Suffering For God’s Glory… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , on July 29, 2020 by paulthepoke

All suffering is meant for God’s glory. Whether we caused the suffering, someone else did, or it’s no one’s fault, suffering is suffering and it’s always meant for God’s glory to SOON be revealed. Suffering is not meant to be held onto for life. It’s meant for God’s glory to be released and revealed on earth in the realms in which He has assigned us to operate in and live in, which means the suffering ends and the promise of God is revealed and manifested in THIS life.

The longest time-frame from the examples that we have in the Bible that Jesus waited to turn a suffering into glory was four days when He purposely waited to raise Lazarus from the dead.

Most of the sufferings He encountered were transformed into glory within a few moments of encountering them, e.g., turning water to wine, opening blind eyes, straightened a crooked back, healing leprosy, walking on water, causing a paralyzed man to walk, raising the dead, etc.

If anyone has been sick or hurting for a long time, it’s okay, there’s no condemnation for those who are in Christ (Romans 8:1). The people in the Bible whom Jesus encountered were usually sick and hurting for a long time until He encountered them. But once He encountered them they were almost instantly well or the problem was almost instantly flipped.

Think of the time when someone was trying to accuse Jesus of not paying taxes to Caesar. Jesus had Peter go catch a fish out of the water. The first fish he caught had a coin in its mouth that was enough to pay taxes for both Jesus and Peter. So the time it took Peter to catch the first fish was how long it took the suffering to turn to glory.

So it doesn’t matter how long we’ve suffered. We only need revelation of the Word of God from the Holy Spirit that we are healed, or He has supplied all of our needs, etc. Then when we act on the instructions given to us by the Holy Spirit or we speak the anointed words the Holy Spirit gives us to say, our miracle manifests or our need is supplied in the natural. Remain in the Word and let His Word remain in you and your Father will give you the revelation so that you can act on it. Don’t worry, it will come. When it comes, you will know.

Most Christians have had encounters with the Holy Spirit where we’ve experience miracles in our lives, but they are usually hit or miss and we don’t really know how to encounter Him again. Knowing that Jesus went to be with the Father and that we are seated in heavenly places in Him, in Christ, right now in the place where He is that He prepared for us changes this hit or miss into a permanent residence. It changes a believer into a disciple. It changes only sometimes having joy and peace to always having it. It locks us down in Him and fastens us in permanently. It changes not knowing what to do to completely trusting that our heavenly Father will show us and guide us because He loves us in the very same way He loves Jesus, and He proves it by backing up our words and works which manifest in the natural because the two became one like hydrogen and oxygen (two gases) make a physical property: water. When what the Holy Spirit speaks and what we speak are done together for any situation, it manifests in the natural.

The Perfect One is the Father and the Father was Jesus’ destination. He’s our destination too and it’s now. We are seated in Christ who is in the Father now, not someday after we die, and Christ is in us now and the Father is in Christ now. We are One with them now. Christ is in us and we are in Christ—full circle back to the Father. From this perspective everything in our lives change and transform.

Blessings to everyone. May the perfect peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. May all your suffering turn to glory in this life. It pleases our Father in heaven for suffering to end and His glory to be revealed. It is His will.

Psalm 91… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , on July 16, 2020 by paulthepoke

Hi everyone! Here is Psalm 91 in prayer form for anyone feeling fear over this pandemic. Know that our Father in heaven (your Creator) loves you more than you can imagine… 💕. He promises to rescue and protect you. You will see His glory transform this condition. Pray this out loud and give thanks to Him that He has already provided us the victory in Christ Jesus who is sitting at the Father’s right hand of glory and power. We too are seated right now in Christ where He is completely victorious over every form of darkness. Just knowing this raises you up above all enemies, which includes weapons (viruses) of the enemy. Anything under Christ’s feet is also under your feet if you have put your faith in Jesus. Blessings to you and have no fear. Trust Him and declare this…

“My home is in the secret place of the Most High so I live under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver me from the trap of the hunter and from the perilous pandemic (or epidemic).

He shall cover me with His feathers, and under His wings I shall take shelter; His truth shall be my shield and protector.

I shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the deadly (viral) pandemic that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that destroys at noonday.

…it shall not come near me (or those I love and pray for, or those who live in the realm in which God has assigned me to operate in and live in).

Only with my eyes shall I look and see the reward of the wicked.

