Ezekiel 10:18-19 (JDV)

Ezekiel 10:18 Then the impressive appearance of Yahveh moved away from the threshold of the house and stopped above the cherubs.
Ezekiel 10:19 The cherubs lifted their wings and rose up from the land right before my eyes; the wheels were beside them as they went. The impressive appearance of the God of Israel was above them, and it stopped at the entrance to the eastern gate of Yahveh’s house.

not his

Matthew Poole commented on this text: “The Jews dreamed that God could not depart from his temple; indeed, whilst it was his, and used as his, he did not, nor would he depart, but he will abandon it when profaned, and thereby made not his.”

Our own lives belong to the LORD, but he will depart from them if we insist on using them for self or in service to Satan. It’s our choice.

LORD, give us the wisdom to use our temples for your holy presence.
