How can we define the indefinable? How can we describe the indescribable?
 
The meaning of the words “majesty,” “splendor,” “glory,” “power,” “might,” and “strength” are intertwined. Through the generations Bible translators have used all these words in their attempts to summarize His absolute, eternal abilities. For this reason, the passages following are offered in the order in which they appear in the Bible, regardless of which words are used.
 
Focus on the reality that the One Who Thunders With All Majesty, Splendor, Glory, Power, and Strength, Pure Power Himself, exalted throughout the nations by the Name I AM, desires that you call Him Father ― and you will be richly blessed.
 
Because He is your Perfect Father, He will use all His abilities to protect you from all harm. The section He Protects fits perfectly with this topic.
 
Yet, you will be even more impressed when you consider this ―
 
Would you agree that while demonstration of power is remarkable, even more awesome is the holding back of power. The self-discipline of not wielding the power you possess displays greater strength than using your power to destroy. Do you agree?
 
You will see in the section Jesus As Word that Jesus is God. Here is one key passage:
 
John 1:1-13
    1In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.
    2He was present originally with God.
    3All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.
    4In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men.
    5And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it [put it out or absorbed it or appropriated it, and is unreceptive to it].
    6There came a man sent from God, whose name was John.
    7This man came to witness, that he might testify of the Light, that all men might believe in it [adhere to it, trust it, and rely upon it] through him.
    8He was not the Light himself, but came that he might bear witness regarding the Light.
    9There it was--the true Light [was then] coming into the world [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] that illumines every person.
    10He came into the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him [did not know Him].
    11He came to that which belonged to Him [to His own--His domain, creation, things, world], and they who were His own did not receive Him and did not welcome Him.
    12But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name--
    13Who owe their birth neither to bloods nor to the will of the flesh [that of physical impulse] nor to the will of man [that of a natural father], but to God. [They are born of God!]
 

God sent Jesus to Mankind on a very specific mission. God sent Jesus to earth to die.
 
You can read about this in greater detail in the section called Jesus’ Mission. Jesus’ mission is also summarized well in Isaiah 53, next. It’s important to note that as He sent Jesus, He gave Jesus the same free will that you enjoy. In other words, although Jesus was sent to die, death was Jesus’ choice. When He moved forward toward the agonizing death of the cross, He did so willingly.
 
If you consider these next points while still focusing on power, majesty, splendor, glory, and ability, you will better understand what Jesus’ sacrifice entailed.
 
Consider that Jesus perfectly represented all aspects of God.
 
Colossians 2:9
    9For in Him [Jesus] the whole fullness of Deity (the Godhead) continues to dwell in bodily form [giving complete expression of the divine nature].
 
Colossians 1:15
    15[Now] He [Jesus] is the exact likeness of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible]; He is the Firstborn of all creation.


Hebrews 1:3
    3He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God's] nature,
upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high,

Yet, Jesus laid all this aside when He became a Man. Part of His mission as Man was to live a sinless life unempowered by His own inherent abilities. [Because Jesus is, was, and always will be, His abilities, strength, power, have resided within Him as aspects of Him eternally.]
 
As the next verse explains, Jesus stripped Himself of His abilities.
 
Philippians 2:7-8
    7But [Jesus] stripped Himself [of all privileges and rightful dignity], so as to assume the guise of a servant (slave), in that He became like men and was born a human being.
    8And after He [Jesus] had appeared in human form, He abased and humbled Himself [still further] and carried His obedience to the extreme of death, even the death of the cross!
 

As He was facing the thought of death, He said:
 
Matthew 26:53
    53Do you suppose that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will immediately provide Me with more than twelve legions [more than 80,000] of angels?
 

With the reality that Jesus vibrates with all power, all authority, all ability, read these next passages from Isaiah 52 and 53. As you do, you’ll better realize the Self-discipline Jesus showed when He did not retaliate.
 
Retaliate? Yes. In the next verse “plucked off the hair” means “brutally pulled his beard from his face” [the English idiom is “pulled his hair out by the roots.”]
 
Isaiah 50:6
    6 I gave My back to the smiters [torturers] and My cheeks to those who plucked off the hair; I hid not My face from shame and spitting.
 

Far worse, death by crucifixion was the most painful, agonizing, torturous death invented by Man. Doctors have written detailed explanations of the agonizing torture within and extreme pain which occurred within Jesus’ body as He died.
 
Realizing that Jesus possessed all power and He willfully withheld it all, read these passages:
 
Isaiah 52:14-15
    14[For many the Servant of God became an object of horror; many were astonished at Him.] His face and His whole appearance were marred more than any man's, and His form beyond that of the sons of men--but just as many were astonished at Him,
    15So shall He startle and sprinkle many nations [with His Blood], and kings shall shut their mouths because of Him; for that which has not been told them shall they see, and that which they have not heard shall they consider and understand.
 
