Coming Of His Glory
By Wade E. Taylor
"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man
hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to
him, and will sup with him, and he with Me." Rev 3:20.
"He who has My commandments, and keeps them, he it
is that loves Me: and he that loves Me shall be
loved of My Father, and I will love him, and will
manifest Myself to him." John 14:21.
The Lord's part is to reveal His presence. Our part is to
be sensitive and responsive to His presence, and to be available
to Him as a "vessel" through whom His glory might
Presently, the Holy Spirit is working within us a deeper
understanding and out-working of our redemption. The purpose
of this is to prepare us for the coming visitation of His
"Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into
the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and
living way, which He has consecrated for us, through
the veil, that is to say, His flesh." Heb 10:19-20.
“Let us draw near with a true heart in full
assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled
from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed
with pure water." Heb 10:22.
It is very important for each one of us to recognize that
our relationship to the Lord is based on His righteousness,
and not our own. Once we understand this, we can daily draw
near to the Lord and commune with Him, no matter how we may
feel. As a result of this on-going daily fellowship with the
Lord, we become available to the Lord for the manifestation
of His glory through us.
We are living in the last days, during which there is to
be a physical manifestation of the glory of God. This manifested
glory will be experienced by those who are prepared, because
they have been in the presence of the Lord; but it will only
be seen by others.
This manifestation of glory will be a part of the "Parousia"
- the appearing of the Lord to prepare those who are overcomers,
for their part in the closing out of this age and the ushering
in of the Millennial Kingdom age.
"Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory
of the LORD is risen upon you. For, behold, the
darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness
the people; but the LORD shall arise upon you, and
His glory shall be seen upon you. And the Gentiles
shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness
of your rising." Isaiah 60:1-3.
Moses prefigures the manifestation of this end-time glory.
He spent so much time in the presence of the Lord that his
countenance literally glowed with the glory of the presence
of the Lord.
"But if the ministry of death, written and engraven
in stones, was glorious, so that the children of
Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses
for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to
be done away, how shall not the ministry of the
Spirit be more glorious?” II Cor 3:7-8.
The glory that was seen on the face of Moses so convicted
Israel that they requested that a veil be placed over his
face, when he spoke to them. They could abide his words, but
not the visible glory which they saw resting upon him.
Had Israel rightly responded, this manifested glory would
have taken them into a deeper experience of their redemption
from Egyptian bondage, and prepared them for a yet greater
manifestation of His glory.
I Peter 1:5 tells us that there is a "salvation"
that is reserved for the last days. This salvation is the
coming forth of the glory of God in a physical comprehensive
way; a visible manifestation of the glory of the Lord upon
The word, "manifest" means "to make visible"
to one or more of our five natural senses, which are; hearing,
smell, taste, sight, and touch.
"You are our epistle written in our hearts,
known and read of all men." II Cor 3:2.
It is what we have become, rather than what we say, that
is the most effective witness. Thus, the manifested glory
of the Lord, resting upon us, will be a powerful witness in
"Who also has made us able ministers of the New
Testament; not of the letter, but of the Spirit;
for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life." II
This is far more than an ability to preach an intellectually
perceptive message. There have been tremendous orators - those
who had great success through what they were able to say.
There are those who lack this ability, but are successful
due to the anointing and manifestation of the Lord's presence
that rests upon them. If they had some great natural ability,
it would be evident that their success was due to this ability,
rather than the imparted presence and glory of the Lord.
In this day, the Lord is taking behind the veil those who
are lacking in ability, but who are expectantly abiding in
His presence. These are seeking to better know the Lord, and
are available to Him for whatever purpose He may have. From
these, this imparted glory will shine forth in manifest witness.
The Scripture tells us that this glory, which we have received
through the New Covenant, is greater than the glory which
Moses had. Yet no one has told any of us to put a veil over
our faces. Thus, there is something available to us that we
have not yet appropriated.
This is because we have listened to the lie of the enemy,
who told us that we are not worthy to come behind the veil
to behold His glory. We must push past this deception, and
come boldly into His presence to "soak" in His glory.
Only then will the world see that which they are searching
for, but have not found in the world, nor until this time,
in the Church.
