“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

Jesus spoke for Jehovah in the Old Testament

Jesus was the Creator during the Old Testament
“All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:3).

“That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I AM [Jehovah], and there is none else.” (Isa. 45:6).

“I [Jehovah] form the light.” (Isa. 45:7).

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I AM the light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.… Then said they unto Him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know Me, nor My Father: if ye had known Me, ye should have known My Father also.” (John 8:12,19).

“Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: for by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.” (Col. 1:15-17).

Jesus was the Judge and Lawgiver during the Old Testament
 “When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory: and before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats.” (Matt. 25:31,2).

“Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous round about Him.
He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that He may judge His people.” (Ps. 50:2-4).

“O worship [Jehovah] in the beauty of holiness: fear before Him, all the earth.
Say among the heathen that [Jehovah] reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: He shall judge the people righteously.
Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.
Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice
Before [Jehovah]: for He cometh, for He cometh to judge the earth: He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with His truth.” (Ps. 96:9-13).

“For [Jehovah] shall judge His people, and repent Himself for His servants, when He seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left…. Rejoice, O ye nations, with His people: for He will avenge the blood of His servants, and will render vengeance to His adversaries, and will be merciful unto His land, and to His people.” (Deut. 32:36,43).

“For [Jehovah] will judge His people, and He will repent Himself concerning His servants.” (Ps. 135:14).

“And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power; when He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.” (2Thess 1:7-10).

“For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord [God’s word, the Old Testament scriptures in Paul’s day], that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” (1Thess. 4:15-17).

Taken altogether, these scriptures say that Jesus was the one referred to by David and Moses as Jehovah who would come to judge, as Christ and the apostles also proclaimed.

“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: that all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent Him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” (John 5:22-24).

The Son, the Word of God, was the Rock of the Old Testament
“Hearken to Me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek [Jehovah]: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him. For [Jehovah] shall comfort Zion: He will comfort all her waste places; and He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of [Jehovah]; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody. Hearken unto Me, My people; and give ear unto Me, O My nation: for a law shall proceed from Me, and I will make My judgment to rest for a light of the people. My righteousness is near; My salvation is gone forth, and Mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon Me, and on Mine arm shall they trust.” (Isa. 51:1-5).

I will publish the name of [Jehovah]: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He.” (Deut. 32:3,4).

“And [the children of Israel] did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.” (1Cor. 10:4).

“Thou sawest till that a Stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth…. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the Stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.” (Dan. 2:34,35,44,45).

“Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the Stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner.” (1Pet. 2:7).

“Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The Stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this Stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.” (Matt. 21:42-44).

“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this Rock I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matt. 16:18).

Jesus was the Angel who delivered Israel from Egypt and fought for them against the Canaanites
“Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared. Beware of Him, and obey His voice, provoke Him not; for He will not pardon your transgressions: for My name is in Him.” (Ex. 23:20,21).

“Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, Mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.” (Ex. 32:34).

“And I will send an Angel before thee; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite: unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee in the way.” (Ex. 33:2,3).

“This is [Moses], that was in the church in the wilderness with the Angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us.” (Acts 7:38).

“And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an Angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.
When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him,
Saying, I AM the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold.
Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground.
I have seen, I have seen the affliction of My people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt.
This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the Angel which appeared to him in the bush.
He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.” (Acts 7:30-36).

“And the Angel of [Jehovah] appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt.
And when [Jehovah] saw that he turned aside to see, [Elohim] called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
Moreover he said, I am [Elohim] of thy father, [Elohim] of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and [Elohim] of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
And [Jehovah] said, I have surely seen the affliction of My people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;…
And [Elohim] said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.” (Ex. 3:2-7,14).

The Angel of Jehovah was Jehovah. In other words, Jesus, the Angel of His Father assumed His Father’s place of Lordship over Israel and over fallen humanity. Jesus has been the advocate for delivering us from Satan’s captivity since the Garden of Eden. No one can come to Jehovah apart from coming through Jesus.

“And  [Jehovah] said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.” (Ex. 4:21).

“And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt. But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay My hand upon Egypt, and bring forth Mine armies, and My people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. And the Egyptians shall know that I am [Jehovah], when I stretch forth Mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.” (Ex. 7:3-5).

