names of God

Yehovah/Jesus our Deliverer Part 1

thumbnailCAFHYPDJ “But the LORD said, “I have witnessed the affliction of my people in Egypt …Therefore I have come down to rescue them from the hands of the Egyptians…” Exodus 3:7-8

The name Yehovah is first revealed to Moses in the third chapter of Exodus; the context is the deliverance of Israel by God from their bondage to Egypt. This truth is clear by God’s repeated use of the phrase ‘I will,’ “…I will be with thee…” “I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land…” “I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt…” etc.

It is a natural transition into the New Testament to see the correlation between Israel’s physical bondage in Egypt and man’s bondage to sin. Yehovah/Jesus delivered the nation of Israel from their physical bondage to Egypt, as a picture of Christ the Messiah delivering man from his bondage to sin.

The first way Christ delivered men from the bondage of sin is judicially, as Christ was put to death to meet the demands of God’s justice, because of man’s disobedience toward God his creator. The Father purposed the salvation of sinners, the Son purchased their release, and the Holy Spirit performs the work of God in the Son and the work of the Son in man. Salvation is an act of God, by grace, on behalf of man who is too sinful to save himself.

“That as sin has reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 5:21

The second way Christ delivered men from the bondage of sin will be discussed in the next Blog.

The Christian is one made righteous in the sight of God by the blood of Christ; nothing further need be done to satisfy the just requirements of the law, as set by God – Hallelujah what a savior, deliverer, and friend!

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
