Names of God – YHWH Maccaddeschcem


Word: YHWH Maccaddeschcem

Translated: the LORD our sanctifier

Meaning: the One who makes man holy, or the One who sets man apart.  If you will remember an early devotion, to sanctify means to set apart or to separate for another’s use, i.e. to make holy. Although the Old Testament is replete with commands for man to be sanctified (an impossible task because of the sin nature inherited from Adam), we see in this name of God the foundation of sanctification – God Himself. He alone is the only One who can sanctify man, and He did this through the work of His Son on the cross.


NAU Leviticus 20:7 ‘You shall consecrate yourselves therefore and be holy, for I am the LORD your God. 8 ‘You shall keep My statutes and practice them; I am the LORD who sanctifies you.


NIV Leviticus 20:7 “‘Consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am the LORD your God. 8 Keep my decrees and follow them. I am the LORD, who makes you holy.


KJV Leviticus 20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God. 8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the LORD which sanctify you.
