“They looked to Him and were RADIANT, and their faces will never be ashamed”—Psalm 34:5
A Brand New Name
Your life has already changed, hasn't it? First YOU found Hope at Last and then you began your Restoration Journey.
Why a Brand New Name?
Having a Brand-New Name from God will allow you to "minister" to others more discreetly, while also being fully transparent in your praise reports and journals—and be ready for when GOD calls you to start your own Ministry! Each of our ministers uses a BNN— that has afforded them complete transparency and discretion.
Before you shy away from the concept of being a minister, it's important to understand the definition of "minister" which is a VERB or an Action that simply means: tend to, care for, take care of, look after, attend to, see to, help, assist. More than likely you've been "ministering" or caring for your family and friends or coworkers already. Now you can do so without uncovering the sins or details that are better left unsaid.
Also, the reason He led each of us through the valley of the shadow of death, which began our Restoration Journey, and why He allowed this crisis in our lives, was in order for us to minister to (help) and reach out to other hurting women—giving them hope— Hope At Last!
And to help, like our ministers, you too need to remain discreet and begin using His BNN to protect your family and others who are part of your testimony. How do you know what it is, what is the process?
Isaiah 54:4-6 “‘For your Creator will be your new Husband; the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name! He is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, the God of all the earth. For the Lord has called you back from your grief— as though you were a young wife abandoned by her husband,’ says your God.”
First, you need to understand that He has called you to remove your grief, then with your new Husband, you as His bride, together, the you two can minister to other women, who like yourself, have been abandoned and are grieving without hope.
Did you know that part of what God does when He's about to change you is He gives you a NEW NAME?
Very often women who are transformed begin calling themselves something new without giving it a second thought Proverbs 16:9, “The mind of man plans his way but the Lord directs his steps.” "People do their best making plans for their lives, but the Eternal guides each step."
One of our favorite examples is the woman who had been a dancer at a gentleman's club, she had planned to get an abortion (for a late term pregnancy), but then met a minister from RMI. Instead, she got saved and immediately after someone called her "Frankie" when she corrected them by saying, "I go by Frances." It was her given name, which the Lord led her back to use because she was no longer in rebellion.
We know that our HH is called by many names, “For your Husband is your Maker, Whose name is the Lord of hosts; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth." Isaiah 61:8 Six names in this one verse.
We also know He has called you, “'For the Lord has called you, like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even like a wife of one’s youth when she is rejected,' Says your God"–Isaiah 54:4-6Mark 16:15 NLT
“And then He told them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.’”
GWT Then Jesus said to them, "So wherever you go in the world, tell everyone the Good News."
What GOD Said about Your BNN
“You’ll get a brand-new name straight from the mouth of God. You’ll be a stunning crown in the palm of God’s hand, a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God. No more will anyone call you Rejected, and your country will no more be called Ruined.
You’ll be called Hephzibah (My Delight), and your land Beulah (Married), Because God delights in you and your land will be like a wedding celebration. For as a young man marries his virgin bride, so your Builder marries you, And as a bridegroom is happy in his bride, so your Husband is happy with you.” Isaiah 62
Likewise Abram meaning father was changed to Abraham when it was revealed he would be father of the Hebrew nation. Genesis 17:5. God declared his new name: "Abraham" – "a father of many nations."
This means that if your given name is Marah, Mara, Maura, Moira, which is found in the book of Exodus and means "bitter”—the new name He gives you might be Dulcie that means sweet or Deborah that means sweet and diligent.
If your given name has an encouraging meaning, the new name He gives you could simply be another name that has the same meaning—we will simply trust Him to LEAD us, not leaning but acknowledging He is speaking to us about what is to come for you—and what we share that with you in REPLY to your submitted BNN form.
Psalm 23: 1-3— “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; HE LEADS ME beside quiet waters. He restores my soul.”
Proverbs 3:5–6— “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
Isaiah 30:21— "Your ears will hear a word behind you, 'This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left.'"
Isaiah 45:11— "Thus says the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: 'Ask Me about the things to come ...'"

How do I discover my Last or Biblical Surname Name?
When you submit your BNN "Brand New Name" form, we will also ask God for your Surname—based on what you fill out in your form—so that you are to set up a BNN Gmail account.
To discover your Biblical Last Name or Surname, we ask in the BNN form to list 2-3 persons in the bible you most identify with. For example, if you are like the Apostle Peter, by jumping out of the boat when you hear Him calling your name, we might use the last or surname Petersen.
If you identify with Stephen, He might lead us to choose Stevenson.
If you identify with John, He might lead us to might choose Johns or Johnson.
If you identify with Mathew, He might lead us to might choose Mathews.
If you identify with Luke, He might lead us to might choose simply Luke.
So, stop right now and begin to speak to Him about the people who you most admire and to think of 2-3 names for us to help you select your Biblical Surname.
