What's in a Name

Almighty’s the name of El Shaddai

No child of His will ever die

Created is man by Elohim

And all should live to worship Him


Jehovah Rohi Shepherds the flock

Stand now firm upon The Rock

Jehovah Shammah The Lord is there

Guiding His sheep with loving care


Jehovah Jireh The Lord will provide

Sustaining all who will abide

Who trust in Him, His true report

Will see God’s arm is all but short


Jehovah Tzedkenu righteous all through

Perfect in splendour one should pursue

Giver of life Jesus His Son

El Olam The eternal One


Jehovah Rophe The Lord who heals

Suffering Servant knows how it feels

Thirty-nine stripes The Saviour bore

Life’s living Key through Heaven’s door


Jehovah Machaddesh Saviour by grace

God’s righteous few will see His face

Who’s heart and arms are open wide

Who’s Holy Ghost dwells inside


Jehovah Shalom The Lord of peace

The King whose reign will never cease

To troubled hearts He brings delight

Setting the foe in total flight


Jehovah Nissi gives victory to all

Who’ll bow their knee and heed His call

God our banner standard held high

Such are the names never to die…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
