John 17:22-23 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Rev 15:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
Ps 50:14-15 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High: 15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
The Remnant is identified by their lack of seeking glory for themselves. They shine their light for the Lord, giving Him all the glory.
The goal of giving forth God’s glory is multipurpose.
For the Remnant personally it is a private time of just loving and appreciating Him for who He to us.
For the Remnant in the world it is for encouraging souls to come into the kingdom. As people realize who He really is, by watching and listening to His Remnant and seeing His miraculous works in their lives, they are drawn to Him to get saved.
Unfortunately, a lot of the church world today is built on self-glorification. There are many megachurches with self-indulging leaders who preach a prosperity gospel that educates people to give “me” and “God will give you”.
They have lost sight of God and are building their own goals and making themselves look important. The world looks on and is not fooled. Only those who attend their services and listen to their false gospel of ease are drawn into their farce.
God truly blesses givers who give out of an honest heart. True giving is for His glory, not that of man. As the giver gives into God’s kingdom He returns a blessing to them; their needs are met. He gives back out of His abundant supply and love for His own.
In the Old Testament God’s glory and presence was associated with bright piercing light, fire, smoke and clouds. His presence was definitely spiritual in application and visibility. It was undeniable.
Ex 24:16-17 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud. 17 And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.
Ex 40:34-35 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. 35 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
Ex 3:2-4 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
2 Chron 5:14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.
In the New Testament we move into a new realm, that of the glory of His presence moving inside the temple of our bodies. We are changed moment by moment and from glory to glory as we prepare for Jesus’ return for the Remnant-Bride.
2 Cor 3:17-18 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Because of the sin in the Garden of Eden, God could no longer be physically in the presence of His creature, man. He dealt with them through holy men, angels, visions, fire, clouds, light, burning bushes, etc.
Ex 33:20-23 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live. 21 And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock: 22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by: 23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen.
John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
To break the power of this problem Father God sent His only Begotten Son into the breach. Jesus was even called, “God with Us” because the Father could dwell within the body of His sinless Son, as Spirit. This is the same way that He now comes to live within our being. A body does not jump into us, the Spirit of our Living God does. He wants to take up His abode IN us
Matt 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
John 14:23-25 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me. 25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
Rom 8:9-11 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
2 Cor 6:14-18 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
