true God of Israel

Who was the “God of Israel” that gave Moses the law?

Friends.

I have been sitting on this one since April 12th of this year.  This revelation is one of the biggest and most powerful that I believe the Lord has given me.  I feel it is time to share and I hope he will use this to begin to set people free.

Thus, I am going to ask and answer this question:

Who is the REAL “God of Israel” in the Old Testament?

This is the God who gave Moses and the Israelites the Law and Commandments at Mt. Sinai in  Exodus.  Then, Moses and the 70 Elders went up on the mountain to see the “God of Israel”.  Let’s look at the verse.

Moses and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and the seventy elders of Israel went up, 10 and they saw the God of Israel. Under his feet there was something like a pavement made of sapphire, clear like the sky itself. 11 But he did not lay a hand on the leaders of the Israelites, so they saw God, and they ate and they drank. Exod 24:9-11

The “God of Israel” is the God who is the giver and administer of the Law of Moses and the Ten Commandments written on the tablets of stone.  First of all, isn’t it interesting that it says “he did not lay a hand on the leaders of the Israelites”?  What does that mean?

Doesn’t that sound strange about a God who defines himself as “Love”?

Is God a bully?  In my mind, this doesn’t sound like the Jesus who was revealed in the New Testament does it?  Remember, we are told that Jesus the exact image and representation of the one true God, the Father.  See Colossians 1:15, John 1:1, and Hebrews 1:3

So, who is the “God of Israel” on Mt. Sinai that Moses and the elders definitely saw and described?Continue reading
