    The Glory of the Lord is the Lord Himself: the Father, Jesus Christ & the Holy Spirit

    The Glory of the Lord is the Lord Himself: the Father, Jesus Christ & the Holy Spirit

    He is Son of God and . . . the Lord God Almighty (Matthew 3:17, John 8:58).

    God has given His Son to the world, that man can receive eternal life.

    Those who believe in Jesus know God.

    They have eternal life, which is knowing the only true God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent (John 17:3).

    If they continue on with Jesus, they will live forever.

    Outside of Jesus, there is nothing.

    Apart from Jesus, someone can do nothing (John 15:5).

    Without Jesus, someone has nothing.

    Without Jesus, a person is spiritually dead (John 6:53).

    If a person dies without Jesus Christ, they go to eternal death.

    Eternal life continues forever in heaven, a place of absolute glory.

    Heaven is God’s home, full of the glorious splendor of His majesty and infinitely more (John 14:2).

    Those who know Jesus as Lord have the divine nature and life of God. They have the supernatural, abundant, zoe life. They have the Almighty God living in and through them – and all around them.

    Those who know Jesus can accomplish things that will last forever. They can store up treasures in heaven (Matthew 6:20). They can do even greater things than Jesus did (John 14:12).



    Eternal death continues forever in hell, the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41).

    Those who do not know Jesus have nothing. Even if they gain the whole world, they possess nothing.

    Those who do not know Jesus can do nothing. Even if they conquer the whole world, they have accomplished nothing.

    The Name of Jesus

    The Name of Jesus

    The only true God is an eternal mystery. He is so glorious, so wonderful, so powerful – and infinitely, eternally more – He is beyond human comprehension and words.

    Knowing Him is an eternal revelation. Those who find Him and make it to heaven will be in awe of Him, forever.

    He is indescribable, incomprehensible, unfathomable . . . omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent . . . life, love, eternity . . . holy . . . and infinitely more.

    Yet, He has revealed Himself. He is no longer a mystery. He is available. He is a present reality.

    The only true God, the infinite, eternal mystery, can be summed up in one word, one name, one Person: Jesus.

    His Glory; The Answer; Man was Born to Fellowship with God; Jesus is Alive!

    His Glory; The Answer; Man was Born to Fellowship with God; Jesus is Alive!

    Everything about the only true God is an eternal revelation.

    He is so wonderful and beautiful, human words cannot express Him and His glory.

    He has revealed Himself as the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

    His glory fills the universe. The universe exists in Him. He holds it all together through the greatness of His power.

    The heavens declare His glory. The earth reveals His glory. Humans can know His glory.

    The third heaven, His home, is made from His glory. It is filled and permeated with the presence of Jesus, the glory of God.

    Everyone who has been to heaven says the same thing: it is beyond description and words. Everything is glorious, wonderful, and perfect.

    Heaven is filled with the glorious splendor of His majesty. Saints will spend eternity in fellowship with God, what they were born to do.

    Billions of saints and angels will live forever in God’s home.

    Angels are made from God’s glory. They are spirit beings. They are innumerable.

    All angels are so glorious they really cannot be described. Some are incredibly tall, such as those described in the Book of Revelation. One angel’s glory illuminated the entire earth.

    Angels are eternal. Therefore, there had to be a place for the enemy and his angels, all fallen, for eternity. God withdrew Himself from that place, which is why hell is such a horrible place, with nothing good.

    The wonderful things God gives to all humans are not in hell. Examples are: love, faith, hope, joy, peace, happiness, family, friends, health, light, food, water and more.

    The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. He created it. He sustains it. Everything in the natural world reveals God’s divine nature and eternal spiritual truth. He made man the king of the earth, which is an extension of the third heaven.

    Believe it or not, the natural world is made from God’s glory. It is in a fallen state, due to the fall of the enemy and of man. But everything natural still reveals God’s glory.

    The sun reveals the trinity. The sun, the light and the life it gives reveal the Father, Jesus Christ, the light of the world, and the Holy Spirit. Whoever receives Him will possess what Jesus called “the light of life.”

    Every human soul is eternal and priceless, worth more than the world and everything in it.

    All living things began as a seed. Every seed must die to produce life. Jesus revealed that we must “die,” that is, lose our old nature, to find eternal life. This truth is one of Jesus’ main teachings.

    When someone is saved, they have the glory of God within their spirit person, the real them.

    They are in Him, and Jesus is in them. If they continue on with Jesus, they will live forever in glory. They will never die.

    A saint begins to know His glory when they are born of water and the Spirit, the second of the four phases of knowing Him.

    The real battle in the universe is God against the enemy. Jesus called him “the ruler/prince of this world.”

    An absolute tragedy is that anyone who is not saved is actually in the enemy’s kingdom. If a person chooses self instead of God, they will spend eternity in the lake of fire prepared for the devil and his angels (Matthew 25:41).

    The saints, those written in the Lamb’s book of life, who know Jesus as Lord and Savior, will spend eternity in glory.

    His Glory; Jesus is Lord and God; the 7 Stations of the Tabernacle; Jesus is Alive!

    Man was born to fellowship with God.

    The supreme purpose of man is to know Him.

    Someone may ask, what is God like? What is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit like?

    He is the most wonderful, most beautiful Person in the universe.

    The only true God is an eternal mystery and revelation.

    He has revealed Himself as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    He is so glorious, so wonderful, so powerful – and infinitely, eternally more – He is beyond human comprehension and words.

    Those who find Him and make it to heaven will be in awe of Him, forever.

    He is indescribable, incomprehensible, unfathomable . . . omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent . . . life, love, eternity . . . holy . . . and infinitely more.

    Yet, He has revealed Himself.

    He is no longer a mystery.

    He is available.

    He is a present reality.

    The Glory; the Two Sides; the Celebration; Jesus is Alive!

    The Glory; the Two Sides; the Celebration; Jesus is Alive!

    “Today if you hear His voice . . .” (Psalm 96:8).



    Every word in this portion of Scripture reveals eternal, unfathomable, unspeakable revelation.



    Today



    God is in the “now.” He is the great I AM. “Today” reveals God’s great love and mercy. If a person repents, man can always come to Him and find forgiveness and newness.



    (Today) If



    “If” reveals revelations and mysteries beyond comprehension, such as:



    1. God is offering Himself . . . including speaking. It is up to a person how they respond and/or receive. He is always offering Himself, even for eternity.

    2. God has created man into His own image and likeness. God gave man choice and infinitely more.

    3. Since man is the image of God, man chooses God or self. Even a believer chooses every day between God and self (Joshua 24:16). Man chooses to hear God or not.



    (Today if) You



    God offers Himself to every person on earth.

    He has justified Himself to mankind, to every person in an infinite number of ways. He has offered Himself to a person for an infinite number of moments.



    (Today if you) Hear



    We can hear God’s voice with our spirit person.

    He is always speaking, in many ways.

    It is up to a person whether they hear Him or not.



    (Today if you hear) His



    The greatest and highest privilege for man is to know God.

    It is an eternal mystery that God would allow a person to hear His voice . . . to have a personal relationship with Him . . . to be His child . . . to live forever with Him.



    (Today if you hear His) Voice



    God speaks . . . Jesus speaks . . . and infinitely more.

    “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me” (John 10:27).

    Some of the many glorious things Jesus does in His relationship with man are below.



    God believes in you
