The Glory of His Coming!

The Blessed Hope

Bible Prophecy is fast fulfilling.

Luke 21:11

The Bible

The Bible is one consistent narrative, from beginning of the Old Testament to the end of the New Testament; a single epic saga spanning some 4000 years of world history, written over a period of about 1500 years, across three major languages, across multiple nations, by over 40 authors, from all walks of life – and without one discordant note between them.

Some 2000 prophecies are contained within, roughly 1800 have been fulfilled and verified by history. Less than 200 remain…

Daniel 2 Prophecy is an example of history validating the Bible account.

Daniel 2:24-45

Statue Material Kingdom Time Period
Head of Gold 605 BC - 539 BC
Chest & Arms of Siver 539 BC - 331 BC
Belly & Thighs of Bronze 331 BC - 168 BC
Legs of Iron 168 BC - 476 AD
Feet of Iron & Clay 476 BC to Present

Whats next is the coming of a Kingdom that shall never be destroyed, never be conquered by another.

God is still on the throne, and He cares for You!

What is Glory? What do we think?

  • Is it in success?
  • Is it in sport stars, actors or celebrities?
  • Is it in doing a job well done?

What is God's Glory

When Moses asked the Lord to show Him His glory, the Lord responded:

Exodus 33:19-23

Exodus 33:13-14

“13 Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now , that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is Your people.”

14 And He said, “ will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Outward Manifestation of God's Glory

Exodus 24:16-17

Inward Manifestation of God's Glory

Exodus 34:6-7

Here we see that God associates His glory with:

  • His
  • His
  • His
  • His and as He waits for us
  • His
  • Truthfulness
  • His
  • His
  • And His

His Glory speaks to own image, express person - the very character of God. is also an inner glory.

When the same Savior came into the world the first time, He did not come garbed in radiant glory; it was not outwardly apparent in His appearance. His was a quiet glory, the glory of the inward parts and of the heart… it was a glory in humility.

Coming in humility was the only way

His Goodness Passed Before Us

  • He the name of the Lord Luke 4:14-21
  • He showed us how to out. How to . John 5:1-20
  • He helped the blind to . John 9:1-40
  • He comforted and . Mark 5:21-43
  • He raised the back to life. John 11:17-40
  • And he promised to draw all men unto me. John 12:32

His Suffering For Us

  • Had bled in the garden purely from the weight of terror
  • Had been freshly betrayed by one of His own. Abandoned by dear friends…
  • Had suffered the rejection of Israel who should have received Him.
  • Was mocked and scourged, and unjustly tried 7 times.
  • Had freshly experienced the agony of the cross and the crushing weight of sin for all time.
  • And had succumbed to the excruciating separation from God the Father… (And not to make some political point of martyrdom, but for you. For me. That we might be legally redeemed and freely justified before God)

I AM Coming Back!

"And if I go and prepare a place for , I will come again and receive to Myself; that where I am, there may be also.” John 14:3

“29 And now I have you it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might .” John 14:29

Be Encouraged! 😃

Let us compare the things and cares of this present earth with the beautiful things of Christ’s glory:

This world and its glories is passing away; even now the things of earth grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace. All things that have for so long held captive an ailing humanity shall be no more. Temporary satisfactions shall yield themselves up, swallowed by the glory and joyous majesty of abundant life throughout ceaseless ages for Christ’s surrendered and redeemed.

“And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but who does the of God abides .” 1 John 2:17

Revelation 21: 22-26

4 And God will wipe away every from their eyes; there shall be no more , nor sorrow, nor . There shall be no more , for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:3,4

1 Corinthians 13:12

He Loves you & He Saved You!

John 3:16

1 Corinthians 15:51-55

Matthew 11:28

The lover of our own souls who removed from the throne, set down His crown, gave up glory we can scarcely imagine, took on the semblance of unglorified flesh, lived a life of scorned humiliation, a man of sorows rejected, and came to die on a rugged Roman cross upon this rebel planet. For us all – even those who hated Him. He paid a King’s ransom in the shedding of His own precious blood…. He did it so that many sons and daughters might be brought to glory. He did so even for this wretched man… He would have done it even just for one of us.

Such is the glory of His character, and of His nature; the glory of His selfless heart. It is a glory less often contemplated as we try to lay hold of what His glory is. Surely His character is as radiant and arrayed in splendour inwardly as He is now outwardly glorious.
