If we are ever to walk in Glory’s Light, we must embrace heaven’s flame and allow the refining fire to burn away all the dross of the flesh. We must embrace “the Lord of glory” (James 2:1) and let Glory’s Light make us partakers “of the glory that shall be revealed” (1 Peter 5:1) “which is Christ in you”. The promise of God is that the glory shall be revealed in us. Can you grasp this great truth? It is “the riches of the glory,” the mystery among us, “the hope of glory”(Colossians 1:27).
The Lord is going to have “Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing.” This will be a Church “holy and without blemish” (Ephesians 5:27). A people who “walk worthy of God, Who hath called (us) unto His kingdom and glory” (1 The. 2:12).
He will bring “many sons unto glory” (Heb.2:10) and give them “the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.” He will cause the eyes of our understanding to be enlightened that we “may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints” (Ephesians 1:17-18).
To those who seek after Him there will be a “live coal . . . taken with the tongs from off the altar” and it will be laid upon their mouth. Such a one will willingly cry out, “Here am I; send me” (Isaiah 6:6-8).
This is the hour for those who are His to be revealed in glory. He has “called us to glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3) and filled us with the treasure of the kingdom: “that the excellency of the power” be seen to “be of God, and not of us” (2 Corinthians 4:7). He will keep is own “from falling” and present them “faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy” (Jude 1:24).
Beloved, if “the earth was lightened” with the glory of an angel (Rev.18:1), how much more should it be lightened by the children of God in whom is Glory’s Light. After all, we are his “kings and priests” (Rev.1:6).
When we walk in the light of it, the kings of the earth will bring their glory and honour into it. (Rev. 21:24) – Selah
