What Is the Meaning of the Name El Shaddai?
Dawn Wilson
In 1982, Amy Grant made the song “El Shaddai” famous. Though written by Michael Card and John Thompson for Card’s 1981 debut album, the God-honoring song is more closely associated with Grant. As she sang, “Age to age you’re still the same, by the power of the name,” she magnified God Almighty—the wonderful “El Shaddai.”

In 1982, Amy Grant made the song “El Shaddai” famous. Though written by Michael Card and John Thompson for Card’s 1981 debut album, the God-honoring song is more closely associated with Grant. As she sang, “Age to age you’re still the same, by the power of the name,” she magnified God Almighty—the wonderful “El Shaddai.”


What does the Old Testament word shaddai mean, and is there a message in this name for the Church? Let's explore the meaning of this name from the Bible and how we can apply it to our relationship with God today:

El Shaddai—Shades of Meaning?
https://www.biblestudytools.com/bible-study/topical-studies/what-is-the-meaning-of-the-name-shaddai.html

There is considerable debate surrounding the name Shaddai. I believe the various possibilities are shades of meaning that give us greater understanding of who God is and what He does.

Among Christians, the most common interpretation of shaddai today is “mighty,” and El Shaddai would translate to “God Almighty.” Coinciding with this, one suggested root meaning for El Shaddai is “The Overpowerer,” meaning God will do what He purposes to do, overpowering all opposition.

Some interpret shaddai as “sufficient,” and God is the “All-sufficient One.” Either interpretation—mighty or sufficient—works for me, because the Almighty is the God who is enough! He is more than sufficient to meet any need. He is power and provision. In great compassion, He sustains, nourishes and protects me. He takes my weakness and gives me strength. He takes my inadequate resources and in His sufficiency uses them for His great and powerful purposes.

Yet another possible meaning of El Shaddai is “The God of the Mountain.” Some Messianic teachers say shaddai comes from the Akkadian word shaddu, meaning “mountain.” God lives in heaven, but He also inhabited a mountain top—Mount Sinai. It was on this mountain Moses met with God and received the Ten Commandments. 

It might be argued God’s presence on that mountain reminded the Israelites of His power and provision. The God of the Mountain was the same God who mightily led His people from Egypt and appeared to them as a cloud by day and a fire at night. He is the God who expected obedience to His commands, and swiftly and powerfully took action against those who rebelled and ignored His will. 


How Is God Mighty?

I want to focus on “shaddai” as “almighty." What does “God is Almighty” look like in practical terms?

The most obvious expression of God’s might is as the Creator. He is the Maker of all things in the universe—including humans. That isn’t open to dispute in Scripture. “All things were made by Him, and without him was not any thing made that was made” (John 1:3). All things were created through the Lord’s power and for Him.

Think of the greatest construction workers you know and the beautiful things they build. God is infinitely a better Constructor than that! Hebrews 3:4 says it this way: “the builder of all things is God.”

God’s might is far beyond ours because He is eternal—the everlasting God from before time and into the timeless future. He is the everlasting King of heaven; and as the Sovereign God, He is answerable to no one! 

God does “great and awesome” wonders—miracles! There is nothing too hard Him. He has unlimited power. We cannot even imagine all El Shaddai can do!


El Shaddai through the Old Testament

We discover El Shaddai throughout the years of the Patriarchs. Although the surrounding nations had many gods, the Hebrews had one, the Almighty. We see this name for God in Genesis 17:1 when Abraham spoke with God, and also in Genesis 28:3 and 35:11.

Jacob asked God Almighty for mercy for his sons concerning their brother Joseph. Later, he described to Joseph how the Almighty appeared to him at Luz.

God told Moses of His encounters with Abraham and Jacob as God Almighty, and He added a new name in Exodus 6:2-3—the LORD. Ezekiel also mentioned God’s might and power.

Contending with the Almighty
The name El Shaddai is found repeatedly in the book of Job, and that is no surprise. Though Job initially contended with the Almighty, God’s display of power and wisdom caused the Patriarch to shut his mouth before the Lord’s sovereignty and authority.

