The Glowing Face

Why, when Moses spent time in the presence of Yahweh, did his face glow in the dark? (Exodus 34)

Why, when Jesus spent time speaking to His Father, did his face not shine? He was in all ways a man, just like us. We are the place now where His glory dwells. Through us, it is not just a glow, but a power and an evidence of His presence with and in us, not just evidence of having been near Him. We carry Him in the earth as we manifest His desires and instructions.

Now since the children have flesh and blood in common, He also shared in these, so that through His death He might destroy the one holding the power of death—that is, the Devil— and free those who were held in slavery all their lives by the fear of death. For it is clear that He does not reach out to help angels, but to help Abraham’s offspring. Therefore He had to be like His brothers in every way, so that He could become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For since He Himself was tested and has suffered, He is able to help those who are tested.

Therefore, holy brothers and companions in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession; He was faithful to the One who appointed Him, just as Moses was in all God’s household. For Jesus is considered worthy of more glory than Moses, just as the builder has more honor than the house. Now every house is built by someone, but the One who built everything is God. Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s household, as a testimony to what would be said in the future. But Christ was faithful as a Son over His household, whose household we are if we hold on to the courage and the confidence of our hope.
