“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.” Roman 8:30…….
May what I am about to say be a blessing to you and make you see God for who He really is, as suppose to whom you want Him to be for YOU!
Romans 3:23 tells me that human became separated from transcendent life due to Adam’s transgression. Every one of us is born a sinner and short of God glory! This verse however is often used by many who have confessed Roman 10:9 wrongly and this frustrates me because it makes Christ death look like nothing!
Do you not know that as the result of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ the glory that was once lost unto man is NOW restored! From the very moment you were born again, you were brought into the life of Glory and if you look at the tenses of Roman 8:30; you will identify four vital realities concerning the NEW CREATION which by the way is the result of salvation as consummated by Christ Jesus.
Now let us look at the four vital realities:-
- You are predestined by God: – This means that your life has been planned with purpose and destiny by God.
- You are called of God: – This means that you have been elected, chosen and appointed by God unto the good life. You are being born or should I say, you are coming out of God!
- You have been Justified: – This means that you have been declared to be righteous; there are no charges against you because you’re a new creation. (It does not mean that you have to fall, as many old saints told me that ‘everyone who is born again has to fall, its normal’!) I come here to confirm to you that it’s not true and YOU will not fall in Jesus mighty name and know that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
- You’ve been glorified: – This simply means that God has crowed you with His glory and you have been brought into a life of beauty, excellence, success and prosperity.
Please understand that these things aren’t things to happen when you get to heaven, they are things which should already happen now that you are saved. You are no longer short of Glory of God because you’ve been glorified. In Jesus prayer to God our father in John 17:22 He said: “And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one”……Jesus brought us into the glory-life and you were born again so that you will show forth the excellencies, virtues, splendour and perfections of Him who has called you out of darkness.
Yes all human became separated from the glory of God because of sin; however the glory has been restored in Christ Jesus and Colossians 1:27 declares “……Christ in you, the hope of glory:” God wants you to know that there is glory in your life NOW and God above also wants you to walk in it! These things I write to you is not because I have nothing better to do that I write them, No!
Isaiah 55:11 says “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” and I say these things because I am applying God’s words and I am a living proof that His words carries LIFE!
When you understand the bible wrong, the entry of the word will be wrong and the results will be unfruitfulness, hardship etc but when you apply God’s word rightfully, it prevails and produces fruitful result under all circumstances. Matthew 24:35 says that “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away.”
God is confident about the efficacy of His Word and wants YOU to know it so that you can trust and believe that the word works all the time, that way, you will commit to it and apply it to your personal life. God’s word is the number one change-agent and when you apply it to your situations, you will have a testimony.
