Glory. I came across some notes I'd written in my Bible, Hebrews 1, from an article by William Greathouse: holiness is...1. separation. God is 'the wholly other:' the first temptation was 'to be like God,' the original sin. 2. purity. Isaiah 6:6 a burning coal, fire, cleanses. Holiness separates us from sin and separates us to God in sanctification 3. glory (kabod), burning splendor, radiance, God is light in whom there is no darkness. Hebrews 1:3, "And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature." And as Moses saw God's back, His glory passing by, he learned-as we heard today in the sermon-God's nature is revealed in Exodus 34:6 "The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin." Glory!
Like my husband said in his sermon, "God wants to open your heart big enough to drive His Holy Spirit through."
