Genesis Chapter 1: God – The “Who” of Creation – The Revelation of God through His Names Part 2

His Covenant Names                                            

Exodus 3:13-16


      “YHWH – Yahweh – Jehovah – Lord God – “”I AM”””                                                       

“Adon – Adonai “Lordship”   

Jehovah is His eternal name. This means that He is “The self-existent One. The Ever Present One” He always was, He is, and He will always be!.

The Jewish people do not speak the name of God because it is too sacred to be uttered by mans’ lips. They use “Lord” or “Addonai”

We have gone to the other extreme in our handling of His precious name. We have either dwindled His name down to a curse word or as our buddy whom we know so much that we call him what we want because He wants us to like Him so much that we think He doesn’t care how we handle His name.

We should use His name in reverence like the Jewish people. We should respect God and His name

Yahweh – Rapha The Lord Who healeth thee  Exodus 15:22

In Exodus 12 the Israelites had victory over death

In chapter 14 they had victory over the Egyptians (the world)

but in three days they went from singing to murmuring

In chapter 16 they were hungry

In chapter 17 they were thirsty

and in Numbers they were thirsty again

Each time they murmured it was an open door for God to display His power

When we are weak He is strong – 2 Corinthians 12:10

The first test that came to the Israelites was Mara. Sometimes when we walk with God, He leads us to a test or trial. But we don’t need to get bitter (Ruth 1:20)

Exodus 15:22-27 – Moses threw a rod into the bitter water and the water became sweet.

Galatians 6:14

He was placed on a tree for our sins. He changes the bitterness inside us and makes it sweet!

Jesus Christ is the Jehovah- Rapha of the Old Testament and He shows us this by a pool of water. John 5

This man confessed his helplessness and Jesus healed him. This man was forgotten. He didn’t ask Jesus to forgive him, he just testified to his helplessness. He had given up hope. He had come to the end of himself (Proverbs 14:12, Romans 4:5)

Jesus deliberately healed on the Sabbath because it was a covenant between God and the Jewish people but they broken this covenant (John 1:11) so there was no need to honor the covenant with them


Yahweh- Jireh   Genesis 22:1-14, Hebrews 11:17-19

God leads Abraham through something that He would go through Himself 2000 years later. The Jewish people spiritualize this passage

God sent His Son to be a Redeemer for us and He is satisfied with the price Jesus paid for us
