JEHOVAH MELEK KABOD – LORD AND KING OF GLORY

SCRIPTURES: Psalms 24:7-10 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the KING OF GLORY [MELEK KABOD] shall come in. 8 Who is this KING OF GLORY [MELEK KABOD]? The LORD [JEHOVAH] strong and mighty, the LORD [JEHOVAH] mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

THOUGHT: The word GLORY [KABOD] has to do with something or someone deserving of respect, praise and honor. It is used in the recognition of the worthiness and fame, and/or the splendor and majesty of a person or an object. It is also used of wealth. This term is most often used of the LORD God Himself. Moses asked to be shown God’s Glory (Exodus 33:18), while the Psalmist blessed His Glorious Name and deemed that the whole earth should be full of His Glory (Psalm 72:19). The prophet Ezekiel fell on his face to worship when he saw God’s Glory on display before him (Ezekiel 1:28). The LORD is the KING OF GLORY which means that He is the One who is worthy, who has the majesty and splendor and should be worshipped as your God your Creator and your Redeemer.

PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father, JEHOVAH MELEK KABOD – LORD AND KING OF GLORY: You are worthy of my praise and worship because You created me and have kept me. You also are my Redeemer and Savior and You have been faithful all through the years. Your majesty and might are on display from day to day in the heavens and the earth and also in my life. You are the Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, Provider, Sanctifier and much, much more. GLORY to Your Name. I worship and praise You for all You have been and all You are. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

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.
