Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional September 7th – You Carry A Treasure!

(The Glory Of God Is Inside You)

TO THE BIBLE: Psalm 102:16,18 KJV
“When the LORD shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory…This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.”

LET’S TALK
The only thing the Christian is yet to receive that should happen on the earth is the redemption—the transformation or glorification—of the physical body.

This means that, at the Rapture of the Church, we’re going to put on new bodies, but those bodies are going to come from heaven, and the Bible tells us exactly how that’s going to happen.

It says, “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (1 Corinthians 15:52-53).

However, till then, we carry in our earthly bodies the glory of Christ, and Paul calls it a treasure: “…But we have this treasure in earthen containers, so that the extraordinary greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves” (2 Corinthians 4:7 NASB).
The light of God is in your spirit. You bear the perfections of Christ. Hallelujah!

The Bible says, “For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ” (2 Corinthians 4:6 NIV). You’re truly the living tabernacle of God! Christ is alive in you.

Why is this so important? It’s because we are the last generation of the church age, the one to manifest the glory of God here on earth. The earth has been waiting for this for a long time, “For the eagerly awaiting creation waits for the revealing of the sons and daughters of God” (Romans 8:19 NASB), and we have arrived! Glory to God! We have come to take our place, to impact the world with and for the glory of God.

Speak
As I meditate on the Word, I’m continually transfigured, and not only do I walk in the glory of God, I am the glory of God! I impact my world today, changing hopeless situations and shining ever so brightly in a dark world with this glory. I can never be defeated! Hallelujah!
