the Week of Proper 19 / Ordinary 24
Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Genesis 17:1 (a) This is the first mention of the wonderful title of GOD. By this name He revealed to Abraham His power to supply every need of man, both physical and spiritual. There would be no need of any kind in any human life that could not be met completely and fully by the Eternal GOD who wears the Name "Almighty."
Exodus 6:3 (a) The title in this verse refers to the power of GOD to deliver Israel from their oppressors. He is Lord over every other lord and is able to deliver His own people from every form of oppression.
Psalm 91:1 (a) Here this title is used to describe GOD's power and ability to protect and preserve His children through all the vicissitudes, troubles, sorrows and problems of life.
2 Corinthians 6:18 (a) This title describes the GOD who is able to supply every temporal need of His own people who refuse the provision of this world, and refuse to accept deliverance or provision from the children of Satan. Those who sever themselves from a place of dependence from the world and reject Satan's schemes, find that GOD is able to furnish them with all their necessities.
Revelation 1:8 (a) In this passage the Lord JESUS is given the title because of His sovereign ability to begin everything, and to make everything, to sustain everything, and to bring everything to an end. It describes His power to judge everything and everybody. Nothing is beyond the reach of His power.
