2 Chronicles 5* The ark placed in the temple. (1-10) The temple filled withglory. (11-14)1-10 The ark was a type of Christ, and, as such, a token of thepresence of God. That gracious promise, Lo, I am with you alway,even unto the end of the world, does, in effect, bring the arkinto our religious assemblies, if we by faith and prayer pleadthat promise; and this we should be most earnest for. WhenChrist is formed in a soul, the law written in the heart, theark of the covenant settled there, so that it becomes the templeof the Holy Ghost, there is true satisfaction in that soul. 11-14 God took possession of the temple; he filled it with acloud. Thus he signified his acceptance of this temple, to bethe same to him that the tabernacle of Moses was, and assuredhis people that he would be the same in it. Would we have Goddwell in our hearts, we must leave room for him; every thingelse must give way. The Word was made flesh; and when he comesto his temple, like a refiner's fire, who may abide the day ofhis coming? May he prepare us for that day.
