“They will call on My name, and I will answer them.”

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and inaccessible things, which you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3.


Call, qara‘; Strong’s #7121: To call out to someone; cry out; to address someone; to shout, or to speak out, to proclaim. Many times qara implies calling out loudly in an attempt to get someone’s attention (Isa. 58:1), or for calling upon the Lord or His name (Isa. 55:6; Joel 2:32). It can also mean “to name something,” that is call it by its name, as God did when He called the light Day and the darkness Night (Gen. 1:5).

Qara’ includes the naming of places, holidays, and or children; for example. Leah praised the Lord for the birth of her son, and “called his name Judah” (Gen. 29:35).

Our text has a significant word “Mighty” NKJ that actually speaks of things that are inaccessible, incredible, and hard for man to comprehend.

“They will call on My name, and I will answer them.” Have you made the call today? I have never gotten a busy signal, have you?

    I have never gotten a busy signal, Manny.

    All I need do is qara‘ on His name and He is there. It is interesting how this word is associated with naming things.

    Thanks for teaching me a bit more of the Hebrew language.

    God’s blessings…
