Lord's Shekinah Glory (Revelation 7.15)

"Therefore, 'they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence [or "spread his tent over them."]'" (Revelation 7.15)✞

God's Blessed Ones

shekinahWe read Jacob's words at Bethel in Genesis 28.16b, "Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it." The Rabbis changed that to, "The "Lord shekinah" is in this place." Habakkuk 2.20 says, "The Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him." but later Jews said, "God was pleased to cause his "Lord's shekinah" to dwell in the temple." In Isaiah 6.5 we read, "'Woe to me!' I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.'" Later the Jews altered it to, "Mine eyes have seen the Lord's shekinah glory of the King of the world."

Lord in This Place

The Lord's Shekinah gloryThe real point of this passage is that God's blessed ones would live and serve in the very presence of God's glory, the "Lord's shekinah." He or she who faithfully works and witnesses for the Lord Jesus on earth has the Lord's glory upon his or her person and work.
