GLORY OF GOD
(The Physical Light of God)
In the beginning:-
And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. This Light was Shekinah – Father, Mother, Son and Daughter from heaven.
2 Corinthians 4:6For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory(light) of God in the face of Christ.
Jesus walked with the physical presence which is Light.
1 John 1
Walking in the light
5This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[b] sin.
8If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.
However, if we walk in God's light as Jesus does, we do indeed have perfect partnership with God and with each other and the blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin. We have fellowship with each other because we are each individually full of light and belong to the light.
22"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. 23But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
I Thessalonians 5:5.
5You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
Since God is light and is also love, when we are full of light we manifest God's love, the source of our fellowship.
8For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.9(for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10and find out what pleases the Lord.
I John 2:8-11
8Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.
9Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness.
10Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him[a] to make him stumble. 11But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him.
The entry of sin into the world made the darkness into an evil spiritual force. Man learned to know evil and fear God's light, and the whole creation was subjected to futility.
Moreover, because God had given Adam dominion over the earth, when Adam departed into darkness, he took the earth with him, making the whole creation subject to futility and appointing Satan as the god of this age by his obedience to Satan's words. Adam chose darkness instead of Light.
28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
17 To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about whichI commanded you, 'You must not eat of it,'" Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field.
19The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. 20For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21that[a] the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.
22We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.
2 Corinthians 4:3-4
3And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel (good news) of the glory (Light) of Christ, who is the image of God.
3And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. 4The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory (Light) of Christ, who is the image of God.
The power of darkness is not like the power of light. God is the light. Darkness is an impersonal force, the rejection of God and the absence of God. The devil is in the darkness, but is not the darkness, and his power is dependent on men believing a lie.
However, the power of darkness is not like the power of light.
Light is a person, the physical presence of Jehovah God. Darkness is impersonal, the rejection of the light. The devil is not darkness in the same way that God is light; instead, while he claims usurped authority in the realm of darkness, he is only one of many spirits there each of which is in rebellion against authority
While the devil maintains a chain of command in his kingdom of darkness, his power depends entirely upon his ability to deceive those who recognize his authority into continuing to do as he suggests .
Because the premise of his kingdom is that every member of it may be his own god, Satan has no true subordinates. While none of the demons in his employ have the option of returning to God, the demons alone are incapable of accomplishing anything on earth.
Instead, to accomplish anything, the devil must have men and women who will do his will, and every human who has ever lived has had the capacity to see and return to the light if he would but open his eyes .
Light is a living force, the light of life, but darkness is dead, the shadow of death.
Darkness also means ignorance.
11Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
16 Give glory to Jehovah your God, before he cause darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and, while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.
78because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven79to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace."
12The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
3 Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me;
let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.
I John 1:5-7
Walking in the light
5This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[a] sin.
Light grows and produces living fruit - goodness, righteousness and truth. Ephesians 5:8-10. Darkness produces only dead, unfruitful works. Romans 13:12; Ephesians 5:11. Light is truth and life as darkness is the lie, death, and deception. Psalm 43:3; I John 1:5-7.
The judgment is that men choose darkness(meaning ignorance and Satan) and God ultimately gives them what they seek - hell, the outer darkness, a place where he is totally inactive. God does not judicially sentence anyone to hell; we make this decision ourselves because of our disobedience and rebellious nature.
The Glory of GOD in the following scriptures means The Physical Light, the Physical presence of God. And the Light of God the manifested presence of the glory (Light) will return to the earth soon.
I John 1:5
GOD is Light
Just as love defines God's character and spirit his substance, even so light defines his activity:
The heavens declare the (light)glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork.
But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the(light) glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God
1 Cor 11:7
For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image(spiritual) and(Light)glory of God
2 Cor 4:6
For it is God who commanded light to shine out of darkness who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the (Light) glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.(The Physical Light of God shone from the face of his Son Jesus Christ of Nazareth)
The temple was filled with smoke from the (Light) glory of God and from His power ,and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
having the ( Light )glory of God. And her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.
And the city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory(Light) of God illuminated it, and the Lamb is its light.
Enter into the rock, and hide in the dust, from the terror of the LORD and the glory(Light) of His majesty
They shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, from the terrorof the LORD and the glory(Light) of His majesty, when He arises to shake the earth mightily(End of Satan’s Kingdom)
to go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the crags of the rugged rocks, from the terror of the LORD and the glory(Light) of His majesty, when He arises to shake the earth mightily.
7 and in the morning you will see the glory(Light) of the LORD , because he has heard your grumbling against him. Who are we,that you should grumble against us?"
Now it came to pass, as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory(Light) of the LORD appeared in the cloud.
Now the glory(Light) of the LORD rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days.
The sight of the glory (Light) of the LORD was like a consuming fire(Light) on the top of the mountain in the eyes of the children of Israel.
Exod 40:34 Then the cloud covered the tabernacle of meeting, and the glory(Light) of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
Exod 40:35 And Moses was not able to enter the tabernacle of meeting, because the cloud rested above it, and the glory(Light) of the LORD filled the tabernacle
Then Moses said, “This is the thing which the LORD commanded you to do, and the glory(Light) of the LORD will appear to you.
Lev 9:23 Then the glory(Light) of the LORD appeared to all the people.
Num 14:10 Now the glory(Light) of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of meeting before all the children of Israel.
Num 14:21 but truly, as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the (Light) glory of the LORD . (Physical Light of GOD coming Soon to the earth ).
Num 16:19 Then the glory (Light) of the LORD appeared to all the congregation.
Num 16:42 and suddenly the cloud covered it, and the glory(Light) of the LORD appeared.
John 12 46 I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
47"As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it.48There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day. 49For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. 50I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say."
This is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the light, and doesn’t come to the light, lest his works would be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his works may be revealed, that they have been done in God.
God's light and truth guide his own.
3 Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.
Psalm 119:105 & 130 - 105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
130 The unfolding of your words gives light;it gives understanding to the simple.
23 For these commands are a lamp, this teaching is a light, and the corrections ofdiscipline are the way to life,
Yet, the entry of God's light is gradual: the way of the righteous is like the first gleam ofdawn, shining ever brighter until the full light of day.
18 The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn(light”), shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
When we open our eyes to the light, a process begins which ultimately banishes the darkness.
By contrast, God told Job (a righteous man) that light is withheld from the wicked.
15 The wicked are denied their light, and their upraised arm is broken.
It is note worthy, however, that God did not say that he withholds light from the wicked.
No, today God always says "come out ... be free" to those captive in darkness.
9 to say to the captives, 'Come out,' and to those in darkness, 'Be free!' "They will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19
18All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
Rather, as previously stated, the wicked withhold light from themselves. The way of the wicked, the path they follow, is deep darkness, darkness in which they stumble.
19 But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.
9Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours of daylight? A man who walks by day will not stumble, for he sees by this world's light. 10It is when he walks by night that he stumbles, for he has no light."
Though the wicked choose darkness, God remains light. He gives light forever to those whose eyes are open. The Light of God is love and truth.
May love, light and wisdom bring peace to the Earth and the hearts of humanity,bringing forth the Era of Love, Peace, Joy and Unity – “The New Heaven and the New Earth – The Kingdom of Light and Love.The Eternal Kingdom of Zion.
3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds,and his righteousness endures forever.
At The End :-
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory(physical Light) of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
Nevertheless, as surely as I live and as surely as the glory(Light) of the LORD fills the whole earth,
Isaiah 60 (Referring to The Daughter of Zion)
1“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory(light) of the Lord rises upon you. 2See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory(light) appears over you. 3Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn(light).
Psalm 83 (King James Version)
18That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.
