Yahweh, Day 27
Day 27 Yahweh... is a Banner/Standard!
It is under this Standard/Banner by which we war.
Exodus 17:15-16 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
And Moses built an altar and named it, "The Lord Is My Banner." [Or Yahweh-nissi as footnoted] He said, “Indeed, [my] hand is [lifted up] toward the Lord’s throne. The Lord will be at war with Amalek from generation to generation.”
Joshua had led the army of Yahweh into the valley of battle ... 'Joshua' being our Savior's given Hebrew name ... 'Jesus' being the Greek name.
The picture here ... Our Savior ... Joshua/YahShua/Jesus ... leads His people into battle under the Flag/Standard of Yahweh ... the Eternal One. Yahweh is here seen as both present/involved and superintending the onslaught of the Kingdom of God against the Gates of Hell.
Yahweh is a Warrior ... as are His people.
Intercessory Prayer: Oh Father! We are locked in a life and death battle for the souls of men! Oh God! We are far too often more concerned for the pleasure of our own estates than in the conduct of Your mission! Oh God! Forgive! Oh God! For Your Name’s sake … inspire and send us out on to the field of battle! In Jesus Name. Amen.
