He is seated above all creation.
The Lord is God above all other gods—El Elyon. He is The Only True Living God—Elohim. He is The Creator of all things seen and unseen. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is Lord of lords and King of kings. There’s no one that compares to Jehovah: He has all Power, Majesty, Glory, Wisdom, Honor, Righteousness and Truth. He is Holy and Just. He is the beginning and the end of all creation; The Alpha and Omega. He is our God, Heavenly Father, Redeemer, Judge, Savior, and Rock of Strength.
10 Be still, and know that I Am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the Earth! 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah (Psalm 46)
God commands us to be still before His Presence. He commands us to take a moment, find a quiet place, and just be still before Him. He wants us to focus our attention on Him and acknowledge Him to be God, in spite of all that is going on around us. He declares that He is exalted above every esteemed person or thing we know on the Earth. God affirms that He will be exalted by all the inhabitants of the Earth. So whether we do so now or not, we will all eventually exalt Him. He reminds everyone that He is God. He may seem distant, silent, or inscrutable, but He is still God.
The Lord of hosts is our refuge. Those who know Him find their refuge and rest in Him. Be still, don’t fret nor fear, He is God and has full command of all circumstances. Be still; put aside all distractions and put your hope in Him. Exalt God in quietness, or exalt Him with the highest praise, declare Him your God. Find rest in God Who is exalted above everything. Take some time each day to be still before God.
God, Who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, Whom He has appointed heir of all things, through Whom also He made the worlds. 3 Who being the brightness of His Glory and the express Image of His Person, and upholding all things by the Word of His Power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of The Majesty on High, 4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more Excellent Name than they (Hebrews 1).
The Son of God is The Creator of all the worlds—the Heavens, Earth, seas, galaxies and all their powers. He upholds all of it by His Power. He is the spitting Image of God and His Glory. The Lord Jesus Christ came as God in the human form—The Son of Man born of The Holy Spirit. He took upon Himself the sins of the world, and sanctified those who exchanged their lives for His Life in them. His Name is above all other names; He has an Excellent Name.
6 For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His Name will be called: Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His Government and Peace there will be no end. Upon the throne of David and over His Kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice, from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of The Lord of hosts will perform this (Isaiah 9).
Only Christ could do what no one else could: He died for all mankind so that we would be a new creation, made in His Likeness, through His Spirit in us. In these last days, God is speaking to us through His Son. The Lord Jesus Christ is Lord above all, and all creation is sustained by Him. He is not an angel, He is The Lord Jesus Christ, He is God. Give your life to Christ, and you will be kept by His Power. Take heed to His Spirit, and be acquainted with The One who seats highly exalted above all kingdoms.
“Blessed are You, Lord God of Israel, our Father, forever and ever. 11 Yours, O Lord, is the Greatness, the Power and the Glory, the Victory and the Majesty. For all that is in Heaven and in Earth is Yours; Yours is the Kingdom, O Lord, and You are exalted as Head over all. 12 Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your Hand is Power and Might; In Your Hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. 13 Now therefore, our God, we thank You and praise Your Glorious Name (1 Chronicles 29).”
It is God’s prerogative to give honor, riches and greatness to those He chooses. It is in His Hands to bless as He chooses. He reigns over all the kingdoms of the universe. Our Father’s Greatness is our victory and strength. We ought to praise God and thank Him for all that He lavishly gives us everyday. He never fails to do as He pleases. He will not fail His children. He determines our future and success. Praise His Glorious Name because you are called by His Name; you belong to Him. We are held in His Hand by His Might. Our Father enfolds us with His Greatness.
17 His Name shall endure forever; His Name shall continue as long as the sun. And men shall be blessed in Him. All nations shall call Him blessed. 18 Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, Who only does wondrous things! 19 And blessed be His Glorious Name forever! And let the whole earth be filled with His Glory. Amen and Amen (Psalms 72).
God’s Name shall endure forever; names of legends, trail blazers or great influencers will not be remembered or evoked forever. We call upon His Name, Jesus Christ—The Name that is above all other names—when we pray, because we don’t just pray to any god. Those who want to be truly blessed are blessed in Him. He is no respecter of persons; all nations can call Him blessed, and all people can be blessed in Him. Bless His Glorious Name and you won’t glory in anyone else. No dignitary, celebrity or political leader can compare to God. God’s Name is His Glory and Honor. Don’t bow yourself low before any fellow human. Blessings come from God alone. The Earth is filled with His Glory; all human inventions are pale in comparison to the wondrous works of God.
