Exodus Chapter 6 Discussion

  • GiGi - In Reply on Exodus 6 - 2 years ago
    Thanks Bro Dan. My other one finally would not even turn on. So I have been trying to use my older I phone which has really small keys and screen. Was frustrating. So, had my birthday last weekend, and got a new laptop. WooHoo!

    Being retired and still need to rest my aching back throughout the day. I bought a new laptop a little over a year ago and it has been so helpful as I have to pass time in my recliner so much. I was able to participate on this site and to search many topics of many sites to increase my knowledge of God's Word and work throughout history. Been quite fruitful for me. So, not being online much this past month or so has been a bummer. But I am thankful we were able to buy a new laptop.

    I am filling journals with my findings and thoughts. That way, I can reference these when I wish to respond to someone's post here or speak with someone I know when we visit. i don't go out much because of covid and only meet with a few friends and family members. God has kept me well from viruses since March of 2020, which helps me control my asthma without exacerbations.

    I am glad to see you back on the forum. There are a handful of folks we haven't heard from for a few weeks. You were one of them that I was wondering about. I have been praying for these posters and hope they come back to posting soon. I appreciate hearing their viewpoints and am helped by their contributions.

    Be blessed today, Bro Dan.

    Praise the Lord! Glad to be able to get back into Exodus now that I have a new laptop! Thank You LORD GOD!

    In this chapter, God speaks again to Moses. He explains to Moses that Abraham, Isaac and Jacob knew Him as Almighty God but not as YHWH (I AM WHO I AM). God reveals more of Himself with each name He gives of Himself to those He chooses to reveal it to for the purposes He wishes to accomplish in the lives of the people (person) He will work in and through. Here, God is saying that He is the same God that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knew; that He is the same God going back to the beginning of time, and eternally before time, and eternally forward. With Moses' background, He may not have been taught by His Israelite parents and community growing up. His knowledge of God must have been rather sparse when he fled to Midian at age 40. His father in law, Jethro, was a priest of the Most High. Now Moses was meeting with God and given the name YHWH. Maybe God needed to assure Moses that He was Almighty God, Most High God, Elohim, YHWH as the Only True God. In a world of polytheism, Moses may have thought these names indicated different gods. But In this chapter, God is saying He is YHWH, also known as Almighty God, Most High, Elohim. Moses was learning about God as he went forward in the work God was charging him with. It goes to show us that we do not need to know much about God to turn to Him and be saved. He will lead us in our discovery of who He is and what He has done as we walk in faith and obedience. God explains how He will be the God of the Israelites and they will be His chosen people according to the covenant He made

    The remainder of the chapter is a a genealogy showing Moses' descent from Levi. Also, I names the male descendants of Reuben, Simeon and Levi (Jacobs first three sons, born to Leah). These men were to be leaders as God leads the Israelites out of Egypt by His mighty hand go.and outstretched arm. He will strongarm Pharaoh into letting his people

    Hi Darold , I've heard many great exhortations on this subject , I can only tell you what I believe . Here goes : to me our cross is a burden , the greatest burden I have , the thing that stops me from being the Christian that I want to be is.....me . My existence in this sinfull flesh . My sinfull self in this life of flesh is my biggest burden . I have to eat drink sleep , I have numerous health problems that make daily life for me painful and exhausting , so I can't read the Bible as much as I wish , I can't do the good things that I should be doing , then there is my own desires or lusts if you prefer . I get tangled up in other people's emotions , people that I care about , I worry about them , I say and do things that I shouldn't really but I justify myself in a million sinfull excuses . I am my own burden . My sinfull flesh . This is Christ victory . This is the brassen serpent in the wilderness , this is the serpent in the garden of Eden . This is Christ's enormous and fantastic and awesome and beautiful gift . Greater love hath no man than that . He did it all for us . He did it out of love . Love for us and for his Father and ours , the Holy One of Israel .

    Exodus 6:2,3, "And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them."

    Jehovah, or Yahweh (YHWH) is the Hebrew word for the LORD GOD. It's meaning is: "the active self existent One". However, since YHWH cannot be correctly pronounced by the Jews, they refrain from speaking out God's Name lest they find themselves in serious error before God. Even in their writing in English, usually God is written as, G_d, for a similar reason.

    As well, we have 'compound' Names for Yahweh: e.g. Yahweh-Yireh (The LORD Who provides); Yahweh-Ropheka (The LORD Who heals); etc. However, in English we just use the generic name, God, or Lord God & in the KJV, when Yahweh is referred to, the words are capitalized to indicate this. I don't believe we err in any way, by referring to our Great God & Saviour as simply 'God': He is unconcerned by which Name we prefer to use (& different languages will have their own words to refer to God), rather that we reverence Him & get to know Him for Who He is, for what He has done & what He will do in the future.

