04/15/2019: SHEKINAH GLORY

What is the ìShekinah Glory?î The term Shekinah is not found in scripture but after much searching I came across as good as a definition as I could find. Shekinah =†he caused to dwell. We read in the Exodus that God revealed Himself in a CLOUD BY DAY, AND A FIRE BY NIGHT.
Now, when we speak of a cloud, in the Bible we find cloud mentioned many times and one of the words that describe a cloud is the word ìananî which means: ìcloud; fog; storm cloud; smoke.î Anan is used especially of the ìcloud of massî that evidenced the special presence of God. (1 Kings 8:10-11)
† 1 Kings 8:10 And it came about when the priests came From 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 filled the house of the Lord.
† For those of you who have trouble standing during church services picture being in the place where the Shekinah Glory sets down. To be in that moment is life changing to say the least. It is then and only then that you can sense the Presence of the Lord in a mighty way. I speak from having experienced His presence in the glory cloud,, not just once but twice.
† EXODUS 13:21 And the Lord was going before them in a pillar of cloud By day to lead them on the way, and in a pillar of fire By night to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night.
† EXODUS 20:21 So the people stood at a distance, while Moses approached the thick cloud where God was.
† Now, we have seen in the Old Testament where God was in the cloud and this is what we attest to as the Shekinah Glory, so, with this in mind letís look at the New Testament and what it says there about the cloud and Godís presence and the significance of the cloud.
† MARK 9:7 Then a cloud formed, overshadowing them, And a voice came out of the cloud, ìThis is My beloved Son, listen to Him.î
† MARK 13:26 And then they will see the SON OF MAN COMING IN CLOUDS with great power and glory.
† ACTS 1:9 And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking On, and a cloud received Him out of Their sight.
† PRAY THIS PRAYER Lord, I pray that one day You might show Your Shekinah Glory in the midst of my life. I Pray that I might draw nearer to You that I might know You more intimately. Grant You Favor to me in this one thing.
I Pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ AMEN!
