Romans 8:24

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 24 For we are saved by hope;6 but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he has already seen? [In this present life we are saved by the hope of the true gospel: being purified, freed from all our sins, (even our desires to sin), to become one with Christ and God, and be translated into the kingdom, all while on earth and then forever. From the Word of the Lord within: "Hope releases the power of God to change you. There is no hope for anyone outside the power of God." Our hope motivates us to bear the inward cross of self-denial until we secure all of God's promises, when we see Jesus bring our salvation!]

1 John 3:2-3

 2 Beloved, now we are to be sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we will be, but we know that when He is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. [A Son of God is like Jesus, who is holy, harmless, pure, separate from sinners, and with no sin in Him; and when we see Him, we will be like Him. Jesus appears in the hearts of purified believers. Jesus is seen. Jesus is revealed. He who has been hidden is revealed, Christ in you, the hope of glory. From the Word of the Lord within: "You are a son when Jesus appears in your heart to guide you." Then you are like Him: holy, harmless, pure, without any sin.]

 3 And every man who has this hope in him purifies himself, even as He [Jesus] is pure.2 [From the Word of the Lord within: "We must become like Him to merge with Him." What hope?—The hope of being like Him and of seeing Jesus appear in your heart is the hope that saves and purifies you; for we are saved by hope. Rom 8:24. You must have this hope for the power of God to be released to purify you. For of this you can be sure, that no sexually immoral, or impure, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Eph 5:5. Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God, Mat 5:8. — Christ in you, the hope of glory.]
