The name “Lord” appears how many times?

The word or name “Lord” appears far more in the Bible than many would believe. According to some counts, it is in the Old Testament (KJV) 7234 times. There are other interesting number counts on this page and it depends upon which translation that you use regarding how many times a specific word is mentioned, but it is an interesting page.

Why did I bring this up today? Because, many people seem to wonder about some words in the Bible and how many of them there are. Why does that make a difference? It may not, really, but for some people it may make a bit of a difference. God’s Word does say many things and it is good to know what and why it is said. The only reason that you would need to know this is because you won’t be fooled into believing something which is not in there if you have read it enough to know what is found in it and what is not!

God inspired the writers to write His Word down not because He couldn’t remember, but because we can’t always remember the exact words which He said to us about certain things and why. Which is another reason why each of us needs to read it and study it. Taking a verse or two out of context renders them useless because some of Psalms and Proverbs has no meaning unless you read the whole chapter and verse. Taking any verse on its own renders it unable to be understood in its entirety because the paragraph before and after may lead you to a different understanding of it than just the verse itself.

The shortest verse in the Bible which was written about a sad day in Jesus’ ministry, even though He had told His disciples about what was happening, is: “Jesus wept.” Unless you read the before and after verses, that small verse doesn’t mean much except that it shows how Jesus felt emotions just as deeply as the rest of us. He wept because his friend had died, not because He couldn’t save Him from death but because He had to bring him back from Paradise to live again. It was necessary to do so for the people to see that He had the power to do it even after four days. Not for bragging rights, but to show Who He was and Who He is!

Give your heart to Him, seek Him in the Word and learn more about Him and in that way, one chapter or two every day, you will get to know our Creator and Lord better than you ever have before.

One Response to “The name “Lord” appears how many times?”

  1. I agree Pastor 50 we need to know God’s Truth not what Man thinks unless they are True to His Word. We not only need to read Scripture in context but we need to see the Big Picture, Genesis to Revelation but even some well known Theologians past and present didn’t, they only had or have partial understanding. Some well known Translations not just those used by Cults are in error with Scripture being omitted, words changed and added, also meanings of words change over time or new words are used and in the Hebrew too some words have more than one meaning depending what context they are used in such as Fear, Fat, Laughter Feet etc.

    This is why we need to read Scripture with God’s Wisdom and Empowering by the Holy Spirit (1Corinthians 2:9-16) which we ask for and than Trust in Jesus The Living Word and our only Spiritual Teacher to lead us into all Truth which the Pharisees etc didn’t do…..

    John 5:39-40 Search the scriptures for in them ye think ye have Eternal life and they are they which testify of me And ye will not come to me that ye might have life..(KJV)

    1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any Man Teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things, and is Truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath Taught you, ye shall abide in Him.

    1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding that we may know Him that is True and we are in Him that is True even in His Son Jesus Christ this is the True God and Eternal life.

    Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore for there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed and hid that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness that speak ye in Light and what ye hear in the ear that preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)

    Psalm 32:8I will instruct you and Teach you in the way you shall go. I will guide you with Mine eye

    2 Peter 1:19-21 We have also a more sure word of prophecy, whereunto ye do well that ye take heed as unto a light that shineth in a dark place until the day dawn and the day star arise in your hearts. Knowing this first that no Prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the Prophecy came not in old time by the will of man but Holy Men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.(KJV) (1Corinthians2:9-16 KJV)
