Wait on the LORD: be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart;
wait, I say, on the LORD.

Not Yet, But Eventually! 7/24/2011
In the Name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, we approach the final portion of chapter 8 of Apostle Paul's letter to the Romans. This chapter is like the Mount Everest of this particular letter, as it closes with the emphatic statement of faith by our beloved brother in Christ, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." 8:38-39 It is like an orchestra has been playing various selections, slowly but methodically working towards the final part of the program, with the richness of the meaning of the selections working together to build to the climax and high point of the program.

Remembering where we left off in last weeks meditation, we might ask ourselves: How did Paul get from describing the groanings of the creation as it awaits its renewal, our groanings as we await our ultimate adoption, i.e. the redemption of our bodies, to being persuaded that nothing is able to separate him from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus? What caused the transition from groaning inwardly, howbeit in hope, to him being persuaded of the faithfulness of God?

Our text of meditation is verses 26-39. Here are the verses:

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. {because: or, that}
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

After writing of the groanings of the creation awaiting its deliverance, of our groanings awaiting our deliverance, we now see another groaning that is referred to: The groanings of the Holy Spirit as He intercedes for us. We note that the first significant mention of the Holy Spirit came in Romans 5:5, when Paul wrote, "And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."

The next mention is Romans 7:6 "But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter." Not until the beginning of the chapter of which we are currently meditating upon, Romans 8, does he begin to unpack the significance and meaning of the Holy Spirit and His relationship to us as His indwelt people. Being led by the Spirit of God means that we are the sons of God, (8:14), for it is a Spirit of adoption and not of bondage, and a Spirit that causes us to cry, Abba, Father.

We know that we belong to our Heavenly Father, He loves us, cares for us, has our best (eternal) interests in mind and, therefore, we live in this knowledge and experience of belonging. We are loved. Perhaps nothing is more destructive and hindering to our understanding that God loves us than to have been unloved or ungraced by those in authority over us in our developing years. It can cause us to look for love that we did not receive. He then goes onto to say, "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us".(8:18), which then leads to a discussion which concerns real life: He points to the groanings that are experienced by the creations; the earth and ourselves. For there is always the tension between that which God says is true and that which we believe, know and experience. That is because we yet live in the "not yet."


He then explains concerning the intercessory assistance of the Holy Spirit, for He is not only an earnest (guarantee,promise) of our inheritance, He is not only a testifier between our Father and ourselves of our inclusion in His family, the body of Christ, but He also is an active part of our every day life through intercessory prayer on our behalf "with groanings that cannot be verbalized."

"Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God." 8:26-27

Out of sync.
We understand all of this, as we age, for no one needs to tell us that we are feeling the effects of this decaying process. We are subject to this, and we are awaiting the day when all will be restored to its completeness. We live in the "not yet." We are waiting for the buying back of our body, the adoption. We are living in hope, for we do not yet see it. For if we could see it, it would not be hope. We live in this reality since when we get up in the morning, we feel tired, we do not bounce back, we get sick, so it is no mystery for us. We feel that we are out of sync concerning our existence, and it is our hope the one day it will be put into sync to what it once was.

Therefore, with patience we wait for it, for it is promised to us and it is a matter of time until we see it. We are like the old transmission of years ago, when there was no synchronized gears, and one had to do various things in order to make the gears mesh. In today's world, we now have synchronized transmissions. That is what it will be like when we leave the "not yet" to the perfect world.

We all know the unrest that can come upon us, the feelings of uncertainty, and which root cause is due to the brokenness that came upon us as a result of our fall out of relationship with our Creater and Father. Even though we have been restored through Christ, yet in our humanness, we often feel lost, we get sick, we have disappointment of all sorts, and we often are grasping for meaning and purpose in life. And too often we look away from God, for this fulfilment in places that do not fulfill, forgetting that we are loved by God, we are united with HIm in His Son and that ultimately to know and experience His love and joy in us brings peace and harmony to all our relationships.

A famous quote by Augustine: "Lord, you have made us for yourself and our hearts are restless until we find our rest in you."

