With the enemies of Israel crushed and the nation spiritually reborn, the glory of God returns. The temple is rebuilt, and God's anointed Ruler is worshiped as King over all the earth. The holy city is named Jehovah-Shammah, ''The Lord is there'' (). The Glory of Christ In the The Glory of Christ abridged and made easy to read, we have the great Puritan pastor and theologian John Owen at his richest and most mature. Here he writes about Jesus Christ, the heart of the gospel, with biblical insight and understanding that is at times almost overwhelming for a contemporary by: 5. Christ, the 'Glory of Israel' A Chapter from The Mystery of Christmas by Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa. The words of the Nunc Dimittis, as well as throwing light on the present problem of the relationship between the Church and non-Christian religions, also throws light on the problem of the relationship between the Church and the people of Israel, between . The great antichrist is Lucifer, but he has many assistants, both spirit beings and mortals. The son of perdition opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, 2 Thes. – He deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of miracles, Rev. – Sherem denied Christ and deceived many, Jacob –
That hope for a new Israel—a true Israel that would embody all that God called Israel to be—persisted across the centuries into the New Testament era. This hope was finally fulfilled in the incarnation of God’s true Son by nature, Jesus Christ. Matthew tells us that Jesus fulfills Hosea 11 (Matt. –15). That is to be justified in Christ and to be sanctified and to receive those blessings of the gospel in purity with the ceiling powers and then the full rights of Israel can be unfolded. For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. The land of Canaan is also called Israel today. And in another sense Israel means the true believer in Christ, as explained by Paul (Rom. ; ; Gal. ; Eph. ). The name Israel is therefore variously used to denote (1) the man Jacob, (2) the literal descendants of Jacob, and (3) the true believers in Christ, regardless of their.
in Ephesians: Jesus is The Christ of Riches, the Head of All Things and the Conerstone. in Philippians: Jesus is The God Who Meets Our Every Need, the Name above all names. in Colossians: Jesus is The Fullness of The Godhead, the Image of the Invisible God, the Head of the body, the Beginning, the Firstborn of the dead and the Hope of Glory. "The Stage Is Set: Israel, the End Times, and Christ's Ultimate Victory" by Bryant Wright is a very good book to read if you are interested in learning about what is to come. It is written very well and covers a many (not all) major events in the book of Revelation as well as covering Old Testament prophets where it pertains to the end times/5. Christ in you, the hope of glory! (27) To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. So Paul uses the same words back at these Gnostics and speaks of the ‘glorious riches of this mystery ’ which ‘God has chosen to make known.’. Summary. In The Glory of Christ, R.C. Sproul provides an inspiring look at those moments when Jesus’ life of humiliation gave way to the splendor of His deity. This book takes you up to the mountain, down by the river, and along the Damascus Road to behold the glory of Christ and to worship at His feet.
