GOD, MY VICTOR—Jehovah-Nissi

After leaving Marah where God revealed Himself as the Healer of His people (Jehovah-Rophe), the people had a period of rest but they soon forgot what God had performed for them when they came into hunger and thirst.  God came to their rescue.  As their Provider, He had given them manna and quail from heaven (Ex. 15:6-15 and Ex. 16:8, 11-15).  When they needed drink, he brought them to a rock where they experienced another miracle of provision – water in abundance (Ex. 17:9).  Shortly after that, they were faced with the Amalekites!  After all they had been through with their Delivering God, they seemed to have learned and they responded in a calm and organized way under the leadership of their much admired Joshua.  This is the first war that Israel is to experience, and they are ill trained for such a venture against a highly experienced army. The two leaders have a plan.  Joshua takes his army and marches against the Amalekites, and Moses takes his place as an intercessor for the army.  As long as Moses holds up his arms, Israel prevails; when his arms drop, Amalek prevails.  Aaron and Hur came to Moses’ aid as they seat Moses on a stone and assist in holding up his hands.  God comes to the aid of Israel again and shows Himself as Jehovah-Nissi, my Banner.  He is the victorious conqueror!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Will you be writing on the other covenant names of God? I would to read how God has shown Himself to you in terms of His specific names.

      I will be covering the eight Jehovah names of God which relate to his relationship with man. The introduction is explained somewhat under “God’s Provision.” It is my belief that God created man; he created man with needs; he, God himself, wants to meet every need of man. The next role I will cover is Jehovah-M’Kaddish – My Holiness. Thanks so much for your contacts. I have punched your “follow” button so I will see you around.
