God's Will To Heal - page 61

Chapter 8: The Eternal Names of God (Jehovah)
The eighth reason goes right along with the seventh reason. It is actually kind of a conclusion,
but it is very significant.
We are sure it is God’s will for all of us to be healed today because
of the eternal names of God.
We just read one of the names of God: I am Jehovah-Rapha. I Am the Self-Existent One Who
mends you and heals you, Who restores you to normal.
Let me give you some of the other redemptive names. This is exciting! Another name is Jehovah
Jireh. In Genesis 22:14, it says, “And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh: as it
is said to this day, In the mount of the L
it shall be seen.” The phrase “it shall be seen”
indicates that the Lord sees ahead and provides. Provision, before seeing.
He used to be the “Great Self-Existent One Who sees ahead and provides supply.” He used to be
the “Lord Who Provides.” Is He still? Do you like scriptures like Philippians 4:19, “But my God
shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Is He still “Jehovah
Jireh, the Great I Am”? Certainly!
Another name is “Jehovah-Nissi.” “Jehovah, the Self-Existent One Who is our banner,” has to do
with a banner of victory, a banner of triumph. It kind of reminds me of the famous picture of the
United States Marines putting the flag up on the ground they took. You’ve got the victory, the
enemy is conquered, you have won, and you put up the banner. You put up the flag of victory.
Exodus 17:15 says, “And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi.” He used
to be the “God of Victory.” He used to be the “God of Triumph.” Is He still? Has He changed?
Recall scriptures like 1 Corinthians 15:57, “But thanks be to God which giveth us the victory
through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Second Corinthians 2:14, “Now thanks be unto God, which
always causeth us to triumph in Christ.” If God be for you, who can be against you? He’s made
us more than conquerors. We are overcomers. Is He still “Jehovah-Nissi”? Is He still the “Lord
our Victory”? Yes!
Another name is “Jehovah-Kadesh.” It means the “Lord Who sanctifies, Who makes you clean.”
Exodus 31:13 says, “That ye may know that I am the L
that doth sanctify you.” You’ll see it
numerous places in the Old Testament.
He used to be the “Lord Who makes you holy,” “the Lord Who cleanses you, and sanctifies you,
makes you clean.” Is He still? Yes!
In the New Testament, Hebrews 10:10 says, “By the which will we are sanctified through the
offering of the body of Jesus once for all.” First Corinthians 1:30 says, “…we are in Christ Jesus,
who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” Is
Christ our Sanctifier? Does He make us clean? Is He still the Lord our Cleanser Who makes us
holy? Yes!
