IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THESE INTERPRETATIONS DO NOT REPLACE THE READING OF THE BIBLE BUT MERELY PLACE VARIOUS MATTERS IN THE CORRECT CONTEXT AND HIGHLIGHT VERY IMPORTANT POINTS!!
MOST IMPORTANTLY, THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, JEHOVAH GOD ONLY “GIVES” US WHAT WE AS HUMANS “NEED” TO KNOW ABOUT HIM, HIS INTENTIONS, HIS PLANS AND HIS DESIRES!!
CONTINUING WITH THE BOOK OF EXODUS
EXODUS Chapter 06
A very brief interpretation of Chapter 06 will follow:
JEHOVAH GOD then told Moses that HE was always only known to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as “ALMIGHTY GOD” and not by HIS actual NAME, JEHOVAH”!!
The 1611CE King James Bible spells the NAME of JEHOVAH exactly as it is given above and I am fully satisfied that my CREATOR is OMNISCIENT and LOVING enough to know that I know HIM and that HE is not petty in that a minor human error would suffice for HIM to condemn me!!
JEHOVAH GOD informs Moses that HE is aware of the plight of HIS people and that HE is also aware of the covenant that HE had made with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; and also that HE will ensure that the Israelites can return to the land of Canaan.
JEHOVAH GOD also further promises Moses that HE is going to show Pharaoh HIS might and that HE will eventually destroy him.
Pharaoh will, however, allow the Israelites to leave before he and his people are destroyed.
JEHOVAH GOD also promises that the Israelites will once again be HIS “people”!!
Verse 8 states “And I will bring you in vnto the lande concerning the which I did sweare to giue it, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Iacob, and I will giue it you for an heritage, I am the Lord.”
The word “heritage” is given as a noun to mean:
1. property that is or may be inherited; an inheritance.
2. a special or individual possession; an allotted portion.
The word “possession” is given as a noun to mean:
1. the state of having, owning, or controlling something.
2. an item of property; something belonging to one.
JEHOVAH GOD was thus promising that HE would “GIVE” the “AN ALLOTTED PORTION OF THE ACTUAL PHYSICAL LAND” that they were moving to as a “GIFT” that would BELONG to them FOREVER!!
JEHOVAH GOD IS THUS NEVER EVER GOING TO DESTROY THIS PHYSICAL EARTH THAT WE LIVE ON; AND THIS IS OFTEN CONFIRMED LATER ON IN THE BIBLE!!!
JEHOVAH GOD again spoke to Moses to speak to Pharaoh but he was hesitant as even the Israelites were not listening to him due to having to work harder and being punished.
My next Post should cover EXODUS: Chapter 7
