6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
Donna, I agree. These verses in Zechariah describe the day of the coming of the Lord, after the Great Tribulation described in Zechariah 12-14. I was especially taken by the LIGHT that could only describe His Glory.

Yes, it's a fact stated as a metaphor.
---learner2 on 5/7/15|
Just to reiterate, I think the Glory of God is the essence of who He is. It's His majesty, power, His powerful Love, His light, truth, all of the things that He is.
I heard that His Glory lights up heaven, thus there's no need for the sun in heaven.
The anointing comes from the Holy Spirit. You have no need for a teacher, you have an anointing from the Holy one who teaches you all things. 1 John.

Max is not actually a pig when he eats.
Learner2, the anointing of the Holy Spirit is not "actually" oil. It's actually the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the believers life. It is not a metaphor, but a FACT.

Anointing is putting actual oil on something. It's a metaphor.

Max is a pig when he eats.
Its raining cats and dogs.
He tried to help but his legs were rubber.
My teacher is a dragon.
Their home was a prison.
Here are examples of metaphors.
Learner2, "anointing" is not a metaphor.

Donna, I think you asked a really great question. I love Joseph and Leon's answers too. All that we can know about either subject is through scripture. There are so many things we should be asking and learning.

// "anointing" or"glory of God" in this context. It sounds like buzz words...---Cluny on 4/30/15//
Cluny, buzz words? anointing & Glory sound like buzz words?
Leon, kathr4453 and Joseph give really good definitions of those "buzz words" which are both in the bible. 1John "you have an anointing from the holy one....etc." And Moses asked to see God's Glory. That's why I was asking the difference.

///What is the difference between the anointing and the Glory of God? Can we live in the realm of His Glory?///
Ms. Donna: God's "anointing" is the specific setting apart of believers for an office or function. God's "glory" is His attributes & power as revealed through creation. It shows His perfect character, especially His righteousness of which we all fall short of. The "Glory of God" is a place of blessedness where believers can enter into while being transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ.

When Jesus walked on earth, all He did Glorified God. John 17 says Jesus left GLORY, and then prays to be Glorified again the way He was from the Beginning. YET Jesus certainly was anointed. One day we will share in His Glory, again as John 17 state. Are we Glorified now? I don't believe we will be until,the day we will be Glorified together with Him..Romans 8 Thesselonians also state that one day His Glory will be revealed in us. Paul was blinded by the light of His Glory. In the OT, the Glory of God shown over the Tabernacle and was a light. That Light is Christ who is the light of the world. We are to walk in the Light as He is in the Light, Glorifying God in all that we do.

"What is the difference between the anointing and the Glory of God?" Donna the anointing is the "the glory of God, as the manifest presence of His Spirit. "Can we live in the realm of His Glory? Yes, as we as believers, abides in His presence through the submission our will to His Spirit that He may guide, and empower us to adherence to that Spirit, by and through His grace and the faith given us to exercise in Him and His Word. Father has anointed His Children with the Holy Spirit and power to go around doing good, and healing the afflicted just as He anoint Jesus to and for that task.

Why not just read scripture GOD provided.
It won't complicate the subject like these confu$ed author$ and their promoter, who can't identify what they seek and don't understand in scripture.
One may take on their spirit of confusion and blindness apart from GOD.
Psa_51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy spirit from me.
Luk_11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

I'm not too sure what you mean by either "anointing" or"glory of God" in this context. It sounds like buzz words full of sound and fury, signifying nothing, because they nimbly escape from the garden of meaning.
St. Seraphim of Sarov said that the aim of the Christian life was the "acquisition of the Holy Spirit"--that is, being drawn more and more into the eternal life of the Holy Trinity. It's a process, not a one-time-for-all thing.
