We take our name from God (Eph. 3:15)

“Every family

In heaven

And on earth

Takes its name

From God.”

ἐξ οὗ πᾶσα πατριὰ ἐν οὐρανοῖς καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς ὀνομάζεται,

Paul said, “Every family (πᾶσα πατριὰ) in heaven (ἐν οὐρανοῖς) and on earth (καὶ ἐπὶ γῆς) takes its name (ὀνομάζεται) from God (ἐξ οὗ).”  Paul explained that every family or tribe in heaven or earth got their name from God.  God, the Father, was in control of everything both in heaven and on earth.  He had the right to name everything and everyone.  All beings in heaven and on earth got their existence and thus their name from God.  Do you believe in the existence of God?
