Revelation of God

by Prophet Dr. David Owuor


"Then I looked, and behold, a whirlwind was coming out of the north, a great cloud with raging fire engulfing itself; and brightness was all around it and radiating out of its midst like the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire."
(Ezekiel 1:4)
 
WHY THE GODHEAD CHOOSES TO REVEAL HIMSELF TO MANKIND
 
FEAR OF GOD
 
WHEN GOD THE FATHER heard about the atrocities that were being committed by the citizens of Egypt against HIS bonafide blessed people Israel, it truly struck HIS heart with the greatest of pain and  brought a serious hurt unto HIM. It is because of that severe agony which GOD THE FATHER HIMSELF felt towards HIS people Israel that caused HIM to put in place a formidable set of modalities to deliver them from that harsh Egyptian slavery and oppression. Owing to the gravity of that cruel repression that even entailed the killing of the male child, GOD decided to come down as the GODHEAD and deliver them HIMSELF.
 
However, in that liberation of Israel, so much was concealed about the intended deliverance of the CHURCH from the cruel claws of the adversary. As the blood of the Lamb splattered and splashed around the compounds of the Israelites, and sheltered their homes from the fearsome visitation of the GODHEAD HIMSELF, so was the BLOOD of Jesus also intended to SANCTUARY the souls of men, that they may one day be able to stand before the GODHEAD HIMSELF.
 
"36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man." (Luke 21:36)
 
Rarely does the GODHEAD visit mankind. However, on every occasion when HE has chosen to do so, such a visitation has often brought with it a great perplexity and distress among HIS people. This has become one of the main reasons for which the GODHEAD always once in a while chooses to visit HIS complacent people by HIMSELF as an act of great awakening.
 
Whenever the GODHEAD HIMSELF decides to descend upon the earth in the revered Cloud of HIS GLORY, it often results into a widespread FEAR OF GOD among the people, owing to the magnitude of HIS appearance in the form of thick CLOUD, earthquake, trumpet blasts and flames. This is what often compels HIS people to go into a large scale serious REPENTANCE for the fear of wrath. Thus, many times the GODHEAD will visit HIS people by HIMSELF in order to restore this reverent FEAR OF GOD among HIS elect and bring forth an extensive purging of decay, immorality, corruption, and all manner of sin. In this way, the GODHEAD HIMSELF initiates forth a massive REPENTANCE REVIVAL in order to awaken HIS people and restore them to HIMSELF. Such was the case with Israel at the hour of her greatest rebellion, when THE GODHEAD HIMSELF decided to visit her in order to restore her to HIMSELF, in that wilderness encounter.
 
"16 On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled. 17 Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. 18 Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the LORD descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain trembled violently. 19 As the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him. 20 The LORD descended to the top of Mount Sinai and called Moses to the top of the mountain. So Moses went up 21 and the LORD said to him, “Go down and warn the people so they do not force their way through to see the LORD and many of them perish. 22 Even the priests, who approach the Lord, must consecrate themselves, or the LORD will break out against them.” 23 Moses said to the Lord, “The people cannot come up Mount Sinai, because you yourself warned us, ‘Put limits around the mountain and set it apart as holy.’” 24 The LORD replied, “Go down and bring Aaron up with you. But the priests and the people must not force their way through to come up to the Lord, or he will break out against them.”
(Ex 19:16-24).
