Names of God: Jehovah Nissi

Jehovah Nissi, The Lord is our Banner. We first see this name for God in Exodus 17 after Aaron and Hur held up the hand of Moses that was holding the staff of God causing them to prevail in battle against the Amalek. This staff of God was crucial. Amalek prevailed when Moses hand slipped, Israel prevailed when Moses hand was lifted. The Lord was their banner, they prevailed. “14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this [for] a memorial in a book, and rehearse [it] in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. 15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:” Exodus 17:14-15

Jesus is now our Nissi, our banner. Ephesians 6:10-18 tells us in part, “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].” We need our Jehovah Nissi to fight those powers. Seek Him daily. Equip yourselves for these battles and call in Jehovah Nissi to lead you to victory. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” ~ Ephesians 6:10-18
