Christ in you
, the hope of glory.

The New Testament revelation is
Christ in you
. This was
Paul’s revelation and it is the revelation
God desires the Church to get. This is the revelation of the New Testament church. Verse 27 saysthat this revelation was hidden from the Old Testament saints but God has willed to reveal it to usthe New Testament saints which is;
Christ in you the hope of glory.
The coming of the Messiahwas predicted in the Old Testament, but the idea that He would actually indwell us was beyondanyone's imagination. However, the New Testament is clear that Christ, by the Holy Spirit takes uppermanent residence in all believers (Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor. 6:19, 20; Eph. 2:22).This is a wonderful truth which some fail to fully appreciate. Solomon said at the dedication of thetemple, "But will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot
contain You. How much less this temple which I have built!" We could say; “how much less thisphysical body?” 1King 8:27 This is truly amazing! This is the truth that made Paul very outstanding!
Paul based his ministry on
this revelation. Hear his declarations; “We are more than conquerors
through Him-Jesus-who loved us, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, in Him I live
move and have my being.”
Paul had gotten the revelation. If we could only meditate upon this truth and continually ponder on it;our lives will automatically change for the better. If you catch the revelation, how could you possibly
fail with Christ in you?! Why can’t you? Because your failure would mean that Christ fails first then
you too! If we can only catch the revelation; that would mark the end of our fears, stress,discouragement and disappointments. He is in you and for you. How could we be helpless again?How could we be discouraged when He has said that He will never leave us nor forsake us? (Heb13:5)
