Behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east; and his voice was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shined with his glory. Bible

“the glory of the God of Israel came.” Ezekiel had been being led around his vision of the future Millennial Temple by a supernatural being, most likely an angel (Ezek. 40:3). Now God Himself returns and takes over and leads Ezekiel just as He had in earlier chapters (cp. Ezek. 8:2). God is surrounded by His glory. He and His glory had left the Temple and Jerusalem due to the sin of the people and gone east (Ezek. 9:3; 10:4, 18; 11:23), now in this vision of the future Millennial Temple, God returns from the east.
