The Following post is a joint effort and another small excerpt from my upcoming book on Divine Relationships. The post includes a major contribution from my close friend and business partner, Thomas Devick. I hope you enjoy our joint effort to give more clarity and definition to the topic of what Jesus had desires for us in Divine Relationships. Pray it is a blessing to you. Enjoy the Journey!

GLORY, HONOR, AND POWER BELONG TO WHOM?

Just wanted to pass on a concept that has been building in my spirit over the last few months.

Revelation 19, Says:

Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God!

And Jesus says all things that have been given to him, are ours in His name Hebrews 12:1-3 (we being his brothers and sisters, and an intimate part of His eternal family). Therefore these qualities are a part of our divine spiritual DNA as well.

And much of the sin in our lives (that continually dogs our steps, and tangles up our feet–) resides in our failure to experience this realm. When we fail to pursue this realm whole heartedly, even ferociously, and thus fail to freely abide in this realm which can and should be our dominating force and identity linking us to our heavenly nature and eternal family, we miss out on so much the Father has desired to give us.

The option of not being demonstrably linked to our heavenly and eternal nature, is that we are dominated by our earthly, carnal nature, that has not been redeemed, renewed, transformed, or set free. Our default nature is still living in the place of bondage, captivity, with brokenness of heart (Isaiah 61:1-3), which includes, confusion, depression, ego, pride, anger, bitterness, jealousy, entitlement or worse), and this is our default nature when we walk in the unbelief, and choose to refuse to enter into the full realm of who He really is, and who we really are.

Instead of continually renewing our minds in the realm of Glory, Honor and Power … we often have many replacement ideas, fancies, pursuits, and habits (e.g., movies, videos, novels, TV, hobbies, etc.) that draw us away from His Glory and consume our time and attention away from our divine calling, and that seems to push us out of our eternal inheritance, and position of ruling and reigning with Christ in heavenly places. As a result, we don’t often represent our King and Heavenly Lord as well as He deserves, and don’t communicate His Love, Grace and Mercy, and His Powerful Leadership and Blessings as we have been ordained and commissioned to do. This leaves us empty and devoid of the powerful intimacy He has provided for us.

The awesome and wonderful good news is this is a completely correctable condition. Jesus has provided us full access to His glory, His Honor and His Power! Due to our place in Him we are invited to enjoy glory in our relationship with Him as well as with one another. Truly, we are changed by our communion with Jesus as well as the Divine Connections He places us in.

May the LORD of Glory, Honor, and Power draw us into our full inheritance in Him. Amen!

Love to you in Jesus Christ.
