The Glory of Jesus Christ
The only true God is an eternal mystery and revelation.
He is glorious in splendor and beautiful beyond description.
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.
Humans were born to fellowship with Him.
What is He like?
He is the most wonderful, most beautiful Person in the universe.
He is indescribable, incomprehensible, unfathomable.
He is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent.
He is life, love, eternity.
He is 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.

The Glory of God
Everything about the only true God is an eternal revelation.
He is so wonderful and beautiful, He is beyond words.
When Jesus spoke about treasure hidden in a field, He was speaking about God Himself: the presence of God, the presence of Jesus, the Holy Spirit.
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.
His presence and glory is everywhere on the earth.
The heavens declare His glory. The earth reveals and is full of 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.
Heaven is a planet. The first two heavens encircle the earth. It is likely that the third heaven, God’s home, also encircles the entire second heaven.
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. At this time, there are likely 30-40 billion saints in heaven. There are innumerable angels in heaven.
Angels are made from God’s glory. They are spirit beings.
There are five divisions of God’s heavenly army. The largest class in number is likely the ministering angels. They are about eight to ten feet tall and have bodies like humans (head, body, arms, legs, etc.). They minister to the saints. Every child has angels who always see the face of Jesus’ Father (Matthew 18:10).
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.”
Living things are alive because of God’s power and glory. Humans are God’s masterpiece, made in His image. Every human soul is eternal and priceless, worth more than the world and everything in it, multiplied times infinity. Every person will spend eternity in either heaven or hell.
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, the anointing, 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” three times in the Gospel of John.
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.
Amen! Thank you Jesus!
