Haggai 2:9 - "The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of hosts."
Hebrews 6:1 - "Therefore let us go on and get past the elementary stage in the teachings and doctrine of Christ, advancing steadily toward the completeness and perfection that belong to spiritual maturity."
Nearly 2000 years ago, the author of the book of Hebrews exhorted the Jewish Christians to leave the elementary teachings and principles about Christ, urging them to press forward into maturity (through coming to understand their inheritance in Christ, their right standing with God, and learning to walk in the Spirit).
Today as we are DISCIPLED into a higher life in Christ we come before the very throne of God with boldness and confidence - stepping into maturity - as we encounter new realms of the Glory of God.
Psalm 149:6 - "Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand...."
We are being commissioned by the Lord to step into new realms of Glory through worship and high praise. As we do this together, we are going to see the Kingdom of Power and Glory made manifest. God's Kingdom is taking dominion upon the earth and is displacing every stronghold of the enemy.
Through high praise, we destroy the plans of the enemy and bring to earth new realms of Glory not yet revealed. We are stepping into a realm of timelessness where the miracles in His presence are being made known to us. As we continue Heavenward, we are breaking the constraints of the natural realm and shaking off old paradigms.
The doors of Heaven are opening wider than we've ever seen before and we are witnessing the unfolding of the scrolls of DESTINY. Both the seen and unseen worlds are being changed from one degree of glory to another, and all are being transformed by the ever-increasing Glory of God.

In Jesus' name, Amen.
The Lord blankets me with His tangible, manifest presence, and cloud of glory.
God is enlightening the eyes of my heart so that I would experientially know the inheritance of glory that lies within the saints.
I declare the word of the Lord and see it supernaturally manifest.
