releasinggloryGod is preparing his church for glory, we’re entering into the ‘Glory’ phase of the church, and it’s exciting. It’s related to how God is revealing Himself and the degrees of His presence He is making available. God’s presence is manifest in three ways:



Psalm 139:7-8
Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.

Nothing happens in the universe that God is not aware of. Wherever the universe is expanding to, God is already there and He is in control of every subatomic particle in the universe.


Manifest presence refers to God revealing Himself at times, and is the subjective presence, when some know He is present in a meeting for example and some don’t.

Exodus 33:11
So the Lord spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle.

God spoke to Moses, but He wanted more, he wanted God’s presence.

Exodus 33:14-15
And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Then he said to Him, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here.

Moses then asked God for more, He asked for God’s glory. Theres a difference between God’s presence and His glory, and Moses knew it.

Exodus 33:18  And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.”


The glory of God in the Old Testament is explained in the Hebrew word as the weight of God’s presence, literally a physical manifestation of God.

Exodus 33:21-23  And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. 22 So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. 23 Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.”

The Lord told him to meet the next morning up Mt Sinai

Exodus 34:5-6 Now the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name of the Lord. And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth,

Glory of God is His goodness manifesting from the supernatural realm into the natural realm. It’s the manifestation of miracles, signs, and wonders. Remember that Jesus’ first miracle revealed his glory when he turned water into wine (John 2:11).

This generation is asking for the glory, we want to get supernatural results. We want miracles, signs and wonders. We want lives changed, bodies healed, people delivered.

God is working progressively to release His glory and promised us that the glory of the latter house will be greater than the former (Haggai 2:9).

We can look forward to realms of His glory that we have not yet experienced as the church moves toward the end of this age. How exciting and at the same time challenging.
