God’s Glory Requires Change!

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Never be friends with the “same”, be friends with “change”. When we are friends with the same, some people fade away. Because they expect you, to remain the same. But the glory changes you, from glory to glory.

Conclusively, don’t stay friends with the monotonous. But, instead, remain friends with those subject to change, with the GLORY IN YOUR LIFE.

The GLORY demands CHANGE. Those who can’t accept it, remain friends with the SAME…EMBRACE THE GLORY and the consequences that come along with it. Those who are friends with the CHANGE WILL REMAIN…Selah

  2. Be ye not conformed to the ways of the world but rather transformed by the renewing of thy mind. Faith comes by hearing; hearing by the Word of God.

  3. Thank you for liking one of my posts. It was the one about the Tortoise and Achilles.

    Though, I’m not sure if this is correct. I think the Proverbs say, “Do not be given unto change.” God likes it when we are consistent with our behavior. When we develop routines, and we are faithful.

    Change is a force antithetical to the Christian because God never changes. Unless it’s turning away from sin, which might be the kind of change you mean—but it’s a little vague—I think we have to be careful saying that change is good.

    • B.K., repentance is all about change. We are to turn from doing things our way to changing our hearts to do the will of Father God.

      Proverbs 24:20For the evil man has no future; the lamp of the wicked will be extinguished. 21My son, fear the LORD and the king and do not associate with the rebellious. 22For those two will bring sudden destruction; who knows what ruin they can bring?…
      (BSB) 21 My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change: (KJV)

      This passage is speaking of rebellion against God and the king. When you look at the Bible, good change is there throughout the whole book.

      This post is about the Glory of God and how it changes you. In the original language, Hebrew, glory, means the presence of God and honor and respect. We are told that God inhabits the praises of his people. We do not leave the presence of God unchanged.

      Moses in Exodus 3 was herding sheep in the desert. God met him in a burning bush that was not consumed. He was given instructions to go to Egypt, to the leaders of the Hebrew people and tell Pharaoh to let his people leave Egypt. Live made a dramatic change for Moses and for the Hebrew slaves. Moses was called a friend of God, who met with Him, face to face. His life was forever changed. When he died at age 120, Deuteronomy 34:7, says his eye was not dim and nor had his natural force abated. Moses and his life in God’s Glory demonstrates a major change from being in the glory of God.

      Jesus the Christ spent much time in the Glory of God. On the Mount of Transfiguration, the Glory of God came down. A cloud surrounded him and God the Father said, “this is my Beloved Son, hear him.” The Bible says that the face of Jesus shone. He then cast an evil spirit out of a boy who had seizures. The life of this boy and his family were changed. The lives of the disciples were changed because they left everything and followed Jesus.

      Saul of Tarsus was a devout, religious Jew and was killing Christians. He had a life-changing experience on the road to Damascus, where he met Jesus the Christ. His life was radically changed.

      We all need God. When we experience his Glory, we are changed. God does not want empty religious routines but he wants us to be changed from the inside, and to live differently. The Glory of God not only means his presence but honor and respect. We respect God by spending time with him and allowing him to change our hearts and how we live.

  4. Yep. Write like that.

    “He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me. God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.”
