February 7, 2016

Past week psalms 25:16 – psalm 30 1-12

We started this week with learning about the words Tetragammation meaning 4 letters for God YAWH Yahweh – Lord Adonai – Lord

Read aloud Exodus 33:17-23 Church – God is thought of as a Grandpa or Grandma always there

Temple – God’s Face was off limits. So righteousness and holiness, to much for us to look at.

Psalm 27 – Anthem of Praise. (Vs 1-6) Confidence in Lord I believe I shall see the Goodness. (Vs 8) Here O Lord, I need your Presence. Say “seek his Face” – 40 references worship to the Lord ( Adonai) 6823 times in Old Testament.

Psalm 29. Yahweh, Lord, appears 18 times in this psalm. Psalm gives Glory to an Omnipotent Lord. “Enthronement Psalm” putting God as King. Why is nature so important? God created Earth and all that’s in it.
