The Law of Moses was likened unto the Moon and her ordinances. The Law of Moses was under the night, or a shadow of good things to come, according to the purpose. It was a carnal law for a carnal people.
The Name of Yahweh
Before the Law was introduced to Moses, there was a name change, for He (Yahweh) was known as Elohim or El Shaddai before the Mosaic Law was given. The name of Yahweh was first introduced to Moses at the backside of Mt. Sinai BEFORE the Law was given.
Exodus 3:13-15 "And Moses said unto Elohim, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The El of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And Elohim said unto Moses, AYAH ASHER AYAH: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I WILL BE hath sent me unto you. And Elohim said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, Yahweh, the Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations."
Moses was commanded to go back to Egypt
- To declare the name of the El Shaddai to Israel (the El of their Fathers) and to Pharoah, and
- To tell Pharoah to let Israel go 3 days journey to Mt. Sinai to worship Yahweh.
Exodus 3:18 "And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto him, Yahweh the Elohim of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to Yahweh our Elohim."
After Moses returned to Egypt and declared the name of Yahweh, Pharoah said:
Exodus 5:1-2 "And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith Yahweh the Elohim of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness. And Pharaoh said, Who is Yahweh, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know NOT Yahweh, NEITHER will I let Israel go."
After ten devestating plagues were placed as judgement on the gods of Pharoah and the Egyptions, the Israelites were quickly forced out of Egypt by the people with much substance.
Exodus 12:12, 30-33 "For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am Yahweh...And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve Yahweh, as ye have said. Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also. And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead men."
Fifty-Three days later, Israel HEARD the VOICE of Yahweh while he SPOKE the law to them from Mt. Sinai Exodus 20:1. We know then that once the law was given to Israel that they truly DID know the Creator by his true name, Yahweh.
The Name of Yahshua
In Matthew 1:21 it states: “ She shall bring forth a Son, and Thou shalt call His Name Yahshua: for He shall save His people from their sins". (Holy Name Bible) Yahshua was born under the law to fulfill the law, so Yahshua was still under the night of the purpose. When Elohim created the Moon it was to rule the night.It is the lesser light,at times appearing to be the same size as the Sun. The Moon has no light of it’s own but reflects the light of the Sun ( Son ).Now, Yahshua fulfills this at the cross. This represented the full moon, because the law was fully fulfilled, and at the same time it was a total eclipse.
Now the covenant change, beginning at Pentecost, brings a new name,Yahshua.That’s the name of salvation in this new covenant.Yahshua is the name of the Holy Spirit that is in mankind permanently now ( not in and out of physical bodies ), nor was Yahshua in and out of a physical body because Yahshua referred to the flesh in that covenant.
Remember that it was Yahweh Elohim IN Yahshua.The new covenant is written in our hearts and minds.( Jer.31:31-33 ) We are in the day portion of His purpose now.We are under the Son within our hearts and minds.We are translated into the Kingdom NOW in the day of the purpose. The moon is under our feet.( Rev.12 )This is where the Names and the purpose and the covenants are so important. In other words, rightly dividing the word of truth.( II Tim.2:15 ).Rightly dividing the Names in the purpose.Rightly dividing the ages and the covenants.
In the summertime the sun ( Son ) has warmth, as in the summer of the purpose the Holy Spirit is the warmth of love in you. Paul said in Romans 2:28-29 that we are inward Jews (not Christians).He is making you aware ( not self awareness ) of His love that has been poured out on his sons and daughters.( I John:3:1 )
It is a spiritual covenant now.
