The train of His robe fills the temple

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. – Isaiah 6:1 KJV


I never understood the meaning behind “the train of His robe fills the temple” (See Isaiah 6.1 ). So I did some research and found that in ancient times when a king had won a great victory and defeated an enemy, the king would walk through the battle ground and take for his men the spoils. But the greatest recognition for the king that he had been victorious was signified when he would have a piece of the defeated king’s robe cut off and then sewn onto the bottom or the train of his own robe. For a king in Old Testament times, the length of his robe (or the train) would therefore be a sign or an indication of his greatness i.e. the longer his train, the move victories he had won and the more kings he had defeated.
Let he who is spiritual discern the meaning behind it (Knowing that today his church is the temple, and how victorious one would have to be to have a train long enough to fill a temple). There is so much more in these few words though, I recommend that you spend some time praying and meditating about it. I see the Lord high and lifted up myself, and His train flowing victoriously in me saying “this is My land”. This also brought Exodus 17:15 to mind and the usage of “Jehovah Nissi”, which means “The Lord is my Banner”:

And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi: For he said, Because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation – Exodus 17:15-16 KJV

Every time I meditate on this I get a revelation from the Lord of Him standing in the temple (a representation of me, or the Bride/Church in general) and it’s similar to the Superman image above (which I looked forever to find by the way), but much much more glorious! If you have ever seen those crazy Japanese anime images where they have these guys with insanely long capes, it’s kind of like that, the whole thing is flowing and filling the temple.

I have more to add on this later, but the Lord has withheld my hand from writing the remainder of this post for now. I have much more to share, I will refresh the post when I complete it.

He is King of Kings and Lord of lords, praise His name!