“And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is [Jehovah’s] passover. For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I AM [Jehovah]. And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to [Jehovah] throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.” (Ex. 12:11-14).

Jehovah the Son, the master of riddles and parables, spoke for Jehovah His Father, and for Himself. Jesus spoke as the Jehovah of Israel and the Angel of Jehovah. He, speaking in the authority and voice of Jehovah, had spoken of Himself as the Angel that He would send with Moses. Likewise, He also spoke of His own incarnation and ministry. He was Jehovah who spoke of Himself, whom He would later send to be His Servant. This wasn’t deceptive; it was discrete. It was too soon to open to Israel the beautiful truth of the Dual Godhead Father and Son, lest Satan would rapidly inject the pervasive polytheism of Babylon into the holy Hebrew religion. Not until they could be introduced to the purity, self-denying, and self-sacrificing character of Jehovah’s Son, and the Early Rain of the Father’s Spirit fall upon them could they know the truth of the Godhead and be kept from the intense draw of the prevailing idolatry.

The reality was that Christ, the Word of Jehovah, spoke to the prophets as Jehovah, in the name of His Father Jehovah. “Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.” (1Pet. 1:10,11).

“Behold My Servant, whom I have chosen; My Beloved, in whom My soul is well pleased: I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear His voice in the streets. A bruised reed shall He not break, and smoking flax shall He not quench, till He send forth judgment unto victory. And in His name shall the Gentiles trust.” (Matt. 12:18-21).

“Behold My Servant, whom I uphold; Mine elect, in whom My soul delighteth; I have put My Spirit upon Him: He shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause His voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed shall He not break, and the smoking flax shall He not quench: He shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till He have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for His law. Thus saith [El Jehovah], He that created the heavens, and stretched them out; He that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; He that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein.” (Isa. 42:1-5).

“For I am [Jehovah] thy [Elohim], the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.” (Isa. 43:3).

“And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy Him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at His doctrine.” (Mark 11:18).

“Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not Mine, but His that sent Me. If any man will do His will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of Myself.” (John 7:16,17).

“This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A Prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto Me; Him shall ye hear.” (Acts 7:37).

“[Jehovah] thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto Me; unto Him ye shall hearken;
According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.
I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put My words in His mouth; and He shall speak unto them all that I shall command Him.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto My words which He shall speak in My name, I will require it of him.” (Deut. 18:15-19).

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31,32).

“Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM [Jehovah]. Then took they up stones to cast at Him: but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.” (John 8:58,59).

Jesus, the Son of Jehovah, took His Father’s name, and represented Him throughout the whole Old Testament. When we see Jesus we see the Jehovah of the Old Testament. When we hear who we think to be Jehovah in the Old Testament, we really are hearing Jesus, His Father’s spokesperson, the living Word of Jehovah. No one hears the Father Jehovah but by His chosen Representative, His Son. Jesus has always been and will always be Jehovah’s thoughts made audible.

“Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORDH3068 [Jehovah]? and there is no GodH430 [Elohim] else beside me; a just GodH410 [‘Êl] and a Saviour; there is none beside me.” (Isa. 45:21). “Him [Jesus] hath God [Theos] exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.” (Acts 5:31).

“I and My Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from My Father; for which of those works do ye stone Me? The Jews answered Him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself GodG2316.” (John 10:30-33).

“And again, when He bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, He saith, And let all the angels of God worship Him….
Unto the Son [He saith], Thy throne, O God,G2316 is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God,G2316 even thy God,G2316 hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
And, Thou, Lord,G2962 [Kurios] in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thine hands:
They shall perish; but Thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
And as a vesture shalt Thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail.
But to which of the angels said He at any time, Sit on My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool?” (Heb. 1:6,8-13).

Jesus, the Creator Jehovah
Below is about the NT expression: “God made”. Who was the Creator God? In the following verses the Greek Theos was the Hebrew Elohim.
“From the beginning of the creation God [Theos] made them male and female.” (Mark 10:6).
 “This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that GodH430 [Elohim] created man, in the likeness of GodH430 [Elohim] made He him;
Male and female created He them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.” (Gen. 5:1,2).
“So GodH430 [Elohim] created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.” (Gen. 1:27).

