Preparing For HIS Glory

 

Greetings,

It has been a while since we have written to you because there is a lot that has happened in our lives and in the heavenly kingdom.


We truly are living in the last days where the explorations of the kingdom is taking place in these days.


All I know is that the trumpet of the Lord is blowing calling His Bride to come unto Him.


In these days we are seeing how the enemy is winning and it is time for the church to wake up, and get on their knees and cry out to God to have mercy over us and this nation.



Let me share this word with you:

 

 

Turn your bibles to Rev 1:7

“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”


What does this mean to us today ?


John was writing to the believers, to wake up.

Daniel 7:13, “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man,[a] coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence.”


Zechariah 12:10.  “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit[a] of grace and supplication. They will look on[b] me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.”

 


One tells of the power and glory of Jesus when He establishes His Kingdom in the world, and the other, of the conversion of Israel.  


John is talking about these scriptures of the day when the Lord’s kingdom will be here and all the people of the earth will repent, because every eye will see Jesus.


This is the purpose of God - that all mankind might come to Him.  


This is progressive.


God gave a promise to pour out His Spirit upon all flesh.


This does not mean it will happen to every single person, but rather that it will happen to all who come to Him.


It is an on-going process.


The day will come when every believer will see Him, and all the tribes of the earth will repent, as His Kingdom is established throughout the whole world.

 

As we see the church repenting from its ways, God will bring many of His people to Him, and they will be able to enter into His presence and see Him.


As more and more people come to Jesus, so that “every eye” shall see Him, until eventually His glory will fill the whole earth.  He will rule as King of kings and Lord of lords.  


One day, all nations will see His glory, and bow before Him.

 


Isaiah 66:18,

“And I, because of what they have planned and done, am about to come[a] and gather the people of all nations and languages, and they will come and see my glory”

23:  “From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,” says the Lord. “

 


John saw the Lord on a white horse, making war against the wicked..

 

(Revelation 19:11)
I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war.”

 


Does this mean that Jesus will come galloping across the sky?


Not necessarily.


These are figurative terms which describe His power and status.


Great warriors rode on white horses as a symbol of their rank.


“From out of the mouth of the Lord came a great sword.”


This can hardly be literal, but illustrates His authority in that the Word of God is the sword of the Spirit,





Hebrews 4:12,

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart”.

 


Ephesians 6:17

“Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”

 

 


The book of Revelation is filled with symbols and figures, and in this way describes the Lord returning in power to conquer the world.

 

In Revelation 1:10-18,

 

“On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, 11 which said: “Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.”

12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man,[a] dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.

17 When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. 18 I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades”.

 

 

When John was in the spirit, “in the Spirit,” he saw the glorified Lord standing in the midst of the candlesticks, or Churches, His face shining like the sun.


It was when he was in the spirit.


We need to learn to walk in the spirit in the last days!


It was after this that John entered the realm of the Lord and described the glory of God in similar terms as Ezekiel.

 


Ezekiel 1:1;

“In my thirtieth year, in the fourth month on the fifth day, while I was among the exiles by the Kebar River, the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God”.

 


Rev 4:2-11

“At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.

3 And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne.

4 Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on them were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads.

5 From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. In front of the throne, seven lamps were blazing. These are the seven spirits[a] of God.

6 Also in front of the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.

In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back.

7 The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle.

8 Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stop saying:

“‘Holy, holy, holy

is the Lord God Almighty,’[b]

who was, and is, and is to come.”

9 Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever,

10 the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

11  “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”

 


John saw and entered the Shekinah glory of Jesus, and was in the very presence of that Glory.

 

John was not taken in rapture, but was “in the Spirit,” and entered the heavenly realm.


Most people think that when bad things start to happen we will be reputed, that will not be the case.


John says that when he was in the spirit, he was able to describe the temple of God in that realm that was opened, and the ark of His covenant (a symbol of Christ) appeared.

 

Again, he described the temple being filled with smoke from the glory and power of God.

 


Revelation 15:8,  “And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.”

 

 

John also said that Jesus will come “in the clouds.”


Jesus used these very terms when He spoke to the high priest and said that from that time on, he would see Jesus sitting on the right hand of power, and “coming on the clouds of heaven”

 

 

Matthew 26:64

“You have said so,” Jesus replied. “But I say to all of you: From now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.”

 


He quoted from Daniel 7 and used the terms that the high priest knew referred only to the Messiah.


This coming started on the day of Pentecost, and is applicable to the whole Church-Age.


During this time, many revivals have swept through the world as the “clouds” of God’s presence have come, again and again in Holy Spirit outpourings, until one day Jesus Himself will stand among His people.

 

His power has been coming ever since, and will continue to come, until the whole world bows the knee to Him. As the Holy Spirit hovers like a cloud over the Church in ever increasing power, the day will come when Jesus Himself will return and be visible in the temple of His people, in His Shekinah Glory.

 

 

Acts 15:16-18; Galatians 6:16, 3:7,29; Ephesians 1:22, 23, 2:19-22; I Corinthians 3:16, 17, 6:19, 12:27: II Corinthians 6:16; Philippians 3:3.

 

 

God is preparing His people, for His glory.  


Look at the last week of His earthly life. Jesus entered the temple and cleansed it, and then was present within it every day, teaching and healing the sick.


This is a shadow of things to come.


The true Church is comprised of every blood-washed believer.  It is not a denomination, but a living temple or tabernacle. Jesus alone cleanses it, lives in it, and prepares it for His coming reign in glory.


Each Christian believer is a tabernacle in which the Lord Himself indwells, by His presence.

He cleanses the temple and indwells it.

 

 

II Corinthians 6:16-18,

What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God,  and they will be my people.”[c]

17 Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord.

Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.”[d]

18 And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters,

says the Lord Almighty.”[11 corn 5 :14]”.


For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.
