Jehovah-El Elyon

Genesis 14:19 (KJV)
19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:

“El” expresses strength, might or power, or by extension, deity. “Elyon” means the supreme or the most high. When they are used together then it expresses that there is none higher and there is nothing that can be compared. It captures God as the highest authority in the affairs of mankind and in all nature. Who could be higher than the God who framed the worlds just by speaking them into existence by his word? He is the highest power, “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent (all powerful or all ruling) reigneth.” Paul wrote to Timothy, “That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;” This reveals that Jesus Christ is the visible of an invisible God. Matthew recorded the words of Jesus, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”  There is no other who should receive praise or glory. John recorded an event that will take place (Revelation 7:9-12)“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; 10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. 11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, 12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.” He is our blessing and deserves our honor. He is the Most High God. You are blessed just by knowing him. Receive your blessing of knowing who the Lord God is, and was, and is to come.
