Show Me Your Glory

 “Then Moses said, ‘I pray You, show me Your glory’. . .and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. . .Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen.” Exodus 33:18-23 

Moses and the Lord had been through much together by this time and now Moses had a deep desire to see the Lord in the manifestation of His glory. Moses was humble and faithful and walked obediently before his God and was now comfortable enough in their relationship to ask to see His glorious Presence.

Oh, brethren, that we would all press through into His Presence. Jesus said the pure in heart will see God and the Book of Hebrews says that the torn flesh of Jesus is the veil we pass through to enter into the Lord’s Divine Presence, -“Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great Priest over the house of God.” Beloved, when we consider that our Father subjected His Son to such brutality to provide a way for us to come into His Presence, let us run without hesitation.

I was raised in a fundamental but spiritually lifeless Church. Then when I was a young adult I was baptized into a Church strong on the teachings of the Word but weak in the Spirit. For 20 years I was settled into my comfort zone. But I was awakened when the Church began to make wholesale changes in many of their doctrines. Soon, I found that the Church had left me behind. I had to reprove everything that I once was so sure was true and found that though most of it was true, there were some important truths missing.

The Church that I had been associated with for all those years did not openly praise and worship God, nor did we seek His Presence. Our approach to God was more intellectual than like a little child hungering for fellowship with his Father.

Now I began to feel like Moses - I wanted to see the Lord! Now I was like David who hungered and thirsted for the Holy Presence. I wanted more than the truth. I wanted more than to know about God. I wanted to feel Him, hear Him and see Him.

Throughout each day I found myself praying to see the Lord. Because the Lord is infinitely awesome in His splendor I would ask that He would be gentle with me when He appeared. The thought of John falling like a dead man when Jesus appeared to him in glory kept coming into my mind, so I would remind the Lord of my frailness and pray -“Please do not frighten me Lord.”

The day the Lord Jesus appeared to me in person, He came as a young man. Though I was the only one who could see Him, He appeared to me as in the flesh. Not in a shining robe, but in a T-shirt and shorts. Like Moses, I did not see His face. But what I did see is Him stretch His long arms over my daughters Sarah and Jeni and kneel with them as they prayed for two girls they had just witnessed to. How sweet and precious it was for the Lord to appear to me in a way that I would never have guessed. That night on Mt. Nebo I was forever changed.
