"For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God's sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship]." (Romans 8:19 AMPC)
The whole universe is waiting for our manifestation. It mean then there is something peculiar about the glorious revealing of God's children. Our full manifestation, in this present world and in heaven, will benefit all creatures including humans. God's intention for us is to subdue all creatures and command them to obey Him. This will be achieved by living the life of Christ, the eternal life that carries light. The light can then shine in darkness and thereby confounding it. It was glorious for Daniel and his friends to stand for God and manifest the eternal life, even amongst the heathen. They subdued Babylon and the subsequent kingdoms, without military powers but with holy and pure lives that emanated from God.
There is a groaning and expectation across the lands. Men and women of integrity are becoming very rare. God wants to raise a people that will return sanity into all human systems. He is preparing them in discipleship with Himself and other of His mature children. Advancement in science and technology will not deliver the human race from the impending decadence.
"You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden."(Matthew 5:13-14 AMPC)
God in His infinite wisdom, decided to make us salt and light that will be the solution to the current challenges in our society. One of the highlights of the Welsh revival that keeps me fancinated, was not the miracles and prosperity of the time, but the fact that the police and the entire judicial system became redundant due to the fact that majority of the people became Christians and there were no criminals. Most bars and recreational centres that were dedicated to immoral practices, were closed down due to lack of customers.
The question is "when are we going to manifest Christ's life and terminate corruption in our lands?"
