Behold the Glory of God

Have you beheld the glory of God?

The experience of all believers in Christ is expressed in the words of the apostle Paul, “We, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit” (2 Corinthians 3:18).

Jesus Christ came that men might see His glory and believe on Him (Jn. 20:31). At the miracle in Cana of Galilee, Jesus “revealed His glory, and His disciples put their faith in Him” (John 2:11). The disciples saw His glory during the day of His flesh, and believed that God had visited them.

“We beheld His glory.” What was it they saw? John testified, “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth” (Jn. 1:14).

The apostle John literally says, “He pitched His tent among us.” He “tabernacled” Himself among men. John has in mind the Jewish tabernacle in the wilderness, or the portable “tent of meeting” which was the center of worship in the Hebrew nation.

The tent that housed the tabernacle was about 45 feet long and 15 feet wide, and was divided into two rooms, called the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies. The Ark of the Covenant was the only piece of furniture in the Holy of Holies also called the Most Holy Place.

It is important to keep in mind that everything about the tabernacle centered on the worship of the LORD God. But it served a greater purpose of pointing to the coming of the Son of God who would pitch His tent among us so we could behold His glory and worship Him.

The tabernacle was the center of worship in the Old Testament. Today we gather around the person of the Lord Jesus Christ and worship the LORD God. “It is through Jesus alone that we have access by one Spirit unto the Father” (Eph. 2:18).

The tabernacle symbolized the dwelling place of the LORD God. The divine glory in the Holy of Holies symbolized the holy presence of God with His people.

The second person of the Trinity became a human being and “pitched His tent among us.” God became man and lived among us. In Him man could behold God’s glory.

The tabernacle was the center of Israel’s camp in the wilderness (Num. 2:17). Everything centered around it. It is highly significant that Jesus Christ “is the center of the Christian encampment. He is our gathering place,” notes Boice. Jesus said, “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself” (Jn. 12:32). “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them” (Matthew 18:20).

The tabernacle was where the testimony of God’s self-revelation was preserved. A copy of the Law of Moses was preserved in the Ark of the Covenant.

Jesus Christ came to fulfill the law completely. “Do not think that I came to abolish the law or the prophets; I do not come to abolish, but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17). He came to bring the law to full completion, perfection and give complete obedience to it. Indeed, Jesus was the complete fulfillment of its type, prophecies and payment of the penalty of sin.

The apostle John saw that God had been revealed in the flesh of His unique Son and declared, “We have seen His gory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father.” Jesus replaced the ancient tabernacle of God. In His flesh He is the manifestation of God’s presence and power on earth. God meets with man today and speaks to him in the second tabernacle. Instead of a limited revelation of Himself as was given to Moses (Ex. 33:20), we have the full, revelation of God, “the exact representation” of the invisible God in His Son (Heb. 1:30.

The old tabernacle was the place where the sacrifices were made reminding the people of Israel “without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin” (Heb. 9:22).

There is no other name given among men were by we must be saved (Acts 4:12). There is no salvation except through faith in the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 5:21Heb. 9:11-14). “The blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanses us from all sin” (1 Jn. 1:7).

The perfect sacrifice of the Lamb of God was offered up to the LORD God in the tabernacle of His own flesh at the cross of Calvary. Have you put your faith in Him and beheld His gory and worshipped Him? Yes, you can “behold the glory of God” today.

Do you worship it more than Him?

“You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything Exodus 20:3-4 New International Version

Who or what do you put above God?

Are you more concerned about keeping in physical shape than you are about spending time worshipping God and serving Him? Do you spend as much time with your Bible as you do at the gym?

How about your car? Do you take better care of your car than you do the needs of the needy? Do you spend more time with your career than you do serving God?

Are not these things images that are more important to you than God?

I live a very simple life.

Spending time every morning reading Gods love letter and instruction manual, the Bible, is the most important time of my day.

I know that when I do even the simplest good deed I do so as an act of honour to God. It makes the receivers of the act very happy, makes God happy and therefore makes me happy.

I see people who worship idols of movie stars, sports stars, music stars, keeping up with the Jones as very empty shells of women and men. They have no real meaning or purpose in their lives and feel pity got them. They only experience shallow happiness at best.

If only they would worship the true God they would experience great joy in their lives.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yahweh (God of His people) for the most wonderful blessing. That of worshipping a marvelous God such as You. It brings the greatest fulfillment and joy to my life.I give thanks in the name above all names Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.

Know That the Lord Has

Know that the Lord has set apart him who is God like for Himself. The Lord hears when I call to Him. Psalms 4: 3 The Holy Bible The New Life Version

Yes we have been set apart from the world to serve Jesus. We are His free will servants.

God like means we live, as best as we can, imitating Christs character in our daily lives because we love Him and worship Him. We are not perfect but our heart, minds and bodies are dedicated to Jesus and in service to Him.

So, of course, we who serve Jesus because we love Him and respect Him, when we call out unto Him He not only listens but speaks back with us in return. It is a wonderful experience.

Those who are servants of the King always receive royal attention from Him when we call out to Him. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Melech Olam (Psalms 10:16 The LORD King Forever ) for the honour of being Your free will servant ( I serve You because I want to out of an act of love towards You ). Thank you that whenever this humble servant calls out to His loving Lord, not only does the Lord instantly listen but also send the appropriate help as well. Oh what a blessing it is to be a servant of Your my Love. It is in Your glorious name I give thanks. Amen

As a result, their minds became

Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. Romans 1:20-21 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

If we do not respect nor give thanks to Jehovah with our daily lives we move away from Him and toward satan. Joseph- Anthony a Son of Jehovah

That is Why I

What or whom we worship determines our behavior.

That is why I worship Jesus, because of His love for me I worship Him.

Because of this I live a righteous life.

Because of this stress is replaced with peace.

Selfishness and bitterness is replaced with love. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah
