??The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former,? says the Lord of hosts. ?And in this place I will give peace,? says the Lord of hosts.?
The glory of His latter house will be greater than that of the former house. God has plans to overflow His people with His glory. We are in that latter house time. As time goes on the glory of God is going to increase in His Church. Of course the world will get darker but God?s light and glory will only get brighter! For those who make the Lord their dwelling place they will only get brighter in His Presence, shining like the sun.
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.?
These are the overcomers who have learned to live in the Presence of God even when things are constantly changing externally. Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. This is the victory, even our faith, that has overcome the world. There is no need to be discouraged, but only encouraged ?for if God is for us, then who can be against us?? (Romans 8:31) As Jesus said, ?Take heart for I have overcome the world.? Let’s keep our eyes?on the face of the Son of God, JESUS, the author and finisher of our faith.
?These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.?
The knowledge of the glory of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea. His light?will shine?through you and me. God calls us higher and deeper in?Him. Make a whole-hearted commitment to continually surrender to the fullness of His presence?in your life.
