I mean, that cloud being there certainly did not stop Israel from worshiping Baal, from worshiping other gods, even as the cloud was present. And consider that this nation is Your people. We don't know. endstream endobj 126 0 obj <>/Size 94/Type/XRef>>stream

By striving? I can’t run across the country without stopping, etc.)

Everyone has fallen short of the glory of God. In fact, the absence of wrath reveals the absence of love. And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and the fourth generation.

Change ). I love what Job is getting at.

We have the same glory as they do! What God reveals in Jesus Christ is what gives us glory. Well, throughout the Scriptures, we read of this glory that the Hebrews would call the shekinah glory. Really I'm just going to keep arguing that the way spiritual, ethical, moral transformation actually occurs is not via your striving but rather your being. (I know, I know, so MUCH I haven’t talked about on the subject, but wanted to keep to a main focus.). But, He punctuated it with this glorious presence in the tabernacle.

You can't hide that! 0000000016 00000 n And on the seventh day He called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud. The type of white-hot wrath he has against sin is so significant it cannot be overstated. It's for your beautiful name I pray, amen. Your accusation is, "You don't know what's good.

Here's my question, and then we're going to pray. 0000011469 00000 n And that's why the ark and the Shekinah are associated with one another. They fell on their faces, and they worshiped.

The Bible speaks about the transference of the glory of God to the glory that we need.

Did Jeremiah carry it to Egypt? That's how they imagined God—something very remote, something that one could not understand, something that a person could not wrap his mind around, or get to know.

Now, this is why Isaiah cried, "I am undone!" That's an example. Here's what happens. In another place He was the commander of the Hosts of the Lord.

This, I believe, is why John started his Gospel the way that he did. Look at her body. We're going to preach the Word of God, but I have a little "-costal" in me too, all right? 0000077588 00000 n

We're going to look at this Shekinah, which is the glorious presence of God, and it's significance to us in these seven days of the feast, and really throughout our Christian lives, because the pillar didn't leave Israel after these seven days. Then the mountain doesn't solve the longing; it just helps us sense it.

Saying your prayers at night, hopping in the swimming pool, giving yourself over to love and to serve are means of grace God is using to shape. The Jews definition of the Shekinah, post-Ezra actually, originated because the rabbis of the time—the lawyers and what-not—desired to actually dehumanize God. Wildly different!

And then it took us all over the wilderness wherever God decides to send us in this trek to...where? I am perfect. Therefore, death reigns in us all. 16:27: LUKE 2:9. Remember Abraham running around trying to get that bullock, or whatever it was ready for the three travelers who came to visit him, whom he knew immediately to be God, and two angels.

And when they started to pick up stones, we have...whooopf...this tremendous, burning cloud appearing so that all the congregation of Israel could see. Again, we've already covered it. Father, I thank you for your glory.

"I will make all my goodness pass before you." We can see these huge thunderclouds come across the sky. And what happens when we get the fullness of the spirit?

I am certainly not working my way toward pool party with an 8-year-old.

C.S. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.". Finally, we will give thought to the glory of God and the Christian. [This goes all the way back to Genesis 1:1.]

John 17:20-22 I do not pray for these alone [the eleven that were with Him], but also for those who will believe in Me through their word [that's us]; that they all may be one [unified], as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

Only then do we experience His glory. This is God spitting nails! We go to Everest, and we feel small. We are servants. At this point, you're probably thinking, "This is a terrible sermon! The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory! They may not have. It's thunder and rumbling.

You just followed the cloud around.

So Moses went into the midst of the cloud and went up into the mountain. God's glory to Him is His holy, righteous, perfect character. I know you're not a liar. You can experience the atmosphere of heaven within and around you. We just trust that God is able. Get it done." Look back at verse 1.

That the real glory of God was not the flaming fire, it was all these attributes that God had: the longsuffering, the mercy, the grace, the goodness and truth, the forgiveness. Grace being the beauty of God's love and goodwill toward us, in addition to all the gifts that He freely gives—all the helps and aids that He allows us so that we can make it through this life.

Did Nebuchadnezzar carry it back to Babylon? If all of that just is choking you and it's seeped into how you understand God relates to you, you're just hyper aware of all the ways you've fallen short and all the ways God can't love you and why and this and that and this, just go read the Gospels. So, all the people had to do, if they felt that somehow God had abandoned them, was look in the direction of the tabernacle and they could see—day or night—this tremendous thundercloud, glorious with fire, and know that God was there.

So, the human mind could recognize His presence. Keep this in mind, brothers and sisters. "You have to play it in the pool."

Surely something in my 8-year-old's little soul got a glimpse of God's grace, got a glimpse of God's playfulness, got a glimpse of God's love by knowing her old man doesn't like to get in the pool at 9:30 at night but did this one time.

They're in us. We were in the same neighborhood at one point, and they've moved on to multiple other neighborhoods.

The mercy seat was on top of the ark, which contained the law, an omer of manna and Aaron's rod, which established two things: The manna symbolized God's providence and grace; and the rod of Aaron symbolized the authority of the priesthood.