Because I have made the LORD, who is my shelter, even the Most High, the place where I live, no evil shall happen to me, nor shall any plague come near my home;

For He shall give His angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways. In their hands they shall hold me up, so that I don’t strike my foot against a stone.

I shall tread upon the lion and the cobra; the young lion and the serpent I shall trample underfoot.

My Father said about me, “Because he (she) has set his (her) love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.”

Jesus Our Peace Offering… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , on June 3, 2020 by paulthepoke

Yes and amen! The yeast of the Father’s glory is in the bread of life, and it greatly multiplies all that it’s worked into. Jesus is our Peace Offering.

Leviticus 7:11-15 “And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings that one may offer to the LORD. If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the thanksgiving sacrifice unleavened loaves mixed with oil, unleavened wafers smeared with oil, and loaves of fine flour well mixed with oil. With the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving he shall bring his offering with loaves of leavened bread. And from it he shall offer one loaf from each offering, as a gift to the LORD. It shall belong to the priest who throws the blood of the peace offerings. And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten on the day of his offering. He shall not leave any of it until the morning.

In the peace offering are both kinds of bread. The kind without yeast that puts to death the old nature within us (the dying of Christ—Christ in us—the hope of glory), and the kind with yeast, the good yeast of the kingdom of heaven that brings to life the new nature (the life of Christ—us in Christ).

2 Corinthians 5:21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

He is our Lord of glory transforming our minds and multiplying, rising up within us, exiting our mouths in creative authority, beaming forth as radiating light, and exploding in manifested glory that transforms every dark condition around us into light! (Colossians 1:27; 1 Corinthians 2:7-8, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Hebrews 4:12, et. al.)

Thank You Father for Your wisdom!
Thank You Father for Your favor!
Thank You Father that Jesus gave us the same glory You gave Him and that He had with You before the world was!

So be it and let it be so! 🙏 ☀️❤️

“The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough.” (Matthew 13:33)

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp-stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16)

God’s Glory in the Midst of Fear… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , on May 14, 2020 by paulthepoke

The devil likes to threaten and cause fear, but the glory of God is always eternally greater than anything the enemy can throw at us. All suffering is meant for one thing: God’s glory (Romans 8:18). His glory isn’t in the suffering; His glory is on the other side of it.

Photo: Rodna Epley

The cloud in this photo could have been a ferocious tornado that dropped down out of the sky right in the center of Yukon, OK like 4 years ago. It was swirling and ominous. So I did what any normal Okie would do. I stopped my car and got out to take a picture. I knew the tornado was impotent because I could see the glory of God all around it. There was no power to the threat, making it no threat at all in my eyes. There even appears to be an angel right in the center of it; although, I just noticed that after all these years.

This is how we should view every threat that comes to us: in light of the Father’s glory which has an eternal weight and can flip any negative condition like a pancake. There is no actual threat at all because nothing can compare to His glory. But God wants us to compare stuff to His glory as long as we use His accurate weights and honest scales (Proverbs 16:11), because that’s how we end the threat or suffering.

With His glory on one side of the honest scales and the threat on the other side, the threat immediately leaves. Like a skinny kid on a teeter totter, when the Hulk plops down on the other side, the skinny kid goes soaring through the air far far away never to be seen again. So when we use accurate weights and God’s honest scales in any situation, the only one that remains is the Hulk.

“Honest weights and scales are the Lord’s; all the weights in the bag are His work.” – Proverbs 16:11

This is how God’s promises work on our behalf. The promise needs to be revealed to you by the Holy Spirit (Rhema Word; John 16:13-15). You’re reading the Word and say “Wow! I never saw that before!” and His Presence of hope, love, joy, and especially perfect peace accompanies the discovery—that’s a Rhema (revealed) Word. If you couple that with 1 or 2 other witnesses (similar promises in the Word; 2 Corinthians 13:1), and then you speak out those promises while watching for the situation to change because you are trusting in the glory of His Word to accomplish what He promised, then He WILL turn that trouble into glory and cause you to overcome. And He will do it shortly.

This is a promise from our Father in heaven to those who are in blood covenant relationship with Him in Christ. He will ALWAYS hear you and answer if you do this. Be sure to NOT mix it with negative doubtful words. It must be pure. But He will not fail you.

