Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is – 1 John 3:2 NIV.
During worship at church a couple of weeks ago the presence of God was so thick and tangible you couldn’t help but kneel, weep and worship our Father. The man of God invited everyone to soak it in and to receive anything you required from God (deliverance, healing or restoration). God’s glory was manifested in a way words can’t do it justice. Even to this day when I think about it I still weep. I even remember the song the worship team was singing.It was just a foretaste of what our Father’s glory will be like when He is revealed. The above scripture says what we will become has not yet been revealed. Yet when we see Him in His glory we shall be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. He in all of His glory will automatically transform us into His exact likeness. At that moment our transformation will be complete.Moses asked the Lord to show him His glory and the Israelites could not look at his face. This was the former glory that was passing yet its effects were unbelievable. We who are incubators of God’s Spirit should manifest His glory even more. The manifestation of His glory in us and through us ought to be a daily occurrence and not a chance encounter. Jesus told Martha that if she believed she would see the glory of God (John 11:40). Like everything else in the kingdom you can receive it by faith (take it by force).When they were stoning Stephen he looked up and saw the glory of God and his present circumstance did not scare him and he was at peace. He even prayed for them because he was in the glory and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding kept his heart and mind in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7). He was in God’s rest. Father show us Your glory.
