HEAR, O ISRAEL, THE LORD YOUR GOD IS ONE LORD by Michael

O great God, I bless thee with honour and glory, great strength and power beseech thee, exceedingly great glory beseech thee and magnify thy name. Thy beauty is everywhere and none is more beautiful than thee. Thou art the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valleys. Behold thou art Almighty God. By thy hand all things were created. And there is nothing that was created that was not created by thee. Thy works are marvelous. In all the earth men marvel at thy mighty wonders. Who can light up the heavens with thy beauty? Great lights thou created, some for the night and for the day. Truly thy hand is a blessed hand. You have shown me thy ways and I believe that thou art God. I have seen great glory which only you can do. All things were established in truth for thy glory. Thy pleasure blossoms in all the land. Even the heaven of heavens praise thy name. You are the master of the universe: what you say goes. All must bow to thee. Thy name is excellent in all the earth. Wonderful is the LORD. Great riches are in thy right hand. If God has ordained it, shall a man say otherwise? I will lift up thy name in Zion. Beautiful things I shall declare in thy name. Terrible things thou have done for thy people: will thy works be in vain?Let them not say, The works of God is without honour. Honour and glory must come to thee. Great exaltation must beseech thy throne. If the LORD is God, surely my days shall be long in the land which the LORD giveth. As long as I live I shall praise his blessed name. As long as the LORD lives his name shall be glorify. The LORD liveth forever. Who then is LORD and God, but he who liveth forever? If there is another who lives forever, then let him say so. But there is none but one God. Hear, O Israel: the LORD your God is one LORD (Deuteronomy 6:4). If there was another he would have told us so.

I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth. Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him. Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears. Let all the nations be gathered together, and let all the people be assembled: who are among them can declare this, and shew us former things? Let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth. You are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant who I have chosen: that you may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be any after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared and I have saved; and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore you are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work and who shall let it? (Isaiah 43:6 – 13).

Will you turn to another who cannot save, nor deliver you from unrighteousness? There is only one whose hand is with power and strength, the great God of Israel. Did not our forefathers spoke of him, how he delivered them out of bondage and made a mockery of their enemies? By his hand great glory came to the people of Israel. “Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God is one LORD.” And all others are like the dust of the earth, blown by the wind, without purpose, honour, and glory, a great vanity to be cast into deep pits. It is a disgrace to serve these useless gods. And they that serve them are like unto them. They cannot speak, nor walk, nor hear the things that are uttered before them, nor can they see those who follow after them foolishly. They are a desolation to those that follow them, a great travesty for the blind. The true, and living God is the light of the world. Those who follow after him shall see. But these idols to whom they worship are vanity, a great deception for men without wisdom. All other gods are vanity that shall go down in the deepest pit. There shall they find their glory. But the LORD my God of righteousness; the great and mighty God, the terrible God shall have honour and glory and great exaltation in Zion. Forever shall his name be lifted up on High. We will lift up his name in all the earth. Even in Zion shall his name be lifted up with great glory on High. Glory to the most High God. Yea, I tell you the truth, the great God of Israel is God and there is no other God. The LORD of hosts: the Creator of all things heaven and earth is God. Give glory to God. Give glory to whom glory is due.
