Colossians 1:5 (NET)
Your faith and love have arisen from the hope laid up for you in heaven, which you have heard about in the message of truth, the gospel
When the gospel was first preached to the people in Colossi, they were told about the hope of their calling. They understood that they were now part of an eternal kingdom that will soon be made visible to every eye. They understood that they were going to be resurrected with the kind of Body that Christ possesses right now (Phil 3:21). A body that makes it possible for Him to partake in the realms of heaven and earth (spiritual and physical realms), for Jesus ascended bodily into heaven. A body that could never be destroyed- one that would reveal our true unlimited nature as sons of God (see Romans 8:23 in AMP version).
In this body, we would have the power to easily and naturally speak to literal mountains and command them to move into the ocean. We would not need to study books in order to have the deepest knowledge of things, for we would know all things, including the secrets of the universe.
When Jesus physically returns to this world with His saints (Jude 1:14), we would literally take over the governments of this world and rule over the world and judge both people and angels (see 1 Cor 6:2-3). We would be irresistible because we would come with glorified indestructible bodies with unlimited power.
This is a brief summary of the hope laid up for you as a believer. Anyone that has this hope purifies himself (read 1 John 3:2-3).
Many believers do not understand the hope that they have been called into, and their faith wanes because they limit their hope to earthly expectations.
Go into today remembering that you are part of God’s eternal kingdom if you believe in Christ Jesus.
