The revealed sons of God
All nature groans under curse of the Fall. Heaven and Earth is waiting for deliverance and renovation, according to the promise of God (2 Peter 3:13). All creation waits in eager expectation for the glory to be revealed (Romans 8:19). We ourselves, earnestly wait in confidence (Romans 8:23 -25). The Spirit also makes intercession for us (Romans 8:26,27). Just like the pain and expectancy of a woman giving birth, creation cries out expectantly.
The revelation of the sons of God
Creation looks forward to the revelation of the sons of God. The deliverance of all creation from the bondage of corruption will take place at the same time when the children of God will be revealed (Romans 8:23-25).
When Christ returns, the whole world shall truly see how loved and privileged these children really are. The riches in Christ are inexhaustible.
