Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.   Heb 11:1

   The glory of God is attracted to some people like iron fillings are to a magnet.  Jesus told us that He was sharing the glory with us.  "And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me."  (John 17:22-23)  So the glory that Jesus had was available to be shared with us.  As always with Kingdom things, just because something is available does mean we all carry that thing to the same level.  Some love the glory, desire it, long for it, and treasure it, others see no value in it, and therefore do not carry it to the extent of being noticed.
   We know the the glory that Jesus carried was shared with His disciples.  As they ministered in Jerusalem and appeared before the Sanhedrin, it was said of Peter and John, "Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled.  And they realized that they had been with Jesus."  (Acts 4:13)  The glory that was manifest around Jesus was apparent on Peter and John.  So much so, that people saw Jesus in them.  As we seek to be carriers of the glory, people will see Jesus in us as well.
    The more glory we seek, the more we will be drawn in manifestations of the glory, and the more the glory is attracted to us as carriers.  The more glory we carry, the more will be added us.  The less glory we carry, the less that will be added to us.  Jesus put it this way in the parable of the talents.  "For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance, but for him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away."  (Matthew 25:29)
    The glory of God in the New Testament is doxa.  It means the essence of who God is...His face...His person.  The glory teaches us who God is and allows us to function as He would function.  Remembering that God resides in the third heaven, and there in the third heaven God is not bound by time, bodily deficiency, or apparent circumstances.  As carriers of His presence, or His glory, the third heaven manifests around us.  The more we pour out the third heaven, the more the third heaven attaches itself to us.  The more the third heaven attaches itself to us, the more miracles we walk in You see in the third heaven what we think of as miracles are merely common place.
    How then can we become carriers of the glory?  Simply by spending more time with God.  When Moses spent long periods of time around God his face glowed.  The people were so afraid that they made Moses wear a veil so that they could not see his glowing face.  They were afraid of the manifestation of God.  However, we are summoned by Hebrews chapter 4, to "come boldly to the throne of grace" and to be in God's presence.
    So, where we started is where we will end up, the glory should be increasing in our lives the more time we spend in God's presence, seeking not His hand but His face.  Who God is, is His Face.  To know Him is to increase in that which He is!  Desire to be a carrier of His glory...He wants you to be!
