The Supernatural Power of God is manifesting in undeniable ways all around the world! We are barely two months into this New Year and the evidence of The Glory Story is being witnessed!
There are unmistakable authentications (proofs being demonstrated) that The Father is bearing witness to His Word with signs, wonders and demonstrations of Holy Ghost.
Please take note, The Glory is not limited to a particular denomination – there are no limitations as God is answering the prayers of His People. Holy Ghost is arraying the Church with Glory; that is, everyone who believes Jesus has come in the flesh and have confessed Him as Lord of their life. (See 1 John 4:2 and 1 John 5:10-12
Approximately, thirty-five years ago I personally began to witness The Power of Holy Ghost actively involved in many church services. Now, with the aid of technology and the internet, I can view The Glory of God in church services all over the world. I credit this Ever Increasing Glory to The End of Days (fulfillment of prophecies) and people who are hungry for The One-True-God. (See Acts 2:17 and Matthew 5:6)
Let’s look at The Prayer of Jesus in John’s Gospel:
· John 17:20-24 “Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
· 21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
· 22 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.
· 24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.”
We can mutually agree that our Savior always receives the answers to His Prayers. He prayed for the Apostles and those that would believe on Him through their words. We are the beneficiaries of the Apostle’s words.
Now take note of verse twenty-one: “That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us…” One of the most distinct characteristics of The Glory is “ONENESS”.
The value of oneness in The Godhead is distinguished by the fact - no Personality overrules The Other! GOD became a “MAN” through Jesus to fulfill “The Mission”. Selah! The “I AM” God actually deposited Himself into flesh, became human and He walked among His Creation. (See Luke 1:35 and 1 Timothy 3:16)
Jesus was born into the earth, He published the Good News, was tormented by man, died and was raised from the dead: so we would have access to God The Father. He underwent suffering at a level no human could conceivably endure – because of The Mission.
Holy Spirit consented, even with The Vastness of His Presence, to make His Home in unregenerate man as they received The Mission of The Godhead and became born-again.
Each Member of The Godhead submitted to The Mission of reconnecting humanity with God, so that once again He could have intimate fellowship with His man. This time, however, the Covenant is not between God and man; it is between The Father and The Son. Holy Spirit is The Security Deposit on what is to come once Jesus becomes Lord of our lives.
When we consider The Father’s, The Son’s and Holy Ghost’s Roles to usher us into The Presence of God, we have only began to explore The Depths of our God. (See Psalm 40:5 and 1 Corinthians 2:9-11)
In verse twenty-four of John the 17th chapter we read The Savior is praying for us to “…behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world …”
Saints, this is The Same Glory which will sustain us throughout eternity and the richness or His Glory is available by faith to us now.
· Romans 9:23 “And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,”
· Ephesians 3:16 “That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;”
We can approach The Father because we are clothed with Him and live in His Presence and adorned in His Holy Attire. We do not have to wait for Heaven to experience this level of Glory. We can receive such honor from The Father by receiving The Glory Story.
I was in prayer on one occasion and sensed that I had actually stepped out of this dispensation. As I continued in prayer I began to be aware that I was in another dispensation observing the order of that age. Within milliseconds, information was deposited in me that this was The Age of The One-Thousand Year Reign of Christ. (See Revelation 20:6)
Initially I stumbled in an attempt to mentally grasp what had happened. In fact, that experience was ultra-strange. However, Jesus said My Sheep know my voice – I knew this disclosure was from Him. (See John 10:14 and 27)
What I gained in that time in prayer is that the end of this age will flow (for the Believer) right into the next age. (We will be in Heaven during the tribulation period. For seven years with Jesus we shall be celebrating The Marriage Supper of The Lamb and receiving our rewards.) (See Revelation 19:5-9) The Church is becoming naturally supernatural based on what The Lord had impressed in my spirit.
Holy Spirit was actually informing me of how close we are to the end of The Church Age. Beloved, please understand, we are living in times when there will be constant displays of God’s Glory.
Your ability to comprehend the ongoing supernatural events of this age is based on your level of intimacy with The Father. “Because for the mind to be given up to earthly things means death; but for it to be given up to spiritual things means Life and peace.” (Romans 8:6 Weymouth’s New Testament)
Hebrews 6:4-6 “For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.”
· According to Hebrews 6:4-5, the Believer has been “…made to see and experienced the heavenly gift and made partners of Holy Ghost 5) and has experienced the good Word of God, and the miraculous powers of an age to come.” (Paraphrased)
Christians today are special! We have the honor of helping our God close out this age. We have made contact with the heavenly gift and are partners with Holy Ghost! We have encountered the good Word of God and His Miraculous Powers: there is no turning away for us!
Beloved, we are living in times where we could be caught-up and cross over into The Millennial Age at any moment. A central theme throughout the Word of God is He saves the best for last.
The end of The Church Age was planned by The Father to be our most influential and most powerful time while on earth. Seeing signs, wonders, and miracles is rapidly becoming more common in our assemblies throughout the world as an indication of The Power of God flowing through His Church.
We have been engrafted into The Body of Christ as eternal beings. So, it should be understood, like Christ Jesus, we were destined to experience the eternal powers of our God. (See 2 Corinthians 4:18)
Now is not the time to think we know everything there is to know about God. The Word tells us about Him and Holy Ghost is present to reveal Him. Give place to more understanding of our God as The Glory Story continues to unfold!
Philemon 1:21: “Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.”
