Who Is Yahweh?

Hi G____,

I am glad you have been looking at the site. The answer to most of your questions is, yes, except for the fourth and fifth ones about Yahweh.
Yes, I believe God is totally sovereign, to such an extent that it was He who caused you to write this e- mail.

Eph 1:11  In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

God really is totally sovereign and really is “working all things after the counsel of His own will”.
Yes, I do believe in universal salvation, preceded by God’s fiery judgment upon all unrighteousness of men.

Rom 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
1Co 15:22  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

Yes, I do believe that we are now under the New Covenant or New Testament, and not the law of Moses. I believe that Christ, like Moses, was a true reformer.

Joh 6:32  Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
Heb 7:12  For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
Heb 9:10  Which [ laws of Moses] stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.

On these last two you say:

On these two you do not yet understand what the scriptures teach. Christ tells us that He came to reveal, for the first time, the Father. Yahweh is not the Father. Yahweh is ‘I Am’ and ‘I Am’ is Christ.
Christ made this plain and simple statement:

Joh 5:37  And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

‘You have not at any time heard His voice nor seen His shape.’ Abraham both saw and heard Yahweh. Moses saw and heard Yahweh, as did others in the Old Testament, because Yahweh is Christ, and Christ was the God of the Old Testament. Israel simply was not aware of that fact. They actually thought that Abraham had talked with the Father and that Moses had heard His voice, and had seen His “hinder parts”.

Exo 3:4  And when the LORD [ Yahweh] saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
Exo 3:5  And he [ Yahweh] said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest [ is] holy ground.
Exo 3:6  Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.

Christ was “the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, but neither Moses nor Israel was aware of that Truth. They actually thought they were talking with and seeing God. “Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.” And that was wise because while men did see Christ’s glory, no man can look on Christ’s face in His glory and live.

Exo 33:18  And he [ Moses] said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.
Exo 33:19  And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.
Exo 33:20  And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.
Exo 33:21  And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock:
Exo 33:22  And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by:
Exo 33:23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.

Compare those words, with these words of our Lord:

Joh 5:37  And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

I have already written about this, so I hope you do not mind reading this link:
