YOU CARRY THE GLORY IN YOU.
When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory. This shall be written for the generation to come… (Psalm 102:16,18).
The only thing the Christian is yet to receive that should happen in the earth is the redemption—the transformation or glorification of his physical body. Meaning that we’re going to put on a new body, but that body is going to come from heaven and the Bible tells us exactly when that’s going to happen. It says, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye…we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption…” (1 Corinthians 15:52-53).
However, currently, we carry in our earthly vessels, the glory of Christ. Paul calls it a treasure; he says, “…We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us”(2 Corinthians 4:7). The light of God is in you, in your spirit. You bear the perfections of Christ. Hallelujah!
The Bible says, “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”(2 Corinthians 4:6). You’re truly the living tabernacle of God! Christ is alive in you. Why is this so important?
It’s because the Church has transcended the babyhood stage; we’ve come of age! We read in our theme verse that when the Lord shall build up Zion, He shall appear in His glory; and this shall be written for the last generation. We are the last generation; the generation called to manifest His glory in the earth. This is what the earth has been waiting for. Romans 8:19 says, “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.” We’re in office; we’ve taken our place of dominion, impacting our world with the glory of God.
As I meditate on the Word, I’m continually transfigured; and not only do I walk in the glory of God, I am the glory of God! With this glory, I impact my world today, changing hopeless situations and shining ever so brightly in a dark world. I can never be defeated! Hallelujah!
John 17:22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Isaiah 60:1-2 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
