The Lord and His Glory
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
All of us, then, reflect the glory of the Lord with uncovered faces; and that same glory, coming from the Lord, who is the Spirit, transforms us into his likeness in an ever greater degree of glory. 2 Corinthians 3:18
Know The Holy Spirit
The Lord is the Lord and His glory is His glory. He is a person and His glory is His very blood, substance and essence. Some people confuse the two but they are not the same. We have a wonderful person with a wonderful personality and we have what emanates from Him and comes out of Him. He is a person.
The glory of God can be compared to sperm in a physical man. ( It can also be compared to water, food, cloud, smoke, blood, rock etc. ) There is spiritual sperm, blood, food etc. Demons also release their own filthy and dirty sperm into people and it destroys them.
A man releases sperm and babies are made and God releases His glory and life is created. Miracles, supernatural healings and deliverance occur. There is a natural glory of God. The Bible tells us that the whole world is full of His glory. Every good thing you see in nature reflects the glory of God. Even in my example of a man making a baby with a woman, the natural glory of God has to be with that couple for that to happen. When a human is under a curse, the natural glory and protection are reduced and diminished in their lives.
When the natural glory is absent, a man will be with no natural hedge or protection and plenty of demons will then inhabit him. He becomes like a public dustbin or toilet where people dump their problems and enter him to refresh, heal and cleanse themselves. People in this condition are the sacrificed humans who were turned into shrines and gods by human priests. The priests, including Catholic priests are clothed with demonic power that they use to force those humans to save humanity. Some have boasted to me that it is a good thing however they will never allow themselves to be the sacrificial victims. Man is naturally a wicked being. Only God can make man good and holy. A lot of pagan “good men” that you see are evil. I know this because God shows me people’s aura and spiritual coverings. Man looks at the external but God looks at the heart and He shows me the heart.
Now, a lot of people are interested in the glory or power that comes from the Lord but they are not interested in the Lord. They desire the gifts but they don’t desire the person. They treat the Lord like an object. The Lord once said to me, “I am not an object, I am a person. Most people treat me like I am an object but I am a person.” An object is something you can use to get your wants and please or satisfy yourself. An object has no emotions but a person has emotions. The Lord is a person with emotions and He can be hurt and grieved. We need to realize this.
When we desire what comes from the Lord without wanting fellowship, communion or relationship with Him, we leave the Lord cold and are not able to move Him. The Lord has chosen to be awakened and turned on by us – it is an honor not a burden. It makes relationship very sweet for the otter person to know your heart and how to move your spirit.
To turn someone on is to please, move, arouse, stir or excite that persons spirit to action and not necessarily sexual action. If you don’t move the Lord and turn Him on like how you turn on a light, you cannot experience or enjoy Him. You can also turn the Lord off or move, arouse, and stir Him to anger or jealousy.
For they provoked him to anger with their high places, And moved him to jealousy with their graven images. Psalm 78:58 ERV
They angered him with their high places; they aroused his jealousy with their idols. NIV
For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images. NASB
For an angel of the Lord went down at certain seasons into the pool and stirred up the water; whoever then first, after the stirring up of the water, stepped in was made well from whatever disease with which he was afflicted. John 5:4
The water in John 5:4 symbolizes the Holy Spirit because He is often refereed to as the water of life or living water. Because He is spiritual water, we are advised to thirst for Him.
Treating the Lord like an object is just like having a very cold husband or wife. Imagine a wife who just wants a man’s wealth for comfort, convenience, wealth, societal title, privilege and children. She even prefers to get sperm from him for artificial insemination but does not want any other kind of fellowship with her husband. She hates any form of intimacy with him – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. She simply wants to be a Mrs. She wants the children and wealth of the rich man but does not love or desire that man. It might sound cold and cruel but some people do not love their partners. They entered into the relationship for their own needs, comfort and convenience.
We cannot use that kind of attitude and mindset with the Lord because He knows everything. He sees through our schemes and cold hearts even when we are not even aware of our coldness and lukewarmness. The heart of man is very deceptive even to the owner of that heart. A lot of humans revel in pretense and are blinded by the same pretense and fakeness.
But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! Revelation 3:16
The Lord courted and chased us by dying for us on the cross. I have found out that the Lord has a lot of love and passion for man but He holds that passion in check because He perfectly in control. He exposed Himself emotionally and physically when He came to this earth to die for us and save us. He laid His love and passion bare for us to see. He was naked before us with nothing hidden.
When you expose your love and affections for someone you are naked before that person, that is why a lot of immature and insecure people hide their love. People hide their love because, If that person that they love is an immature person, he or she will begin to abuse, use and exploit them. If care is not taken, they will end up broken hearted and suffer from love sickness. A sick heart can kill a man. That is why the Bible says we should guard our hearts jealousy because out of the heart issues of life flow out.
That same attitude of using is the same attitude that most of us take with the Lord but fortunately, we cannot use the Lord, abuse Him, or exploit Him because He is very strong and powerful emotionally.
He is in firm control of His emotions and the fact that He loves us will not make him weak and let Him subject Himself to us to be used, controlled, abused and enslaved. This is one of the Character traits that I love most about the Lord. He is so strong, firm and loving. There is just no fault in Him. The Lord cannot be used but demons, on the other hand, who pretend to be gods can be controlled and used.
Since it is the Lord that gives the glory or supplies the glory, should we not try to make ourselves more compatible with Him? We should make ourselves more beautiful by being more submissive to Him. We should sincerely try to get to know Him as a person – His likes, His dislikes His desires, His word and His will. The more we know Him as a person and seek Him with worship, obedience and desire, the more He will release His presence and blood to us.
Jesus is Lord, the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ is Lord on earth here. Our success as Christians depend on how much we submit to the Holy Spirit and let Him work through us, as vessels of honor and glory. He is the Lord and His glory is available to us if we know how to have a working, active relationship with Him that is based on love and respect.
He wants to be loved, sought after and run after just like a bride seeking her beloved fiancé or husband. He wants us to respond to His love and passion with love and passion. When we get to Heaven, we will see the Lord Jesus as He is, and enjoy Him for who He is. What a wonderful place that Heaven is. To constantly behold the face of the Lord and enjoy His glorious presence and worship at His face, face to face.
While we are here on earth, we should be like the virgins that had oil in their lamps. Your spirit is the lamp and the oil is the degree of glory that resides in you. The Lord wants us to be full of oil and glory. Decide to seek the the Lord today so that you will enjoy Him the same way that you will enjoy Him in Heaven.
When I fellowship with the Lord and I enjoy intimacy with Him, it is indescribable. I am totally lost for words and smitten with love and adoration for Him. He has told me that what I enjoy with Him will be how heaven will be but at a much deeper and higher level.
The Lord is sweet, beautiful and interesting. His glory should be our number two quest after quest to know Him, love Him and obey Him. May we seek Him and know Him.
May great grace be upon us in Jesus. May grace, mercy and peace be ours in full measure.
