11.Jehovah Elyon (Lord Most High) (Psalms 7:17, 47:2, 97:1,9)
This name is referred throughout Bible in the Book of Psalms. The Lord Most High rules over kingdoms and every known authority. The name of Jesus is exalted high above every known name in the universe and that in the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess to Lord.
In Genesis chapter 17:1, God said to Abraham, ”I am Almighty God” The word used in Greek is El Shaddai” meaning Almighty, All Powerful, All Sufficient. Lord God called Abram and changed his name to Abraham because God said “I have made you a father of many nations”. After that it took a long time before Abraham had a son. But even before the event took place, Abraham was in God’s eye actually the Father of many nations. Romans 4: 17 says “He gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did”. Only Lord Most High has authority to perform and command such things.
Coming to New Testament, we find in 1 Timothy 6: 15 that our Lord is
(1) The blessed and only Potentate
(2) The King of Kings
(3) The Lord of Lords
(4) Who alone has Immortality
(5) Dwelling in Approachable Light
(6) Whom no man can see
(7) And can see....
This one is our Jehovah Elyon who is above everything known and unknown.
Dwelling Place of Most High (Psalm 91)
This Lord Most High dwells in the high and lofty place and with those who have a contrite and humble spirit. He loves to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of contrite ones. (Isaiah 57: 15)
Because your dwelling place is under the most secret place of the Most High (Psalm 91:1), You have Deliverence , You have exaltation, You have Answered Prayer, You have divine presence in trouble, and You will be honoured. (Psalm 91: 14, 15, 16)
Most High Rules (Daniel 4: 17)
