Yahweh, Day 63
Day 63, Yahweh's Name… Denied in Judgment
So Ahab summoned all the Israelites and gathered the prophets at Mount Carmel. Then Elijah approached all the people and said, "How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If Yahweh is God, follow Him. But if Baal, follow him." But the people didn't answer him a word.
1Kings 18:20-21 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Why did Israel not answer a word?
They were is such a wretched spiritual condition... they could not say The Name. This is a mark of Divine Judgment... to not know... to not be able to even speak The Name... as Jeremiah reveals...
"Therefore, hear the word of the Lord, all you Judeans who live in the land of Egypt: 'I have sworn by My great name, says the Lord, that My name will never again be invoked by anyone of Judah in all the land of Egypt, saying, As the Lord God lives'..."
Jeremiah 44:26 (HCSB)
Now... you see... The Name has been hidden from us for over a thousand years.
It has been a dark millennium.
Be not afraid child of God... say The Name... Yahweh.
