“Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, 1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:”
There were many things that were intentionally put in scriptures. Remember, all scriptures was given by the inspiration of the Holy Ghost. Peter put it this way, that “holy men of God spoke as were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
Some translations weaken verse 17 above. The actual says, “the Father of Glory”. If God is the Father of Glory, Jesus is the glory of God encapsulated in the body. Jesus is the effugence of God’s glory; the express image of God; the glory of God in the flesh. Jesus is glory!
2 Corinthians 3:18 (AMPC)
“And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.”
God’s word is a mirror. As we look in God’s mirror, we see the glory of God. This means we’re the glory of God. If your reflection is called the glory of God, then you’re the glory of God!
If you don’t you’re the glory of God, you’ll never live your life like that; you’ll live a life lesser than that of glory. Jesus knew all things and the word of God tells us today that if you’re in Christ, you’re the glory of God. When you don’t understand this, you can get discouraged, frustrated, unhappy and downcast.
Don’t yield your mind to lesser thoughts, imaginations and contemplations. I have the mind of Christ! I think His thoughts! That’s what you must do because you’re the glory of God!
One day you’re going to stand before God; what are you going to say? Will you say that the conditions of life were so tough? No!
I’m going to say that I fought the good fight of faith and finished the race with confident assurance of a crown for you.
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:”
1 Corinthians 2:6-10
“Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”
You received the Seven Spirits of God when you received the Holy Ghost and they reside in you to manifest the Spirits of God.
The Spirit of Wisdom grants you access into mysteries. We speak wisdom; the wisdom of God. Through the Holy Ghost, our Spirits can receives knowledge of secrets. You have to live through the supernatural.
“The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.” (also see AMPC)
“Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; 45:2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.”
