In Exodus 6 one of God’s main points is for Moses to understand who God is. So He repeats His name approximately 4,091 times.
(Not really, but it’s a lot.)
((And if I don’t clarify that He didn’t literally say His name 4,091 times in chapter 6, one day, when I’m 53, someone will dig up this post to show the world that I am a liar with terrible theology and that I lead people astray. Be that as it may, it certainly cannot be backed up by this particular post. So. Try again, haters! Muhahahahaha!))
(((Well, that took a turn.)))
God also tells Moses what He is going to do during the event that will become known as The Exodus.
And then Moses wraps up chapter 6 with his and Aaron’s genealogy to make it overkillingly clear which Moses and Aaron this story is about.
The Exodus 5 video is now live for your enjoyment. At the start of chapter 5, everyone is still high from worshiping God upon hearing of His amazing plan to free them, as was recorded at the end of chapter 4. By the end of chapter 5, everyone hates Moses and he takes it out on God. So. Totally applicable to our lives today.
Today’s video on Exodus 4 highlights Moses’ penchant for letting fear and self-doubt prompt him to argue with God for a really long time. Moses’ fear of failing was greater than his fear of God. I’m glad I don’t struggle with that ever.
Oh, and don’t forget, the entire time Moses is throwing out excuses as to why he shouldn’t obey, GOD IS IN A FLAMING BUSH RIGHT BEFORE HIS VERY EYES.
I’ve just posted my second video teaching through Exodus. It covers Moses’ life from conception to marriage, so it is a smidge longer than I prefer (about 13 minutes). Check it out over on my YouTube channel!
Clearly, I am in no mood to write. However, I am still having the thoughts about the stuff. So I am trying a new medium for awhile: YouTube.
That’s right, I am leaping into 2005!
The idea is to share 5-10 minute videos every other day-ish that cover 1 chapter of the Bible.
I’m starting in Exodus because starting in Genesis is so 2004.
I will not promise I will have showered or put on make up or brushed my hair. But I will promise to provide insight and application that may or may not be useful. I will not promise mistake-free teaching, but I will promise to never knowingly teach heresy.