The Psalmist wrote about those who contend with and plot against the Father and His anointed Son—trying to claim greater wisdom and power than the Lord of heaven. But Scripture says God laughs at their silly assertions.

Truly, we can mock and play games with God all we want, but God’s wisdom and power are so far beyond us. We are foolish to contend with the Almighty.

Does Our Culture Discount El Shaddai?

In modern culture, the proclamation of God’s power has gone silent in many churches. A God of love is more palpable, more easily received, than the God who is sovereign and powerful—the Mighty God who can turn the hearts of kings and direct nations to do His will.

Habakkuk’s prayer (3:1-16) expressed some of the reasons the prophet trembled over a “report” about the Lord. He recounted the Lord’s mighty character and works, His anger over sin, and His sovereignty over the nations. When God’s prophets spoke His words with power, sometimes people and nations listened and turned to the Lord; but others resisted God. So it is today when God’s people speak up about His power and might.

If pastors preach the whole counsel of God, they will remind God’s people to see Him as He is: the reigning “Lord God Almighty” who will someday exert His great power and reign forever. He is the God who chooses us to make us a holy people and He transforms us with His power. He is to be honored with reverence and awe—holy “fear of the Lord.”

The Almighty Invites Us to Trust Him

The mighty God, embodied in Jesus Christ, fed thousands from simple provisions. He healed people and cast out demons that tormented them. He worked mighty miracles to assist His people and rescue them. He even raised people from the dead!

What a mighty God we serve—and we need to praise Him. He invites us to call on Him in prayer so He can show us great and mighty things. We can trust Him because He is trustworthy; He is our solid rock and hiding place, our deliverer and protector. We are wise to love and trust Him with all our heart, soul and mind.

The Lord says, “Come to Me,” because He knows His power and provision will lead to the peace of hope and praise. 

The Paradox of Might and Humility
The Psalmist says, “Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength! We will sing and praise your power.” The Psalmist looked forward to the Messiah who would come in power; and Zechariah’s words in Luke 1:68 were a song of praise for God’s redemption in Christ.

Yet the wonder of all wonders is that the God who is El Shaddai would humble Himself to bring us salvation in His Son. The redeemed church is to thank and praise the meek and mighty Savior.

The watching church will see the Mighty God of Isaiah 9:6 come again with “power and great glory.” This One who has the name above all names will be honored throughout eternity for the mercy He extended to those who call on His name. In heaven, all of God’s creation will ascribe to Him “glory, majesty, power and authority”—the praise El Shaddai is due “forevermore.”

7 Supernatural Benefits of Jesus’ Blood

7 Supernatural Benefits of Jesus’ Blood
OPINION (Charisma) – In the Scriptures, we can find at least seven benefits concerning what the blood of Jesus has done for us. We overcome the devil and his works when we testify to what Jesus’ blood has accomplished. We become like those believers who are already in heaven, having followed Him faithfully all the way: “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death” (Rev. 12:11). Jesus’ triumph over the powers of darkness is reinforced whenever we agree with and declare the benefits of His precious shed blood. But before we fully grab hold of the benefits, we must understand the problem.

Jesus’ blood “speaks better than the blood of Abel” (see Heb. 12:24.) which means it perpetually calls down justice and mercy from the throne of our almighty Father. We read in the fourth chapter of Genesis how Cain and Abel, the sons of Adam and Eve, were together in a field, and Cain killed Abel in a fit of jealousy (see Gen. 4:1-8.) This is what happened next: “The Lord said to Cain, ‘Where is Abel your brother?’ He said, ‘I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?’ And He said, ‘What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground'” (Gen. 4:9-10, ESV). The blood-soaked earth was crying out for recompense, saying, “Do something! Punish this man for murdering his innocent brother!” READ MORE https://www.charismanews.com/opinion/76472-7-supernatural-benefits-of-jesus-blood


7 Supernatural Benefits of Jesus' Blood

In the Scriptures, we can find at least seven benefits concerning what the blood of Jesus has done for us.

We overcome the devil and his works when we testify to what Jesus' blood has accomplished. We become like those believers who are already in heaven, having followed Him faithfully all the way: "They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death" (Rev. 12:11).

