Message from the Pastor
THE HEBREW NAMES of GOD
What do we know about the NATURE of God our Father? God has REVEALED something to us about His own being and nature through His different Hebrew names.
The Hebrew people say of God and His name, “Himself is His Name, and His Name is Himself”.
The REDEMPTIVE names of God revealed as Jehovah (or Yahweh) are God’s own PERSONAL and DISTINCT names. God said of Himself “I AM WHO I AM” – Ex 3:14. What was God saying to Moses? When God spoke these words to His servant, He said Moses,...I am the ETERNAL, UNCHANGED and UNCHANGING One, I would be ALL that you ever needed Me to be. These compound names of God are always linked with the need of man, and thus it is our privilege to CALL upon His names, CONFESS His names and BELIEVE in the transformation power of the names of God!
1. Jehovah RAPHA - The LORD that HEALS
Ex 15:26 “...for I am the Lord who heals you”
2. Jehovah NISSI - The LORD is my BANNER
Ex 17:15 “And Moses built an altar and called its name, The Lord is my banner”
3. Jehovah JIREH - The LORD will PROVIDE
Gen 22:14 “And Abraham called the place, The Lord will provide”
4. Jehovah MEKADDESKUM - The LORD who SANCTIFIES
Gen 31:13 “...that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you”
5. Jehovah SHAPHAT - The LORD who is JUDGE
Judges 11:27 “Therefore I have not sinned against you, but you wronged me by
fighting against me. May the Lord, the judge, render judgment...”
So, we see that God is the One who HEALS, He is the BANNER that is spread out over me and my family, He is My provider, He sanctifies me and cleanses me, and He is my Judge that will judge fairly !
In the next issue of Faith Talk we will look at some more Hebrew names of God
