When I read of the accounts of the lives of the Men and Women of Faith in the Holy Bible;I read that throughout the centuries the Lord has touched souls in a profound way to enable them to walk in Faith to answer the Call that the Lord has placed in their lives.The Glory of the Lord was revealed to the Early Church;His Physical Presence after the Resurrection was with them and He actually walked amongst the Men and Women and Children of that day.Jesus ate with them and Fellowshiped with them.How Awesome to know that those chosen men and women and children beheld His Awesome Physical Presence.King David knew the Lord and had a intimate relationship with Him,yet we are never told in the Holy Bible that King David saw the physical presence of the Lord while he was on earth.There were Men and Women of Faith who encountered the Physical Presence of the Lord; Abraham,Sarah,Daniel,Isaiah,actually saw the preincarnate Christ"The Angel of the LORD"
We are told that Jacob wrestled with "The Angel of the LORD "so that he could be Blessed by Him.One of the Old Testament Saints
King David says it so Beautifully in one of his Psalms"As for me,I will behold Thy Face in Righteousness I shall be satisfied when I awake with Thy Likeness"Psalm 17:15 KJV. Yes, King David longed for that day when he would be in the Physical Presence of the Lord.There will be times in our Walk with our Lord that He will reveal His Spiritual Presence with us through the Power of His Holy Spirit ,and at those moments we will encounter the Spiritual Presence of the Lord covering us with His Love and Protection as He hides us under the Shadow of His Wings.
We The Body of Christ in the year 2005 have the Spiritual Presence of the Lord in our Hearts and in our lives with us.There is nothing more Awesome here on earth then having the Spiritual veil removed so that We His Adopted Sons and Daughters can experience a Glimpse of His Glory in our lives. We will experience the spiritual veil being lifted from our souls as we walk in the Power of the Holy Spirit and we will feel His Presence.We will experience a Glimpse of the Lord's Glory; as we by His Grace Pray and as we Worship and Praise our Lord and as we sit at His Feet reading His Holy Word and as we serve Him by His Grace with the Talents,and Gifts that He has Blessed us with and during those moments of Inspiration ; we will witness a Glimpse of the Lord's Glory in our lives.And there will also be times as we endure trials,storms,illness ,loss and lonliness and when are unjustly treated for the cause of Christ we will behold a Glimpse of the Lord's Glory in our lives. Yes ,You and I have the Awesome privilege of Beholding a Glimpse of His Glory here on earth as we walk by Faith.As we submit our wills to His there will be times when He will Rapture our Souls with His Love;and daily He will fill us with His Peace,and His Joy. Yes ,we have the Awesome privelege of experiencing a Glimpse of His Glory now here on Earth;The Glory that will be Fully revealed to us in Heaven One Glorious Day.
