NEVER - ENDING GLORY.

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*


*NEVER-ENDING GLORY*


*Scripture Treasure.*

Numb 23:10 *Who can count the dust of Jacob, and the number of the fourth part of Israel? Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his!*


*Insight and Highlight.*

There is a never-ending glory for the righteous. For the wicked, it is only for a short time. His glory fades away.


*Scripture Commentaries.*

Everyone and everything God creates has a glory, lsaiah 43:7, 1 Cor 15: 41.

Glory fades away, can be restored, and can be unending.

In other words, a person's glory can outlive him

God blessed Abraham and his future Gen 28:14.

Though Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are dead and long gone, their future was blessed, and the glory that still radiates in their death is far-reaching and everlasting.

Balaam wished his end would be like Israel’s. It is strange how a person could wished he died like someone else.

He wished so because he said Israel was righteous.

A descendant in posterity is the offspring of a progenitor, and he could continue to enjoy great prosperity because of the glory his progenitor had when he was alive

This means that, though a person could die but all his future generations could continue to enjoy his prosperity.

With Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as progenitors, we, as their afterward offspring (that is, descendants in posterity), are blessed.

We are multiplied and more blessed than they were in their lifetimes.

This is an unending glory.

An unending glory occurs when, though a person is dead, his glory is still reflected, attimes more profounding when he is gone.

This is why attimes, a great man of substance or an inventor, though dead, his estate may still profit in a trademark, patent, and innovation that will continue to make great economic, social, and financial impact through many generations.

This is why some people, long after their death, may still be making money.

Forbes records of a US music entertainer who has made a whooping $100 million dollars since his death from record labels, royalties, etc.

There are female children, though married, who refuse to change the names of their sage fathers because of the glory the names carried in their fathers' lifetime.

More importantly, however, is the glory of the righteous.

Though there are heathen people with glory in their lifetimes but their children are still enjoying such glory, but this only lasts for this world only.

Those who die in the Lord will not only enjoy the glory of their progenitors when they were alive but also in Heaven.

Paul and John say there is still a glory to be revealed in us, Rom 8:18, 1 John 3:2.

The righteous have hope in death.

Proverbs 14:32 says, *"...the righteous hath hope in his death.*

Psalm 37:37 encourages us to live righteously. It says there is a future for the righteous, the man of peace. *Consider the blameless and observe the upright, for posterity awaits the man of peace.*

Abraham and others in the hallmark of faith have died in the Lord, but their glories are unending.

More important is the glory we have in Jesus.

John testified of Jesus in John 17:22 when He said: *The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one.*

Your glory will not end here on earth. It will only get better in eternity, but have you beheld the glory of the Father in Jesus?

You can not have any glory how much more an unending glory if you have not beheld the glory of the Father in Jesus now!


*Remorse corner.*

The glory of the righteous is unending, 1 Pet 1:4.


*Call to Word action.*

His present glory can not be compared with the glory that shall be revealed because we will be like Him.

1 John 3:2 *Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.*


*The Christian clarion duty.*

As a righteous, you are assured the unending glory. Do not lose it.


*Prayer.*

Lord, help me to enjoy the ending glory in Christ Jesus.


Good morning all, and have a blessed day today.


God bless you.
