Gathering in Christ
1 Corinthians 15:28
Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.
Redemption does not only mean personal salvation and the redemption of our body; it means the absolute and complete redemption of the whole material earth in every iota, and not only the earth, but the whole material universe… It means that all relegated authority shall pass, and God will be the absolute authority… There is a time coming, thank God, when everything shall be under the direct rule of God in every detail. We look for a new heaven and a new earth, and then will the human race stand before God as Jesus Christ stood before Him when He was here. Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of Man, is not a mere individual; He is the One who represents the whole human race…
