Covenant & Government #17: Lord of Hosts Part 3

“For thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth,
the sea and dry land; and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, 
and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the LORD of hosts.”
—Haggai 2:6-7 (NKJV)

Of the many names of the Lord, several of them specifically refer to His position as sovereign leader. One of such names is the Lord of Hosts. Our focus on repentance and replacement for our relationship with the Lord of Hosts pertains to Him as the sovereign ruler and His governmental authority over our nation.

The Lord Our Husband – Part 5

For your Maker is your husband,
The Lord of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.
Isaiah 54:5 (NKJV)

 

Names of the Lord Our Husband

Isaiah 54:5 shows us several names that are specific to the Lord as our Husband.

  • Our Maker is our Husband.
  • Our Husband’s name is the Lord of Hosts.
  • Our Redeemer is our Husband.
  • Our Husband is the Holy One of Israel.
  • Our Husband is called the God of the whole earth.

Blessing: The Lord of Hosts is Our Husband

Beloved, the Lord your Maker created you to live in covenant relationship with Him as the Lord your Husband, whose name is the Lord of Hosts.

Beloved, hear the Word of the Lord for you.

For your Maker is your husband,
The Lord of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.
Isaiah 54:5 (NKJV)

Then you shall know that I have sent this commandment to you,
That My covenant with Levi may continue,”
Says the Lord of hosts.
“My covenant was with him, one of life and peace,
And I gave them to him that he might fear Me;
So he feared Me
And was reverent before My name.”
Malachi 2:4-5 (NKJV)

Beloved, the Lord of Hosts made a covenant of life and peace with Levi as a priest that extended to his descendants. When you are in Christ, you are a member of the royal priesthood (1 Pet 2:9). Since Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever, what the Lord intended for the covenant of life and peace with Levi as a priest and his descendants, He intends for you today as a member of the royal priesthood.

The Hebrew word for peace is shalom, which means, “completeness (in number); safety and soundness (in body); welfare, health and prosperity; peace, quiet and tranquility; contentment; peace, friendship of human relationships and with God especially in covenant relationship; peace (from war).”

As the Lord of Hosts, your Husband is the Commander-in-Chief of the armies of angels. Thus, He is able to provide the protection from the enemy that is available to you in this covenant of life and peace.

Beloved, I bless you to live from the provision of the covenant of life and peace the Lord your Husband, the Lord of Hosts, has made with you. May you fully experience the provision of abundant life made available to you by your Husband in the covenant of life and peace. I bless you to live from the provisions of the covenant of peace/shalom, which include: completeness (in number); safety and soundness (in body); welfare health and prosperity; peace, quiet and tranquility; contentment; peace, friendship of human relationships and with God especially in covenant relationship; peace (from war).

I bless you to be strengthened by the assurance of the Lord your Husband’s love for you to know He will protect you in this covenant relationship. May you grow in your identity and love by knowing and experiencing your Husband’s covenant with you for life and shalom.

Beloved, please turn your face to the Lord your Husband, the Lord of Hosts. Please ask Him to teach you how to live from the fullness of the covenant of life and peace He has made with you. Please ask Him how you can relate to Him as your Husband, the Lord of Hosts, within the provisions of the covenant of life and peace. Please ask Him to instruct your spirit, soul and body to live from the provisions contained in the covenant of life and peace.

Beloved, I bless you to know the Lord your Husband, the Lord of Hosts, has made a covenant of life and peace with you. May your Husband bless your spirit, soul and body with the provisions that come from the covenant of life and peace. I bless you in the name of Yeshua, in the name of Jesus.

The Lord Our Husband – Part 3

For your Maker is your husband,
The Lord of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.
Isaiah 54:5 (NKJV)

 

As we continue with our series on “The Lord Our Husband,” maintaining the focus that the Lord is our Husband, rather than our Husband who is the Lord, keeps us from making an idol of husband. We do not want to make God in the image as our Husband based on earthly relationships. For women, it is important not to go into a fantasy world of God as our Husband. It would be easy to do so for women who are unmarried. It could be an escape for women who are in less than ideal marriages. For men, the aspect of the Lord being their Husband needs to be based on Scripture on who God says He is to them. The model of male-female relationship in natural marriage does not work for men to apply to their relationship with the Lord as their Husband. There are aspects of the male-female relationship in natural marriage that for women should not be applied to how they view the Lord as their Husband either. Instead of looking at natural relationships of how husbands and wives interact to see how we are to interact with the Lord our Husband, we look to the Scripture to see what it says about the Lord our God in His role to us as Husband. We need to see what He says about being our Husband, not what we think He should be like based on earthly marriages.

 

Names of the Lord Our Husband

Isaiah 54:5 shows us several names that are specific to the Lord as our Husband.

