Advent Unfolding – Day 7





 Week 1 – Revelation

Day 7 – Glory


From the beginning, God desired to  dwell with his creation.  In the garden, he would walk with Adam & Eve in the cool of the day.

God spoke to Moses “face to face” out of a cloud. When Moses asked to see God’s glory, God told Him, “You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.”  But He graciously hid Moses in the cleft of a rock, covered him with His hand, and passed by so he could be in the midst of his glory.  

God asked the Israelites too build him a tabernacle, so He could dwell with them.  "Let them construct a sanctuary for Me, that I may dwell among them. There I will meet with you; and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, I will speak to you." 

Jesus came to be the dwelling place of God’s glory. Hebrews 1:3 states, The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of His nature, upholding all things by His powerful word.  And in John 17:22 Jesus said, "The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one.”

So the dwelling God transferred His glory from a cloud by day and fire by night to a temporary dwelling place in the  tabernacle, through His Son in human form and finally in His creation through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.  We were created to be a reflection of His glory, His beauty to the world.

So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord--who is the Spirit--makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.  2 Corinthians 3:18

In the morning, I pray for my sweet Jonathan, before  he goes off to school. As I pray for him I remind him that he is a reflection of his Heavenly Father’s Glory, and he just smiles.
