The Names Of God- Jehovah Sabaoth

Each month throughout 2020 I'm posting a little rhyming couplet that looks at one or two of the names of God and their meanings. My hope is that they can be an easy way to help memorise just some of the many different names of God! The name for the month of July is Jehovah Sabaoth.

Children Of Wrath

The inspiration for my poem “Children Of Wrath” came in fragments over the course of about a year. It was very much a combination of opinions that I was hearing from various different people that got me thinking.

One opinion I kept hearing expressed was the idea that every human being on Earth is a “Child of God” and that everyone created is automatically God’s child from birth. As appealing as this thought is, it’s not actually Biblically correct. The Bible tells us very clearly that we’re all born separated from God due to the issue of sin and that we’re actually “children of wrath.” It’s only when we repent and accept that Jesus paid for our sin on the Cross that we then become a child of God.

We read in the first few verses of Ephesians 2 that before we became Christians, we were all “dead in trespasses and sins” and “were by nature children of wrath.” This shows us clearly that although we had physical life we didn’t have spiritual life until we accepted Jesus as our Saviour. John 1:12 also tells us,

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.”

Poetry Prayer for July

July's Poetry Prayer is a little couplet asking the Lord for protection as we continue through these crazy times. I feel it's such a privilege to know that our Heavenly Father never takes His eyes off of His children and is interested in every minute of our day! What a wonderful God we serve.
