Exodus Chapter 33 Summary


Exodus Chapter 33 Summary

Exodus Chapter 33 Summary

The Lord comes to a final decision here in chapter 33, that He will send an angel to go with the children of Israel into the lands of the Canaanites.

God made sure Moses told the people God is ready and willing to destroy all of the children of Israel in a moment because of their sin.

Moses took the tabernacle and set it outside the camp, far from the people and officially named it the Tabernacle of the Congregation. Who ever wanted to seek God had to go outside of the camp to the tabernacle of the congregation to do so.

The people would witness Moses going to the tabernacle and the cloudy pillar would come down as Moses entered in. It is written in this chapter that God spoke to Moses face to face, like a man speaks to his friend.

In the relationship build, Moses asks to actually see God, and this was if he had found any grace from God. Moses only heard a voice coming from the cloud behind the veil all the time he communed with God.

God told Moses that He will show him His presence and goodness to pass before him. Nevertheless, Moses was not allowed to see God’s face, in fact, no man could see God’s face and live! God gave Moses his instructions of how the situation will go; Moses will get to see the back portion of body of God, but not God’s face.

Please it to the Most High God to add blessings to the reading and doing of His Holy Word through His Son Jesus Christ. So Be It!

    My comment is why the Back part of God? Whether in the body or out of the body, I do not know, but it was real to me, an experience I have never had before, but as I met the Almighty and embraced him (not seeing His face, I said to Him ” I love you, I truly do” then looking over His shoulder I could see the most glistening White Robe that He had on – Nothing on this earth to compare. ( My interruption is that you half to get Close enough to God in meeting him, that you look over His shoulder—-And although I have lived for God all my life, served him, sang, preached His word, I am now learning that God is very present with me- — I just wanted to share this truth, that to see God’s back part, you must embrace his front part, but look over His shoulder and you never see His face. I hope this blesses you, as this experience still lingers with me today, and it is Holy to me, God is a Holy God- and He wants to get close to us. We serve an Awesome God. God Bless.
