RESURRECTION OF THE SONS OF GOD
Ps. 82:6 “I said, `You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’
Ps. 82:7 But you will die like mere men; you will fall like every other ruler.”
Up till now, sons of God have been dying like mere human beings. The time has come
for the sons of God to no longer fall into death, but rather grow in divine life
(resurrection) and rise up into the heavens.
Is. 60:1 Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.
Is. 60:2 See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD
rises upon you and his glory appears over you.
Is. 60:1 talks about the resurrection of the sons of God. How will this come about?
Ez. 36:25 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all
your impurities and from all your idols.
Ez. 36:26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your
heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.
Ez. 36:27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to
keep my laws.
In Ez. 36:25-27, I can see three activities that must precede the resurrection of the
sons of God: cleansing from all impurities, cleansing from all idols and getting a new
heart.
Cleansing from all impurities
Ep. 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
Ep. 5:26 to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word,
Ep. 5:27 and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other
blemish, but holy and blameless.
The number one requirement for the resurrection of the sons of God is that they must
be cleansed from all impurities (sins). This cleansing is done by washing with living
water (Holy Spirit of God) through the word. A lot of people make the mistake of
thinking that the word is the water that cleanses. The Holy Spirit is the water. The word
serves as the mirror that enables a son of God to know whether he needs cleansing and
the kind of uncleanness he has.
Ja. 1:23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at
his face in a mirror
Ja. 1:24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.
