There are 8 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.

Here are the names listed in the order of their historical to Israel: Yahweh-Jireh “The Lord, our Provider,”Gen.22;8,14 Yahweh-Rapha “The Lord, or Healer,” Exo15:26 Yahweh-Nissi “The Lord our Banner,” Exo.17:15 Yahweh-Qadesh “The Lord, our Sanctifier,” Lev.20:8, Ezk.20:12 Yahweh-Shalom “The Lord, our Peace,” Judg.6:24 Yahweh-Raah “The lord, our Shepherd,” Ps.23:1 Yahweh-Tsidkenu “The Lord, our Righteousness Jer.23:6 Yahweh-Shammah “The Lord ever Present,” Ez.48:35

Yahweh is peculiarly the person by which Lord God revealed Himself to Israel.

It stands in contrast with other more or less impersonal titles by god was also known-Elohim, Adonai and El Elyon. Yahweh was especially used to express the personal covenant the Lord God had entered into in Israel. Yahweh means “Eternal.” It’s full significance is displayed in the words, “He called there on the name of the Lord, the EverlastingGod”(Gen.21:33), 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 (Rev.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, shepherd us, impart to us before into battle, sanctify and make us Holy, give us peace, shepherd us impart to us His righteousness, remain by our side for all eternity and 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 promise given us.
