NAME OF GOD: Jehovah El Elyon

Verse: Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have sworn to the Lord (Jehovah) God (El) Most High (Elyon), possessor of heaven and earth. - Genesis 14:22

Meaning: The LORD, the Most High God.

Prayer: Adoration

Jehovah El Elyon, your name means the LORD, most high God. I praise you for your position. I honor you as you are seated above all else. I lift up your name and bless who you are. You are the possessor of heaven and earth. You are the friend of humanity. You are the highest being in existence. For all of this and more, I lift you up as king. May your kingdom rule be made manifest on earth as you demonstrate your power and might above all.

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.
