names of God

The Lord our Banner 2


“And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah nissi: For he said, because the LORD has sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” Exodus 17:15-16

In America, when we see the flag, we remember the brave soldiers that endured a night of bombing from enemy ships to secure freedom for a nation. Moses understood that God, as The LORD our Banner, makes war with Amalak, and as such, He is our motivation to live for His purposes, and by faith.

Amalak were the descendents of Esau, who according to Hebrews 12 sold his birthright for a bowl of soup. His priorities were earthly, worldly, temporal, and when he did not receive the blessing, he could only cry tears of selfish remorse and not godly repentance. It is on this type of fleshly living that God makes war from generation to generation.

The LORD’s method of warfare is to lift a Banner that inspires but also accomplishes the very end He has designed. Jesus spoke of this banner when He said, “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. This he said, signifying what death he should die.” John 12:31-33

Jesus’ crucifixion accomplished victory over Satan and this world system that is in bondage to sin; it is for the Christian to walk in Christ’ victory.

Faith in Jesus Christ our Banner is the victory that overcomes the world!

Oh Christian, to what sins in your life might Christ’ victory be applied?

About Joe Durso

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.
