The Daily Word of Righteousness

Romans 8:20,21 continued

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (Revelation 21:4)

What is God hoping for? God is hoping that by filling us with Jesus Christ we will develop an immunity to sin so there will be no more rebellions in His creation. If you go through life without developing this immunity you can forget about being part of the royal priesthood; for the purpose of the royal priesthood is to govern the creation with the holy laws of God.

All who are willing to live under the rule of the royal priesthood will be set free from the curse placed on the creation.

Such freedom is not possible to man until the new Jerusalem, the royal priesthood of God, descends from Heaven bringing to the new earth the Glory of God.

What is Paul saying? Paul is stating that the answer to his cry, "Who shall deliver me from the body of this death," is the Spirit of the Lord working under the authority of the blood of the cross. And Paul is not the only person to be delivered, the entire material creation, including all who are saved, will enjoy for eternity the world the way it is supposed to be.

We are not implying that all people will be saved. Some will choose to reject Jesus Christ and His brothers and by doing so will prevent their participation in the new world of righteousness that is at hand. But multitudes will choose to accept Jesus Christ and His saints and thus will be permitted to live in the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea [mankind] shall be converted unto thee, the forces [wealth] of the Gentiles [nations] shall come unto thee. (Isaiah 60:5)

Don't try to make a paradise out of this world. It is cursed, accept that fact. Keep your integrity and God will teach you His ways. The knowledge of the Lord is the only treasure you will take from this cesspool of trials and tribulations.

If you will remain faithful to God the day will come when you will be set free from the bondage, frustration, futility, corruption, decay of the material creation. You will enter the new world as a ruler or a subject, depending on your calling. In any case you will be deliriously happy for eternity.

But if you choose to break out of God's prison and clutch to yourself the sordid corruptible treasures of the present age you will be judged by a frowning Christ. You will be assigned to the Kingdom or to outer darkness entirely at His discretion.

Don't be a fool. Get into the program that is going somewhere or else you will end up sitting in the sewage with a banana peel on top of your head.

Think about Calvary and you will understand that God means business!
