I read these scriptures today. Who ever said Chronicles was boring? I don’t think the glory of the Lord filling the house of God is boring!!! There’s nuggets in there…just get in tune with the author.
II CHRONICLES 5:13 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.
Truly God was fullfilling what the psalmist spoke of in Psalms 22 “but thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” I believe God comes near when your heart is truly praising God. Another event also seemed to bring the presence of the Lord near, prayer.
II CHRONICLES 7:1 ¶ Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house.
2 And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD’S house.
Powerful isn’t it?
