pic of joan of arc statue
history of joan of arc
lived 600 years ago
great grandparents name, 5 back from you? 100 years ago
this statue points to the reality of a person that lived 600 years ago
This statue enhances the reputation of Joan of Arc
This statue is a physical embodiment of her importance, reputation, and significance
its a physical embodiment of her importance and reputation and significance
biblical language the word would be glory
we use glory very infrequently but the bible uses it many times
we might use it for a sunset or a sunrise, nature in some way
celebration, shout glory
we dont say, this birthday was for my glory or their glory
but for the statue we could prob say this statue is in her honor
this glorifies Joan of arc
this statue is her glory
this statue reflects her glory
Its a glorious statue of Joan of arc
So far its pretty confusing.. this word glory
Hebrew word for glory is kuvode
root word is kuvod
another word is kuved
the very literal most basic definition is heavy, weighty
1 Samuel 4:18 ESV
18 As soon as he mentioned the ark of God, Eli fell over backward from his seat by the side of the gate, and his neck was broken and he died, for the man was old and heavy. He had judged Israel forty years.
Exodus 9:18 ESV
18 Behold, about this time tomorrow I will cause very heavy hail to fall, such as never has been in Egypt from the day it was founded until now.
Kavod
Literally - Eli Falling cause he was heavy
We use heavy literally but we also use heavy metaphorically
What kind of news did you just get? heavy
Someone just passed away and my heart is heavy
9/11 happened almost 18 years ago but that topic is still a heavy topic
What are we doing? Using literal images of weight to describe something that is important, serious, intense, or significant
Using literal images of weight to describe something that is important, serious, intense, or significant
Literally - Eli Falling cause he was heavy
Using literal images of weight to describe something that is important or serious intense or significance
Bible uses this literally but also uses it like this as well
Psalm 7:3–5 ESV
3 O Lord my God, if I have done this, if there is wrong in my hands, 4 if I have repaid my friend with evil or plundered my enemy without cause, 5 let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it, and let him trample my life to the ground and lay my glory in the dust. Selah

Metaphor of weightiness of someones reputation
Numbers 11:14 ESV
14 I am not able to carry all this people alone; the burden is too heavy for me.
Psalm 7:5 ESV
5 let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it, and let him trample my life to the ground and lay my glory in the dust. Selah
Metaphor of weightiness of someones reputation
President were to come to little ol hilmar, what would happen? First they would clear the roads and any way to get to the roads to protect him from any attack. And a set of guards would go before and a set of guards would be behind, to the left and to the right, and where ever he went there would almost be this invisible bubble that would go before him to protect him wherever he went, sometimes and many times it is cleared miles ahead of the president.
This invisible force is the presidents kuvode, his weightiness as president that goes before and behind
His heaviness goes before him, the invisible but real social reality of someones importance and significance
His heaviness goes before him, invisible but real social reality of someones importance and significance
and its this same kuvode that psalm 7:5 talks about.
Psalm 7:5 ESV
5 let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it, and let him trample my life to the ground and lay my glory in the dust. Selah
he doesnt have any more kuvode
His social and societal importance is worth nothing its in the dust
Genesis 49:6 ESV
6 Let my soul come not into their council; O my glory, be not joined to their company. For in their anger they killed men, and in their willfulness they hamstrung oxen.

When you were a early teen did you ever have a bunch of posters up of your favorite bands or celebrities? How was your room set up?

desk at work
Kuvode
Kuvode
Literal
metaphporical
physical manifestation of ones importance
So in these ways we could use kuvode for people
What about the word Kuvode when used with God
Psalm 19:1 ESV
1 The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Architect builds something and shares part of his kuvode with people
so the heavens declare the kavode of God the glory, the physical manifestation of God’s greatness
God has put something in the heavens that when we look at it we can know something about God himself, the weightyness of God, the heaviness of God can be seen in the heavens
Psalm 57:5 ESV

this goes along with the reputation, kind of,
ascribe means attribute, assign, impute, credit
the heaviness, the importance, the greatness, the awsomeness
due - something owed, required or expected in the prescribed, normal, or logical course of events
To see God, to give god glory due his name means to understand who he really is and acknowledge him in that way
read verse again
his name, the greatest name of all
Psalm 106:20–21 ESV
20 They exchanged the glory of God for the image of an ox that eats grass. 21 They forgot God, their Savior, who had done great things in Egypt,

exchange what should be god’s for something else, and when we see who god is why do we do this?
Later

name represents all of a person, what we see and what we don’t see.
Names have meaning and power.

mom called you, nickname, first name, mad full name, either way, when she called, she called you..
When we call on the name of Jesus, who answers? not somebody else. Jesus. God the Son. Heavenly father, holy spirit
name matters even your name carries weight in your world
Gad’s name carries weight as well
It identifies a person, what we see and what we dont
what we know and what we dont

2 Corinthians 3:4–18 ESV
4 Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. 5 Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God, 6 who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 7 Now if the ministry of death, carved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses’ face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end, 8 will not the ministry of the Spirit have even more glory? 9 For if there was glory in the ministry of condemnation, the ministry of righteousness must far exceed it in glory. 10 Indeed, in this case, what once had glory has come to have no glory at all, because of the glory that surpasses it. 11 For if what was being brought to an end came with glory, much more will what is permanent have glory. 12 Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, 13 not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. 14 But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. 15 Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. 16 But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 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.
