Materialism begins where your income ends. Some of you just got that. I laugh when people say, oh, yeah, he’s materialistic. She’s materialistic. How do you know that? What income bracket; what zip code; what make model of car; what square footage; what vacation destination constitutes materialism? You don’t know and I don’t either. It’s between you and God; me and God. I’m a steward. I’m not an owner. So quit acting like an owner. You want to enjoy life? Your stuff is not your stuff. Your stuff is God’s stuff and once you realize that, what’s gonna happen? It’ll flow from God to you and to others, to his church, and you’ll enjoy what it means to know God. To know Adhonai, to know the fact that Jesus is Lord. That he has dominion. It’s Lordship. It’s the thread. So meet Adhonai.
Meet Jehovah, that’s another name of God. Jehovah. For those of you who are into statistics, the word Jehovah, the name Jehovah is used 6,800 times throughout scripture. Jehovah. Jehovah. Jehovah. Let me give you a hypothetical situation that, that Moses gave God. This is pretty funny to me. Exodus Chapter 3. Here’s what Moses said, suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, the God of your father has sent me to you and they ask me, what is his name? Then what shall I tell them? Look at verse 14; God said to Moses, I am who I am. (Ed chuckles) I can hear Moses saying, is that your final answer? (audience laughter) This is what you’re to say to the Israelites, I am has __________________me to you. God is self-sufficient and self-existent he can only define himself. He’s sovereign. The great “I am”. Meet Jehovah, the great I am.
Well, let’s take this name Jehovah and do the KOA thing. Let’s, let’s camp out on this name for a while and roast some marshmallows. We can make some smores and all that stuff, okay, because I want to introduce you to some other names of God.© Copyright 2012 admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Ministry
