Text: Colossians 1: 27. To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
The earth was formless and void with darkness all over the face when God created the world, and God said: “Let there be light and there was light”. Genesis 1:1-3.
After the fall of man and the impossibility of men to redeem men, God sent His only son Jesus Christ to redeem men and restore men back to God.
Now, to access God, we pass through the son Jesus Christ. John 14:6.
The world is covered with darkness and all sorts of evil even right from the days of creation.
When Jesus came, He had to introduce Himself again to the world as the light that was called to illuminate the earth.
And Jesus further said, that as many that will follow Him, will not walk in darkness, a walk with the world and her style is a walk of darkness. John 8:12.
I want us to understand clearly from the scripture, that God only created, built, designed, the Heavens and the earth and man.
God never created the light with His hands, the light was already in existence. God only called forth the light Jesus His son, to illuminate the dark earth.
And through the light, God called forth every other thing into existence.
We can take this example, when you build a house, furnishing the house will match the thoughts in your mind.
So the designs and creative works that were called forth into existence were the beautiful thoughts and mind of God.
Before He created man. Genesis 1:26-27.
By the reason of the finished work of Christ on the cross, as many that have received Him and will receive Him have full access to the secret place of God.
Colossians 1:15-23 tells us better. Thus;
Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16. For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17. And he is before all things, and by him, all things consist. 18. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20. And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth or things in heaven. 21. And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22. In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight: 23. If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister.
Jesus Christ has become our hope of Glory in this world.
Jesus Christ is the future and gateway to everlasting life.
The Hope of Glory is not a Life of riches and wealth alone, but a key that takes us away from this dark world.
Is Christ living in you?
Are you sure if your eternity is secured?
Do you want to break free from the evil and dark spirits of this world?
Then you need Jesus Christ in your life.
He gives your life a meaning when you allow Him in.
He illuminates every part of your life.
The devil loses hold over your life, your family, your marriage, your business, your finance and everything that concerns you when you give them all to Jesus Christ.
I want the world to know that the true riches and Glory of this world is found in Christ alone.
Rich in health.
Rich in finance.
Rich spiritually and in all ramifications of life.
If you want Jesus Christ to come in your life today, say this prayer by faith with all of your heart.
I acknowledge I am a sinner for my sins are not hidden from you.
I confess all of my sins to you this day.
I believe you died on the cross and rose again to set me free.
And I confess you this day as the Lord and personal savior of my life.
I denounce the devil every work of the flesh.
Wash me with your blood Jesus.
Write my name this day in the book of life.
I pray the Lord bless you with every spiritual benefit of your new faith in Him.
I pray the peace of the Lord over any troubled part of your life.
May the light of the Lord deliver the treasures of the earth into your hands as you labor faithfully in Jesus name.
