“When Christ, our life, is revealed, then you will also be revealed with him in glory.”
Here in this verse we have the essence of the Book of Revelation. It is the comfort of the saints of God in the midst of a crooked and perverse world.
Christ Jesus has been revealed in human form at the incarnation, but one day will be fully revealed and appear in all His glory as the Lord of the worlds and every living being. Every knee will bow to Him and all glory will be His. All those who are safe in His keeping and sheltering under His holy rule will be kept safe and will be revealed in His glory also.
Do not worry about being a person of no significance. You are a daughter or a son of the eternal kingdom and one day the Lord will put everything right. One day the skies will burst open and the Son will shine and we will not look back. The last battle will be over in an instant and the majesty of the Lord Jesus will be seen.
What a happy day that will be for every saint of God. The wrongs will melt away into the light of the kingdom come and every battle with self and sin will be finally over. We shall enter our eternal inheritance with great joy and the power of the Spirit of God will indwell us fully and fill our who souls with light. The kingdom will come it all its power and splendour and we shall reign with Christ forever. These facts ought to make a difference in our lives now, as we look forward to that time of complete renewal, when all the promises of God will be fully honoured.
We shall see our Saviour and our eternal life will begin in Him. We can enter into that reality now in the power of the Holy Spirit and know the joy of the Lord. This is our eternal destiny. Beloved, we lift our eyes off the here and now, the battles, the heartache and the disappointments and know the love of God burning in our hearts. God will bring all things to full fruition for the good and blessing of His people.
“We know that the Son of God has come, and has given us an understanding, that we know him who is true, and we are in him who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.”
1 John 5:20
