When You are in The Glory
When you are in the Glory, you are in Jesus, who is the Glory, and there is no need for anointing, Jesus becomes anointing. When we come out, we take Jesus as LORD with us. He then becomes the spokesman, He then becomes our life. The life we live, we live in Him. Therefore, we do not work in our anointing or gifts; we let Jesus work in HIS Glory through us. Although Jesus has been our Lord and Savior all along, only at this time do we really recognize Him, and experience Him, as our LORD. Now when we say Jesus is LORD, it takes on an entire different meaning. Jesus becomes alive, with us, in us and through us!
This is where I see great caution! If we come out of the Glory, and minister to those in the inner (wilderness) or outer (Egypt) courts, using our anointing or ability through gifts, we start loving our anointing and gifts more then Jesus, for we truly believe that they are the Glory. The reality is, we are acting like Christ, making us the antichrist because we are deceiving others into thinking we are the ones who are anointed to do the work of God instead of Jesus. We get proud of the sermons we preach, the books we write, and before long, more people are looking to us for salvation or answers, then to Jesus the Lamb, who has all the Glory and honor. Yes we may say that we are only pointing others to Christ, but we are really building our own kingdoms on earth, that look like heaven. Before long we will even make carved images to line or gates or walls to show how Holy we worship.
The truth is, our anointing was like the rope that was tied to the ankle of the High priest. If the High Priest died, the other priest outside would pull him out by the rope. Same with us, only we do not die, we become naked to ourselves, but the anointing, three-cord rope pulls us out. The next time you minister, and think you are in the Glory, you may not be. You may have to go back in, or you might minister under your own power or anointing.
Moses had experience this when he came down the mountain and saw the people, dancing, and worshipping the golden image. He walked in his own anointing and calling, his anger rose, and he literally broke the Word of God; classic example that there were going to be two covenants, one of law, the other of grace. He did not take into account that these children of God, just came out of Egypt, and still had Egypt in them. But the second time he went to replace the tablets, he came back in Glory, and his face literally glowed. The same Word, that was the antidote to take Egypt out of the children, was Jesus. Jesus is the Glory of the Father. Moses was caring Jesus, through the law, to the children.
In the second or New Covenant, Jesus said, He did not come to do away with the law, but to fulfill it. He knew He could not do away with Himself. He knows and foreseen those today, His children who still have Egypt within them, would not move from Glory to Glory or grace to grace. Where sin is, grace does much more abound.
Yes, the children could have crossed Jordan sooner, but their leader broke the Word of God, before the children. It took another trip in and out of Glory, forty days for Moses, and forty years for the children, to get Egypt out of themselves in order to receive the promise. The children were fed, watered, and clothed, by the Holy Spirit, until the appointed time.
Two men had the vision, but the children would not listen to them, so the two men traveled in the wilderness of the desert with them, until time to lead the children across. The story is found in Numbers 13 & 14, where twelve men went to spy the Promised Land, ten died of the plague before the LORD, because they saw the glory and rebelled, two men, Caleb and Joshua, lived because they believed in the Glory. Neither the ten men, nor Moses, entered the Promised Land.
Whether it be Moses's day, David's day, or our day, every generation has had the opportunity to live in Glory. However, when the Glory became flesh, He made a way for everyone individually to enter, and not leave it up to the leader. But, the responsibility now lies on anyone who dares to enter in the tabernacles Most Holy Place.
When the woman gave birth to the male Child, in Revelations 12. The dragon, called the devil and satan, wanted to wage war with the woman, and kill the male Child. This dragon had seven heads and ten horns. There were seven breaches and there were ten spies who came against the Glory. The old covenant was birthing the new. Every gentile who has excepted Jesus, came from Egypt, and was a seed of Ishmael, who was of the seed of Abraham. Think about it! We all came out of Egypt, and we all need to get Egypt out of ourselves. The Glory makes it easy for us by grace to escape, but has become a stumbling block to the Jews who are still under the law.
Most everyone that I know who is growing in this mystery of God, recognizes that they came from the world system or Egypt. Some of us came from denomination, which are still in bondage to the law. Is not this a reflection of the wilderness? Remember the woman, she gave the male Child to God, and then Fled to the Wilderness! From the very place we were birthed, God uses to school us to where we are today.
This is the divine work of God, and not of ourselves. We look down on everyone, who does not act, think, or walk in the circles that we do, but the reality is, they were used of God, way before we ever noticed there was a God. Do not remove the old landmarks!
