Calvin Miller (author of The Singer): "I have always been a bit reluctant to give God the credit for anything, in case he doesn't want the credit. D. James Kennedy tells the story about a woman who came to him with a poem 'that the Holy Spirit gave me.' After he read the poem, he said that to accuse the Holy Spirit of a poem like that was not fair to God."

The Name Of The Lord Revealed To Moses
Previous to the revelation of Messiah (the answer to the riddle posed below of how God can be both forgiving and punishing) this was the clearest description of the Name of the Lord given to mankind.Ex 3:13-15 (NIV) Moses said to God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' Then what shall I tell them?" God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.'" God also said to Moses, "Say to the Israelites, 'The Lord, the God of your fathers--the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob--has sent me to you.' This is my name for ever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation."
Ex 34:5-7 (NIV) Then the Lord came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed his name, the Lord. And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, "The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation."

Rom 10:6-9 (NKJ) But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, "Do not say in your heart, 'Who will ascend into heaven?'" (that is, to bring Christ down from above) or," 'Who will descend into the abyss?'" (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Isa 57:15 (NIV) "For this is what the high and lofty One says--he who lives for ever, whose name is holy: 'I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.'"
