From Glory to Glory

Not long ago, I sat in a service among a group of people who was learning to recognize a divine and extraordinary moving of the Holy Ghost. They were hesitantly responding to this deep spiritual visitation, for it was a new thing to many of them. Finally, though, they were able to make the transition, and around me, even the children were quietly weeping and worshipping our Saviour.

Throughout our day, we are bombarded with those who would make skeptics of us, for there are those who deny that God is personal and powerful, and that He, in this modern day, will intimately and distinctly visit His people. Don’t be cheated, or fooled into unbelief. Be aware of opportunities to spend special moments with Him. Accept His invitation to move into the inner chambers and there dwell for a time in intimate fellowship.

For it is through these moments that we are changed…from glory to glory, from revelation to revelation. Claim your place, grasp spiritual liberty, immerse yourself in His presence.

“Now the Lord is that spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

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.”

II Corinthians 3:17-18

    Act 17:27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

    I’m glad He is not a God that is afar off. He didn’t just create the world and then leave us to our own devices. He loves us and wants to be intimately involved in our lives. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock…” What a privilige to have a standing invitation to commune with the Lord! I pray all who come here will recognize and take advantage of the opportunities God gives us to draw nearer to Him.

    Thank you, Carol, for these fine words.

    We had one of the precious “moments” this past Sunday night. No words are sufficient to describe the overwhelming presence of God Almighty.

    To be in His manifest presence, is to be in Him in such a way as to know and feel the reality and power of He who is our Lord, God, King and yes, Savior.

    His manifest presence ruins one for anything less and stirs up such hunger for the more of Him and less of ourselves.

    It truly is a taste of his Kingdom come, even so, come Lord Jesus, come.

    Thank you for you faithful walk, life and witness.

    Blessings in Christ Jesus!

    Jana, I have often questioned myself about these special times, and what actually makes them occur. We know God is always the same. Does He make Himself known in a particularly deep way at certain times, or is the difference only in us, and our openness and spiritual receptiveness at those times?

    Whatever takes us there, those holy moments are precious and cherished in my life.

    Blessings!

    Mcalmond, I have been in such services as we are discussing when the presence of God was so strong, that people literally removed their shoes.

    Think about Heaven, then. No wonder our bodies must be changed, for surely in these bodies, we could not physically stand in His presence.

    Joy today!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and offering kind words of support.

    I have experienced what you are talking about here many times. Heaven has never been so close, never been as real now that my daughter is there. I imagine her sitting in the lap of Christ and that thought makes me smile.

  8. Shirley says:

    Good morning, Guinever, and welcome to God Things.

    Again, I salute your courage, your smiling, and your faith in God. When we know we have a loved one waiting for us in Heaven, it certainly does put an added incentive to go there.

    God’s blessings today.
