We will reflect outwardly (as reflecting in a mirror) the glory of God for the world to visibly see who will then thank and praise God above as we are transformed (transfigured) into His image. It is not our Light that they will see but the Light of God that is reflected as they see His Light reflected by us.
2 Corinthians 3:17-18 KJV (17) Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where
the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. (18) But we all, with
open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed
into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the
“From glory to glory”….the glory within us shall be revealed outwardly for the world to visibly see and give glory to God.
This mystery has been hid from ages and from generations but is now made manifest to His saints within us and who will manifest the eternal life of Jesus outwardly in this world so that the nations shall see and the believers among them shall praise God above.
Christ in you, the hope of glory which will be made manifest for all to see.
Colossians 1:25-27 KJV (25) Whereof I am made a minister, according
to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the
word of God; (26) Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and
from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: (27) To
whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this
mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
We are to die to sin always. We are "dead" and our life is hid with Christ in God. this life is currently hid from this world but it doesn't stay hidden.
Colossians 3:3-4 KJV (3) For ye are dead, and your life is hid with
Christ in God.
That life (who is Christ) shall be made manifested outwardly for the world to see. When He shall appear, we shall appear with Him in glory. The glory within manifests outwardly. Christ in us the hope of glory....the outward glory where the believing people of this world shall visibly see what it means to serve Him as we inherit His eternal life in this earth.
(4) When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also
appear with him in glory.
The “thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God”. They will see His manifest Light in us and glorify Him. All those in the darkness of this world shall see the Light.
2 Corinthians 4:15-16 KJV (15) For all things are for your sakes,
that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound
to the glory of God.
The believing people of this world shall only believe when they see His eternal life made manifest through us….like Thomas (doubting Thomas). they will praise God: "my Lord and my God".
John 20:27-30 KJV (27) Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy
finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it
into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. (28) And Thomas
answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
But blessed are those who have not seen His eternal life yet and have believed.
(29) Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou
hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have
We who FIRST trust in Christ are to be to the “praise of His glory” as the world will only believe when they visibly see His eternal life . We first trust in Christ who opens up the Scriptures to our hearing ears.
We trust in what the Lord says.. who is the Spirit (Breath) that transforms the Scriptures into its heavenly meaning. We believe in what He says.
We behold the Word of Truth.
We hear the Word of Truth….as opposed to the word of men who have been wresting the Scriptures to their own destruction.
We hear and believe and are sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise….the promise of the redemption of our mortal bodies in this earth. This is a here-and-now thing in this earth and not a after we “die and go to heaven” thing. The whole creation awaits for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Ephesians 1:12-14 KJV (12) That we should be to the praise of his
glory, who first trusted in Christ. (13) In whom ye also trusted,
after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:
in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy
Spirit of promise,
The Spirit is the earnest of our inheritance (the manifest eternal life of Jesus) and the redemption of the “purchased possession” is our mortal bodies being transformed into His glorious body in this earth where the nations of this world shall visibly see and then praise God.
They (the nations of this world) shall visibly see and praise Him…. “unto the praise of His glory”. We put away this earthly, sin humbled body in order to put on Jesus Christ who is eternal.
(14) Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of
the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Our mortal body is the “purchased possession” of the Lord as it is the temple of the Holy Spirit (the earnest of our inheritance) which is in us. We are bought with a price.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV (19) What? know ye not that your body is
the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God,
and ye are not your own? (20) For ye are bought with a price:
therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are
The “purchase” is the mortal body which is sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise (the promise of eternal life…continuing “many days”).
That which is “open” is the revealing of the eternal life of Jesus in this earthen vessel (body) for the world to see. “Baruch” means “to bless” as others shall see the “open” evidence of the eternal life of Jesus and praise God above. They will bless God instead of the cursing of His name that they are doing presently.
Jeremiah 32:13-14 KJV (13) And I charged Baruch before them, saying,
(14) Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Take these
evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is sealed, and
this evidence which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that
they may continue many days.
But we (who first trust Christ) must “hear” and believe in the Son of which the Father is well pleased in as He opens up the Scriptures to our understanding.
The Light shall shine within our hearts as we hear His voice. This is the “sign of the Son of man” speaking to us from Heaven. There will be no mistaking His voice as that Light shall dawn within our very own hearts….the “morning star” shall arise in our own hearts signifying that this is His Son speaking.
False prophets do not have this effect upon our hearts as they must rely on speaking flattery (wonders with man's admiration in mind)and outward signs (performing outward signs of supposed inward realities).
2 Peter 1:19-21 KJV (19) We have also a more sure word of prophecy;
whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth
in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your
hearts: (20) Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is
of any private interpretation. (21) For the prophecy came not in old
time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved
by the Holy Ghost.
The Light shines in the heart first....and we know this is the Son speaking.
2 Corinthians 4:6 KJV (6) For God, who commanded the light to shine
out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the
knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
His words shall be the interpreted words of the Scriptures. His words are the “holy angels”…the holy messages of God…..the true and faithful sayings of God.
He interprets the Scriptures. It is no coincidence that Moses and Elijah...the Law and the Prophets... “talked with Him” on the mountain in the Transfiguration as He interprets them...changes them into their heavenly interpretation.
They spoke of His “decease”…that is, exit or exodus…as His eternal life is to be made manifest in this world which had been suppressed by false prophets and the wresting of the Scriptures to their own mortal destruction from this earth. They have no understanding of the Scriptures and they perish from this world in their misunderstanding
Luke 9:26-32 KJV (26) For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my
words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in
his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels. (27) But
I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not
taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God. (28) And it came to
pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John
and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. (29) And as he
prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment
was white and glistering. (30) And, behold, there talked with him two
men, which were Moses and Elias: (31) Who appeared in glory, and
spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
We who have been “heavy with sleep” are to awake to His righteousness and perceive His glory.
(32) But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and
when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood
We must awake to righteousness to behold His glory and “put on” incorruption”. We must put on Jesus Christ who is incorruptible and immortal so that death is swallowed up in victory. We must put on the heavenly Man….Jesus Christ our Lord…so that we may inherit His eternal life in this earth for the world to see.
Flesh-and-blood acting men shall not inherit the kingdom of God which is everlasting and not a dying kingdom. they will hear and not believe as they will not put on Jesus Christ who is incorruptible and immortal at the transformation of the Scriptures into the faithful and true Sayings of God.
1 Corinthians 15:53-55 KJV (53) For this corruptible must put on
incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. (54) So when
this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall
have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that
is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. (55) O death, where is
thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
We have this treasure within our earthen vessels…the mortal body. We must keep His “daily” sacrifice (always dying to sin)…always bearing about in this body the dying of the Lord Jesus…so that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest (outwardly shining)in our body.
2 Corinthians 4:10-11 KJV (10) Always bearing about in the body the
dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made
manifest in our body. (11) For we which live are alway delivered unto
death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made
manifest in our mortal flesh.
The good news of the kingdom of God that it is an EVERLASTING kingdom and not a dying one as preached by those who say we must “die and go to heaven”. They preach their covenant with death and their agreement with the grave instead. The good news of Christ has been hidden from them. The Light of the glorious good news of Christ who is the image of God does not enlighten them as they only serve for their own belly...the "god" of this world.
We shall enter in to that everlasting kingdom in this earth (under the whole heaven) if we hear and believe. We shall “continue many days” (having eternal life) to see that. We shall live to see all dominions of this earth serving and obeying Him.
Daniel 7:27 KJV (27) And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness
of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of
the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
