The Resurrection 2

🔊Get Audio Version Here☞
Philippians 3:20-21 (NET) But our citizenship is in heaven – and we also await a savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform these humble bodies of ours into the likeness of his glorious body by means of that power by which he is able to subject all things to himself.

Before Adam and Eve sinned and fell short of the glory of God, they were glorified and could do many things today’s fallen man cannot do. Adam was the one who singlehandedly named all other living creatures on the earth; he gave them their working manual (See Genesis 2:19). Collectively, fallen man is still discovering aquatic species even today, things Adam already singlehandedly named.

Jesus, the last Adam, came to redeem man and bring us back into glory. He already has the glorified body since his resurrection over 2000 years ago. That's why he could ascend bodily into heaven (flesh and blood cannot do this). When He returns, we too will be changed into the likeness of His glorious body. This is when we would be able to walk in our fullness as sons of God (See 1 John 3:2, Romans 8:23). This is when creation will also be redeemed from the bondage of corruption.

The fallen man is no match for the glorified man. That's why when the Lord returns to the earth (and we His glorified saints with him) to take over the government of the earth, the people of the earth still in this beggarly state would try to resist, but it wouldn't be much of a contest. They would have no choice but to submit to Christ as their king, and we as their rulers(see 1 Corinthians 6:2, Daniel 7:22, Jude 1:14-15, Revelation 20:4).

Go into today remembering that because you are in Christ, you will inherit eternal glory during the resurrection. The best this present world has to offer is no match for the least we will get in the coming kingdom.

Prayer: Lord, help me live in the consciousness of your great eternal plans for me. Deliver me from worldliness and help me set my affection on things above.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
