JEHOVAH EL HAKAVOD – LORD GOD OF GLORY

SCRIPTURES: Psalm 29:3 The voice of the LORD [JEHOVAH] is upon the waters: the God of Glory [EL HAKAVOD] thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters. 2 Chronicles 5:14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the Glory of the LORD [EL HAKAVOD] had filled the house of God. Isaiah 35:2c “… they shall see the Glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God” [JEHOVAH EL HAKAVOD]. 

THOUGHT: The word HAKAVOD in Hebrew often represents a great weight, quantity or size. However, it also represents the impressive display and/or distinctive excellence and character of the subject which is being described. It is used to describe man’s accomplishments and kingdoms that excelled or dominated over others. However, when HAKAVOD is used of God’s Glory it refers to His superior excellence over anyone or anything that man has experienced. The Glory of God is also an expression of His Holiness. It is revealed in His attributes, character and nature as we are discussing from day to day, such as: His Self-Existence and Immortality; His Zeal and Love for You; His Omni-presence and Omniscience, His Holiness and Righteousness; His Power, Might and Strength; His Truthfulness and Faithfulness; etc. Any one of these descriptive characteristics of God is glorious in itself. As you continue to understand and consider the character of God, you become more and more aware of the vast extent of His Glory  – even beyond your understanding.

PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, LORD GOD OF GLORY [JEHOVAH EL HAKAVOD]: You are glorious and the magnificence of who You are becomes more apparent to me as I learn more or You. Your Glory is made manifest in Your character. Let Your Glory reign in my life as I become more like You each day. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

ADDITIONAL READING: Ephesians 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: Philippians 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God the Father. Revelation 19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and Glory, and Honour, and Power, unto the Lord our God

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
