TODAY’S DEVOTION (Friday 15th May 2020)
7 So the LORD said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.” And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.” Exodus 33:17-18 NKJV
WELCOME TO THE 135th DAY OF OUR YEAR OF REJOICING
Blessed be the name of the LORD creator of Heaven and Earth.
The most exciting experience you can have is an experience with God’s glory. There are no words to describe what your life will become if you move to the next level of God for the end time Church – the glory.
I have been screaming since 2013 that I came here that these are no longer days of the anointing as we have known it, these are days of the glory. I thank God while some seems not know what this is all about, there are those that are pressing into the glory.
Sadly, the Church is far not aware of this that is why we struggle with the anointing and restrict ourselves to Satan’s operational plane. We have camped under the anointing for too long, consequently, inventing all kinds of deliverance inventions the way Satan did under the anointing. Remember, he was the anointed Cherub that covers.
Under the anointing you can invent anything from your own heart, and make it appear as from God. That is why we have all kinds of false teachings and prophecies today. But under the glory you cannot.
Satan was the first to use the anointing to invent. Do not forget he invented something that we are yet to uncover fully; something the Bible just calls “iniquity.” The prophet wrote, “Iniquity was found in him.” It was an invention he used his anointing to create. The result was darkness, destruction and what we have today.
BECAUSE GOD HAD HIM THROWN OUT OF HIS PRESENCE FOREVER.
Whenever you use your anointing to invent something and call it God, you will be thrown out of God’s manifest presence. Sadly, so many ministers, prophets and prophetesses have been thrown out of God’s manifest presence because of deliverance inventions. They have been restricted to their corrupt anointing, and will never touch the glory, that is why you cannot find the true glory of the LORD in their lives.
The reason the naïve do not know this is because the glory has not been revealed so many do not know how it look like. Ordinarily, a minister of the gospel who has lost the glory should not have followership, but most of them are the ones with the greatest followership these days.
It is dangerous these days to camp in the realm of the anointing.
Under the anointing you can invent man made prophecies, teachings, songs, prayers and etc. It is under the anointing that ministers of the gospel invented the drinking of oil, using pieces of clothes, lighting of candles, asking people for certain amount of money all in the name of deliverance. There are those who have gone berserk by asking human beings to eat grasses like goats
You can easily become Satanic under the anointing but not under the glory!
You may worship God in shallow places and touch the anointing, but if you want to touch the glory, you must go deeper with the LORD. When the glory begins to call on you from shallow places, it will place the desire of Deep intimacy in your heart. That is why wherever you find the revelation of God’s glory in the Bible, you find people deeply intimate with the LORD.
I have come to discover that, when the glory of the LORD is revealed to you, the desire to press into it will be born in your spirit, leading to deep intimacy with Jesus Christ. I also discovered that people who begin their Christian lives in the realm of glory, usually come out with strong salvation experiences. The Bible says;
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 1:12-13 NKJV
LET US TALK ABOUT WHAT I WILL CALL THE MYSTERY OF THE POWER TO BECOME A CHILD OF GOD
The power to become a Child of God cannot be understood until we uncover what Moses said to God when he was speaking with Him on matters of the the glory.
Moses said to God;
… “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth.” Exodus 33:15-16 NKJV
To find grace in God’s sight in the context of salvation is to be born again. In effect, Moses was saying to God “How will people know that we are born again if your presence does not go with us.” To me that was revolution.
He was simply saying “carrying the indwelling presence of God wherever you go is the only way to show to the world that you are born again.” It is not in loud confessions or the talk of the lips. That presence was revealed in the New Testament as the seal of the Holy Spirit which enables us to bear what the Bible calls the fruits of our salvation..
In other words, your “born again” claim is only authentic if it gets God’s presence stuck to your life. God’s sign to the world that you are His child is His presence in your life. If His presence is not with you and you go about telling the whole world you are saved, you are in delusion.
The presence of God in our life is the glory of our salvation!
Sadly, many born again smell unbelievably bad in the spirit. I have even met Pastors and so-called prophets and prophetesses who smell awfully bad in the spirit and I wonder. They carry the presence of hell around and still believe they will make Heaven.
YOU CANNOT MAKE IN THE NEXT LIFE WHERE YOU DO NOT SMELL IN THIS LIFE!
If you the presence of hell is what smells around you instead of the presence of God, it is a dangerous sign that you will go to hell when you die. In the same way, if the presence of God is what you smell around you as a Christian, it is a glorious sign that you will go to Heaven when you die.
Your smell in this life determines your destination in the next life! That is the first reason why you must change your spiritual smell.
The second reason is clear; what you smell in the spirit is what determines what happens in your life in the natural. Many have the smell of demons and persistent sin in their lives – I mean Christians. If it were unbelievers, I will not have worried because they are not saved, so they can smell anything.
The stench some Christians send out in the spirit is very devastating. You will never know what I am sharing with you this morning until God grant you the mercy in the deeper places of the Spirit to sense this terrible smells around the so called “born again” Christians. That is why they suffer all kinds of affliction.
The presence you carry around you is what indeed determines what happens in your life. I know I am sharing things that shallow minded Christians will not even give a taught to. But you need to stop being shallow minded because Satan attacks these days from his depths – the Bible calls it the depths of Satan. You must go deep in Christ to be victorious. That is why God is calling us to deep intimacy.
I have seen people who cannot get or stay married because of what they smell in the spirit. What you smell in the spirit is what defines the state of your marital life and many other aspects of your life. That is why God change our smell as soon as we encounter the LORD.
Sadly, some will encounter the LORD, He will change their smell and they will go and commit abominations that restores back the smell, thereby moving from affliction to affliction. This is a terrible development that calls for double attention. What are you emitting in the Spirit realm? That is the ultimate question for the now.
MAKE THIS SCRIPTURE AN ADDITIONAL MEDITATION.
And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. 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.
Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.” Exodus 33:21-23 NKJV
