The blotting out of sins is like the sudden” disappearance of threatening clouds from the sky (Isa. 44:22). “Cloud, the pillar of, was the glory-cloud which indicated God’s presence leading the ransomed people through the wilderness (Ex. “13:22; 33:9, 10). This pillar preceded the people as they” “marched, resting on the ark (Ex. 13:21; 40:36). By night it” became a pillar of fire (Num. 9:17-23).
