The Lord reigns;
Let the earth rejoice;
Let the multitude of isles be glad!
2 Clouds and darkness surround Him;
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
3 A fire goes before Him,
And burns up His enemies round about.
4 His lightnings light the world;
The earth sees and trembles.
5 The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declare His righteousness,
And all the peoples see His glory.
7 Let all be put to shame who serve carved images,
Who boast of idols.
Worship Him, all you gods.
8 Zion hears and is glad,
And the daughters of Judah rejoice
Because of Your judgments, O Lord.
9 For You, Lord, are most high above all the earth;
You are exalted far above all gods.
Ps 83:18 (KJV)
Isa. 12:1-4 (KJV)
And in that day thou shalt say, O Lord, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.
2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.
Ex. 6:1-3 (KJV)
Then the Lord said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the Lord:
3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name Jehovah was I not known to them.
Gen. 22:3-14 (KJV)
3 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.
4 Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place afar off.
5 And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass; and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you.
6 And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son; and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife; and they went both of them together.
7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
11 And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.

A man, he is a king of all kings capital k over the small k, and he is the Lord of all lords, a man. And that goes well with my scripture and my title this morning. At an I add an I is the hebrew word for lord. I deny lord. Going to read from psalms chapter 97. verse one through 9. Hear the word of the Lord. The Lord rains. Let the earth rejoice. Let them all the tune of. I’ll be glad clouds in darkness around him, righteousness and justice, or the foundation of his throne. A fire goes before him, and burns up his enemies round about his lightnings light the world. The earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax. At the presence of the Lord and the presence at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. So he is the Lord of the whole earth. The heavens declare his righteousness and all the people sees his glory. That all be put, the shame who serve carved images, who boast of idols, worshipped him. All you gods zion hears, and his glad and the daughters of judah rejoiced because of your judgments. Oh lord, for you, lord, are most high above all the earth, your exalted far above all gods. A man he is lord. above all the earth, all gods, king of kings, lord of lords, men. They got add his blessings to the hearing and the rating of his holy word. Let us pray grace of 70 father. We give you praise and glory and honor because you are worthy father. We do bout down father. We know that kings will later crowns before you because you are lord because you are the god of creation. father, you made it all we belong to you father, we thank you. We thank you that your love is so tremendous for us that your son jesus christ, was allowed to come to the service and die for our sins. father, we just thank you that that is a demonstration of your love and father. I just pray that your spirit would be in his place. father fill us with your love, fill us with your presence and follow god that we might be that light unto the world. father, there are so many that need to hear that good news. The good news that you love them while that’s the most important thing, they hear that you love them. father, may we be faithful to proclaim that father. Just pray your presence here today that you are hearts of you open to what you have force for your manifest glory. father. We ask it in jesus name. amen. I just added this in. There wasn’t this one part of the scripture just spoke to me this morning. As I was reading this righteousness and justice or the foundation of his throne, we all know what a foundation is. When you build a house, you have to have a strong foundation. A foundation is that the footer that you have to dig down deep, you have to get the solid ground. You cannot build upon sinking, saying you cannot build if it’s wet and think he, you got to dig down. You get to solid ground and you cannot skimp on the foundation. If you have the, if you’re going to lay blocks and build a house, you need a footer about 3 foot wide, and it has to be about at least $910.00, or more inches deep. It should be reinforced with steel release fiberglass, because if you build upon an inferior foundation, what is going to happen? It may look good for a while, but what’s going to happen to that house is going to crack. It’s going to settle. It will not stand the test of time. righteousness and justice or the foundation of his throne. god’s throne is built upon it. You better believe it is strong, but righteousness and justice. He is righteous. And he is also just he will, all of god’s justice is fair. No one will be on justly judge. Because his foundation is built upon it, his throne is built upon it. I mean, righteousness and justice To add and I and the Lord. Some people might be quick to say that I deny, as a very common name of god, found the most often in the old testament. And that may be true. But at night is not only used as a reference