Symbolism and Reality
Birth of a Fertile Garden
One on one time
Showing the glory of God
The Desert Wanderer
“1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. 2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the LORD, and the excellency of our God.”
Understanding the glory of God
“God’s glory is the sum total of who God is, and who God is; is defined by His attributes.”
“6 Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; 7 who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations."
Being glory Declarers
In the Old Testament you primarily have the declaration of creation.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”
Christ is the fuller expression of the glory of God
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
“6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.”
God's glory is preeminent
God’s glory is His essence and best seen in His attributes
Creation to a smaller degree and Jesus in a much richer way are the manifestations of His glory.
Jesus reveals this through grace and truth; by His teaching and His works; which is by His very life so that to see Jesus is to see the glory of God.
“12 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. 13 "Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 "If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.”
