Visible Phenomena Accompanying God’s Glory

The Appearance of God’s Glory

4   His brightness was like the light;

He had rays flashing from His hand,

And there His power was hidden.

 

Deuteronomy 5:24 (NKJV)

24 And you said: ‘Surely the Lord our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire. We have seen this day that God speaks with man; yet he still lives.

 

Deuteronomy 5:24 (NKJV)

24 And you said: ‘Surely the Lord our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire. We have seen this day that God speaks with man; yet he still lives.

  

2 Samuel 22:8–16 (NKJV)

8   “Then the earth shook and trembled;

The foundations of heaven quaked and were shaken,

Because He was angry.

9   Smoke went up from His nostrils,

And devouring fire from His mouth;

Coals were kindled by it.

10  He bowed the heavens also, and came down

With darkness under His feet.

11  He rode upon a cherub, and flew;

And He was seen upon the wings of the wind.

12  He made darkness canopies around Him,

Dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

13  From the brightness before Him

Coals of fire were kindled.

14  “The Lord thundered from heaven,

And the Most High uttered His voice.

15  He sent out arrows and scattered them;

Lightning bolts, and He vanquished them.

16  Then the channels of the sea were seen,

The foundations of the world were uncovered,

At the rebuke of the Lord,

At the blast of the breath of His nostrils.

 

God’s glory as a cloud

 Exodus 24:15 (NKJV)

15 Then Moses went up into the mountain, and a cloud covered the mountain. 16 Now the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And on the seventh day He called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud.

then the Lord will create above every dwelling place of Mount Zion, and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night. For over all the glory there will be a covering.

While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!”

27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

 

God’s Glory in the Tabernacle and the Temple

 2 Chronicles 5:13–14 (NKJV)

13 indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying:

For He is good,

For His mercy endures forever,”

that the house, the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud, 14 so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God.

 

2 Chronicles 7:1–3 (NKJV)

Solomon Dedicates the Temple

When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the temple. And the priests could not enter the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house. When all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord on the temple, they bowed their faces to the ground on the pavement, and worshiped and praised the Lord, saying:

“For He is good,

For His mercy endures forever.”

 

Ezekiel 43:1–5 (NKJV)

The Temple, the Lord’s Dwelling Place

1 Afterward he brought me to the gate, the gate that faces toward the east. And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. His voice was like the sound of many waters; and the earth shone with His glory. It was like the appearance of the vision which I saw—like the vision which I saw when I came to destroy the city. The visions were like the vision which I saw by the River Chebar; and I fell on my face. And the glory of the Lord came into the temple by way of the gate which faces toward the east. The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

 

Revelation 15:8 (NKJV)

The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from His power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.

 

Fear God, love God and honor God for the multitude of things he has done in our behalf, the love He has given us and the graciousness he has shown us through His Son and the Holy Spirit.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
