The Shechinah Glory's Departure

May Explain Why People Are So Confused Today

In the last two years, much has happened that makes zero sense. The world was suddenly shut down for two weeks over what was called a pandemic, but it was actually a big lie. They never intended it to be only two weeks.

Some saw the lie clear as a bell, but most believed the lie being perpetrated 24/7 on the news and in commercials.

Va((ines were rolled out as the answer to the lie. But it too was a big lie. They are not va((ines and turns out they:

1) Change your human genome, which hijacks your God-given immune system, and

2) They have deadly poison in them.

Some people have clearly seen all this, but most believe the lies, separating family, friends and co-workers.

As we’ve said for almost two years, the only way any of this makes any sense is to look at it from a Biblical perspective—that Satan is close to taking over after the Rapture and, via his lies, he's able to murder billions of humans (Rev. 6).

You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44

So looking at the world's craziness from a prophetic Biblical perspective, we know it’s all rooted in Satan’s evil. And we know we’re not up against people, we’re up against what’s influencing people. A verse most Believers know well:

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Eph. 6:12

So viewing all that’s going on from a last-days perspective and understanding the behind-the-scenes evil, what else can we find in the Bible that might shed some light on the weirdness we see today?

Well, there may be some insight in what Ezekiel the prophet wrote some 2600 years ago.

In the upcoming Rapture of Believers, the Holy Spirit departs the earth. Ezekiel records how the Spirit left the earth once before... it’s interesting and probably not what you think!

The Shechinah Glory in the OT

What we call God’s Holy Spirit in the Church Age, the Old Testament refers to as the Shechinah Glory. He is the third part of our Triune God…God the Father and Jesus Christ being the other two parts. These three make up our One God.

The word “Shekinah” is not in the Biblical texts, much like “the Trinity” and “The Rapture” are not in the English Biblical texts.(1) But Shechinah describes a concept—the presence of YEHOVAH.

In the Old Testament, the Shechinah Glory was the visible manifestation of the presence of God. Whenever God shows up physically, pre-Christ, He is usually in the form of the Shechinah Glory. He is specifically referred to as the “Glory of the Lord” or the “Glory of Jehovah.”

The Shechinah Glory shows up in the very first verse of the Bible:

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

We know this because the word “God” in the Hebrew is a plural noun, referring to the Trinity. This would also explain where the light came from on Creation Day One since the sun, a distinctly different light, was not created until Creation Day Four.

Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;” Gen. 1:14a

A few verses later the Trinity is mentioned on Creation Day Six:

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; Gen. 1:26a

The Shechinah Glory continues to show up throughout the Old Testament.

He’s the Smoking Furnace and Flaming Torch in the Abrahamic Covenant in Gen 15:12-28.

He’s the Burning Bush in Ex. 3:1-5.

He’s the Pillar of Cloud and Pillar of Fire leading the Israelites' Exodus out of Egypt in Ex. 13:21-22.

He’s the Pillar of Fire protector of Israel restraining the Egyptian army when the Jews were escaping through the parted waters of the Red Sea. Ex. 14:19-20

He’s the Fire and Smoking Furnace on Mount Sinai when Moses received the 10 Commandments. Ex. 19:16-20

He filled and resided in the Tabernacle as the Glory of Jehovah. Ex. 40:34-38 (Tabernacle actually means “the dwelling place of the Shechinah.”)

He filled and resided in the Holy of Holies in Solomon’s Temple once it was completed. 1Kings 8:1-13

He is the Chariot of Fire when He took up Elijah in a whirlwind to heaven. 2Kings 2:11

>>>Now this is where it gets really interesting, as it may have some application to us today.<<<

The Shechinah Glory eventually departed the earth in order for Jesus to be born and live on earth as a human. But He didn’t depart in one great Rapture-like whoosh—rather, He departed in four stages.

Stage 1

The Shechinah Glory departed the earth in 592 BC. Ezekiel records He departs the Holy of Holies and stops at the door of the Temple.

Then the Glory of the God of Israel went up from the cherub on which it had been, to the threshold of the temple. Ezek. 9:3 

Then the 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. Ezek. 10:4

Stage 2

The Shechinah Glory then departed from the door of the Temple and stops at the Eastern Gate, "Gate Beautiful" of the Temple compound.

