My God is almighty!

Exodus 34:1 And the Lord said to Moses, “Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I will write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke. 
2 So be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning to Mount Sinai, and present yourself to Me there on the top of the mountain. 
3 And no man shall come up with you, and let no man be seen throughout all the mountain; let neither flocks nor herds feed before that mountain.”
4 So he cut two tablets of stone like the first ones. Then Moses rose early in the morning and went up Mount Sinai, as the Lord had commanded him; and he took in his hand the two tablets of stone.
5 Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. 
6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, 
7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”
8 So Moses made haste and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped. 
9 Then he said, “If now I have found grace in Your sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray, go among us, even though we are a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your inheritance.”
10 And He said: “Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you. 11 Observe what I command you this day. Behold, I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite.
 


After the golden calf incidence and Moses had destroyed the first two Stone tablets, and He prepared to returned to Adonai.

And the Lord said to Moses, “Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I will write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke.” (Vs 1)

Adonai tells Moses that He must come up the mountain again in the morning to receive yet again the written Law from the hand of Adonai.

“So be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning to Mount Sinai, and present yourself to Me there on the top of the mountain. 
And no man shall come up with you, and let no man be seen throughout all the mountain; let neither flocks nor herds feed before that mountain.”
(Vs 2, 3)

Here is yet again an image of how special Moses is in Adonai’s sight. No on is allowed to be on that mountain but Him and His Elohim. No one else would dare approach Him.

So he (Moses) cut two tablets of stone like the first ones. Then Moses rose early in the morning and went up Mount Sinai, as the Lord had commanded him; and he took in his hand the two tablets of stone.
5 Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. 
6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, 
7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”
(Vs 4-7)

Most people know God, but only as an object. A thing that can give us anything we want, And when He stops blessing us, what happens then? We begin to be our own God.

But Moses knew Him as a friend, and they spoke as friends. A because this Lord was not the Father, I believe it can be no other than the living Word of God, Yehoshua as Adonai.

For Yehoshua spoke of Moses, He said, For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. 
But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”
(John 5:46, 47)

Moses went to His knees before Adonai, So Moses made haste and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshiped. 
Then he said, “If now I have found grace in Your sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray, go among us, even though we are a stiff-necked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your inheritance.”  
(Vs 8, 9)

Asking for mercy, and grace, ought to be a part of every prayer, for Moses knew He was not perfect, nor were those whom He dad helped to bring out from Egypt.

A stiff-necked people indeed, He prays for a pardon of their sin, but He claims it as our sin. But what is so beautiful about His prayer However, is His petition to take us as His inheritance.

Yes us, for our portion is with the children of Israel. And those who waited for Him at the base of the Mountain were no different from us. And we too are also wandering in a wilderness, and looking yet again for that promised land. This is very much our story and we will see the redemption of Elohim in the end, for He is coming for His own.

  

And He said: “Behold, I make a covenant. Before all your people I will do marvels such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord. For it is an awesome thing that I will do with you. 
(Vs 10)

So here, Adonai confirms His covenant with them to set them above every other nation on the Earth. And yes, it is awesome what He does, and what He will do.

“Observe what I command you this day. Behold, I am driving out from before you the Amorite and the Canaanite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Hivite and the Jebusite.” (Vs 11) 

As an extension of His Covenant, He promises to drive out before us any godless people in the way of His promise land to the Children of Israel. But guess who will have to bear Arms and fight with God at their back, they cannot lose, but they will have to fight. And exercising their faith they will kill God’s enemies. (See The book of Joshua)

Here’s a lesson for all who believe on the Elohim of Israel. Amen?

My God is a lion, and a warrior!

Shalom my friends,
