1 Cor 13:12
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.
”in a mirror” – we can only understand God in the context of our own language, our own references. (we can only see or describe God through our own image in the mirror).
2 Cor 3:18
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.
The mirror again, but I believe the glory of the Lord in the mirror is the Messiah we see (the Messiah is the mirror) – we see the glory of God in ourselves since the image of the Messiah melts into our image in the mirror. – The Messiah, who is fully known of God in total union with God, translates the Glory into the human realm by letting us also become fully known of God in total union with God.
Shekhinah, the Glory and Spirit of God, is almost always dependant of a temple or abode. (Check that out if you want). She is the invisible Presence in existence, and cannot be addressed, as the Father can be addressed as a Person. The Presence cannot be described, only lived. But God is One (Shekinah and the Father in total union) and God became One through one human (pair): The Messiah (and his Bride).
We are, through the Messiah invited to this union through the foremost commandment: God is One, and love him with your whole being. Because you are destined to be united with him. Through the Messiah you are totally known by him.
