The Lord our Husband – Part 14

For your Maker is your husband,
The Lord of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.
Isaiah 54:5 (NKJV)

Names of the Lord Our Husband

Isaiah 54:5 shows us several names that are specific to the Lord as our Husband.

  • Our Maker is our Husband.
  • Our Husband’s name is the Lord of Hosts.
  • Our Redeemer is our Husband.
  • Our Husband is the Holy One of Israel.
  • Our Husband is called the God of the whole earth.

The Lord Our Redeemer

The name of the Lord our Redeemer along with His names the Lord of Hosts, the Holy One of Israel and Him as our Maker, are found together repeatedly in the Old Testament. Isaiah 54:5 connects these names of the Lord with the Lord our Husband. The title of the Lord the Redeemer appears in Scripture less frequently than the Lord of Hosts and the Holy One of Israel. However, the entire Word of the Lord reveals the nature and character of the Lord our Redeemer. The verses below for repentance and replacement refer specifically to the Lord as our Redeemer. Tying together the connection of the Lord our Redeemer as the Lord our Husband, the repentance and replacement focus on this aspect of drawing closer in our relationship with our Bridegroom as our Redeemer.
