The Lord Speaks in Dreams with His Prophets! (as Told in The Bible)

I was just reading my daily fare of a few pages of the Bible from online sources when I chanced upon this reading. It’s that specific part of the Bible where the Lord voices out plainly that he speaks in dreams with his prophets.  I was also curious why the story teller / author was not saying exactly, or using the exact name of the “Most Omnipotent One” whom we usually call “God” these days. What was the name, really? Needless to say, this is greatly awesome!

Numbers 12:1-13
1 Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses on the pretext of the marriage he had contracted with a Cushite woman. 2 They complained, “Is it  through Moses alone that the LORD speaks? Does he not speak through us also?” And the LORD heard this. 3 Now, Moses himself was by far the meekest man on the face of the earth. 4 So at once the LORD said to Moses and Aaron and Miriam, “Come out, you three, to the meeting tent.” And the three of them went. 5 Then the LORD came down in the column of cloud, and standing at the entrance of the tent, called Aaron and Miriam. When both came forward, 6 he said, “Now listen to the words of the LORD, ‘Should there be a prophet among you, in visions will I reveal myself to him, in dreams will I speak to him; 7 Not so with my servant Moses! Throughout my house he bears my trust; 8 face to face I speak to him, plainly and not in riddles. The presence of the LORD he beholds. Why, then, did you not fear to speak against my servant Moses?’” 9 So angry was the LORD against them that when he departed, 10 and the cloud withdrew from the tent, there was Miriam, a snow white leper! When Aaron turned and saw her a leper, 11 “Ah, my lord!” he said to Moses, “please do not charge us with the sin that we have foolishly committed! 12 Let her not thus be like the stillborn babe that comes forth from its mother’s womb with its flesh half consumed.” 13 Then Moses cried to the LORD, “Please, not this! Pray, heal her!”
