The King is coming again. His Banner over us is of love and for protection and for identity. He is holy, and deserves our reverence. He can be trusted. He will not abandon us.
Carole Sparks from Not about me and Julie Dibbles from Julie Dibble Writes have asked bloggers to contribute posts detailing/ regarding/ describing their journey towards becoming Christ like. This, like always, is a part of my story, not the whole picture. I'm not perfect and I'm constantly and consistently being worked on by the Holy Spirit. We'd love... Continue Reading →
I hope you can share your mountain-top experience with me. What God showed you, when He came through for you, how it changed you and who you are now because of those experiences. That way we can join together as the body of Christ and give Him the glory He deserves.
So what I want to ask you is, what or who is your Isaac? Is it your spouse? Your child/ren? Your job? Your reputation? Your home maybe? Your ministry in the church? What was it that you fought hard for? that you worked hard for? that you prayed fervently for? If you did and received it from the Lord, and you rejoiced and laughed and were filled with joy, then God tested you. He asked you to sacrifice it, to give it away, to walk from it. Would you be able to do it? Give your life for Him. Be parted from your children in order to take His word to others. Not marry because your spouse is not part of His will. Be slandered because you did what He told you to, but the world didn't like it. Walk away from a legacy that you built, because He wanted you to.
Jehovah is actually YHWH and means Lord and Master. It is the promised and proper name of God. Shalom means peace, absence of strife, complete, or sound. Used together Jehovah Shalom means The Lord Is Peace. When it seems like the whole world is against you or that you you are completely unable to deal with whatever problem is in front of you, turn to the God of peace to find comfort and strength.
Finally, the shepherd cares for the sheep because he loves them and wants to maintain his own good reputation as a faithful shepherd. As we’ve seen in Psalm 23, the analogy of the Lord as the Good Shepherd was also applied by Jesus in John chapter 10. In declaring that He is the shepherd of the sheep, Jesus is confirming that He is God. The Eternal God is our Shepherd. And we would not want it any other way.
Jehovah is actually YHWH ( see Yahweh in Adonai, Master and Yahweh, LORD..) and means Lord and Master. It is the promised and proper name of God. Tsidkenu means justice, rightness, righteousness, deliverance, victory, and prosperity. Used together Jehovah Tsidkenu means The Lord Who Is Our Righteousness. God himself stands for us and provides us with His righteousness and justice when we don’t have any in ourselves. He is the one who provides victory and our prosperity
While I'm working on writing a summary of Luke, I'm going to re post a few of my older ones, on some of the names of God. I will endeavor to post new ones as soon as possible. In the Old Testament times, people din't call God by His name. Names were powerful, names were an identity ,... Continue Reading →
