Glory of the Son - Part 4

JOHN 17:1
"Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You.”

1. Revelation of Glory (John 1:17)

3. Christ in us, Hope of Glory (Col.1:27)
4. Christ Glorified in the Disciple’s Death to Self
5. Christ Glorified in the Disciple’s Pursuit of Him
6. Christ Glorified in the Disciple’s Full-Hearted Service
7. The Son Glorified through Love in His Body

JOHN 1:14: The Glory of the Son

1 Jn.1:1-2

1. The Glory of His Unction

Acts 10:38 – How God anointed Jesus…

But His anointing was not on earth
He was foreordained – from the foundation

CHRISTOS – The Anointed One
Not an but the Anointed One

The Glorious Ordination Service of Christ (Heb.1:8-14)
The Declaration (Heb.5:4-6,10)
The Order (Heb. 7:1-24): According to Promise and Not According to Law (i.e. not Aaronic)
1. It is Eternal: Melchizedekian Order (v.3, Without Beginning, Without End)
2. Made after the power of an endless life (v.16,17)
3. Made by God’s Oath (v.21,28)
4. An Unchangeable Priesthood (v.24)

PRIEST: Represents Man to God – MEDIATOR, PEACEMAKER, BRIDGE BUILDER - ETERNALLY
Therefore, ALL prayer is only accepted in JESUS’ NAME

UNCTION:
1. Gives authority over all flesh (Jn.17:2)
2. Gives authority to give eternal life
3. Gives authority to manifest God’s Name (v.6,26)
4. Gives authority to pass on God’s Words (v.8)
5. Gives authority to pray (v.9)
6. Gives authority to sanctify (v.19)

Earthly Priests:
shadows that pass away
approach with fear and trembling


The Shekinah that dwelt in the Holiest has now dwelt among us in flesh and blood: IMMANUEL
The Glory of God is wrapped in the nature of man

HE IS THE TEMPLE
HE IS THE HIGH PRIEST
HE IS THE SACRIFICE
HE IS THE GLORY OF THE ETERNAL GOD

Anointing by the Spirit

He gave us the Spirit
The Anointing within us (1Jn. 2:20,27)
Are we doing what Christ did (Acts.10:38)
Greater things…


2. The Glory of His Passion

The disciples noticed something magnificent about Jesus. He was zealous for His Father.
- When He overturned the tables of changers in the temple
- When He spoke with authority before the Scribes and leaders
- When He wept for Jerusalem
- When He prayed to the His Father in His agony

Can you see the zeal of the Son of God? It is glorious.

To His parents: “Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?” Luke 2:48
To the people at the temple, He cried out: “Take these things away. Make NOT my Father’s house an house of merchandise!” Jn.2:16

The Disciples remembered Jn.2:17, “The zeal of Thy house has eaten me up.”

It aches my heart when I see people, Christians, possessed by some other passions – money, pleasure, earthly things…

Haggai 1:3,4,9; CALL 1:8; 2:15

“I have kept whom You gave” He did it for the Father. He drank the cup for His love.

Can’t you see the passion, when each time in this Chapter He says “Father!” v.1,5,11,25


3. The Glory of His Salvation

The Wisdom – Mystery 1Cor.2:7-10

1Pt.1:10-12; Eph.1:18-21; Col.1:26,27

A freedom that is true
A forgiveness that is forever
A life that will never end
An inheritance that will never perish
A joy that is fully satisfied
A glory that never fades
A kingdom that remains forever
In which dwells righteousness and truth

A GLORIOUS SALVATION
A GLORIOUS GOSPEL
LET’S PROCLAIM IT
