Romans 8:19 For the anxious watching of the creation eagerly awaits the revelation of the sons of God. (Recovery Version Bible)

The eternal purpose of God in His intention according to His heart’s desire is to have many sons; God desires to have many sons to be His expression in a corporate way. Romans 8:19 tells us that the whole creation is waiting for the revelation and the glorification of the sons of God, and Hebrews 2:10 says that Christ is leading many sons into glory; Christ is doing one thing today: He is bringing us into glory. At present the creation is enslaved under the law of decay and corruption; its only hope is to be freed from the slavery of corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God when the sons of God are revealed, manifested. (2014 Fall ITERO, msg. 1 outline)

If you would ask me what God is doing today, I would say that He is doing one thing: He is bringing us into glory. We may compare this to the preparation of a feast. If we come to a brother’s home for a big feast, we may ask, “Where is he?” Then someone will say, “He is in the kitchen cooking.” Today God is “in the kitchen cooking” to bring His many sons into glory. Romans 8:18 speaks of the sufferings of this present time and the coming glory. It is through these sufferings that God is “cooking” us. …Today is the time of cooking. The fullness of the times has not yet come. When the fullness of the times comes, all things will be in order. For now, though, God is “cooking” the church, including you and me. Then at the fullness of the times, we all will be brought into glory. At that time the whole creation will be released, delivered, from the slavery of corruption and from vanity, and all creation will be headed up in Christ with His Body. (The Vision, Practice, and Building Up of the Church as the Body of Christ, ch. 2, by Witness Lee)
