GLORYLAND Numbers 14:21 (King James Version) "But as truly as I live, all earth shall be filled with glory of LORD." Isaiah 11:9 (King James Version) "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for earth shall be full of knowledge of LORD, as waters cover sea." Habakkuk 2:14 (King James Version) "For earth shall be filled with knowledge of glory of LORD, as waters cover sea." In a time that earth seems set for self-destruction through global warming,international terrorism or nuclear race,the prophetic destiny of earth as stated in three verses above seems impossible. But all things are possible with God(Mark 10:27),and to he or she who believes(Mark 9:23). This is only divine solution to deepening and darkening emptiness in our world today. Anyone can have a real part in fulfillment of such a great destiny,by humbly entering into everlasting covenant with God which is stated below:-
Jeremiah 31:33-34 (King James Version) "But this shall be covenant that I will make with house of Israel; After those days, saith LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people." "And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know LORD: for they shall all know me, from least of them unto greatest of them, saith LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more." Entry is only possible through Lord Jesus Christ who shed his blood on Calvary to reconcile us back to God. This was necesary because sin had alienated man from God. Everyone is now commanded by God to repent from sin(Acts 17 :30) and believe on Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour(Acts16 :31). By reason of this covenant,man's relationship and fellowship with God is fully restored. With this restoration,grace is fully available to intimately know God,and then to faithfully express love for God in simple obedience to him. As one grows in grace(2 Peter 3 : 18),one seeks to say and do all things to glory of God(1 Cor. 10 :31) just like one's Lord and Master as stated below:- John 7:18 (King James Version) "He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him." A brief look at fans of any pop idol will reveal that they always and only seek glory of their 'icon'. This was vividly demonstrated before,during,and after just concluded 'the Michael Jackson case' in United States(June 2005). Every follower of Christ as a lover of God not only seeks God's glory but also carries and manifests God's glory(2 Cor. 3 : 18). God's glory is manifested through every christian by means of gifts of Spirit(1 Cor.12:6-10) and fruit of Spirit(Gal. 5 : 22-23).

AN OPEN DOOR
1 Corinthians 16:9 (King James Version) "For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries."
There is an open door set before everyone in Christ Jesus! It is a door that is opened, and no man can shut it! It is opened despite of a person's dull and ugly past! It is a door that is great and effectual! It is door of destiny! It is opened into a bright and colorful future! This door that links a person and fulfillment of divine destiny! Associated with it are many adversaries. Some adversaries are seen,and others are unseen. Some come in guise of friends,and others come in their true colours! Some seem to work singly,and others seem to work in groups. Some work to prevent a person from seeing this door. Others work to prevent a person from passing through door. Others work to frustrate anyone who passes through door. These are enemies of destiny! They are headed by mankind's arch-enemy,the devil(Rev 12:9). All negative thoughts in a person are allies of these adversaries!
These allies work against any person's destiny! These allies should be firmly dealt with as prescribed by God's word(2 Cor.10:3-6). They should be casted down from place of control in human mind! The human mind is battleground where wars are won or lost in noble pursuit of divine destiny! When any person is in Christ,he/she becomes a new creature(2 Cor.5:17) and he/she receives God's grace to think positive thoughts(Philippians 4:8). Positive thoughts are friends of destiny! They are downloaded from mind of Christ(1 Cor.2:16) into Christian's mind which becomes renewed(Rom. 12:2). This process takes in realm of Spirit in various ways. It could happen during private or public worship(John 4:23-24). It also occurs as one reads bible or listens to word of God through others using various media like radio,television,books,magazines,tracts,and Internet(Heb. 4:12-13).
