Manifestation of the Sons of God


Listen to Audio

Rom 8:22-23

We know that the whole creation [of irrational creatures] has been moaning together in the pains of labor until now. [Jer 12:4,11.]

23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have and enjoy the first fruits of the [Holy] Spirit [a foretaste of the blissful things to come] groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies [from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal] our adoption (our manifestation as God's sons).


The whole of creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God. But not only the creatures but also we who have enjoyed the first fruits of the Holy spirit. What does this mean?

The whole of creation groans because things are not the way they should. The earth is not functioning properly because of the limitation it is subjected to due to the limitation of man caused by the flesh. The earth is not permitted to function in certain capacities and has been placed under certain limitations because of the fallen nature of man.

Man is not to be flesh but to be a celestial being in that we are to operate with a glorified body, the type Jesus has today, seated at the throne of God. When man fell, man became flesh.

Because of the limitation of the flesh, we are unable as children of God to walk on the earth as sons of God. We have only but a foretaste or first fruits because of the Holy Spirit. But the good news is there is coming the time when we will walk in the fullness of our inheritance in Christ Jesus. This when our bodies have been redeemed during the rapture, then we get to walk in the fullness of God’s glory as His sons on the earth.

Will be continued
