See The Glory

Exodus 33:18 And Moses said, I beseech You, show me Your Glory. There cannot be anything greater and more exalted and more majestic than seeing and intimately experiencing the tangible Presence of God; to see the manifest Glory of God. The Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend; the Lord said to him “I know you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.” With persistence, Moses pleads further with God, Continue Reading

His meeting him there, and the proclamation of his name, Continue Reading

Heaven & Hell (Part 4)

Heaven & Hell – Part 4 Luke 16:31 He [Abraham] said to him, If they do not hear and listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded and convinced and believe if some one should rise from the dead. Abraham reminds the wicked rich man of Lazarus’s present bliss – “now he is comforted and you are tormented”. Heaven is comfort, and hell is torment; heaven is joy, and hell is weeping, gnashing of teeth, and Continue Reading

The People Murmured

Exodus 15:24-25 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? And he cried unto the Lord. How much better this than to rebuke the people, or to threaten to throw up his appointment, or to sit down in despondence, as utterly out of heart! The disciples of John when they had buried their beloved leader went and told Jesus. And in all ages the servants of God have been glad to turn from discouragements and the Continue Reading

Exodus 3:1-6; The Burning Bush; Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. B.C. 1491

Exodus Chapter 3 As prophecy had ceased for many ages before the coming of Christ, that the revival and perfection of it in that great prophet might be the more remarkable, so vision had ceased (for aught that appears) among the patriarchs for some ages before the coming of Moses, that God's appearances to him for Israel's salvation might be the more welcome; and in this chapter we have God's first appearance to him in the bush and the Continue Reading
