Let us see the glory of God!

Posted by appolus on April 5, 2022

Act 7:55  But he, being full of the Holy Spirit, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, 

Stephen, being full of the Holy Spirit. looked heavenwards and saw the glory of God. He saw Jesus standing at the right hand of the Father. Was this a church gathering? Was he in a room full of believers enjoying the corporate presence of God? Far from it, he was confronting the religious men of the day. As he was seeing these things they screamed and ran towards him and with great violence, dragged him out of the city and stoned Stephen to death. He, had committed a capital crime. He had torn down their idol, the Temple, by saying God did not dwell in temples made by human hands. He then accused them of being stiff-necked, it means obstinate and stubborn. He said they were uncircumsized of heart, meaning they were not children of God. And then, he accused them of killing the “just one,’ the Christ. All of that was true.

What Stephen said back then, we have seen play out for the last 2000 years. Religious men are still un-circumsised in heart, meaning they do not actually know Jesus. They still resist and reject the Holy Spirit in their midst. They still worship their “temple.” God’s children are still the deadliest enemy to those who are of the flesh. Yet no matter what, the key is to be “full of the Holy Spirit.” Being full of the Holy Spirit was not a random occurrence for Stephen. In Acts chapter six we are told that Stephen was chosen by the whole multitude because they knew he was a man “full of faith and the Holy Spirit.” Brothers and sisters, we are called to be full of faith and the Holy Spirit. God prepares a table for those who are full of the Holy Spirit, in the presence of their enemies. Even when they are walking through the valley of death, they fear no evil, for goodness and mercy and the Living God has followed them all the days of their new lives. He is faithful, let us be faithful. He has given the Holy Spirit, let us be full of the Holy Spirit.
