7 Lift up your heads, you gates, and be lifted up, you ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! 8 Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, you gates, And lift them up, you ancient doors, That the King of glory may come in! 10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of armies, He is the King of glory. Selah
The Lord Jesus Christ is the ancient gate, door and only way that a person has to go through to enter the kingdom of heaven. If you have a question , the word of God will answer it. Who is the King of glory, who is the Lord of armies who wins all battles? Surely if you ask God who He is His word will answer the hearts who truly seek Him. Moses was a Hebrew by birth and knew about the God of Abraham, Isaac and the God of Jacob, that is how God answered who He was when Moses asked the voice coming from a burning bush. Moses’ people the Hebrews for four hundreds centuries as slaves in Egypt and still remembered there was a God of Abraham, the creator of heaven and earth.
The Lord God, wants you and I to know who He is, God wanted Moses attention and He got it. Moses saw a burning bush, but the bush was turning to ashes or being consumed. By curiosity Moses got closer to the strange unnatural occurrence, and when he realized it was God in His glory, fear overcame him. Moses was told by God to tell Israel, the Lord would rescue them from slavery, Moses reply what is your name of Lord if Israel what name to you go by, God reply, I AM WHO I AM, and the tell Israel that the Great I AM has sent you.
The Lord’s name I AM, in Hebrews is YHWH, the English language adds vowels, Yahweh. When you read a English Bible and see the Lord’s written like this in all uppercase (LORD) , YHWH was written there in Hebrew. It is a simple statement by God, that He is simply everything and everything exists because of Him. When the Lord comes to the world as Immanuel (God with us), He is introduced as the God who was in the beginning and is still the Great I AM.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.
I am not good at arithmetic or reading the Bible and keeping track of how old the world is, but for those who have, they say ever since creation the world is close to 6,000 years old. Ever since creation, mankind has had many different gods, most of them gods of the sun. The only real God, is the one who changes the hearts of mankind, and returns them into the images they were made of in the beginning of creation. Jesus the Lord God of creation, He is the King of glory. If you want to ask who the true God and King of glory ask ancient words and listen to His voice. It all goes back to Psalm 23:1, if the Lord is your Shepherd, you will not lack glory, He will give it to you freely. God bless you all, the King of glory loves you and so do I. Samuel J Head.
