Moses stands in a fading glory you stand in an increasing glory
We are selling ourselves short in this age of political correctness with our church models of seeker sensitive services and a grace message that doesn’t believe in hell or demons, In a time when men exercise incredible control in “Christian” organizations and our message is watered down to a pittance of its true strength and power.

We are selling ourselves short when you consider what Paul said in 2 Corinthians 3:7-18 – He declares that the New Covenant demonstrates a far greater glory than that of the Old covenant of Moses. He calls the Old Covenant a “Fading Glory” and the New Covenant an increasing Glory.

He then challenges us with these words – “Shouldn’t we expect a far greater glory under the New Covenant? Now that the Holy Spirit is delivering life”

We read this scripture and think – Wow yes we are so blessed to be living in a New Covenant glory, this is true but we neglect to meditate on the glory that was seen in the Old Covenant, which Paul says is a fading glory.

The Glory that Moses experienced was amazing, from a fire in a bush that didn’t consume, to Moses and at least seventy four others having lunch with God on a sea of Sapphire stones (Exodus 24:11) From a fire that stood over them by night and a cloud by day to the sea rolling back to allow up to three million people to walk on dry land. Moses and Israel saw and walked in a glory we don’t see in Church, they saw God in the dark cloud that covered the mountain and they gathered their breakfast off the ground every day, they walked in clothes and shoes that never wore out, they lived in the total provision of God. They received the living Torah engraved in stones and they saw all their enemies defeated before them.

Yes the Old covenant resonated with the sights and sounds of Gods glory, in ways that would make even the most skeptical among them become believers in the God of Israel. IN fact many from other nations joined themselves to Israel because of the glory they were seeing demonstrated. Even the day they left Egypt many from the nations joined them Exodus 12:37-38.

Many dismiss and even despise the Old Covenant without considering its fading glory. If this glory was fading, then as Sons what is greater glory of the New Covenant we are called to walk in? If the release of Torah saw the demonstrations of glory I’ve mentioned above and much more, then what level of glory should we, as New Testament Sons who have living in us the revealed Torah (Jesus) be seeing?

Moses stands as a witness in our day to challenge us into a greater glory, a higher level of the manifest presence of God, on Earth as it is in Heaven. We are measured in our New Covenant Sonship by the life of Moses and the glory which Paul describes as a fading glory should challenge us to see that our little religious games are not demonstrating the glory of YHVH.

 The aim of this little article is not to condemn, but to challenge us to step into the fullness of the new Covenant glory. The bible says that ALL the hidden treasures of wisdom and Knowledge are found in Christ; It also says that ALL the fullness of the Godhead is pleased to dwell in Christ. That means that there is no limit to the glory that can and will manifest when we step into a true New Covenant glory.

When Paul entered Ephesus, the glory that he carried caused the whole city to erupt in a riot that went on for five hours, no one knew why they were erupting it was just the effect of a new testament glory manifesting. It was Paul who challenged us to enter this greater glory, this glory greater than the fading glory of Moses.

If we are to see a Billion soul harvest; then we are going to need a new Covenant manifestation of greater glory to see the powers of an old way and an old system yield. When we see a level of glory that Moses saw manifest we will see the people sit up and take notice. When we see a New Testament manifestation of glory we will see the nations sit up and take notice and we will be on the way to a billion soul harvest.

I will end with the words of Paul (2 Corinthians 3:16-17) When ever someone turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. For the Lord is the Spirit and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. So all of us who have had the veil removed can SEE and REFLECT the glory of the Lord. And the Lord who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like HIM as we are changed into His glorious image.
