Jesus Being Jehovah the Savior

Matt 1:20 …Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife, for that which has been begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit. (21) And she will bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins. 
Rom 10:13 For “whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”


The wonderful One who was born in this wonderful way is Jehovah. And He is not only Jehovah–He is Jehovah with something else. The name Jesus means “Jehovah the Savior” or “the salvation of Jehovah.” This wonderful Person is the very salvation which Jehovah renders people. He Himself is salvation. Because Jehovah Himself becomes salvation, He is the Savior.

Do not think that when we call Jesus we are just calling the name of a man. Jesus is not simply a man; He is Jehovah our salvation, Jehovah our Savior. This is simple, yet profound. When you call on Jesus, the whole universe realizes that you are calling on Jehovah as your Savior, Jehovah as your salvation.

The Jews believe in Jehovah, but not in Jesus. In a sense, they have Jehovah, but they do not have salvation or the Savior. We have more than the Jews have, for we have Jehovah the Savior, Jehovah our salvation.

Whoever calls on the name of Jesus will be saved. If you touch the name of Jesus, you will be touched by Him. When we preach the gospel, it is good to help people call on Jesus. As long as they call on Jesus, something will happen. Jesus is a wonderful name because Jesus is Jehovah.
