The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart exults, and with my song I thank Him. Psalm 28:7.
Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him, and He will do it. Psalm 37:5.
Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” John 11:40.
And in His temple, everything says, “Glory!” Psalm 29:9.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
If you trust Me, everything will be all right, and more than that, it will be glorious. In My temple, everything says “Glory!” Psalm 29:9. Where I am, the glory is. Heaven and earth are filled with My glory, and indeed, as I live, all the earth will be filled with the glory of the LORD. Numbers 14:21.
For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14. How? Through you. “For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:6. In the darkness at the beginning of My formation of the earth and all that is in it and the universe in which I set it, I spoke, “Light be.” And light was. And I separated the light from the darkness. I do that now with you, for “you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9. And how does Jesus identify you now that He, the Light of the world , has come to you, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16. He is the Light of the world, and no follower of His shall ever walk in darkness but shall have the Light of life. And when you have the Light of life in you, you are a luminary, a light bearer, in the dark world. For in you is the Light of the world Himself, let Him shine in your life. It all starts in your heart, but it should not stay there under an earthen vessel. “Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding forth the Word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain.” Philippians 2:14-16.
I am clothed in majesty and glory, robed in light as with a cloak. Psalm 104:1. When you are in Christ, you are clothed in Christ, so you too are clothed with majesty and glory, robed in light. And if My glory is shining on you, then the power is present to heal and give new life.
What brings the glory into manifestation? Faith. You know this, Jesus told you. Do you recall when Lazarus was sick and Martha and Mary sent for Jesus? When Jesus came, Lazarus had been in the tomb four days. But He told Martha that He is the Resurrection and the Life. When He walked to the tomb and told them to move away the stone that sealed it, Martha objected because her brother had been decomposing in there for four days and there would be a stench. But Jesus gave her the answer to how to bring the glory of the Kingdom to earth and get a Kingdom result. Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” John 11:40. She chose to believe and she saw the glory raise her brother from the dead. My goodness, My presence, My power. When healing took place in Jesus’ ministry, what did the people say? “Glory!” Today you might say “Wow” at the wonder.
I am always with you so the glory is there for you to reach out and take advantage of, but many do not. They are not aware of it. “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, and whose heart turns away from the LORD. For he will be like a bush in the desert and will not see when prosperity comes, but will live in stony wastes in the wilderness, a land of salt without inhabitant.” Jeremiah 17:5-6. The power to heal was present wherever Jesus went, but not everyone had faith to be healed or even noticed the power was present. They missed their visitation of glory. The Kingdom was at hand, but they did not reach out their hands to receive it.
The people of Nazareth tried to stone Jesus when He revealed His glory, and in trying to destroy Him, the glory slipped through their midst. If you recall the glory lifted off the Temple in Jerusalem while Ezekiel watched due to the leaders’ rejection of Me to turn to other gods and bring idols into My temple. And the people followed their leaders in the apostasy. The glory lifted from their midst, and the enemy came in and burned the city to the ground.
You have to consciously behold to recognize and live in the glory. “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.” 2 Corinthians 3:18. Jesus said, “For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.” John 6:40. The glory, the resurrection power. And He prayed to Me, “Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” John 17:24. “This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing but raise it up on the last day.” John 6:39.
How do you release My glory that is in you and around you in your life? In your days? In your place? The glory dwelling in your land—how do you access it?
Moses asked this question, “I pray You, show me Your glory!” Exodus 33:18. And what did I tell him? That I would make My goodness pass by him but I would put him in the cleft of the rock and cover him with My hand for he could otherwise not sustain My glory and live. Exodus 33:22. “For they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ.” 1 Corinthians 10:4. “O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the secret place of the steep cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.” Song of Songs 2:14. Hidden in Christ you can gaze on My glory on the Face of Christ. “For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.” Colossians 3:3-4.
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” John 10:27-30. The glory in My hand, “His radiance is like the sunlight; He has rays flashing from His hand, and there is the hiding of His power.” Habakkuk 3:4.
To see the glory manifest, you must be watching for My Word. Each morning be thinking, “What will He say to me?” “How will He direct me?” “How will He correct me when I am going the wrong way?” “How will He bless me?” Look for the good things that I fill your day with and the glory will manifest by faith in My goodness, presence and power. But I have something to tell you as the secret to the glory:
PERSEVERE IN HOLINESS WITHOUT WHICH NO ONE CAN SEE ME.
Holiness is purity of life lived in the Light of My truth. In the beauty of holiness you will be filled with My glory so that the power is in you to heal all, just as it is in Jesus.
Holiness permeates your entire being. It sets you apart from darkness and sanctifies you in the Light. If you walk with Me in the Light, the blood of Jesus continually cleanses you.
David sang, “Ascribe to the LORD the glory due to His name; worship the LORD in the majesty of holiness.” Psalm 29:2. Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. Psalm 96:9. This speaks of a life that has no hidden corners of darkness. All is in the Light. It is living pure as Jesus is pure, for you are His body on earth.
The fastest path to holiness is to stay close by Me all day and all night and walk in My Light. My Word is a light to your path and a lamp to your feet. Be holy as I am holy, and close to Me, imitating Me as My dear children, you will go from glory to glory as you increase in the majesty and beauty of holiness. A holy life is filled with Me. That is all it takes to be holy. And I made you in My image and likeness. So see yourself in the mirror of Christ, which is the mirror of My Word. And He makes you holy and blameless in My sight. Open your heart to the Light and you will find the glory.
I love you. Release My glory into the earth by doing the works of the Kingdom on earth. Loose the glory, for it is loosed in Heaven. Always remember that if you trust Me, everything will be all right, and more than that, it will be glorious. Don’t worry, I have not forgotten you.
