God

Isiaiah 54:5 (KJV)

For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

Bible Commentary

Isaiah 54:5 is an amazing Bible verse where the Lord is describing Himself as not only our Creator, but our Husband. It is fascinating that God describes Himself in six different ways in this one verse!

We all relate to God differently. If you could describe Who God is to you in just one word, what would that word be?

Chances are, it’s the area in your life where you have needed Him most and experienced Him most. Maybe it’s: Father, Savior, Almighty, Provider, Friend, Comforter and the list goes on.

There are so many ways we can know God, and there are many ways we can relate to Jesus Christ.

DavidNorman-John3-5

First, God calls Himself our Maker. Psalm 139:13 says, “For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.” He designed our body make-up, yes but also our souls—our likes and dislikes, our personality traits and characteristics. Each of us is a unique and masterful creation. The miracle of the human form goes beyond our comprehension in its complexities and creative design.

Secondly, and our main focus for today, He calls attention to the fact that not only is He our Creator, but our Husband. What does He mean by that? How can God be our husband?

Unlocking the Truth - Whatever We Need

First of all, let’s look at the Hebrew meaning of the word, Husband, which is: to be master, to marry: Beulah have dominion, chief man.

As Christians, we have accepted Christ as our Savior and we make up the church body, which is the bride of Christ. There are many analogies throughout the Bible of this relationship between the Lord and his bride. The entire book of Song of Solomon and Ephesians 5:23 are great examples.

These biblical examples teach us that God desires and pursues a one-on-one, intimate relationship with us, much like a suitor courting a young lady. If we relate to God in only one way, as a Father for example, it might seem strange to look at Him as our Husband.

But Jesus Christ was sent to earth as a man so He could relate to many different people in many different ways. To the woman at the well, He was the Messiah. To the lepers and the blind man, He was Healer. To the demon-oppressed, He was Deliverer. To His disciples, He was Teacher and Friend.

Still true today, Jesus Christ is whatever we need. He overcame death and the grave so that He could be with each one of us, in the power of the Holy Spirit.

In his most recent sermon, my husband said God impressed upon him that the most under-utilized gift we have is the gift of the Holy Spirit. We have the Presence and the power of God living within us, yet we muddle through on our own without tapping into the reservoir of life and love.

In John 16:33 Jesus said, “…but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

He made available to us a holy communion, which is a holy matrimony between Christ and His people. We can personally tap into this holy matrimony through the power of the Holy Spirit—our Comforter and Helper.

We don’t have to live in the depths of the murky waters. Don’t get stuck in the pain of loneliness, of despair and poverty, or whatever it is that has you stuck in captivity. (Luke 4:18)

Jesus said in John 14:26, “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”

We can overcome whatever this life dishes out. Why? Because Jesus did. There is no greater love than the intimate love of our Savior, our Husband. A husband is master, and the chief man as the definition says. He has dominion, which is the power that resides in us.

Christ is whatever we need. Here and now.

He is our Redeemer, and the Holy One of Israel. He is the God of the whole earth. But to you personally, right now, He is everything you need. Close your eyes, and reach out for it in the riches of His grace.

Isaiah 54:5
For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

Study Isaiah 54:5 and find everything you need in the Lord Jesus Christ.
