A Thought For Your Christian Journey:

 

Glory In The Temple

1 Kings 8:10-11 10 And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD, 11 So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD.

King Solomon has spared no expense in building the first temple dedicated to the Lord God Almighty.  The Bible records that the floors within the Temple were covered in gold.  When the construction of the temple was completed the priests carefully placed all of the holy things with in the temple, cleansed it and dedicated it to God.

 Our text records that as the priests left the holy place, after dedicating it, that a cloud filled the house of the Lord, indicating the pleasure and presence of the Jehovah God. This cloud was so majestic that the priests could not stand to minister for the overwhelming glory of God that filled that place.  What an incredible sight and experience this must have been.  This must have been reminiscent of the Shekinah Glory that rest upon the Tabernacle in the wilderness.

 But do you know that the presence of God manifested upon the physical temple of Solomon ought to be the continuous reality of born again believers today.  The Bible states,

 2 Corinthians 6:16-18 16 . . .  for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ you have become the living temple of Almighty God.  All of the overwhelming glory of God that filled Solomon’s Temple that day lives within you.  But what does it take for God’s glory to be manifested in you?  Nothing less than it took for Solomon’s Temple many years ago.  A sincere heart, purified and prepared for the Lord of Hosts to abide in.

 Is the manifested glory of our holy Lord God Almighty being manifested in and through the temple of your life?
