Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
One of the glorious characters of JEHOVAH. Hence, in reference to this perfection, the Psalmist invites the whole creation of God to "worship and bow down and kneel, before the Lord our Maker." (Psalms 95:6) So again the prophet Isaiah, (Isaiah 52:12-13) "Who art thou that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die and of the son of man which shall be made as grass; and forgettest the Lord thy Maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth!" It is not a little interesting, but highly important to be kept in view, that the act itself is connected with the glorious and fearful name of JEHOVAH-ALEHIM, (see Deuteronomy 28:58) to intimate the plurality of persons in the GODHEAD. As for example, (Genesis 1:26) it is there expressed; "And God said, Let us make man after our image, after our likeness." And accordingly in the following verse it is said, "So God created man m his own image." And elsewhere, the church is called upon to remember the Lord under this threefold character of persons in the plural of the word. Remember thy Creators. (Ecclesiastes 12:1) So again in Job, (Job 35:10) the word is plural, where is God my Makers? And yet that the church night never lose sight of the unity of the divine Essence, while thus believing in the existence of a threefold character of person in the GODHEAD, the Lord, by Moses, delivered this glorious fundamental truth in the plainest and strongest terms; "Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord!" (Deuteronomy 6:4) Oh! that these sacred, hallowed truths, were both duly and reverently considered and pondered over, agreeably to their immense sublimity, in these days of Arian and Socinian blasphemy!
