Dyed4you Art Flag: Nissi

This is our Nissi flag, which features our YHVH Nissi silk. This flag is part of our “Names of God” Dyed4you Art flag line. Each of these flags feature an image of a related Dyed4you silk, the word for which is included as part of the word that goes with this flag. Additionally, these flags are anointed with the same oils as the original silks.

The Hebrew lettering on this flag says: Jehovah Nissi, which means the Lord our Banner. This name comes from Exodus 17:15 (KJV) [emphasis mine] “And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:”

In scripture, the name of God is written with the Hebrew letters: yod-hey-vav-hey. This is sometimes noted in English by the acronym of the letters (YHVH); and sometimes vowels are added to create Jehovah, Yahweh (sometimes abbreviated YHWH), or Yehovah. All of these renditions refer to the one true God, the eternal one, maker of heaven and earth.

Though some people firmly believe in using one version over another, we use whichever one we feel led to given the circumstances. As Jehovah tends to be the most recognized version, that was what we felt led to use on this flag. Just as we see earthly parents and grandparents smile as their familial infants slaughter the pronunciation of their names, so we trust God will extend grace to us. We believe His primary concern is that we are in fact calling on Him. And the fact that we are gives Him much pleasure.

A Prophetic Nugget from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams is connected to this. It’s called “Jehovah Nissi (the Lord our Banner).

Exodus 17:15 (NLT) Moses built an altar there and named it Yahweh-Nissi (which means “the LORD is my banner”).

Beloved, I AM Jehovah Nissi – the Lord your banner, your miracle. And when that day of victory comes, be intentional to take note so that when future battles make you weary, you will remember you serve the victorious One.

Refuse to forget the successes of the past, and use them as memorial stones to build your foundation of faith so you will be unshakable in future. For I AM the same – yesterday, today, and forever – and I AM God.

The name of the silk in this piece is YHVH Nissi (the LORD my banner).

It has been prayed over and anointed with The Scent of Heaven’s Victory oil, which is used as a reminder that our victory is in Him. The scriptures that go with this oil are:

      • 1 Corinthians 15:57 – “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
      • 1 John 5:4 – “For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world— our faith.”

Indeed you are able to do “all things through Christ who strengthens you.” God gives you the authority to fight and win the battle you face.

We pray it blesses you!

NOTE: If you’re wondering why I’ve shared this art flag letter, I explain on my personal blog in a post called God Speaking Through Silk why I began sharing these on my personal blog. Later, I felt led to share some on the Dyed4you Ministries blog as well. So I share some here and some there (you can find the ones there in the silk words and Dyed4you Art Flag category). To find out more about the words we birth – including how they are created and what is typically included – visit our About Our Silk Letters and Art Words page.

 

Silk: YHVH Nissi (The Lord My Banner)

The name of your silk is YHVH Nissi (The LORD My Banner). The colors in it are:

  • Kelly green representing life
  • White representing victory
  • Indigo representing kingdom authority
  • Cobalt Blue representing standing on the Word of God

The scriptures that go with this silk are:

  • Exodus 17:9-15 (ESV) So Moses said to Joshua, “Chose for us men, and go out and fight… Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.” So Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought…while Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. Whenever Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed, and whenever he lowered his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. And Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the sword… And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The Lord Is My Banner.
  • Psalms 60:4 (NLT) But you have raised a banner for those who fear you– a rallying point in the face of attack.
  • Isaiah 59:19 (KJV) When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.

Praise (Psalm 149)

“Open the Gates with Praise” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

This is a series of Prophetic Nuggets from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams that are connected by scripture / theme. It is a series of three Prophetic Nuggets based on Psalm 149:4-6 (TPT):

For he enjoys his faithful lovers. He adorns the humble with his beauty and he loves to give them the victory. His godly lovers triumph in the glory of God, and their joyful praises will rise even while others sleep. God’s high and holy praises fill their mouths, for their shouted praises are their weapons of war!

The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Humble and Yielded.”

Psalm 149:4 (TPT) For he enjoys his faithful lovers. He adorns the humble with his beauty and he loves to give them the victory.

Beloved, I delight to bring victory to those who rejoice in Me. It gives Me immense pleasure to bestow such blessings on those who have held nothing back. Love Me lavishly, sweet one, and without agenda – simply love because I loved you first. 

