Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 23 - Evening

God also said to Moses,
I am the Lord. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty, but
by my name the Lord I did not make myself
fully known to them.
I also established my covenant with them to give them the land of Canaan, where they resided as foreigners. Moreover, I have heard the groaning of the Israelites, whom the Egyptians are enslaving, and I have remembered my covenant.
Therefore, say to the Israelites:
I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. I will free you from being slaves to them, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm
and with mighty acts of judgment. I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians. And I will bring you to the land I swore with uplifted hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. I will give it to you as a possession. I am the Lord.’ ” 
- Exodus 6:2-6

I Am the Lord (or, 'ani Yahweh)    

Four times in the Lord’s answer to Moses he states his name. In fact, the Lord’s answer begins and ends with his name “I am the Lord”, or  “ ani Yahweh” in Hebrew.

The four appearances of the Lord's mention of his name includes these details:

  1. He was the one who appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
    1. They only knew him as God Almighty, or El-Shaddai in Hebrew. The point is that this is the same God, but that he is going to reveal more of his nature and more of his plan, so Israel needs to get ready, it is revelation time!
    2. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob knew the Lord as El-Shaddai which means “all sufficient One.” This meant they knew that the Lord provided for them and sustained them as a people. Now, in addition to that, God was going to reveal himself as the redeemer, the one who had a plan, and the one with the power to get it done. The Lord would be the one who delivered the Hebrews, kept the promise of the Covenant to Abraham and revealed his will for their behavior and their future.
    3. This is the God of the Covenant who promised them the land of Canaan. It is time to fulfill that promise. The point here is that Israel needs to get ready to move and take action.
    4. They are groaning under the oppression of the Egyptians and the Lord has “remembered” his covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The point is the Hebrew’s deliverer is ready to take action. The word “remembered" does not mean that God had forgotten, but now has recalled. It means that the time has arrived for God to do what he promised.
  2. God tells Moses to introduce him to the Israelites as “the Lord” (or, ani Yahweh ) and tell them what "the Lord" is going to do before he does it. The Lord is going to:
    1. Bring the Hebrews out from under Egyptian bondage
    2. Free the Hebrews from being slaves
    3. The Lord uses the term “redeem”, which means “buy back” or “regain possession.” The Lord would “redeem” the Hebrews with:
      1. “an outstretched arm”  which refers to a clear historical manifestation of the Lord’s involvement in history where there is no room to use terms like “coincidence” and phrases like “natural random process."  
      2. “mighty acts of judgment,” which is always the result when the Lord, God Almighty, intervenes in history…someone gets judged and punished. This is why Israel will be asked by Amos later around 750 BC, "Why do you long for the day of the Lord?" (Amos 5:18)
    4. “I will take you as my own people.”
    5. “I will be your God.”
  3. After these things, Israel “will know”
    1. What?...what the Lord has done
    2. Who?...that it was the Lord who did it.
    3. With this knowledge (Who and What) Israel will be taken to the land promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Israel will enter the land with full knowledge and full historical evidence that this was God’s direct involvement in history. There would be no room for assigning Israel’s arrival to the Promised Land as the work of some man, or a natural development in the political arena of the nations, or random historical events.
  4. The Lord then signs his name to this message

Notice that in the promise of the New Covenant in Jeremiah 31:31-34 follows a similar pattern.

"Holiness is not the way
to Christ.
Christ is the way
to holiness."

Something to Ponder??

The 1959 movie Ben-Hur was based on a novel written in 1880 by a retired Civil War general named Lew Wallace. Wallace tried to prove Christianity false, but the more he studied scripture and history, the more he believed Christianity was true.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Entrepo (Gr) – Reverence (Eng) – Entrepo is Greek word that means “to shame one,” “to be ashamed,” “to reverence a person,” and, also, “to turn about.” Entrepo is used 9 times in the Greek New Testament. Entrepo is translated “put to shame” in 1 Corinthians 4:14, Titus 2:8, and
2 Thessalonians 3:14. It is translated “respect” 6x including Hebrews 12:9 and Luke 18:2-4; 20:13.

  The royal residence of Saul at Gibeah (1 Sm. 11:4) was only 115 x 170 feet. It was not very elaborate, and was more like a fort than a palace. The artifacts excavated here were nothing more than things used by commoners in any other residence. King Hussein of Jordan began to build a summer palace in the 1960's on the very site (Tell El-Ful) of Saul's archaeological remains and destroyed the site before archaeological excavation could be completed. The Six-Day War interupted and ended the Jordanian's king bulding project. (more details here and here.)
Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I know more about the Lord because of what he has done in my life?
Has experience in the world taught me "who" the Lord is and "what" the Lord can do?
I will study about God, but I will also perceive his presence and direction in my world.

"Do not wear yourself out
to get rich;
    do not trust your own cleverness."
- Proverbs 23:4

Nehemiah's Wall in Jerusalem 445 BC

Details of the south east end of the Temple Mount retaining wall. The portion to the portion labeled "OLD TESTAMENT" was the location of Solomon's original wall. Where the "Wall Bends" is where the Hasmonean's (Maccabees) added on. Herod, beginning in 19 BC joined his extension of the wall at the "Straight Joint." (click on image for larger size)
