Nature of the Cloud

2 Chronicles 5:11-14

The cloud of God’s glory reveals something about His nature. One of the definitions for glory (Chabod) here is “copiousness”.  I just love that word! It’s not only fun to say, but it is fun to experience when you are in His presence! The New American Standard Hebrew-Aramaic Dictionary describes the Hebrew word for cloud here, as a cloud that covers the sky; a nimbus or thunder cloud.

This is not a thin wispy, wimpy cloud. This isn’t an innocuous fluffy cloud that baby angels float around while playing stringed instruments. This is a large, thick cloud. This is a cloud that is so dense it cannot contain itself. This is a cloud that is ready to burst with its own nature. This is a cloud that not only has the potential to produce precipitation, but will most assuredly produce rain!

This is like a thunder cloud. In the midst of this cloud you just might experience a micro-burst of His presence! This is a cloud that may produce a sound that is reminiscent of the sound of God walking in the garden of Eden in the cool of the day!

This cloud once fell upon a structure. Now this cloud indwells the spirit of those whom Jesus calls by name. This cloud can blow up in your life today! A rain producing, thunder booming, river flowing cloud of His presence contained only within the confines of your faith! Worship with the sound He’s given you and cultivate the cloud that He has put in you!

We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He...

I really hesitate to do a lot of writing on the prophetic because there are many others that have written on the subject with great depth, wisdom and understanding. As pastor of The Bridge Metrowest, coming on the heels of previous pastors here like John Paul Jackson and John E. Thomas, I would much rather refer you to their material. But Holy Spirit reminds me that doing that alone may just...

John 1:1–51 (ESV)

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  2 He was in the beginning with God.  3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.  4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.  5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

I love the Word of God....
