In the Cloud for the Lord’s Presence

The Spirit will bring us up to a high mountain to see and enter New Jerusalem (Rev. 21:9-10). On this mountain, we will be in a cloud which cuts off our seeing of everything else. Moses; Peter, James, and John; and Saul all had such “cloud” experiences.

New JerusalemIn these experiences the “cloud” cuts off our view of everything, but that is not the goal. The goal of the cloud is to separate us from everything into the Lord’s presence that we may focus all our attention on Him.

Exodus 24:15–25:1 say, “Moses went up to the top of the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. And the glory of Jehovah settled on Mount Sinai….And Moses entered into the midst of the cloud…and was on the mountain forty days and forty nights….Then Jehovah spoke to Moses.” Moses was in the cloud to behold the glory of the Lord and to hear His speaking.

On the mountain in Matthew 17, while Peter was speaking, “behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is My Son, the Beloved, in whom I have found My delight. Hear Him!” The cloud brought God’s voice to turn Peter from everything else to Jesus Christ.

In Acts 9:11-12, while Saul was blind, he was praying and saw a vision. This indicates that he was in fellowship with the Lord. And Acts 26:16 records that the Lord spoke to Saul during his blindness about “the things in which you have seen Me and of the things in which I will appear to you.” Hence his blindness began a life of seeing the Lord and the things of the Lord.

Lord Jesus, turn us from darkness to light. Grant us a “cloud” experience that we may clearly hear Your voice, see You, and see the glory of New Jerusalem.
