God came up with a plan to come down to Moses, because there was no plan to go up to Him. Jesus came so we can be immersed in the rock, so that the glory of God not only be with us, but also NOW be IN us. The same glory that was going to kill Moses – NOW can live in YOU.
22 So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. 23 Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.” Exodus 33:22-23 NKJV
