NAME OF GOD: Jehovah El Elohim

Verse: The Mighty One, God, the Lord (Jehovah), the Mighty One (El), God (Elohim), the Lord! He knows, and may Israel itself know. If it was in rebellion, or if in an unfaithful act against the Lord do not save us this day! - Joshua 22:22

Meaning: The LORD God of Gods, the LORD, mighty, powerful, strong One over all.

Prayer: Supplication

Jehovah El Elohim, teach me to love like you. Teach me to walk in the strength and might of which you are made. As your child, your Spirit lives within me and I can access your strength through your Spirit’s presence. I’m not always strong, especially in the face of health issues or financial issues or even with regard to relational issues – but you are. So I ask you to intervene in my thoughts, heart and mind when these situations arise so that I can then fully manifest your might and power in my life.

The Power of the Cross: Putting it to Work in Your Life

Rather than viewing the cross as an historical event that will take us to heaven, we ought to view it as a current event containing everything we need to bring heaven to bear on earth.

In The Power of the Cross, Tony Evans carefully and pastorally applies the cross of Christ to life today. In three parts, he considers:

What makes Christ unique; how Old Testament prophecy and typology looked ahead to Him; and how His humiliation, death and resurrection sets Him apart as Lord

What was accomplished on the cross for us, how it is to be the centerpiece of our lives, and how it's a source of authority for us

What is the power of the cross and the stability it provides, deliverance it offers, the power of its ongoing remembrance, and more

The cross is the hinge of history. How much more, then, is it the hinge of your life? It gained more for you than you may realize; do not make the grave error of overlooking it. As a thank you for your gift of any amount, we’ll get this brand new book, The Power of the Cross, out to you right away.
