Eight Redemptive Names of God

There are many names for God in the Bible, and eight of them are Redemptive Names.

Simply put with only a minor explanation as to the meaning, I place here the eight names.

JEHOVAH-JIREH

"The Lord our provider"

JEHOVAH-NISSI

"Our banner, a banner of love and protection".

JEHOVAH-SHALOM

"Our perfect peace"

JEHOVAH-TSID-KENU

"The Lord is our righteousness

JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH

"The One Who is with us everywhere for He is Omnipresent"

JEHOVAH-SABAOTH

"The Lord of Hosts, our Protector."

C.H. Spurgeon said this about the phrase "The Lord of Hosts: The Lord rules the angels, the stars, the elements, and all the hosts of Heaven; and the Heaven of heavens is under His sway... [the Lord] is on our side -- our august Ally; woe unto those who fight against Him, for they shall flee like smoke before the wind when He gives the word to scatter them."

See text at Psalm 46:7.

JEHOVAH-RAAH

"Our Shepherd Who tenderly leads us, loves us and will keep us safe."

The term shepherd appears approximately 80 times in the Scriptures, denoting meanings of: feeder, keeper, companion, friend, pastor and herdsman.

JEHOVAH RAPHA รข€“

"I am the Lord Your Physician or I am the Lord Your Healer.”
