“That the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
at the revelation of Jesus Christ
The word “revelation” means unveiling. This refers to the return of the Lord Jesus.
1 Peter 5:4 says “And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.”
1 John 2:28: “And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.”
1 John 3:2-3: “Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”
The Lord will appear to Christians first then to the unbelieving world later.
God will manifest the eternal value of the life of faith when Jesus returns
Do you anticipate Jesus’ return? He may come today.
The three results of the glorification of the believer (praise, honor, and glory) will take place at the coming of Christ. God honors those who prove their faith.