Isaiah 53:All
    1Who has believed (trusted in, relied upon, and clung to) our message [of that which was revealed to us]? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been disclosed?
    2For [the Servant of God, Jesus] grew up before Him like a tender plant, and like a root out of dry ground; He has no form or comeliness [royal, kingly pomp], that we should look at Him, and no beauty that we should desire Him.
    3He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him.
    4Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy].
    5But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
    6All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has made to light upon Him the guilt and iniquity of us all.
    7He was oppressed, [yet when] He was afflicted, He was submissive and opened not His mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth.
    8By oppression and judgment He was taken away; and as for His generation, who among them considered that He was cut off out of the land of the living [stricken to His death] for the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?
    9And they assigned Him a grave with the wicked, and with a rich man in His death, although He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth.
    10Yet it was the will of the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief and made Him sick. When You and He make His life an offering for sin [and He has risen from the dead, in time to come], He shall see His [spiritual] offspring, He shall prolong His days, and the will and pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
    11He shall see [the fruit] of the travail of His soul and be satisfied; by His knowledge of Himself [which He possesses and imparts to others] shall My [uncompromisingly] righteous One, My Servant, justify many and make many righteous (upright and in right standing with God), for He shall bear their iniquities and their guilt [with the consequences, says the Lord].
    12Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great [kings and rulers], and He shall divide the spoil with the mighty, because He poured out His life unto death, and [He let Himself] be regarded as a criminal and be numbered with the transgressors; yet He bore [and took away] the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors (the rebellious).
 

Now, let’s focus on the “majesty,” “splendor,” “glory,” “power,” “might” and “strength” of I AM.

    22It is God Who sits above the circle (the horizon) of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; it is He Who stretches out the heavens like [gauze] curtains and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in,
    23Who brings dignitaries to nothing, Who makes the judges and rulers of the earth as chaos (emptiness, falsity, and futility).
    24Yes, these men are scarcely planted, scarcely are they sown, scarcely does their stock take root in the earth, when [the Lord] blows upon them and they wither, and the whirlwind or tempest takes them away like stubble.

    31But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

Isaiah 42:1-9
     1Behold, My Servant, Whom I uphold, My elect in Whom My soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice and right and reveal truth to the nations.

    3A bruised reed He will not break, and a dimly burning wick He will not quench; He will bring forth justice in truth.
    4He will not fail or become weak or be crushed and discouraged till He has established justice in the earth; and the islands and coastal regions shall wait hopefully for Him and expect His direction and law.
    5Thus says God the Lord--He Who created the heavens and stretched them forth, He Who spread abroad the earth and that which comes out of it, He Who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it:
    6I the Lord have called You [the Messiah] for a righteous purpose and in righteousness; I will take You by the hand and will keep You; I will give You for a covenant to the people for a light to the nations,
    7To open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon, and those who sit in darkness from the prison.
    8 I AM the Lord; that is My name! And My glory I will not give to another, nor My praise to graven images.
    9Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.
 
Isaiah 43:4-7
    4Because you are precious in My sight and honored, and because I love you, I will give men in return for you and peoples in exchange for your life.

    6I will say to the north, Give up! and to the south, Keep not back. Bring My sons from afar and My daughters from the ends of the earth--
    7Even everyone who is called by My name, whom I have created for My glory, whom I have formed, whom I have made.
 
Isaiah 43:16
    16Thus says the Lord, Who makes a way through the sea and a path through the mighty waters
 
