God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, is the supreme Deity and the Spirit of wisdom and revelation is expressive of His true Divinity in all ages and at all times. Let's find out more!

Reference: Ephesians 1:17 New International Version (NIV) "I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better."

When someone keeps asking God to grant you specific manifestation of the two dimensions of the Holy Spirit (His eternal attributes) in order to become intimate with God, it means that the request is of paramount importance. "I keep asking" denotes ongoing, continual request; it was in progress at the time. It is an intercessory prayer sustained to the point at which the request is evidently actualised or finalized. In Paul's case, he continued the prayer on behalf of the faithful saints in Ephesus until the consummation of this desire was attained in their lives.

Now watch this: Specifically, the New King James version conveyed the message as "God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory." Paul introduced God as the Father of glory. In another term, He is the Glory of glories. His Glory is the Greek word, "Doxa", as well as the Latin word, "decus" and both denote honour, beauty, ornament, distinction, splendour, brightness. This glory is veiled in His immemorial Being because it is the ancient eternity of His essence, engraved on His image and is constantly revealed to us as His beauty. According to 2 Corinthians 3:18, as we continually reflect the glory of God with uncovered faces, we are progressively being transformed into His image from one degree of glory to even more glory (BSB).

As Christians, the glory of God fills our soul with the Spirit of life, as we continually reflect it. This glory is our stronghold; it is the radiance that bountifully sheds the light of favour on us. Its work in our lives is perfect, or beyond description, and the influence is binding. In other words, it is can never be extinguished. God is our Father of glory and because we are in Christ, we wear His glory as a robe thereby manifesting it in varying degrees. And the good news is that our robe of glory can never be outworn both in this world and in the realm of the spirit.

The Bible says Isaiah 60:1-2, "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you" (NIV). Indeed this is true of the redeemed Zion, which spiritually signifies everyone who belongs to Christ. The Scripture summons us to rise to our new life in Christ, which is radiant with the glory of the Lord. The light is our salvation, because Christ has come to dwell in us; it is also accompanied by the glory of the Lord, because it dispels the darkness in your world.

Beloved, may the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better. Shalom!
