He Who Sees the Glory of the Lord
(Lk2:1-20)

God is the Lord of glory.
Glory comes from Him and returns to him.
Into His glory He invites those who reveal His glory (Rev21:23-24).

Faith is seeing His glory and
The life of this faith is laying down one’s glory and revealing His glory.

Though it is difficult to explain what glory is,
It is what every man wants to possess.
It is enjoyed by the elected, the winner, and
Those who are above in their positions, power, knowledge, wealth etc.
People consider it an honor just to meet with such persons.

As an archangel, Satan wanted to be like God in heaven (Is14:12-14; Eze28:12-17) and
He was subsequently thrown into Hades until the great day of judgment (Jude1:6).
Deceived by him, Adam ate the forbidden fruit and sinned (Ge3:4-6), and thus
All men became slaves of the devil (2Pe2:19).

Israel was chosen as a people to display the glory of God (Is49:3), and
They saw the glory of God (Ps97:6):
They saw the Egyptian army being destroyed in the Red Sea (Ex14:4),
Manna in the desert every morning (Ex16:7), and
The fire and the clouds above the holy mountain (Ex24:16) as well as
The Tabernacle and the Temple (Ex40:34-35; 2Ch7:1-2).

The Tabernacle was the dwelling place of
The glory of the Lord (Ps26:8) and the name Jehovah (2Ch6:6).
The ark of the Lord was also there — the glory of Israel (1Sa4:22).
So even after losing their sovereignty and becoming captives,
They did kept their hope in the coming Messiah (Ps24:9) and
The restoration of the splendor of Israel (Na2:2).

However, Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days,” because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body (Jn2:19-22),
He would reveal the glory of the Only Begotten Son (Jn1:14)
In the Father’s name Yeshua (Jn5:43)
For He is the Word in the beginning who had glory with the Father (Jn17:5).

As such, He performed many miraculous signs and
Healed those with various diseases (Mt15:31; Mk2:12).
Though the people wanted to make Him their king (Jn6:15) and
The disciples wanted to put up shelters for Him (Lk9:32-33),
He spoke of the day when the Son of Man would return in glory (Mt25:27-31).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Enduring shame, surrender and submission to the point of death, gave glory to the Father who alone never bows down, who in turn gave glory to the Son (Jn8:54; Php2:6-11);
2) Judged Satan who challenged the glory of God (1Jn3:8); and
3) With the blood of redemption delivered men from the slavery of the devil (Eph1:7).


He rose and sat on the heavenly throne and He is the glorious Lord (Jas2:1),
The Lamb who has eternal marks of His glorious submission (Rev5:6).

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of glory (1Pe4:14) who
Lets the glory of Yeshua be known (Jn16:13).

A disciple made by the Spirit is
Honored to have
The precious blood of Yeshua, the name of Yeshua and the Spirit of glory in him.
Therefore, he gloriously accepts suffering, poverty, lowliness etc (Ac5:40-41; Rm8:16-18), and
When he sees his prayer answered or miracles, he sees the glory of the Lord.
He lets down his net, vanity and even his pride (Lk5:1-11), and
Fulfills the Lord’s work as glorious work for
He longs to have his lowly body transformed in that day
Into a glorious body like that of Christ and be brought into His glory (Php3:21).

O Lord,
Give us the eyes to catch a glimpse of the glory of the Lord!
Let us truly have the experience of letting go our nets so that
We could follow You until the end. Amen.
