NEW TESTAMENT

The angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth. To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her and said, Hail, thou art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women… Fear not, Mary; for thou hast found favor with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call his name Jesus – – – He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest . . .Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered – – – The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the Power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. (Luke 1:26-28, 30-32, 34-35)

The angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were afraid. The angel said unto them: Fear not behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day, in the city of David, a Savior, Which is Christ the Lord. This shall be a sign unto you: you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan, unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbade him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and cometh thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now; for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him. And, lo, a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. (Matthew 3:13- 17)

Jesus said, Fill the water pots. . . Draw now and bear unto the governor of the feast… When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine… he said, You have kept the good wine until now.

And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

The blind man said unto him, Lord that I might receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way. (Mark 10:51, 52)

What is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk? But that you may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house. And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. And they were all amazed, and they glorified God. (Luke 5:23-26)

This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. . . When Jesus came, he found that he (Lazarus) had lain in the grave four days already… said I not unto thee, that if you wouldest believe, you should see the glory of God?.. Lazarus come forth.

(Jesus said) I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out. (Luke 19:37, 38, 40)

They all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner. And Zacchaeus stood and said unto the Lord, Behold, Lord, the half of my goods, I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost. (Luke 19:7-10)

Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind . . . Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. (Luke 14:21, 23)

See this woman? I entered into your house, you gave me no water for my feet: but she has washed my feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. You gave me no kiss: but this woman, since the time I came in, hath not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil you did not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. Wherefore I say unto you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much. (Luke 7:44-47)

(Matthew 25: 42-46)

For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and you say, he hath a devil. The Son of man is come eating and drinking: and you say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners! But Wisdom is justified of all her children. (Luke 7:33, 34, 35)

Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up unto a high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. Behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias, talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: If you will let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he spoke, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and, behold, a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear you him. And when the disciples heard it they fell on their face, and were very afraid. And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, except Jesus only. (Matthew 17:1-6, 8)

Jesus said, I say unto you. Before Abraham was, I am. (John 8:58)

The supper being ended – – – He riseth from supper, laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel where with he was girded. (John 13:2, 4, 5)

So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said — If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; You also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily I say unto you, the servant is not greater than his lord, neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. If you know these things, happy are you if you do them. (John 13:12, 14-17)

Jesus lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: as you have given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as you have given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, Father, glorify thou me with thine own self, with the glory which I had with thee before the world was . . . And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: (John 17:1-5, 22)

And when they had sung a psalm, they went out into the mount of Olives. (Matthew 26:30)

For Jesus oftentimes resorted there with his disciples. (Luke 18:2)

Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and said unto his disciples, Sit here, while I go and pray yonder. He took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Then he said unto them, My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even unto death: wait here and watch with me. Then he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying… (Matthew 26:36-39)

Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony, he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. (Luke 22:42, 43, 44)

Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priest and Pharisees, came with lanterns and torches and weapons… Jesus said, Whom seek ye? They said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus said, I am he. And as soon as he said, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? (John 18:3,4,5,6,11)

Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? All this was done, that the scripture of the prophets might be fulfilled. (Matthew 26:53, 56)

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightening, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keeper did shake, and became as dead men. (Matthew 28:1-4)

And they entered in (the two Marys) and found not the body of the Lord Jesus . . . as they were much perplexed . . . behold, two men stood by in shining garments: and as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen! (Luke 24:3-6)

Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus, and stood in the midst, and said unto them. Peace be unto you. And when he had so said, he showed them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord. Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you; as My Father hath sent me, even so send I you. (John 20:19, 21)

To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion, by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God. (Acts 1:3)

And Jesus spoke unto them saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gotten all nations; and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. (Matthew 25:31-32)

You which have followed me, in the regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive a hundred fold, and shall inherit everlasting fife. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. (Matthew 19:28-30)

And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in the clouds, with great power and glory. . . For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch you therefore; for you know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cock crowing, or in the morning. And what I say unto you, I say unto all. Watch. (Mark 13:26, 34-37)

. . .but wait for the promise of the Father. . . for John truly baptized with water; but you shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost, not many days hence. You shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and you shall be witness unto me, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven, as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel: which also said, you men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen him go into heaven. (Acts 1:4, 5, 8-11)

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. Suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues, like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance . . . we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, . . . This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; and it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; and on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out, in those days, of my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. (Acts 2:1-4,11,14,16-18)

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ. Now when they heard him, they were pricked in their heart… what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand. (Acts 2:21, 36, 37, 38, 41)

By what power, or by what name have you done this? Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said. . . by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, who God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:7, 8, 10, 12)

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus… They called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered whether it be right to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together: and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and spoke the word of God with boldness. (Acts 4:13, 18, 19, 20,31)

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. And when they had called the apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ. (Acts 5:29, 40, 41, 42)

They that were scattered abroad, went everywhere preaching the word. (Acts 8:4)

But God forbid that I should glory, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me. And I unto the world. (Hebrew 6:11)

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons into glory. (Hebrews 2:9-10)

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the fight of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. (II Corinthians 4:6, 7)

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 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. (II Corinthians 3:17, 18)

Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: (Colossians 1:26,27)

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you; But rejoice, inasmuch as you are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, you may be glad also with exceeding joy. If you be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are you; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you. . . if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed,. but let him glorify God. (I Peter 4:12-14, 16)

Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. (Jude 24-25)

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and praise: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. (Revelation 4:11)

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. (Revelation 5:9)

After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me. What are these which are arrayed in white robes? And whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore, are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple.. And he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Revelation 7:9-17)

And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of ……. And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie; but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (Revelation 21:10, 11, 22-27)

And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. I Jesus have sent mine angel to tesfify unto you these things in the churches. Surely I come quickly, Amen . . . (Revelation 22:4, 16, 20)

There is no end to God’s glory, there is no limited supply, no life where the glory cannot be, no empty space that His glory will not fill. You can live in the glory of the Lord. From where you are now to where you can be . . . is possible; you can be changed from glory unto glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. Wherever you are — the Glory will be. (II Corinthians 3:18)

Remember there is one absolute, this is the ever present glory of the Lord! We see in the mirror not the depression of where one’s life is right now — but we see the glory of God, and are changed into the same image. Therefore, the only image we have the right to reflect —is His glory.

“The glory of the coming of the Lord is at hand.”