  • Our Maker is our Husband.
  • Our Husband’s name is the Lord of Hosts.
  • Our Redeemer is our Husband.
  • Our Husband is the Holy One of Israel.
  • Our Husband is called the God of the whole earth.

The Lord Our Maker is Our Husband

“Woe to him who strives with his Maker!
Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth!
Shall the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’
Or shall your handiwork say, ‘He has no hands?’”
Isaiah 45:9

We understand this Scripture mostly from the perspective of the Lord our Maker as our Father. Whereas that is a correct interpretation and application of this passage, this blessing is based on the Lord our Maker in its application to Him being our Husband.

Blessing you with the Lord your Maker as your Husband

Beloved, the Lord your Maker is your Husband. His intricate fashioning and designing of you fits you perfectly as His bride. He created you, chose you and loves you. It is one thing to know your Heavenly Father as the Lord your Maker. For indeed, your Heavenly Father is your Maker. However, the Lord your Maker is also your Husband. This role differs from that of your Heavenly Father as your Maker. Knowing your Maker as your Husband brings love and assurance that fills a place in your heart that can only be filled by Him as your Husband.

Beloved, hear the Word of the Lord for you.

For your Maker is your husband,
The Lord of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.
Isaiah 54:5 (NKJV)

“Woe to him who strives with his Maker!
Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth!
Shall the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’
Or shall your handiwork say, ‘He has no hands?’”
Isaiah 45:9 (NKJV)

Beloved, it is one thing to not strive or contend against the Lord your Maker as Father who made you. It is completely another thing to not strive or contend against the Lord your Maker who is your Husband. The deepest longing in your heart, whether as a man or a woman, is to be loved. Perhaps you have wondered, “Will I be loved and accepted based on how I am created, including my natural strengths and weaknesses? Will this love and acceptance result in marriage or being able to sustain a happy healthy marriage? If someone really knows me, will they love me or perceive me as an imposter?” These answers come from being in a covenant relationship with someone in a marriage that cannot be met in relationship with a parent. Knowing your Maker who made you, formed you, fashioned you and chose you to be His bride answers these questions and meets these needs.

Beloved, I bless you to live from the place of confidence and reality that the Lord your Maker perfectly fashioned you. He chose you from the beginning of time to be in covenant relationship to Him as His bride. I bless you to stop striving with the Lord your Maker, who is your Husband, over how He fashioned you. Striving with Him over how He made you keeps you from being able to partner with Him in the work of bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to earth. I bless you to know that the Lord your Maker, who is your Husband, truly loves and cherishes you. He takes delight in you. You bring Him pleasure. I bless you to live in harmony with the Lord your Husband. I bless you to know the depth of the covenant of life and peace He has made with you as a member of the royal priesthood (Mal 2:4-5, 1 Pet 2:9).

Beloved, hear the Word of the Lord for you.

Let Israel rejoice in their Maker;
Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Let them praise His name with the dance;
Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.

For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the humble with salvation.
Psalm 149:2-4 (NKJV)

Beloved, I bless you to rejoice in your Maker, the Lord your Husband. I bless you to be joyful in your King and Husband. May you sing praises to His name. I bless you to live from the reality that the Lord your Maker, who is your Husband, takes pleasure in you. As you continue to grow in your humility, may your presence reflect the beauty of the salvation of the Lord your Maker and Husband.

Beloved, please turn your face and heart to the Lord your Maker and your Husband. Please ask Him to heal your perception of how you see yourself where you strive with Him over how He made you. Please ask Him to show you how to live from being fully loved by Him as your Husband in how He made you. Please ask Him how you can partner with Him as His bride in who you are for the purpose of bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to earth. Please ask Him to show you the pleasure He takes in you, His beloved bride. As the bride of Christ, I bless you in the name of Yeshua, in the name of Jesus.

The Pleasure of the Lord

[Then Jesus said to His disciples] “Do not fear, little flock, for it
is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
Luke 12:32 (NKJV)

 

Beloved, as a member of the royal priesthood, I bless you to know that the Lord takes pleasure in you. It is His pleasure to fulfill the covenant of life and peace He made with you as the Lord of Hosts (Mal 2:4-5). He is not one who puts fine print into the terms of a contract to trap you in order to keep you from receiving the fullness of the provision of the contract. In fact, He fully discloses in Scripture how you can keep covenant with Him. It is His pleasure to keep the covenant of life and peace He made with you.

I encourage you to live uprightly in order for you to know the Lord takes pleasure in you (1 Chr 29:17).

May you continue to repent of things the Lord shows you, so that you will live. He takes pleasure in His people living (Ezek 18:23, 18:32, 33:11).

