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?
Well, scripture doesn’t say specifically on ONE verse if it is Jesus, his father, or another servant angel of God. But, I hope to show you over a series of posts that it DOES reveal to us who the “God of Israel” from the Old Testament is. And what scripture reveals is very shocking at first. We are taught by religious tradition that it was the father of Jesus (the great “I AM”) up on the mountain with Moses and the elders.
There is a HUGE problem with that. (Actually, there are MANY and I will lay all them out in many posts!)
The very words of Jesus:
No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. John 6:46
Jesus tells us plainly in John 6:46 that only HE has seen the father and NO ONE else ever has. He confirms this in the next verse more specifically.
And the Father who sent Me, He has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time nor seen His form John 5:37
No one at any time has seen the form of the Father or heard his voice except Jesus himself. Please ponder this and what these powerful words of Jesus mean. What about all those in the Old Testament who believed they saw the Father or heard his voice? Here’s more proof of this astounding truth.
No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him John 1:18
No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us 1 John 4:12-13
who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen 1 Timothy 6:16
My friend. I pray that the Lord will give you childlike faith to simply believe these most powerful verses as they are stated. Please don’t worry if they don’t fit into what you currently know or believe. These are true and they must become the foundation from which all other beliefs are put on top of.
Jesus himself tells us when he arrived that no one has seen the father except he himself who came from God. Plus, John is very clear in 1 John 4:12 that “no one has EVER seen God”. Do you see how “earth-shattering” this truth is to what most of us believe?
If it wasn’t the great I AM who is the father of Jesus, then who is the “God of Israel” who is up on the mountain?
Was it Jesus himself?
Not according to what Jesus also tells his disciples.
Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father ‘? John 14:9
The one who looks at me is seeing the one who sent me John 12:45
Jesus says that if we have seen him, we have also seen the father and that if we see him, we are seeing the one who sent him. Seeing one is the SAME thing as seeing the other. Thus, we can conclude that it was NOT Jesus himself up on Mount Sinai giving the Law of Moses to Moses and then visiting with the Elders.
Wow, what a mystery!
This is one powerful revelation that is going to shock us when we see the truth that has been hidden for centuries. Praise God he is revealing the truth to us in these special days and times. I pray the Lord will allow me to lay out a very in-depth set of points to show you exactly who the “God of Israel”.
No one can believe these things unless God gives this belief (faith) to them as much religious bondage and strongholds in the outer man must be destroyed. I pray that the Lord will reveal these most powerful truths to you my dear friend. Personally, I walked around in a daze for about a week when I first saw this and only shared it with one person for months. I sense it’s time to “come out of the closet” and the darkness and share the truth so we can be set free!
Over the next 10-20 days I will share many more points to answer this one mysterious question – Who is the God of Israel? I will ask a series of related questions and make various sub-points and then find the answers directly from scripture. From these, I pray the Lord will speak to each of us personally on this.
We are free to believe whatever we want, but I hope you will believe scripture as it is plainly stated even if it goes against what we have been taught. What we have been taught is often contrary to what scripture plainly tells us. This is called a “tradition of man” that “nullifies the Word of God” according to Jesus. Mark 7:13, Matthew 15:6
From all these points, I hope and pray the Lord will open our hearts and unveil our minds to see the truth that will set us free after the shock wears off.
Feel free to forward these to anyone that comes to mind who may be interested in discovering along with us this most powerful truth.
God bless you.
