Called to Share His Glory


Published on

This is a message of comfort. God has BIG plans for all Christians when they get to heaven. He will glorify us in ways we cannot imagine. Look at the biblical proof that God has always planned to do this for all His adopted children who come to Him through faith in Jesus!

Go here to see my comments about how this teaching differs from Mormon false teachings about God and heaven.

  9. 9. God Longs to Glorify US! • “The glory that You have given Me I have given to them. John 17:22 • And we all…are being transformed into the same image ( of Jesus) from one degree of glory to another. 2 Cor 3:18 • The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with Him in order that we may also be GLORIFIED with him. Rom 8:16-17 • And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified. Romans 8:30
  10. 10. God Longs to Glorify Us • As His Sons and daughters • As brothers & sisters of Jesus • As the Bride of Jesus • As heirs of God & joint-heirs of Jesus • God gave Jesus ALL power and authority. We share in that!

  14. 14. What If…. • One day, God decided to glorify Himself in other galaxies? • God called us to work alongside Him to build other worlds and civilizations-as Jesus did? • God put groups of us in charge of new Eden-like worlds with legions of angelic to help? • Why not? He did with His First- Born of many brethren— Jesus!
  15. 15. “ But we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before the ages TO OUR GLORY but just as it is written: ‘Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard,
 And which have not entered the heart of man,
 All that God has prepared for those who love Him.’” 1 Cor. 2:7-9 Therefore, Comfort one another with these words!
