God Personally Showed Up
2 Chronicles 5:13-14 (KJB) 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; 14 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.
God’s glory divinely filled the temple. This filling was supernatural in nature. Not only is God present but He is met with a great celebration or fanfare including music and praise. This event was so spectacular that the priests could not conduct their normal service. Every eye was turned to witness the great presence of the Lord for His presence brilliantly overtook the temple.
Anytime that the presence of God is recorded in the Bible it is found in a great cloud. This cloud fills the temple each time God was present there in ancient biblical times. This cloud was used as a “spiritual GPS” of sorts to divinely direct the pathway of the Israelites after some issues and downtime they continued on in their journey to the promised land only as God divinely lead their way with His cloud.
God’s presence is something that a man cannot even understand or imagine from this side of heaven. In biblical times it was always accompanied by a great cloud which fills the entire temple or area and was quite overwhelming. Certainly, His presence will be quite spectacular to see when a regenerate man reaches eternity.
