Most people have truly heard the church building on the book referred to as “the house of God.” Have you ever heard the word “Ichabod”? Other than the first call of the schoolmaster character in Washington Irving’s “Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” – the phrase “Ichabod” became at the start cited in Scripture. “Then she named the kid Ichabod, saying, “The glory has departed from Israel! “due to the fact the ark of God was captured” (1Sam. 4:21). The original that means of Ichabod is that this: “the respect has departed.”
Logic tells us that the word “has departed” denotes certainly that there was glory, and now there isn’t. The term originated about what many refer to as “the Shekinah (SHE’KEE’NA) glory,” which is the manifestation of the distinction of God within the temple at Jerusalem – the place wherein God resided. This “Shekinah” changed into displayed in numerous Scripture methods inclusive of the burning bush, the brilliant light when the angels introduced the birth of Christ to the shepherds, etc.
The Shekinah become only present while the Ark of the Covenant turned into in its proper place, inside the Holy of Holies. Historically, on every occasion, the Ark became NOT inside the temple; the temple was stated to be “Ichabod.” The actual substance and that means of the temple turned into missing. It changed into simply an empty habitation at that factor because the essence – the honor of God – turned into a long past.
There are many references to the “glory of God” at some point in Scripture. It is the direct reminder of God’s strength and interaction with His people. The word “glory” is often misunderstood. Though maximum might agree that the phrase implies praise, honor, and reputation, an entire definition consists of the words splendor, class, and radiance. Now, apply that definition to any verse regarding “the distinction of God” and adjust its meaning effectively.
Today, on this Age of Grace, the honor of God appears through the lives of these truly serving Him. Notice: thru the LIVES – NOT the homes. Our lives are meant to form the visible manifestation of God’s splendor, elegance, and radiance. Until we renew our minds to this truth, it ain’t happenin’. When it does, thru the ministry of a relative few, we see them as being “more holy” or “greater spiritual” than the relaxation people, as if they set the standard to which the relaxation people can aspire. That’s unlucky for, if we are to compare ourselves with anyone, that man or woman must be Jesus. He by myself is our fashionable.
The Scripture refers to us, the followers of Jesus, as “dwelling sacrifices.” This is commonly known as an oxymoron (a Los Angeles “Jumbo Shrimp,” “Found Missing,” “Microsoft Works”) for sacrifice is useless and, therefore, cannot probably be residing. Notice, but, that the word isn’t “tithing sacrifices,” “preaching sacrifices,” or another form of sacrifices. No, the time period is LIVING sacrifices, denoting existence, day to day, second to a second sacrificial dwelling. In different words, doing the whole thing as unto the Lord God.
