Dearly Beloved Church and Saints of The Most High GOD,
We come together this day to praise the Holy Most High Name of our Almighty GOD, El Shaddai. He is our Strength. He is our Sword. He is our Shield and Buckler. He is our Strong Tower. He is our Fortress. He is our Refuge. He is our Habitation. He is our Deliverer. He is our Rock. He is our Salvation: The Horn of our Salvation and the Hope of our Salvation (2 Samuel 22, Psalm 18). He is our Savior. He is The Father of The LORD Jesus Christ our Messiah, Who Is The Image of The Invisible GOD (2 Corinthians 4:4, Colossians 1:5). In the last letter we illuminated the words of our LORD Jesus Christ that He is the Door and the Way and no-one comes to the Father except through the Son. This foundational teaching helps us to understand that we must, as His chosen Bride, have an intimate relationship with Him and worship Him to get to the Father! Therefore we must glorify the Name of Jesus, for at His Name every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that He is LORD and GOD (Philippians 2:10-11). This is where we need to begin to get to know Who Jesus is in presence and in being, to know Who He is to us. When we begin to call upon His many names, as we spoke of beforehand, we begin to turn keys and unlock doors which no man can open nor shut except for Him. This is how we take dominion and authority in His Name over the Oppressor (satan). When we declare the righteousness and the glory of The Most High King of Heaven and Earth in His magnificent awe and wonder and presence over our lives and within us, we wage war against satan and scatter his assignments and wicked desires over us. When we are under attack, we need to fight back by calling upon the Name of The LORD, for all who call upon the Name of The LORD shall be saved and delivered (Romans 10:13).
Why is this important when in prayer, praise, and worship? These three form the three-fold cord! Calling upon the Name of The LORD in the three-fold cord which is not easily broken (Ecclesiastes 4:12) is a declaration of His omniscience as Sovereign Supreme Most High Throne over all of heaven and of earth, even over satan and his principalities and dark thrones of wickedness seated in high places. We must remember when entering in that we too are also seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus our LORD and that His Throne is the absolute Most High Throne! We go into prayer and praise to worship GOD and to wage war against the enemy satan: WE WARSHIP. When we praise the Name of The LORD by calling upon His many names, it reminds us of Who He is and what He has done for us which will stir up the love in our hearts for Him and it activates the movement of His Holy Spirit around us and within us. It also sends the enemy running! There are few things satan hates more than the praise and worship of the Almighty GOD and he will do anything to interrupt it or to cut it off completely, for it is through warship that we enter into the presence of The LORD and bring heaven down to earth; satan cannot stand the fact that he is eternally damned and that he fell from glory and was stripped of nearly all of his titles which include leading the angels who were created specifically to praise GOD into worship of Him. He cannot stand the truth of it all, that we as the creation that he refused to bow down to and serve as ordered by The Almighty hence the reason for his fall due to his pride, that we can not only enter into the presence of The Holy LORD in worship but we are accepted by Him and invited by Him to come and enter in before Him sitting upon His Throne and are granted the keys to the kingdom and all power and dominion over all: even over satan himself! So we can see exactly why true holy worship and praise are hindered or prohibited in many areas of this world and made fun of and blasphemed on such a high level, because this three-fold cord is our most offensive and defensive weapon against the enemy.
Psalm 149 instructs us that we are to praise The LORD for these very reasons, even straight-up saying that the high praises of GOD are to be in our mouths in song acting as a two-edged sword in our hands to execute vengeance and punishments upon the enemy and to bind him and his thrones of wicked principalities. It reads as follows: “Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints. Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King. Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the Lord.” LET EVERYTHING THAT HAS BREATH PRAISE THE LORD!
Jesus Christ is King of Kings and LORD of LORDS (Rev. 17:14, 19:16, 1 Tim. 6:15). He is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End (Rev. 22:13). He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6, Acts 9:2). He is the Light of the world (John 8:12). He is the Son of GOD; the Lamb of GOD (John 1:29, 36, 1 Pet. 1:19, Rev. 5:6-12, 7:17). He is the Chief Cornerstone of the Church (Ephesians 2:20, 1 Peter 2:6, Isaiah 28:16). He is the Bright Morning Star and the Lily of the Valley (Rev. 22:16). He is the Rose of Sharon. He is the Bread of Life and the Living Waters (John 6:32-35, John 4:10, 7:38). He is our Bridegroom and the Lover of our Soul (Matthew 9:15, John 3:29). He is the Keeper of our Heart, for He is the Door (John 10:9). He is the Good Shepard. He is Emmanuel the Only Begotten GOD (Matthew 1:23, Isaiah 7:14, 8:8). Jesus is our Eternal Father (Isaiah 9:6). He is GOD (John 1:1, 14-18, Romans 9:5, Hebrews 1:8). Our LORD Jesus Christ is our Hope and the King of Glory; He is the Head of the Church (Ephesians 5:23); He is Judge and Ruler (John 5:22-23, Acts 10:42). He is the Holy One, our High Priest (Hebrews 3:1-2, Mark 1:24, Acts 2:27, 3:14). He is The Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Rev. 5:5). He is the Man of Sorrows (Isaiah 53:3). He is our Master and Teacher (Matthew 8:19). Jesus is the Messenger of the Covenant and Messiah (Malachi 3:1, Daniel 9:25, John 1:41, 4:25). He is the Prince of Peace and Shiloh (Isaiah 9:6, Genesis 49:10). He is the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25). He is the True Vine (John 15:1). Jesus Christ IS the Wisdom of GOD (1 Corinthians 1:24, 30). He is The Word of GOD (John 1:1, 14). Jesus has GOD’s Name because He IS GOD; YAHWEH means “He Who Is”. It expresses the idea that only GOD has self-existent being, and Christ possesses this Name: I AM, Who is and Who was and Who is to come (Mark 6:50, Luke 21:8, John 8:24, 28, 58, Rev. 4:8). There are more names of GOD Who is Jesus Christ, the same GOD yesterday, today, and forever; this is an assembly of most of His Names which because of all that we have unveiled about warship of The One True GOD are needed; to be made known and taken into our mind, heart, soul, and spirit as we lead on to entering into His presence to pray unto Him, to praise Him, and to worship Him. The next time you enter in before the Throne of mercy and grace, we encourage you to bring these names in with you and begin to call upon Him in this way and learn what His many names mean by reading the scripture context associated to each specific Name. King Jesus wants us to know what a mighty GOD we serve and exactly Who He IS! He is our ever-present help in our times of trouble (Psalm 46:1).
In the next few letters, we will touch on more scriptures that shall open the floodgates of heaven by entering into the presence of the Almighty GOD and into His gates with thanksgiving and praise. For He is worthy of all of our praise and worship, forever and ever, Amen.
Be encouraged in Jesus’ Name!
“Now The LORD of peace Himself give you peace always by all means. The LORD be with you all.” (2 Thessalonians 3:16). Keep us in Prayer that the advancing of His glorious Kingdom comes through us as we wait for His powerful day of arrival. God Bless you in the mighty and powerful name of Jesus Christ The LORD!
