Mine eye have seen the GLORY

Re: Verse reading–Ezekiel 10:18-19; 11:22-23; 40:1-2; 43:1-9 (day six) 
“And I saw the GLORY of the God of Israel coming from the east.  His voice was the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his GLORY.”  (43:2)  “Mine eyes have seen the GLORY of the coming of the Lord.”Julia Ward Howe.  Whether civil war song or prophet’s vision, the hope is the same.  Christ will come to His people with great GLORY.  The Hebrew word for GLORY is kabod.  It came from the word kabed which meant “heavy”.  Heavy as compared to plastic or disposable.  A contrast to a world that is not real, substantial and eternal.  Ultimately, His GLORIOUS coming is the only hope for this sin-sick, self-spent world.  God, Himself, will be the light and the justice. “For the Son of Man is going to come in the GLORY of His Father with His angels, and will repay every man according to his deeds.”  (Matthew 16:27)  GLORY? GLORY. Hallelujah!
