CHAYIL Glory is the manifested power and glory of the Lord Jesus Christ in and through His servants. In moves of God on earth, He empowers willing servants, God-fearing kings, ordinary people, and armies for manifested glory that resulted in salvation of millions, victorious battles, great miracles, and revivals that brought great glory to His Name. God’s glory with Moses and the Israelis was described as Shekinah Glory, the Hebrew word meaning ‘God is with us’, ‘the dwelling place of God’.
Now, however, God is not only with us but also in us , “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Col. 1:27). Jesus describes His Glory with the Hebrew word CHAYIL, “At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”(Luke 21:27). The Hebrew word for power and great is CHAYIL. The coming of Jesus Christ is a visitation in times when the earth is in crisis.
CHAYIL Glory, therefore, describes the awesome glory of God that can manifest in and through His servants for the salvation of desperate people as in the days of Moses, and the deliverance of desperate nations as in the days of David, Hezekiah, Jehoshaphat and other kings in the Bible. In all these mighty moves of God His name was revered by the people and kings of the earth.
Movements are about mobilizing willing people behind a shared purpose for CHANGE. It is disruptive and transformational. Our world is in a season of growing political hostilities between global superpowers. There are escalations of threats, violence, sanctions and pockets of open warfare. Our world is poised for a devastating crisis unless God triggers a movement on earth to overpower current global movements of terrorism, violence, corruption, poverty, perversion and victimization of the weak (children, the poor and women). It is time for Jesus Christ to come down and save the world, (John 3:16).
The CHAYIL Glory Movement is an outpouring of God’s glory manifesting in love, hope, mercy, goodness, power, healing, deliverance, and salvation. It will flow in and through His servants, resulting in transformed lives and communities, “Christ in you is the hope of Glory.” (Col 1:27). It will change the direction our world is heading and bring the hope and peace that our world is crying for. It is time for CHANGE.
In the CHAYIL Glory Movement, revival will cause the name Jesus Christ to be exalted in our world. “Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Phil 2:9-11). We are believing for Global Revival to stop Global Disaster.
This Movement includes you and ordinary people who are ready for CHANGE (personal, local, and societal). It is time for God to come down and to save our world. Let’s begin to move the heart of God by praying in unity asking Him to come and change us to change our world, to glorify us to bring glory to His name. Let’s pray like Jesus, “Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.” (John 17:1). Together we will create a tipping point for the outpouring of God’s glory in all the earth.
Jesus Christ is good news to a world in crisis: “At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory (CHAYIL Glory).” (Luke 21:27); “And all mankind will see God’s salvation.” (Luke 3:6); “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.” (Hab. 2:14). You can make a difference.
Wealth is power and a gift from God to His trusted servants. The Bible teaches that God will give power, ability, and glory to trusted servants to create and receive wealth for HIS purpose and mission. “You may say to yourself, ‘My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me. But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.'” (Deut. 8:17-18). This is covenant wealth given for God’s sake, for the people sake, and for the world sake.
Jesus identifies Himself with our forefathers, David and Abraham, “A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham.” (Mat. 1:1). The covenant blessing of Abraham included receiving God’s power, glory, and wealth to birth the nation and religion of Israel. “Abram had become very wealthy in livestock and in silver and gold.” (Gen 13:2).
Through David, God established Israel as a strong kingdom. “Through the victories you gave (David), his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.” (Ps. 21:5). Both Abraham and David were recipients of God’s wealth for His Kingdom, Priesthood, and the people’s sake.
God’s covenant of power and glory includes wealth for the fulfillment of His purpose on earth. God has promised access and the creation of wealth to those who are sold out to His mission. The forefathers of Jesus were blessed with CHAYIL (powerful great) Glory for wealth, power, and influence to fulfill His mission in and through them. EL CHAYIL is LORD of Wealth.
David praised the LORD in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, “Praise be to you, O LORD, God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand. ” (1 Chron. 29:10-14).
David’s Psalm described the manifested CHAYIL Glory of wealth and honor in his life. He was a poor homeless man living in a cave and by God’s grace and glory he became the King of Israel and with the ability to give generously for the building of God’s temple. His final mission on earth was to enhance the worship of God with songs and musical instruments, give generously towards the building of God’s temple, and to ensure that God’s Kingdom would continue strong with Solomon as his successor.
David’s CHAYIL Glory manifested in several areas:
David, in spite his open adoration and unwavering service for God, was very influential among the neighboring kings in the Middle East. He forged successful partnerships, was granted great favor for projects such as the building his palace, and with wisdom developed strategic alliances in times of war. He transformed Israel to become a mighty nation and millions of people to live in a nation that honors and reveres God. His influence continues with many references in the New Testament Bible and with Jesus’ declaration, “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” (Rev. 22:16).
“And David knew that the LORD had established him as king over Israel and that his kingdom had been highly exalted for the sake of his people Israel.” (1 Chron. 14:2). David acknowledged that his wealth and influence was for his mission on earth that included his kingdom, the priesthood, and the people of Israel. His donation to build the Temple of God before he died was so large that he wrote, “Besides, in my devotion to the temple of my God I now give my personal treasures of gold and silver for the temple of my God, over and above everything I have provided for this holy temple: three thousand talents of gold (gold of Ophir) and seven thousand talents of refined silver, for the overlaying of the walls of the buildings, for the gold work and the silver work, and for all the work to be done by the craftsmen. Now, who is willing to consecrate himself today to the LORD?” “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand”. (1 Chron. 29:3-5,14).
David played a significant role in the development of Israel as a nation and most of all as the forefather of Jesus, the Savior of the world. David’s many psalms are still being sung and recited today. His life is a role model to many for living a sacrificial life, giving generously to the cause of God’s Kingdom, undaunted faith, zeal and passionate service to His King of Glory, overcoming failures, forgiveness of major sins, and great devotion to God. God testified of David, “After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.” (Acts 13:22).
4. MANIFESTED CHAYIL Glory
David at seventeen years old with powerful great glory delivered Israel from a giant called Goliath. With one stone in a sling shot, David fought and defeated a nine-feet tall champion giant. David won many battles and as a young many grew famous as a CHAYIL (mighty warrior). He overcame poverty and became a wealthy king; he overcame bitterness and helped his family that rejected him; he recovered severe losses; he overcame betrayal from his own son; he survived public humiliation; he conquered the enemies of his kingdom. “Through the victories you gave (David), his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.” (Ps.21:5)
The manifested CHAYIL Glory of Jesus Christ in your life will make you attractive to influential people for favor, sponsorship, partnerships, great projects, help and continued blessings. God’s promise to you: “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” (Is. 60:1-3).
The CHAYIL (powerful great) glory of Jesus Christ is the glorious inheritance of His servants. “I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints.” (Eph. 1:18).
May the manifested CHAYIL Glory of our LORD Jesus Christ manifest in and through you bringing Him great glory. May the CHAYIL Glory of the LORD make you blessed without sorrow; powerful in meekness; and with manifested glory to bring great glory to His Name. “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Col. 1:27).
“Who can find a virtuous woman? Her worth is far above rubies.” (Prov. 31:10).
The word ‘virtuous woman’ in this Scripture is the word, ‘CHAYIL’ a Hebrew word that means: God-fearing, wise, courageous, strong, competent, active, powerful, successful, valuable, excellent, trained, worthy, victorious, honorable.