“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORDH3068 GodH430 [Jehovah Elohim] made the earth and the heavens,… And the LORDH3068 GodH430 [Jehovah Elohim] formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” (Gen. 2:1-4,7).

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with GodG2316 [Theos], and the Word was GodG2316 [Theos]. The same was in the beginning with GodG2316 [Theos]. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:1-3).

“Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in GodG2316 [Theos], who created all things by Jesus Christ: to the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of GodG2316 [Theos], according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Eph. 3:8-11).

Jesus was the great broker of Old Testament covenants
“Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which GodG2316 [Theos] made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.” (Acts 3:25).
“For when GodG2316 [Theos] made promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no greater, He sware by Himself, saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.” (Heb. 6:13,14).

“Now the LORDH3068 [Jehovah] had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. So Abram departed, as the LORDH3068 [Jehovah] had spoken unto him.” (Gen. 12:1-4).

“And, behold, the word of the LORDH3068 [Jehovah] came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.
And He brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
And he believed in the LORDH3068 GodH430 [Jehovah Elohim]; and He counted it to him for righteousness.” (Gen. 15:4-6).

“And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORDH3068 [Jehovah] appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty GodH410 [El]; walk before Me, and be thou perfect.
And I will make My covenant between Me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
And Abram fell on his face: and GodH430 [Elohim] talked with him, saying,
As for Me, behold, My covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.
And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
And I will establish My covenant between Me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a GodH430 [Elohim] unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their GodH430 [Elohim]….
But My covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.
And He left off talking with him, and GodH430 [Elohim] went up from Abraham.” (Gen. 17:1,8,21,22).

“And it came to pass after these things, that GodH430 [Elohim] did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am.
And He said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of….
And they came to the place which GodH430 [Elohim] had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
And the Angel of [Jehovah] called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest GodH430 [Elohim], seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from Me.
And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORDH3068 [Jehovah] it shall be seen.
And the Angel of [Jehovah] called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
And said, By Myself have I sworn, saith [Jehovah], for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed My voice.” (Gen. 22:1-18).

The angel of Jehovah speaks as Jehovah Elohim, who Paul said was God. Therefore, GodG2316 [Theos] of Hebrews 6:13,14 was the LORDH3068 [Jehovah] of Genesis 12, 15, 18, and 22, the Son of God, God’s Angel.

It was Jesus who overwhelmed the prophets by His power 
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne.” (Rev. 3:21).

“Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: and they saw the God of Israel: and there was under His feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in His clearness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel He laid not His hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink.” (Ex. 24:9-11).
“And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a Man above upon it. And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of His loins even upward, and from the appearance of His loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about. As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of [Jehovah]. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face.” (Eze. 1:26-28).

“His body also was like the beryl, and His face as the appearance of lightning, and His eyes as lamps of fire, and His arms and His feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of His words like the voice of a multitude. And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves. Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength. Yet heard I the voice of His words: and when I heard the voice of His words, then was I in a deep sleep on my face, and my face toward the ground.” (Dan. 10:6-9).

And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; and His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters. And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shineth in His strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead.” (Rev. 1:13-17).

At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And I said, Who art Thou, Lord? And He said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.” (Acts 26:13-15).

“Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon Him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? They answered Him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am He. And Judas also, which betrayed Him, stood with them. As soon then as He had said unto them, I am He, they went backward, and fell to the ground.” (John 18:4-6).
 
Jesus has all authority and power; no one else can speak in Jehovah’s name and to reveal Him to mankind
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.” (Matt. 28:18).

“All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him.” (Matt. 11:27).

“Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not the Father [Jehovah]. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father [Jehovah] and the Son [of Jehovah].” (2Jn. 1:9).
“Whosoever denieth the Son [of Jehovah], the same hath not the Father [Jehovah].” (1Jn. 2:23).

Since no one knows the Father, then the Jehovah you love in the Old Testament is really Jesus, the Son of Jehovah. Praise both their names.
“And they sung a new song, saying, Thou [the Lamb] art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
And hast made us unto our GodG2316 [Theos] kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.” (Rev. 5:9-13).
