|The Glory of God is All Through the Bible|
God’s breath was evident in spoken words during the creation, and in the wind as it blew over the earth. And when God created Adam in Genesis 2:7 “- - He breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.”

Old Testament: Experiencing the Glory of God and what often happened.
Balaam was acting in disobedience and God was about to slay him, but his donkey saw the angel and stopped. Balaam struck his animal and was surprised when the donkey spoke to him. Numbers 22:31 Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the Angel of the Lord with His drawn sword in His hand; and he bowed his head and fell flat on his face.”
The Holy Spirit caused prostrate ministers to fall down and also to stand up.2 Chronicles 5:14 (KJV) So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.
Saul who later became Paul saw a great light and the glory of God caused him to fall on the ground. (Acts 9:4-8) Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting
John records his vision of Jesus in the book of Revelation 1:16-18 :”His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen.
When the presence of God is so real and thick, there are often demonstrations that many are quick to criticize. We must be careful with our judgment; NOT to GRIEVE the HOLY SPIRIT. Paul says in 1 Thessalonians 5:19 QUENCE NOT the Holy Spirit.
SO WHAT TO DO IF - - -You are crying out to God for more of Jesus and you find yourself falling to the floor in His presence? - -
Just do this: Rest and don’t be quick to get up. Ask Jesus what He desires to tell you. Listen and remember what He is saying. He may point out some things in your life that need changing. Be quick to repent and obey.
After awhile, get up and be sure to walk uprightly as you continue to abide in His presence. !!