Focus your heart on Me, and leave the battle plans to Me. Your role is humility – eyes and heart fixed on Me; My role is to be God and all that encompasses including knowing what is best for My children and leading them in that path as they yield. I have you, beloved. 

The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Praises Rise.”

Psalm 149:5 (TPT) His godly lovers triumph in the glory of God, and their joyful praises will rise even while others sleep.

Beloved, let your praises rise. Let them rise both in triumph and in the expectation of it. Let it rise at all times. Your steadfast, joyful praise is an audible banner lifted high – a clear reminder to all of Who I AM: I AM God, the Lord of Hosts, the Mighty One, and I reign. 

Refuse to be silent. Refuse to be distracted. Let your joyful praise come forth like refreshing waters encouraging yourself and all those around you. You know who you are because you know Who I AM. Walk boldly in your identity as a child of Mine. 

The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Steadfast Praise.”

Psalm 149:6 (TPT) God’s high and holy praises fill their mouths, for their shouted praises are their weapons of war!

Beloved, as your praises rise, things begin to shift. As your praises rise, mountains begin to move. Just as a drip of water can change the face of a rock over time, never underestimate the power of your steadfast praise. 

Stay equipped. Hide the word in your heart and raise a banner or lift your voice high or dance before Me, beloved, but do something. Allow the fruit of your faith to pour forth from your heart. 

Your praise changes things. It shifts the atmosphere. It is powerful because I inhabit the praises of My people and I AM mighty beyond expectation or description. So be steadfast in your praise. 

The Tsunami

by Jessica Smith Art

In a dream, I saw a tsunami coming from afar. It was a monstrous wall of water that would bring devastation. The sight of it was dreadful. As it approached, fear increased, and I anticipated the blow with anxiety and uncertainty. But when it came upon me I was suddenly filled with the Holy Spirit. And instead of the massive wave overtaking me, I lept up on it and ran up it walking on water.  Continue reading “The Tsunami”

His Banner Over Me is Love

{Dream} A tall lean woman with long brown hair down her back fighting against a whipping wind to erect a banner flag on a make shift pole out of a crooked long piece of wood. The banner has the colors of purple and turquoise. There is a tree in the middle that with a closer look are made out of peacock feathers. The phrase running through my head as she is raising this banner is “His Banner Over Me is Love.” The environment gives the sense of a war torn land. It’s dark with the wind whipping like there is a storm yet there is almost a glow of that purple and turquoise that are being reflected from the flag.  Continue reading “His Banner Over Me is Love”

The Two Faces of Victory

I’ve always been intrigued by the two animals that symbolize our mighty Savior—the lion and the lamb. As far as Messianic references go, these two animals seem like they couldn’t be more different from one another. One is the fierce king of the jungle, while the other is the docile and innocent vessel of atonement. While the lion and the lamb may seem very different, I believe they perfectly represent the two faces of victory in the Kingdom of Heaven—the two faces of our Messiah. Christ is both suffering servant and conquering king.

Like the Jews of the first century, modern believers look with hope for the Son of David, the one who will set up a godly kingdom which will fill the whole earth. Many of us groan within to see the kingdom of darkness fully expelled by our mighty Warrior King. If His ancestor King David foreshadowed Christ’s second coming, what power can withstand Him when the God of the Universe backs Him?

My Right Hand

Psalm 44:3 (VOICE) They did not win the land with their swords. It wasn’t their strength that won them victory. It was Your strength —Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your presence that gave them success, for You loved them.

Beloved, nothing is too hard for Me. Victory is not won by your own strength, but by your ability to rest in Me and Mine. I AM the Lord victorious. I AM El Gibbor, the mighty God. Hide in the shadow of My wing. 

Run to Me, your strong tower. I AM your refuge of strength – a very present help in times of trouble, and a place of refreshing in the times of plenty. Cling to Me and trust My right hand to protect and provide. 

The Joy of Eternal Life

Psalm 16:11 (NKJV) You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Beloved, know that I have given you fullness of joy because I have granted you complete access to My Presence. Resist the urge to become discouraged when the earthly realm shifts your focus and you feel out of alignment with Me. Simply stop, take a breath, and seek Me. Look to the Cross and remember that the way has been paved back into the Garden of My Presence. Your old life is gone and I have made you new. The newness of life that you now have is eternal and lived by faith, and daily I call you to discover what that means. Continue reading “The Joy of Eternal Life”
