The Divine Splendor: An Exploration of God’s Magnificence (Part C) By Pst Femi Leke

The biblical passage referenced is 1 Samuel 2:26.


According to verse 26, the young individual named Samuel experienced growth and gained favor in the eyes of both the LORD and other individuals.


Despite Samuel being chosen to bear the divine splendor, its manifestation did not occur automatically. He underwent a preparatory process. He experienced growth prior to the revelation of greatness. The disparity between Samuel and the offspring of Eli was evident. The offspring of Eli did not receive proper education. The mishandling of the splendour became evident during its transportation.

The attainment of grandeur is contingent upon adequate preparation. According to biblical scripture, the growth of Samuel include the development of his spirit, soul, and physical body. The individual in question exhibited discipline and possessed a commendable character, as character serves as the vessel for charisma. It is worth noting that charisma, in the absence of character, is prone to failure. If an individual asserts that their attractiveness as a male or female leads to others pursuing them, yet they lack moral integrity, it is untenable for them to remain in that position.

The establishment of a professional network through familial ties may facilitate employment opportunities, but, it is ultimately one’s personal qualities and attributes that will determine long-term success in a given position.

Failure to exhibit desirable character traits may result in termination from said employment. Employers are generally disinclined to hire individuals who pose a potential liability. Samuel’s life was characterized by the manifestation of both the fruit of the spirit and the gift of the spirit. In the absence of sound character or the manifestation of the fruit of the spirit, it is unlikely that God will bestow a gift upon an individual, as it may have detrimental consequences for their well-being. The sole means by which one can uphold and maintain the honor and prestige associated with glory, without engaging in its misuse, is via adequate and thorough preparation.

He has the knowledge that the mansion was constructed by the divine being. He commenced entering into matrimonial unions with unfamiliar women and constructing dwellings for the veneration of their deities. How can an individual who has encountered the divine presence of God to such an extent that God’s manifestation was so overwhelming that they were unable to do their religious duties due to its intensity, then engage in the construction of structures dedicated to the worship of false deities? This statement can be interpreted as an indication that the state of grandeur has ceased to exist. What is the value of God in your perspective?