Isaiah 44:9-20
    9All who make graven idols are confusion, chaos, and worthlessness. Their objects (idols) in which they delight do not profit them, and their own witnesses (worshipers) do not see or know, so that they are put to shame.
    10Who is [such a fool as] to fashion a god or cast a graven [handmade] image that is profitable for nothing?
    11Behold, all his fellows shall be put to shame, and the craftsmen, [how can they make a god?] they are but men. Let them all be gathered together, let them stand forth; they shall be terrified, they shall be put to shame together.
    12The ironsmith sharpens and uses a chisel and works it over the coals; he shapes [the core of the idol] with hammers and forges it with his strong arm. He becomes hungry and his strength fails; he drinks no water and is faint.
    13The carpenter stretches out a line, he marks it out with a pencil or red ocher; he fashions [an idol] with planes and marks it out with the compasses; and he shapes it to have the figure of a man, with the beauty of a man, that it may dwell in a house.
    14He hews for himself cedars, and takes the holm tree and the oak and lets them grow strong for himself among the trees of the forest; he plants a fir tree or an ash, and the rain nourishes it.
    15Then it becomes fuel for a man to burn; a part of it he takes and warms himself, yes, he kindles a fire and bakes bread. [Then out of the remainder] he also makes a god and worships it! He [with his own hands] makes it into a graven image and falls down and worships it!
    16He burns part of the wood in the fire; with part of it he [cooks and] eats flesh, he roasts meat and is satisfied. Also he warms himself and says, Aha! I am warm, I have seen the fire!
    17And from what is left [of the log] he makes a god, his graven idol. He falls down to it, he worships it and prays to it and says, Deliver me, for you are my god!
    18They do not know or understand, for their eyes God has let become besmeared so that they cannot see, and their minds as well so that they cannot understand.
    19And no one considers in his mind, nor has he knowledge and understanding [enough] to say [to himself], I have burned part of this log in the fire, and also I have baked bread on its coals and have roasted meat and eaten it. And shall I make the remainder of it into an abomination [the very essence of what is disgusting, detestable, and shamefully vile in the eyes of a jealous God]? Shall I fall down and worship the stock of a tree [a block of wood without consciousness or life]?
    20That kind of man feeds on ashes [and finds his satisfaction in ashes]! A deluded mind has led him astray, so that he cannot release and save himself, or ask, Is not [this thing I am holding] in my right hand a lie?
 
Isaiah 44:24
    24Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and He Who formed you from the womb: I AM the Lord, Who made all things, Who alone stretched out the heavens, Who spread out the earth by Myself [who was with Me]?

Isaiah 48:11
    11For My own sake, for My own sake, I do it [I refrain and do not utterly destroy My people]; for why should I permit My Name to be polluted and profaned [which it would be if the Lord completely destroyed His chosen people]? And I will not give My glory to another [by permitting the worshipers of idols to triumph over you].
 
Isaiah 49:24-25
    24Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captives of the just be delivered?
    25For thus says the Lord: Even the captives of the mighty will be taken away, and the prey of the terrible will be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will give safety to your children and ease them.
 
Isaiah 51:12-15
    12 I, even I, AM He Who comforts you. Who are you, that you should be afraid of man, who shall die, and of a son of man, who shall be made [as destructible] as grass,
    13That you should forget the Lord your Maker, Who stretched forth the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, and fear continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, when he makes ready to destroy or even though he did so? And where is the fury of the oppressor?
    14The captive exile and he who is bent down by chains shall speedily be released; and he shall not die and go down to the pit of destruction, nor shall his food fail.
    15For I AM the Lord your God, Who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar and Who by rebuke restrains it--the Lord of hosts is His Name.
 
Isaiah 52:6
    6Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I AM He who speaks; behold, I AM!
 
Isaiah 54:1-4
    1 Sing, O barren one, you who did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you who did not travail with child! For the [spiritual] children of the desolate one will be more than the children of the married wife, says the Lord.
    2Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; spare not; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes,
    3For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left; and your offspring will possess the nations and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
    4Fear not, for you shall not be ashamed; neither be confounded and depressed, for you shall not be put to shame. For you shall forget the shame of your youth, and you shall not [seriously] remember the reproach of your widowhood any more.

 
Isaiah 54:17
    17But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.
 
Isaiah 58:5-11
     5Is such a fast as yours what I have chosen, a day for a man to humble himself with sorrow in his soul? [Is true fasting merely mechanical?] Is it only to bow down his head like a bulrush and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him [to indicate a condition of heart that he does not have]? Will you call this a fast and an acceptable day to the Lord?
    6[Rather] is not this the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every [enslaving] yoke?
    7Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house--when you see the naked, that you cover him, and that you hide not yourself from [the needs of] your own flesh and blood?
    8Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
    9Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, Here I AM. If you take away from your midst yokes of oppression [wherever you find them], the finger pointed in scorn [toward the oppressed or the godly], and every form of false, harsh, unjust, and wicked speaking,
    10And if you pour out that with which you sustain your own life for the hungry and satisfy the need of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in darkness, and your obscurity and gloom become like the noonday.
    11And the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy you in drought and in dry places and make strong your bones. And you shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not.
 
Isaiah 60:1-5
    1Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you--rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!
    2For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you, and His glory shall be seen on you.
    3And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
    4Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms.
    5Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and tremble with joy [at the glorious deliverance] and be enlarged; because the abundant wealth of the Sea shall be turned to you, unto you shall the nations come with their treasures.
 
Isaiah 60:17
   17Instead of bronze I will bring gold, and instead of iron I will bring silver; and instead of wood, bronze, and instead of stones, iron. [Instead of the tyranny of the present] I will appoint peace as your officers and righteousness as your taskmasters.
