'I Know You By Name' By: Margaret R. Wilder

One day Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me, ‘Take these people up to the Promised Land.’
But you haven’t told me whom you will send with me.
Who will go with me?
You have told me, ‘I know you by name, and I look favorably on you.’
"IF IT IS TRUE THAT YOU LOOK FAVORABLY ON ME, LET ME KNOW YOUR WAYS"
SO I MAY UNDERSTAND YOU MORE FULLY AND CONTINUE TO ENJOY YOUR FAVOR. AND REMEMBER THAT THIS NATION IS YOUR VERY OWN PEOPLE.”
The Lord replied, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest—everything will be fine for you.”
Then Moses said, “If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place."
"How will anyone know that you look favorably on me—on me and on your people—if you don’t go with us?
For your presence among us sets your people and me apart from all other people on the earth.”
The Lord replied to Moses, “I will indeed do what you have asked, for I look favorably on you, and I know you by name.”
Moses responded, “Then show me your glorious presence.”
The Lord replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will call out my name, Yahweh, before you.
For I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose.
"....But you may not look directly at my face, for no one may see me and live.”
The Lord continued, “Look, stand near me on this rock. As my glorious presence passes by, I will hide you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by.
Then I will remove my hand and let you see me from behind. But my face will not be seen.”

In John 6:44-51 (NLT) Jesus said,

For no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and at the last day I will raise them up.
As it is written in the Scriptures, ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me.
Not that anyone has ever seen the Father; only I, who was sent from God, have seen him.
“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes has eternal life. Yes, I am the bread of life!
Your ancestors ate manna in the wilderness, but they all died.
Anyone who eats the bread from heaven, however, will never die.
I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and this bread, which I will offer so the world may live, is my flesh.”

Later, after Jesus arose from the dead and the time came for him to return to his Father in heaven,

...,,,the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated.
And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted that it was really He.....
Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority all power of absolute rule in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations help the people to learn of Me,
believe in Me, and obey My words,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you;
And lo, I am with you always remaining with you perpetually—regardless of circumstance, and on every occasion, even to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:16-20 (AMP)

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8
