Day 9 Sacred Season 2015
DAY 9. 17th June A Radiant face: Exodus 34:29-35
Rev (Aunty) Dorothy Gordon Harris. Elder Congress
When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord (Exodus 34:29 NIV)
Basis of Union: Paragraph 8: Thus the people of God, through faith and the gift and
power of the Holy Spirit, have communion with their Saviour, make their sacrifice
of praise and thanksgiving, proclaim the Lordâs death, grow together into Christ, are
strengthened for their participation in the mission of Christ in the world, and rejoice in
the foretaste of the Kingdom which Christ will bring to consummation.
When Moses come down from Mt Sinai with two tablets of testimony in his hand he was not aware that his face was radiant , because he has spoken with the Lord God .
The skin of his face shone while he talked with him . The glory of God in Moses radiated forth rays of glory
This implies that they had fled from Moses when they saw his Glory.
When Moses had finished speaking with them he put a veil over himself.
Whenever Moses went in before the Lord to speak with him he would remove the veil until he came out. The veil speaks to me of a covering or curtain. To me it speaks of total obedience and radical in obedience.
He did not know his face was shining. This symbolizes power and might.
