The world to come

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Heb 2:5-8

And furthermore, it is not angels who will control the future world we are talking about. 6 For in one place the Scriptures say,

"What are people that you should think of them,

or a son of man* that you should care for him?

7 Yet you made them only a little lower than the angels

and crowned them with glory and honor.*

8 You gave them authority over all things."*

NLT

Further study: Rom 8:19-end

There is a world to come, and that world and age is a glorious one, one showing forth the manifestation of the sons of God. This world will be controlled by man and not by angels. This one will be absolutely controlled by the sons of God.

We humans have been made a little lower than the angels and this is not a permanent state, when our bodies  have been redeemed(transformed and glorified) we will be crowned with glory and honor, just like Christ Jesus who is our first born, and we will be given dominion over all things. All things in this context are not limited to things on the earth.

This current world and age is controlled by angels; it is controlled by the prince of this world, who is the prince of the power of the air, who is the devil, who is a fallen angel.

God made the earth for man to rule over not for fallen angels, and until humans take back control of the earth, the earth will never be free but will continue to groan. This is the freedom that Jesus came to give us. There is now the chance of peace on earth and good will towards man because Jesus has come to take away the sin of the whole world.

Will you reign and rule with Jesus Christ in the world to come?

You get to determine this by working the works that the lord has sent you while it is day…Selah
