In the teaching Dr. Don G Pickney explains the uniqueness and significance of God's Jehovah "Sir name," Tsaba. As Jehovah Tsaba, God manifests Himself as "Jehovah, strong and mighty, Jehovah Might in Battle." He takes an official title for His works as Jehovah Tsaba: King of Glory!
All of this is found in Psalms 24:8-10 LITV "Who is this King of Glory? Jehovah strong and mighty! Jehovah mighty in battle! (9) Lift up your heads, O gates; even lift up, O everlasting doors; and the King of Glory shall come in. (10) Who is this King of Glory? Jehovah of Hosts, He is the King of Glory. Selah.
The word "hosts" in God's name, Jehovah of Hosts, is referencing His host of innumerable angelic messengers and warriors. They all make up God's great heavenly army. To illustrate how God chooses to "sir name" Himself, Pastor Don takes us through how God's name, Jehovah Jireh (the Lord our Provider) came to be. Using it as an example, we learn the process as God spoke to Abraham to take his only son, Isaac, travel into the land of Moriah, and offer him up for a sacrifice upon a mountain that God would show him. Obediently, Abraham got up early in the morning, took a few of his servants and their pack animals and started out. For three days they journeyed until suddenly as he came to a mountain, God revealed to him the mountain upon which he was to offer up his son.
Pastor Don said, "This being typical of our faith walk, God often requires us to take steps of faith in obedience without fully understanding why." As Abraham left his servants at the foot of the mountain with this exclamation: " I and the boy will go over there that we may worship and may return to you." The significance of this is that Abraham was learning two principles that every believer must use in concert together: 1) obedience to God's voice; and 2) faith in whatever He has promised. In this case it proved to be quite a test for Abraham because he knew he must absolutely obey God's voice, yet he also must believe the promise God had sworn to him that "in Isaac's seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed." His conclusion? He was going to offer Isaac up for a burnt offering, yet somehow, God was going to raise him up so that he could grow up to be a man and produce prodigious seed. Isaac had to marry and have a child through which the Abrahamic blessing would flow to fulfill God's promise. This explains his statement to his servants, "I and the boy will go over there that WE may worship and may return to you." HE WOULD RETURN WITH HIS SON! So, "Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it on his son Isaac; and he took the fire and the knife in his hand. And the two went together." On the way up the mountain, Isaac realized they had not brought the animal for the sacrifice. When he asked his dad, Abraham replied, "My son, God will see to the lamb for Himself, for a burnt offering." This was Abraham's faith speaking, even as he was obeying to offer up his son.
As Abraham reached the top of the mountain where the place was to sacrifice his son, He bound Isaac with cords, placed the wood they had brought with them. Abraham raised the knife, and his hand received its signal to stab the boy. but before his arm could complete its swing downward, an angel suddenly appeared and gave a command for his arm to stop... to freeze. Abraham's arm, and the knife in his hand was supernaturally brought to a halt! AND GOD ACCOUNTED THAT ABRAHAM HAD INDEED SLAIN HIS SON!
Hebrews 11:17-19 AMP By faith Abraham, when he was put to the test [while the testing of his faith was still in progress], had already brought Isaac for an offering; he who had gladly received and welcomed [God's] promises was ready to sacrifice his only son, [Gen. 22:1-10.] (18) Of whom it was said, Through Isaac shall your descendants be reckoned. [Gen. 21:12.] (19) For he reasoned that God was able to raise [him] up even from among the dead. Indeed in the sense that Isaac was figuratively dead [potentially sacrificed], he did [actually] receive him back from the dead."
At that moment, the angel provided a ram caught in a thicket, and commanded Abraham to use it and complete the sacrifice. What exactly was this sacrifice? God was using the blood of Isaac (in a figure) to cut a covenant with Abraham to seal the promise he had already given. And God in that moment ceremonially "swore an oath upon Himself as God" that He would never fail to keep a promise to any of the seed who would be blessed through Abraham's son, Isaac. The name upon which God swore this oath, was the Name: Jehovah Jireh!
Genesis 22:14 NLT "Abraham named the place Yahweh-Jireh (which means "the LORD will provide"). To this day, people still use that name saying: "On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided."
Every time we trust in a promise from God, we believe based on two things: God's promise and His Oath (upon Himself).
