God called Moses up to Mt. Horeb in the Sinai, also known as Mt. Sinai. Exodus 24 records it this way, "When Moses went up on the mountain, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the Lord settled on Mount Sinai. For six days the cloud covered the mountain, and on the seventh day the Lord called to Moses from within the cloud. To the Israelites the glory of the Lord looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain. Then Moses entered the cloud as he went on up the mountain. And he stayed on the mountain forty days and forty nights."
It's hard to imagine how something that looks like a consuming fire from the ground could actually be a cloud, unless the Israelites thought the cloud indicated there was a fire up there somewhere. If it looked like a fire, Moses had to be brave to go up there, even if God was calling.
In any event, we have the glory of God looking like a cloud and looking like a consuming fire. Fire and cloud are both signs of God's glory and guidance in Exodus (see Exodus 3:1 and 14:19). And, as in our last post, it is another occasion when the voice of God came from a cloud.
So our question today is, how do you see God's glory or hear God's call?
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
