Jehovah Sidqenu - The Lord Is Righteousness

March 22, 2017

In Bible times, when a person had leprosy, they would use rags to cover their open sores because they were very contagious. In the book of Isaiah, it says that all of our righteous acts are like filthy rags - like the unclean rags used by people with leprosy. So if our good acts can never be righteous to God, then how can we live in Heaven? In this message, Jill teaches about our Jehovah Sidqenu, which means "Jesus is my righteousness." She lets us know how we can be righteous in God's eyes. 

This is the 8th and final message in Jill's 8-message series "The Names of God." 

Jeremiah 23:5-6; Job 31:6; Psalm 62:9; Daniel 5; Luke 15

Sheep rely on their shepherd to love them, lead them, and give them food and water. In this same way, we can depend on the Lord to be our shepherd, and he will love us, lead us, and provide nourishment for our soul. In this message, Jill talks about God as our Jehovah Ro'i, or shepherd, so we can know what wonderful things God provides for us, His sheep. This is the 7th message in Jill's 8-message series "The Names of God."  Ezekiel 34:2-17; Psalm 23; John 10:6; Luke 15

Where is God when bad stuff happens? That's a question so many of us have asked ourselves when nothing's gone right, when someone has died, or when we've suffered a broken relationship. Jehovah Shalom means "the God of peace," and it describes the perfect balance in God's nature and the tranquility He can bring us. In this message, Jill teaches on how we can know God as our Jehovah Shalom, so we can know how to experience His peace in the midst of life's chaos.  This is the 6th message in Jill's 8-message series "The Names of God."

A bad temper, a constant desire to overindulge on brownies, or a tendency to not trust God are all examples of battles we can face from time to time. This battle of the flesh will always exist, but it's God's battle not ours. In this message, Jill explains how we can know God as our Jehovah Nissi, or our banner, so that we can rely on Him to win our battles. This is the 5th message in Jill's 8-message series "The Names of God."  Exodus 14:14-16, 17; I Corinthians 10; Deuteronomy 25:17-18; Genesis 36:1

Bitterness, anger, disappointment, and sadness are all feelings that can cause us to have a bad attitude, and we can feel stuck in that frame of mind. But when we let Him, God can heal our soul, spirit, and body. In this message, Jill talks about God as our Jehovah Rophe, or healer, and lets us know what amazing things can happen when we let God heal our attitude.  This is the 4th message in Jill's 8-message series "The Names of God."  Exodus 15:13, 15:18, 15:21, 16:2, 16:6, 17:3; Numbers 14:2, 16; I Corinthians 10:10; Romans 1, 5:12-21

In Genesis, God asked Abraham to go to Mount Moriah to sacrifice his son, Isaac. Abraham obeyed God and took Isaac up the mountain. On the way, Isaac kept asking his father what they would be sacrificing. When it became clear what was happening, Isaac obeyed his father - even though he was probably very frightened. Are you like Isaac, willing to be a sacrifice for God? In this message, Jill helps us understand God as our Jehovah-Jireh, our provider, so we can learn to be committed to God's plan.  This is the 3rd message in Jill's 8-message series "The Names of God."  Genesis 3:21, 3:23, 22, 28; Exodus 3:3, 6:2-3; Leviticus 19:2

In Bible times, every seven years all slaves had the chance to go free. If they chose to stay with their masters, they would be taken to the public market and a peg was put through one of the slave's ears to mutilate the ear. That way he would be "marked" as a slave who loved his master and did not want to go free. We are called to serve God as willing slaves. Do you consider yourself "marked" for God? In this message, Jill explores God as our Adonai, or master, to help us understand how we can serve God better.  This is the 2nd message in Jill's 8-message series "The Names of God."  Genesis 2, 3, 15, 18; Isaiah 6:1; I Peter 3; Exodus 3 & 6:1-2

The wonder of God's creation is all around us. Look at the flowers, the birds, and the tiniest insects, and you'll discover the amazing plan and intricate design of His creations. And then think about how much more he cares for us and his entire universe. In this message, Jill helps us understand God as our Elohim, or creator. This is the 1st message in Jill's 8-message series "The Names of God."  John 1:1, 17; Genesis 1, 2, 3:22, 9:8; Isaiah 14-18

How can we live above the problems of everyday life? Habakkuk tells us how, and it's all about getting God's perspective. There is unspeakable joy in embracing, accepting, and submitting to whatever "burden" God has called each of us to endure. With His help, we can live above it. Teaching from the book of Habakkuk, this is the second message in Jill's two-message series on the spiritual art of leadership.

Effective ministry will not happen if the ones who are seeking to minister have lost their cutting edge. In building the Kingdom, it is critical to stay spiritually sharp. The question is knowing how to do that. Based on 2 Kings 6:1-7, this is the first message in Jill's two-message series on the spiritual art of leadership.

Some of the most well-known Bible characters had bad days - just as we do. No matter what your struggle may be today - depression, low self-esteem, bitterness, disappointment, anger, jealousy, weariness, even a lost will to live - there is a person in the Bible who felt those exact same feelings. Jill takes us through this familiar story to reveal the Father's heart.
