Lord of heaven and earth

Jesus (Yeshua‘) prayed to His Father using the name Lord of heaven and earth. Paul also referred to God this way when he spoke to the leaders of Athens. This is one of the many names of God that tell of the extent of His reign. Some names focus on His dominion over the earth, others state His spiritual dominion. This name says that He is Lord of both realms.