Then the Glory of the LORD departed from the threshold of the temple and stood over the cherubim. When the cherubim departed, they lifted their wings and rose up from the earth in my sight with the wheels beside them; and they stood still at the entrance of the east gate of the LORD’S house, and the Glory of the God of Israel hovered over them. Ezek. 10:18-19

Stage 3

Next we see the Shechinah Glory departing from the Eastern Gate, moving over the Mount of Olives.

Then the cherubim lifted up their wings with the wheels beside them, and the Glory of the God of Israel hovered over them. The Glory of the LORD went up from the midst of the city and stood over the mountain which is east of the city [Mount of Olives]. Ezek. 11:22-23

Stage 4

Finally the Shechinah Glory disappears into the clouds until the time of Christ…ultimately returning to indwell Believers beginning at Pentecost in Acts 2.

Now we know that the Shechinah Glory/God’s Holy Spirit is the Restrainer of wholesale evil on this earth. He is holding back Satan from unrestricted evil.

And you know what restrains him [Satan] now, so that in his time he [Satan] will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He [Shechinah Glory/Holy Spirit] who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way [at the Rapture]. 2Th. 2:6-7

And at the Rapture He will depart, taking all us Believers in an almost indescribable event before the 7 years of God’s wrath/judgment on earth. With the Restrainer gone, Satan can do what he does best—lie and murder—unrestrained.

So let’s think about this… since the Shechinah Glory left the earth in stages the last time He departed, maybe He is also leaving in stages today. Hmmm…

If He is in Stage One of His departure, this would explain why we have so many clueless people taking those clot-shots.

And maybe this is why we have all those seemingly brilliant but clueless people promoting the first, second, third and soon, fourth shots (falsely called va((ines).

If, like the Shechinah Glory, the Holy Spirit is also leaving in stages, maybe Satan is being allowed a bit of a foothold prior to his full unrestrained control that he has in the Tribulation. There IS a scriptural precedent as we saw above.

So it could be that the Restrainer might be loosening His grip just a little at a time, similar to the four stages when He left before. Then, at the last stage He’ll finish His exit, taking Believers with Him at the Rapture.

Now this theory is not developed enough to suggest how long this "loosening" might last; it’s just showing a possible scriptural explanation for what’s going on in the world.

I don’t know about you but I’m looking for SOMETHING to explain this “deer in the headlights” response to the va((ine rollout by so many. This info could be the answer.

If so, the obvious “delusional response” that we’re witnessing today may be due to the Restrainer allowing Satan to lie to the world via “mass formation psychosis.”

Washington State Proposes A Bill For Government To Involuntary Detain The Unva((inated

Text of entire bill

Reading the fine print below gives me chills...(emphasis added.)

WAC 246-100-040
Procedures for isolation or quarantine.

"At his or her sole discretion, a local health officer may issue an emergency detention order causing a person or group of persons to be immediately detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine in accordance with subsection (3) of this section, or may petition the superior court ex parte for an order to take the person or group of persons into involuntary detention for purposes of isolation or quarantine in accordance with subsection (4) of this section, provided that he or she:
(a) "Has first made reasonable efforts, which shall be documented, to obtain voluntary compliance with requests for medical examination, testing, treatment, counseling, vaccination, decontamination of persons or animals, isolation, quarantine, and inspection and closure of facilities, or has determined in his or her professional judgment that seeking voluntary compliance would create a risk of serious harm; and
(b) "Has reason to believe that the person or group of persons is, or is suspected to be, infected with, exposed to, or contaminated with a communicable disease or chemical, biological, or radiological agent that could spread to or contaminate others if remedial action is not taken; and
(c) "Has reason to believe that the person or group of persons would pose a serious and imminent risk to the health and safety of others if not detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine."

Pentagon: Fauxi Is To Blame for Covid-19

7-minute Video

DARPA, under the umbrella of the U.S. Department of Defense, confirms they rejected Fauxi's proposal to create mRNA "gain of function" Coronavirus due to the existing moratorium on that kind of research.

But Fauxi did an "end-around" by funding the lab in Wuhun, China—which Fauxi denied under oath in Senate testimony. If this whole Covid conspiracy falls apart, this little weasel is going to prison in a cell next to HRC.

But if the conspiracy doesn't fall apart, Fauxi won't escape God's Judgment Day. Good luck with that...
