SPEAKING TO BRING HIS GLORY INTO EXISTENCE



It is time to manifest the glory of God. It’s time for the glory of the Lord to be seen

Christ is going to present the Church to Himself.   Jesus is the Bridegroom, and the Church is the Bride (2 Corinthians 11:2).
At a future date, the Church is going to be presented to the Bridegroom; and we will be chaste, not a filthy, half-in-bed-with-the-world Church (2 Corinthians 4:14). 
 We will have progressed from glory to glory until there’s only one more step, and that’s into heaven. \ You have been reconciled to God, so you can be presented holy, unblamable and unreprovable in His sight (Colossians 1:21-22).
 You will be presented faultless before the presence of His glory (Jude 24).
 We will stand before the presence of God’s glory for eternity, because of what He has done for us. Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection make us faultless, so we can stand before His glory.

The glory of God is very powerful.
 Ananias and Sapphira were with the disciples; they were not in the world sinning, yet they chose to lie about their offering. They said they brought the total sale price of their property. The glory of God was so strong, it burst out and attacked the lie they told, and they died (Acts 5:1-10).
  King David was bringing the Ark of the Covenant back to Jerusalem. A man reached back to steady the Ark on the cart, and he died. He touched the glory of God, and it judged him (2 Samuel 6:3-8).

Believers are members of Jesus’ flesh and bones.
  This is a mystery concerning the Head (Jesus) and the Body (Church) (Ephesians 5:32).
 When we lay our hands on people, it’s the same as Jesus laying hands on them, because we are His Body.
 God has a Bride on the earth that is supposed to be separated from the world, not a harlot bride.
 We going to be separated unto Him more and more. The light of His glory and grace is even going to show on our faces (2 Corinthians 3:18). Additional scriptures: Matthew 24; 1 Thessalonians 5:9; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Revelation 5:9


THE TANGIBLE GLORY OF GOD
The glory of God can be seen. The ceremony of God crowning man with glory was not private, it was public. 

 When the glory appeared in the Old Testament, it could be seen. It was not a mist; it was a cloud and fire.
 The glory appeared in the upper room on the Day of Pentecost, and sat on the head of each person there (Acts 2:1-4).
 When Stephen was being stoned, he looked up and saw the glory of God (Acts 7:55).

God’s plan beginning with Creation.
 At Creation, there was a large space of time between Genesis 1:1 and 1:2. The earth became void, empty and a dark place.
 Then, God brought Himself into the earth (Genesis 1:1-3).
 An angel, who was there at Creation, tells about the beginning of man (Psalm 8:3-6).  Man was made a little lower than God. In Hebrew, Elohim means “God,” not angels.  Heaven was amazed at the place of honor and authority God gave man! 
 The angels had to approach God. But God went down and visited man.  The angels knew the hierarchy of authority—God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost, then archangels, next other angels and creatures. 
Now, God has put someone, man, between Himself and the angels. o God made the man have dominion over what He created. 

 The ceremony of God giving man authority on the earth was not private; it was public.
  God made man in His own image, gave him dominion over the earth, and crowned man with His glory.
 The man could have perfect communion with God, because he was crowned with God’s glory.
 Satan deceived the man and woman; they disobeyed God and lost His glory.

IV. In preparation for teaching a class on God’s plan, Billye Brim had a vision.  In the vision, she saw man lose his standing in the glory of God and become attached to Satan. It was a disaster for mankind.  o
CAUSES AND DEPARTURE OF GOD’S GLORY IN THE TEMPLE
When man disobeyed God and fell from glory, God was separated from His man. God had a plan that He put in His WORD as mysteries
Ezekiel gave the account of when God’s glory left the Temple.   The throne of God came to Jerusalem to escort the glory to heaven (Ezekiel 1).  o This move happened in stages. o The glory moved from the Holy of Holies to the courts, then moved above the city of Jerusalem, then moved over from Mount Moriah to above the Mount of Olives, and finally ascended to heaven. o Sadly, the people didn’t know if they would ever have contact with God again.  After 70 years of captivity, the children of Israel came back and rebuilt Jerusalem and the Temple, but the glory of God did not return to the new Temple.
The young rejoiced to have a place to worship God, but those who remembered the original Temple were sad because the new Temple was not as glorious and did not have God’s glory.  Haggai comforted them and said there was a time coming that the glory would return to the Temple in the form of the Messiah (Haggai 2:7-9).  Jesus, as the only begotten of the Father, had a greater glory than the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire.

