                                                            The Shekinah Glory of God
 
 Actually, it’s Hebrew.Shekinah is the Hebrew word that represents the “light of the glory of God”. You won’t find this word in the Bible, but it’s derived from a word that means “that which dwells within”. A Rabbi reading the Torah (the Old Testament) would coin this word to describe God’s radiance and presence in the cloud by day and the fire by night in the book of Exodus. Exodus 13:21-22 This Shekinah fire provided the Israelites warmth at night, while the Shekinah cloud kept them cool in the hot desert. The Israelites were instructed as a nation to follow God’s directions and camp or pull up stakes as the cloud moved out or hovered in one place. Exodus 40:36-38 Whenever Moses was in God’s presence, he returned with his face so radiant that the people feared him. Exodus 34:29-31

This Shekinah glory indwelled the Tabernacle, Exodus 40:34-35 and again when Solomon dedicated

the Temple. 2 Chronicles 7:1-3 In the Old Testament, the Shekinah glory was last seen by

Ezekiel hovering over Jerusalem and finally leaving the city. Ezekiel 1:27-28

This glory is revealed again when Jesus Christ—perfect God and perfect man—became flesh and

made his dwelling among us, “…and we saw His glory as the only begotten son that came from

the Father.” John 1:1,14 This is the reason he was called Immanuel, which means “God with us.”

Matthew 1:22-23 Isaiah 7:14 Because Jesus is God, His glory is the exact representation of

God’s being Hebrews 1:3 On the Day of Pentecost, when the church was born, Acts 2:1-21 God’s

presence that had been with them, would come to personally indwell each believer in the person

of the Holy Spirit. 1Corinthians 6:19-20 Today God’s universal body of believers is referred

to as the Temple—with the Shekinah glory residing in each Christian. 1Corinthians 3:16-17

2Corinthians 6:16

During the catastraphies to come that are recorded in the book of Revelation, the Temple of

God continues to be filled with His glory and power. Revelation 4:5 Revelation 15:8 In the

aftermath of this destruction of all evil, Jesus declares, “I am making everything new!”

Revelation 21:5 No longer will believers see God’s glory confined to a temple made of hands,

or of flesh—but the Trinity itself will be the temple Revelation 21:22-23 and the nations will

be forever illuminated by the Shekinah glory.

 
“The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.” •
