Watch Focus: Jehovah Nissi: Raise Our Hands in His Name

Christian believers see challenges coming toward us from every side to overwhelm and defeat the cause of the Kingdom of God. The Lord is drawing us to the example of Moses on the mountain with raised hands as Joshua and the Israelites did battle with Amalek (Exod. 17).  As long as the hands were raised in prayer and praise in the name of the Lord, the Lord gave His people victory. The Lord told His people there would be ongoing battle against the forces of Darkness (Amalek) through all generations, yet we are to believe and pray and praise. It was here in Exodus 17 the Lord revealed His name as Jehovah Nissi, the Lord our Banner. In His Name, may we take fresh inspiration to renew prayer and praise, and see victory come for our families, Church, and the nation. Let us not give in to discouragement, isolation, and frustration. There is a call to be renewed to watch, pray, worship, and praise. May the Lord give all watchmen the victory as He gave to Moses, Aaron, Hur, and Joshua in the day of battle.

Exod. 17:15-16, “And Moses built an altar and called its name, The-Lord-Is-My-Banner; for he said, ‘Because the Lord has sworn: the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.’”

Gen 49:23-24, “The archers have bitterly grieved him, shot at him and hated him. But his bow remained in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong
by the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob (From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel).”

Ps. 18:34, “He teaches my hands to make war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.”

Eph. 6:12, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

2 Cor. 10:4, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.”
