Blessed be the Name of the Lord (Part 2) – Psalm 54:1

Blessed be the Name of the Lord (Part 2) – Psalm 54:1

 

“Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength” (Psalm 54:1 KJV).

 

Jehovah-Jireh means the LORD will provide. “And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen” (Genesis 22:14 KJV). The LORD will provide (Jehovah-jireh) himself a lamb, the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.  “And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together” (Genesis 22:8 KJV). Jesus Christ is our Jehovah-Jireh: Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God. “The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29 KJV).

 

Jehovah-Nissi means the LORD our Banner. “And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi” (Exodus:  17:15 KJV). The LORD is our Victory.  Christ crucified, burial, and resurrection is our Banner of Victory! “But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (I Corinthians 15:57 KJV).

 

Jehovah-Qadash means the LORD that doth sanctify. “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth” (John 17:17 KJV). Jesus Christ is our Sanctifier: He is our Jehovah Qadash. “Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (Hebrews 10:9-10 KJV).

 

Jehovah-Ra-ah means the LORD is Shepherd. “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1 KJV). Jesus Christ is our Shepherd. “I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep” (John 10:11 KJV).

 

Jehovah-Rapha means the Lord that healeth. “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed” (I Peter 2:24 KJV). We have all been bitten by the snake and the only anti-venom is the blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the one that healeth, and it is by His stripes that we are healed. Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, buried for your sins and resurrected, which shows us God the Father accepted Jesus Christ death payment for sin. The work is done for salvation. Trust in Jesus Christ alone to save you. Jesus Christ is our Jehovah-Rapha.

 

Jehovah-Sabaoth means the LORD is Host. “And this man went up out of his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice unto the Lord of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the Lord, were there” (I Samuel 1:3 KJV). Jesus Christ is our LORD of Host. “The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah” (Psalm 46:7,11 KJV). Jesus Christ is our LORD of Host, and He is with us. “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us” (Matthew 1:23 KJV).

 

Jesus means Joshua (Yeshua) is Salvation: Savior. Jesus Christ saves His people from their sins. “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21 KJV). Salvation is only in Jesus Christ. “Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory” (II Timothy 2:10 KJV). Jesus Christ didn’t come to condemn us; Jesus Christ come to save us. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:16-18 KJV). Jesus Christ is our Salvation: Jesus Christ is our Savior!

 

What is stopping you right now from accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior?  Trust in His Holy Name: believe Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, burial and resurrection.  Trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior today and sing praises unto His Holy Name.

THE PLAN OF SALVATION - THE GOSPEL

 

The Gospel is Jesus Christ died on the Cross for our sins (past, present, and future), He was buried, and He resurrected the third day to show us the payment for sin is paid in full.  

  • I Corinthians 15:1-4: Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

 

God loves you. Lord Savior Jesus Christ was revealed in the flesh for one reason, and that is to save us from our sins.  Jesus Christ does not come to condemn individuals.  Jesus Christ comes to save us because we are all Hell doomed sinners without the Blood of Jesus Christ. 

  • John 3:16-18:  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 

 

All individuals are sinners. The payment for sin is death. 

  • Romans 3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

  • Romans 6:23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Christ died for your sin and resurrected for you.

  • II Corinthians 5:21: For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  • I Corinthians 15:3-4: For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

 

If you believe in Christ alone, you receive eternal life.

  • John 6:47: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

  • I John 5:13: These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

 

If you could be saved by being water baptized, doing good works, being a good person or following the Ten Commandments, why did (the God from Eternity Past, the God from Eternity Future) the Ever Presence Jesus Christ reveal Himself in the flesh and die on the Cross and resurrect the third day?  

  • Galatians 2:21: I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

 

If you could earn salvation by doing those things, then Jesus Christ died in vain. However, Jesus Christ didn’t die in vain. Jesus Christ made a perfect sacrifice for sin. He is the Lamb of God, and only the Lamb of God can make a perfect sacrifice for sin. There is only one way to Heaven, and it is the belief in the Finished Redemptive Work of Jesus Christ.

  • Ephesians 2:8-9: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

  • Philippians 3:9: And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

  • Galatians 2:16: Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

  • Titus 3:5: Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

 

The resurrection is proof God the Father accepted Jesus Christ death payment for sin -death payment of past, present, and future sin.  

 

People DO NOT go to Hell because they are “bad.” People go to Hell because they believe NOT the Gospel of Jesus Christ. People trust NOT in Jesus Christ as their Savior. People believe NOT Jesus Christ died on the Cross for their sins, burial, and resurrection. People do NOT trust alone in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ. 

  • II Thessalonians 1:8-9: In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

 

Know that God is gracious to you, and He has already died for all your sins (past, present, and future), He was buried showing all the world He died for your sins, and He resurrected showing all the world that Jesus Christ fulfilled what the Father asked Him to do: IT IS FINISHED!  

 

I pray you to believe in Jesus Christ right now for salvation -believe Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sin, burial, and resurrection. Trust alone in Jesus Christ as your Savior. 

 

If you know someone who is not saved, forward this message to them and share the greatest gift that one could ever receive.

Once Saved, Always Saved -"And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one." (John 10:28-30 KJV)
