Scriptures about the Name (Shem - character)
Scripture points towards the fact that the Almighty’s name IS important. I challenge you to look up every scripture that refers to the Almighty’s name / character.
There are a lot of them!
There are 85 references in Psalms that talk about the name / character ( In Hebrew -shem) alone! 138 chapters of Psalms include the actual Name Yahuwah. The other 12 chapters either mention the word 'name' (shem) or Elohim (God). So His name and character are proclaimed throughout the book of Psalms.
Here are just a few others:
Isaiah 42 v 8
“I am YaHuWaH; that is My NAME; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols.”
Isaiah 52 v 6
“Therefore my people shall know My NAME. Therefore in that day they shall know that it is I who speak; here I AM.”

“For at that time I will change the speech of the peoples to a pure speech, that all of them may call upon the NAME of YaHuWaH and serve him with one accord.”
Zechariah 13 v 2
“And on that day, declares YaHuWaH of hosts, I will cut off the NAMES of the idols from the land, so that they shall be remembered no more. And also I will remove from the land the prophets and the spirit of uncleanness.”
Malachi 2 v 2
“If you will not listen, if you will not take it to heart to give honour to My NAME, says YaHuWaH of hosts, then I will send the curse upon you and I will curse your blessings. Indeed, I have already cursed them, because you do not lay it to heart.”

“And HIS NAME—by faith in HIS NAME—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Yahushua has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all.”

“And when they had called in the apostles, they beat them and charged them not to speak in the NAME of Yahushua, and let them go.”

“So that, at the NAME of Yahushua every knee should bow, of those in the heavens, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.”
James 2 v 7
“Are they not the ones who blaspheme the honorable NAME by which you were called?”
Lastly we see a wonderful picture when the trumpet (shofar) sounds and Yahushua returns. What will be written on their foreheads? His NAME and His Father’s NAME!
Revelation 14 v 1
“Then I looked, and behold, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him 144,000 who had HIS NAME and HIS FATHER’S NAME written on their foreheads.”
Revelation 22 v 4
“They will see His face, and HIS NAME will be on their foreheads.”
THE TRUE NAMES ARE VERY IMPORTANT FOR OUR SALVATION!
” Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is NONE OTHER NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
Now you know the truth. Now you know the Father’s Name and the Son’s Name. What you do with this new found truth is now up to you.
Which Name will you choose to call upon?
