NAME OF GOD: Jehovah Elohim Tsaba

Verse: You, O Lord (Jehovah) God (Elohim) of hosts (Tsaba), the God of Israel, Awake to punish all the nations; Do not be gracious to any who are treacherous in iniquity. - Psalm 59:5

Meaning: LORD God of Hosts.

Prayer: Thanksgiving

Jehovah Elohim Tsaba thank you that you are the Lord God of hosts. Thank you have made your strength available to me through my relationship with you. I’m grateful to you for each and every time in my past that you have shown up to right a wrong, or to defend me in a situation where I had been wronged. I have seen your powerful hand in history and I trust I will continue to see it in the days ahead. Thank you for your presence as I face trials and troubles 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.
