You know, sometimes when the enemy comes to you and you're trying to figure out really what you believe, go and look at the nature of God, you'll find that God is good. Why? Because He's part of the...His nature is part of His character but it's His glory to reveal Himself to us that He is good. ♪ [music] ♪ Thank you for joining me, friends, here. We're going to continue.
On this segment, I want to talk to you about what the glory of God is. When you think of the glory, what comes to mind? Smoke, cloud, brilliant light, pillar of fire? And that is good and we're going to get to that. But that glory of God really is not all that we have come to understand to be. The glory of God is simply, I'm going to use a scripture that's going to show us from Moses' experience in Exodus chapter 33, 18 through 20. Moses says to God,
"Please show me your glory."
Okay? So what happens next? God says,
"I'll make all my goodness to pass before you and I'll proclaim before you my name, the Lord, Yahweh, and I'll be gracious to whom I'll be gracious and I'll show mercy to whom I'll show mercy."
First, the glory of God is not smoke, it's not all the other things, even in the movies we have seen. The glory of God is the goodness of God. That's right. Moses says,
"I want you to reveal, show, demonstrate, manifest your glory to me."
Okay? Remember, God is asking him to go do this mission and God is saying,
"I'm going to be with you, my presence is going to be with you,"
but Moses says,
"Okay, if your presence is going to go with us and we're going to be distinct from all the other folks on the face of the earth, one more thing, please, show me your glory if we have found favor." And God says, "Okay, I'm going to come down and I'm going to show you my glory."
And God calls His goodness. Oh dear beloved, do we want to see the goodness of God in the land of the living? The goodness of God is a manifestation of His glory, so when you're looking and asking God for His glory, actually, you're asking God for His goodness because the glory of God is the goodness of God, and the truth is that God is good. It's the glory of God to reveal His goodness to His children. Amen? Because that's who He is. You want to see the glory? You are going to see the goodness of God. That is great news. It doesn't matter where you are or what you're going through right now. If you're seeking God like Moses is, he said,
"God, I can't do it, it looks impossible in the natural, but if you truly are going to go with us, show me your glory, give me a glimpse."
And God said,
"Okay, I'm going to cause my goodness and it's going to come and pass before you."
And then the second thing, the glory of God is, He says,
"I'm going to proclaim my name, the glory of God is the name of the Lord."
Put this in your spirit, the name Yahweh, the name that is connected to his covenant with us, that is connected to relationship. Every time in the scripture, you run across a verse and it uses the word Lord, it is talking about the covenant-keeping God, the covenant maker and the covenant-keeping God, Yahweh. And He says,
"I'm going to come and I'm going to reveal portions of my covenant, portions of my personality, of myself as the God who makes this covenant with you."
And we're going to study part of that covenant and what is in that covenant as He's your Lord. You see, He's not only saving you, but He's your Lord, your Master, but not as the Master just to lord over you, to choke you with a yolk over your neck, but this covenant, this Lord, is rooted in love, okay? Is rooted in mercy, that's why in the next verse, He says,
"I will show mercy to whom I will show mercy and I'll be compassionate, I'll be gracious."
Why? Because it's part of His glory. You see, it's part of His name, it's part of His nature, amen? So, the glory of God is the name of the Lord. You know, the bible tells us that the name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and they're saved, the name of the Lord, the name of Yahweh, okay? Why? Because the Lord is going to manifest Himself to you and I as our protection, our shield and buckler, okay? In the glory, He becomes that to us, that's great news because He wants us to be filled with His glory, to be clothed with His glory and He wants to manifest His glory through us before the nations so that all other people around you, they'll see the distinction that the glory of God has done in your life. Amen? Moses tells us that that's what makes us distinct from others. Amen?
So, the glory of God is the goodness of God. The glory of God is the name of the Lord, Yahweh, which we'll do in another series when we study on the name of the Lord because it's so huge and He's so powerful that we understand the reason why God has done everything is for His glory and for His name's sake. That's why right now even your salvation is for His glory and for His name's sake. You see? And His name also is love. You see? It's all intertwined in who He is, in His name and in His nature, okay? The glory of God is the name, the character or the attributes of God. Amen? According to Exodus 34 verse 6 through 7, this is what He said to Moses. When God...you know, still this is the conversation that's going on with Moses and God. Moses wants to see the glory of God and the bible say it,
"And God descended."
Remember, it wasn't a mist, it wasn't smoke, it wasn't...it says,
"God descended and he began to proclaim the Lord, the Lord God."
Amen? He becomes Yahweh God, the covenant-making God is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. That is the glory of God. God is preaching His glory to Moses and He says,
"Oh, you want to see my glory? Okay, I am merciful, I am slow to anger, I am gracious, I'm abounding in love and kindness and faithfulness and truth."
This is the glory of God,
"Keeping steadfast love for thousands."
"Forgiving iniquity and transgressions and sin, this is God, this is the glory of God."
The glory of God is the character of God, is the nature of God, is the attributes of God. You know, sometimes when the enemy comes to you and you're trying to figure out really what you believe, go and look at the nature of God. You'll find that God is good. Why? Because it's part of Him, His nature, is part of His character, but it's His glory to reveal Himself to us that He is good, he's merciful. The grace of God is part of His nature, it's part of His glory, the mercy of God. Many of us here, we don't deserve His mercy, we don't deserve anything from God, but because it's in His nature to redeem and to save and to seek and search for the lost, He's going to stop at nothing until He has you because that's His nature. Amen? So when you were looking at God as a God who is far away, that's not truth. He's not sitting out there in the space, in the clouds, God is with you, He's in you.
If you have experienced His mercy, His glory is in you, and if you haven't, then He wants to bring you into the true experience of the glory of God and it's my desire that you come to know Him, you come to know His nature, because as you tap into the full knowledge of His nature, His character and attributes, you are going to know the freedom that comes with knowing and being filled with the glory of God. I want to invite you to surrender yourself to the Holy Spirit, to teach you all there is about the glory of God. I want to invite you to yield to the Holy Spirit everything that God wants to release in this series regarding the glory. Father God, I pray for the spirit of wisdom and revelation and the knowledge of your glory for my friends, in Jesus' name, amen. You see, when Moses encountered the glory, God had to hide His face because he couldn't handle it. Today, we can encounter the full knowledge of that glory of God the father, son and the Holy Spirit with no veil because it's in the face of Jesus, Hallelujah!
