INTRODUCTION 

Life is full of promises, hopes and expectations. Often times, these anticipated glorious manifestations are challenged with battles, struggles and contentions. So, while we live in anticipation of the promises made and lofty heights envisioned we are careful not to be deterred by the strains of disappointments we face as things are apparently not turning out as envisioned. It is important I let you know that God is not slack concerning His promises- if He has said it, then He will do it, if He has promised to show up, then He will show up, if He has assured you of His glory regardless of the time delay (as measured by man)- God will definitely show up in that room both in power and glory!

 UNDERSTANDING GLORY

1.        Glory is used to describe the manifestation of God's Presence. God's glory is a reference to the visible manifestation of God. You cannot separate the Presence of God from His glory. (Exodus 33:11-23) This speaks of His Attributes.

2.       In the Old Testament, Glory is derived from the Hebrew word ‘Kabod’. (1 Samuel 4:14-22) This speaks of His holiness and weightiness, which is, His significance. (Leviticus 10:1–3, 2 Corinthians 4:17)

3.       In the New Testament, Glory is derived from the Greek word ‘doxa’. Meaning The honour, praise, to appear, appearance that commands respect, excellence, and magnificence. This describes God's nature and actions in His Self-manifestation.

4.      Glory is an indescribable and incomprehensible light (Revelation 21:22–25), an overwhelming experience (Exodus 3:1-4), unquantifiable greatness (Ezekiel 1), limitless splendour and impressiveness (Ezekiel 1) and an unusual delight and terror all at the same time (Exodus 20:19-21; 34:27-35) (Exodus 3, (Ezekiel 1, Luke 2)

5.       Glory is ‘Substance’. (Exodus 16:6-8, 10, 24:15-18; 33:18, 40:34-35, Leviticus 9:4, 6, 23) 2 Corinthians 3:7-18

 Verse 1 

THE SETTLED CASE!

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. v1

- To Arise Means to get up, braze up, wake up, take your place, emerge, become apparent, come to light. No more time and room for story, the glory has come!

- To Shine Means to emit light, to give out a bright light.

Manifesting Glory in Varying Dimensions: 1 Corinthians 15:41

Those who have decided not to make you enter into the fullness of your purpose. Some of these challenges can be personal battles of life, natural phenomena, government regulations, work place politics, societal deprivation, gender bias, social stratification, whatsoever it is, I would like you to know that all you need to do is Arise, Shine!
