EXPERIENCING THE GLORY

That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man.
(Ephesians 3:16)

The man with an argument is always at the mercy
of the man with an experience.
Mark Hankins

What is the glory? The glory of God is not just something intellectual; the glory of God is something you experience. The Apostle Paul talks about experiencing the glory of God throughout the book of Ephesians.

In Ephesians 3, Paul says that God will strengthen your inner man; this strength comes from His glory.

Moses desired to see the glory. He cried out to God and said, “Show me your glory.” David did the same thing in Psalm 63, “My soul thirsteth for thee…to see thy power and thy glory….”

God will strengthen you and increase your capacity so you will be able to possess things in your life that are exceeding abundantly above what you could ever imagine. God wants to do something in you that will shock a generation!

Confession: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. (Ephesians 3:20)

PREPARE FOR GLORY: LIFT YOUR VOICE

Then the Lord put forth his hand and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. (Jeremiah 1:9)

The spoken word builds the road for the glory to come.
Mark Hankins

In Mark 11:23, Jesus said, “Whosoever shall say…he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Anytime God wants to change someone’s life, He always touches his or her mouth. He changes families, churches, cities, and nations the same way.

The move of God is voice activated. We must speak the Word of God. Your voice is your address in the realm of the spirit.

Today, God is touching your mouth. God wants you to lift your voice as a believer; as you do, you will move mountains and prepare for the glory of the Lord. We must exercise our faith to prepare for the glory of God.

Confession: For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. ( Mark 11:23)

GLORY…GET LOADED

For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14)

Our prayers, faith, and giving tap into God’s treasury…GLORY!
Mark Hankins

The Old Testament word for glory is kabod. It simply means heavy. The best way to see it is heavy or loaded with the goodness of God. In 2 Chronicles 5 & 7, as the people praised God saying, “The Lord is good and his mercy endureth forever,” the glory filled the temple. Heavy filled the house and the priests could not stand up. The manifested presence of God filled the temple. That is why today we can be so filled with the glory of God that we get loaded with God’s goodness; we get saturated with the life of God.

The New Testament word for glory is doxa. It is the light of the Gospel that shines and dispels all darkness and all the works of the devil!

Our prayers, faith, and giving tap into God’s treasury…GLORY! My God shall supply all of your need according to His riches in GLORY by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)

Confession: The glory of God loads me with His goodness and is the light of the Gospel that shines and dispels all darkness and all the works of the devil in my life!

EVER-INCREASING

The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. (Daniel 11:32 NKJV)

Every advance in the call and the blessing of God comes from
an advance in revelation. Mark Hankins

God created you to know that there is more available than what you have right now. He’s looking for somebody who will believe God. While everyone else is scared, God is looking for someone who will act in faith — somebody who will know God.

If you want life to be different for you, pray the prayer in Ephesians 1:17-23 every day for at least six months. If you really want to know what the will of God is, if you really want to be in the right place at the right time with the right people, if you really want to be led by the Spirit, take this prayer and pray it.

Believe God for a breakthrough in revelation. Believe for a revolutionary revelation in your understanding, in the eyes of your heart. Believe for a breakthrough in the way you see yourself, the way you see the call of God, the way you see your inheritance, and the way you see your authority as a believer.

Confession: That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to me the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. (Ephesians 1:17)

HONORING SUPERNATURAL RELATIONSHIPS

Now Joshua son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses laid his hands upon him. (Deuteronomy 34:9 NKJV)

The spirit of wisdom and revelation is accessed by the Word of God, the Holy Spirit, and supernatural relationships.
Mark Hankins

In Deuteronomy 34:10, God said, “I have talked to Moses face-to-face.” Moses knew God. Joshua the son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him. Joshua wasn’t looking for an increase in intellectual knowledge about God. He was looking for a more intimate personal experience with God through the spirit of wisdom and revelation.

The Bible says in Ephesians 4:11 that when Jesus ascended upon high, He gave gifts unto men. This refers to people through whom God’s anointing and revelation flow to the Body of Christ to reveal Jesus. These gifts may not always be the kinds of gifts we want to receive from; but whenever Jesus is in revelation, the devil is on the run. We need to embrace the supernatural relationships God gives us so that we can receive all of the revelation He desires to impart to us in our lives!

Confession: I honor Jesus as head of the church. I value His body and receive from the supernatural relationships He has brought into my life.
