Glory, Glory


In the event known as the Transfiguration of JesusMoses and Elijah appeared in glory with Jesus, and the disciples who witnessed this revelation, Peter, James and John, 'saw his glory'.

In the gospel of JohnJesus says that His destiny begins to be fulfilled when Judas Iscariot sets out to betray Him:.

Jesus subsequently addresses a long prayer to His Father in which he says:. Catholic doctrine asserts that the world was created as an act of God's free will for his own glory.

The theologian C. Lewisin his essay The Weight of Glorywrites "Glory suggests two ideas to me, of which one seems wicked and the other ridiculous. Either glory means to me fame, or it means luminosity. Glorification also referred to as canonization is the term used in the Orthodox Christian Church for the official recognition of a person as a saint of the Church.

The Orthodox Glory term theosis is roughly equivalent to the Protestant concept of glorification. It is in this sense that the resurrected bodies of the righteous will be "glorified" at the Second Coming. As Glory soul was illuminated through theosis so the restored body will be illuminated by the grace of God when it is "changed" at the Parousia 1 Corinthians This glorified body will be like the resurrected body of Jesus John —20 ; similar in appearance to the body during life, but of a more refined and spiritualized nature 1 Corinthians In his dissertation "Concerning the End for which God Created the World", Jonathan Edwards concludes, "[I]t appears that all that is ever spoken of in the Scripture as an ultimate end of God's works is included in that one phrase, 'the glory of God'.

There are two events that occur during glorification, these are "the receiving of perfection by the elect before entering into the kingdom of heaven," and "the receiving of the resurrection bodies by the elect".

Glorification is the third stage of Christian development. The first being justificationthen sanctificationand finally glorification. Glorification is the Protestant alternative to the Catholic purgatoryas it is "the means by which the elect receive perfection before entering into the kingdom of Heaven.

The majority of Protestant denominations believe in this form of glorification, although some have alternative names. After the final judgmentin some doctrines all the righteous dead will arise and their bodies will be perfected and become a glorified body, under which form they can enter Heaven.

In Islamic belief, God has 99 namesand in some Islamic traditions it is believed that there is a special hidden th name which is the greatest. To glorify God in Islam is one of the four eternal good deeds. For example "The seven heavens and the earth and all beings therein glorify God. Glory is not a single thing that does not glorify God with praise, but you do not understand their glorification.

God is truly clement and forgiving" [Quran ]. For example, you glorify God because God is impeccable and you are in God's wonderful kingdom; you praise God because God is sustaining, ruling and loving you and everyone; you unify God because only God exists and nothing exists beside God; you elevate God so that nothing would remain or be elevated in your heart beside God.

Muhammad said "To glorify God, to praise God, to unify God and to elevate God is more pleasing to my heart than everything under the sun.

Glorification in Islam has many layers of meanings that varies according to one's spiritual state and circumstances.
