GOD’S GLORY INSIDE HUMANS

God’s actual glory, His weightiness, a physical manifestation of God, a shining forth, His copiousness, His splendor, His majesty literally inside of a human being? Is it possible? Yes!

“God’s Glory Inside Humans”

3519 kabod — properly, weight,
but figuratively, splendor (magnificent features or qualities),
copiousness (abundance, plenty, richness, fullness),
imposing presence, honor,
nobility as with a member of a royal family,
a physical manifestation of God.
a shining forth.

The Trumpet Blast:

Father, I know You want me to speak this truth,
because time is short and the church must be ready
so she may enter the wedding feast with Jesus Christ, our Bridegroom,
and not be left on the wrong side of a shut door. (Matthew 25:10)

Your glory inside humans — a physical manifestation of You in us:
Your kabod,
splendor (magnificent features or qualities),
copiousness (abundance, plenty, richness, fullness),
imposing presence, honor,
nobility as with a member of a royal family.

Father, this truth is NOT taught in the church. Why?

I’ll hold His answer until the end.

God’s plan for the church, the bride of His Son:

2 Corinthians 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.

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and  gave Himself up for her,  26  so that He might sanctify her, having  cleansed her by the  washing of water with  the word,  27 that He might  present to Himself the church in all her glory [literally, the church glorious], having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be  holy and blameless.  

God’s command and promise:

Isaiah 60:1  “Arise [stand up], shine [become bright and resplendent];
    for your light has come,
    And the glory [kabod] of the LORD has risen upon you.
2 “For behold,  darkness will cover the earth
    And deep darkness the peoples;
    But the LORD will rise [come forth, shine] upon you
And His glory [kabod] will appear upon you.
3 “Nations will come to your light [luminousness],
And kings to the brightness [radiance] of your rising [shining].

Yes, this referred to Israel in the end times, and to Jesus Christ to whom kings came (Matthew 2:1-2).

But it also refers to us as those who belong to Christ! You, dear one, are to be a light of the world, salt that can be tasted.

God then tells us how we become these lights:

This is the stumbling block for the church.

Leaders and pastors want people in our pews. We feed them half the truth, because we don’t want them to feel bad about themselves.

Jesus Christ is here right now to save us and cleanse and transform us, but in many megachurches, there’s no evidence of transformation in those who have said the words and been baptized in water.

Leaders and pastors refuse to teach repentance.

Isaiah 40:3 A voice is calling,
    “Clear the way for the LORD in the wilderness;
    Make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.
4 “Let every valley be lifted up,
And every mountain and hill be made low;
    And let the rough ground become a plain,
    And the rugged terrain a broad valley;
5  Then the glory of the LORD will be revealed . . .

Repentance! These were the words John the Baptist spoke, too. They were his marching orders. Because God comes only through repentance.

Repentance means there’s something in us that must be fixed. We are turned in the wrong direction, and need to do a 180-degree about-face. Only God can fix what is wrong; only He can make the crooked straight.

Clear the way for the Lord in your heart!

You’re in a desert, but if you will agree with God that you are away from Him because of your sin, He will cleanse you.

Everyone who does this is a valley, a humbled place. A fruitful place, too. He will lift you up, humble one who agrees with God that a heart change is needed.

But all who are self-righteous, who think they can be good enough in their own strength? They will be humbled.

It’s for their own good, so they will see their spiritual state and cry out to God!

You must let Him do what only He can do. He will make all the rough ground smooth, and will make a wide space in your heart, a place where His glory can dwell.

THEN the glory of the Lord will be revealed. He will fill you with His glory!

And listen to this:

Psalm 45:10   Listen, O daughter [bride-to-be], give attention and incline your ear:
     Forget your people and your father’s house;
11 Then the King will desire your beauty.
    Because He is your Lord,  bow down to Him.
12 The daughter of  Tyre will come with a gift;
    The  rich among the people will seek your favor.
13   The King’s daughter is all glorious within;
    Her clothing is interwoven with gold.
14 She will be  led to the King  in embroidered work;
    The  virgins, her companions who follow her,
    Will be brought to You.
15 They will be led forth with gladness and rejoicing;
    They will enter into the King’s palace.

Forget your people and your father’s house —
it’s what a bride was supposed to do when she was betrothed.
Do not love them more than your bridegroom.
You belong to Him now.

For us, it is to be oblivious to the world system into which you were born.
It is to not love the world or the things of the world (1 John 2:15).

Ephesians 5:11  Do not participate in the unfruitful  deeds of  darkness, but instead even expose them; 14 For this reason  it says,
    “ Awake, sleeper,
    And arise from the dead,
    And Christ will shine on you.”
17 So then do not be foolish, but  understand what the will of the Lord is.  18 And  do not get drunk with wine,  for that is  dissipation, but be  filled with the Spirit . . .

Father, why isn’t this truth taught in the church?

Because no one wants to hear that there’s a twisting in them
that needs straightening.

No one wants to hear that they must empty themselves of their self-exaltation, their glory (Philippians 2:7) in order to have His! Have the same mind in you which was in Christ Jesus!

Moreover, the leaders in the church
instruct their pastors not to speak of sin
because it will be a “turn-off”
and they say the concept of sin
is difficult for many cultures to understand.

How, then, do we explain the Apostle Paul’s great success in planting churches in the beginning, in a very wide range of cultures?

Isaiah 2:5  Come, house of Jacob [and church],
   and let us walk in the light of the LORD.  
6 For You have abandoned Your people, the house of Jacob,
    Because they are filled with influences from the east,
    And they are soothsayers like the Philistines,
    And they strike bargains with the children of foreigners.

Leaders, let us walk in the light. ‘Fess up! Walking in His light means walking in His truth.

Every human understands what sin is.
The Holy Spirit breaks down ALL barriers.
The GOSPEL is the power of God for salvation.
Mankind needs a Savior from God’s wrath which we are under.
That is what GOD says.

Christian, let us walk in the light.
You’re sinning.
The Holy Spirit has convicted you.
Agree with God!

Church, walk in the light as Jesus Christ is in the light, and He will cleanse you:

1 John 1:6  If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and  do not practice the truth;  7 but if we walk in the Light as  He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and  the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.

If you are sinning, you are walking in darkness.

You do not walk in the truth, in what God has for you, what He has done through His Son, Jesus.

Jesus will cleanse you from ALL sin,
and then you will be God’s will in this very dark world.

You will be all glorious within,
you will be ready, filled with God’s kabod,
reflecting His Son in these dark times.

He will pour out His grace on you. His door will be open wide to you. Open wide to Him today!

Empty yourself of your glory!

Receive His kabod,
His weight,
His splendor (magnificent features or qualities),
His copiousness (abundance, plenty, richness, fullness),
His imposing presence, honor,
His nobility as with a member of a royal family,
a physical manifestation of God.
a shining forth.
