Who is Yehovah-Shammah and what does this name mean to us?

“It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the city from that day shall be, The LORD is there.” Ezekiel 48:35 (KJV)

Yĕhovah shammah, pronounced yeh hō vä' shäm' mä, simply means THE LORD IS THERE.

This name is mentioned in only one place in the Hebrew concordance of the KJV of the Holy Bible. It is a symbolic name for Jerusalem. It is a combination of the name YEHOVAH and the Hebrew word SHAMMAH, which is derived from the Hebrew word SHAM. SHAM has its roots in the Hebrew word ASHER and literally refers to ‘there’ in that place, in that time and in that thing.

In the scripture above Yehovah is there in Jerusalem; however, if you are born-again in spirit then Yehovah is there in you too. Jesus said:

“I and [my] father are one.” John 10:30 (KJV)

“At that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.” John 14:20 (KJV)

Since Jesus and Yehovah are one, and since Jesus is in the Father and we are in Jesus, and since Jesus is in us then God is in us as well as around us. This is a wonderful depiction of the name Yĕhovah shammah. The LORD is there.

Thank God for Jesus. Praises Father!
