Jesus came out from the temple and was going away when His disciples came up to point out the temple buildings to Him.
And while some were talking about the temple, that it was adorned with beautiful stones and votive gifts, He said,
They transformed the beauty of His ornaments into pride, and
they made the images of their abominations and their detestable things with it; therefore I will make it an abhorrent thing to them.
And He said to me, “Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great
abominations which the house of Israel are committing here, so that I would be far from My sanctuary? But yet you will see still greater abominations.”
glory of the Lord went up from the cherub to the threshold of the temple, and the temple was filled with the cloud and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the Lord.
Then the cherubim
lifted up their wings with the wheels beside them, and the glory of the God of Israel hovered over them.
Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; and the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, He is coming,” says the Lord of hosts.
