"And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them" (Acts 2:1-3).

There is coming a time when the Glory of God won't just radiate out from God, it will radiate from us! It will burn within us and upon us with such power that the devil and all his hordes will be like ashes under the soles of our feet!

It is almost unthinkable to them that such Glory and power could reside in and flow through the flesh-and-blood bodies of men and women. Yet the Bible tells us that's what will happen.

We've seen the beginning of this...on the Day of Pentecost. To grasp the impact of that day, you have to forget those Sunday school pictures depicting tiny flames hovering over the heads of the disciples. You need to get the images of God as described in Habakkuk 3:3-4, Ezekiel 1:1-28, and Malachi 4:1-3...you need the images of God's Glory as seen in His fire, His light, His magnificent brightness.

Go through these passages of Scripture and think about His blazing fire of Glory! Think on Ezekiel's description of God's Glory being a fire from the loins up and a fire from the loins down...and then you will realize what happened in the upper room in Acts 2.

God Himself came in!

Everything was shaken with such a great sound of wind that it sounded like a freight train coming through a tunnel. It was the Glory! It roared in and filled the whole room. Then a blazing fire appeared, and He sat on, or enveloped, each disciple one by one!

On that day, God was able to at last embrace His people. They'd been washed in the blood of Jesus. Sin had been defeated at Calvary. They'd been reborn and made righteous with God's own righteousness. So He could come to them without any cloud, without any covering of any kind. He could come to them as His own Glorious Self! He came on them and into them.

Now it is our time to walk in that brighter-than-sunlight, radiating, fiery power that is so pure and full of the presence of God that the devil can't withstand it. It is God's plan for us to walk in the light as He is in the light, to walk in the Glory as He is in the Glory (1 John 1:5-7).

It is time for us to shine! He's equipped us to do it here and now. So stretch your capacity to conceive and to believe. Study what the Word says about the Glory. Make it your aim to walk in the light as God is in the light. Believe...and you shall surely see the Glory of God.

Speak the Word: I walk in the light, as He is in the light. I walk in the Glory, as He is in the Glory. (1 John 1:7)
