“…To demonstrate in the coming ages the surpassing wealth of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus” (Eph. 2:7 NET).
Grace came on a mission to bring man into the eternal glory of God. The Lord is going to use believers to display the riches of His grace that have been poured out upon us. This will start on this present earth, and its fullness will be in the world to come. Have you ever read the Bible and then said to yourself, “Are these things really true?” or “Why is the church so different from what God supposedly says He has made us to become?” The church, like a little baby, was born and is slowly growing to maturity. Before Christ returns, there will be a display of the sons of God, men and women who have developed to full spiritual maturity in Christ and who fully express the beauties of God’s power, wisdom, and love on earth. We are actually moving into those days right now—the days of God’s glory on the earth!
This coming glory will be by a full revelation of the grace of God. It will not be a man’s work or some religious denomination’s doing. The church has to fully understand grace, which is Jesus Christ Himself, to develop fully in His image and to live completely as Him on the earth. This move of God will be ushered in by the latter rain, which is the revelation of God’s Word that comes down like rain from heaven (Isa. 55:10-11)! There will be an intensification of the revelation of grace that will bombard the Church. It is the doing of God to usher in the glory, and it has already started. Christian religious systems that will not let God do His thing will crumble and be left behind. Get plugged in into God’s wave, for it is the most exciting moment for the Church of God!
How will God demonstrate the wealth of His grace in your life? See Eph. 2:10.
APPLY THE WORD
The greatest hindrance of God today on the earth is not sin or Satan. It is His own people, whether by unbelief, religious spirit, resisting the Holy Spirit, or any other means. Open your heart to God from this day onward to allow Him His way in your life, and you will see the glory of God revealed.
Pray that you will not be left behind in this glorious end-time move of God.
