We the Saints Shall... Change... Praise God!

Below is only a small excerpt from a 3 part series by Pastor Francis Riley:   

I chose this because of the tremendously powerful truth of the amazing age to come, this sums up in a nutshell what God intends for His true Saints very very soon.  Hallelujah!    Praise God! Thank you Jesus.  Come quickly, Amen!

" When the great Pre-tribulation resurrection and rapture “harvest” occurs, every true New Covenant believer’s body will be instantly “changed,” [1 Corinthians 15:51-52] “that it may be fashioned like unto His glorious body, according to the working whereby He is able even to subdue all things unto Himself,” Philippians 3:21.   Glory!  Hallelujah!  Praise the Lord!
     I could write an entire Bible study [or book] on the “change” alone, but I have neither the time nor the inclination to do so.   Note just these few points gathered from the inspired Word, and let them encourage and motivate our readers to a deeper study of the “change” we New Covenant believers will experience when the resurrection and rapture occurs…..   
     Our resurrection and “changed” bodies will be like the body of Christ, Philippians 3:20-21; 1 John 3:2. 
     We shall be “caught up” to New Jerusalem where Christ sits at the right hand of the Heavenly Father, John 14:1-3; Hebrews 1:1-4; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17. 
     We shall be “unveiled” to the whole creation as “the sons of God,” Romans 8:18-23. 
     We shall be neither Jews nor Gentiles, neither bond slaves nor free [not totally independent], neither male nor female, but rather a totally new “creation” [species of mankind], James 1:18; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 3:28; Colossians 3:10-11.  
     We shall bear the “image of Christ” in our new bodies, even as we presently bear the image of Adam in the flesh, Romans 8:29-30; 1 Corinthians 15:49; 2 Corinthians 3:18.  
     We shall return to “the days of our youth” [the prime of life], Job 33:23-26. 
     We shall never know sickness, infirmity, or old age again, 1 Corinthians 15:42-44.
     We shall be equal to the angels of God, Luke 20:34-36. 
     We shall be ministered to by the angels of God, Hebrews 1:13-14. 
     We shall inherit all things God has prepared for us as “sons of God” and “heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ,” Romans 8:14-17; 1 Corinthians 2:9. 
     We shall rule and reign with Christ over “the world to come,” Hebrews 2:5-8.
     We shall serve as “kings and priests” throughout all of “the ages to come,” Revelation 1:5-6. 
     We shall commute between the earth, where we will reign as kings over the nations with Christ, and New Jerusalem above the earth which will be our eternal home, Revelation 21:2; 21:24-26. 
     This list just barely “scratches the surface” of what the Lord God has prepared for us who are New Covenant believers, but these few points should thrill the heart and soul of every true New Covenant believer.   If any reader claiming to be a New Covenant believer is not blessed by these promises set forth in God’s Word for true believers, then perhaps those readers should carefully study 2 Corinthians 13:5 and 2 Peter 1:10 again, and do some serious heart searching.  Only true believers will enter into and experience these glorious promises of God “in the ages to come.”  Regardless of one’s “profession,” those who are lost in sin will miss it all, and a vain “religious profession” won’t help a bit, Matthew 7:21-23.  Every reader needs to take heed!

  1. Praise God! You know Sarah, I just, this morning had a major revelation from the Holy Spirit. Just as our Lord had / has (grammar tense expresses time and time as we know it has no constraint on God) 2 missions: 1 as a Lamb and 1 as a King. We too are here looked upon by grievous wolves as lambs and in the age to come we shall serve our Lord Jesus as kings and judges over the age to come Revelation 1:5-6. When I woke this morning there were some things on my mind that were very disturbing, reviewing events of this past year and the Holy Spirit told me, "The reason these things upset you is because you still have much "love for this world" in your heart. Let go of these things, do not be concerned about the wrongs done to you but ensure you've done no wrong. Cast your cares upon Jesus, set you mind on the things of Christ which is in essence, Seek ye first the kingdom of God... and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you>'" Amen! In other words we are NOT to focus on these temporal things as far as setting our hearts on them we are in the world, not of it.... We are to focus on the unseen, the age to come... Praise God.. Hallelujah! I think the acid test of a Christian is the question of "where is your heart? What things matter most to you?" Amen! May God grant us by His great grace and empower us by the Holy Spirit Through Jesus Christ to be in the world but NOT of it and to SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD... AMEN!
