We are moving into Advent. We are coming to Christmas & as always I find myself returning again & again to Isiah for ''Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?''
Two words remain:
Shekinah; God's presence, the dwelling place of God.
There are two places you can read about God's Skekinah described; in Ezekiel chapter one & in the gospels. Ezekiel reads like a Tolkien epic. Fantastic but largely incomprehensible. In the gospels God's shekinah is revealed for us. That is the full message of Christmas. Just two words: God's glory, His presence, His radience, revealed to us ~ & in us.
