Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified (Romans 8:30).
Jesus is all-powerful. But just like in the book of Hebrews that tells us about those who had the possibility of deliverance but rejected deliverance, that they might have a greater glory (Hebrews 11:35), Jesus accepted the death on the cross. He laid down His glory, and suffered for us. The Bible says He gave up everything for our sake (Philippians 2:7 CEV). Today in heaven, He’s crowned with all glory and majesty. He’s the glorified Christ.
Now, 1 John 4:17 tells us something profound. It says, “…as he (the glorified Jesus) is, so are we in this world.” It doesn’t say, “…as he was, so are we.” We’re as He is NOW!
He’s the second and last Adam, because He heads the new creation of which we’re a part. Hallelujah! So, you’re not from the first Adam; you can’t be traced to him. When you’re in Christ, there’re no records that trace you to the first Adam, because the Bible says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
We’re partakers, as well as bearers, of His glory. Jesus gave us the same glory that the Father gave to Him: “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one” (John 17:22). Today, you have become the very effulgence of God’s glory, just as Jesus is. The Bible says, “…He received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (2 Peter 1:17).
Get to know about the invaluable treasure God has deposited within you. He’s given you not just His life, His peace and His righteousness; He’s also given you His excellent glory.
Just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so do I live a new life of dominion oversickness, disease, infirmity, poverty, and the devil. I’m seated together with Christ in heavenly places, where I reign and rule with Him. Hallelujah!
[Even] the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27. To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
1 Peter 1:10-11
Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace [that should come] unto you:
11. Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
2 Corinthians 3:18
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, [even] as by the Spirit of the Lord.
