THE REVEALING OF THE SONS OF GOD
"For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.”—Romans 8:19 (ESV)
"The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters!”—Romans 8:19 The Passion Translation (TPT)
In the mystical realm of the Kingdom of God WE ARE ALL ONE BY VIRTUE OF OUR CREATION IN GOD’S IMAGE AND LIKENESS (Genesis 1:26-28). I see the work of the gospel more in the realm of the increasing revelation and personal unfoldment of our true creation in His image. Rather than going from Point A (a lost sinner heading for hell) to Point B (getting saved and going to Heaven when we die) I see the spiritual journey as one of DISCOVERY of who we really are in Christ (the realm of God), as ALREADY being His child but living in ignorance of that truth. In that sense we are “lost,” like sheep always wandering around not knowing our true home in Christ. Living in ignorance disempowers us and thus we are subject to self-centered bondage and suffering as well as every whim and wish of our surrounding culture. As our eyes are opened to the reality of who we are in Christ we see others in an entirely new way. Barriers are broken down and sectarian tribalism vanishes in the increasing light of God’s love for all of His children which includes those who haven’t yet heard about this good news.
Study Genesis 1:26-31, Romans 8:19, and 1 John 3:1-3. Consult as many translations as you can.
