When Messiah The KING Of Glory Is Crowned



"Now Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all the heads of the tribes, the chief fathers of the children of Israel, in Jerusalem, that they might bring the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord up from the City of David, which is Zion." 2 Chronicles 5:2 As I read this whole chapter the tears fell unbidden and unstopable, all I could think of was that this is a picture of Jesus when he will be coronated King in Jerusalem. It's such a glorious picture, one's heart cannot help but be stirred to glory in the reading of it. King Solomon had finished building the Temple in Jerusalem, and now it was time to bring the Ark of the Covenant and all the furnishings of the sanctuary into it and dedicate it. He made a great feast and brought all the elders and the chiefs of the tribes of Israel, along with the multitudes of Levites who alone were permitted to touch and carry the holy things. vs 7: "Then the priests brought in the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord to its place, into the inner sanctuary of the Temple, to the Most Holy Place, under the wings of the cherubim." Picture the jubilation as the multitudes and multitudes of priests and singers and all the musicians, all clothed in white, gathered in festive array to sound the praises of God as the Temple was finally being filled and dedicated, all to the sound of trumpets and stringed instruments and cymbals, a joyous sound heard for miles around. Can you imagine the sound of a hundred and twenty trumpets? vs 11-13: "And it came to pass when the priests came out of the Most Holy Place, for all the priests who were present had sanctified themselves, without keeping to their divisions, and the Levites who were the singers, all those of Asaph and Heman and Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, stood at the east end of the altar, clothed in white linen, having cymbals, stringed instruments and harps, and with them one hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets, indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying: 'For he is good, for his mercy endures forever…" And then suddenly ...as they raised their voices and musical instruments loud "AS ONE" ...the glory of God fell upon them so overwhelmingly that the priests were too overcome and couldn't continue. vs 13-14: "...that the house, the Temple of the Lord, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud, for the Glory of the Lord filled the house of God." Saints, this is a picture of the day when Yeshua, the Lord Jesus Christ, will finally come to take his place in the new Temple of God in Jerusalem - to rule and to reign forever. The earth will have been cleansed from all the evil ones and all that will remain will be pure and righteous, forgiven, cleansed, and holy. Imagine the volume of the voices, the musical instruments and joyous shouts as we return WITH HIM, raising up a glorious sound in honor of THE KING, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords whose coronation will be the most glorious event mankind has ever witnessed. It's beyond the imagining. The end of all that was, and the beginning of all that will be! Oh glory to God in the highest, GLORY to his Name, "...for he is good, and his mercy endures forever!" Praise him all peoples, bow before him, give him the glory and honor due his Name. Oh worship the King in the beauty of holiness! Sing praises to his Name! "Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples, give to the Lord glory and strength. Give to the Lord the glory due his Name; bring an offering, and come into his courts. Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before him, all the earth. Say among the nations, 'The Lord reigns;'" Psalm 96:7-10
