Ezekiel 10:4, 18 ESV
And the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub to the threshold of the house, and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the Lord.
Then the glory of the Lord went out from the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubim.
In this chapter Ezekiel records another vision similar to what he saw in chapter 1. It was there described as "the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord." Here it is described as Cherubim above which is a throne and the Glory of the Lord.
The Glory of the Lord fills the court of the temple much as it did when the temple was first dedicated by Solomon. The difference is that at the dedication the cloud was an indication that the presence of God was coming to the temple. Here God is preparing to leave the temple. The Glory of the Lord lifts from the threshold of the temple, rests above the Cherubim and will leave the city. God is no longer in the house.
Here is the significant thing, only Ezekiel sees it. The elders worshipping abominations in secret do not see the Glory of the Lord leave the temple. The men worshipping the sun with their backs to the temple do not see the Glory of the Lord depart. Sin has a way of doing that. It blinds us to the truth. It callouses us to what God is doing. It deafens us to the voice of the Lord.
One person can see beauty around them and see God in it. Another person just sees rocks and trees. Sin blinds us to the truth. One person sees pain and cries out to God. Another person sees pain and curses God. Sin callouses us to what God is doing. One person reads the bible and finds soothing for their soul. Another person reads it and finds nothing. Sin deafens us to the voice of God.
Father thank you that you have promised never to forsake me. May I listen well, see clearly and be sensitive to what you are doing. May I keep in step with your Spirit and your Word.
