Fw: all must wait

Romans 8:19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.... 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.  23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.
God's plans have a flow...starting with the ages prior to Creation, leading through the Creation and history of man and the fall from intimacy with God followed by the determined plan of God to reconcile with man and the crowning act of redemption on the Cross, succeeded by two millenia of church formation years.
But there are yet events to take place...great and wondrous events...and Romans 8 tells us that, not only do we wait as believers to come directly into God's presence.  Not only are there mysteries and untold wonders ahead for the believer as Heaven becomes our reality....there are wonders that the rest of creation awaits as they wait to see who will these people be who will be called the sons of God.
There is a great victory coming that far surpasses our personal salvation as the corruption brought by rebellion is quelled, peace reigns finally supreme and the family of God, formed from the children of men, are made known.
Are you one who eagerly waits for these events to take place?  Will you also be born again, by faith, to become a child of God?

"Death is inevitable.  Life is a choice!"

John 11:25
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live."
