Straight Talk…God’s Glory & Light, by Rodna Epley

No Comment Yet

Rodna“Light” is a beautiful description! And biblical. In fact, God’s glory is on the light spectrum and higher even than military grade radiation. The Glory is not even on our charts because we can’t measure it or perceive it through natural means. The glory’s transforming power is able to bust through the toughest cancer or illness or even death and immediately zap and dispel the darkness!

The Bible says God’s glory is so much higher than anything we have ever known or seen or can comprehend with our minds that it actually has an “eternal weight”! Wow! What is an eternal weight?! And I thought a 2-ton elephant was heavy! Can you wrap your mind around an eternal weight of glory?! I can’t.

2 Corinthians 4:17 says it like this…For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison…

Romans 8:18 says…For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
God always uses what He calls “honest scales”. And all throughout His Word He asks us to do the same. Since we can’t comprehend the value of something that is part of Him (and if we can’t comprehend, it doesn’t become a part of us). God asks us to weigh or measure that unknown thing against something we do know the weight or measurement of. Then we in turn can know the weight of the unknown thing. Or at least have some sort of idea. So in the case of cancer, if we’ve experienced it, then we know it’s horrendous, heavy and scary weight. But Romans 8:18 Paul is implying that any suffering we have is so insignificant compared to the weight of God’s glory that we have absolutely nothing to fear. His glory will zap it out instantly while at the same time restore us to health.

In His glory is also healing since Romans 4:24, 6:4 says it was the “glory of the Father” that raised Jesus from the dead!

Romans 4:24…but for ours also. It will be counted to us who believe in him who raised from the dead Jesus our Lord…

Romans 6:4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.

Light

God uses physical examples in all Jesus’ parables in attempt to get us to comprehend the hidden things of God. The idea of God’s glory is something we can’t fathom. He created the universe through it after all. The first thing He commanded in Genesis was “let there be light”. Then the light from His glory manifested at His spoken Word. So the Word is the activating agent of His manifested glory!

About Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is a Speech Pathologist and home health provider. The majority of his work focuses on swallowing disorders in neurologically impaired patients. He has been a business owner for the past 18 years. Paul earned his BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Oklahoma State University. His MA was completed in Speech Pathology at Oklahoma State University. When Paul’s son was born prematurely in 2003, there was lots of support from family and friends. Keeping up with phone calls was too much. So he provided e-mails with updates on health and well-being. In time, his son was healthy and came home. The e-mails stopped but Paul was encouraged to keep writing. Three years later, Paul was asked to assist in writing a Sunday school curriculum. The lessons were well received by the local body and on the church website. Again, he was encouraged to keep writing. Next, Paul taught a Sunday School class for junior high and high school students. He would share notes with others from the class he was teaching. In 2010, a young man at a local church encouraged Paul to start a blog. The website focuses on topical studies such as creation, God’s Appointed Holidays and Feasts, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, end times prophecy, ancient Hebrew cultural customs, the Prophet Isaiah, and various topical studies. Three years later, Paul’s 10 year old son told me, “Dad, you need to do updates on how the news is tied to the Bible.” The “Trend Update” was born. Since then, traffic on the website doubled in each of the next two years. Exposure continues to grow and increase from the previous year as of 2016. In the spring of 2016, a friend and fellow Boy Scout father encouraged Paul to start a YouTube channel. His friend thought it was a natural fit considering the content and subscribers from the website. The videos and written posts have been well received. Between the blog and YouTube channel, God’s prophetic words have reached over 190 countries. Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Friends and family help and support the blog and YouTube channel with content ideas. There is too much happening in relation to Bible prophecy for one person to follow and command the events of our day. That same Boy Scout father would later introduce Paul to the movies of Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project… Guest speak and presenter duties have focused on the topics of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in God’s Appointed Spring Feasts, Mystery Babylon, the antichrist, Ezekiel 38-39, and current events related to Bible prophecy. At this time, Paul would like to encourage each individual to learn about who God is. Because one way or another, we are all eternal. The issue is our destiny.
