So last week I began a series titled the   “names of God “.. 

We were able to establish that the bible uses different names and titles to refer to God and emphasise  certain aspects of His person and attributes . 

Today we will study another name amongst the numerous names of God . This particular name expresses Gods absolute sovereignty and control over the affairs of man . It denotes the our God is still in control of the affairs of the world even though in reality things may seem adverse ..


This word -El Elyon ,occurs 28 times in the bible And occurs 19 times in Psalms alone . El Elyon is first used in 

Gen 14:18.

Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. 

It also occurs in the book of psalms 

Psalm 57:2

I will cry out to God Most High ,
 To God who performs all things for me.

Psalm 78:35

Then they remembered that God was their rock ,
 And the Most High God their Redeemer. 

God is still in control no matter what may be happening . He is our redeemer ,our rock .

He is sovereign and He is in absolute control. Our world may feel like no one is in control, people killing one another , earthquakes ,natural disasters ,lost of loved ones just to mention a few ,but please know that “El Elyon” has perfect control of all that happens in this world and nothing happens that He does not permit . He is the most high God !

  1. Great work! That is the type of info that are supposed to be shared around the net.
    Disgrace on the seek engines for now not positioning this submit upper!
    Come on over and visit my site . Thank you =)

  2. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space
    it out better?
