Wesley's Notes for Exodus 3:15


3:15 The Lord God of our fathers hath sent me unto you - Thus God made himself known, that he might revive among them the religion of their fathers, which was much decayed, and almost lost. And that he might raise their expectations of the speedy performance of the promises made unto their fathers: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are particularly named, because with Abraham the covenant was first made, and with Isaac and Jacob oft expressly renewed, and these three were distinguished from their brethren, and chosen to be the trustees of the covenant. This God will have to be his name for ever, and it has been, is, and will be his name, by which his worshippers know him, and distinguish him from all false gods.

    15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The Sovering Lord , JEHOVAH" the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

    To Insight 777:
    “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. Mat 5:17. Read Acts 6:13. What you quoted (verse 14) are false accusations. Jesus was talking about the temple of His body that will be resurrected in three days. To the Hebrews this was the "pay-back time" after years of slavery. Sometimes God (not Moses) works in strange ways.
  • Insight777
    V22, spoil means rob, these "borrowed" treasures are not going to be returned. Where is the forgiveness of ones enemy that Jesus preached? Acts 6, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:14 For we have heard him say, that this Jesus of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us." Jesus changes Moses law.

    Exodus is my favorite book;because it tells of I am grace,goodness, and genuineness forever.
  • A disciple
    (7-10) In that the LORD did these things, and let the rest of the world continue; indicates that it was a sign of the Great Deliverance and Salvation at the end of days: for Israel was to set as a sign for blessing and spiritual guidance to the world, up to that day; but they knew it not. (19-22) As it was with bringing Israel out of Egypt, so for us in the end time: God will save us by His Power!
  • Lilian Makau
    Its such a great revelation to know that we need to ask God what to say just like Moses when faced with situations.
