The Era of the Glory of the Father

22.06.2020, Daniel Glimm


Personally, I feel deep in my heart that we as God's people have entered a new era of God's glory, which is the glory of the Father.
 
It is the glory of the Father in Christ Jesus His Son that makes us walk on a new level of governmental authority and administration of the revelation of the throne room of God. This is closely linked to a new life in the supernatural realm, based on intimacy with the triune God (cf. Romans 6:4).
 
Romans 6:4:
4 We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
 
The life within this supernatural governmental realm and the glory of the Father is connected with the sacrifice of selflessness and true love towards Him. This results in a new weighty harvest of glory, which is accompanied by variety (cf. John 12:27-29 i.c.w. John 12:24).
 
John 12:27-29:
27 “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour.
28 Father, glorify your name!” Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.”
29 The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.
 
John 12:24:
24 Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.
 
Our high calling as lovers of the Father in Christ Jesus is to emerge, like Christ, sacrificially as grains of wheat, doing everything possible to demonstrate the government of the Father and to teach the ‘norm’ of His Kingdom on earth.
 
The Glory of the Father and the High Realm of Revelation
 
The glory of the Father as well as His glorification is accompanied by high prophetic revelation, which is perceived as a riddle or even a parable for those who are not willing to pay the price and are therefore not close to the heart of God, although the Father speaks clearly. According to our intensity of relationship with the Father, the respective revelation will be perceived (cf. Matthew 13:10-13 i.c.w. John 12:28-29; Daniel 10:7).
 
Matthew 13:10-13:
10 The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”
11 He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.
12 Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.
13 This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
 
John 12:28-29:
28 Father, glorify your name!” Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.”
29 The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.
 
Daniel 10:7:
7 I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision; those who were with me did not see it, but such terror overwhelmed them that they fled and hid themselves.
 
As God's people we find ourselves in the time of ‘distinction’, in which it becomes more evident who really serves the Father and who does not serve Him (cf. Malachi 3:18).
 
Malachi 3:18:
18 And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.
 
This distinction is made evident by the power of the revelatory truth of the Word of God and the teaching and leading of the Holy Spirit, so that the lives of believers who move in the sonship of Christ appear before the eyes of men like rod and staves, with the purpose of bringing about course correction.
 
Every believer who submits to and accepts this revelatory truth enters into a new realm of the comfort of God (cf. Psalm 23:4 i.c.w. John 16:7.13).
 
Psalm 23:4:
4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
 
John 16:7.13:
7 But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. …
13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
 
The above ‘distinction’ will be a clear boundary line that separates between a ‘soul Christian’ and a ‘spirit filled Christian’. In this regard I received the word from Ezekiel 10:6-8 i.c.w. 1 Corinthians 15:45 and Galatians 3:27, which call us to be clothed with Christ Jesus in righteousness and to live as spirit filled Christians.
 
Ezekiel 10:6-8:
6 When the Lord commanded the man in linen, “Take fire from among the wheels, from among the cherubim,” the man went in and stood beside a wheel.
7 Then one of the cherubim reached out his hand to the fire that was among them. He took up some of it and put it into the hands of the man in linen, who took it and went out.
8 (Under the wings of the cherubim could be seen what looked like human hands.)
 
1 Corinthians 15:45:
45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being (note: soul; see Genesis 2:7)”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.
 
Galatians 3:27:
… 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
 
The ‘Man’ in the Linen Garment and the Consuming Fire

The man in the linen garment mentioned in Ezekiel 10:6-8 is a call for us as believers in the sonship of Christ to go forward in righteousness and purity in order to receive with open hands the harvest of the Father's glory for this time and the time to come.
This is the consuming element of God's being, which is a consuming fire (cf. Deuteronomy 4:24 i.c.w. Hebrews 12:29)

Deuteronomy 4:24:
24 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

Hebrews 12:29:
… 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”

This fiery glory of God's inner being goes hand in hand with the movement of His glory, which carries a high degree of ‘electric charge’ that equals flashing lightning.

