Scripture Focus…

(16 )“Now the glory of the LORD rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And on the seventh day He called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud. (17) The sight of the glory of the Lord was like a consuming fire on the top of the mountain in the eyes of the children of Israel.”
(Exodus 24:16–17 NKJV)


The following commentaries to Exodus 24:16–17 and Exodus 25:6 was taken from The Revival Study Bible:

No Fire, No Glory
Exodus 24:16–17

To the Israelites, the glory of the Lord looked like a consuming fire on top of the mountain. When the glory of God is present, people know it. There is no more need to announce the presence of God’s glory than there is need to announce the presence of fire. God’s glory is something tangible. Everyone feels it; everyone sees it; everyone experiences it. In fact, the glory of God is the visible manifestation of God either by a distinct outward form (like the pillar of cloud) or by a supernatural outward demonstration (like the raising of Lazarus from the dead or a miraculous healing). What has become of the glory?

Because our nation has experienced precious little revival in the last two generations, we have “changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man” (Rom 1:23). We have cheapened it, trivialized it, and made it something light—the Hebrew for glory means heavy! We have had plenty of smoke (we can really take it up) but very little fire.

How will we know when the glory appears? How can we see the glory of God? “Now it came to pass, as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud” (Ex 16:10). “Did I not say to you that if you would believe, you would see the glory of God? (John 11:40). These are the words of Jesus! Believe His Word. Then you will see. Show us Your glory, oh, God! (See Ex 33:18) MLB

(6) “Oil for the light and spices for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense.”
(Exodus 25:6 NKJV)

Oil for the Light
Exodus 25:6

Not all oil might be used in the Lord’s service. Only one oil was selected, and that is the best olive oil. Pretended grace from natural goodness, fancied grace from priestly hands, or imaginary grace from outward ceremonies will never serve the true saint of God; he knows that the Lord would not be pleased with rivers of such oil. He goes to the olive press of Gethsemane and draws his supplies from Him who was crushed therein… Under the best of circumstances, you cannot give light for another hour unless fresh oil of grace is given you. Even consecrated lamps could not give light without oil; though they shone in the tabernacle, they needed to be fed. You have no oil well springing up in your human nature, and therefore you must go to them that sell and buy for yourself, or like the foolish virgins, you will have to cry, “May lamp is gone out” (see Matt. 25:1–13).

Our churches are the Savior’s golden candelabra, and if we are to be lights in this dark world, we must have much holy oil. Let us pray for ourselves, our ministers, and our churches, that we may never lack oil for the light. Truth, holiness, joy, knowledge, love, these are all beams of the sacred light, but we cannot give them forth unless in private we receive oil from God the Holy Spirit.
