What is that referring to?
It's referring to Moses. We are not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face to keep the Israelites from gazing at it while the radiance was fading away. Some of God's glory had been imparted to him while he was speaking with God, so he put a veil over his face until he went back into his presence Exodus — Why did he do that?
How did Moses get God's glory? He got the glory by speaking to God and being in his presence. How do we get the glory? In the same way that Moses did: by speaking to God and spending time in his presence—particularly by praying in tongues, which is perfect prayer inspired by the Spirit of God.
But, unlike Moses, we're not to put a veil over our face when we speak to people. The scripture says: 'And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory. We're like little mirrors that God uses to shine his light on the earth. We reflect God's nature and character as we walk around—or we should do!
So what is the glory? What is this Shekinah Glory?
Is it everything God is exploding within our atmosphere? As we consider this let us look at the possible ramifications as well. He felt as, he was standing there screaming because of the awesome presence of God that 1. He was sure God was about to kill him and 2. He was sure that God had every right to do just that. On the Jewish side it was bright and friendly but on the Egyptian side it was dark and foreboding with lightning and thundering. The Jewish side would be representative of an obedient people whereas the Egyptian side would represent the disobedient.
The God that led the people of Israel out of bondage through the river on dry land led the Egyptian army into the river to be destroyed. Just like Ananias, and Sapphira experienced, for bringing an evil heart into the presence of God , they were immediately dispatched. And she said, Yea, for so much.
The first-century A. To whom the whole of His Servants With sweet-sounding voices sing praises. From this Scripture we see that the "pillar of cloud… and fire" that was going before the people Ex "the LORD was going before them" , protected them from the Egyptian army and that this is was not just any "angel" but was the Angel of God which is most likely a description of the pre incarnate Messiah. The next specific reference is in first Kings but there is an indirect reference to Ichabod the glory has departed after the reference to 1Sa click here Ex And the Angel of God , who had been going before the camp of Israel, moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud moved from before them and stood behind them. Thither my Parents did send me,. Also, this meaning is in general use among many Christians -- even though they are generally ignorant of the origin of the word.
Reverend William Branham is another example of harsh judgment over what I would call run-of-the-mill disobedience. There would be few of us left if we were held to the same standard that these men were but then again there are very very few of us that have experienced the power of God the way they did. The impression that I have gotten is of God telling me that he longs to bring his presence ever closer but the wickedness of our hearts could put us in jeopardy. Here's how I see it. If we had an obstacle course with 24 inch concrete walls disbursed at odd angles along the course and you had to weave in and out between these walls to make it through then depending on your speed there might be some negative consequences.
If you are riding a motorcycle at about 3 to 5 mph you would probably make it through just fine. Even if you did slip up and make a mistake the consequences would be pretty minimal. Let's say you were on the same motorcycle and went through this obstacle course at mph. Then you would have a very low tolerance for error.
And the slight mistake could have a devastating outcome. That seems to explain the difference how a nominal Christian might make it through life differently than someone contending and experiencing God in a very powerful way. A Christian who has an opportunity to walk in third heaven experience with God has a totally different responsibility and how they conduct themselves. Even Moses was prevented from entering the Promised Land because of a disobedient that seems so small in relationship to what American Christians do every day.

But then I think we have confused Santa Claus and God in our minds. Disobedience has a consequence. Now I know none of us are without sin and you might say that God could kill all of us based on the above understanding. None of us will ever reach perfection this side of glory. God has not given us the spirit of fear but he does expect our obedience and humility. So it seems to me that the closer we get to the manifested presence of God the more he expects of us to humbly and obediently following his voice.
The cleaner we are the less we stink in his presence.
But if we confess our sins and allow him to work on those issues then we, as imperfect human beings, can boldly enter into His presence. And imperfect? Still having issues with our flesh? But covered by His blood and we stand before him as the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. The prophecies from the Azusa Street revival indicated a greater manifestation of this presents so that seems to me that God would expect a greater level of obedience.
God loves us and in some ways has to keep his distance. But not only was a place provided based on the pattern from heaven but they also washed themselves before entering his present. Example of a place and proper preparation. First we see that everybody was in unity and focused on a common goal.
What I see here is moving from one move of God to another. They were moving from the tent that David set up to the Temple of Solomon built. And Solomon brought in the things which David his father had dedicated, [even] the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, and put them in the treasuries of the house of Jehovah. And as we will see God moves in a brand-new way. How difficult it is to maintain the separation from things that can only be called religion, because we have an emotional attachment. It appears that the Azusa Street revival ended up splitting along racial lines even though Reverend Seymour worked diligently to have an integrated church.
Charles Parham, insulted by the racial compositon of the meetings and emotionalism brought the first major split. Many others followed. Two ladies in the disscenters took the main mailing lists crippling The Apostolic Faith newspaper. The form and ritual of past revivals or moves of God: We remember brother Jesse spending hours at the altar crying out to God to save him and he got his breakthrough. Are we saved?
What emotional need were we satisfying with all those tears and gyrations?
Religion adds this wall of useless activity between us and God. Wood, hay and stubble. God is pleased with our appropriate sacrifices unto him. For this is part of making the highway straight for our God.
Psalm For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering. I find it interesting that the holy of holiness was also called the Oracle of the house. And how sad is that that much of the church thinks God has stopped talking years ago.
How can we follow Jesus' example of only doing what he sees the father do and only saying what he hears the father say. As the two tablets of the law were in the Ark of the covenant, today God wants us to have that law written in our hearts. But religion would have us try to maintain this within our minds or flesh. God is not looking for a trick dog or parrot who can repeat slogans, he wants a people who express his life from the heart. To hear and obey. Immediately its beauty is compromised and over time as the plastic becomes discolored the paintings beauty is utterly destroyed.
Now the painting itself might still be in its original condition inside, but our ability to appreciate it is compromised.
