Welcome to Healing Nexus. Still on unlocking the healing prowess in us, today we are treating KABOD.

Kabod is a Hebrew word which means ‘Glory‘. The reason why our God is a jealous God is that He won’t and doesn’t even like to share His Glory with anyone. The reason why He created you in His image and likeness is because of His glory. God will stop functioning as God the moment He starts sharing His glory with any man. The reason why He detests the proud is because pride is a way of sharing out of God’s glory and humility is a way of returning the glory to Him.

Revelation 4:11
[11]Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

The reason why He created you in His image and likeness is because of His glory

James 4:6
[6]But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Daddy G. O.’s Encounter.
Pastor E. A. Adeboye (The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God) narrated his encounter with God. He said that God told him to use his finger to draw a man on the ground and after he did that, God told him to wipe it off again. Then He told him afterwards that that was how He would wipe him away anyday he starts sharing His glory with Him. That’s why you will see this man of God kneeling down for several hours as a sign of homage to God and that is why the miraculous flows at ease with him, he heals the sick without stress and this is because he doesn’t share in God’s Glory.

The reason why He detests the proud is because pride is a way of sharing out of God’s glory and humility is a way of returning the glory to Him.

LOOK ON US vs WHY LOOK ON US
Last week, we discussed Faith as a major tool of unlocking God’s ability in us and I opened our eyes to the words of Peter and John at the beautiful gate. See how Peter stated his word:

Acts 3:4
[4]And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, LOOK ON US.

But Peter understands that allowing God to step in via faith is different from giving Him glory. The event after the healing of the man tells us that he was conscious of God’s glory. See this again:

Acts 3:4,12
[4]And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.
[12]And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or WHY LOOK SO EARNESTLY ON US, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?

MY EXPERIENCE
Whenever I want to minister healing, I do have this at the back of my mind, that I’m not the Healer; I’m just a channel. Even when I’m engrossed with compassion, I always tell myself that God is the Healer, I’m only ministering healing to that person to the glory of God. Most of the time when I minister healing via this revelation, I always see God work special healings. And I’ve always seen so many people crying for the healing anointing for their glory’s sake and that is why so many people do not enter into that reality.

God’s Glory is like a poison, it will kill you if you take it in.

Malachi 2:2
[2]If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.

God’s Glory is like a poison, it will kill you if you take it in.

Can you confess that “I’ll never take His glory, but rather, give Him His Glory” in the comment box?