I was reading the testimony of a person who had been seeking meaning and purpose for her existence, and after many years this person had this to say through a poem. She said,
Love has always been there in the chaos of this world...
It is God's love that turns that chaos into joy...
So Love went on reaching
And Love went on longing
Right past the shackles of my mind;
And the Love of the Father became Mary's little Son
And His love reached all the way to where I was. *
So instead of searching for love, I have learned to receive it from Him, and in being able to receive it, I can say, The Lord is my shepherd, He is everything that I need or could want.


We would like to have it all layed out in front of us, and when we are depressed and despondent, the Spirit helps us in our weaknesses. When we are not able to even know what to pray for as we should, the Holy Spirit approaches God with requests and petitions that cannot be put into words. God the Father and God the Spirit work in unison in this manner. Here we see that our ability to live in this world is dependent upon the Holy Spirit. We really do not know what is good or best for us, but the Holy Spirit communes with God through us and in us, bringing to fruition that which He wants because He is in us.

II. All Things are Working For Us From God

28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.


This does not mean that everything that we do or experience works out to our good, but it does mean that all things that God has done work together for the good to them that love God, to them who have come to see things Gods way. All that God has created work together for that which is good, but necessarily from our point of view. It is from God's point of view that He has done this, and for all who have come to this understanding and experience, this is applicable.

Foreknew, Predestined, Called, Justified, Glorified,

Ephesian 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.


Since this portion of the Scripture is often used in the discussion of election, here I will place a few thoughts as to how I view this. Elect means chosen.

God has not ordained anyone for eternal destruction, but has chosen all in Christ Jesus.

KJV 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

This election is on God's part, it is in Jesus Christ, is based upon mercy, upon grace and it is through faith. If one believes, one is elect. If one does not believe, they are not elect.

Illustration: A door on which is written here in time, which is the invitaiton to partake of that which God has given the world, from Revelation 22:16

KJV Revelation 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
KJV Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

In eternity, the same door will have on it these words:
Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: {places: or, things}
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.


God has foreknown: It has always been His plan to bring together His restored people into the image of His Son, who was the firstborn of the sons into the adoption of sonship, those who he has called, he also justified them as well as glorified them. If He has done all this, what is left for us to do but praise Him!

If He has done all this, who could be against us? God restored all of this for us and all of creation exists to serve God and to serve man. Christianity never speaks ill of that which God has created, but it remains good and continues to be good. God has never changed His mind about that which He created and yet calls good.



III. Our Expected End Since God Is For Us, With Us and In Us.
This history of Redemption can be outlined with three short sentences and this outline seems to be in these last three sentences: God is for us, He is with us, and He is in Us. Consider in addition, these three references from Scripture:

He is for us.
1 Peter 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

He is with us.
Matthew 1:22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

He is in us.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

31 What shall we then say to these things? He is For Us. If God be for us, who can be against us?
32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.

34 Who is he that condemneth? He is With Us. It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.


35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
This quote is from: Psalm 44:22

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
What does it mean to be more than a victor? It means that someone else has fought and won the battle for us. We are saved by grace through faith and no other way.

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The emphatic answer that is given is that nothing shall be able to cause a separation between us and Christ. This whole thing is about the restoration of the creation by God, it has been done by God, He has put it in front of us, and therefore, Paul emphatically declares that which God has done, saying that nothing shall separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. This is demonstrated by that which God did in Christ Jesus.

God bought us back through His Son, He came into existence here on earth to show this reality, and after the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit was sent to indwell all those who come to the understanding that we are saved by grace through faith. This is what is real, but we still live in the "not yet", which means that we are awaiting a brighter and more glorious day. It is a day that when it dawns will be the brightest sunrise that one could ever hope to see, for there faith will be turned to sight, to the fullness of understanding of what it means to be loved, and we will not ever again seek to look for ways to find relationship on our terms. We yet are living in the "not yet".

