The divine plan involves our complete rescue from sin – from its guilt, its power, and its presence. Our acceptance of Calvary brings the first; our dependence upon the living, interceding Christ brings the second; and Christ’s return accomplishes the last. The work is his, though received our faith. Objectively, Christ is all; subjectively, faith is all.
Therefore look back to the cross of our Messiah and Prince – that brings the faith that justifies; look forward to the Coming which will consummate the everlasting righteousness already legally achieved – that brings the hope that sanctifies; look upward to the throne where he ministers in the holy of holies, the anointed sanctuary, as our High Priest – that brings the love which satisfies.
This is the “everlasting gospel.” Good News indeed!
– Des Ford. Rom 8:27-32. Adapted from “Good News in Daniel’s Prophecy.”
