God's Glory Illuminates
When you enter the court and gate of the almighty God with thanks and praises, you will experience a transformation into the realm of His glory. Most especially, nobody can enter into God's glory without subscribing to some laws that can make it become a reality. That is why the alter of thanksgiving and praise is a sustainable sacrifice to achieving the dynamics of His glorious presence.
The glory of God proves God's manifested presence, you may want to ask me how and I will tell you the reason, from the 23rd verses of the book of Revelation chapter 21 that we read, we were made to understand as it says, "The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The lamb is its light". Can you imagine when a city have no need of sun or moon to shine in it but the glory of God has been a source of light that radiate and illuminated the whole city, that shows the manifested presence of God.
Even when some places are dark, immediately the Lamb of the Lord lies upon the place, the place that was dark will begin to shine light and also if a place is empty, when the Lamb of the Lord enters the place, the place that was empty will begin to declare the fullness of glory. I will like to say this; it takes the communion of spirit to experience the illumination of God's glory. You need to understand that the glory of God carries dimension of God's divine power and anyone that wishes to walk in His way will have to show his/her thirst and hunger of intimacy for the Holy Ghost.
The Psalmist says, "My soul thirsts for you; my flesh longs for you". Why is Prophet David saying this? It is because of his hunger for God's power and His glory as written in Psalm 63:2. You and I can also walk our ways to seeing and experiencing God's glory, it will only require our hunger and thirst to know more of Him.
There is an interesting song that says, "O, Lord I want to see your glory, I want to offer sacrifices of praise". So it is very important we know that the hunger to know more of him is the first important virtue and after which, you can now get up and decide to start building your relationship with Him. Let God know you by name, I know you might be thinking that it is not possible but am telling you that it is very possible. He said in His word that I am the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob so do not be deceived, it depends on the level of your walk with Him and the pattern of the intimacy you subscribe to that will guarantee you the glory of God. I pray God will help us in Jesus name.
