Do you want to see God’s glory? Look at Christ. He is the “brightness of God’s glory and express image of His person.”(Heb.1:3 NKJV). In the Old Testament, the Shekinah glory was the visible evidence of God’s presence in the Tabernacle. It is still here today, in the person of Christ. John 1:14 says, “we beheld His glory.” John says that he beheld such glory that could only be attributed to “the only begotten Son of God.”
Just like the sun rays pierce through the clouds, to ignite and light up the earth with brilliance and brightness, Jesus is the “brightness of God’s glory.” He reveals Almighty God in His fullness, we just have to look at Him. Christ is the light that shines in our darkened hearts (2 Cor.4:6). It is through Him we have the true knowledge of God and His glory (1John 5:20). Light was produced first during creation, and the light of Christ is the first thing that beams in its brightness in the new creation.
We need the eyes of the Spirit to behold the things of the Spirit. It is through God’s gift of faith we see the fullness of God’s glory. To see the true beauty in anything, you have to discern it. The true beauty of Christ can not bee seen with the natural eyes. To behold the glory of God you must have spiritual eye sight. It is through Christ we see God in His fullness, there is no other way.
