Jehovah and Lord Himself

By rdlb, 12 August 2018 · 48 views

Jehovah Himself descended and assumed a Human in order that He might effect redemption. The name Lord is used and not Jehovah, because the Jehovah (יְהֹוָה Yᵉhôvâh, yeh-ho-vaw'  of the Old Testament is called the Lord (κύριος kýrios, koo'-ree-os) in the New, as is shown in the following passages.

Hear, O Israel, Jehovah our God is one Jehovah; and thou shalt love Jehovah God with all thy heart and with all thy soul (Deut. 6:4, 5)

The Lord our God is one Lord; and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul (Mark 12:29, 30)

Prepare ye the way of Jehovah, make level in the wilderness a highway for our God (Isaiah 40:3)

Thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare His way (Luke 1:76)

The first statement, that it was Jehovah God Himself who descended and became Man, is made clear in the following passages: --

Behold, a virgin shall conceive and shall bear a Son, who shall be called God-with-us (Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:22, 23).

Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, God, Mighty, Father of Eternity, the Prince of Peace (Isa. 9:6).

It shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for Him that He may deliver us; this is Jehovah; we have waited for Him; let us exult and be glad in His salvation (Isa. 25:9).

The voice of one crying in the desert, Prepare ye the way of Jehovah; make level in the wilderness a highway for our God, and all flesh shall see it together (Isa. 40:3, 5).

Behold, the Lord Jehovah cometh in strength, and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him. He shall feed His flock like a shepherd (Isa. 40:10, 11).

Jehovah said, Sing for joy and be glad, O daughter of Zion; for lo, I come to dwell in the midst of thee. Then many nations shall cleave to Jehovah in that day (Zech. 2:10, 11).

I, Jehovah, have called thee in righteousness, and I will give thee for a covenant of the people. I am Jehovah; this is My name; My glory will I not give to another (Isa. 42:6-8).

Behold, the days come, that I will raise up unto David a righteous Branch; and He shall reign as King, and He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth, and this is His name, Jehovah our righteousness (Jer. 23:5, 6; 33:15, 16).

See also the places where the Lord's coming is called "the day of Jehovah", as in (Isa. 13:6, 9, 13, 22; Ezek. 31:15; Joel 1:15; 2:1, 2, 11; 3:1, 14, 18; Amos 5:13, 18, 20; Zeph. 1:7-18; Zech. 14:1, 4-21).

From the Word we read where Jehovah Himself says that He Himself is the Saviour and Redeemer, as in the following: --

Am I not Jehovah, and there is no God else beside Me? A just God and a Saviour, there is none beside Me (Isa. 45:21, 22).

I am Jehovah; and beside Me there is no Saviour (Isa. 43:11).

I am Jehovah thy God, and thou shalt acknowledge no God beside Me and there is no Saviour beside Me (Hos. 13:4).

That all flesh may know that I Jehovah am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer (Isa. 49:26; 60:16).

As for our Redeemer, Jehovah of Hosts is His name (Isa. 47:4).

Their Redeemer is strong; Jehovah of Hosts is His name (Jer. 50:34).

O Jehovah, my Rock and my Redeemer (Ps. 19:14).

Thus said Jehovah, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, I am Jehovah thy God (Isa. 48:17; 43:14; 49:7).

Thus said Jehovah, thy Redeemer; I am Jehovah that maketh all things, even alone by Myself (Isa. 44:24).

Thus said Jehovah, the King of Israel, and His Redeemer, Jehovah of Hosts, I am the First and I am the Last; and beside Me there is no God (Isa. 44:6).

Thou, O Jehovah, art our Father, our Redeemer; from everlasting is Thy name (Isa. 63:16).

With everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, said Jehovah, Thy Redeemer (Isa. 54:8).

Thou hast redeemed me, O Jehovah of truth (Ps. 31:5).

Let Israel hope in Jehovah; for with Jehovah there is mercy, and with Him is plenteous redemption. And He shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities (Ps. 130:7, 8).

Jehovah of Hosts is His name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; the God of the whole earth shall He be called (Isa. 54:5).
