The One Name

The-Name-Facebook-coverI continued our series, “The Name,” this weekend at Eastbrook Church by looking at Exodus 3:13-22. My message, “The One Name,” is really the heart of this series and this passage, where God reveals His name to Moses. I drew parallels for this message from Exodus 6:1-8.

You can listen to my message at the Eastbrook web-site here. You can also follow the RSS feed for Eastbrook sermons or follow Eastbrook Church on Twitter or Facebook.

The message outline from the bulletin is included below. 

The God who Eternally Lives (Exodus 3:14-156:3)

  • Yahweh
  • ‘I AM WHO I AM’ or ‘I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE”
  • ‘This is my name forever’

The God who is Almighty (Exodus 6:3)

  • El Shaddai

The God who is Faithful to His Promises (Exodus 3:15-166:4-5)

  • ‘The God of your fathers’
  • ‘The God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob’

The God who Redeems (Exodus 3:17-226:6-8)

  • ‘I have promised to bring you up out of your misery’
  • ‘I will redeem you with an outreached arm’

The Picture of the Burning Bush (Exodus 3:2-6)

  • The glory
  • The ordinary

 

One thought on “The One Name

  1. This was such a great message. It is pretty rare these days to have solid and exegetically sound teaching from the Old Testament that is delivered as relevant for today. The parallels in Exodus 6 were so helpful in enlightening Exodus 3.

    I would like to add an important aspect of the name Yahweh (LORD) that was in the message in content but not in specific. The name Yahweh comes from the root Hebrew word meaning “to be”. Hence God saying his name is “I AM”. So it is the personal name of God, He is with us, He wants “to be” with us. Other definitions can be, “who is present, who makes himself manifest”.

    How awesome is it that God’s personal name means to be with us. Isn’t this what the story of the Bible is from the beginning – I am your God, you are my people (Ex 6:7) all the way to the end: And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.” Praise God!
