The Long Game
And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
- Some food for spiritual thought and meditation:
Although I believe this verse has an end- time connotation that is not THIS particular topic, although it is an important incidental.
I desire to have people understand the spiritual long game that the devil plays while he throws up multitudes of distractions for us.
I pray that you would read what I am writing and try to understand and discern what I am at least TRYING to convey.
The focus is on the part of the verse that says "LORD of hosts".
Point 1: The above verse is from the King James Version which is the translation I use prominently side by side with Strong's Concordance.
Point 2: the word translated "host" in this instance means "creation".
Point 3: whenever we read "LORD" capitalized in this way it means "Jehovah".
I am NOT an undercover Jehovah's Witness nor Messianic Christian, who dogmatically teach it's only permissible to use the Hebrew names of the biblical Creator and Messiah which implies an innate holiness attributed to a language and (POSSIBLY inadvertently) reinforcing a false notion in holy dna (righteousness simply because of Jewish descent).
But here's the encapsulation of it all: The Creator and original writers identified Him as Jehovah. Not "Adonai", or "Lord". Likewise many times in our old testament, "God" is written when the word is Jehovah.
In this world there are many things, beings and idols worshiped as god, creator and lord.
We don't hear in CAPS, so when we hear a message or talk about the god or lord they worship, equating and responsible for their health, wealth, nation, etc, they literally could be referring to ANY host of false gods!
However, there is only ONE "Jehovah of creation".
Similarly, there may be many people who share your name. This is GENERALLY speaking. In PARTICULAR, there is only ONE person with your exact name at your exact residence.
The GENERALIZATION of the PARTICULAR name of our Creator IS NOT coincidental, especially in THIS nation, FOR this time.
It's called "the long game" for the last days and end times.