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” – 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be (is soon to be, about to be) revealed in us.” – Romans 8:18

“But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.” – Ephesians 5:13

The Bread of Life and Marriage… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 22, 2020 by paulthepoke

It takes both a negative and positive battery cable to jump start an engine with a dead battery. Most Christians only have the negative side hooked up, Christ in them—the hope of glory. Christ in them is the dying of Christ that puts to death the old nature. Yet even that doesn’t work until the positive side is hooked up that brings to life the new nature. The negative side is Christ in us. He is our hope of glory. The positive side is us in Christ. He is our Lord of glory. The glory of the Father raised Jesus from the dead. The same glory raised us too.

We eat that same bread of life when we take communion. Jesus is our peace offering and He is both kinds of bread. He’s the unleavened bread that puts to death the old nature and He’s the leavened bread that brings to life the new nature. But we can’t stop at the resurrection. We must have the image and revelation that we are seated in Christ and in the Father now.

Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman takes and works into 3 measures of flour until it forms into dough. What happens to dough when it has good active yeast in it? It rises! It multiplies! It makes a few fish and a few loaves of bread feed 5,000+ people on a hillside. It turns water to wine. The yeast of the Father’s glory raised the Bread of Life.

We are His disciples, following Him, being transformed into the image of the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. From glory level to glory level we are transfigured into glory until we are wearing the full wedding garment of Christ which is life and immortality that came to light through the Gospel. We wear always eternal life, Zoe life, and the “never die”, the “cannot be corrupted”, the “deathless”.

The Bible says the Father created us for glory and honor. Psalm 91 and all through the old and new testaments are images of this wedding garment of Christ which is the activated state of the Father’s glory that we are to “live in”. From the beginning God created us for glory, to be in the image of his glory. The wedding garment of Christ, Joseph’s coat of many colors, the robe of righteousness, the armor of light, the garment of praise, and many more images are all the same thing! It’s the activated state of the Father’s glory that He has always wanted us to live in permanently! These are his real sons!

The evidence that we have on the wedding garment of Christ is perfect peace, perfect love, joy unspeakable existing in our lives; it is especially evident in storms. His glory is that “in Christ” position that all true disciples have. A believer is to wedding as a disciple is to marriage. We don’t get to date Christ off and on when He’s convenient.

Being a disciple is living in the activated state of the Father’s glory “in Christ” all the time, following Him, receiving revelation, being transformed into His image of glory, and releasing God’s glory in the earth realm where He transforms every dark condition into light. The Father takes over every realm on earth. His glory fills the earth through us! Sickness, disease, corona virus, deformities, sin, corruptness, are all meant for His glory and it all disappears as we release His glory! It’s replaced by health, life forevermore, immortality, obedience, perfect peace, perfect love, tremendous joy, etc.

There are many ways we can release His glory. Speaking the words we hear the Holy Spirit speak. Doing the works we see the Holy Spirit do. Declaring the revealed (Rhema) Word. Praise. Worshiping the Father in Spirit and in truth. Taking communion. Praying in the Spirit are some of the ways. All of these things also increase more of His power and authority in our lives. They increase and expand the realm on earth that the Father has given us to operate in. It’s our sandbox. He widens the tent pegs of our realms where we are kings and priests in His temple. Each widening is a promotion in glory. 2 Corinthians 3:18.

Revelation 3:20 “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, we have to start realizing who we are. ❤️

In Christ… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , on April 8, 2020 by paulthepoke

Get caught up in the rivers of living water that Jesus gives. These are streams of the Father’s glory. To be received by all and released by all who are called by His name.

Galatians 3:28 There is no male or female in Christ, no Jew nor Greek, no slave nor free, but all are ONE in Christ.

“In Christ” is the key. It means the activated state of the Father’s glory. All wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of His glory, all favor, blessing, perfect peace, perfect love, joy unspeakable and full of glory is available in His Presence.

It begins by knowing Jesus went to be with the Father and we are seated in Christ now. We are where He is right now—not someday. In Christ is where we all should want to be. It’s where we were all created to be even as we walk this earth. It is our home.

Many Christians have invited Christ to be in them, but they have not yet accepted the key to His place and stepped into Christ. Because the gospel everywhere has mostly fallen short of the glory—it has stopped after the resurrection. But the full gospel ascends all the way back up to the Father where Jesus sits as King of glory on the throne of glory. And we are seated in Him as joint heirs of glory. We are heirs now, not someday. Jesus already died to make it possible. If we truly accepted His ONE death, we don’t have to die too to make it effective. It’s effective now. We have been given the very same glory Jesus has always had with the Father (carefully read Jesus’ prayer of John 17). And the Father loves us in the very same way He loves Jesus. He proves it by always hearing us and always answering our prayers and declarations. Our words always manifest. Our works always prosper. Because we are ONE with His glory. Jesus reconciled us to the Father now.

