The Lord is a holy God

Bishop-Elect Dr. Monterey D. Lee, Sr.

“I have made a promise, one that will not be broken: righteousness and strength I have spoken. It shall not return broken. Everyone will bow down and worship Me, as Lord, God, and Creator. Every knee shall bow, every tongue shall confess [swear]. They will admit, in the Lord that I have righteousness and strength: that I alone can and will bring about justice. All that are incensed [angry] against Him [God] shall be ashamed.

In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, [given victory and great honor] to My people Israel,” Isaiah 45:23.

God had the following message for the Isaraelites: ‘First remember who I am. I am Jehovah, your protector. I promise to always protect you and guide you. I am Yahweh; the Lord God; the One with the Highest esteem. This is My covenant name. I am Adonai, the God your Master; Elohim; Father God; God the Creator. I am all powerful; I am the Sovereign One; I am the Almighty ruler of all things. I am Abba, your Father; Jehovah Shalom, the Lord of peace; Jehovah Nissi, the Lord your banner. I will protect My very own. I am Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals; Jehovah Jireh, the Lord who will provide. So don’t forget who I am, because I am all that you need.

‘Secondly, don’t forget that there is no one else but Me, neither Baal (or bool), the god of fertility and weather [rain and storms]; Astarte (a-star-de), goddess of war and sexual love; Asherah (ass-she-ra), the wife of God [Yahweh]. Asherah had her own prophets and was a part of the ancient Babylonian religion; Chemosh (kim-mush), the god of the Moabites and the god of war and destruction;

Dagon (day-gen), the god of bounty—one of the oldest demon lords. We will hear much from him; Moloch (mar-lick), the god of child sacrifice and a pagan god; Tammuz (tim-mus), the god of new life, seasonal death and rebirth of crops.’

“That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is none else. Now everyone from the east to the west will learn that I am the Lord. No other gods are real,” Isaiah 45:6.

God is confirming His own identity as Lord. There is no other god but God. He says, ‘I am the true establishmentarian of all things, there are no other gods beside me. No other god’s are real.’

“I created everything from the sky above to the earth below. All men will know that there are no other gods but Me,” Isaiah 44:24.

There is no other God beside Jehovah. There is nothing done without Him. The spiritual meaning is that God shall reign; God is sovereign. He has dominion and all authority. He reigns as King, and the earth will be glad of His Lordship. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. No one is able to do what He has done. Isaiah says to look to God and be saved. He sees God in His temple on His throne, while the seraphim (angels of the highest order) call out that the Lord God is holy.
