The Realm of Glass

Apostle Grace Lubega

2 Corinthians 3:18(KJV); But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Glory cannot be beheld through human lenses. As such, God has given to us an eternal lens, the realm of glass [the Word] which magnifies the reality of spiritual and divine things.

There are men who have studied the scriptures diligently and became atheists for it.

The issue was how they looked into that realm.

How does this lens work?

The Word is spirit and life (John 6:33).

So how do you read spirit? How do you look through the lines of the Bible and see spiritual substance?

Our theme scripture teaches that it is by the Spirit of the Lord.

Studying the Word through human lenses/eyes will cause you to erroneously attach a physical form to spiritual substance [in the mind that the physical gives reality to the spiritual] and thus ascribe limitation and weakness to what is essentially eternal and limitless in nature.

On the other hand, studying the Word by the eyes/lenses of THE SPIRIT will cause you to behold the spiritual reality of these things before your intellect reconciles them with the physical.

Take an example of how we behold the characters in the Bible.

The scriptures say, “wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know him no more” (2 Corinthians 5:16).

The Amplified rendering is, “From now on we estimate and regard no one from a [purely] human point of view.”

In other words, what is the spiritual identity of these men in the Bible?

When the prophets looked at Elijah, they only saw him as the master of Elisha because of how they looked into that realm of glass (2 Kings 2:3).

But Elisha, because he looked into the realm with a different lens saw him as the CHARIOT of Israel and its horsemen thereof (2 Kings 2:12).

So you must ask questions like; who is Paul in the spirit? What is the Spirit of Christ?

When Jesus asks his disciples, “who do you say I am?”(Matthew 16:15-17), He was testing their understanding of this reality.

Deeper than that, the Bible calls you a written epistle (2 Corinthians 3:2).

By this qualification, you are part of that realm of glass.

When it says you are read by all men, this is not a physical reading, it is spiritual!

As you behold in the glass, you understand your true spiritual identity, the glory upon your life and the crown on your head. Hallelujah!

GOLDEN NUGGET:
Glory cannot be beheld through human lenses. As such, God has given to us an eternal lens, the realm of glass [the Word] which magnifies the reality of spiritual and divine things.

PRAYER: God, today I thank you that you open my eyes and cause me to see these things. I see through the glass of the Word and behold the glory of God. I am translated in the name of Jesus. Father, like you killed a certain sight in Paul and gave him true eternal vision, do the same for me this day. Kill my flesh towards anything worldly and open my soul to eternal things. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
