The Covenant Names of God

There are eight covenant names by which God revealed Himself and His purpose to Israel. These names comprehend the benefits God made available to Israel through His covenant. Whoever knew those names and called upon the God they represented had God’s promise that he would behave toward them in the fashion demanded by each of His titles.

Evangelist Rachel Thomas Evangelist Rachel Thomas Here are the names listed in the order of their historical relation to Israel: Yahweh-Jireh-The Lord our Provider- Genesis 22:8, 14; Yahweh-Rapha-The Lord our Healer- Exodus 15:26;Yahweh –Nissi-The Lord our Banner -Exodus 17:15; Yahweh- Qadesh The Lord our Sanctifier-Leviticus 20:8, Ezekiel 20:12;Yahweh Shalom -The Lord our Peace Judges 6:24; Yahweh Raah- The Lord our Shepherd Psalms 23:1; Yahweh- Tsidkenu -The Lord our Righteousness -Jeremiah 23:6;Yahweh – Shammah- The Lord Ever Present - Ezekiel 48:35 Yahweh is peculiarly the person name by which the Lord God revealed Himself to Israel. It stands in contrast with other more or less impersonal titles by which God was also known – Elohim, Adonai, and El Elyon. Yahweh was especially used to express the personal covenant the Lord God had entered into with Israel. Yahweh means “Eternal.” Its full significance is displayed in the words, he called there on the Name of the Lord (Yahweh), the Everlasting God” – Genesis 21:33 and again “God said to Moses, “I AM who I AM: ( or I will be what I will be”) – Exodus 3:13, 14 and again, “I AM the Alpha and the Omega”, says the Lord God (the first and the last), Who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty (Revelation 1:8)

The Lord God has entered into an everlasting covenant to provide our needs, go before us into battle, sanctify and make us Holy; give us peace, shepherds us, impart to us His righteousness, remain by our side for all Eternity and to be our Great Physician. In the New Testament, “Jesus” is an anglicized form of the Greek transliteration of the ordinary Hebrew name: Joshua” or “Jehoshua” meaning “Yahweh is Savior.” The compound names of God are applicable to Christ as illustrated by the promises given us. Yahweh-Jireh- Philippians 4:19; Yahweh – Rapha 1Peter 2:24;Yahweh –Nissi- John 10:4;Yahweh –Qadesh- 1 Corinthians 1:30;Yahweh – Shalom-Ephesians 2:14 Yahweh –Raah-John 10:11;Yahweh-Tsidkenu Philippians 3:9;Yahweh- Shammah-Matthew 28:20
