Exodus 33:1-3

Then the LORD said to Moses, "Leave this place, you and the people you brought up out of Egypt, and go up to the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, saying, 'I will give it to your descendants.' I will send an angel before you and drive out the Canaanites, Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. Go up to the land flowing with milk and honey. But I will not go with you, because you are a stiff-necked people and I might destroy you on the way."

The LORD, God, the Almighty recognizes the awe-fulness of His holiness and His love for His people demands that He protect them from the destructive consequences of that holiness. Sin cannot exist in the presence of the Holy.

He does not change, He is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Heb. 13:8). He is the LORD, God, the Almighty and to be feared; totally, completely, without reservation---feared.

But God is love, (1 John 4:8, 16). In the modern mind, these are conflicting terms. However, think about atomic energy. It is fearsome when misapplied, but of great benefit when properly used.
