A TITLE THAT CAN NEVER BE CLOUDED
By virtue of the fact that we are identified with Christ, we as believers share in a judgment with Him that can never be repeated. Thus we shall face Him as the Living Redeemer in the air-not as the awesome Judge before the Great White Throne.
Inherent in the Finished Work of Christ, the child of God has been given a Title Deed that rests with our Advocate at the Right Hand of God. He who "spoiled principalities and powers by the cross and the impact of His ascension, "IS ABLE," exclaims Paul, "TO KEEP THAT WHICH I HAVE COMMITTED UNTO HIM AGAINST THAT DAY."
Paul's unparalleled song of jubilation emerges from the dirty and dark prison dungeon in Rome. Ironically he held a temporary prisoner's title to the miserable abode. However, from his redeemed being springs an outburst of assurance, standing like a bulwark of conviction in materialistic and paganistic Rome.
In authoring the "Swan Song," Paul did not flippantly quote a verse out of context. Alas, for we sense the heartbeat of a lonely and suffering Apostle since the church had rebelled against Paul's unique message for this Age of Grace (II Timothy 1:15). Thus, his eyes of faith were focused far above the faltering church-upon the Person of Christ.
The "perilous times" seemed to fester even then with departure from the Pauline message, plaguing the church ever since with wreck and ruin. God's Word gives the lie to the self-righteousness and superstition so manifest today. Yes, our life is "HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD," and "YE ARE SEALED UNTO THE DAY OF REDEMPTION."
