The Glory Of God - The Proof Of His Presence (1 of 6)
Series: The Glory Of God
It is impossible to talk about God and not talk about His glory. The Glory of God is the proof of His presence.
The Glory of God instills a picture in our minds of the majesty and presence of God. We think of the glory of His creation, when God said, LET THERE BE LIGHT, and there was light. We think of Moses and God appearing to him in the burning bush, and the hand of God moving back the waters of the Red Sea into two walls and the children of Israel passing through as on dry land. We think of Moses and the finger of God writing the Ten Commandments on tablets of stone, we think of Moses on the mountain with God and as he descends Mt Sinai his face is shining with the glory of God, we think of Abraham and how the angel of the Lord intervened at the right time and he didn't have to sacrifice his son Isaac. We think of Jesus and the Holy Spirit descending upon Him like a dove and the voice of God the Father coming out of heaven saying ''This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. We think of the miracles He performed, we think of His transfiguration on the mount, we see the blind seeing, and the deaf hearing, the demon-possessed being set free and the dead being raised to life. We see transformed lives, and people that choose to follow Him and are willing to lay down their very lives for the gospel. We see the ordinary become the extraordinary. We see the natural become the supernatural.
In Scripture, the first manifestation of the glory of God was in Genesis when God spoke and His creation came into being, but the word ''glory'' was not revealed in Scripture until Exodus chapter 16 when God appeared to His people in the wilderness in a cloud.
Exodus 16:10 Now it came to pass, as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud.
