“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory”. Colossians 1:27
Christ in you is a confident expectation that your life will end in glory. “Hope” here means you are confidently expecting that no matter what, your story must end in glory. Job said, “… all the days of my appointed time, will I wait, till my change come.” In other words, it is a matter of time, my change is coming. Satan, you are wasting your time, my story will never end in shame. And because he waited, God gave him double for all his trouble.
In the book of Isaiah 61:5-7, the Bible tells us: “And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your ploughmen and your vinedressers. But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory, shall ye boast yourselves.
For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion, they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore, in their land, they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them”. That is our heritage!
From today, I declare double in your life. In every area, I declare double in your life. You will not be stranded. Your children will not bring disgrace to you. Your hands will not bury your own children. Wherever your children are located, I cover them in the blood; I speak protection and security over their lives. They will excel in life. We shall hear of their exploits on CNN. We shall hear of their exploits on Sky News and on BBC. Whatever is dead in your life is coming alive. From this moment forward no more shortage in your life. You will not see reproach. You will not see shame. You will not see disappointment. The devil will not determine your future. Nothing will cut short your life. You will not die prematurely.
What God has spoken concerning you will be accomplished. Christ in you is the hope of glory. There is a confident expectation that your story will end in glory. Your story will not end in shame.