I remember those words which were spoken by the late Georgo Saukkola' wife as she sat by his bedside as he was drifting from the "not yet" to his attainment for that which he had lived in hope: Eternal Glory. As she sat there, I asked her if she would like to join him in glory, and she said, "It is not yet time." She understood in part the 'not yet,", we understand in part the "not yet."

Both Apostle John and Apostle Paul wrote very clearly the concept of the "not yet", as is illustrated in their epistles. John wrote of the day in which we yet live, saying, "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is."1 John 3:1-2

Paul wrote: "For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." 1 Corinthians 13:9-12

As think on the contrast between what God says about us and our thoughts of ourselves, may the truth of this Word create faith in our hearts that will strongly lay hold on that which God says concerning us. May we be persuaded and assured this day that the promises of God are for us, the elect in Christ, so that we will continue to live in hope of the future glory in heaven. Above all, may we rest in complete confidence of the faithfulness of our Great God who has done all things good for our eternal benefit.

In the Oneness in Christ,

Awaiting the New Day
Introduction

Dear ones,

God's Peace to you all!


Last week and over the weekend, we had the privilege to spend time at the annual convention of the Apostolic Lutheran Church of America in Upper Michigan. It was a blessed time during which we were exposed to the hearing of the Word of God for a number of days, spent time in prayer with others, had opportunity to renew acquaintances as well as to make new friends, discussed various topics in meetings which relate to the ongoing as well as future operations of our ALCA, and all in all, came back from there thankful, encouraged, optimistic and inspired toward the future. Thankful to be a part of our ALCA, encouraged by the Word which pointed to the unity that we have in Jesus Christ, optimistic towards the future of the larger group of which we are a part of, and inspired to consider as to how I/we may continue to be a positive and fruitful part of the beloved heritage that we have been reared and nurtured in. This meditation gives us opportunity to reflect on that which the Lord has done for us, how He lives in us by His Spirit and how hope lifts us over the struggles and difficulties that are with us in this present world. Therefore by seeing ourselves through God's eyes, we live individual lives of faith, lives that are connected to Jesus Christ by this faith and which are connected together with one another by and in the Holy Spirit. Our meditation is from Romans 8:12-25.


Our Present Life in the Spirit

The word "therefore" causes us to look at the previous verses so that we will understand what has been said to this point in previous verses and thereby keep our meditation in context. As the Apostle struggles with the warfare that goes on in his life between the spirit (the new man, born/renewed of the Spirit) and the flesh (the old man, fallend, carnal nature), at the closing part of the 7th chapter, he cries out, "O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?" and he answers his question with "I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin." (7:25) He then goes onto say, "There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." (8:1-2)

The presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit indicates that we are free from the law of sin and death, and in fact, have been freed by that "law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus." We might say the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed us from the guilt and the power of sin, the law. The law accuses us and condemns us, for we cannot do that which it commands, but the life-giving Spirit ministers grace and truth to us through Jesus Christ, the Gospel. In Him we have grace and forgiveness, a revelation that comes from God through His Spirit through Jesus Christ.. In the next verses which lead up to our text, he contrasts the life in the Spirit and the life in the flesh, and pointing out very clearly this: "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his." (8:9)

"And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you." 8:10-11)

So, therefore, since we are indwelt by God Himself, by Christ Himself, by the Holy Spirit Himself, we do not owe anything to the flesh, for it is as Paul says in another place, "But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world".(Galatians 6:14) The world, our flesh, and the devil have lost their power over us, we do not owe them anything, and therefore, we do not give anyone our allegiance but Christ, our King.

