Jacob said, Tell me…thy name. (God said) wherefore is it that thou..ask after my name (Gen 32:29).
Manoah said, what is they name? God said why askest thou…seeing it is a SECRET. (Judges 13:18).
Who has ascended up into heaven or descended?…what is his name? (Prov 30:4).
Moses said, they shall say to me what is his name? God would not tell so he said, I am that I am (Exodus3:13).
My people shall know my name in that day (Isaiah 52:6). That day, this means people did not know his name or world not know his name until that day. the day when he took on flesh and was born as a son.

The hidden name, hidden till time God took on flesh! Why because humans cannot know a thing till it takes on flesh, only then can it be given a name (Luke 3:38). God unknown is known by his name. to simply say ‘I believe in God’ is to say I believe in the unknown God such as it was in Pauls day. when he beheld an altar devoted TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. (Acts 17:23) whom therefore ye ignorantly worship declare I unto you…. He is LORD of heaven and earth and dwells not in temples made by hands (v18)

These next verses offer outstanding insight into the God that Paul knew.. ‘And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.’ (Acts 17:26-29)

It is in seeking the LORD that is ‘Jesus’ (Jesus is our Lord) that we find the Godhead. for in him dwells the fulness of the Godhead. (Col 1;9) Note, he is not in the Godhead but the Godhead dwells resides and lives totally in him Jesus… TO KNOW JESUS iS TO KNOW GOD.

The unknown God has become known in Jesus. The UNSEEN God is seen in Jesus. Jesus is the revelation and manifestation of he who is invisible immortal and the only wise deity. Further it is the name of JESUS that gives us the complete and final revelation of God in person. Jesus Emmanuel GOD WITH US  the one who saves us form our sins (Matt1;23). No such name was known in the Old testament, neither was salvation in his name known because his name was unknown. To us however today because we know him, we can be saved. ‘Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.’ Acts 2;38).
