Today’s devotion is the third portion of, “Some Purposes for Prophecy” and once again my text is Revelation 1:1. “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:” (KJV) Today I want to share with you the “Immenseness of God’s Glory ” as a purpose for prophecy.
In II Thessalonians 1:7-10, Paul is dealing with prophetic scripture and writes in vs. 10 “When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.” (KJV)
Notice that our Savior will “be glorified in his saints!” What a thought that is! What a time that will be! I believe that ALL the saved will see Him differently then, than many do now. The Church, as a whole today, is failing to see our Savior as we ought, and that’s one reason for so much unfaithfulness in living for the Lord. Can you imagine in that day, as we see Him astride that beautiful stallion coming back to this earth as King of all kings and Lord of all lords, our heart will swell with admiration and we will praise Him as never before. We esteem Him with eyes of amazement and awe. He will be the reason we’re there and not in Hell. He will be the “apple of our eye” so to speak. He will be so IMMENSE that He will be the focus of all our attention. Prophecy tells me that, that is how it will be one day. How about we get a head start on that today!
