Jehovah-Yireh The-Lord-Will-Provide 

In obedience to the call of God, Abraham took his only son Isaac and went to the land of Moriah.  Abraham took his son to the place where God wanted his son to be sacrificed for a burnt offering. Then he laid the wood of the burnt offering on Isaac and took the fire in his hand and a knife, and the two of them went together.  Seeing only the fire and the wood, Isaac looked for the lamb for the burnt offering.  Abraham replied to his son, My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.  When Abraham offered his son at the altar, the Angel of the Lord prevented him from sacrificing Isaac, and said, Now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me (Gen.22:1-14). 

Then Abraham saw a ram caught in a thicket by its horns.  He offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. And Abraham called the name of the place The-Lord-Will-Provide. This means, In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.  The Lord revealed to Abraham as Jehovah-Yireh. 

When you want to sacrifice for God the best of your worldly possessions, God Himself would provide a ram for you. Our God wants to test your love for Him.  As you build the altar and go to sacrifice what He wants you to, He also would provide a ram for you. 

Are you about to sacrifice for the One Who had already sacrificed His only Son for you on the Cross?  Are you sacrificially giving to the body of Christ, the Church?  The Lord will Himself meet all your personal needs.  

Do you remain unemployed or unmarried for a long time, in spite of the fact you sacrificially make intercessory prayers for others? The Lord will Himself provide you the best job or the best spouse, as the case may be. Are you still bearing a financial burden, despite your sacrificial prayers of intercession at the altar of God? The Lord will Himself provide you the necessary finances.  Today, He reveals Himself to you as Jehovah-Yireh.  

Dear Minister, you have sought funds or helpers for running your ministry but in vain, despite your many sacrifices for His body. After spending many years in His service, you have now reached the Mount of the Lord.  In the Mount of the Lord, it is the Lord Who provides all your needs. 

Of late, in my ministry to the body of Christ, when I faced a particular need, I realized my inability to meet that need.  I shared the burden on my heart with my dear friends.  While writing to them, I was led by the Holy Spirit to tell them, The Lord will Himself provide me 

You should now rest in the Lord after getting such a wonderful revelation of His Name Jehovah-Yireh or The-Lord-Will-Provide. My God shall provide all your needs through Christ Jesus.

  

Jehovah-Nissi The-Lord-is-My-Banner 

When Amalek fought with the people of Israel in Rephidim, Moses said to Joshua, Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek.  Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.  Accordingly, Joshua went and fought with Amalek.  Moses, Aaron and Hur went up to the top of the hill.  And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.  But Moses hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put up under him, and he sat on it.  And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.  Ultimately, Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.  Then the Lord said to Moses, Write this for a memorial in the book and recount it in the hearing of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.  And Moses built an altar and called its name, The-Lord-Is-My-Banner(Exo.17:8-15). 

Amalek is a type of satanic forces who fight with the people of God and keep them under their bondage.  Joshua and his team are typical of those servants of God who are engaged in the direct warfare with these satanic forces by way of evangelism, prophecy, edification and building of the body of Christ. They defeat the satanic forces with the two-edged Sword.  

Moses, Aaron and Hur are like those servants of God who are the prayer-warriors, reaching the top of the hill so as to meet God.  These servants of God uphold in their intercessory prayers those servants of God who are directly engaged in the warfare.  These prayer warriors have the rod of God i.e. the God-given authority, in their hand. Let us not call them as believers. They are also the servants of God.  

If there are in a  prayer group, one of them would lead them in the prayer session like Moses, and the rest of them would be supporting their prayer leader like Aaron and Hur. If these prayer warriors relent in their prayer life or in their prayer ministry, the devil will have temporary success over the people of God.  Moses was the great intercessor before God, interceding for the people of God.  Similarly, we have, in our midst, precious intercessors (whom we may not be knowing personally).  These prayer warriors prevail with God like Jacob in prayers.  They travail in prayers until the children are born in the kingdom of God and until the church is revived.  These prayer-warriors have the very authority of God in binding the devils work on this earth.  They are like Moses indeed. These days, we recognize and acknowledge the ministries of those servants of God who perform the ministry of signs and wonders in Jesus Name in a visible manner.  Hardly we recognize and acknowledge these secret warriors of Christ.  There are thousands of housewives, aged people, etc. who perform this wonderful secret ministry.  They are likened to the heart in the body of Christ. 

The ministry of Moses, even under the Old Testament, was a body ministry, whereas many ministers of today claim themselves to be leaders like Moses.  If we engage ourselves in a body ministry and fight with the devil, then the Lord will bring us victory over the devilish forces likened to the Amalekites. And we can proclaim His Name as Jehovah-Nissi. 

Our Lord Jesus has already won the devil on the Cross of Calvary and revealed the Father to us as Jehovah-Nissi.  Are you facing defeat after defeat in your career/profession/education or in your ministry?  The Lord is revealing today as Jehovah-Nissi.  Let us worship Him, shouting aloud, Jehovah-Nissi.  Every child of God should proclaim, The-Lord-Is-My-Banner
