This wasn’t only a testimony of Shem, BUT a testimony of Noah as his father. If Noah had not taught the ways of the Lord (Yahweh) to Shem there would not had developed the relationship between Yahweh and Shem. This is an awesome testimony of Noah as well as Shem. 
A believer needs to come into the knowledge of the Blood Covenant with Yahweh (Lord) that Yeshua (Jesus) made between the One True God (Yahweh), and man. This covenant was not initiated by man but was initiated by the One True God (Yahweh). This blood covenant supersedes the Levitical Covenant and includes all the Abrahamic Covenants, the Ten Commandments, and healing covenants.
The Levitical Covenant was a blood covenant with a nation of people. The New Covenant (New Testament) is a blood covenant between an individual and the One True God (Yahweh). This covenant includes the family and can also include nations of people, a nation, a state, a city, a town, a village, a tribe or a clan. Since the New Covenant is a Blood Covenant it has not only blessings attached to it but curses attached to it also. The curses are for those who break covenant with the One True God (Yahweh), Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ).
When Yahweh (Lord) entered into a blood covenant with Abraham (Genesis chapter 17), God changed Abram’s Name to Abraham which included part of God’s Name. The name change is essential in a true blood covenant. The changing of the name of the bride in the marriage covenant is an example of a name change when entering into a blood covenant. (Marriage is a blood covenant. This is why the woman being a virgin is very important.)
Yahweh (Lord) took on the name of Abraham by becoming known as the “God of Abraham”. Abraham was not the first in the Bereshith (Genesis) who the One True God (Yahweh) had a covenant and God took on the name of that person. Noah’s son, Shem was the first in the Bereshith (Genesis) that God took his name to be known as the “God of Shem”. This is a sign of a true covenant with the One True God (Yahweh). For a believer to have the One True God (Yahweh) to take on their name as the “God of” there must be a true personal intimate covenant relationship between the believer and the One True God (Yahweh).
Genesis chapter 17 God came to speak with Abram. God changed Abram’s name to Abraham. Then verses 7-9 God said he would be the God (Elohim) of Abraham and also the God (Elohim) of Abraham’s seed. God didn’t just say he was going to be a God to Abraham’s seed but that he would be the Elohim (God), the supreme God, all they would ever need God. A lot of Christians don’t have the One True God, Elohim, as their Only God. They have many gods besides Elohim in their lives. Of the most predominate are money; their children, their spouse and some even have their church or their ministry.
This type of honor should not be taken lightly. It is a very serious matter between God and the person God is being associated with. If the person is not bringing true glory and honor to God then it is blaspheming God and may even be blaspheming the Holy Spirit. If this person’s life is not a praise and glory to God and/or if the person is living up to a religious man’s idea of a God-life it would be blaspheming God. The person saying such a thing could possibly be blaspheming the Holy Spirit.
There are only a few people who have received this honor in the Scriptures.  Besides Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Israel and Hebrews God is the “God of” about 9 or 10 other people. This includes ‘the God of our Lord Jesus’, Ephesians 1:17. 
The only prophet associated with Yahweh as “God of” is Elijah. David is referred to as “my lord the king” by Benaiah son of Jehoiada, 1 Kings 1:36.  The only other king that was associated with Yahweh as the “God of” was Hezekiah and it was by an officer of the king of Assyria. (Some translations have a little ‘g’ instead of a Capital. The Hebrew word here is Elohim and could be either way by context.)
When king Nebuchadnezzar had seen the mighty works of Yahweh he referred to Yahweh as the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. King Darius
