The Lord of Hosts, Adonai-Tzva’ot…

Good morning, Family of the Most High:

I love to study the word of God. Sometimes I like to be able to know the root of a scripture, because the Lord calls me to go deeper. This morning’s devotional is a result of my studies. The passage below was taken from ONE FOR ISRAEL (Messianic Jews In Israel) on June 2, 2016:

“Adonai Tzva’ot, the “Lord of Hosts” is one of the names of God, used 235 times in the Bible. The first time it appears is in the story of Hannah and her husband Elkanah, in Hannah’s struggle with barrenness. Hannah is the first person to call God by this name.

She cries out to the one who is able to create from nothing, to whom every cell and atom are called to attention. She knows that her hope lies only with the one whose voice the whole host of heavens and earth must obey. She understands that the command of the Lord of Armies will and must be executed. And it was.”

Today’s Scripture Passage

Psalm 24

Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

By David. A psalm:

(1) The earth is Adonai’s, with all that is in it,
the world and those who live there;
for he set its foundations on the seas
and established it on the rivers.

Who may go up to the mountain of Adonai?
Who can stand in his holy place?
Those with clean hands and pure hearts,
who don’t make vanities the purpose of their lives
or swear oaths just to deceive.
They will receive a blessing from Adonai
and justice from God, who saves them.
Such is the character of those who seek him,
of Ya‘akov, who seeks your face.(Selah)

Lift up your heads, you gates!
Lift them up, everlasting doors,
so that the glorious king can enter!
Who is he, this glorious king?
Adonai, strong and mighty,
Adonai, mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, you gates!
Lift them up, everlasting doors,
so that the glorious king can enter!
10 Who is he, this glorious king?
Adonai-Tzva’ot —
he is the glorious king.(Selah)

Go in peace, while serving and praising the King of Glory, the Lord God strong and mighty!!! Amen
