Where is Jehovahjireh?


The place where Abraham was provided a ram to sacrifice in place of his son, he called “Jehovahjireh” meaning that “In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.” God made provision for a ram to be made available to Abraham on a mount in the land of Moriah (Genesis 22:2) for the sacrifice. On a mount, God showed Abraham the sacrificial ram.

Points to ponder:
On the mount that looked like a skull a.k.a. Golgotha (in Hebrew) commonly known as Calvary, God showed us his provision of salvation for all of mankind, by providing his only begotten son – the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. On mount Golgotha, salvation was seen. The real place that can be called Jehovahjireh is mount Golgotha i.e., Calvary. At calvary, you will see the provision of the Lord as he is the provider. Do you believe in Jesus, God’s salvation who is seen on the Cross on the mount of the Lord.

Genesis 22:14 (KJV)
14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.
