Do you have the glow? (Sweet repeat from May 8, 2018)

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

The account of Moses meeting God on Mount Sinai is remarkable.  After being together for many days, Moses descended the mountain with the two tablets containing the ten commandments and he spoke to the Israelites.  The people were afraid, because his faced glowed as a result of being in the presence of God.  As a result, Moses would wear a veil around the people, but remove it when encountering God.  

On an early blog post, I reported my wife’s near-death experience.  Here are some more details about it.  When her heart stopped beating, she arrived at a translucent veil that separated her from Heaven.  She could see through it and yearned to enter, but that didn’t happen.  Her sense was that once she passed through the veil, she would never return to earth.  

The light in the distance radiated a brilliant orange-yellow glow.  it reminded her of a sunset, but one much bigger and brighter than anything she had ever seen.  Nothing escaped being illuminated.  She could see many people milling about, and she felt they were tremendously happy.  Two rows of people lined up so that she could pass through the veil and walk between them, but that didn’t happen.  

Here’s the interesting part.  Their faces glowed radiantly.  She could make out facial outlines but specific features were hidden by the orange-yellow illumination, which matched the color of the primary glow in the distance.  

It doesn’t take much for one to feel that what my wife observed resembled Moses’ appearance after meeting God.  The description that she provided when her near-death occurred matches the Exodus record regarding Moses.  I don’t know about you, but her story inspires me!  It makes me look forward to a future move to Heaven.  

Do you have the glow?  

Prayer:  God, we adore and worship you.  Thank you for being the light of the world.
