The Eternal Glory of God

What passes for “glory” in the world of men is generally a poor imitation or substitute for God’s glory. Any glory which man can achieve on his own is short-lived and subject to reconsideration with the passage of time.

Contrast this to the glory of God, which is eternal. In fact, the greatest glory that sinful man can probably hope to interact with is the glory of God manifested in the grace-gifts He bestows upon His elect. Obviously, chief among these gifts is salvation.

One of the most amazing things about God’s grace is that He planned it – in love for His elect, and for His glory, before He created us – even though He foreknew the worthlessness of men’s works and our futile attempts to achieve righteousness on our own.

Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

II Timothy 2:10

  6. […] Jehovah is “the mighty God.” Elohim is plural – God in 3 Persons. Also, in Hebrew, there is a great reverence of God’s name. The plural form “Elohim” is used because plural forms are used to give greater emphasis and magnitude to that which is being described. For example, some have argued that we shouldn’t speak of the majesty, beauty, and perfection of God. Rather we should speak of His majesties, beauties, and perfections. The glories of God – all His attributes – are overwhelming and unending. […]
