30 Moreover those whom he predestined, he also called; and those whom he called, he also justified; and those whom he justified, he also glorified. [You who think you are justified because you believe that Jesus is the Son of God; are you glorified? Have you experienced Jesus declaring your name to His brothers, in the midst of the congregation [of Heaven] and Him singing praise to you? Psa 22:22. If yes, then for sure you are justified. George Fox wrote: "He who has Him, has life, justification, sanctification, and redemption...they possess righteousness, glory, substance, the end of their faith, and Christ their hope, that remains and abides."]
27 To whom God would make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery in the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory;5 [There are five stages of Christ being formed within you; see The Mystery, Christ in You for the detailed understanding. In his sermon early Quaker Stephen Crisp, who dwelled in the kingdom, testified that in one day under the government of Christ, (in the kingdom), one has more joy, pleasure, and delight than a thousand days outside it.]
|2 Corinthians 4:17|
17 For our light affliction, which is only for a moment, produces for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
4 When Christ, who is our life, appears, then you will also appear with him in glory.3 [2000 years ago in the Book of Revelation Jesus told the church in Thyatira "hold fast until I come!" Jesus does not deceive people, and the people He addressed are long gone from this earth. For his statement to be true, He had to have come to them thousands of years ago. He comes to every man in all generations who has worked hard to follow His spoken commands to them. The return of Jesus is a personal experience in the hearts of purified believers; He is seen, He appears, He is revealed. From the Word of the Lord within: "I will come again to the elect; I will be their crown to lead and guide them."]
|2 Corinthians 3:10|
10 For even that which was made glorious has no glory now, because of the glory that excels it.
|2 Thessalonians 2:14|
14 To which he called you by our gospel, that you might obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
|Hebrews 2:10 |
10 For it was fitting of God, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
