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.


"The Lord our provider"


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


"Our perfect peace"


"The Lord is our righteousness


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


"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.


"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.


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

*The book All the Divine Names And Titles In The Bible by Herbert Lockyer used as source for certain material.
