All things IN Christ!

“The whole creation is on tiptoe to see the wonderful sight of the sons of God coming into their own. (this is the moment of our glorification) The world of creation cannot as yet see reality, not because it chooses to be blind, but because in God’s purpose it has been so limited, yet it has been given hope. And the hope is that in the end the whole of created life will be rescued from the tyranny of change and decay, and have its share in the magnificent Liberty which can only belong to the children of God. It is plain to anyone with eyes to see that at the present time all created life groans in a sort of universal travail. And it is plain, too, that we who have the foretaste of the Spirit are in a state of painful tension, while we wait for the redemption of our bodies (that is being glorified—as the final act of our redemption at which point we are blessed with a glorified body) which will mean that at last we have realized our full sonship in him.” Romans 8: 19-23 Phillips translation.
Bless God for that day of glorification to be for His many sons.

In Romans 8:20 it reads in the KJV ---->For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

It was God who cursed the earth, the serpent, and cast out both the man and the woman. It is at this point that the whole creation was made subject to vanity, futility and decay. Not of its own will, but by reason of HIM who subjected the same in hope.

How the church world misses that truth. They some how think all was perfect in the beginning. Yet in the garden WAS the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and God KNEW the serpent was to be in the garden. Come on church you think God was stupid? asleep at the wheel?

".....before the foundation of the world ...." He knew what was needed for us ---->For He chose us in Him (CHRIST) before the foundation of the world to be HOLY and BLAMELESS in His presence. In love Ephesians 1:4

A new day is coming for ALL creation and IN that day ALL creation shall find liberty from the bondage of corruption! For that day shall appear when the glorified sons of God shall be manifested!!!!!

Yes! What a day that will be indeed.

I can recall leaving Kenya with Romans 8:19 upon my heart and I shared with a dear Brother the verses and told him the Father will reveal them to me. Time went by and slowly the Father opened my understanding to His will and purpose.

Now there is also steps or progressive revelation in Romans 8:18-25

        .... firstfruits of the Spirit ..... groan within ourselves ..... waiting for the adoption

The redemption of our bodies is the event that will take us on our journey to a glorified state of being.

“As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, WHEN I AWAKE, WITH THY LIKENESS.” Psalm 17:15

Now I like for us to look at the word "redemption" in Romans 8:23. But before I do lets look over to the word "redemption" in Hebrews 9:12 ---->Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption (lutrosis) for us.

The word redemption means a ransoming, or lutrosis in Hebrews 9:12; However in Romans 8:23 it means apolutrosis, which in turn means metamorphosis — like a caterpillar being changed into a butterfly.

In other words we see salvation for the body (the whole man).

It shall be a new day indeed when we shall put on our “redeemed bodies” and be loosen from all restrictions. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 1 Corinthians 15:53,54

Even Christ Jesus spoke of such a glorurious time ---->The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and wither it goeth : so is every one that is born of the Spirit.” John 3:8

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit (becomes spirit.). John 3:6

GLORY! One day this mortal flesh, this corruptible flesh shall put on a glorified body and be as He is!

Even Apostle Paul knew when by the Holy Spirit he wrote ---->“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 1 Corinthians 15:50-53

Now this DOES suggest that our glorification will happen in a pre-determined time frame, and those who have passed on before us, will not be against the unfolding of our glorification.

Even Job, YES! Job knew ---->And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet IN MY FLESH SHALL I "SEE" GOD." Job 19:26.

It was not enough for Paul to say that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. He GOES ON TO SAY “For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, AND WE SHALL BE CHANGED!!!!!!

Let all know the kingdom of heaven is within and not some heavenly city floating upon the clouds as MYSTERY BABYLON the lying church teaches.

Let the sons of God know we will possess human-like bodies: (like Job saying in his flesh, he will see God.) except in this case, the human factor will have been taken away, and we are left with what looks like human bodies but are in fact incorruptible and immortal bodies.

Ohhhhhhh you say!

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, THE DOORS BEING SHUT, and STOOD in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.

Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and THRUST it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. John 8:26-28

As He is so shall we be!

“So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal (mortal human beings) shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.” 1 Corinthians 15:51-58

The Apostle Paul was so sure of this day that he by the Holy Spirit penned these comforting words for us ---->And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; (totally—completely) and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5: 23.

The blue print of God's plan shall be seen! Our human, mortal, fleshly restrictions will suddenly pass away as we experience our metamorphosis, a changing to our glorified bodies to be forever with Him in His ETERNAL LIFE!

For His Word shows us that those whom He did predestinate, he also called, and also did justify, with the promise that they shall also be GLORIFIED!

“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6

God is not as man in that He would lie but He is faithful to His Word and will do as He said ---->Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.” Isaiah 46: 10.

Even the Apostle John wrote: “Beloved, now are we the sons of God (thank you Jesus!!) and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.” 1 John 3:2

We do not need to see him as a babe in a manger or as the prophet describes him: “He hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him: he was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he was brought as a lamb to the slaughter; etc. Isaiah 53:2,7

We need to see Him as HE IS! Our high priest seated ON the right hand of the majesty on high. As the Apostle Paul referred to him as “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

“For we are members of HIS BODY, of HIS FLESH, and of HIS BONES.” Ephesians 5:30

Let me close with this thought, this truth; many are on the edge of their seats anxiously awaiting the man Jesus to emerge from behind a blazing sun as taught by MYSTERY BABYLON, others already know that Christ fills the earth in His called. And as the Potter cleans up the clay according to His will and purpose, the kiln shall be ready for the firing of the clay!

“Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire (no person shall avoid or escape the fire) and the fire shall try (test) every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”1 Corinthians 3: 13-15

Now we BEHOLD God’s blue print that was birthed in Himself that began before time began; and will carry us to the point when time as we know it will no longer exist.

Having MADE KNOWN UNTO US THE MYSTERY OF HIS WILL, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might GATHER TOGETHER IN ONE ALL THINGS IN CHRIST, both which are IN HEAVEN, and which are ON EARTH; even in him: .... Ephesians 1: 9,10
