Spirit of Glory!

“….for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. [b]On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified” (I Peter 4:14).

The anointment of glory is the big anointment which God gives us. The grace of God is the biggest gift God gives to the church which is His body. Just before experiencing the suffering on the cross, Jesus said, “Father, I desire that they also whom you gave me may be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory which You have given me; And the glory which you gave me I have given them, that they may be one just as we are one” (John 17:24, 22).

That grace alone could convert you as the suitable bride for Christ who has perfect grace. Through this Spirit of grace your nature, characteristics, and all other things will be transformed into similar to that of Christ. The psalmist writes about this as, “The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace; her clothing is woven with gold” (Psalm 45:13).

Generally, the glorious deeds of Christ are also termed as glory. Jesus did a glorious deed in Cana. We see another glorious deed of Christ in the 11th chapter of the Gospel of John. He told Martha that she could witness the divine glory if she believed. Accordingly, Jesus resurrected Lazarus four days after his death.

The praise and worship we present to God is another glory. When the Pastor says “Praise God”, we raise our hands and say “Thank you, Jesus, Thank you, Jesus.” Solomon had a glory. Joseph had so much of glory in Egypt. But the “Divine Glory” is a “Shekinah Glory” which fully belongs to God and God alone. It is God’s Shekinah glory which provides light to the whole of the most Holy place in the tabernacle of meeting.

We will see the King of Glory very soon with our own eyes and rejoice. When the archangel makes the trumpet to sound, 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 by the Spirit of the Lord” (II Corinthians 3:18).

Dear children of God, the time of the Coming of God is very near. Have a longing to meet Him. I have come to know that He will stand on the earth on the last day. “I shall see for myself and my eyes shall behold and not another,” says Job, the devotee. Dear children of God, do you have such an urge within you?

To meditate: “Lift up your heads, O you gates!And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!And the King of glory shall come in” (Psalm 24:7).
