Re 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

2Co 3:18 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.

The Christian Life by design is one of ever increasing glory

Pr 4:18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

It is the process of ever decreasing and ever increasing.

Joh 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

The Life of Christ ever increasing in the life of the believer, The vine life flowing through the branch in greater and fuller and richer presence and power.

In Jn 15:1-7 it is the life of progression from bringing forth fruit, to more fruit, to much fruit.

This is the design of God for every believer, The life of ever increasing glory = growing from one stage of Christ likeness to another. = From Level of glory to level of glory,

Till like Paul we are able to say:

Ga 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Youngs literal translation:

20 with Christ I have been crucified, and live no more do I, and Christ doth live in me;

The glory of a thing is in how truly it reveals or represents it’s author or creator

The closer to the original or the author is the representation the greater is the glory of the thing.

Jesus is the original Son, As we grow into his image and likeness we are moving from glory to glory, The more truly we represent him, and manifest him to the world, The greater is the glory that we bring to the Father.

#1 We must see to be.

Beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord.

There must be a beholding, there must be a deliberate setting of our attention upon the Lord Jesus Christ.

Col 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

(Come up hither ). This is the summons of the Spirit to the body of Christ,

Re 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

#2 In order to move to the next level we must be more than involved we must be committed.

The Work of the Spirit in our Lives is in 3 Stages

#1 Manifesting himself to us #2 Manifesting himself in us # Manifesting himself through us

The general population of the church is satisfied to see a manifestation of Gods power

Gods desire is for you to be a Manifestation of his power.

Ro 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

It doesn’t take any commitment to see a manifestation of the glory of God, You only need to be present = involved.
