Eternal Weight of Glory?

2Co 4:17 For our LIGHT AFFLICTION, which is but for a moment, WORKETH FOR US a far more exceeding and ETERNAL WEIGHT OF GLORY;

What is the eternal weight of Glory, and what does it have to do with “WORKING FOR US”?
Weight has to do with “authority, and power” , and it is also translated as “Great, abundance, load, and fullness” Surely God's authority, and power is eternal and great. There is no power but that which is of God. (Romans 13:1) The Church's that Paul wrote letters to said, “For his letters, say they, are WEIGHTY and POWERFUL....(2 Cor 10:10) (KJV) The eternal weight of Glory is the power of God! Everything that God has given to his Church from the beginning was given by ”His divine power”.

2Pe 1:3 According as HIS DIVINE POWER HATH GIVEN UNTO US ALL THINGS that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Our “light” affliction is but only for a “moment” (temporary) as opposed to God's eternal weight of Glory which is “eternal” (Everlasting). We wrestle not against flesh, and blood but against spiritual wickedness in high places.(Eph 6:12) Even though our warfare is not against people, yet the Devil uses people to try, and stop the work of God.

It makes no difference how afflictions come either by the circumstances of life or through people their main goal is to stop the plan of God from happening in each and every believer's life. Since the Devil knows he can not stop God directly he tries to stop God indirectly by trying to hinder the body by which he operates through, which is his Church.
Jesus is the Glory of God, and his authority and power is an eternal weight of Glory that is everlasting!

How can we get the “eternal weight of God to work for us”? No amount of afflictions or tribulations could cause the power of God to work for us, for they are only the reason why we would want his Glory to work for us. The scriptures tell us exactly how this eternal weight of Glory works for us.

2Co 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, WORKETH FOR US A FAR MORE EXCEEDING AND ETERNAL WEIGHT OF GLORY;
2Co 4:18 WHILE WE LOOK NOT AT THE THINGS WHICH ARE SEEN, but AT THE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT SEEN: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

The only time God's eternal weight of Glory is working for us is while we are looking at the things not seen!!! Looking at the seen changes nothing, as they will remain the same!!
If we are not seeing the unseen then nothing is going to happen!!! What things are we to look at that is not seen?

Did not God promise us that he has already given to us everything that pertains to life and Godliness? (2 Peter 1:3) Things that are seen are only temporary which means they can be changed by God's eternal Glory if we would only see them by faith which in turn causes his eternal weight of Glory to work for us!!!

Nothing just happens by chance or falls out of the sky into our laps. If we never see the mountain removed and cast into the sea, the mountain will remain steadfast, and never move on its own.
If we want to see things changed, then we have to see the things changed first, before we will see them changed!!!

All things are possible to the man/women who have faith to see the unseen!!
