“For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God” (Romans 8:19) (ESV). If ever there has been anything of utmost importance, in this world, it is reveling God’s children. As Paul states, the whole creation awaits in anticipation of that dramatic event.
As human beings, we all lost our heritage of being God’s children, through the Garden of Eden incident. Left in that hopeless condition, everyone gropes in darkness, as characterized in world religions and denominational confusion in Christianity. As the prophet Isaiah declares: “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned —everyone—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6) (ESV).
God’s word is clear, in that humanity was created in God’s image, in order to have dominion over everything that God created. The reason why it is necessary to reveal God’s children is that not everyone can be classified as God’s child, even though everyone was created in God’s image. I suppose, the entire creation can tell who is and who would not be God’s child.
However, as the last part of the passage in Isaiah’s prophecy reveals; the Lord laid the iniquities of the entire world on Jesus. Whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). The aim of this post is to reveal God’s children. The necessity for revealing God’s children is driven by too much confusion in Christianity.
