JEHOVAH EL OLAM (Gen 21:33) – THE ETERNAL COVENANT KEEPING GOD

HAPPY WITH CHURCH TONIGHT

This evening was our last prophetic prayer meeting called ‘Saturday Class’ for this year. The anointing was strong. We praised the Living God! “Praise awaits You Lord in Zion”. We used praise to weave a ‘red carpet’ as entrance to the King of kings. “God is fearful in praises”. We are grateful for knowing God, for knowing His name, His Word and His Spirit. We are grateful for all the privileges and gifts we have in Christ! We sang: “How beautiful You are! How marvelous You are! In all the earth, there is no one else like You…” Tonight, the praise ‘brought God down’. It is a wonderful feeling to praise God as a Spiritual Body. It lifted us up to have a glimpse of heaven. Let everything that has breathe, praise the Lord!

Then the Word came (from Gen 21 and 26). There shall be rivers of water in the wilderness. God shall bless His people even now, during national recession. We shall not just survive, but blessings shall over flow from us to others. Isaac dug his father’s well. During famine he planted and reaped that same year a hundredfold. (We shall continue to serve God sacrificially. This time is not like in the past. Our blessings shall come quickly and mightily). God confirmed to Isaac the oath Abraham made when he dug the well. Isaac submitted to the vision and the anointing of his Father Abraham. He re-opened the same well that Abraham dug. The water of life was found under the rubbish the enemies have dumped in the well. Life is stronger than death. Prosperity is stronger than poverty! Healing is stronger than sickness!

Abraham dug the well and sacrificed six lambs by its side. This is to confirm ownership in the midst of the enemies. He then planted a tamarisk tree by the well, a symbol of Jehovah God. Then he raised an altar and prayed to God. He called the God of that well of the water of life in the desert by a new name: Jehovah El Olam, which means the Eternal God. This evening we received a new revelation of God’s name. It was ‘fresh water in the old well of our father’. Jehovah means the covenant keeping God. El is the short form of Elohim, the uncreated Creator. Olam means Eternity! The tamarisk tree grows in the desert or salty soil. Its leaves contain salt. It is an ever green tree. It has very hard wood. It lives very long. It has beautiful flowers at the end of spikes. You can only admire it from afar. It is called ‘an invader’ tree because it spreads fast and destroy other native trees around. It stores all the salt and the water of the desert in its leaves. The tamarisk tree is a symbol of El Olam. That is why Abraham planted it by the well of water. Abraham raised an altar and prayed to El Olam. God answers his prayers and helps Isaac to reclaim the wells.

JEHOVAH EL OLAM is ‘The God who slowly but surely accomplishes His covenantal promises’. He guarantees the fulfillment of His promises. He is the God of all generations. He promises to be the God of your descendants. He is the Eternal God, the uncreated Creator of the Universe; the God who has no beginning and no end; the God outside time and its effects; the God of always and forever! El Olam is the God of the history of mankind. He never gets old and never gets tired. All His attributes are eternal (love, patience, power, wisdom, word, promises…). He is self-existent and needs nothing. His power is eternal. He is the perfect God. Because He is eternal, God is a comfort to saints and a terror to sinners. He is also called The Ancient of Days (Dan 7:9, 10, 13, 22). Jesus is the El Olam, the Resurrection and the Life, the Beginning and the End (Jn 11:25, 26; Rev 22:13). Knowing El Olam delivers you from the fear of death; gives you the confidence that God will be with your children and their children. He is the source of all faithfulness and patience in all generations.

Soon we shall celebrate Christmas. When she knew that she was pregnant with Jesus (The Eternal Well of the Water of Life), Mary praised Jehovah El Olam, the covenant God off all generations:
“And Mary said:
“My soul magnifies the Lord,
And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;
For behold, henceforth ALL GENERATIONS will call me blessed.
For He who is mighty has done great things for me,
And holy is His name!!!
And His mercy is on those who fear Him
FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION
He has helped His servant Israel…
As He spoke to our fathers,
To Abraham and to his seed forever” (Lk 1:46-55)
May the revelation of God’s name Jehovah El Olam be a blessing to you and to your seed forever!
