He’s Melech Ha Olam!

Revelation 17:14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful."

Just about every Hebrew prayer begins by saying, “Baruch Ata Adonai, Eloheinu Melech Ha Olam” which, translated, means, Blessed are you O Lord our God, King of the Universe. Now think about it, King of the Universe! Wikipedia defines "universe" as, "the composition of all the planets, stars, galaxies, the contents of intergalactic space, and all matter and energy". Hmm…that’s a lot to be king over!

So He’s the King over hundreds of billions of stars, and hundreds of millions of galaxies – the King of everything! Now, this might make this King seem somewhat "out of reach" for you and me. But He's not. Because this King decided to walk into His universe as a little human being so that He could relate to us better. He's big. Bigger than you can imagine. But He's also accessible because He made Himself small too.

So, don't worry. The distance and size of God are not a problem for Him or for you. He knows and understands all your thoughts, worries, your fears, your anxieties, and your troubles! And “If God is for us, who can be against us?” So be at peace my friend, and let Him take care of it all. He truly is “Melech Ha Olam” – the King of the Universe, but He's also your best and closest friend.

We're being CENSORED ... HELP get the WORD OUT! SHARE!!!

  1. Thank you for this devotional teaching. I am currently studying the Names of God. This devotional is very helpful. I'm not sure how to pronounce the Hebrew Names of God. Do you may have a dvd or know of such a dvd? Thank you Shalom and God Bless

  2. I am trying to recreate the eve of an Israelite family in Goshen, going to eat their roasted lamb as part of a larger story, since here we find the first symbol of the lamb of God and the importance of His shed blood. Also the fact that they were to stay indoors for the whole night. I wanted the father to start reciting the prayer before the meal although perhaps he would pray afterward instead of before? Anyway, I just needed the start of this prayer in Hebrew and the Holy Spirit brought two words "Melech, Olam" I had heard in songs, to my memory. Not knowing what they meant I typed them into the search engine and it took me directly to the commencement of the Jewish prayer on your page. I am so amazed at God directing me to not only the meaning of those words but the whole commencement of nearly all prayers which was exactly what I needed. I also noticed that you explain that in this prayer God is called the God of the Universe. I had tried to find the Hebrew word for Universe or king of the Universe but could not. And here I am finding the answer to that as well. I did not even pray about that. Can you tell me which word in this prayer refers to Universe, this whole domain of God? or is it contained in the title Eloheinu? I would like to use this word regularly in my story. With grateful thanks.
