More Than a Goose Bump 19 February Glory and honour are in his [Gods] presence; strength and gladness are in his place.
The signs of the times are all around us. Its time for the outpouring of the glory of God. Both in the natural and in the spirit realm, you can sense the pulse beat of it growing more and more rapid. Things are happening. Prophecies are being fulfilled. We are seeing events the prophets of old longed to see. We need to get our spiritual antennas up. We need to wake up and expect the glory of God! When I say expect the glory of God, most Christians will nod their heads and say, Yes, amen, Brother Copeland. But they wont have any idea what Im talking about. To them, Gods glory is just a vague, religious term. Or some kind of spiritual thrill that leaves them with goose bumps every now and then. Listen, the glory of God isnt a goose bump. Its much more vast and powerful than that. And before we can truly begin to expect it, we must know what it is. First Chronicles says glory and honor are in Gods presence. However, the word glory in the English language is really kind of pitiful. It can mean splendor, but also it can refer to boasting and pride. Those things have nothing to do with the glory of God. The Hebrew words translated glory mean desire, adornment, honor, beauty, majesty, cleanliness, purity, preciousness, rarity, weight and heaviness. So when you say God is glorious, youre really saying that God is a heavyweightheavy with everything good. He is heavy in prosperity. Heavy in healing. Heavy in deliverance. Heavy in salvation. Hallelujah! If you need to be saved from anything, God is heavy enough to do it! What were talking about here is living in the heavy weight of Gods goodness, desire, adornment, honor, beauty, majesty, cleanliness, purity, preciousness and rarity. When you walk in glory, you literally walk in God Himself! Of course, that power is going to break through to the natural realm more and more, and youre going to see physical manifestations of Gods presence. Just keep standing in grace by faith expecting the glory of God. Who knows, you may even get some goose bumps.Leviticus 16-18; Luke 13-14In the presence of God there are glory and honor and strength and gladness. 1 Chronicles 16:27
