The Jireh... A forgotten Name of God. A fable based on a true story.
And in the beginning... He was.
Jireh lived beyond time, beyond the beginning. Before all, He was. He framed the world through wisdom, his creation was a labor of love. But this was during a time where He was a mystery to all. Looking from beyond the heavens concealed hoping to be found. He was one Name of many Names soon to be revealed to humanity through centuries. In fact Jireh was one of several Names hidden when the creations first were conceived. Jireh found His Name in agriculture. Deep within the first of the gardens of gardens. His Eden. The Jireh's responsibilities stretched into much needed of things. It knew well before His Name was called on that He would need to reach passed His own limitlessness to touch the walking clay. Jireh drew with wind. He danced in the rain. The Jireh still ever watched to see his people step from their needs and bend the laws of creation with His Name, and His very promises. He delighted to see His people prosper. To see them take hold of His power.
And He waited...
Jireh waited to reveal this Name of His. In fact how He wanted to reveal it. And in time He did to his best friend. Actually his friend thought up the Name for Him as he was finding his way through the hardest moments of his life. A moment Jireh revealed Himself to all humanity, then and into centuries to come. Jireh was needed that much. Jireh had many other Names. But Jireh found His entertainment in feeding birds, releasing rain on droughts, even lifting the countenance of elderly women after severe losses. The Jireh mimed through His creation, speaking life to all who watched. Many even found Him in His novel of 66 short stories.
And there was a blind creature who hated the Maker. And to spite the Maker, the blind creature over the centuries crawl about seeking whom he could devour. Somehow he made the need in humanity greater. He tried with his sightless reach to up and take what he could. Jireh's very Words were alive. Soon his people would take His Name, Jireh, and step onto the waters. This brought glory to Jireh, who would brush aside this clever blind creature just to show Himself strong.
And when men's hearts grew cold.
Jireh waited for humanity to call unto him. In their great need, in longing for a desire, His people found reasons to step out into unknown realms in search for that great answer. Jireh made rain fall. Jireh hid behind hills watching to turn stones. Jireh gave peace to men's heart when loss spread like a cancer. Jireh shared His glory with no man. Jireh was appalled by faith.
And Jireh waited... For man's hearts were cold. And colder they were as hourglass sand fell. To the point Jireh was before man everyday and everyday man failed to see Him. Jireh had to compete with the cares of man's world, the darkness of thieves, the hardness within man. Man forgot Jireh, thinking money was his god, while Jireh waited for him to simply look up.
Man did not look up.
Man chose not to look up.
The Name is derived from.
“Jehovah-Jireh” is one of the many different names of God found in the Old Testament. “Jehovah-Jireh” is the KJV’s translation of YHWH-Yireh and means “The LORD Will Provide” (Genesis 22:14). It is the name memorialized by Abraham when God provided the ram to be sacrificed in place of Isaac.
In life, many people have encountered calling on Jehovah-Jireh the Redemptive Name given to man which we can count on in time of need. Over the years this knowledge of His Name has become forgotten. It has been lost over the years, the decades even. As God's Word in the Book of James mentions that the cares of the world chole the world:
Mark 4:19 19but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.
It is hard to follow God when going against the currents of life. There is a promise in God's Word concerning our lost loved ones being saved. We have God's angels to deploy against their needs. If God looks over such flowers which spin in ponds, how much more our affairs. He is Jehovah-Jireh the Lord who shall be revealed as our Provider.
Jehovah Jireh poem Tracey L. Moore
If you died tonight do you know where you would spend eternity?
Jesus seems to get a bad rap these days. With so many religions and doctrines who can tell the path?
Jesus Himself speaks He is the Way the Truth and the Life... He says that no one can come to the Father but through Him... -John 14:6
Okay, here is an answer if you are confused. If Jesus is who He says He is He will back it up. So pray, from a sincere heart, pray and see Him answer you Himself. He's God. Let Him prove it, first thru His Word and then to you!
But don't let that blind serpent impress you with a counterfeit light...
