Kabad, Kabed, and Kabod are all of the household of words which signify glory in the OT.
Some of the definitions for these words are heavy, great, massive, abundant, numerous, and rich, and in bad sense, oppressive and burdensome. Here we see the infinite wisdom of God in choosing the vehicle of glory to display His invisible kingdom.
Any kingdom operates in vicinity or an area where the authority of the one in charge of it is exercised. Whether invisible or visible, a kingdom is established in a “place” or “places”, which defines that kingdom. That place, is made up of things or objects which constitute the “place”. Consequently many places obedient to the one ruling it, becomes a kingdom.
The invisible kingdom of God exists in many “places” in the realm of the dimension of the invisible heavens. Paul calls them heavenly “places”. As any earthly place is full of visible things that we continually access through our physical senses, a heavenly place has tons of things which we access by faith. We must know that we boldly and confidently have unlimited rights to access and handle heavenly things in a heavenly place at all times. Our access to handle and possess these things occurs by faith just as we boldly and confidently access the things in a visible realm through our 5 senses. This is the right and the inheritance of the believer in Jesus Christ. No other religion or faith or doctrine or world view or opinions can give an individual this unlimited access to the kingdom, the places, and the things which represent the realms of the heavens.
Eph 3:12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
Our minds must be renewed to a point where entering into a specific heavenly place is more simple and natural than accessing a visible place. Once that you gain entrance into a heavenly place, with the eyes of faith, you see the many invisible things interacting and flowing in that place. The things in a heavenly place interact beautifully, majestically, seamlessly and gloriously in the spirit. We can see part of this in Ezekiel chapter one and the throne chariot of God. It moves forward at all times over supernatural wheels. In a heavenly place, the things of God glide and move seamlessly on wheels and without limitations and with absolute authority over the corrupt things that we see. You can make them to ever increase and abound by the instrument of faith. Its like being submerged in the most amazing of aquariums.
I have been seeing them more and more. The great secret of signs and wonders is that upon handling and invisible thing you must grab on to it and execute it without hesitancy or the fear of man, what the Lord tells you to do with it. At that moment the miracle, or deliverance or the healing takes place.
Your life becomes amazingly exciting and laden with “joy unspeakable and full of glory” and when you can access heavenly places and handle heavenly things on a continual basis. Remember, in the natural we handle the things visible and their substance by our 5 senses. In the invisible, we handle its things and their substance by faith.
Hebrews 11;1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen (the invisible things) were not made of things which do appear.
Glory is what brings into the reality of our 5 senses the things invisible. Remember its definitions; heavy, great, massive, abundant, numerous, rich. By faith and glory, God gives weight, tangibility and abundance to the things that our fives senses cannot access. Glory brings His invisible things and makes them accessible to our 5 senses. You think about that today.
