God's Promise God promised to send His angel ahead of the children of Israel. I am going to send an angel in front of you, to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. Be attentive to him and listen to his voice; do not rebel against him, for he will not pardon your transgression; for my name is in him. But if you listen attentively to his voice and do all that I say, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and a foe to your foes.
When my angel goes in front of you, and brings you to the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, and I blot them out Exodus Since God would never share His name with any created being, this angel must be God Himself. Isaiah the prophet wrote. Since God will not share His name or glory with anyone else, this angel must be God. Joshua An imposing personage appeared to Joshua. Having Joshua immediately remove his sandals reminds one of the LORD telling Moses to remove his sandals in God's presence at the burning bush. Gideon Gideon was a man who was called by God to raise an army to defeat the innumerable Midianites.
Because Gideon was a timid person, God paid him a visit to assure him that all would go well.

If it was only an angel, and not God, that Gideon saw, then why was he afraid for his life? He was to deliver the people of Israel from their enemies. And Manoah said to his wife, "We shall surely die, for we have seen God" Judges , When the angel stretched out his hand to destroy Jerusalem, the LORD was grieved because of the calamity and said to the angel who was afflicting the people, "Enough! Withdraw your hand. Then they spoke to the angel of the LORD who was standing among the myrtle trees, "We have patrolled the earth, and lo, the whole earth remains at peace.
Only God has this power. This is a title that belongs to God alone. Forgive Sin The Bible says that only God can forgive sin. I, I am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake, and I will not remember your sins Isaiah Receive Worship Worship belongs to God and Him alone. God In Human Flesh The evidence from these appearances seems clear. Though we do not know exactly which member of the Trinity is in view, the most likely candidate would be God the Son.
If the angel of the LORD was, in some instances, Jesus Christ coming in a temporary body, then the term angel stresses the basic meaning of the word - one sent. God the Son was sent by God the Father. Therefore the word "angel" in that context would be referring to the office of the One sent-a messenger. This is in keeping with nature of the mission of Jesus Christ - He is the one whom the Father has sent. If, however, it is one of the angelic host who is referred to as the angel of the LORD, then it is the nature of the being that is being stressed - one of the heavenly host, a created spirit-being.
The angel has attributes that belong to God and God alone. If this be the case, then He is not a created being, but God Himself who took on angelic form. Though some have thought it to be God the Father, this would more likely be an instance of Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity, coming to earth for a short time in a human form. On these occasions the angel must be a created being rather than God Himself. Donate Contact. Blue Letter Bible is a c 3 nonprofit organization. Cite this page MLA format.

More recently, Sumerologists have suggested additionally connecting both this Euechoios , and the king of Babylon and grandfather of Gilgamos who appears in the oldest copies of Aelian c. In , J. Prince also suggested a possible link between the Lord Ni of Marad and Nimrod. He mentioned how Dr. Kraeling was now inclined to connect Nimrod historically with Lugal-Banda, a mythological king mentioned in Poebel, Historical Texts , , whose seat was at the city Marad.
Abuse of Faith
According to Ronald Hendel the name Nimrod is probably a polemical distortion of the god Ninurta , a prominent god in Mesopotamian religion who had cult centers in a number of Assyrian cities such as Kalhu , and also in Babylon , and was a patron god of a number of Assyrian kings. The identification with Ninus follows that of the Clementine Recognitions ; the one with Zoroaster, that of the Clementine Homilies , both works part of Clementine literature.
In David Rohl 's theory, Enmerkar , the Sumerian founder of Uruk , was the original inspiration for Nimrod, because the story of Enmerkar and the Lord of Aratta  bears a few similarities to the legend of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, and because the -KAR in Enmerkar means "hunter".
Additionally, Enmerkar is said to have had ziggurats built in both Uruk and Eridu , which Rohl postulates was the site of the original Babel. George Rawlinson believed Nimrod was Belus like Nimrod and Ninus a king not attested in Mesopotamian annals, but claimed by the later Greeks to have been a king of Assyria based on the fact Babylonian and Assyrian inscriptions bear the names Bel-Nibru. Joseph Poplicha wrote in about the identification of Nimrod in the first dynasty or Uruk . Yigal Levin suggests that Nimrod was a recollection of Sargon of Akkad and of his grandson Naram-Sin, with the name "Nimrod" derived from the latter.
He argues that:. The biblical Nimrod, then, is not a total counterpart of any one historical character. He is rather the composite Hebrew equivalent of the Sargonid dynasty: the first, mighty king to rule after the flood. Later influence modified the legend in the Mesopotamian tradition, adding such details as the hero's name, his territory and some of his deeds, and most important his title, "King of Kish".
The later editors of the Book of Genesis dropped much of the story and mistakenly identified the Mesopotamian Kish with the Hamitic Cush. In modern American English , the term is often used sarcastically to mean a dimwitted or a stupid person, a usage first recorded in and popularized by the Looney Tunes cartoon characters Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck , who both sarcastically refer to the hunter Elmer Fudd as "nimrod",   as an ironic connection between "mighty hunter" and "poor little Nimrod", i.
