Exodus 33:11(KJV); And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.
Our theme scripture reveals that Moses spoke to God face to face.
However, in Exodus 33:20, the Lord says, “Thou can’t see my face for there shall no man see me and live…”
The Bible also reveals in Genesis 32:27-30 that Jacob had seen God face to face and his life was preserved.
If no man can see the face of God and live, what face of God did Moses and Jacob see?
The Hebrew word for FACE is also translated to mean PRESENCE. It means that there is a degree of the Presence of God that a man can experience and still live. But there is also a degree of the Presence that a man can experience and it kills him.
That is the degree of the Presence in which the glory of flesh fades (1 Corinthians 1:29). When God launches you into this depth of His presence, you understand what it means to truly die in God.
He kills your flesh that your spirit may come live to Him. The extent of the death of the flesh is proportionate to the extent of how alive your spirit becomes to Him.
FURTHER STUDY: Exodus 33:20, 1 Corinthians 1:29
There is a degree of the presence of God that a man can experience and still live. But there is also a degree of the presence that a man can experience and it kills him. That is the degree of the presence in which the glory of flesh fades.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the experiences of the Spirit. Thank you for the manifestation of your presence that intensifies daily upon my life. My spirit is yielded to you Lord. Soak me, bend me, and kill me until I am no more. That men will look at my life and say, “He is not of his own, he is of God.” In Jesus’ name. Amen.
