In the King James Version Bible, Jehovah is differentiated from all of the other references of God as Lord by rendering it in all capitals, i.e. “LORD.” So as you read through the KJV Bible, anytime you see “LORD,” it is the name of God, “Jehovah.”
Many choose to translate the Hebrew for “LORD” using the name “Yahweh.” Either way it is translated, “Jehovah” or “Yahweh, it is referencing the same “LORD.” The reason both of these are acceptable is that “LORD” is in fact a “tetragrammaton” (four Hebrew letters containing only consonants, e.g. no vowels). It is in the Hebrew: YHVH or sometimes preferred to be rendered, “YHWH“, pronounced in the Hebrew alphabet, “yod-heh-vov-heh,” or “yod-heh-wov-heh.” If one chooses to use the first rendering, “YHVH,” it is pronounced “Jehovah,” and the second rendering “YHWH” it is pronounced, “Yahweh.” Most Hebrew to English scholars choose the pronunciation, “Jehovah,” which is the rendering we have chosen to use in our pronouncing this great “I AM” name of God.
Some of the other “Jehovah” (or redemptive) names of God are:
Jehovah Jireh – God will provide (Genesis 22:14)
Jehovah Rapha – God our Healer; Physician, Medicine, Balm (Exodus 15:26)
Jehovah Tsidqenu – God our righteousness (Jeremiah 23:6)
Jehovah Nissi – God our Banner, Conqueror, Victory (Exodus 17:15-16)
Jehovah Shalom – God our Peace (Judges 6:24)
Jehovah Shamah – God is Present (Ezekiel 48:35) (Speaks of the New Jerusalem in the next age and its name)
There are many other “Jehovah” Names in scripture, each revealing a specific part of God’s redemptive character or nature. In this teaching, we are studying the character and nature of “Jehovah Tsaba,” LORD of hosts. We’re taking time to give this understanding so that you may better appreciate what we are saying when we speak of “Jehovah Tsaba,” (Lord of the angelic armies). Jehovah Tsaba is distinguished from all the other Jehovah names in that He is also given a title, “King of Glory!” (Remember in the following verse, when you see all capitals, “LORD,” it is “Jehovah”):
Psalms 24:1-10 KJV “A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. (2) For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. (7) Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. (8) Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. (9) Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. (10) Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.”
So to make certain that we get the proper meaning of the Name of God, “LORD of hosts,” we properly translate it “Jehovah Tsaba,” shown here to be “The LORD strong might in Battle,” who holds the title, “King of Glory.” Modern Bible translations most often translate Jehovah Tsaba as “Lord of the angel armies.” Whether we are speaking of “Jehovah strong and mighty, Jehovah mighty in battle,” or speaking of The King of Glory, in both cases He is Jehovah Tsaba (LORD of hosts).
In this teaching, Pastor Don lays the foundation for better understanding as this series continues regarding a great last-days event named after this great Jehovah name. The event is called in scripture: The Day of Jehovah Tsaba.
