"Once I was speaking to an assembly of high school students. I announced that I was the greatest trumpet player in the world. I then took a trumpet and blew two or three of the worst sounding notes you have ever heard. I then pointed out that words are empty if not validated by our lives. Evangelism is the announcement of the good news that in Christ salvation has come into the world. But people have the right to say 'where?' If we cannot point to a living community and lives that show that God's power has indeed invaded history, then our words are empty. Our words interpret our deeds and lives, and our lives and deeds authenticate our words. Surely one sees this in the ministry of Jesus where his life, words and deeds revealed the kingdom. Nietzsche once said: 'They would have to sing better songs for me to learn to have faith in their Redeemer: and his disciples would have to look more redeemed!' That doesn't mean that our words will completely lack power if our lives and deeds betray the gospel. The gospel does have its own power. But it will mean that it will weaken our witness and we will be judged for that." --Dr. Michael Goheen (2013)
Sheehans is a disease as far as I know so I think you mean Shekinah Glory.
The word shekinah does not appear in the Bible, but the concept clearly does. The Jewish rabbis coined this extra-biblical expression, a form of a Hebrew word that literally means "he caused to dwell," signifying that it was a divine visitation of the presence or dwelling of JEHOVAH God on this earth. The Shekinah was first evident when the Israelites set out from Succoth in their escape from Egypt. There it appeared as a cloudy pillar in the day and a fiery pillar by night: “After leaving Succoth they camped at Etham on the edge of the desert. By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people” (Exodus 13:20-22).
The biggest problem we have is that the Scriptures do not tell us. We wouldn't want to assert something with greater authority than the Word actually gives us to assert something. I do not know of any prohibition against equestrian use for Jews except on Shabbat. Keep in mind, though, that a horse, even today, costs as much to care for as does a human being. Consequently, regular use of horses tended to be something predominantly reserved for the wealthy or important people. Even in American history the horse only became ubiquitous because of the unusual distances. Common people could rarely afford keeping them.
The calling of Timothy and Paul was to a life of holiness (Hebrews 3:1). Whereas there were were once sinners and enemies (Ephesians 1:18; 4:1), now purchased (Acts 20:28) they belonged entirely to God, separated from the world.
