The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. [Psalms 19:1 KJV]
We read of it first in Exodus as He accompanied the Children of Israel out of Egypt and they worshipped in the Tabernacle.
And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the LORD ,,, And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud. [Exodus 16:7a, 10 KJV]
Again, as the Ark of the Covenant entered the temple Solomon built, the glory of God was displayed.
And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD, So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD. Then spake Solomon, The LORD said that he would dwell in the thick darkness. [1 Kings 8:10-12 KJV]
The destruction of this temple led to a rebuilding Ezra describes. Under Herod the temple was restored to beauty. Many believe prophecy tells us there will be a third temple, one that will see the abomination of desolation by the anti-Christ spoken of in the Bible.
Neither tabernacles nor temples are required for the glory of the Lord to appear.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. [Luke 2:9 KJV]
When there is a temple to Him, the glory of the Lord will shine from it, and we can be that temple.
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? [1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV]
Always looking forward to the day when there shall be no temple, no sun, no moon, for the glory of God replaces all.
And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. [Revelation 21:22-23 KJV]
Let us seek His glory now and return it to Him multiplied, that all men may glorify God.
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. [Philippians 2:11 KJV]
Let us believe, as Christ said to Martha:
Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? [John 11:40 KJV]
To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. [Jude 1:25 KJV]
