Trusting in the LORD JEHOVAH

  1. Jehovah-jireh the LORD who Sees
    1. Used in the story of the offering of Isaac (Genesis 22:13-14)
    2. Refers to the fact that God will see the need and will provide the necessary solution as He provided the ram for Abrahams offering.
    3. Prophetically points to the sacrifice of the Messiah.
      1. God will ultimately provide Himself as a Lamb (Genesis 22:8; John 1:29)
      2. The sacrifice will be seen in the mount of the LORD (Genesis 22:14).
        1. Isaac was offered in one of the mountains of Moriah (Genesis 22:2).
        2. Moriah was to become the Temple Mount in Jerusalem (2 Chronicles 3:1).
        3. Just north of the city of Jerusalem, probably at the place of a northern extension of the Temple Mount, was the place of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
  2.  The LORD that Healeth Thee
    1. Used shortly after the Israelites crossed the Red Sea and immediately after the bitter waters called Marah were turned sweet by casting a tree into the waters (Exodus 15:22-26).
    2. Joined with a promise that obedience on the part of the Israelites would deliver them from the diseases of the Egyptians.
  3. Jehovah-nissi the LORD our Banner
    1. Given as the name of an altar built by Moses (Exodus 17:15).
    2. Used in context of a battle and victory over the Amalekites (Exodus 17:8-16). Joshua led the army of Israel and Moses prayed while Aaron and Hur held up his hands.
    3. The banner refers to a battle standard (Song of Solomon 6:4; see also Psalm 20:5; 60:4). Each unit in an army would follow behind its proper banner. Moses is teaching the Israelites that the banner they should follow is the LORD Himself. If they will look to Him, as Moses did in prayer during the battle, He will give them the victory.
  4. The LORD Who Sanctifies
    1. Used in a passage where the Lord warns Israel against the following of other gods (Leviticus 20:1-8).
    2. To sanctify is to set apart especially for the Lords use (as the vessels of the tabernacle were sanctified).
    3. The Israelites have been sanctified, or set apart, as Gods special people (Deuteronomy 7:6). They are not to follow after other gods.
    4. The LORD identifies Himself as the One who sanctifies them. He is the God who sets His people apart from all others.
  5. Jehovah-shalom the LORD our Peace
    1. The name given to an altar built by Gideon (Judges 6:24).
    2. Used in context of the call of God to Gideon to deliver the Israelites out of the hands of the Midianites (Judges 6:1-24).
    3. Used immediately after Gideon realized that he had seen an angel of the Lord face to face and needed have his fear calmed by the promise of peace from the Lord (Judges 6:22-23).
    4. God Himself is to be our peace (Numbers 6:26; Psalm 29:11; Haggai 2:9; 2 Thessalonians 3:16).
  6. The LORD our Righteousness
    1. A millennial title given to Israel (Jeremiah 23:6) and to Jerusalem (Jeremiah 33:16).
    2. Points to the fact that their righteousness was not earned by good works but that God Himself is their righteousness. Evidently, Israel as a nation will have the same imputed righteousness as that given to Abraham (Genesis 15:6) and to New Testament believers (Romans 3:21-22).
  7. The LORD is There
    1. Given in the very last verse of the book of Ezekiel (Ezekiel 48:35).
    2. Given as a name for the millennial city of Jerusalem.
    3. Points to the presence of the Lord in the city. By application, it refers to the presence of God with His people.
