If God was NOT know by the name/title “Lord” until they were in Egypt as slaves, that it WAS a condition of their fallen nature and first step of redemption, because of their despotism of a loss of god-li-ness (likeness). Why then did all the translators use the title “Lord” with this instruction not to do so, even in the beginning of scripture where it hadn’t been used yet in the original language according to what we just quoted? And why did they continue to translate “Lord” through out the rest of scripture even after it was supposed to be removed to be restored in the Exodus. Exodus means “departure”. It is for us to leave our old canal way of doming things in exchange for the new. Old things having past away, behole all things have become new, and all things are from the Father who is pre-existent as are all His things gifted to us through scripture

Question from Exodus 6.3
“And God spoke to Moses and said to him: “I am the Lord. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name “Lord” I was not (yet) known to them”. End quote.
So then why do believers still call Him “Lord” today when He doesn’t want us to do so as evidenced by the redemption pictured in Exodus starting with coming out from underneath lords, to be co-sovereigns and joint heirs with Christ of things from His Kingdom., of things we are suppose to put off in our understanding where our personal transfiguration takes place (Romans 12.1) .
Is it not to know our Heavenly Father more precisely and succinctly not as lord?
The bigger question is, what else did the translators do? And from the Jewish Torah, and with each new revision since, what else have they done? And what is our duty as believers?
We are told “to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints”?
Simply put, we were not left despot, we are not left beggars on our knees. As Christ pictured to the fallen saying “rise ye up and walk” was pointing to just this spiritual fact. That to “rise up and walk” is the resurrection in your thinking and spirit, to awaken to the greater reality of the gift given by taking our old fallen, fearful old self to the cross “to walk in newness of life” is a spiritual, mental condition without impoverished thinking.
This has nothing to do with earth like wealth because that is the competitive empowerment because “you cannot serve God and Mammon”. But since “God (the Father) has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness (our true riches) through the knowledge of Him who calls us to glory and virtue”. That we co-operate in this “great salvation” as joint owners and heirs to “the kingdom that cometh not with observation”, being “The Kingdom prepared from (before) the foundations of the world”, and “The Kingdom of God is at hand”, as Christ preached and has instructed all His believers to do so too saying “go ye therefore to the ends of the earth and the ages (depending on translation) teaching and preaching all that I have commanded you”. That if The Only Begotten of the Father did NOT “raise us up in this way, that Christ did NOT take our spiritual poverty and fearful mindedness to the cross, then the cross doesn’t really have any real redemptive power. And that is the blasphemy. That God would need some other act of redemption because His first act was in part. That Christ who is “seated waiting for His enemies to become His footstool” is not coming back to fight.
You may ask, well how then do we implement our Saviors savings for us, is through faith and obedience not if being a good person, but to follow the “unction of the Holy Spirit, and with the promises laced out scripture.
When it looks and feels like you’ve been abandoned and life’s enemies come closing in. Hopefully you’ve developed this understanding, backed up by your personal revelation encounters with God as Father, that you have a good grip on the fullness of your inheritance and our delivery from the gods of this age, being renewed in the spirit of our minds, to be in the calmness of the eye of the storm. And as with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego facing the fire, that you’ve learned to NOT let anyone Lord it over you and say like they, “oh King (or whomever, whatever) we have no need to answer you in these matters”. Why? Because of knowing and trusting the promises of God, that even as you go through the fires of this life, it can be said of you too like Shadrach Meshach and Abednego, of whom in the fire, were seen dancing with “the forth man in the fire looking like The Son of God” and “in whom their was found no hurt on them. And about those who started the fire? They were the ones consumed by the flames.
In closing, God did not leave us ground bound and looking down led by fear, masters, bosses, superiors and Lords. This is the starting point of the recovery called salvation of the image of God who fell in the Garden of Eden to work the earth with the curse, to in turn be restored in the Garden of Gethsemane. The price was paid by “The Lamb slain from the foundations of the world”, and “by His stripes we are healed”.
This is the peace of God. To be in His Son, and not in and of Adam and Eve.
