Answer: The Shechinah glory is the visible manifestation of the presence of God, and it might be either the Father, the Son, or the Spirit or could also be the whole Triune God, depending on the context. Ezekiel 43 does not specify which member of the Godhead it is or whether it is all three. However, based upon other ways the Shechinah manifested itself in connection with the holy of holies of the Tabernacle and the Temple, it may indicate that Ezekiel 43 speaks about the visible manifestation of the Holy Spirit returning to Israel during the messianic kingdom.