Jesus' triumph over the powers of darkness is reinforced whenever we agree with and declare the benefits of His precious shed blood.

But before we fully grab hold of the benefits, we must understand the problem.

Jesus' blood "speaks better than the blood of Abel" (see Heb. 12:24.) which means it perpetually calls down justice and mercy from the throne of our almighty Father. We read in the fourth chapter of Genesis how Cain and Abel, the sons of Adam and Eve, were together in a field, and Cain killed Abel in a fit of jealousy (see Gen. 4:1-8.) This is what happened next:

"The Lord said to Cain, 'Where is Abel your brother?' He said, 'I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?' And He said, 'What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood cries out to Me from the ground'" (Gen. 4:9-10, ESV).

The blood-soaked earth was crying out for recompense, saying, "Do something! Punish this man for murdering his innocent brother!"

The blood cried out because of the following principle, which runs throughout Scripture: "The life of the flesh is in the blood" (Lev. 17:11a). Abel was innocent of wrongdoing, and that fact gave loud voice to the silent, red pool saturating the soil around his fatally injured body.

Sin persisted in rampaging throughout the world. Over the passage of years, Abel's innocent blood continued to cry out in vain wherever human sin did its dirty work. Nothing could permanently take away the stain of sin, certainly not eye-for-eye vengeance or the blood of animal sacrifices instituted under the Law of Moses. Nothing sufficed until Jesus, the Son of God, the Lamb of God, came onto the scene. His bloody crucifixion paid the price for sin once and for all.

Pleading the Blood
As believers, when we stand in the gap in prayer for others, we "plead the blood" of Jesus before God's throne. We cry out for God's mercy, knowing that, because of His blood, "mercy triumphs over judgment" (James 2:13b). When we pray like this, our prayers strike the mark without fail.

We overcome Satan when we testify personally about what the Word of God says the blood of Christ does for us (see Rev. 12:11.) Therefore, "let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary" (Ps. 107:2, NASB). The most powerful plea before God, the devil and the world is the blood of Jesus Christ. Yes, "there's power in the blood!"

Christ's Blood Sprinkled Seven Times
Jesus, the ultimate high priest, shed His blood seven different times to atone for sins for all eternity. Why seven times? Seven is the number of completion. With this in mind, let's review the crucifixion account of the Lamb of God, Christ Jesus.

1. Sweating Blood

The night before the cross may have been even more agonizing for Jesus than actually being crucified. The act of deciding to accept the harrowing torture that would end in death—with full foreknowledge of what it would entail—was so grueling that blood actually exuded from the pores of Jesus's forehead: "He was in such agony of spirit that he broke into a sweat of blood, with great drops falling to the ground as he prayed more and more earnestly" (Luke 22:44, TLB). This is the initial blood-shedding of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Old Testament high priests had to slaughter bulls and goats to obtain the sacrificial blood, but Christ became the sacrificial Lamb, shedding His very own blood to atone for the sin of fallen humanity.

2. Struck and Beaten

Jesus was arrested in the middle of the night and taken forcibly from Gethsemane to the house of the high priest, Caiaphas, where the scribes and elders had assembled. There He was questioned and handled roughly:

"'Behold, you have now heard the blasphemy; what do you think?' They answered, 'He deserves death!' Then they spat in His face and beat Him with their fists [or with rods]; and others slapped Him" (Matthew 26:65b-67, NASB).

Surely, this beating drew blood, although it was nothing like the scourging that was to follow.

3. Beard Plucked Out

In biblical times, if you wanted to express utter abhorrence and dishonor toward a man, you would not only beat him and slap his face, but you would also spit in his face and tear out his beard. This would get ugly, undoubtedly, because as each chunk of beard was ripped out, it would take a piece of the flesh of the man's cheek or chin with it. We believe that this form of dishonor happened to Jesus because the prophet Isaiah foretold it: "I gave My back to those who struck Me, and My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard; I did not hide My face from shame and spitting" (Isa. 50:6, NKJV).

No wonder Isaiah spoke of the Messiah's appearance as being "marred" (Isa. 52:14), or "disfigured" (TLB, NLT) beyond recognition.

