JEHOVAH NISSI,THE LORD IS MY BANNER!

jehovah-nissi-1Shalom and blessed greetings I bring to all of you my beloved ones far and near and across the globe. May the blessing of God Almighty be upon you and your kin and God prosper you in good health and bless all things that concerns you. Today there are many of us out there who are struggling with the battles in our lives and there are in fact more than one battle to battle with and we often get tired waiting for the outcome of  the victory we are looking for. Do take time to read the below article and be sure to read between the lines my beloved ones. Stay blessed and God Bless. 

Shalom my beloved ones in Christ Jesus! Meaning of JEHOVAH NISSI. In the Old Testament it was there that God revealed himself as Jehovah Nissi, THE LORD IS MY BANNER. It happened at the time when Israel was wandering in the wilderness for forty years after miraculously crossing the Red Sea. The Amalek was the enemy that came against Israel in Rephidim. In Exodus 17:8-16 Moses called on his young apprentice, Joshua, to lead the Israelite’s into battle while Moses stationed himself on top of a hill to PRAY. He had with him his brother Aaron and his assistant, Hur. As Moses lifted his hands and prayed, the Israelite’s prevailed in the battle but when he let his hands down, Amalek prevailed. So Aaron and Hur set Moses on a rock and held his hands up for him until the battle was totally won.The POWER of PRAYER!

At the end of the day there was victory and God told Moses to write down what had happened and read it in Joshua’s hearing. God was thinking ahead to the time when Moses would be gone and Joshua would be called upon to take over leadership of God’s chosen people. Joshua would be the one to cross the Jordan River into Canaan (the Promised Land) and defeat Jericho. Joshua would have plenty of battles ahead of him and God wanted him to remember back to this one and the victory that God had given them.

Instead of raising a flag, Moses built an altar because in those times, an “altar” was often used as a place of remembering or marking an important event. This is where Moses called upon the name of God JEHOVAH NISSI, because he understood the revelation that God himself is Our BANNER and Our VICTORY.GOD is the one who wins our BATTLES. Even Today, GOD is still the LORD of all our BATTLES, spiritually and physically.. When Moses wrote that story down for Joshua, he was also writing it down for our benefit so that we will remember it as we go into battle.

There is an interesting thing that God says when he tells Moses to write down the story. God says that he “…will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.” That means that this enemy would not rise again – he was defeated UTTERLY. In verse 16, however, Moses says; “…the Lord has sworn: the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” How is it that God is saying the enemy was completely defeated and yet that there would be future wars with Amalek in future generations? Interesting right?

Amalek in this story represents our enemy, Satan, who is active against God’s people in all generations. Even though the literal “Amalek” at that time was completely defeated by Israel’s army, other Amaleks would rise up against Israel and on down to you and me in our own generation. When you gather under JEHOVAH NISSI as your BANNER, trust GOD that the outcome of your battle will be the same as it was for Moses and Joshua at Rephidim. Today in this present world that we are living in, God is saying there will always be war and do not be surprised by it.GOD is also saying and reminding us that HE is always the WINNER. GOD WILL BE FIGHTING FOR US WHEN WE SURRENDER IT ALL UNTO HIM.THE BATTLE BELONGS TO GOD AND THE VICTORY IS OURS! Amen and Amen to that!

Today what is your battle right now that you are struggling with? Is it injustice, drugs, bitterness, unforgiveness, loneliness, cancer, depression, hopelessness, bankruptcy, failure in marriage, unemployment and the list can go on and on my beloved ones. Only you know what you are battling with right now my beloved ones and it is so hard and difficult to see the end victory. Today, God is telling you to surrender your all unto Him in PRAYER and God will fight those battles for you. You and I will raise up the flag of Victory when we surrender all our battles to JEHOVAH NISSI, THE LORD IS OUR BANNER! The CHOICE is still in your hands my beloved ones.

 

God Bless.
