Yahweh, Day 276

    Day 276
Yahweh: ... Calling on The Name #4

Joel 2:32
32 Then everyone who calls
on the name of Yahweh will be saved,
for there will be an escape
for those on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
as the LORD promised,
among the survivors the LORD calls.
(Holman Christian Standard Bible)

The last statement of our verse, “… among the survivors the LORD calls.”

With the position of this statement comes the priority of the statement.  We would never call on The Name unless Yahweh first calls out to us.  In the Hebrew way of phrasing this is the import of the sentence structure, that Yahweh calls to us before we call to Him.  It is sort of like placing the emphasis of who is calling first, at the end.

Think of the person lost in the vast wood.  The searchers are going out, looking, and calling out the name of the dear lost soul.  At last the calls of the searchers reach the ears of the lost one, and in response, the lost cries out in return.  The searchers are ecstatic when they hear the cry!

So is Yahweh.

This is in The Name.
