THE HEAVINESS OF GOD

Ezek. 3:23 Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the glory of the LORD stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar: and I fell on my face.

One of the most unusual things about Christians is their lingo. They use words like saved, lost, heathen, on fire; you get the drift. One of those words is “glory”. What an awesome word; what’s the problem. No non-Christians and very few believers even have a clue what glory is. Jonathan Edwards wrote one of his greatest books on the Glory of the Lord. He called it ‘The End for which God Created the Earth’. One of the key points to this book was life changing for me. He said that the first definition of glory was the revelation of the inherit nature of a being. When that refers to God, it is the very excellence of His person, His divine qualities that are suddenly revealed. The results of that are quite stunning and can cause one to become undone. Here are some of Edwards own words on glory.

“The word glory denotes sometimes what is internal. When the word is used to signify what is within, or in the possession of the subject, it very commonly signifies excellency, dignity, or worthiness of regard. This, according to the Hebrew idiom, is, as it were, the weight of a thing, as that by which it is heavy; as to be light is to be worthless, without value, contemptible. Numbers 21:5: “This light bread.” 1 Samuel 18:23: “Seemeth it a light thing.” Judges 9:4: “Light persons,” worthless, vain, vile persons. So Zephaniah 3:4. To set light by is to despise, 2 Samuel 19:43. Belshazzar’s vileness in the sight of God, is represented by his being Tekel, weighed in the balances and found light,88 Daniel 5:27. And as the weight of a thing arises from its magnitude, and its specific gravity conjunctly; so the word glory is very commonly used to signify the excellency of a person or a thing, as consisting either in greatness, or in beauty, or in both conjunctly; as will abundantly appear by considering the places referred to in the margin.”
That is really heavy. The weightiness of God manifest by His felt Presence. Have you ever experienced that for yourself? When you do you will be soaked in His love. You will be convinced and frankly, you will be finished. Nothing this world promises even comes close.

It was awesome, it was His Love and His Presence, I could just shout Hallelujah, even though I did not know what it meant, I keep wanting more of that, but might just get it when I depart to be with Him. Love you all
