Glory Hallelu-YAH!

20 01 2017

la-et-ms-trump-inaugural-concert-pg-015President Donald J. Trump was inaugurated today. Glory Hallelu-YAH! I say that not to honor him but to honor Yehovah God. The six prayers spoken by five Christian leaders and one Jewish Rabbi, were the most ever at a Presidential Inauguration.

Fireworks on the eve of the swearing-in were accompanied by a powerful chorale singing the Battle Hymn of the Republic. Here is a LINK to the video in case you missed it. Here are two of the stanzas that moved me to tears:

Mine eyes have seen the glory
of the coming of the lord,
He is trampling out the vintage
where the grapes of wrath are stored,
He hath loosed his fateful lightning
of His terrible swift sword,
His truth is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on

In the beauty of the lilies
Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in his bosom
that transfigures you and me,
As He died to make men holy
let us live to make men free,
His truth is marching on

Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah
Glory! Glory ! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on

The international (Hebrew) word of praise to the Almighty God, Hallelujah, contains the short form of God’s personal covenant name. Jah, or Yah, is short for Yehovah, which occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text of the Old Testament (Tanach). Few know His name because it is nearly always mistranslated as LORD (all caps). It is my sincere belief that Yehovah is restoring His name to His people, both Christians and Jews. Even the Talmud says it will be use again in the Messianic Age. My latest book, The Hebrew God Who Has No Name, explains the full story and the scriptural basis for its restoration in these days.

I was also moved to tears by the prayer of Rabbi Hier highlighting the importance of Jerusalem.

The first orthodox Rabbi to give benediction at a US presidential inauguration cited a psalm highlighting Jerusalem at Friday’s ceremony.

Rabbi Marvin Hier —  the 77-year-old founder and dean of the Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center — said in his prayer for President Donald Trump: “Bless all of our allies around the world who share our beliefs, ‘By the rivers of Babylon, we wept as we remember Zion…If I forget you O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill’ (Psalm 137).”

Pray for President Trump and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

(New explanation for why I use God’s literal covenant Name: Yehovah. Here is a link to the best simple explanation I know, from my friend, Keith Johnson.)
