And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire? (Zachariah 3:2)
Was this Lord speaking of another Lord?


Whos speaking?

Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; (Genesis 19:24)

The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, (Exodus 34:5-7)

How can you even think of taking this book seriously ?

The LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend. Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young aide Joshua son of Nun did not leave the tent.
(Exodus 33:11)

Whoever inserted the text saying that God spoke to Moses "face to faceas one speaks to a friend.  (Exodus 33:11) apparently failed to check that this was consistent with the main narrative, which at verse 20 has God saying to Moses "you cannot see my face

But," he said, "you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live."
(Exodus 33:20)


Christians may try to respond by saying no that was a metaphorical statement, it wasn't a literal Face to Face. But notice the proceeding statement THEN Moses would return to the camp... Moses would return back to the camp which means he would have actually met Yahweh in person like a friend does have a chat and then get back to his camp!. That's pretty clear this isn't a metaphorical statement.

This puts Christians into a dilemma, if Moses saw the Face of Yahweh why did Yahweh lie and say no man can see his face? If he didn't see Yahweh's Face why does the text say Moses would speak Face to Face like one speaks to his friend?.  And please save yourselves from embarrassment by saying one can speak to his friend over the Phone without seeing him?. There was No Phones 3000 years ago !!!!! What a weak response!!

Who would speak to his friends hiding his face 3000 years ago unless the entire story was a lie made up by people who did not know what the proceeding verses were as the texts were being tampered and updated.

Serpant or Satan?
