Second Coming Jesus and the New Name

The Three Names of God

Jesus Christ outlined the path to salvation in His baptism instructions:

“‘Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’”

Matthew 28:19–20

To secure the salvation of our souls, baptism in the three names of God is essential: the name of the Father, the name of the Son, and the name of the Holy Spirit. Each of these names corresponded to its respective age.

In the age of the Father, Jehovah was the Savior’s name.

“‘I, even I, am the LORD [Jehovah, ASV], and apart from me there is no savior.’”

During this time, salvation was attainable only through the name of Jehovah. However, as the age of the Father concluded and the age of the Son began, the name of the Savior changed.

“‘Jesus … Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven [Jesus] given to mankind by which we must be saved.’”

In the age of the Son, salvation exclusively came through the name Jesus. Despite different names, the coherence lies in the fact that God the Father Jehovah is also God the Son Jesus. Simultaneously, this proves that salvation is accessible only through the name relevant to the era. Since the age of the Father and the age of the Son have ended, the names Jehovah and Jesus can’t grant us salvation. Hence, the Bible introduces a new name for the Savior in the age of the Holy Spirit.

“‘The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name.’”

Therefore, Jesus’ new name signifies the Savior’s name in the age of the Holy Spirit—our present age. How can we identify the name of the Holy Spirit?

“‘... These are the very Scriptures that testify about me.’”

We can recognize the Savior in the age of the Holy Spirit only through the Bible.