Jesus prayed, “And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was…that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us…And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me. (John 17:5,22-24)

It is so important to know that Jesus went to be with the Father, and that the place He made for us is with the Father NOW, not someday after we die. All we have to do is know this and we have access to the “greater works” Jesus promised we would operate in. The greater works is anything you can imagine while in Christ. This is what Jesus always tried to teach us, but his disciples didn’t begin to understand until the end (John 16:25-30).

Corona Virus Whaaat??? Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , , on March 25, 2020 by paulthepoke

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall (soon) be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18)

“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him.” (John 9:1-3)

All suffering is meant for one thing: God’s glory to be revealed NOW. Which means whatever dark or negative situation exists that we face is going to be exposed to the light as God’s glory is released out of us and into the situation where it is transformed into light (health etc).

We can’t blame God for suffering. We can technically only blame ourselves for not releasing God’s glory. But God doesn’t even want us to blame ourselves. He just wants us to know, so that we can release Him into our situations.

As widely spread as corona virus is, it tells us one thing: that God wants His glory widespread throughout the whole earth. If a single blind man’s condition was meant for God’s glory to manifest (by giving him eyes that see) then just think how much the Father wants His glory manifested where corona virus is concerned.

God didn’t created the virus, the devil did. But God is going to use it to reveal His glory. Yet He chooses to reveal His glory through His sons and daughters of glory. That’s you and me and all who are called by His name. The Father will gladly and willingly wipe out corona, but are we willing to let Him? Are we willing to do our part of the equation? He cleans the whole house but as His children we have to clean up our one bedroom. The blind man was healed by Jesus. Corona victims are cured and corona is wiped out by those Jesus sends.

“Jesus said…Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. Most assuredly, 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 My Father.” (John 14:11-12)

“For the earth will be filled
With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
As the waters cover the sea.” (Habakkuk 2:14)

“Awake, my glory!
Awake, lute and harp!
I will awaken the dawn.” (Psalm 57:8)

“Awake, O sleeper,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.” (Ephesians 5:14)

Thank You Father for Your wisdom. Thank You Father for Your favor. Thank You Father that Your glory spreads eternally faster than any virus the enemy can make. In Jesus’ name, so be it and let it be so.

Dear Bride of Christ: Resurrection… Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Resurrection, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , on March 11, 2020 by paulthepoke

rodnalightJesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live (Resurrection Christian—he dies and lives again). And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die (Living Christian—he lives and never dies). Do you believe this?” – John 11:25-26

Are you a Resurrection Christian who dies and lives again? Or are you a living Christian who lives and never dies?

jesus resurrection“Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.
O Death, where is your sting?
O Hades, where is your victory?” – 1 Corinthians 15:51-55

We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.
∞∞∞
All those who are in Christ are in the activated state of the Father’s glory. That’s what “in Christ” means. From this perfect position in the Father, who is the perfect one in us, the Bride is also made perfect. She is transformed (transfigured) into the image of the glory of her Lord Jesus Christ. All of these images (and more) throughout the Bible are the same thing—the activated state of the Father’s glory:

In Christ
• Put on Christ
• Put on the armor of light
• Put on the robe of righteousness
• Put on the garment of praise
• Put on the wedding garment
• Put on the coat of many colors
• Put on immortality

Expect the activated state of the Father’s glory in you and on you because Jesus restored us to the Father in Himself NOW… not some day after we die.

Christ is in us—the hope of glory. We all believe that. But how many people know we also must step into Christ—where He is our Lord of glory? We do that simply by knowing Jesus went to be with the Father. We now have access to greater works. Christ (the activated state of the Father’s glory) is in us and we are in Christ. We have the “shine on”! We are the light of the world as Jesus said we are. From the position of the Father we have access to “greater works”. Our minds are transformed from this position.

Without knowing this we don’t grow very quickly at all. We still act like the world because we aren’t connected to the transforming power of Christ which puts to death the old nature and brings to life the new.

“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” – John 3:8

Well whoever is born of the Spirit DOES know where the wind comes from and where it’s going. It comes from the Father of glory and it goes back to the Father of glory! So does everyone born of the Spirit!

