Yahweh Is Our GodBy Vince Finnegan on 03/22/2020
Deuteronomy 6:4 Yahweh’s name means existing one, eternal one, present one.
Whenever God’s people stayed faithful to Him, their enemies were annihilated before them. If they wavered from Him and repented and turn back to Him again, their adversities were not only eliminated but utterly destroyed.
Isaiah 36:1-22 Sennacherib, king of Assyria, foolishly thought his successful military conquests were of his own doing. He told the inhabitants of Jerusalem that he would defeat Yahweh as he did with all the pagan gods.
Isaiah 37:14-20 Hezekiah (whose name means “my strength is the Lord” or “the Lord is my strength”) did the right thing - he went to Yahweh in prayer. (The name “Sennacherib” means bramble of destruction.)
21-29 God declares that not only does he know of the Assyrians’ boasting but that her achievements have only been possible because God has planned them, verses 23-27. But now, she has gone too far, and God will prevent her from achieving the ultimate end of their campaign - the capture of Jerusalem
36-38 185,000 died without Hezekiah lifting a finger, and Sennacherib was killed by his own son in the temple of a pagan god.
Yahweh has always cared for His people in every crisis they faced when they depended upon Him and not themselves or other forces in the world.
Genesis 12:3 Central to the great Abrahamic covenant is “I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse.”
Deuteronomy 28:1-14 If we keep His commandments, He will care for us no matter what happens to the rest of the world.
Deuteronomy 7:9 Yahweh has always been faithful to His promises, and He will be today. Trust Him who is the existing one, eternal one, present one.
Deuteronomy 20:1-4 Focus your mind on Him and not yourself or the world.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous; Yahweh is our God.
Isaiah 41:10, 13, 14
Romans 8:31, 28 God can work this out for good if we trust Him and not the fearful accusations.
1 Kings 8:37-40 That the world may know Yahweh is our God
