Proclaim the Name of the LORD

May 13, 2010

Exodus 33:18-19 Then Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!”
19Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion{show mercy} on whom I will have compassion{show mercy}.”

Exodus 34:5-7 Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him{Moses} there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. 6nd the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, 7keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty , visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.

These are the LORD’s response to the cry ‘show me Your glory’! To ‘see’ His glory is to ‘see’ His great mercy, His justice, His goodness and His truth!

Proclaiming His mercy, grace, longsuffering {slow to anger}, justice, goodness, truth and forgiveness are part of proclaiming His name.

Psalm 86:15-17 You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth. 16Oh, turn to me, and have mercy on me! Give Your strength to Your servant, And save the son of Your maidservant{save me, for I am your servant}. 17Show me a sign for good{a sign of Your goodness}, That those who hate me may see it and be ashamed, Because You, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
