The Family Altar
148 Now the natural veil. God, the Word, veiled in human flesh. What was it? God was veiled in Moses. God was in Moses, veiled, and the Presence of God was in him. He was so perfect with that Word in him like that, till he had to veil his face. And it was a vindicated prophet that unfolded the Word and told them, “Thou shalt not! Thou shall! And thou shall not!” See?
149 To give His Word to that generation, He veiled Himself in a human being, or the Word would have blinded even the called-out. See? Even the people that was out there, they could not stand to see that. In—in Exodus we find that, they said, “Let Moses speak, not God.” See why the Pillar of Fire don’t appear too much? See?
150 God said, “I—I—I’ll do that. I’ll raise them up a Prophet.” Amen! “I’ll raise them up one.” And He came just exactly. “I’ll raise, and He’ll have, be the Word.”
151 He said, “If they want to see what the Word is…” Said, “Now, Moses, I appeared to you yonder, the burning bush.” Said, “I’m going to come down and set that mountain afire.” Said, “They’ll see that you’ve told the truth. I’ll appear here in the—in the—the same burning way. I’ll appear here and prove to the people, I’ll vindicate your ministry.” That’s what He told Moses here, so many words.
152 Notice, He said, “Now I’m going to—I’m going to glorify you before the people.” Said, “Now, you told them that I met you out there in a burning bush; now I’m going to come down, same Fire, and I’m going to let the people see that you never lied about It.” You can scientifically prove It, even, if you want to. See? “I’m going to come right down and let them know.”
153 And when He begin to thunder, when Jehovah started thundering, the people said, “No! No! No! Don’t let Jehovah speak; we’ll—we’ll die.”
154 See, He had to be veiled, so God veiled Himself in Moses and give Moses the Word. And Moses come down and spoke the Word of the Lord, in a veil over his face. That right? Jehovah veiled in a form of a prophet, ’cause it would’ve absolutely…And God said He wouldn’t speak to them anymore like that. He would only speak to them by a prophet. That’s the only way He would ever speak from then on. That’s the only way He’s ever spoke. That’s right. Never any other way. He don’t lie.
