4 When [hotan] Christ, [Christos] who is
our [hemon] life, [zoe]
shall appear, [phaneroo] then [tote] shall [phaneroo] ye [humeis] also [kai] appear [phaneroo] with [sun] him [autos] in [en] glory. [doxa]KJV-Interlinear
4 When Christ, who is our life,
is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory. NASB
This is a transformation
verse.When Christ is revealed, occurs
within us by the transformation of our minds within our spiritual growth, as we
ascend toward spiritual maturity.
And likewise, as Christ
is hidden in heaven since the day of His ascension, so too our glory is hidden
within our soul, and will be revealed, or extended to the members of our
physical body, when our resurrection occurs.
Likewise, all truth and
life is hidden within the principles and instruction of Bible doctrine. No unbeliever,
no out of fellowship believer, can discover the hidden truths of Bible doctrine.
Christy will be
revealed to the world in two phases.
First, He sits at the
right hand of the Father, waiting until the numbers of believers from our
current dispensation, are fulfilled, as well as waiting for the nations (peoples,
countries, attitudes, etc.) to be assembled and arrayed for the termination of
our dispensation.When that moment
occurs, then the Rapture will occur.
Recall our study at the
beginning of Revelation.Jesus Christ is
at the lever of human history. His hand on the lever, and arm flexed with bulging
muscles (symbolic for immediate readiness), ready to throw the lever of history
into the very next phase.That phase
being the Rapture.
When the Rapture
occurs, then we (believers of our dispensation) will all be raised in
resurrection and transformed into resurrection bodies.
1 Thess. 4:16
16 For the Lord Himself
will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and
with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first. NASB
Therefore, just as our
minds are transformed in our spiritual growth to maturity, so too, then our
bodies will be transformed into resurrection bodies, adding yet another
component toward our ultimate completion.
And with Christ, with
the culmination of our individual evaluation at the Judgment Seat of Christ, we
(mature believers), will be completed into our glory, along with Christ.
And second, at the end
of the Tribulation (which is a seven year period following the Rapture), then
Christ will be revealed once again, but this time to the entire world at the
Second Advent.We who were Raptured, will
return along with Him, in His glory, and we, dressed in our glory (resurrection
bodies) and numbering in vast numbers (clouds, because there will be so many of
us) will appear to the world along with Him at His Second Advent.
The magnitude of your blessing
and glory, is directly related to the degree of your
advancement to spiritual maturity.You
have an opportunity now, in this life, to maximize your future.Or you can simply ignore it all.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