Furthermore, the fiery presence of God's being goes hand in hand with His glory and the movement of His governmental dominion such as we have never experienced on earth (cf. Ezekiel 10:6).

Ezekiel 10:6:
6 When the Lord commanded the man in linen, “Take fire from among the wheels, from among the cherubim,” the man went in and stood beside a wheel.

As a result, the liveliness and resurrection power of the Son of God in the sanctified body of Christ on earth intensifies, leading to a bold readiness to receive from the hand of God, His fiery being, in order to further extend the kingdom of God in the element of consuming fire on earth (cf. John 11:25 i.c.w. Ezekiel 10:7-8).

John 11:25:
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; …

Ezekiel 10:7-8:
7 Then one of the cherubim reached out his hand to the fire that was among them. He took up some of it and put it into the hands of the man in linen, who took it and went out.
8 (Under the wings of the cherubim could be seen what looked like human hands.)

In order that this holy fire may be given, the Lord will lift up ready ministers of the fivefold ministry (cf. Ephesians 4:11) into a new and higher revelatory realm of His glory, so that they may be able to receive the consuming fire from the throne room presence of God as one hand, in order to transfer it into the body of Christ on earth.

This results in a transformation within the level of relationship of the bride of Christ, causing her to change from a two-dimensional structure (note: sister, darling, …) to the three-dimensional structure (note: dove), including the Spirit-filled life in agreement with the Holy Spirit. This becomes clear from the Bible passage from Song of Songs 5:1a.2.
 
Song of Songs 5:1a.2:
1 I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride; …
2 I slept but my heart was awake. Listen! My beloved is knocking: “Open to me, my sister, my darling, my dove, my flawless one. My head is drenched with dew, my hair with the dampness of the night.”
 
The Transformation of the Level of Relationship

This transformation of the level of relationship and the total surrender to the Holy Spirit results in an increase in the harvest of God's glory. The Holy Spirit leads us as the bride of Christ into a new dimension of spiritual harvest, which will be reflected in the natural realm.

Here it is important that we remain uncompromisingly in the field of our bridegroom Jesus Christ, ready to gather with a humble heart our harvest of glory as assigned by the Father, in order to receive shortly thereafter from ‘the high place’ of His glory. It is similar to Ruth who, on the instruction of her mother-in-law Naomi, went into the field of Boaz and enjoyed the harvest (cf. Ruth 2:17 i.c.w. Ruth 3:15).

Ruth 2:17:
17 So Ruth gleaned in the field until evening. Then she threshed the barley she had gathered, and it amounted to about an ephah. (note: about 17 kg).

Ruth 3:15:
15 He also said, “Bring me the shawl you are wearing and hold it out.” When she did so, he poured into it six measures of barley (note: about 25-33 kg) and placed the bundle on her. Then he went back to town.

This weight of the harvest of Ruth is an indication of the weight of the glory of God, which is related to a prophetic inheritance and leads to much release.

=> The term ‘glory’ includes the perceived presence, co-operating power and the splendor of God manifested by His appearance. It is the presence of the Father of the Son or the Holy Spirit.
The glory was more than a shining appearance. It also contains a testimony of the favor and grace of the Lord. It is a sign of His glory as well as the acceptance of the sacrifices of the praise of His worshipping people.
The Hebrew word for glory is ‘kābôd’ or ‘kavod’. Literally, ‘kābôd’ is the ‘weighty, burdensome, respectable’.
The Greek word is ‘doxa’, from which we got the term ‘doxology’ (note: glorification of God).
Glory includes in terms of its appearance, honor, prestige, power and blessing. Regarding all definitions of glory, its goal is to make or establish someone important (note: ‘with weight’) in the spiritual realm.
The presence of God automatically brings an increase in every area, because earthly wealth and prosperity are located in the spiritual world.
The glory is an automatic depository of the anointing. <= (The text set in ‘=>’ is based on an explanation of the word ‘glory’ from the ‘Prophet`s Dictionary’ by Paula A. Price, Ph. D.; page 237).
 
Amen and Amen.
 
In His Wisdom,
