Divine Eulogy

 

praise-1

When you worship God with, “You are the King of kings”, you are merely verbalizing an obviousness. Does the Bible not say so in Psalms 29:10, 93:1, 145:13, 146:10; Isaiah 6:1, 33:22; Jeremiah 10:10, 17:12; Lamentations 5:19; Ezekiel 1:26, 10:1; Daniel 4:34, 7:9; 1Timothy 1:17, 6:15, 6:16; Hebrews 8:1; Revelation 3:21, 4:5, 4:9, 5:1, 5:6; 5:7, 5:13, 6:16, 7:9-17, 12:5, 17:14, 19:4, 21:5, 22:1-3? 1Timothy 6:15-16 says, “Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; (v.16) Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen”. Need I expatiate on this verse in which God the Father is: a) the only Potentate (dunastēs [doo-nas’-tace]: ‘ruler with great authoritative power of dominance’); b) King of kings & c) Who only hath immortality (no other god of idolatry has a life eternal. In Rev 17:14, “These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful”, this Lamb is Jesus, the Son. And this is a proof of Divine co-equality shared by Both.

For those who sing the declaration of God as, “far above all”, they have not told any lies. Scriptures of Ephesians 4:6, 4:10; Philippians 2:9-11; 1Peter 3:22 and Revelation 5:9-13 authenticate their submission. The mind of God has been explored and mined and the scriptures given above display the nuggets of the truthfulness of their explorations. Ephesians 4:6, “One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all”. Ephesians 4:10, “He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.” Again while the sixth verse is a reference to the First Member of the Godhead, the tenth affirms an Omnipresence: of the Son. You cannot worship the Father in an isolation of the Son and certainly not in the rejection of the energizing power of the Holy Spirit.

ls God truly what you said in the effusion of “He is my all in all”? 1Corinthians 12:6; 15:28; Ephesians 1:23 and Colossians 3:11 vindicate your claims (for your information). 1Corinthians 15:28 says, “And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.”

I hear the saints of Jesus, night and morning, call our God “the Most High”. In the Books of Genesis 14:18; Numbers 24:16; Deuteronomy 32:8; 2Samuel 22:14; Psalms 7:17, 21:7, 92:1; Isaiah 14:14; Daniel 3:26; Hosea 7:16; Mark 5:17; Acts 7:48 and Hebrews 7:1 are the proofs of attestations. What does 2Samuel 22:14 say? “The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice.” We do have Psalm 21:7, as it agrees with, “For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved”.

Most veracious I find it when He is declared as the Saviour. Deuteronomy 32:4, 15; 2Samuel 22:47; Psalms 18:46, 89:26 and 95:1 acquiescently endorse the salvific truism. In the famous Psalm 23 we have, “He restoreth my soul:” in verse three. ‘Restoreth’ is shub (shoob), meaning: ‘to return, turn back or bring back’ (definitely from destruction in hell). Psalm 95:1, “O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation”, points to Jehovah as the Saviour.

As tears of sadness stream down his masculine cheeks he kept believing God with the faithful words of, “You can do all things”, even after waiting for years. Check these scriptures: Numbers 11:23; 1Samuel 14:6; Job 36:5, 42:2; Jeremiah 32:17; Matthew 3:7, 19:26; Luke 1:13, 37; Ephesians 3:20; Philippians 3:21, 4:13 and understand that he is not gone around the bend and that he has been calling on the right Person. Jeremiah 32:17, “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee”.

Honestly speaking, the assertive, “There is none like Him” has scriptural backing in Exodus 15:11; Deuteronomy 3:24; Psalms 86:8, 89:6, 9; Isaiah 40:18, 25; Jeremiah 10:6,7 and Daniel 3:29. This is what Isaiah 40:18 says, “To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?” The word ‘liken’ is damah (daw-maw’): ‘to be like, resemble, compare, to imagine, think’. The Hebrew for ‘likeness’ is demuth (dem-ooth’) BDB Definition: ‘similitude (noun feminine) like, as (adverb)’. Strong’s Definition:resemblance; concretely model, shape; adverbially like’. ‘Compare’ is the Hebrew word ‛arak (aw-rak’): ‘to arrange, set or put or lay in order, set in array’. This verse is a rhetorical question. When you place God side by side all notable entities and phenomena, your good sense of judgment will discover that, with the exception of Jehovah, the God of the Bible, all others are the products of creationism.
