Good morning, Family:
Today, we continue our series on Miracles, Signs and Wonders. Today we talk about the magnificent holiness and glory of God.
Now, let me say this. God is 100% pure holiness. God’s holiness and glory is not diluted by anything. Because of the richness of God’s holiness, we as humans have to approach God in a special way.
In Exodus 3, when Moses was standing near the burning bush, God commanded him to remove his shoes because the ground he was standing on was holy.
In Exodus 33 Moses asks so see God’s glory and this is God’s response:
Living Bible (TLB)
17 And the Lord had replied to Moses, “Yes, I will do what you have asked, for you have certainly found favor with me, and you are my friend.” 18 Then Moses asked to see God’s glory. 19 The Lord replied, “I will make my goodness pass before you, and I will announce to you the meaning of my name Jehovah, the Lord. I show kindness and mercy to anyone I want to. 20 But you may not see the glory of my face, for man may not see me and live. 21 However, stand here on this rock beside me. 22 And when my glory goes by, I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed. 23 Then I will remove my hand, and you shall see my back but not my face.”
So many people are casual with God, but if there was true understanding of the character and nature of God, I believe we would approach life as a believer differently.
Seek the Lord while he may be found.
