What is the role and significance of the Angel of God’s presence? What name does scripture reveal as the forever name of God the Father? Though some assert that the name Yahweh always refers to the Father, we will see the title Yahweh often used to refer to the Angel of God’s presence and that the Angel of God’s presence is none other than the one who became Jesus Christ. Let us be truly encouraged and strengthened by God’s great plan through which God the Father and Jesus Christ are bringing many sons and daughters to glory!