May you be blessed by the Lord showing you the path of life (Ps 16:11). I bless you to remain in the presence of the Lord, for in His presence is fullness of joy (Ps 16:11). I bless you to live from the reality that you are seated with Jesus Christ at the right hand of the Father. I bless you to know that at His right hand are eternal pleasures, which include you (Ps 16:11; Eph 1:20, 2:6).

May you live as though you know the Lord takes pleasure in the prosperity of those who serve Him (Ps 35:27).

Humility Blessing

Beloved, as a member of the royal priesthood, your role is to be an ambassador and messenger of the Lord of Hosts (Mal 2:7). This responsibility of representing the Lord of Hosts is to be carried out in the humility of the Lord Jesus/Yeshua Ha Mashiach. I bless you to be clothed in humility. May you receive the blessings that come from being humble.

May you experience the Lord’s deliverance and salvation that is reserved for the humble (2 Sam 22:28; Psalm 18:27).

I bless you with humility so that you can seek the face of the Lord in prayer in order to turn away from all evil so that you may receive the forgiveness of the Lord (2 Chr 7:14). The prayers and repentance of the humble are essential for the Lord to bring healing to the land (2 Chr 7:14). I bless you with courage and faith to be truly humble. May you be blessed to see the results of your humility reflected in the Lord’s healing work in the land of your home, community, State and Nation.

I bless you with humility that is strength against being angry and taking revenge on behalf of yourself and/or others. The Lord remembers all wrongs committed against you. It is He who avenges the blood of the humble (Ps 9:12). May you find comfort and strength in the truth that the Lord remembers the cry of the humble (Ps 9:12).

As you continue and grow in humility, may you be blessed with the guidance of Lord concerning justice (Ps 25:9). May you continually lead a life of humility and offer the prayers of the humble for justice. The Lord hears the desires of the humble for justice (Ps 10:17). I bless you to experience the Lord preparing your heart, causing your ear to receive instruction from the Lord as to how to do justice for the fatherless and oppressed. May you have wisdom from the Lord that gives strategy to those who oppress that they may oppress no more (Ps 10:17-18).

May you receive the blessing of being taught the way of the Lord that results from your humility (Ps 25:9).

As you seek the Lord in humility, may you see Him and be filled with gladness. May your heart live as a result of blessings from seeking God in humility (Ps 69:32).

Since the Lord your God cares for you, may you completely trust Him with all your concerns. May you humble yourself under the mighty hand of the Lord your God. By doing so, may you be blessed by the Lord exalting you and lifting you to places of honor (Ps 147:6; Matt 23:12; James 4:10; 1 Pet 5:6-7; Prov 29:23).

May you truly know the Lord takes pleasure in His people. I bless you to live from the beautification that His salvation and deliverance is to you as one who is humble (Ps 149:4).

I bless you to know the favor, grace and elegance that the Lord gives the humble (Prov 3:34).  May you receive more of the grace of the Lord as you grow in humility (James 4:6). I bless you with grace from the Lord “that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness and grace of speech” (Strong’s G5485 charis for grace).

As you remain humble, may you continually be blessed with and increase your joy in the Lord. I bless you to rejoice in the Holy One of Israel (Is 29:19).

The High and Lofty One—the One whose name is Holy—dwells in the high and holy place with those who have a humble spirit. May you be blessed to dwell with the Lord who inhabits eternity. May your spirit be revived as you dwell with the Lord in the high and holy place (Is 57:15).

As you pray in humility before the Lord your God, may the Lord release angels with assignments and messages to your prayers like He did for Daniel (Dan 10:12).

I encourage you to always remain humble, for in doing so, you shall be able trust in the name of the Lord (Zeph 3:12).

I encourage you to learn from the gentleness and humility of heart that is found in Jesus/Yeshua. May you find rest for your soul in Him (Matt 11:28-30).

I bless you with humbling yourself like a child. In doing so, may you be blessed with a position of greatness in the Kingdom of heaven (Matt 18:4).

I bless you with courage and wisdom to associate only with those who are humble (Rom 12:16).

Beloved, let the thinking of Christ Jesus and His humility be in you. When Jesus Christ took on human form, He left His equality with God the Father and the reputation of this equality when He came to earth. Jesus/Yeshua humbled Himself and became human. It was so important for Yeshua/Jesus to be in relationship with all mankind and to die for all sins, that He was able to humble Himself to die the death of a sinner on a cross. In doing so, God exalted Him to a place that is higher than any person can attain. All will bow and confess that Yeshua/Jesus Christ is Lord in order to glorify God the Father (Phil 2:5-11).  May you be blessed with the humility that comes from Christ in order to be effective in the work of the Kingdom of Heaven. I bless you in the name of Yeshua, in the name of Jesus.
