Christ—Jehovah, 7of9


~ The Title “Jehovah-Nissi” ~

 

Jesus said, “I and My Father are one” (John 10:30).

 

There are quite a number of Jehovah titles.  This series will focus on seven Jehovah titles which embrace the fullness of Jesus Christ for His people.  These titles include the completeness of Jehovah’s name as it is manifested in the life of Jesus Christ for His people.  These titles show how the Messiah completely meets His people’s need from their guilt to their future glory. 

 

Jehovah-Nissi means “the Lord our banner,” or “the Lord my banner.”  In this context a banner can be thought of as an insignia, ensign, signal pole, a standard, or commemorative plaque. 

 

“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; for he said, ‘Because the Lord has sworn: the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation’” (Exodus 17:14-16). 

 

Circumstances  ~  It was following a military victory over the Amalekites at Rephidim that Moses built a memorial to honor the event.  In our day our warfare is not with flesh and blood but with the world, the flesh, and the devil (1 John 2:16-17).  It is the Cross of Calvary which is our banner today—it signifies God’s power over sin and death, and the ability to redeem the lost sinner. 

 

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:14-16). 

 

the key question: “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15). This is the most important question you will ever answer. If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
