Waiting For the Unveiling of The Sons of God

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. Romans 8:19

“For the earnest expectation of the creation is waiting for the revealing of the sons of God” KJV translated the word “creature” as creation in verse 22 and more apply fits the context. As the whole of creation waits, not just the creatures. We know the earth is still under the curse and the dominion of sin.

Most commentators say the earth is waiting for the second coming of Jesus. That is when God shall restore all of creation. Yet this verse does not say the creation is waiting for Jesus, but the sons of God.

Out of the Latter Rain Movement came the Manifest Sons of God teaching. It got off track on its teaching based on this scripture. As we will see in the next few verses a more detailed meaning. I don’t want to get into that in this blog. However, I think there is more to this than just the second coming of Jesus.

In fact, the whole of creation is earnestly expecting the unveiling of the sons of God. The word manifestation is the Greek word “apokalypsis” or we would say the apocalypse. This is the unveiling. It’s as if the Sons of God are as a statue covered up ready to be unveiled.

Jesus redeemed us from the curse. (Galatians 3:14) He has taken dominion back away from Satan. Even though the totality of creation will not be restored until later, I think the Sons of God—the believers—are to take a more active role in the earth. We need to do the works of God. Jesus said we would do greater works than He did. I believe that as we put the Word of God before everything else, that we would begin to see more of the glory and power of God. We need to release His grace on the earth. We need to take the veil off and become the true sons and daughters of God going about doing good and bringing healing to all people.
