What you want me to be Dr. Tony Evans is God's character isn't defined by our notions of what he ought to be by what he chooses to reveal about himself celebrating.
This is the alternative Dr. Tony Evans authored speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the alternative, saying, you know, a celebrity because of what the media tells you is ridiculous.
People claim to know God through pat answers and catchy phrases that are every bit as unreliable. Let's try Dr. Evans as he explains how to recognize and understand what God is telling us about himself little boy in school was drawing a picture and the teacher came over to him and said someone is that you are drawing the voice said well drawing a picture of God.
She said you can't be drawing a picture of God, because no one knows what God looks like which the little boy said well they will when I'm finished. Everybody has their view what God looks like. Today I want you to look at a name all of us are familiar with from one way or another. That is the word Jehovah Jehovah Jehovah is the most frequently used name for God in the Old Testament. It is used 6823 time. It is God's favorite name for himself. It is God's most famous name in Exodus chapter 3 is being said to roll my people go out of Egypt. Moses through a series of events has become a very insecure person. What will mean so God is three is real you is the name to all generations is an image why WH we why WH maybe to be to become you, and why am who I am has sent you only because you is important because it is God's name in God. Why WH announced so what name because God name Joe's will speak because that would be this way would be to speak because this name was viewed as an expression of the name of God call grandma thought it was a holy nation, God's were writing or reading the Bible and they came with that name just right when I pronounce pronounce the word Yahweh way way what to be able to pronounce the name that we could not pronounce with confidence became Jehovah UH make a mistake became English became Jehovah. We were way, way, way Jehovah comes back. Exodus 3 word for God's discussed becoming compound words to show unveiling in a specific situation to see him exposing himself. No drama introduction but when Jehovah exposes himself somebody's drunk situation or circumstance is not a new name is we have a new situation when you make a special point about himself. He is himself the creation people that Joe revealing one that's what he did here verse one Moses was pastoring the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the west side of the wilderness and came the horror of the mountain of God, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire from the Mets the angel of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Old Testament appeared to him knows the word Lord LORD so now we talk about Jehovah. The self revealing God Jehovah. Him in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush and behold a bush burning bush and see his marvelous light, which the bush is not burnt out when LO God, okay, you know, when is right to ask something about himself to you. You going to ask something of himself to Wendy show contradiction between plaintiffs as you will you will will and will when contradiction to Moses will will will you you some new information for you will himself show is usually because you Matthew you mention Jehovah exposing himself to you will you want to the shoe verse recognition. You see when God created man he created from the from the ocean into God created you when you originally met create and coordinate. He said he didn't do anything.
