Adonai is Elohim YHVH, Melech ha olam. He * is * your Provider: He is YHVH Yireh (or some spell it “YHWH” Yireh. The phrase means: YHVH (Yehovah) will provide.
He rules over the heavens and the earth He created. He rules and reigns over all the angels, everywhere (and at every level!), … though the rebellious ones, who were expelled, thrown out, of heaven, do not obey His Voice.
Therefore, because He directs, commands, every “host” (or, in English, most might call “a host” an army), then, Elohim (G-d) YHVH (The I AM) is also known by the title: YHVH (or Elohim) Tzeva’ot. If you happen to use a Bible in American English as your jumping-off point for in-depth study, it may use the title “The LORD of hosts” instead of YHVH Tzeva’ot.
At times, I forget to voice to Avi (my Father in heaven) YHVH, in spoken prayer, that I * do * intend to acknowledge Who He is * as * YHVH Tzeva’ot. I * do * realize He is The ultimate Judge of my life. And, He cannot lie (see Numbers 29:13 and Titus 1:2).
He is my Compassionate Sovereign Ruler, Whose Kingdom rules over everyone and in every place in His universe.
So, I can (and often, should) say aloud that YHVH (Yod-Hay-Vav-Hay is the tetragrammaton which YHVH told Moshe/Moses, at The Burning Bush, in the land of Midian, to say to the children of Yisrael/Israel was and is His Set-Apart Name) * is * Tzeva’ot — The Master of all the heavenly armies of messengers. That, alone, can dispel the kingdom of darkness’ emissaries, which “try” to affect us in our minds and work, in some areas of the world (it seems) more actively than in others, to “try” to wreak havoc on humans, especially those who have chosen to walk with The Master of His own universe: Elohim YHVH Tzeva’ot, El Elyon (The Most High Elohim), Whose Redeemer-Son is Yeshua ha Mashiach (my own Savior, Redeemer, Adonai/Master and coming King).
I used the word “try,” above, because * all * that the rebellious angels / messengers can do is to “try.” Note: In Hebrew, the word translated into English as “angel” is actually malach. Its foremost meaning is actually messenger.
They cannot actually get through to me, * unless * I allow a wrong thought, or a deceptive thought, to “get past my threshold in mind.” We are taught, by Yeshua, to be vigilant. Shimon Kefa / Peter, and Shaul of Tarsus / Paul the apostle (and Lucas the physician and Marcus/Mark both learned from Shaul), learned from Yeshua to teach this concept of watchfulness in prayer. (see Matthew 26:41, Luke 21:36, Mark 14:38, and I Peter 5:8-9, Ephesians 6:18 and Colossians 4:2)
Those who oppose The King of His universe, Elohim YHVH, Melech ha olam,
The ones who oppose Elohim YHVH are only … one-third of the messengers / angels, fell (were expelled) from heaven, because they chose to “side with” the adversary / the accuser (of us, as believers; he is a false accuser), who decided that he wanted (or, shall we say, thought he deserved) to rule over the world, yet that one (a high-level messenger) did not want to learn, and live by, the Truthful, Good Character that * is * Who Elohim YHVH truly is, and has, within His Being.
Two-thirds of the messengers / angels remained with Elohim YHVH, loyal to Him, to do what He sends them to do, on the earth He created. People, on earth, who are not in a right relationship (rightly associated) with The Compassionate One, The Ruler of His own universe (Elohim YHVH), do not realize the enemy / false accuser / adversary of their souls does not need to “try” to affect them, in the way that one “tries” to affect true believers in YHVH and Yeshua. They act in ways that agree with the enemy of our souls.
The accuser of our souls, of our brethren as some Bibles state it, “tries” to affect the ones the enemy sees as opposed to his attempts to over-rule the True Ruler of this universe, Elohim YHVH. Why? Why does YHVH allow the accuser, the enemy of our souls, to “work hard” to “try” to influence us, to do wrong things, or to think evil thoughts?
One reason seems to be because the enemy seems to think it is his job to get true believers off track, off The Path of Light, and … to “try” to get / deceive / persuade us (I say “us” because I am a true believer in Yeshua ha Mashiach, The only-begotten Son of Elohim YHVH, The Father Almighty) to “think” in ways that oppose, or turn against, The Truth. Even if we have been true believers for quite a while, or for many years, we may not be as “watchful” and “prayerful” as we should be, …
… and, as a result, we have given an opening we do not realize … which gives permission to the enemy to “get through” our protective threshold, or shield around us, which Elohim YHVH has given to us, to protect and help us.
Why does the enemy succeed in the “trying” he does?
Only because we are not noticing his tricks, his schemes, or his deceptive thoughts we thought were our own thoughts, in our minds, …
… and there are more reasons.
So, be full of watching, for your Redemption (Yeshua) * is * soon to come back! ( smile )
And, be full of praying, … praying continually, at all times, in all places and at every time, day or night. This does not mean you never do anything else, friends. You know that. It simply means we are to dwell in an attitude of prayer to our heavenly Father, in every circumstance, and when faced with any obstacle or trouble or problem. Life is full of those, right?
IF we remain, by choice, Watchful, we will dispel the darkness! We will be allowing Yeshua’s Light to shine through us, through our attitudes revealed in our words, our emotions, our behavior and our actions. We will be enabled, by YHVH’s Ruach ha Kodesh, His Holy Spirit, to resist the enemy, IF we walk / live / dwell in an attitude of prayer, as Yeshua prayed, and … evidenced in words David the shepherd and king wrote when he was in danger of being killed, crying out to Elohim YHVH for deliverance that only Elohim YHVH was able to bring. No other could have delivered David from the dangers he faced, many times in his life.
Friends, leave me a comment IF you have any questions about this. I hope I explained enough to help you better understand some of the battles in our minds that we all face, while on this earth. Knowing these things can enable you to overcome and sense the real Freedom in your soul that we all seem to sense we need * and * want!
Prayerfully (having spent a good amount of time asking your heavenly Father to enable you to know Him better, and asking Him to fight these battles for your mind * for * you, because none of us are able, on our own, to overcome the enemy’s attacks, in our thoughts) resist (Choose to stop the lies, and the hateful thoughts, and the bitter, or angry, or violent, retaliatory or vengeful thoughts, etc., from affecting your attitude toward another person who has hurt you in any real way, emotionally or otherwise — These are just examples, to help you understand * what * we are taught, as true believers, to “resist.”) * all * the attempts of the adversary (ha satan: a title, not a name. That one’s name was taken away by Elohim YHVH, when that one rebelled against The Almighty One, El Elyon. The title of ha satan, which means, from the Hebrew, the accuser) to get you to think or do anything you know is not in agreement with what Elohim YHVH, The G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob / Israel, taught us in His written Word!
