(SOLVED) What Does The Word Hallowed Be Thy Name Mean?

In what way do we want God to hallow His name? In what way is His name to be set apart or made holy? One writer explains it this way: “When Jesus petitions God to hallow his name, he is asking that God act in such a way that he visibly demonstrates his holiness and his glory” (Albert Mohler in The Prayer That Turns the World Upside Down: The Lord’s Prayer as a Manifesto for Revolution, p. 61). God demonstrates His holiness in the world by creating a holy people who will call on His name, proclaim the gospel, and accomplish good works (Ephesians 2:10) 👍
AGIASQHTWAGIAZW. From a negative, and GH, the earth, a thing separated from the earth, or from earthly purposes and employments. As the word sanctified, or hallowed, in Scripture, is frequently used for the consecration of a thing or person to a holy use or office, as the Levites, first-born, tabernacle, temple, and their utensils, which were all set apart from every earthly, common, or profane use, and employed wholly in the service of God, so the Divine Majesty may be said to be sanctified by us, in analogy to those things, viz. When, we separate him from, and in our conceptions and desires exalt him above, earth and all things. (we give thanks to Tyshell Delong from Anshun, China for pointing this out to us).
Image #2 also describes that when Moses asked God what name he should tell the Israelites was the name of the God sending him to rescue them from Egypt, God replied, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you'” (Exodus 3:14). The name of God YHWH is linked to this concept of His self-existence. God’s name was thought to be so holy that Jews would not utter it aloud for fear of profaning it. YHWH, also called the tetragrammaton or written as Yahweh or Jehovah, simply became known as “the Name” or Ha Shem in Hebrew. Even today, many Jews will write “G–d” rather than “God” in order to show reverence to God’s name. (edited by Robert Thomas from Nanchong, China on July 11, 2021)
Image #3
Seven weeks ago we began a series of messages on the names of God. It was inspired by Psalm 9:10, “Those who know thy name put their trust in thee.” The better we know the name of God, the more we will trust him. And the more we trust him, the more risks we will take for the sake of his glory. And the more risks we are willing to take for the sake of his glory, the more bold we will be in our witness, the less dependent we will be on material comforts, and the more readily we will volunteer for active duty on the frontiers.
