16 They set out from Elim, and all the congregation of the people of Israel came to the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had departed from the land of Egypt. 2 And the whole congregation of the people of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness, 3 and the people of Israel said to them, “Would that we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the meat pots and ate bread to the full, for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.”
4 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I am about to rain bread from heaven for you, and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in my law or not. 5 On the sixth day, when they prepare what they bring in, it will be twice as much as they gather daily.”
6 So Moses and Aaron said to all the people of Israel, “At evening you shall know that it was the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, 7 and in the morning you shall see the glory of the Lord, because he has heard your grumbling against the Lord. For what are we, that you grumble against us?”
8 And Moses said, “When the Lord gives you in the evening meat to eat and in the morning bread to the full, because the Lord has heard your grumbling that you grumble against him—what are we? Your grumbling is not against us but against the Lord.”
9 Then Moses said to Aaron, “Say to the whole congregation of the people of Israel, ‘Come near before the Lord, for he has heard your grumbling.’”
10 And as soon as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the people of Israel, they looked toward the wilderness,
the glory of the Lord
appeared in the cloud.
We are all aware of Manna. The miracle Aaron placed into the Ark of the Covenant. There are so many signs of God, we sometimes miss something filled with wonder.
Let's take some time and wonder what the Glory of God looks like in a Cloud. This Glory also occurs, later, when Solomon builds the Temple David lovingly planned and set aside the materials.
Was this a Visible Crown for the King of Kings?
Or perhaps this was a Display of God's Favorite Color surrounding His Throne in Revelation.
Was this The Lord God Almighty showing Manna?
Did the Sky Open to Reveal the Cloud by Day and the Glory of God?
This might have been the preliminary announcement of the Star of Bethlehem, the Star of David.
This photo is said to be a rare occurrence called Sky Punch.
And perhaps God was tired of complaints, complaints from the many, many wonders a Mighty Father had given to the Children of Israel.
Or The Hand of God feeds His Children. This display nourished the Children of God.
This Cloud is explained during the Dedication of the Temple as being too dense to see through.
We will all know the answer One Fine Day in Jesus the Lord.
And we know this today:
God's Word is Living and God spoke:
Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years."
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
For what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.
The heavens will praise Your wonders, O LORD; Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.
The heavens declare His righteousness, And all the peoples have seen His glory.
All Your works shall give thanks to You, O LORD, And Your godly ones shall bless You.
Blessed are You Lord God Almighty. Blessed be the Joy You had in Creation and the Goodness. Setting Your Holy Spirit above the waters.
Seeing that much Glory makes me aware, very. Seeing Your Glory, profoundly reminds me of my size. God is God. We are not. Profoundly glad, Father, not to be God. You tell Your Messengers "Fear Not!"
Blessed be Jesus, God of God, Light of Light.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus - we have boldness and confidence to know - the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart is seen in Your Heart. We know our prayers are safe, and known, to You.
We give You Thanks. Praise God that the Glory of God is His. His Might, His Wonder and His Wisdom. Upon His Name Jesus we are covered and grateful for His Righteousness.
JESUS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! Abba our Father, God of Gods. Amen.
