God is a God of glory. The word glory appears frequently in the Bible. In the Old Testament it is the translation of the Hebrew word (kabod), when speaking of God’s glory.
The Aramaic word for glory, Shekinah, has become the word used for God’s glory by the Jews. When the Old Testament was translated into Greek, the writers used the word (doxa) for glory; a word which encompasses a much broader meaning and which brought the words kabod and shekinah together, as the translation for both.
Together, the glory of God is his character and his divine nature; it is the very essence of his presence; the invasion of His reality to man. Even though the earth is full of God’s presence and glory, many do not perceive it.
This season in our church, God has whispered two specific things to our ears. First is that His glory Is making a difference in our midst. Second is that, the difference His glory is making is as a result of the transformation He is bringing. May we all encounter His glory in Jesus name.
Encountering His glory depends on the person’s spiritual tuning. We can experience Him in different ways. One can encounter His glory through prayers, deep worship, signs and wonders, personally knowing Jesus Christ. We can also encounter His goodness when we remove impediment (sin) from our ways, through the Holy Spirit.
Exodus 14:19-21, 30:18-23, Isaiah 6:1-3, Revelations 1:9-12, Hebrews 1:3, 2Corintians 3:18, Acts 1:8, 7:55, Haggai 2:6-7
We need greater revelation of God’s glory and grace. When glory comes down, it’s a bit of Heaven’s atmosphere coming down to us, a taste of His manifest presence.
