House of Glory

“And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place: (for all the priests that were present were sanctified, and did not then wait by course: also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:) It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For He is good; for His mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; 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.” 2 Chronicles 5:11-14 (KJV)

There is nothing more glorious than the glory of the LORD. There are more details given us in the Chronicles of the building of Solomon’s temple than in the Kings, and these details are helpful to us; and to the generations which returned from captivity.

Thinking of the “glory of the LORD” it would be good to remember the events of 1 Samuel 4:11-22. Remember the ark of the covenant represents the person, power and glory of God.

It would also be good to read Matthew 23:37 – 24:1. Jesus is the Person of the glory of God. His name “Immanuel” meaning “God with us”. Also see Hebrews 1:1-3.

If Jesus Christ; the Son of God, God the Son; is not present the glory is gone.

  1. You and I must be on the same wave length in the study of God’s glory. Our pastor has been challenging our congregation to be immersed in His spirit, and exuberant in our manner of abandonment to the Holy Spirit, ushering Him into the sanctuary. Our praise and worship team is outstanding, and they are on a somewhat elevated stage. They utilize one and sometimes two keyboards, several guitars, percussion, and drums. I tell you they rock out beyond belief,and the songs are contemporary and filled with spiritual meaning, majestic praise, and true adoration of our God, Savior, and Holy Spirit. I have recently, since Pastor Rich challenged us to feel God’s power as strongly as possible,that I almost fall down. In summary, it so so powerful that I can’t begin to do it justice, nor do I have the words to describe it. Thank you for this message and for the ability to share with you when our minds are in like mode. Jlehman1945 PS Keep it coming!