to the Lord our god the word ad and I simply is a word for lord small l and capital L. lord, lord is defined as someone or something having power, authority or influence. It is a ruler or a master. So rather than a proper name for god, add an I simply a term of respect. That is keeping with english english definition of the usage of the word lord. The name comes from the singular word add on in it translates to master or roller, but it also contains the concept of ownership. So the word lord then is often used to refer to those in authority over someone else, david returned referred to soul as lord. And 1st, samuel 248, says david also arose afterwards went out of the cave and called out to saul, saying, my lord the king. And was all look behind him. David stooped with his face to the earth and bowed down. So he called him lord some of the life as followers referred to him as lord and 2nd kings to 19 says then the men of the city said to elijah, please notice the situation of the city as pleasant as my lord seeds. But a water is bad and the ground baron The cultural background of the word add on is associated with humanity. As you can see, they call other people lord and it deals with masters who own slaves. But there’s also another side of that. There is responsibility for the care and the well being of that which is and so that master was responsible for the well being in the care of that property videos which oftentimes was other individuals, other human beings, right there were masters and slays. There are still those that own people today, But when god is referred to as the plural ad and I he is referenced as the owner. He is the owner for scripture verse 9 said, for you lord, are most high above all the earth. You are exalted above all gods. My friends belongs to God. The earth belongs to God. He created it. As we’ve learned in the past couple weeks, he is creator god. And since god is absolute ruler, that god is the absolute owner or response to him as an I should be that of surrender and submission That should be our response to God as that. And I surrender and submission to his authority, not about our own way, but it’s about his way. The problem today is many christians only want god to open up that window of blessings and bless them all, pour out your blessings upon me and my family lord. We want our will to be done and not his but god wants us to willingly surrender before him to allow him to call the shots in our lives. And not we ourselves. Are we willing to do that? Allow him to make the decisions for us. Allow him to rightfully own us is one thing to say, oh God owns it all. But it’s another think the walk to the bathroom, looking at the mirrors, they got on this own this own this mine and own this heart because he will care for protect and providing guide that which he owns. Do you truly trust him with that? That he’s going to provide and care for that which he owns, which is us. Many do not all acknowledge his ownership, but he does own us. We fully surrender. So since at an ice considered a term of respect instead of a proper personal name of god, what then is his personal name? There is a connection between god’s proper name and an I. Though there was a point in jewish history where they decided that god was so holy and God is that god was so holy that they will not even speak his name. And that is one reason they come up with I don’t I lord, instead of coning by his proper name, because he’s that holy to hallway stephen, speak his name. And I respect that reverence, but they have for god lord, proper name is A combination of 4 letters for capital letters. Why a W H. We pronounce it your way. It is considered the proper name for god. It is the English translation that we find in the bible. Your way is to distinguish ad and I as the Lord They name your way though has evolved through time through changes and tradition through changes and translation. If they have come up with a word that many of us know as jehovah. ja way jehovah is really the same thing. We hear preachers use it in sermons. We sing it during hymns and songs. There is a song from god, me. Oh thou, great. jehovah says, guide me. Oh God, great jehovah pilgrim through this barren land, i am weak, but our mighty hold me with my powerful hand. And there’s one of my personal favorites from the days will be larger. There is no god, like jehovah. I love that song. There’s no god like jehovah songs the $83.00 a king. I have a lot of king james version scripture today. Says that men may know that thou, whose name alone is jehovah art most high over all the earth. She had to go to the king james, because it actually has jehovah, the newer version’s, change it to lord. But jehovah and isaiah 121 through 4, also king james, and in that day thou shall say, oh lord, I will praise thee, though thou was angry with me, thy anger is turned away and our comfort this may behold, god is my cell of asian. I will trust and not be afraid. For the Lord, jehovah is my strength and my song. He also is become my salvation. Therefore, with joy, shall you draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day, shall you say praise the Lord called upon his name. declare his doings among the people. Make mention that his name is exalted. The name jehovah is exalted. And in exodus chapter 6, verse one through 3. Then the Lord said unto moses, thou shalt thou see what I will do to pharaoh, for with a strong hand, shall he let them go. And with a