“Please, let me see Your glory”

Last week we studied how the glory of God was reflected on Moses’ face. This glory was so strong Moses’ face became literally radiant with the presence of God. God’s presence is reflected in the faces of His people. We’re told the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory

Moses glowed with the presence of God, but it was temporary.

So he would actually put a veil over his face so the Israelites would not be able to see that the glow is fading away. The shine from God’s glory came and it went.

Exodus 34:29-30 As Moses descended from Mount Sinai…he did not realize that the skin of his face shone as a result of his speaking with the LORD. 30 When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, the skin of his face shone! They were afraid to come near him.

Exodus 34:34-35 But whenever Moses went before the LORD to speak with Him, he would remove the veil until he came out. After he came out, he would tell the Israelites what he had been commanded, and the Israelites would see that Moses’ face was radiant. Then Moses would put the veil over his face again until he went to speak with the LORD.

Exodus 33:18 Then Moses said, “Please, let me see Your glory

When Moses’ job of interceding for his people with God is done, Moses says to God, ” Please, let me see Your glory.” Can you imagine that?

This has got to be one of the most remarkable moment in human existence to that point. Have you ever asked God that question? ” Please, let me see Your glory.” How would God respond?
