names of God Sovereignty

The Most High God part 2

clip image002 thumb The Most High God Part 2The inspired writer of Genesis includes a lengthy introduction to Abram’s victory over the kings of the land, a closer look at their names reveals much about how God views the kingdoms of this world.

Amraphel is a sayer of darkness and fall of the sayer, Arioch is lion-like, King of Ellasar or chastened by God, Chedorlaomer is a handful of sheaves, King of Elam or “eternity,” Tidal is a “great son,” King of nations usually of non-Hebrew people.

Here with a word picture is the history of the world; we live in a fallen world filled with deception and lies, propagated by false prophets of darkness. “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened” Romans 1:21.

The history of the world is the warring of the nations, and after they make war they are chastened by God and loose their position in the world. “…that you should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein: Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.” Acts 14:15-16. (Emphasis added)

After all the warring is over, and the pleasure seeking and fortune hunting ends, it is always true that man is left with a hand full of sheaves for all eternity. “What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? Or what can one give in exchange for his life?” Matthew 16:26

To rule the nations without the God, who is the ultimate ruler of nations, is foolishness indeed! The Christian should understand that God rules in heaven no matter what it looks like on earth; His plan is coming to pass completely on schedule, He is building His church as He said He would. Nothing and no one can stay His hand or prevent all things He has ordained to be.

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
