. As a father -- even if you are not a good father -- you know what is good and what is bad for your children. The same is true with our Heavenly Father. Jesus said, “If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him.” (Mathew 7:11).

You can experience the love of God the Father if you come to him. This is the 100th name of God that has been missing. He wants you to experience his wonderful names “God is Love” and “God the Father”. God’s arms are open for you to come to your heavenly Father and have peace.
