Glorification & Restoration

In like manner the Christian's hope is not indifferent to the material universe around us, the cosmos of God's creation. It was subjected to vanity not willingly; it was cursed for man's sin; it was marred by human apostasy. But it is going to be delivered from the bondage of corruption, and its deliverance will be coincident with the consummation of God's people's redemption. The two are not only coincident as events but they are correlative in hope. Glorification has cosmic proportions. 'We according to his promise look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness' (2 Pet. 3:13). 'Then the end, when he delivers over the kingdom to God and the Father' and 'God will be all in all' (1 Cor. 15:24, 28).
