THE JEHOVAH TITLES
By Pastor Jared Decker
JEHOVAH-MAGEN & JEHOVAH-CHEREB
We have been studying the Jehovah titles systematically through the Scriptures as they appear in the Bible; however, we are going to skip down the line to the book of Deuteronomy.
First Mention: Deuteronomy 33:29
Pronunciation: Magen (Maw-gane’)
He is our Shield of DEFENSE and our Sword of OFFENSE.
1. He Is Our Shield.
2. He Is Our Sword.
God is our living arsenal! He provides for us all the weapons required for this warfare.
He is THE Truth, and His Word is the revelation of Himself.
The truth of God’s Word is a sword pre-sharpened for the hands of His children. That sword of truth becomes the main weapon of our warfare. Ephesians 6:17, Hebrews 4:12
We are fighting externally and internally.
Externally, we fight the error of this world, the constant battle to stay constant, and the circumstances of life that create conflict on a daily basis.
We fight for our testimony as a shining light is this world. I Timothy 6:11-16, II Corinthians 10:3-4
