And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together,
for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
~ Isaiah 40:5
We have never seen the full glory of God, and limitations of our human minds mean we can’t even imagine it, either. But one day it will be revealed—on the day Jesus returns. That is the day when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. But for those who wait until that moment to confess Christ, it will be too late. They will recognize the deity of Christ, but at that time it will not save them. However, those of us who kneel and confess Jesus as our Lord before that great day will be saved. We will not only see His glory at the time of His return, but we will live in it forever. The New Jerusalem is described in Revelation as not needing a sun or moon because God will give it light and Jesus will be its lamp. The glory of the Lord will be on display, and it will beyond our imaginings.
Lord God, I try to imagine Your glory, but my finite mind cannot grasp the infinite. Although I can envision it now, one day I will see You in all Your glory. Thank You that You sent Jesus to save me from my sins so I can dwell in glory with You. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Ghost forever and ever. Amen.
