Exodus 33:7-11 (NCV)
   Moses used to take a tent and set it up a long way outside the camp; he called it the “Meeting Tent.”  Anyone who wanted to ask the Lord about something would go to the Meeting Tent outside the camp.  Whenever Moses went out to the Tent, all the people would rise and stand at the entrances of their tents, watching him until he entered the Meeting Tent.  When Moses went into the Tent, the pillar of cloud would always come down and stay at the entrance of the Tent while the Lord spoke with Moses.  Whenever the people saw the pillar of cloud at the entrance of the Tent, they stood and worshipped, each person at the entrance of his own tent.
   The Lord spoke to Moses face to face as a man speaks with his friend. 
   Then Moses would return to the camp, but Moses’ young helper, Joshua son of Nun, did not leavve the Tent.


Oh to have seen the pillar of cloud come to that Meeting Tent, and to be able to stand and worship Almighty God in His very presence – visible presence!  I wonder at the sound of it.  It must have been just a very small sample of what true worship will be like in Heaven.
Imagine the pillar of cloud at the door to church this morning (for He is present there)…enter into the presence of God and worship Him!
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!!
