God’s Glory in the EarthNovember 23, 2013
“But [the time is coming when] the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” ~ Hab 2:14 AMP
God’s glory fills the earth. He wants people to become aware of His Glory. When was the last time you walked through Wal-Mart and saw people who were wide-eyed about the wonder of who God was?
How about stopping at a traffic light, looking over at the person in the car next to you and seeing that they were raising their hands in adoration of Jesus Christ? When was the last time that you heard a news report on the television stating that, “God has done it again! Another dead raising.”
What about walking through the streets and seeing people who overflow with joy at the hope they had and embraced life with new courage and a purpose to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ?
Can we dream for a moment?
God is in the business of reconciliation. Reconciling others to Himself and others to others. What can you imagine heaven to be like? You don’t have to think long about it to get a glimpse, the bible tells us. In heaven there is perfect trust of the Heavenly Father. There is no sickness. There is not disease or pain. There is no death. The results of the first human beings on earth disobeying God was a world full of hate, disease and death.
Our Lord Jesus Christ came to the earth to restore what was lost through the fall. He came to seek and to save that which was lost. He came from heaven to invade earth. Marturias is about us understanding that one thing: Heaven invading earth.
