The Gateway for God's Glory

On Monday as I was worshipping and praying in the sanctuary of my church God showed me something I feel I need to share with others who are hungry and seeking after God.
I saw something celestial and active, like a portal or a black hole. It was huge and it seemed as though it was far out in deep space. I saw ribbons of light pouring, or being sucked down, into a bowl shaped structure with a flat bottom. The ribbons of light were like streams of molten gold that were drawn into the bowl from outer space. They poured down along its walls and across its bottom flowing into a hole in the middle of the bottom which acted like a drain, and became one concentrated stream of light which was then pulled down through space to the earth. It was so magnificent: the flowing golden ribbons, the colours, the contrast of dark and light, the beautiful shape of the magnificent portal, and the steady movement of the flow of molten light.

I asked the Lord why He was showing me this amazing thing, and He said He was trying to show me how my hunger, my desire for Him, brought His glory - the streams of light - down from the heavenly realms into the church sanctuary.

That our longing for more of Him is a force which draws, or pulls His glory down onto our earthly plane. As we continue to hunger after Him and long for His Presence and His glory, we draw down the power of heaven to earth, and our lives and our churches are transformed by the power and the glory of God.

I wish I could draw or find an image that would do justice to the heavenly vision that I saw, but these at least give some idea. My prayer and my hope in sharing this is that as you seek after God,  you too will receive a revelation of His glory. That your hunger to know Him more will draw the glory of heaven down to earth into your life and church and community.

And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord,are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