Living after the flesh, i.e. living in an attitude of compromise and acceptance into our hearts and lives of that which is contrary to God's written and revealed will, living in our carnal nature will bring death, but if through the power of the life-giving Spirit we deaden the deeds of the body, we will live. That is what it says, period. This is a difficult passage to interpret and to understand in the light of the doctrine of justification by grace through faith. For one could easily draw the conclusion that one is justified through personal obedience. That is not the case, for this verse must be understood more from the context of result rather than a condition. What does this mean? "Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live." (8:12-13)

Since we have been freed from the law of sin and death (8:2) by the life-giving Spirit of Christ, we are no longer under the power of sin and death, for we "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. "(Galatians 2;20) As a result of Christ's work on the cross, (grace); through our acknowledgment of sin (repentance); and our believing of the Gospel (faith), we are indwelt by Christ's Spirit, the same Spirit by which He arose from the dead, and which now lives in us. (8:11) Therefore, as a result of God's grace toward us, we are no longer a slave to self, to sin, to the world, to the devil, but we are a slave to Christ, called to to His bidding and will. This is what is meant by result and not condition. We mortify our members because we are in the Spirit, but we do not mortify our members to get the Spirit. This brings us to the next thought of this meditation, that our being indwelt by the Spirit is evidenced inwardly/outwardly by four characteristics:


1) A life that is set apart from one who lives in the flesh
13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

2) Sonship
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

3) Living in the spirit of freedom and not of fear as adopted children
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

4) As children of God, we have an inheritance which is characterized by suffering
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.



Our Future Glory as God's Children

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth (like labor pains of childbirth) in pain together until now.

Suffering is the pathway to glory, and even as Jesus suffered for the glory of the Father, we also are called to suffer with Him through being united in Him and being identified with Him. We will suffer in this present world but he greatness of the glory that awaits us is so great that to compare the two is not possible, but rather our suffering in this life is to be contrasted with the glory that will be revealed in us in heaven.

Paul then uses the natural created order to to illustrate the concept of suffering and glory.
He addresses the past, the future and goes back to the present. He does this for a reason as we will see, but before that we must recognize and understand that the earth runs just like God wants it to run. He writes that the creation was made to be subject to vanity by God for his purposes, (The creation did not impose the curse on itself) so also God subjected the earth to hope of the new creation, the new heaven and the new earth. For the earth is now slave to rot, to decay, to falling down.

We see signs of the new created order in the growing season, in perennial plants, in trees, in corn crops, alfafa and in soybeans. They remind us that a better day is coming, when we will be living in total glory, and that forever and forever. The earth itself preaches this new day to us. In our verses, we are told that God caused the earth to be a dying planet, that this will not always be the case, for there is a new and brighter day coming!!! The earth groans for the Sons of God to be revealed, for that is its purpose, to serve as a means by which God brought forth into existence His plan of salvation through being born in the flesh, i.e. Christ in the flesh, God with us. The earth has no existence for itself, but serves its creator.

He now applies the lesser to the greater, from the natural to the spiritual, by pointing out five things that should encourage as we live the life in the Spirit in the here and now but awaiting "the bright and glorious day." Here are the verses:

23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan/sigh within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?
25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.


1) We have the First fruits of Spirit (first gleanings of the harvest, with the promise that more is to come, or, like an earnest money, a down payment on the house, which is a promise for the final purchase), which means that there is more to come, the greater realization and experience is to come!!

2) We groan inwardly, which reminds us of our incompleteness on this side of glory as we experience pain and uncertainty, as we sigh both in our pain and long for the relief in glory.

3) We wait for the final adoption, the ultimate adoption. Here everything is a foretaste, a teaser we might say, for the best is yet to come. "For our conversation/life is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself." Philippians 3:20-21

4) We live in hope, an expectant hope. We believe in and we trust in the promises of God. May we be reminded that we are not there yet, but God's promises are true and steadfast!

5) We live in patience for the fulfilment of our hope in Him. In the midst of our trials, our health issues, our family troubles, our worries and fears, we are to wait patiently for the timing of God in bringing all things to His glorious end, From first fruits to harvest, From bbondage to freedom, from decay to incorruption, from labor pains to birth, and from suffering to glory.

May we be in peace today, being reminded that we are not yet there, that God is totally in control of the world and its events, and He will bring all things to His end. We have the promise of the Spirit to keep us focused on the future, we have the natural creation around us to remind us that we are not there yet, (but yet in the midst of decay and rot, we see new life the spring) and we have His promise that there is a better day coming.

May the amazing grace of God be upon all this day through Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who took away the sin of the world.

Together in Christ,