A Chayil Woman lives to honor God, her family and others. She is a servant of God, blessed by God, and blessed to be a blessing.
Examples of women in the Bible who manifested Chayil Glory:
• Deborah: A Judge and Ruler of Israel who led them in a successful warfare against the enemy kingdom of Sisera. She operated strongly in the prophetic and was a great leader of generals and priests. She juggled successfully her priorities for the priesthood, family and her governmental duties.

She boldly and with great wisdom risked her life as a mediator between the Israelis and the King of Persia. She fasted and prayed in times of decision and was granted the favor of God for great wealth and influence in Persia. Esther manifested CHAYIL Glory in worship, wisdom, power, honor, favor, wealth and influence.

She decided to create a new world for her son. God gave her His Chayil Glory with wisdom, creativity, ability, innovation, power, passion, favor, wealth, miracles and lasting honor.
Chayil Glory is available for all who put their trust in Jesus Christ. God will glorify you to show His glory in all the earth. “And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” (Is. 40:5). God’s glorious bride, His Church, will receive, manifest and give Him glory on earth: “In a loud voice they sang: ‘Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive: power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!‘” (Rev 5:12.)
Chayil is a powerful Hebrew word that describes men and woman of God who were noteworthy, sacrificial, influential, powerful and great servants of God. Chayil is holistic in its meaning. A powerful evil person is not Chayil. A rich dishonorable person is not Chayil. A famous immoral person is not Chayil.
The Chayil Pillars are worship, wisdom, power, honor, favor, wealth, influence. Chayil Pillars are seven pillars that mirror the intentional growth that our Heavenly Father designed for His Son Jesus. “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” (Luke 2:52). They describe His focused life with great character, attitudes, values, and behavior to fulfill His mission and Kingdom-purpose. Jesus lived by design and not by default, even His Name was chosen to describe His mission as Savior of the world.
These Chayil Pillars can be seen in the life of Chayil men and women who were devoted to God and lived a Purpose-Driven life for holistic success and eternal legacy.
Examples of Chayil Men in the Bible:
Abraham was a man of faith who left the security and wealth of his pagan family in Ur, to obey God in a covenant relationship and high calling. He was a committed worshiper as seen in his obedience to God; willingness to sacrifice his only son Isaac; and his practice to build altars to God wherever he lived and worked. “And where he had first built an altar. There Abram called on the name of the Lord.” (Gen. 13:4).
When his nephew Lot rose up in selfish ambition and wanted to separate from him taking the best land, Abram settled peacefully. (Gen. 13)
Lot was later captured by raiding bandits and Abraham mobilized his army of workers and warriors and saved Lot and his family. “He recovered all the goods and brought back his relative Lot and his possessions, together with the women and the other people.” (Gen. 14:16).
He honored his wife Sarah and showed her patience, respect and grace inspite their family issues. He worked through the painful times when she was captured and placed in the harem of the King of Egypt and his powerful prayers and covenant with God preserved her.
Abraham like Jesus experience favor with God and men. The king who captured Sarah ended up asking Abraham to pray and forgive him for trying to dishonor his wife. “He [the king] treated Abram well for her sake, and Abram acquired sheep and cattle, male and female donkeys, menservants and maidservants, and camels.” (Gen 12:16). What the enemy meant for evil, God worked for the good of their family. This is an example of the Chayil Glory of God.
“Abram had become very wealthy in livestock and in silver and gold.” (Gen. 13:2).
Abraham came from a pagan background as an ordinary man. He was not a perfect man, but his heart was commited to God and he became the father of nations. God honored him with a great covenant, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” (Gen. 12:3). Jesus savior of the world, is the seed of Abraham, “A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham.” (Matt. 1:1).
Now you, the Chayil grace and glory of Abraham can be yours: “He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.” (Gal. 3:14). Believers in Christ are double blessed with the blessings of Abraham and the glory of David. Chayil Glory is the powerful great glory of Christ in every believer. “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved — you and your household.” (Acts 16:31).
