Then Pharaoh told Moses, “Who is Yehovah, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go? I do not know Yehovah, nor will I let Israel go?” (Exo 5:2)
I love how Moses and Aaron answer Pharaoh’s question, “Who is Yehovah, that I should obey His voice?”
Who Is Yehovah? He Is The Hebrew’s Elohim!
So they said, “The Hebrew’s Elohim has met with us. Please, let us go three days’ journey into the desert and slaughter to Yehovah, our Elohim, lest He fall upon us with pestilence or with the sword.” (Exo 5:3)
The Pharaoh Moses spoke with did not know Joseph, nor did his father. But they all knew the stories associated with the Hebrews and the Elohim whom they served. He asked, “Who is Yehovah” because this name was new to him; just as it is for most of the world today.
Moses did not threaten Pharaoh, as I might be tempted to do, but instead told Pharaoh that he was concerned “lest He (Yehovah) fall upon us with pestilence and sword.”
Who Is Yehovah To Me?
This was the primary reason I left the kingdom of my birth and the covenants I had with their elohim back in 2000. I was concerned that the Hebrews’ Elohim, the creator of heaven and earth, would destroy me and my family if I did not.
This reminds me of the first message that the servants of the Hebrews’ Elohim will proclaim once they are set-apart with a pillar of fire and smoke over each of their heads.
Judgment Come First To Those Believe They Know Who Is Yehovah But Serve Other Elohim
“Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.” (Rev 14:7)
When Pharaoh refused to listen to Moses, he made the workload on Israel even harder and when it got hard for those “men” they complained to their elohim, Pharaoh. Sound a bit like us today?
Who Is Yehovah To You? Your Papers Please?
Yehovah is not the Elohim of any men who claims citizenship in in any other country or Kingdom but His. Many men say they are Yehovah’s, but all you need do is open your wallet to see who you really do serve. Have we forgotten what the 1st commandment says?
“I am Yehovah, thy Elohim, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shall have no other elohim existing before My face.” (Exo 20:2-3)
Who is Yehovah? The Elohim Who Does What He Says!
One thing that I love about Yehovah is the meaning of His name; what He says, He does! Yehovah, the Hebrews’ Elohim, will ALWAYS do what He says.
I will put My spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, Yehovah, have spoken it and performed it,” says Yehovah.’ ” (Eze 37:14)
That said, Moses was concerned and complained to Yehovah when the work had gotten harder for Israel and their burden was about to crush them. It was then that Yehovah spoke to Moses.
“Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh. For with a strong hand he will let them go, and with a strong hand he will drive them out of his land.” (Exo 6:1)
In relation to Yehovah’s promises, the words which He speaks are often prefaced or concluded and sometimes both, by Yehovah’s name. When Yehovah puts His name on it we can be sure it will come to pass. Those men who truly know Yehovah, unlike Pharaoh, have learned to order their lives in accordance with Yehovah’s word; they serve ONLY the Hebrews’ Elohim.
Here is the promise Yehovah made to Israel while he was still addressing Moses’ complaint.
Therefore say to Israel’s seed: ‘I am Yehovah; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. I will take you as My people, and I will be your Elohim. Then you shall know that I am Yehovah, your Elohim who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. And I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and I will give it to you as a heritage: I am Yehovah.’ ” (Exo 6:6-7)
Did He do what He said He would do, the first time He brought Israel out of Egypt? You betcha He did!
“Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “that it shall no more be said, ‘Yehovah lives who brought up Israel’s seed from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘Yehovah lives who brought up Israel’s seed from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers. (Jer 16:14-15)
Now listen to His promise concerning Israel’s deliverance the second time. Please notice that he is not delivering any Gentiles. Every Gentile man (with his family) MUST leave the kingdom and the elohim of his birth (his Egypt) and be joined to THE Elohim of the Hebrews.
“Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says my master, Yehovah. “I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went. And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am Yehovah,” says my master Yehovah, “when I am hallowed in you before their eyes.
For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God.
I will deliver you from all your uncleannesses. I will call for the grain and multiply it, and bring no famine upon you. And I will multiply the fruit of your trees and the increase of your fields, so that you need never again bear the reproach of famine among the nations.
Then you will remember your evil ways and your deeds that were not good; and you will loathe yourselves in your own sight, for your iniquities and your abominations. Not for your sake do I do this,” says my master Yehovah, “Let it be known to you. Be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel!” (Eze 36:22-32)
Who is Yehovah?
He is the Hebrews’ Elohim who always does what He says!
