Matter’s of the Heart: Pt. 3 Heart of Glory

June 24, 2020 / Exodus 33:18 Exodus 33:12-18

 

12 And Moses said unto the Lord, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight.13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.15 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.17 And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.

God’s plan to see his glory fill the whole earth is to use the church to be his “Glory carriers.”

Colossians 1:25-29

The glory of God isn’t just a feeling, an event or an Old Testament experience—it’s a spiritual tsunami of everything contained in the character of God. The word glory is literally translated “heavy weight,” meaning the heaviest, biggest, grandest thing about someone.

  1. Look for the Glory
    1. If we are not expecting it we probably won’t see it
      1. Exodus 24:17 (KJV) says, “The sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount.”
      2. “His brightness was as the light; he had horns [or shafts] coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power” (Habakkuk 3:4, KJV).
    2. Just like anything in the kingdom of God, it takes faith to see a manifestation. The glory of God is a visible power. 
      1. This visible power is also known as Shekinah glory, which is the Hebrew name given to the presence of God dwelling on the earth.
      2. The same glory that raised Jesus from the dead was manifested as fire by night and a cloud by day in the wilderness (Exodus 13:21)
      3. I want to move your people

  1. Pray for the Glory
    1. “For I consider the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” –Romans 8:18, NKJV
    2. Steps to Pray for His Glory
      1. Pray that the glory will be revealed to you and in you.
      2. Must Believe When We Pray
      3. Pray that you will understand the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.

  1. I want to know your way that I may get closer to you

  • Prepare for the Glory
    1. “…the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” –Romans 5:5, NKJV
    2. I’ve Been Covered for This Glory

  1. Walk in the Glory`
    1. “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” –2 Corinthians 3:18, NKJV

 

  1. The glory of God looks for a dwelling place. The original house for the glory of God was the tabernacle. But under the New Covenant, the Holy Spirit builds a temple in every believer. 1 Corinthians 3:16 says, “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” (NKJV).  We are God’s house—His temple. Only, this temple is no longer in a fixed location. This house can walk and talk and preach the gospel!
