What Will Be Revealed About You At The Revelation Of Jesus Christ? – from 1 Peter 1:7

013

 

1 Peter 1:7.

That the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

 

Here is the most wonderful message of hope for the recipients of this letter: that all the trials they were enduring were serving to test the genuineness of their faith. And it was Peter’s prayer that their lives, ultimately, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

This prayer will generally be answered for all true believers, for when He is revealed to us at His coming (in the rapture), we will see Him as He is (glorified); then our completed salvation in Christ will be revealed to us and to all (1 Pt. 1:5).

However, there will be degrees of praise and glory and honor given to each one according to each ones works. Paul talks about this in 1 Corinthians 3:12-15:

 

Now if any man builds upon the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it, because it is to be revealed with fire; and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work. 14 If any man’s work which he has built upon it remains, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man’s work is burned up, he shall suffer loss; but he himself shall be saved, yet so as through fire.

 

So it seems that we are tested twice. We are tested while on this earth, through trials, to test the genuineness of our faith—and those trials in our testing will also be used to strengthen our faith. And then we will also be tested at the Bema Seat judgement immediately after the rapture. This testing will be to see what kind of a Christian we are; that is, to see how we lived our Christian life on earth. Ultimately, it will be revealed how we responded to trials. Will it be fond that we trusted God in trails to allow them to strengthen our faith, or will it be found that we buckled in trials and gave in to sin and what the devil wanted to do with us?

All these things will be revealed at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Oh, let it be found that your faith will be praiseworthy, glorious and honoring to God.
