Part 3 - The Fall and the Restoration
Overview: The Model of Restoration: Commandment Three
God has revealed Himself to us in His name. Yahweh, meaning "the Self-Existent One," is used in compound forms to signify God as the One who becomes to us all that we need. The Third Commandment is that this name is not to be taken in vain. God by His name has revealed that He is sufficient and complete to those who come to Him. Under His name He desires faith and trust in Him. The model of restoration from the fall in this aspect concerns the mind of man. Man elevated his own understanding above God's. A restored relationship involves man once again submitting to God's understanding through faith and trust.