strong hand, shall he drive them out of his land. And God spoke to moses and said unto him, I am the Lord. And I appeared unto abraham isaac, and unto jacob by the name of god almighty. But my name jehovah was not known to them. My name, god say my name jehovah was not made known to them. Most christians recognize the name jehovah. But you know, there’s been much debate about whether jehovah is a correct pronounciation or the proper name for god, which is capital y A W y. You know, some say that there was no true j sound for the ancient hebrew. In a debate, whether your way should be pronounced with 3 syllables, and or 2 syllables. worse bows should be borrowed from l. him or out and I it really gets all confusing, doesn’t it? When you try to figure it all out. Well my saying it, right. I mean even to beg the name of jesus. So we say jesus are. So we say yes you are My friends, here’s what I believe about it. I think god knows the intent of our heart. Can you agree with? No, no. God knows the intent of our ours. God knows it. When you say jehovah, you are speaking of him. He knows if you say your way, whether you are speaking of him because he knows the heart. He knows when we was in our mother’s womb, he knows the intent. He knows if we are worshipping him or if we are not worshipping him. So whether we call in jehovah your way capital y A W H, Or lord, or add an I or l. He knows whether we are worshiping him. He knows our hearts And jehovah like l, which I have spoke of the last couple. sabbath often has contrast words attached to it to defined a different aspects of god. jehovah gyro means the Lord our provider have a scripture the want to share. I know that most are familiar with this. genesis chapter 22 and it’s a little bit of a loan, scripture versus 3 through 14. And abraham rose up early in the morning, saddled his ass and took 2 of his young men with him and isaac his son, and claimed the wood for the burnt offering and rose up and went unto the place in which god had told him. Then on the 3rd day, 3 days journey on the 3rd day, abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place so far off. And abraham said unto his young men, abide you here with the ass, and I and the lad will go yonder and worship and come again to you. And abraham took the word of the burnt offering and laid it upon isaac, his son. And he took the fire in his saying and a knife, and they went both of them together. And isaac spake unto his father and said father. And he said here I am my son. And he said, behold the fire in the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering? An abraham said my son, god will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering. So they both. So they went both of them together and they came to the place what god had told him of. And abraham build an altar there and they wouldn’t order and bound his son and weighed him upon the altar upon the wood. And abraham stretched forth his hand and took the knife to slay his son in an angel, the Lord called to him out of heaven and said abraham abraham. And he said, here am I. And he said, lay not thy hand upon the lad. Neither do anything onto him for I know that thou fears god, seeing that I was not withheld by son. The only son from me neighbour had lifted up his eyes and looked at behold behind him, a ram card and a ticket by his horns. And abraham went and took the ram and offered him up as a burnt offering instead of his son, neighbour, and called the name of that place. jehovah gyro, as it is said to this day in amount of the Lord it shall be seen What an amazing story of faith was made an example of faith abraham tow his young man. I am the lad. We’ll go yonder and we will come back to you. He knew he believed he knew the god was sending the sacrifice his son. But he believed that god could raise him from the dead if he were to sacrifice and that saw that they waited so many years to receive. We know that sir, was baron, god found we bless them, opened her womb, gave my son, and now god says, go and sacrifice your son to me. I cannot even imagine that. But abraham was faithful. He was faithful. You imagine binding your own child placing them upon that pile of wood to sacrifice to God. That is faith. That is trust God will provide. abraham knew that god would provide jehovah gyro Now god knew that abraham feared him. Are we willing to surrender fully that fully? unto god. As abraham did, I found a list of 12 jehovah, names of our god and savior. The 1st are ready to share. jehovah gyro. Next is jehovah. rafa that is the Lord r healer. And if you don’t want to bother writing them down, there’s copies up here. So you don’t have to write them down if you’d like them. jehovah, rafa is the Lord our healer. exit is 1526. jehovah niecy is a lord or banner exit of $1715.00 jehovah. Roy is the Lord r shepherd. We know how a shepherd watch out for his sheep. He is our shepherd. He will watch out for us and protect us. He will lead us to that good pasture, jehovah shalom. We know what shallow means, the Lord our peace judges. 