I believe God is the universe in its entirety. I don't think our human minds can even fathom god because he is everything.

I assume it's for a "fail-safe" in case of an error in spelling or punctuation. The Name of G_d demands great reverence and appropriateness; some have said that to even ascribe a name to G_d is blasphemous. Perhaps it's "G_d's Ways" being interpreted and assigned a name?

On Wikipedia, it states under "In ancient Judaism," that "Josephus, who as a priest knew the pronunciation of the name, declares that religion forbids him to divulge it."

And the site states also that: "the name of the God of the Jews was one of the great names, in magic, heathen as well as Jewish, and miraculous efficacy was attributed to the mere utterance of it."

And "in the last generations before the fall of Jerusalem, however, it was pronounced in a low tone so that the sounds were lost in the chant of the priests."

Really you decided to make a thread instead of using google for such a simple question?

Do you realize you bumped off someones elses post and wasted "new topics " page refresher ?

questions 1 ) Why did you not use google ?

Really you decided to troll in a thread instead of using common decency for such a simple question?

Do you realize you are miserable and this is the one highlight of your day.

questions 1 ) Why did you post a reply and waste your precious whatever responding.

When in doubt ask the Rabbi.