4. Back Scourged

To be scourged under the Roman system was a brutal punishment, sometimes resulting in the death of the one who had been whipped: "The punishment of scourging was common among the Jews.... Under the Roman method the culprit was stripped, stretched with cords or thongs on a frame and beaten with rods" or with metal attached to leather thongs.

Do you get the picture? Not only would Jesus's face no longer have been recognizable, but also, His back would have been plowed open. I do not want to imagine this scene! For love's sake, our Lord Jesus endured this fourth profuse blood-shedding.

5. Head Pierced with Crown of Thorns

Jesus's precious blood was shed in a fifth way when the Roman soldiers plaited a mock crown from thorny branches and pressed it into His scalp, causing the blood to run down over His face: "And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him" (Matt. 27:28-29, NKJV). The thorns pierced His skin like sharp needles, penetrating down to the bone of His skull.

6. Crucified

Bleeding profusely, Jesus was forced to carry His own cross through the streets to the site of crucifixion. There, spikes were driven into His wrists and feet to attach Him to the rough wood of the cross (see Matt. 27:35; Mark 15:22-2; Luke 23:32-33, 24:38-40; John 19:18.) This was at least the sixth time that Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb, willingly spilled His blood.

Suffering the cruel death of crucifixion, this one sinless Man was penalized by being executed like a criminal.

7. Side Pierced

Even after His death, Jesus's blood was shed one more time: "One of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out" (John 19:34).

Seven times, the innocent blood of the Lamb of God was shed so that you and I could be freed from our slavery to sin and certain death.

Seven Benefits of Jesus' Shed Blood
In Christ's blood, we receive life that death cannot conquer. Jesus has established a new covenant through His blood, and He intercedes on our behalf to enable us to enter more fully into His blood covenant with us (see Rom. 8:34.)

Once again, the number seven comes into play as Jesus' blood accomplishes at least seven distinct benefits to complete our salvation:

1. Forgiveness. You and I have been forgiven through the blood that Jesus shed when He gave up His life. "Without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness" (Heb. 9:22b, NASB).

2. Cleansing. Our consciences have been washed by the blood of Christ Jesus because we have truly been purified from all sin (see Heb. 9:14.)

3. Redemption. Forgiven and cleansed, we find that we have been redeemed from the clutches of the powers of darkness. "In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace" (Eph. 1:7, NIV).

4. Justification. It is one thing to believe that you are forgiven, cleansed and redeemed, but it is another to believe that it is just as if you had never sinned in the first place. "For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him" (2 Cor. 5:21, NKJV). When I am justified, it is "just as if I'd" never sinned. I am righteous.

5. Sanctification. Now we can take it one step further and declare that we have been set apart for a holy calling—sanctified. Each believer is a special vessel set apart for God. Only Jesus' blood can make this possible. Because of Him, we can walk on the straight and narrow way (see Matt. 7:14.)

6. Peace. Because of Jesus' blood, we can have perfect peace. There will still be plenty of battles to fight, but the outcome has been determined on Calvary: "It was through what his Son did that God cleared a path for everything to come to him—all things in heaven and on earth—for Christ's death on the cross has made peace with God for all by his blood" (Col. 1:20, TLB).

7. Access to the throne. Jesus' blood has made possible your complete reconciliation with the Holy Father in heaven. Now, covered as you are in the blood of Christ, you are like the high priest who was invited to enter the Most Holy Place—without being struck dead. You can enter the most holy throne room of heaven with perfect impunity: "And so, dear brothers, now we may walk right into the very Holy of Holies, where God is, because of the blood of Jesus" (Heb. 10:19, TLB).

In your own life, how have you testified to what the blood of Jesus Christ has accomplished? How have you spoken of it (out loud) and declared with joy the benefits He has won for you? Even when you proclaim it within the privacy of your prayer closet, the enemy gets blinded with the glory of heaven!

All praise, honor and worship to the Lamb of God for what He has done on the cross! The blood of Christ avails for you and for me! Let's each declare with thanksgiving what the blood of the Lamb has accomplished for each of us!
