Another Old Testament name of God is El SHADDAI and the King James Version of the Bible translates that as GOD ALMIGHTY.
EL SHADDAI is first used in the Bible in Genesis 17:1 as quoted above.
EL is translated as God and can be used with other words to show certain aspects of God’s character.
Some other Bible references to El Shaddai are: Genesis 28:3, Genesis 35:11, Genesis 43:14 and Genesis 48:3.
El Shaddai is also referred to as the God who is more than enough.
Everything God does is over the top.
He is more than enough, a surplus, super abundant God that will give you more than enough so that you can share your supernatural blessing from the Lord with others.
How wonderful is that?
Let’s go back to Abraham’s original calling from El Shaddai.
“Now the Lord had said unto Abram. Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee.” Genesis 12:1
Abraham was living with his family in Ur of the Chaldees about 100 miles southeast of Babylon near the Euphrates River and the people of that area worshipped the moon god Including Abraham’s family.
So you see that God could not allow Abraham to remain in that area of idolatry and sin so God had to call him out to a different place.
But God saw something in Abraham that He liked and wanted to make Abraham the father of the Jewish race.
Sometimes in your life for one reason or another God cannot allow you to stay where you are and will ask you to follow Him even when you don’t know where you are going.
This is exactly what happened to Abraham, God told him to leave Ur of the Chaldees and just start walking and God would tell him where to stop.
However the God that is more than enough El Shaddai gave Abraham a promise if he would follow God’s direction for his life: “And I will make thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12:2-3
We know that Abraham was obedient to God and left Ur of the Chaldees and allowed the Lord to direct his paths to where God wanted him to be.
One of the main points I want to make in this teaching on the Old Testament covenant names of God is that the God of Abraham is the same God of today and He loves you as much as He did Abraham.
Another point I want to make in this teaching on the Old Testament covenant names of God is that if you are obedient to God’s direction in your life you will experience the God that is more than enough EL SHADDAI. He is the same God that promised and did bless Abraham and his seed so abundantly.
That same over abundant God, El Shaddai will bless you over abundantly also in every area of your life as you are obedient to Him.
I can prove what I just said:
“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.” Isaiah 1:19
Let me say this about the verse I just quoted, you can be obedient but not willing at the same time.
I know that sounds like I am talking out of both sides of my mouth, or you could say it sounds like you are double talking but I am not.
Here is my explanation.
We will say God had called you to do something and you do not want to do it and maybe really hate the thought of doing it but out of obedience to God you say to yourself, “I don’t like it but I will do it just to say I did it.”
I want you to know that is not good enough for God.
According to God’s Word Abraham did not do that, He was asked to leave Ur of the Chaldees where he lived and he did it and was absolutely willing to do what he did and the blessing flowed to Abraham from EL SHADDAI.
So it is possible to be obedient and not willing at the same time and miss the blessing of God.
Look at the verse I just quoted above, doesn’t it say WILLING AND OBEDIENT?
It does NOT say WILLING OR OBEDIENT?
So if God has asked you to do something and you have been obedient but not willing you will miss out on God’s blessings unless you asked Him for forgiveness and change your attitude toward what He has called you to do and then do it.
That’s the way it works with God it is NOT “let’s make a deal.”
There is a scripture in the New Testament that I believe personifies EL SHADDAI, the ALMIGHTY GOD, THE GOD THAT IS MORE THAN ENOUGH.
“Not unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Ephesians 3:20
In the Amplified Version of the Bible it states:
“Now to Him who is able to (carry out His purpose and) do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think (infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams), according to His power that is at work within us.)” Ephesians 3:20 Amplified Version of the Bible
That adds some real emphasis on this scripture and makes you see that EL SHADDAI always blesses us to a degree that is beyond our being able to measure it in any way.
Let’s look at the opening scripture that I gave you on this teaching:
“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the ALMIGHTY GOD; walk before me, and be thou perfect. (mature in the Lord). And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and I will multiply thee exceedingly.” Genesis 17:1-2
This verse that is quoted above is when Abraham was 99 years old. However when the Lord first called Abraham and told him the blessings he would receive if he was willing and obedient to do what the Lord called him to do Abraham was 75 years old and Sarah 65 years old.
Which brings up another issue that you will have to deal with in your life as a follower of Jesus Christ.
Abraham had already waited for 24 years since God first told him that he would build a nation out of Abraham and still Abraham and Sarah did not have any children from both of them that was originally promised to them.
From the time God promises something to you until you see the manifestation of it is not easy but it is called faith and confidence in His Word and this is what Abraham had.
I know in our lives that God has promised many things and we have received them just as the Lord told us.
However there are some things that the Lord has talked to Nita and I about in different ways that have not manifested yet.
But regardless of whether we have seen the promise with our eyes Nita and I continue to believe God and His Word because we believe in God’s character the great, EL SHADDAI.
What He has promised He will deliver, which is exactly what Abraham did and at 100 years old for him and Sarah then being 90 years old Isaac the promised son was born.
The Bible has something to say about this time of waiting:
“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of patience, that after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.” Hebrews 10:35
Abraham believed in THE ALMIGHTY GOD, THE GREAT EL SHADDAI and look what happened. God was faithful like always and the promise of Isaac came to pass along with many other blessings along the way as they kept their faith in the Lord.
I pray that you will get a revelation in your spirit that the same God, El Shaddai that Abraham heard from is the same God of today that you live in and that the Lord still wants to bless you just like the promises He gave to Abraham and Sarah.
EL SHADDAI THE GOD WHO IS MORE THAN ENOUGH, THE OVERFLOWING BLESSING GOD THAT WANTS TO BLESS YOU WITH OVERFLOWING BLESSINGS.

We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE YET FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.
