"For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, [are called]: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence." 1 Corinthians 1:25-29 (KJV)

Who is Yehovah-Asah? Psalm 95 is a Psalm of praise, worship, thanksgiving and exaltation directed toward Father God our maker. In this Psalm we are taught to bow down on our knees to worship God.

“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.” Psalm 95:6 (KJV)

There are three significant Hebrew words here. The word ‘worship’ is translated from the Hebrew word SHACHAH meaning to sink down and to prostrate oneself in worship. The words ‘bow down’ are translated from the Hebrew word KARA meaning to kneel down. The word 'kneel' is translated from the Hebrew word BARAK meaning to bless, praise and salute. What is interesting here is that the scripture is saying we should bow down, bow down, bow down before our maker the self-existent one. Let us analyze this further.

In this scripture BARAK refers to invoking, celebrating and adoring God. KARA refers simply to falling down upon the knees or kneeling down, but SHACHAH refers to prostrating or falling upon the face physically (and I must remark, with the back of the neck becoming vulnerable), and implies doing homage or sinking down from the inner being as well. The scripture says:

“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.” Psalm 51:17 (KJV)

We are to use this prostrate position to demonstrate our total and complete submission to God our maker. The word ‘maker’ is translated from the Hebrew word ASAH, which refers directly to fashioning and making something by pressing and squeezing it. ASAH also refers to producing or fabricating something using labor, but, producing, preparing and completing that thing from one’s own personal labor. This is a perfect picture of God the potter and us the clay.

Yehovah Asah is the self existent one our maker. We are to kneel down on our knees, adore God, put our faces to the ground and lower our inner being in reverence to Him. This is the ultimate sign of humility and submission, sacrifice and contrition before God our maker.

God Bless You!
