VIDEO:  Adonai, Jehovah Rohi, Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Rophe

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:1-3 AKJV)

Certain names of God apply directly to the Son of God. Jesus is God, and has been with God from the beginning. Several names of God refer to Jesus. 


After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I Am your shield, and your exceeding great reward. And Abram said, LORD God, what will you give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? (Genesis 15:1-2 AKJV)

The Hebrew word ‘ăḏōnāy means lord. It is an emphatic, forceful declaration of ‘āḏôn (a-don) often used with a possessive “my.” It doesn’t always refer to God or a god, but it can be used to address God. 

The first time this word appears in the recorded scripture is when Abram is confronting God, his Owner and Master, about the promise to make him a ‘nation’ out of his descendants. When God mentioned giving Abram something, his form of address was not only declaring his submission to God but also reminding God that a promised provision remained unfulfilled.

In today’s world, we often forget the word lord actually means owner/master. There are two sides to the owner or master relationship:

  1. If you are owned by someone and they are your master, you are expected to know them and do what they want you to do.
  2. If you are the master and owner of someone you must provide and care for them.

When we call Jesus Lord, we enter into this type of relationship. He is our Owner, Master. Many Christians look to Him for provision but do they submit to Him as Master? Are they learning about their Master and trying to work for Him? 


The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. (Psalms 23:1 AKJV)

Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, You that lead Joseph like a flock; You that dwell between the cherubim, shine forth. (Psalms 80:1 AKJV)

King David referred to the Lord as a shepherd twice. This is another aspect of the master/owner relationship. A shepherd cares for and directs the sheep as well as protects them. Jesus is referred to as the Shepherd in prophecy:

But his bow stayed 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:) (Genesis 49:24 AKJV)

 Therefore thus said the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a Stone, a tried Stone, a precious Corner Stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make haste. (Isaiah 28:16 AKJV)

To you therefore which believe He is precious: but to them which be disobedient, the Stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the Head of the Corner. (1 Peter 2:7 AKJV)

We know that the verse in Genesis is referring to Jesus because He is prophesied as the cornerstone, then confirmed to be so by Peter. There are additional scripture to confirm this:

He shall feed His flock like a Shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. (Isaiah 40:11 AKJV)

And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, you shall receive a crown of glory that fades not away. (1 Peter 5:4 AKJV)

Jesus is our Shepherd, He provides for us, cares for us, and directs our path. 


And Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide So to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.” (Genesis 22:14 BSB)

The only time the Old Testament uses this name it is actually paired with the name of God: Yahweh. The Hebrew word yir'ê actually means “will see to it.” In other words, God will see to what we need: He is the provider. 

To fully comprehend this aspect of God, we need to see the context in which it was used. Abraham finally had a son through Sarah after waiting 24 years. Then, when the child was older, God asked Abraham to offer Isaac as a sacrifice. 

Abraham gathered the supplies necessary for the sacrifice, traveled a long way with Isaac, and actually placed him on the altar before a ram appeared to take the place of his son. God had a planned provision and blessing, but Abraham had to be obedient in order to receive that provision! 

Jesus physically demonstrated that He is our provider by multiplying provision to feed those who were seeking to learn from Him. This miracle was recorded in all four of the Gospels. The Lord also told us:

Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your Heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. But seek you first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. (Matthew 6:31-33 AKJV) 

When we seek God first, He will take care of the rest! Our Lord is our provider.


And said, If you will diligently listen to the voice of the LORD your God, and will do that which is right in His sight, and will give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of these diseases on you, which I have brought on the Egyptians: for I Am the LORD that heals you. (Exodus 15:26 AKJV)

When God taught His people His ways, one of the benefits of walking in them was healing. God is our Healer. Jesus is also referred to this way:

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is on Me; because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the meek; He has sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound… (Isaiah 61:1 KJV)

The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised… (Luke 4:18 AKJV)

Isaiah prophesied what Jesus would do, then Jesus fulfilled the prophecy, declaring that He was the fulfillment. Wherever Jesus went, He healed “them all.” He is our Healer. 

These are the names of God that describe His role as Master/Owner. In order to receive from the Lord in these ways, we need to be doing our part: we are His bond servants. This means we have willingly entered into servitude as we call Him, Lord. 

Some of the servants of the Lord are still awaiting release from bondage or a fulfillment of a promise. While we wait, we should not only be learning about Him and attempting to serve Him, but we should also have an attitude of gratefulness for what has been provided. 

1. You were born, created and designed by God for a specific purpose
a. Each of us has gifts we were born with
b. Some of us were born into families that had provision
2. We have a place to lay our heads each night
3. We have enough food to survive

These are the basic necessities of life. Each of us can be thankful for these. What else can you thank God for? 

When we thank God for what we have, it opens the door to more blessings. When we rejoice as someone else receives what we desire, it also keeps that door open for us! We must not focus on what we lack, but thank God for what we have! 

So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them [obeying them] will be like a sensible (prudent, practical, wise) man who built his house upon the rock. And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. (Matthew 7:24-25 AMPC)

As we focus on what Jesus has done for us and try to do what He says, we can stand no matter what comes against us. Being a Christian doesn’t mean we won’t face challenges, it simply means that our Lord will sustain us through them all!

Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:

  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 1

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.

Keys to Authority for Every Believer

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 2

There is untapped power that is easy for every Christian to access in the form of authority. The keys to this authority will unlock weapons we can use to free ourselves from the attacks of the enemy. We must be intimately aware of the bounds and limitations of our weapon if they are to be used effectively. 

Find out about your authority:
  • Why you need it.
  • Where it comes from.
  • What you can do with it.
  • How to get more.

Destroying Curses in the Courts of Heaven

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 3

Our rights to appear in the Courts of Heaven have been greatly undervalued. The missing key to our authority is here. Jesus has provided the access and the Bible shows us the court procedures. When we learn to operate in our rightful place as children of the Most High, the enemy will be defeated and we will see the victory we have prayed for.

The death of Jesus freed us from the curse of the law. However, we must declare this freedom just as we must make a declaration for our salvation.

  • Can curses be passed to our children?
  • What are signs of a curse?
  • How do you get rid of one?

Every answer is backed by scripture. Come and find out how easy it is to be free!

Roadmap to Heaven

Believers’ Boot Camp, Volume 4

As I meditated and sought the Lord, a vision overcame me. A “Roadmap to Heaven” was deposited into my soul. We are entering a season of unparalleled access to Heaven. Jesus is calling all who are His to visit with Him in the Secret Place of the Most High.

  • What is the Secret Place?
  • How do we enter?
  • What will we find there?

The Bible holds the answers, the mystery has been revealed. As you use the map given in this book to journey to the Secret Place, discover your destiny and find the gifts the Holy Spirit will bring along the way.
