God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible
Chapter: Majesty On High (Pages 42-45)
READ Romans 8:18-23:
Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. (J. NLT)
READ Psalm 91:11-16:
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands (train your fingers for battle), so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. Because he loves me, says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.
We eagerly await the day when God will reveal the future glory of the new holy city, which he has planned from long ago. We all suffer as Christians in the world. This is due to the world without God, and the spirits that haunt the Earth. We must always wear the full armor of God in order to deter the temptation of evil and to steer away from bad situations. In the world there are many spirits, but remember to test the spirits to see if they are of God. Many false prophets and messiahs have come, but we must be aware of the deception that is ever present. Look to those who bring you light and truth. Look to those who know how to defend themselves against the evil spirits in the world (Remember that just by using your hands you may eliminate the wicked…for this is how the angels of God battle-Psalm 144:1). It is normal for humans to be tempted and attacked by spirits that are not of God, so be mindful of this fact. Do not allow for them to approach you by maintaining the Holy Spirit within your heart. The Holy Spirit will perfect your mind and keep you from the day of testing that is to come upon the whole Earth. It is each and every person’s job to write about your obstacles and temptations in order that you may not fall into traps laid out before you.
