The Shekinah Glory

Exodus 40:34-35 - Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and The LORDs glory filled the tabernacle. Moses was not able to enter into the Tent of Meeting, because the cloud stayed on it, and The glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. This is the same Shekinah glory that appeared in the tabernacle above the mercy seat and between the cherubim. It is certain that this is what Stephen saw when he was being stoned (Acts 7:55-56), and what Paul the apostle saw when he (Saul of Tarsus) was on the road that led to Damascus and saw the glory of Jesus Christ and fell from his horse blinded (Acts 9), and what John the disciple saw on the Isle of Patmos (Revelation 1:16).This same Jesus will be manifested in great glory when he returns again to the earth to set up his kingdom (Matthew 24:30). It is interesting that in the prayer of Jesus he was praying to the father and mentioned the glory I had with you before the world began (John 17:5). It is a true statement that the glory of Christ was veiled in flesh, and just as the Ark of the Covenant in all of its glory was covered with an unbecoming badger skin (Num 4:5), so the glory of Christ was covered with the outward appearance of an average Jewish man. John 1:14 - The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.
