Thank you for joining us again here on Kingdom Come Broadcast. I'm glad you're tuning in because we are continuing with the study on the wonders of God's glory. Now, today we are going to bring it to a conclusion on this particular segment on what is the glory of God, okay?
If you turn with me to Exodus 33:20, here, I want to show you that the glory of God is actually the face of God. I want you to just let that sink in, "The glory of God is the face of God." Listen to...Moses, remember Chapter 33 of Exodus Verse 18, he asked God to see His glory, right?
And then Exodus 33:20, God said,
"You cannot see my face, for no man can see me and live."
Remember he said, "Show me your glory" in Verse 18? Verse 20, God said, "No, you cannot see my face." The glory of God and the face of God are one and the same. So, every time you read the scripture and it talks about the face of God, actually, God is talking about His glory. You read a scripture and it talks about the glory of God, actually, God is talking about His face.
That's why in 2nd Chronicles 7:14, he says,
"If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves, pray, seek my face, turn from their wicked ways, I'll hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land."
You see, part of the whole conditions, as I call them, for the greatest outpouring, the greatest revival that the world is going to see, really, they are based on that particular verse, 2nd Chronicles 7:14. But one of the conditions is seeking the face of God, okay?
So, He's saying, "If you are going to see healing of the land, you have to learn to seek my face." Amen? And we learned that the face of God is in the face of Jesus. When we learn to gaze at the face of Jesus, we can begin to see and encounter the glory of God in our own life. Now, I'm going to show you in the later episodes on how can you and I experience this glory that we've been talking about.
And remember, I want to, again to draw a distinction. There are two kinds of glory that we can deal with. But in this series, we are talking about the glory as it pertains to the presence, not the honor, not the renown. But we're talking about as it pertains to the heavy, the weightiness of God, the essence of God, the name and the character of God.
I'm going to show you there're other things here that the Bible says is glory. But really, when you look at them, they're the manifestation. For example, Psalm 19:1, He says that, "The heavens declare the glory of God." The heavens declare, right? They declare. They preach. They reveal. I'll put that under the manifestation of God's glory. When you look at the heavens, the Earth, and everything in it, you see the manifestation of God's beauty, the God's transcendence wisdom, and God's creative nature, and God's genius. Amen?
When you look at all that He's done. But what we are dealingwith is the essence, that nature, the character as defined to Moses. Amen? When we seek the face of God, when we seek to see His face, to love on His face, to look into His eyes, we are seeking His glory. And it's so crucial.
Colossians 2:9, He says,
"For in Him," meaning Christ, "dwells all the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form."
When Jesus was here on Earth, the Godhead, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, He embodied the fullness of God's glory as He walked on the Earth. Amen? And then He said,
"It's expedient that I go. Because when I go, the Holy Spirit is coming."
The Holy Spirit continues, as I'm going to show you in the next segment. He continues to abide and dwell and be with us. So we have this abiding presence, that where they got the term, the word "shekinah."
And I'm going to show you. But God, His presence, is also the secret place. The secret place of the Almighty God in Psalm 91 is also the glory of God. Let that sink in.
"He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."
When you are dwelling in the secret place of the Most High God, you are dwelling in His glory. When you are dwelling in the shadow on the Almighty God, you are dwelling in the glory of God. And then I want you to study that Psalm from beginning to end, from Verse 1 all the way to 16, because it also lists a lot of the results of the glory of God in your life, for you and through you.
Psalm 91. So, the secret place of the Almighty God is also the glory of God. w, remember, we are talking about the glory of God as it relates to His essence, His presence, His person, His character,
His nature, His attributes, His name. Amen? His goodness.
Psalm 31:20, He says,
"You shall hide them in the secret place of your presence." You see, David tells us that God will hide us in the secret place of His presence. The presence and the secret place, they are one and the same. So, as we finish talking about what is the glory, the secret place of the Most High God is the glory of God. That when you are hidden in the glory of God, actually, you can begin to experience what Psalm 91 is all talking about.
"I will say of the Lord, 'You are my shield and my buckler. You are my refuge. You are my deliverer. You are my protector."
All that begins in the secret place, in the glory of God. Because in the glory of God is God Himself. Amen? Now, the Bible says, Isaiah 43:7, that we are created for His glory. Again, the glory that we give to Him and the glory that He gets out of us before the nations. Let me say that again. We are created for His glory. The honor, the praise, the worship, the adoration that He receives are of us. Amen?
But also, there's the glory that He manifests before the nations through us. We are created for both, okay? We honor Him in our actions, in our doings, in our obedience, in our surrender, in our
everyday lives. That's why He hasn't created you if you are going to really glorify God. He hasn't created you to go into hiding, because there's a are nations out there that are waiting for the display of this glory.
He wants to fill the nations. He wants to fill the Earth. He wants to fill your neighborhood. You see? He wants to fill the marketplace with the glory, and He does that by revealing and manifesting His glory that is already abiding in you. Now, He begins to release it through you. You see what I'm saying? And then you are not only carrying the glory. You're not only you in your closet, in your personal life just glorifying, but you're also glorifying Him publicly before your neighborhood, before the nations, before your community, before your family, before the lost. Amen?
Because God say this year was the greatest year of the outpouring,of the manifestation of His glory, and it is so crucial that we understand that the glory of God is the face of God. The glory of God is His secret place, and in the secret place, we are equipped for life that glorifies Him. A life of power, a life of fruitfulness and effectiveness, a life that advances His kingdom here on Earth, it begins in the glory, and it's going to end in the glory. God bless you.
