The LORD proclaims His Name

I get very excited thinking about this lesson. In Exodus 32, we read that  Moses has come down the mountain to find that the people have quickly turned aside from obeying the LORD as He had commanded .  The consequences are swift and dire. Now Moses waits upon the LORD to see if His presence is still going to accompany them on their journey to the promised land. Again we find Moses pleading with the LORD to be gracious to them , and Moses goes one bold step further and asks to see the Lord’s glory. In chapter 34  the LORD passes by before Moses, who was hidden in the cleft of the rock, covered by His hand, and the LORD proclaims His name which describes His character.  Behind each door is one of these traits… merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundant in goodness, abundant in truth, forgiving sins, transgressions and iniquities, and  a righteous judge  that will punish those who hate Him (implied ).

You can match your colors to whatever season you find yourself teaching this lesson in. The doors measure  1 1/4 in. by 2 1/2 in.  If  you prefer to teach using Yahweh for “The Name “, here is an alternative worksheet:
