Recognizing Glory

I believe God wants to bring a fresh revelation of peace to the World in which we live. And it would make sense to me for the Holy Spirit to release such an outpouring of His Glory that all could see the goodness of the Lord in these days of desperation.

But if He did this, would we recognize it? As I recall it was Jesus who asked the question… “will I find faith in the earth?”  (Lk. 18:8)

A Fresh Vision of the Lamb of God: (Jn. 1:14)

No question, in order to release revival in any part of the world, there must be a fresh vision of Jesus. John the Baptist prepared the path for the Lamb of God to come into view for the nation of Israel (Jn. 1:6-10). The prophet Isaiah tells us that John needed to… “make straight in the desert, a highway for our God” (Isa. 40:3-5).

“Make straight in the desert, a highway for our God!”

The valleys would need to be exalted and the mountains made low. The crooked places need to be made straight and the rough places made smooth. And why? “For the Glory of the Lord to be revealed” in such a way that everyone would see it! Today… this is our mandate!

“For the Glory of the Lord to be Revealed!”

Kingdom People are designed to carry the Glory of God and create shifts in the atmosphere. John was a voice crying in the wilderness saying… “prepare your hearts, repent of your ways; for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand”. The Kingdom is at your finger tips and all you have to do is believe to receive it.

The Sign of His Glory:

John was not looking for just any man when he looked for Jesus. He was looking for the One in whom God had spoken previously in the secret place of John’s heart. The Lamb of God would be recognized by the fact that at His baptism the Spirit would come like a dove and land upon Him and stay. God was asking John to notice peace coming into the world by way of the Glory of God. The Lamb of God would serve as an entry point for the “dove” to land… and for God’s Glory – once lost - to be recognized again.

“…to give the light of the knowledge of the Glory of God in the face of Jesus.” (2 Cor. 4:6)
