Blessings in Obedience

Lev 26

1  ‘Do not make idols for yourselves, and do not set up a carved image or a pillar for yourselves, and do not place a stone image in your land, to bow down to it. For I am יהוה your Elohim.

2  ‘Guard My Sabbaths and reverence My set-apart place. I am יהוה.

3  ‘If you walk in My laws and guard My commands, and shall do them,

BLESSINGS:

 4  then I shall give you rain in its season, and the land shall yield its crops, and the trees of the field yield their fruit.

5  ‘And your threshing shall last till the time of the grape harvest, and the grape harvest shall last till the time of sowing. And you shall eat your bread until you have enough, and shall dwell in your land safely.

6  ‘And I shall give peace in the land, and you shall lie down and no one make you afraid. And I shall clear the land of evil beasts, and not let the sword go through your land.

7  ‘And you shall pursue your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you.

8  ‘And five of you shall pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you pursue ten thousand. And your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.

9  ‘And I shall turn to you and make you fruitful, and shall increase you, and shall establish My covenant with you.

10  ‘And you shall eat the old supply, and clear out the old because of the new.

11  ‘And I shall set My Dwelling Place in your midst, and My being shall not reject you.

12  ‘And I shall walk in your midst, and shall be your Elohim, and you shall be My people.

13  ‘I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, from being their slaves. And I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk upright.

IF we walk in Yahweh’s Torah THEN we will receive the promises attached to it by being blessed in obedience.

Next we will see what happens when we DO NOT obey Yahweh’s Torah, His commands.

Until next time.

“I AM sent you”

Exodus 3

13 And Mosheh said to Elohim, “See, when I come to the children of Yisra’ĕl and say to them, ‘The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His Name?’ what shall I say to them?

I have always learned that the Father told Moses that His Name to be given to Israel was “I AM” but recently I realized that this is not what the Father said His Name was.

This did not go unnoticed due to translation issues but rather due to a deliberate replacement of the Father’s Name with “LORD” in modern translations. The Father’s Name appears right through the Scriptures when you read the Hebrew text and should also appear in the modern texts of other languages. Let us look what really happened at Mt Sinai.

14 And Elohim said to Mosheh, “I am that which I am.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘I am has sent me to you.’

Take note that the above statement does NOT say what His Name is. The Father only told Moses what he must say to Israel. Often we need to read the previous or next vers in order to get the context of something.

15 And Elohim said further to Mosheh, “Thus you are to say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Ya‛aqoḇ, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance to all generations.

Yahweh the Elohim of your Fathers. Yahweh is the Name that the Father gave Moses to give Israel. It is Yahweh which is the Name of the Father FOREVER. Not I am. However this was missed because of translations which replaced the Name with the word “LORD” and because “LORD” is a rank and not a name it was assumed that “I AM” was the Name. However this is not the case.

Let us look at the KJV for an example;

15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The Lord 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.

“The Lord God” of your fathers. Gone is the Name of the Father. Let us look at the Hebrew to see whether we can see the Name of the Father in there.

Exo 3v15 KJV

Strong’s reference number H3068 is for the Hebrew יהוה .

 

Exo 3v15 HEBm

 

When I discovered this it felt like I discovered a pot of gold!!! HalleluYah!

Let us look again at what the Father told Moses to say His Name is.

 

Thus you are to say to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘יהוה Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Aḇraham, the Elohim of Yitsḥaq, and the Elohim of Ya‛aqoḇ, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance to all generations.’

 

I pray that this study is a blessing to everyone!

Until next time.

Shalom
