The God who sees ME

The God who sees ME

El Roi is my favorite name of God because it means the God who sees. He sees me. He wants to have a relationship with me and wants to know every detail of me life even though He is KING of the Universe. He is so good to me. He is my Lord and Savior. Nothing shall separate me from His love. He is All that I need and MORE!

The Lineage of Majesty


The Lineage of Majesty 

     Just because God can, He placed so many impossibilities in Jesus’ Lineage. Each time the circumstances would become impossible, He came through and saved David’s seed. It proves over and over again, God’s divine hand in orchestrating each person and timing. He was in control and it magnifies Him and His Sovereignty. There was so many tests that Jesus had to fulfill and combined were impossible. Biological impossibilities were that He had to be from the seed of a woman, the heir of the kingly title, and after the order of Melchizedek. Then the test of the seed were completely impossible as well. He must be the seed of a woman, born in Bethlehem, born of a virgin, must be of the fruit of the body of David, must be in the line of the Davidic kings, must be the line of the Melchizedek priests, His Father God, and He the Son of God, He must be God with us, and He must prove to be from old and everlasting. It was indeed impossible, but with God it was possible. God was building impossible situations, that only He could work out. 

     Six generations after David, Jehoram was an evil man and had an evil wife. Athaliah was the evil queen and when her son died, she went and killed all the descendants, except one. When God talked about His promise of His Son, He would often say “The LORD hath sworn.” That was like having four-hundred exclamation points at the end of the promise. In the Hebrew the word for the Lord is Yehovah, and to swear or promise is Shaba, so together that was Yehowsheba, “the Lord hath Sworn.” When the evil queen killed all the family I’m sure satan was getting excited because he thought he stamped out the seed of David, but remember, God had sworn it. So a princess who’s name happened to mean “the Lord hath sworn” Jehoshabeath, hid the little baby grandson and saved him. The plan for destroying the seed of David was ruined and Joash reigned for the Lord. 

     This was just one of the many impossibilities that the Lord put into the line of Jesus! Another very beautiful picture of His redemption and God’s Sovereignty is how when putting the name meanings in order they spell out the story of Jesus. Even the three names Jacob, Joseph, and Jesus right in a row has a very special message that wraps up the salvation story. “In other words, to the ‘heal-grabbing supplanter (Jacob)’ He will ‘exchange out life for death (Joseph)’ and bring ‘God’s Salvation’ (Jesus).” 

     After listening to this dynamite packed message, I felt light as a feather. Over and over my Savior was tested and proved to be the Son of God, and Salvation, and Holy. I felt like jumping and skipping as I am in Christ, it makes His significance even more significant. He’s my King and my Lord and everything He’s ever said has been true! And just because it’s HIM. Oh and He’s the God the impossible and I can trust Him must most fully and whole-heartedly. He has placed little treasures in His Word that He longs for us, for me to search out and find, just because, He IS.
