MANIFESTING THE GLORY WITHIN YOU
II Corinthians 4:3-4, 6 NKJV "But even if our gospel is veiled, it is
veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has
blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory
of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. For it is the
God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our
hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the
face of Jesus Christ."
John 2:11 says, "This beginning of signs
Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His
disciples believed in Him." In the past two days I've shown you from the
Scriptures that having been born again, the image of God (that is, the
glory of God) is within you. 2 Corinthians 4:3-6 shows us that the glory
came by the word when we believed it. Hallelujah
The glory is
meant to be manifested. It's the divine nature of God in us that
overcomes every form of darkness in the world. The world eagerly awaits
our manifestation, and we've got to manifest as Jesus did if we are
serious about having them saved.
We are the light of the world!
Isaiah 60:1 says to arise, and shine, because the light has come and the
glory of God has risen upon us. 2 Corinthians 4:6 says that God has
shone in us! Wow! That's mind-blowing! When you arise and begin to
shine, it says that kings shall come to the brightness of your rising!
The more of the glory in you, the more you shine. 2 Corinthians 3:18
says that as we continue to behold Him, we are changed into the same
image, from glory to glory! Glory to God!
