God is the supreme and greatest of all lords. All gods of nations are worthless, all that worship images shall be put to shame (palm.96:5).
“Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship him, all ye gods.” – Psalm.97:7
For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens. (1Chr.16:26).
When you say the Lord of lords, you’re actually saying God is the greatest above all other leaders or anyone who is holding power. lord in lowercase indicates a leader.
To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth forever (Psalm.136:6).
In the new testament, Lord of lords was used 3 times referencing Jesus (see, 1Tim.6:5 & Rev.17:14). The title Lord of lords is often used to affirm the uniqueness of the power of God and gives insight into the triune nature of God. The father was referred to as Lord of lords in Deu.10:17 and psalms. The trinity – God the father, Son and Holy Spirit – is the Lord of lords, God of gods beside Him there is no other gods.
Now, let’s take a look at some Scriptural examples that proved the supremacy of God
1). Elijah and the God of Baals – On mount Carmel, we saw the contest between the God of Elijah and god of Baal. “If the Lord be God, then, follow him; but If Baal, follow him.” (1Kings.18:21). Fire was the yardstick of measurement. Our God that answers by fire is the real God. God is a consuming fire! (Heb.12:29)
What you have is enough if you can think enough. It’s my prayer, whatsoever that has taken the place of God in your life will be destroyed by the blood of Jesus. Claiming to serve God & pursuing after other gods is cancerous, I decree that every exile of traditional orientation that you have been sold to, God will rescue by His mighty arms. In Jesus name I pray & decree🙏🏽
We saw another drama in Pharaoh’s court. Aaron rod turned serpent, & so was the magicians’ rod. But be careful here, not all miracles are genuine; don’t mistake traditional magic for miracle (any miracle that doesn’t leaves you with a responsibility is questionable).
Back to my point, the serpent of Aaron swallowed up all the serpents of the magicians. Thus, proven the supremacy of God.
Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)
The article the is a definite article. It’s not I’m “a way” but “the way.” There is only one way which is Jesus. This way may be too narrow to walk, but that is where you find Jesus because that is where He walks, He may be the only Person that you’ll meet one the way.
