The Lord Is
Psalm 18:2 (NKJV) The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.
Even the Psalmist casts a picture of Jesus, the Christ, with the carefully chosen words that he uses to encourage and strengthen himself. Jesus is the Rock of our salvation, and by inference, can be seen as the object being spoken of: He is Jehovah’s means of salvation, rescue, way of escape from calamity, and defender who comes for our well being, safety, security, prosperity and victory.
It is by virtue of the indwelling Christ that anointing fills the life of the believer and thus is our salvation with all that covenant state includes.
The Lord is, the great I AM, the Lord is, my rock, cela’, my high and lofty stronghold of YHWH, and my fortress, matsuwd, safety net of defence, and my deliverer, palat, way of escape to safety and security, my God, ‘el, my Immanuel, the one true God who is the Mighty One of Israel, my strength, tsuwr, my Mighty One, the stone the builders rejected, in whom I will trust, chacah, into whom I will flee for protection and make my refuge; My shield, magen, my armed defence and buckler, the horn, qeren, the container of the oil of anointing (the Anointed One and His anointing), of my salvation, yesha‘, He is my salvation which is my welfare, prosperity, victory, and safety, my stronghold, misgab, my secure high place of refuge in God.
The Lord Is! He always was, and is, and ever will be.
Revelation 4:8 (NKJV) The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”
He changes not and will always be your hiding place of safety, security, well-being, prosperity, and victory. God is good; All the time!