624. And when I think of peace and as we already pray for all that situation going on and out again. And how could they have peace without knowing the Lord? lord, may your peace be upon this world. upon all the peoples of this world, jehovah sharma is the Lord. Our presence is in your 4835. I want to read that scripture all the way around, shall be $18000.00 cubits. And the name of the city from that day shall be the Lord is here. Hi louis of the Lord our presence friends, the Lord is here. He said his holy spirit, the Lord is here today. jehovah sharma is here with us, the Lord our presence, a man. He will never leave us nor forsake us, jehovah. Let’s see how to do my best when this pronunciation sees gonnu is the Lord our righteousness. Get the paper and look at and pronounce it the best you can to the Lord our righteousness. He is our righteousness. It is by his righteousness, by which we are say, praise god, that thrown is founded upon righteousness his righteousness, not our own. Because that was founded on our righteousness, it would have already sunk many centuries ago, but is founded on his righteousness and it is applied to us. How do you jehovah, so both is the Lord of host. First, samuel, 13, jehovah, like a dish is a lord r sanctify or leviticus 20 verse, said he sanctify us, cleanses us from all unrighteousness. jehovah, sure I the Lord our strength. saw 1914 jehovah supply is the Lord our rock. Jesus as a rock. That the church is found upon that cornerstone. psalms 18 to jehovah go l is the Lord our redeemer. There’s probably more but the Lord are redeemer. It just shows it is as I said at the beginning of this are all and all Through other adaptations. And now the transitions of all the different names of god Isn’t it’s simply wonderful that god wants us to know his proper name that god wants us to know him personally. John 17 verse 3 Says and this is eternal life that you may that they may know you jesus. Speaking of the father that they may know you the only true god and jesus christ whom you have sent my friends. It’s personal. He’s given us his name. He wants us to know him personally, could you imagine trying to have a close relationship with someone that you didn’t know the name of a you may imagine you meet someone there enough. You’d like it. So it’s a nice person. We should be friends. Yeah, let’s do that. Let’s be friends. Ok, what’s your name? So I can call you why tell you my name? Why he called me on the phone. Hello. This own so that I met the other day. Come on. Think about it. It be ridiculous, right? You’re not going to be close friends, have a personal relationship with someone you do not even know their name. God wants us to know him in an infinite way. He wants us to know his name, because it shows us who he is and how great and magnificent his love is. For each and every one of us. And God must be revered. above all, above all names, the name above all names, king of all kings, lord of lords, we must treat his name with the highest respect. I understand while they was afraid to speak it because he is a holy god, we must treat respect. Do not use his name in vain. That’s why they would not speak it. They was afraid that they would use his name in vain. respect him because he is worthy, worthy of all respect. But you know, with all the different names of god, I don’t know about any of you, but I am so grateful that we can calling father That we can calling father that we are sons and daughters. I can help, but that just makes me motional to think about it that we can call him father. And I know that there’s a lot of fathers on this earth that they’re not the kind of fathers they should be. But the kind of father that they should be is the father of love and care for their children. Their respects their children and loves are children, care for them, provide for them. That’s the kind of father or father is and we should represent him to our children. I found a story. There is a Spanish story, my father and son, who had become a strange with one another. It’s got so bad that the son ran away. And the father sent off the try to find his son, bringing back in the search for him for months and months and months to no avail. finally in a last desperate of their desperate effort to find his son, the father put an ad in the madrid newspaper and simply read. dear paco, meet me in front of this newspaper office at noon on Saturday. All is forgiven. I love you. Your father. On Saturday, $800.00 paco showed up looking for forgiveness and love from the father. My friend we’re all a bunch of pay goes Yes. We’re all a bunch of pay goes and need forgiveness From our father who is in heaven. And it’s not just a newspaper ad, it says holy word, it declares his great love for us. He wants to forgive us 1st john, one, a through 10 says if we say that we have no sin, we have deceived ourselves. And the truth is not in US, but if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not said we make him a liar and his word is not in US, but my friends he wants to forgive us. But we have to show up like paco did like all those papers did. Right. We have to show up and seek the father’s forgiveness we have to want But our father wants to forgive us. Out and I jehovah l. Our father, my father and you were father. Once to forgive us, he wants us to receive that amazing love that he has for us. If there’s anyone watching, i’m pretty sure everyone hears believe blaze on the Lord and does anyone watching the does not have that personal relationship with a god of have an I encourage you to do so poor out your heart and to him, ask him to forgive you and God will forgive, you took him into your heart presence. He is present with us. His spirit draws us unto himself, thanking for that you can’t get away from him. You may run, but he keeps thinking. He keeps thinking. God loves you, wants you to just surrender him a man.
