It is used as an adjective 200 times to describe YHVH. Although, the idea of weight or heaviness is not overt in these cases, it certainly helps us understand a bit more of Yah's glory!
Shaking is occurring. It is occurring in my world, privately and corporately in community. The Father is cleaning house, so to speak. He is true to His word to shake all that can be shaken and we are only seeing the beginning. How we/I respond to the shaking will determine how much of Yah's glory manifests.
After a particularly trying week, something was bearing down on me. In former times, I would have automatically assumed or presumed what it was and proceeded according to traditional familiar teaching. Actually, there were a few minutes of considering the possibilities - depression, sadness, fear, demonic interference, disappointment with myself, etc. But when I asked my heavenly Father to show me, He revealed that it was "heaviness". The sensation was exactly that, as if I was being pressed on, not like being crushed, this was coming from inside and outside at the same time. Then I heard: kavod.
I was experiencing Yah's glory. It was manifesting in this physical sensation. It felt at the same time, like I couldn't breathe, but also didn't need to. It was accompanied by a tremendous calm - shalom - another amazing Hebrew word meaning overall well-being in body, mind, and spirit.
What does it all mean? All human beings have kvod - honor - because we are created in the image of Elohim, and He is the essence of kavod. To dishonor another human being is to dishonor Elohim. Sometimes honoring another human being means doing the hard thing. For instance: not ignoring a disrespect to another, or not letting a child get by with lying, not excusing sin to accommodate your comfort level. This has been a hard week. Not only dealing with my own issues but also confronting others (of course, with love and respect). And I have felt His kavod.
Am I special? If that means better than you - absolutely NOT! If it means Yah pays attention to what is going on with me, then YES! The heaviness/weightiness manifesting in/around me is the realization that He is there and I am His and He approves. This is more humbling than you can imagine. There is a certain assurance about the god I serve that empowers me to operate out of His kavod - and to be immersed in His. Let the weight of Your Glory fall...
