Let us approach His Glory !!!


The presence of God, as you know, in the temple and the tabernacle was known by the shining of the bright light called the Shekinah between the wings of the cherubim over the ark of the covenant.

 We often forget that the presence of God in the most holy place was a matter of faith to all but the high priest.

 Once in the year the high priest went within the awful veil, but we do not know that even he ever dared to look upon the blaze of splendor. 

God dwelleth in light that no man may approach unto. 
The smoke of the incense from the priest’s censer was needed partly to veil the exceeding glory of the divine presence, lest even those chosen eyes should suffer 
blindness.

 No one else went into the hallowed shrine, and only he once in the year. 
That symbolical pavilion of Jehovah is not for a moment to be compared with our Lord Jesus, who is the true dwelling-place of the Godhead, for “in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.”

 What a masterly sentence that is! None but the Holy Ghost could surely have compacted words into such a sentence, — 
“In him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.” 
“God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself.”

The manifestation of the Godhead in Christ is not unapproachable, for we may freely come to Jesus: a voice out of the excellent glory bids us come boldly unto the throne of the heavenly grace. 

We cannot come too often, nor be too long in our approaches unto Jesus, the true mercy-seat. The atonement has been offered, and the veil of the temple, that is to say, the flesh of Christ, has been rent, and now we may approach the Godhead in Christ Jesus without trembling.

 Verily, as I think of God, incarnate God in Jesus Christ, and dwelling among the sons of men, I feel how true it is, “In this place is one greater than the temple.” 



From a sermon by Charles Haddon Spurgeon entitled "One Greater Than The Temple," delivered January 23, 1876.
