Today in our continuing series, on the names of God, we are going to examine El Elyon, Yahweh, and Jehovah Raah. So very interesting to know that our Lord, has so many names that we can call him by. Whatever circumstance we may find ourselves in there is a name associated with that paritcular problem For instance, When we need financial assistance, we know that we can call on Jehovah Jireh, Our provider to always provide for us whether to pay our bills or feed our families. Jehovah Jireh always provides for our every need.
El Elyon “The Most High God”, pronounced (el el-yone’) . It is found in the old testament 28 times, and first used in Genesis 14:18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he [was] the priest of the (most high God). So anytime we see our Lord referred to as The Most High God, in the Bible, we know that this is our El Elyon. El Elyon surely expresses the supreme majesty, and exalted status of our King Jesus. There is no other god that all creatures great and small will someday bow down to other than El Elyon “The Most High God”.
Yahweh Lord, Jehovah, pronounced (yah-weh). Perhaps the most common name used in the Bible for God, it is found 6,519, times in the Old Testament. Yahweh is first used in Genesis 2:4 These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens. Is Yahweh your Lord, over your life? Or are you Lord over your life? Let Yahweh be the Lord over your life. Let’s not try to be our own Lord. Let’s give the credit to the Lord Yahweh.
Jehovah Raah “The Lord My Shephard”, pronounced (yeh-ho-vaw’ raw-aw’). Jehovah Raah is seen in the Old Testament in the 23 Psalm. Psalm 23:1 The Lord is my shephard I shall not want. Jesus, is our shephard. Did you know that Jesus compares us to sheep. sheep are one of the dumbest animals if not thee dumbest alive. Sheep need a shephard, or they would walk right off a cliff. Sound familiar, Jesus wants to be our shephard, so we don’t walk off any cliffs. If we let him be our shephard, and lead us in the right direction and set us on the right path than our lives would be much less complicated. Jesus is our Shephard, and we are his sheep. Will you let him be your shephard?
