2 Corinthians 4:6 For God Who said, Let light shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts so as to beam forth the Light for the illumination of the knowledge of the Majesty and the Glory of God as it is manifest in the Person and is revealed in the face of Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
Glory — c) dignity, honor, praise, worship
Majesty — d) the dignity or power of a sovereign
Sovereign — d) above all others, chief; supreme
The Lord has shown us the beauty of Jesus by giving us the ability to understand and know Him and all that He is. It says in verse 3 that this knowledge is not for the unbeliever but is hidden from them. That is one reason we are to be witnesses of the good things we have received.
When the Light comes into our heart, it dispels the darkness. That is why unbelief is so dangerous. The darkness is right behind unbelief. Our faith is the most important thing that we have. So Satan will attack us in this area. We must always be aware of where our spiritual eyes are. We have been given this Light to open up to us more and more of the knowledge of Jesus. His Majesty — His Beauty — His Glory!
How do we do this? The scripture says, “as it is manifest in the Person and is revealed in the face of Jesus Christ, the Messiah.” We have been given access to the throne room when we come to worship. That door was opened when He died on the cross. We can come and behold His beauty and His glory. But there again, Satan will do whatever he can to stop you from worship. He knows how valuable it is because he use to be the worship leader in heaven, before he was kicked out.
The Lord gave me this scripture after I saw the two rainbow angels in the sky (June 25, 2021 Scripture and Song). That is what the face beside the angel meant to me. My Worship took on a different and deeper level. He told me while I was singing to put my eyes on Him and not to look away. It took much more concentration on my part.
But as I looked up, I found Him. And I fought to not allow any thoughts in my mind that would distract me. The longer I gazed upon Him, The clearer He became. It was one of the most blessed moments of my life. I will never be the same.
The definition for glory is dignity and honor, but it is also praise and worship. There is power in our worship. We need that power everyday. Sundays and Wednesdays at Church will not be enough to see us through the hard times.
The rest of 2 Cor. 4 is about the trials we go through and ends on this note:
18. Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.
Our worship is deathless and everlasting!
