There comes a time when the Son of Man is revealed to mankind. The most frequent title that Jesus used to describe himself in the gospels was the Son of Man.
Ezekiel (son of man) prophesied about the glory that would spread over the earth when the Lord’s presence filled the temple. It would come with the sound of many waters.
In the temple of your body, has the Lord come to take residence? He is not limited to a structural building (temple).
He indwells us with His Holy Spirit upon salvation. The glory of His presence may even come on us with the sound of many waters.
Many waters cannot quench love. In the time of Noah, God made a covenant/promise that He would not wipe out mankind again with a flood.
The ark represents the protection of Jesus (Son of God and prophetic Son of Man) who is rescuing us from the impending judgment against evil (here comes the water). Evil is anything that has defiled God’s rightful place. It will come to light in the brightness of His glory. Jesus ushers in the light.
Thank you,Father God, for revealing to us your Son and our Savior. Thanks for your love that stands in the face of the floods, threatening to overcome. -Teresa #lookeastofEden #johnsteinbeck
Ezekiel 43:1-9 (ESV)
The Glory of the Lord Fills the Temple
43 Then he led me to the gate, the gate facing east. 2 And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the east. And the sound of his coming was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with his glory. 3 And the vision I saw was just like the vision that I had seen when he[h] came to destroy the city, and just like the vision that I had seen by the Chebar canal. And I fell on my face. 4 As the glory of the Lord entered the temple by the gate facing east, 5 the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the temple.
6 While the man was standing beside me, I heard one speaking to me out of the temple, 7 and he said to me, “Son of man, this is the place of my throne and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the people of Israel forever. And the house of Israel shall no more defile my holy name, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoring and by the dead bodies[i] of their kings at their high places,[j] 8 by setting their threshold by my threshold and their doorposts beside my doorposts, with only a wall between me and them. They have defiled my holy name by their abominations that they have committed, so I have consumed them in my anger. 9 Now let them put away their whoring and the dead bodies of their kings far from me, and I will dwell in their midst forever.
