A GREATER GLORY
II Corinthians 3:7-8 NKJV "But if the ministry of death, written and
engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could
not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his
countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the
Spirit not be more glorious?"
There are levels of glory. It's
easy to think that because the face of Moses shined, that he had a great
glory upon him, but that's not true! Our faces may not be shining
"physically" but our spirits are! There's glory in us! Jesus had great
glory in Him but they didn't know until He was transfigured before
Peter, James and John. When the devil looks at us, he sees the glory!
Look at how the glory upon Moses was described, "a
glory that was passing away". It was a glory from the ministry of
condemnation; but today, we are able ministers of the New Testament, a
ministry of life! What was upon Moses was nothing at all compared to
what's in us! Hallelujah!
II Corinthians 3:9-11 says, "For if the
ministry of condemnation had glory, the ministry of righteousness
exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious had no glory
in this respect, because of the glory that excels. For if what is
passing away was glorious, what remains is much more glorious."