When Jesus came to the earth, He exhibited the glory of God (John 1:1-4, 14).  At the wedding at Cana, Jesus did a miracle and manifested His glory. His disciples believed in Him (John 2:11).  The glory of God is manifested in resurrection. o Jesus exhibited the glory in the power of resurrection by raising Lazarus from the dead (John 11:39-44). o Jesus told Martha that if she would believe she would see the glory of God     (John 11:40). o Jesus was raised from the dead by the glory of God (Romans 6:4). o The Spirit of God raised Jesus from the dead, and that same Spirit will make you well and alive (Romans 8:11).  Several times in the Gospels several times, Jesus said, “My hour has not yet come” (John 2:4).   In the real Lord’s Prayer, Jesus said now His hour had come (John 17:1, 4-5).  Jesus prays for us that we may all be in unity, so that the world may know we are one with God and manifesting the glory as the sons of God (John 17:20-23).

IV. Jesus is the Head, and we are the Body of Christ on the earth (Ephesians 5:30).  We now have a certain glory.  There is a further glorification that is coming to the Church that we will get by degrees or steps.  We are growing from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18). Additional scriptures: Luke 12:48; Ezekiel 3:12, 22, 10:4, 18-22, 11:22-23;                                1 Corinthians 2:8

God had given dominion to man. Satan taunted God by saying, “What are You going to do now?”  Satan thought he had won.   Be advised: Satan always attacks God’s Word. 
II. God has a plan that He put in His WORD as mysteries.  We can know the mysteries of God by praying in tongues, or praying mysteries. o When you pray in tongues, your mind doesn’t know what is being said, but your spirit does know (1 Corinthians 14:2, 14-15).   God works in response to man’s requests. Man has authority on the earth. We pray and God can legally send that plan into the earth.  The English word mystery means “a sacred secret.”  When you pray the plans of God, He can get those plans into the earth, because God does things in response to man (who has dominion on the earth) asking Him.  The Bible speaks of several divine secrets, or mysteries. 1. The mystery of Israel (Romans 11:25-27). 2. The mystery of iniquity (2 Thessalonians 2:3-8).  The commission of the Church is to hold back the Antichrist. 3. The mystery of the Church.  The ekklesia means “a called-out assembly.”
III. The mystery of the Church, or the Body of Christ, is revealed through the writings of Apostle Paul.  It took at least 17 years for Paul to get the full revelation of this mystery        (Galatians 1:1-2:2).  If you’re going to understand the Church you’re going to have to get it from Paul’s revelation and from the letters to the Church.  Paul preached the Crucifixion and Resurrection, and demonstrated the power of God through miracles, signs and wonders (1 Corinthians 2:1-8). o Paul also taught even more revelation to those who became mature in Christ.  The mystery of the Church is that we are going to be lifted back up into the presence of His glory.  The purpose of being in the presence of God is that we may have His glory.  Jesus was raised from the dead, and raised back into glory so that we can be raised up with Him (Ephesians 2:5-6). Additional scriptures:  Genesis 1:28, 3:1; Matthew 6:10

We'll not handover the church to rascals - Pastor Kumuyi

Vanguard News Nigeria


….charges members on obedience to leadership



THE General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, Saturday, maintained that the church will not be handed over to ‘rascals’ who are not portraying the image of Christ in their character.
Kumuyi

Kumuyi made the declaration via a satellite broadcast from headquarters of the church in Lagos, while teaching on the topic, ‘Fear Not: The Promise Is Still Good’ during the Faith Clinic session at the ongoing Deeper Life National December Retreat, holding at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC), which started on Friday, December 21 and ends December 25.

He said the church will not condone any form of rascality and rebellion because the word of God never encourages that and is a strange behaviour capable of taking one to hell fire.

He said: “We are not going to hand the church over to rascals, over to rebellious people that want to scatter everything that is good that the Lord is doing. If you …
