our hope is Christ in us!
Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
WOOHOOO. into the celestials/heavenlies. for ever to be with the LORD.
there are many thoughts on this, my thought is, us in this age will be of the celestial kingdom not an earthly kingdom, that is reserved for the earthly nation of Israel.
Act 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
Act 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons
, which the Father hath put in his own power.
Couldnt Jesus had said "" the kingdom is not of this earth but in the heavens"" at this point?
he did say:
Jhn 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now
is my kingdom not from hence.
lots of people use this verse to say there is/will be no kingdom IN this world.
i disagree, at this point, someone change my mind
