For those with the eyes of faith, God’s willingness to leave His temple in Jerusalem was also a positive sign. If the Lord was not limited to Mount Zion and could leave His house there, then He could go with the faithful remnant into exile and protect them. History shows us that this is exactly what God did. He was with Daniel, Ezekiel, Esther, and the other believing exiles when they were in foreign lands. Such is His grace that He never utterly abandons His true children.
