¹O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. ²Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. ³When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; ⁴What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? ⁵For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. ⁶Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: ⁷All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; ⁸The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. ⁹O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth.
Contrary to many religious beliefs, Heaven is not the destination of Gods people, seeing that God’s very Glory is above the heavens, (John 17:22-And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:), we see that the Glory of God is in the new creature (2 corinthians 5:17) manifesting His magnificence, the Man that has been made new is to show forth the works of God not end at receiving.
⁸For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. ⁹For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Old things are gone and the new has come, Men have been challenged by this and have refused to see the truth of God’s word which is also given to men that they may believe. Salvation is just the beginning but also a past occurrence once and for all, we are called to manifest the works of God. After receiving Salvation, there is the Call of God, respond to that call that You may see God’s purpose, that Call is divine and not natural, Yes many have been misled that You must hear these precious words through the skies like Paul ‘My Child, this God, I have called You to….’
Know this , Everyone that had received Salvation has a call on their lives and much more it was pre ordained before the foundations of the earth, those that are satisfied with just getting saved forfeit the Call and purpose of God thereby frustrating the Grace of God.
2 Timothy 1:7-9
⁷For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. ⁸Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; ⁹Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
The God of all Liberty had committed His liberties to men by the call of God but many have chosen to be spectators in the body of Christ, do something for God for He has already done all things for You, things You will never understand until You start to walk in the Call.
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
When God redeemed us, He never did so, so that we may have liberty to go back into bondage, our Liberty is so we live in the glory of God, to be glorified by God is to be that Glory itself, for instance Jesus was glorified and His nature became the actual nature of God.(Zoe)
Jesus Glorified in God
These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:
You Glorified in God
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I am morphed into the nature of God,
I am righteousn walking in God’s Call,
I am Glorified, taking strides forth extending God’s Kingdom in Love to the world.
I am God’s Grace personified demonstrating God’s purpose winning every Day moving from Victory into Victory.
Greatness defines me.
²⁰I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. ²¹I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
