“Then he said, “Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.”
Moses was a man who encountered God in a special way. He was called up a mountain to meet with God for an uniqus purpose.
Isaiah, the disciples at the Transfiguration, Paul and John all had face-to-face meetings with the Lord. From these special times came their power for faith and ministry.
The New Testament believer has access to God’s presence unknown to most believers previously.

Sometimes I wonder about this. Perhaps our pews need seatbelts and our ushers need to hand out life jackets. Maybe a fire extinguisher and a pastor trained in CPR would be wise. Who knows what will happen if God decides to really show up?
