In last week’s Teaching, we discussed the implications of Moses asking YeHoVaH to state who He is.
Exodus 3:13 "And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What shall I say unto them?"
The conversation between YeHoVaH and Moses on Mt Horeb continues after YeHoVaH revealed His name to Moses and gave specific instructions on what the Children of Israel should call Him. However, Moses’ question reveals an internal resistance of not wanting to return to Egypt.
After several attempts by YeHoVaH to show Moses that he has nothing to be concerned about, YeHoVaH’s love, patience, and longsuffering with Moses turn to anger. Moses’ reluctance to believe YeHoVaH is rooted in a hidden fear and a strong desire not to return to Egypt.
Moses’ reluctance and resistance to receive His assignment, as deliverer for the Children of Israel, angered The Mighty One of Israel in the teaching, Moses Angered YeHoVaH.
In preparation for this study, Moses Angered YeHoVaH, please read Exodus 4:1-17.