Jesus said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture” – John 10:9

In and out of what? In and out of the Father’s Presence as we release His glory in the earth realm through our words and works we say and do that match the Father’s! Technically we speak and do what the Holy Spirit says and does, because the Holy Spirit declares to us all that Jesus has and all that Jesus has is everything the Father has, because the Father gave everything He has (which is Himself and all things possible, including the resurrection and the life) to Jesus, the Son of His love. But the Father loves us in the very same way He loves Jesus (John 17:23). Now we’re all sons of His love, and “it’s time to wake up” and “shine”!

Blessings to you Bride of Christ. Come out of darkness and into His glorious light…the Father and Jesus love you as ONE and there is absolutely no condemnation for those who are in Christ.

(“It’s Time to Wake Up” is a prophetic command phrase given to Larry Thompson by the Holy Spirit to wake up the body of Christ. I borrowed it. The Holy Spirit gave me the command “Shine!” along with a vision that prompted this writing.)

Jesus, The Way to The Father -Rodna Epley

rodnalight“Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. Most assuredly, 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 My Father.” – John 14:11-12

He who believes (aka whosoever) in Jesus will do the works we see Him do. Imagine all the works Jesus did in the Bible—we are to be doing those; AND greater works. The greater works come from the Father where Jesus went and where we are seated in Him.
∞∞∞
“I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father.” – John 16:28-30

jesus-right-hand-1

Jesus started with the Father and ended with the Father. He didn’t sit down on the ground outside the tomb after the resurrection. He sat down on the throne after He ascended to the Father’s right hand of glory where we are seated in Him NOW. Our perspective must change to where we sit now. Not from the earth as a victim looking up with only a hope of glory. But we are seated in Christ now in the Father looking down with all principalities and powers and rulers of darkness under our feet, victorious and able to go in and out of the Father’s Presence taking “home” with us everywhere we go in the realm Jesus has assigned us to operate in on earth. We do the works Jesus did and greater works (which is way more than saving people’s souls but it does include that) because The Father loves us in the very same way He loves Jesus. The words we speak and works we do are powered by the Father so they manifest and prosper where He sends them.
∞∞∞
“And raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,” – Ephesians 2:6

Where is Christ Jesus? In the Father! We are seated with Christ as joint-heirs.
∞∞∞
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. – John 14:6

Jesus is the Way to what? He is the Way to the Father. And He leads us there NOW, not after we die. He does lead us there after we die if we want to be a “Resurrection Christian”—Christ in us, the hope of glory. But if we want to be a “Living Christian” then we can go to the Father now—us in Christ, He is our Lord of glory. That’s what it means to be “in Christ”.

Dear Bride of Christ: It’s Time to Wake Up! And Shine! -Rodna Epley

Posted in #PaulthePoke, Rodna Epley with tags , , , , , on February 26, 2020 by paulthepoke

wake upDear Bride of Christ:

It’s Time to Wake Up! and Shine!

“Wake up O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” – Ephesians 5:14
∞∞∞
“Wake up My glory! Wake up psaltery and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.” – Psalm 57:8
∞∞∞
“Be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” – Matthew 5:48

The perfect one is the Father.
∞∞∞
“When that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.” – 1 Corinthians 13:10

The perfect one is the Father.
∞∞∞
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…We love Him because He first loved us.” –1 John 4:18-20

The perfect one is the Father.
∞∞∞
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. – Isaiah 26:3

The perfect one is the Father.
∞∞∞
“And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was…And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” – John 17:5, 22-23

Jesus gave us the same glory He had with the Father before the world was. Wow!
∞∞∞
“As Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.” – Ephesians 5:25b-27

Right now, the bride/church is old and wrinkly with lots of blemishes, still struggling with sin, and still dying off. She’s in covenant relationship so she will live again someday. But if she wakes up NOW instead of someday, Christ shines on her and she is able to put on immortality just as easily as she puts on her wedding garment.
∞∞∞
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed (transfigured) into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” – 2 Corinthians 3:18

rodnalight

The word transformed in the Greek is Strong’s 3339 metamorphoō, which is the same word transfigured found in Jesus’ transfiguration. This is the image we are being transformed into. Notice the glory of the Father present and how Jesus brought two men (Moses and Elijah) from heaven’s realm into earth’s realm momentarily, which is one of the “the powers of the age to come” from Hebrews 6:5.

Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him. – Matthew 17:1-3

Habakkuk 1:5 Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told. -LORD God
