Names of God: ★ El Roy : The God Who Sees ( El Ro’ / El Roi )

El Roy (The God Who Sees)

  • Original Word:  ro’iy  רֳאִי
  • Strong’s #H7210
  • Variations: El Ro’ ,  ‘Ēl – Rō’ı̄, 

She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.” – Genesis 16:13 (NIV) – 

Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, “You are God Who Sees”; for she said, “Have I not even here [in the wilderness] remained alive after seeing Him [who sees me with understanding and compassion]?” – Genesis 16:13 (AMP) – 

The all-present God. He sees. He knows. He Loves. He Cares. El Roi sees past present and future.

El Roi means first of all that he sees, than it implies a sense of His presence, and it certainly includes an assurance of His perfect care and provision.

No matter where I am, I am never out of God’s sight.

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness, To deliver their soul from death And to keep them alive in famine. – Psalm 33:18-19 – 

Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the dawn, If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea, Even there Your hand will lead me, And Your right hand will lay hold of me. If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,” Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You. Psalms 139:7-12 (NASB) – 

This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed.  – 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10 (NASB)  – 

In our affliction or hurt we can find healing, as Kay Arthur said, “Where does healing begin? With the recognition of El Roi, the God who sees. … … The first time we meet God in the Word as El Roi we find Him telling Hagar to go back and deal with the situation.

… … After you realize that He sees, you need to know that in His sovereignty He permitted it. 

… … These truths (which we find in God’s name and character) will be your comfort, your healing, your sanity, your hope, your protection against the fiery darts of the accusing liar.

❖ Ephesians 6:10-20

➤   BV#016  ➙  Ephesians 6:10-20   – •  #ArmorOfGod  — 
Ephesians 6:10-20  – • Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

Efésios 6:10-20   (ARC.Pt)   —   No demais, irmãos meus, fortalecei-vos no Senhor e na força do seu poder. Revesti-vos de toda a armadura de Deus, para que possais estar firmes contra as astutas ciladas do diabo; porque não temos que lutar contra carne e sangue, mas, sim, contra os principados, contra as potestades, contra os príncipes das trevas deste século, contra as hostes espirituais da maldade, nos lugares celestiais. Portanto, tomai toda a armadura de Deus, para que possais resistir no dia mau e, havendo feito tudo, ficar firmes. Estai, pois, firmes, tendo cingidos os vossos lombos com a verdade, e vestida a couraça da justiça, e calçados os pés na preparação do evangelho da paz; tomando sobretudo o escudo da fé, com o qual podereis apagar todos os dardos inflamados do maligno. Tomai também o capacete da salvação e a espada do Espírito, que é a palavra de Deus, orando em todo tempo com toda oração e súplica no Espírito e vigiando nisso com toda perseverança e súplica por todos os santos e por mim; para que me seja dada, no abrir da minha boca, a palavra com confiança, para fazer notório o mistério do evangelho, pelo qual sou embaixador em cadeias; para que possa falar dele livremente, como me convém falar. –
 
Efésios   (NVI.Pt)   — Finalmente, fortaleçam-se no Senhor e no seu forte poder. Vistam toda a armadura de Deus, para poderem ficar firmes contra as ciladas do Diabo, pois a nossa luta não é contra seres humanos, mas contra os poderes e autoridades, contra os dominadores deste mundo de trevas, contra as forças espirituais do mal nas regiões celestiais. Por isso, vistam toda a armadura de Deus, para que possam resistir no dia mau e permanecer inabaláveis, depois de terem feito tudo. Assim, mantenham-se firmes, cingindo-se com o cinto da verdade, vestindo a couraça da justiça e tendo os pés calçados com a prontidão do evangelho da paz. Além disso, usem o escudo da fé, com o qual vocês poderão apagar todas as setas inflamadas do Maligno. Usem o capacete da salvação e a espada do Espírito, que é a palavra de Deus. Orem no Espírito em todas as ocasiões, com toda oração e súplica; tendo isso em mente, estejam atentos e perseverem na oração por todos os santos.
Orem também por mim, para que, quando eu falar, seja-me dada a mensagem a fim de que, destemidamente, torne conhecido o mistério do evangelho, pelo qual sou embaixador preso em correntes. Orem para que, permanecendo nele, eu fale com coragem, como me cumpre fazer.   —

The Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-20)

 

Ephesians 6:10-20

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.

Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 

Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist,

with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and

with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

Take the helmet of salvation and

the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