    Why was god also called jehovah?
  • Bendito Palavra - In Reply on Exodus 6:3 - 3 years ago
    Strong's gives the definition for the name of JEHOVAH as "(the) self-Existent or Eternal". This is essentially what the LORD said to Moses in Exodus 3:14, "And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."

    Previously he was called upon by names that referred to his interactions with his people, (Lord God, most high God, God seest me, etc.) .

    God bless you Madubuike

    God has step-by-step revealed Himself to man. In the garden of Eden Adam just knew Him as God (Elohim). Abraham called Him El-Shaddai (The great breasted One). To Moses it was revealed that He is Yahweh (Jehovah) meaning "I am". We today know Him as Yahshuah (Jesus) meaning "I am salvation".

    Let us thank God for His mercy and worship God our Father through our Lord Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!

    Love in Christ

    I not known to them.
  • Paul on Exodus 6 - 3 years ago
    It was not only Moses and Aaron who went in to Pharaoh to ask for the release of Israel.

    In addition to Moses and Aaron there were the sons of Rueben, the sons of Simeon, and the sons of Levi.

    Verses 26-27 These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom the LORD said, Bring out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their armies.

    These are they which spake to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that Moses and Aaron.

    Yes very dangerous to twist scriptures. Canaanites shall not be saved
    Zechariah 14:21 - Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts:
    and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein:
    and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.

    Numbers 21:3 - And the LORD hearkened to the voice of Israel, and delivered up the Canaanites;
    and they utterly destroyed them and their cities: and he called the name of the place Hormah.

    @Irene123 I believe Reginald was referring to verse 3 above that said And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
  • BSP on Exodus 6 - 6 years ago
    Verse 3: Jehovah God had not fully revealed himself by performing miracles as he had done for Moses. In this way he had not made himself known to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
  • Insight777 on Exodus 6 - 6 years ago
    Joseph called himself Lord of Egypt, lord of the land. Is he calling himself God? Lord is a term for a man not a deity. Lord can be a king or rich landowner or a husband or a respected teacher. Lord means a ruler, of people, wealth, land or knowledge it does not equal all the power of God.
  • Irene123 on Exodus 6 - 7 years ago
    Kevin - There can not be peace with all people; in Lk. 2:14, 'Peace on earth' does not refer to worldly peace; it refers to individual peace - as each person accepts the truth of God's word, individually. Salvation is an individual thing. Jesus himself said He came not to save the world. Yes, He will draw all men to Him, but they won't all accept Him.

  • A disciple on Exodus 6 - 7 years ago
    v 9 "And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage." God proceeded anyway with His servant Moses, and the rest saw afterwards what power is in the words of God, over the worst evils in men. Here too is another example of the Lord's great kindness and forgiveness and mercy toward those who are suffering under bondage.
  • Irene123 on Exodus 6 - 7 years ago
    There can be no peace on earth - until Jesus comes in the millennial reign as our King. Man - cannot do this. Man has made peace overtures, peace pacts, peace treaties out the ying yang - none of them to any avail.
  • Kevin on Exodus 6 - 7 years ago
    I think that everyone is Gods creation and that there can be and is a way to live peacefully with everyone on earth.
  • Sonja on Exodus 6 - 8 years ago
    God always remembers his covenant. It's beautiful how God speaks that He will be their God and they will be His people.
  • God's Woman's- on Exodus 6 - 9 years ago
    What God allowed under the laws of Moses, God nor the legal system in America will tolerate incest, nor bigamy. Thank God we are under grace and truth, that came about through the earthly ministry, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ. So, out with the old and in with the new-simply being led by the indwelling of the Holy Ghost.
  • God's Woman- on Exodus 6 - 9 years ago
    Upon reading this chapter, it appears that the context is the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt by the hand of Almighty God, through the efforts of Moses and Aaron. God wasn 't trying to convince Moses that His name was "Jehovah ", for He went on to say in the rest of the scriptures that I am the Lord. Throughout the old testament, God was known by "I AM ", and other names. God simply wanted Moses to know that he Aaron would not go to the Israelites Pharaoh in his own strength. The Almighty God doesn 't need any human to defend or to debate His name. He want humans to stop tripping over a name to repent, and to be baptized in the name of the Father God , Son Jesus Christ , and the Holy Ghost Spirit Power of God for the remission of sins Acts 1:8, 2:1-18 .Amen.
