The CHALLENGE OF GOD's CALL-II—Exodus 3:1-22

Assistance/Availability/Discovering/Significance

Attention:

Dec. 30, 2014 the U.S. Dept. Of Energy began offering a standing $1million prize—‘H2 refuel H-Prize’—to that entity or person who could come up with a plan to make fuel cell(for electric cars) refueling economically feasible, faster & nationally available.

Fuel cells convert Hydrogen into Electricity, releasing only water, & heat as waste products.

They are contemplating that individuals should be able to make their own fuel & not have to worry about distance refueling.

It is a true challenge for scientists etc.

Likewise God’s people have a challenge before them in accepting God’s call. It is just as tenuous & even more so than the H2 Refuel challenge.

Exodus records the significance of God’s call to Moses.

Answering God’s call presents a significant challenge.

:4—“So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush & said, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.” ”

God called “Moses” by name. For Moses there was no question about the fact of God’s “call.” Moses quickly responded to God’s “call” with a statement of surprise & obedience(hnh hin-ney’). Moses does not literally say, “Here I am,” but uses hnh(—Behold, Lo, etc.) as an idiom which translates to “Here I am,” meaning that he was available to the one speaking— ‘Behold/Look/See me, I am here.’

“LORD”—hwhy yeh-ho-vaw'—Jehovah = "the existing One”—1) The proper name of the one true God—1a) unpronounced except with the vowel pointings of ynda Ad-o-noy’. Strong—(the) Self-Existent or Eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God.

Strong—a primitive root [rather identical with arq[To encounter/Befall/Meet] through the idea of accosting a person met]; To call out to(i.e. properly--Address by name, but used in a wide variety of applications).

“Moses”—hvm Mo-sheh'—Moses = “drawn"—1) The prophet & lawgiver, leader of the exodus. from hvm maw-shaw'; a primitive root; To pull out(literally or figuratively); Drawing out(of the water), i.e. Rescued; Mosheh, the Israelite lawgiver.
