Few Christians have subjectively given the unconditional right to their life to the Lord in order to become a “love slave,” giving Him full authority over their life, and all that pertains to them. A kingdom requires three things, a territory, a ruler, and those who are ruled over. He is the King, but will rule only those who have personally given Him permission to do so.
Once I made this commitment, He is no longer just “Jesus my Savior,” or, “Christ Jesus the anointed One, my healer and baptizer.” He has become the “Lord Jesus Christ,” to whom I have fully submitted my life, and who now rules over all that I am, and have. The Lord has brought me back into a cooperative, personal relationship with Himself that was lost in the Garden of Eden.
The Shekinah will yet be fully restored to those who have unconditionally submitted themselves to Him. During our times of testing, the Lord will purge all dross, until His Shekinah shall shine forth as the noon day sun through those who are fully redeemed, and have made Him their Lord.
“When He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe(because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.” II Thessalonians 1:10
“Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon you, and His glory shall be seen upon you. And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” Isaiah 60:1-3
We are about to experience His glory, but first, we must give up the right to our own lives, so the Lord Jesus Christ can come in His glory and live His life through us.