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw The Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of His robe filled the temple. 2 Above Him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3 And they were calling to one another: “Holy, Holy, Holy is The Lord Almighty; the whole Earth is full of His Glory.” 4 At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
5 “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, The Lord Almighty.” (Isaiah 6)
Holy, Holy, Holy is The Lord God Almighty. He is seated on His Throne, exalted, full of Majesty and Glory, even the seraphim could not look at Him; they covered their eyes with their wings. The pillars of the House of God shook at their profession of His Holiness. Isaiah, juxtaposed to The Lord’s Holiness and Glory, sees himself in his decrepit, sinful condition. Isaiah is confronted with his unclean ways and of those he lives among. The King, The Lord Almighty is Holy. There’s no one Holy but God alone; we can strive to be holy, but God is absolutely Holy. Though He is seated exalted above, His Glory is in all the Earth. Many are oblivious of their sins. They don’t understand how far they have fallen short of His Holiness. It is incumbent upon us to be cognizant of our sins. Like Isaiah, we should be contrite, humble, and honest about our condition. If the seraphim called at each other and the doorposts shook, how much more if The Lord God spoke, would all people tremble and repent!
11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is The Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!” 13 And every creature which is in Heaven and on the Earth and under the Earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and Honor and Glory and Power be to Him Who sits on the Throne, and to The Lamb, forever and ever!” (Revelations 5)
Who is worthy to receive all the highest worship? Worthy is The Lamb who was slain. Worthy is The Lord Jesus Christ, who died on our behalf to redeem us from our sins and make us His Own. He alone and He Who sits on the Throne is worthy of Honor, Glory and Power forever and ever. Thousands of innumerable people from all nations will join with the elders, all living creatures, and the angels to honor and exalt The Lamb of God. Blessing and honor, riches and power belong to The Lamb who was slain. He gave His Life for us so that we could live for God and not for ourselves. We have been made clean and are no longer unworthy to worship before The Holy One. Lift up your hands in awe and adoration to The Holy Lamb. He and The One Who sits on the Throne share the same Glory, Honor and Power, and They will reign forever. Be numbered among those who will fall before the Throne in joyful reverence and adoration.
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Let him return to The Lord; and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. 8 “For My Thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My Ways,” says The Lord. 9 “For as the Heavens are higher than the Earth, so are My Ways higher than your ways, and My Thoughts more than your thoughts.
Forsake wickedness, pride, sin and rebellion. The Lord is beseeching us to return to Him. He has already made the sacrifice for our sins, by His death; we just have to repent and turn away from our thoughts and ways. His Ways are far higher than our ways. We must now seek to live by His Ways and do according to His Will. His Thoughts are for our good. He abundantly pardons those who fess up, see the error of their ways, and yield to Him in complete submission. Forsake your ways and seek His Ways. He is our God and He will always have mercy on those who continue to draw close to Him, with the intent to conform to His Will.
And on that day you will say: “O Lord, I will praise You. Though You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me. 2 Behold, God is my Salvation, I will trust and not be afraid. ‘For Yah, The Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my Salvation.’ ” 3 Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of Salvation. 4 And on that day you will say: “Praise The Lord, call upon His Name, declare His deeds among the peoples, make mention that His Name is exalted (Isaiah 12).
On the day you realize that your sins are forgiven, on that day when you have received grace you didn’t deserve, you will be comforted, when He has turned his anger away. On that day, you will surely praise His Name and will call upon Him without fear, but with exultation. Draw from the well of Salvation and proclaim He is exalted. Why do some get so elated with celebrities who do nothing for our souls? We magnify people who will not be our strength, comfort or joy when we have fouled up, or when we are in our worst form. Now that you have tasted God’s Grace, you don’t need to fear, even when you have fallen into sin and temptation. Come before Him and bare your heart to Him; and with joy receive Mercy. Let His Name be exalted with song and thanksgiving.
5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 Who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God; 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him The Name which is above every name, 10 that at The Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in Heaven, and of those on Earth, and of those under the Earth.11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God The Father (Philippians 2).
Truly, there’s no one like our God. Who can do what The Lord Jesus has done? Who has created all these and does marvelous works? He holds all the powers of the universe and does as He pleases. He is exalted above all other gods and all creation. He is our strength and victory. When we have God we have everything excellent. In The Name of Jesus, we pray with expectancy. We are His children. The Lamb of God was slain for our sins and has given us access to The Exalted One. We must acknowledge that He alone is Holy and repent of our sins. The Lord entreats us to be still, forsake our ways and be acquainted with Him. He commands us to know that He is God. He is highly exalted, seated on His Throne, and His Ways are far above our ways. Exalt Him with highest praise, and honor Him with your life, as you live each day for His Glory.
Praise The Lord! Praise The Name of The Lord; Praise Him, O you servants of The Lord! 2 You who stand in the house of The Lord, in the courts of the house of our God. 3 Praise the Lord, for the Lord is Good; sing praises to His Name, for it is pleasant. 4 For The Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself, Israel for His special treasure. 5 For I know that The Lord is Great, and our Lord is above all gods. 6 Whatever The Lord pleases He does, in Heaven and on Earth, in the seas and in all deep places (Psalm 135).
