Adonai

Adonai is the Hebrew word meaning "my lord, my master", from adon, "lord, master". It is mostly used as “Lord” God in the Old Testament.

There is no master but Adonai. All others are pretenders and false gods that cannot help and cannot save. Adonai reigns over all the Earth and the Heavens and everything that was, is, and ever shall be. The word Lord has been so diluted even used to describe some men, but there is only one Lord, the majesty that is Christ. And the universe continues moving, existing, breathing, and forming but above it all is Adonai.

There is no power but Adonai and His power has no limits, it is exalted in the heavens and throughout the Earth. There is none worthy, none so exalted as Adonai. His beauty eclipses our imagination and to be given a five second glimpse of Adonai would certainly immobilize us in our present bodies. The Creator God has made beauty upon this Earth for His glory, but this beauty will make way for a new heaven and a new earth but there will never be a new Adonai, He is perfectly beautiful in every dimension and one fleeting glance will buckle the knees of any creature born of woman. Go ahead, imagine what He must look like, you are mistaken my brothers and my sisters. Adonai is infinitely greater and more beautiful than any heart can conjure up and He cannot be captured by the most Spirit filled imagination. Flawless in glory and indescribable in His breathtaking visage, and just His presence is overwhelming, our Adonai is exalted for all to worship.

Adonai is deserving of adulation and praise but most importantly He warrants utter and complete subjection. Slavish obedience is His due and no one can abide in His presence with pride and self will. Bow down and speak with fear and trembling, “Here am I, Adonai, speak and your servant will obey”. And as His power permeates your very being you are consumed with His everlasting love and worship is your only expression before His Majestic Lordship. Adonai the Universal Ruler spreads out His Lordship like an eagle spreads his massive wings and takes flight with an eye over his domain. There is no competition for His kingdom and this Everlasting Potentate neither sleeps nor slumbers and there is no searching of His understanding.

Do not think we serve a cringing and maligned king, oh no, there is coming an apocalypse, an unveiling, a breach in the fabric that separates the temporal from the eternal and through it comes a celestial stampede with an innumerable company of saints riding back into the Earth surrounded by heavens glory and following their Conquering Lord, Adonai. No one shall stand, no one will argue, and all the reasons and excuses of man will fall silent before the powerful glory that robes this Lord. Adonai will claim His victory like no one has ever seen before and the whole earth will bow before His might. Even the place of the skull where they killed Him will now be His and Adonai will reign as Lord over all from the very city that stoned the prophets and rejected the very One who now returns. The power of His wrath should make even His loyal subjects tremble for no one has been a witness to the flaming fire that is His entourage.

And as He ascends up the steps of the Temple in the city of peace He turns, gazes over the spoils that are now His reward, and He sits upon His throne. Every corner of the universe fall before Him and every tongue confesses that “Jesus is Lord”. Adonai now reigns for all to see, high and lifted up, sitting on a throne, and His train has filled eternity. Beautiful, majestic, glorious, powerful, august, and the Eternal Redeemer Lord, Adonai. The Creator on man, the Giver of life, the Savior of souls, and He who inhabits eternity.

Adonai,
We worship before You.

Amen Rick,

Oh to see Him! I want so much to be with Him. That song, Imagine by Mercyme a few years ago always bothered me some because I think that we will start by falling on our faces before Him in adoration and fear. He is worthy and we must pray for the fulfilling of His Kingdom to come and come soon.

In Christ

Rick,
we really do not appreciate His glory and majesty like we should. When you think about it, he is separate from all of us, there is no one or nothing that is so beautiful. The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Thank you for sharing such a vivid description of Adonai.

Psalms 29:2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

Hi!!!
I happened to stumble across your page.
I have been going through ALOT of healing and growing through the last few years and have learned through it all, that we are serving an amazing God, The One and Only LION of JUDAH. I love to picture him as this magnificent Lion standing watch over me and protecting me.
When I saw your page it really caught my eye! When I read it it gave me goosebumps! His power is awesome!Something we can't ever fathom!
Thank you. It was very encouraging.
