    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:4

    Cuando se manifestare el Cristo, nuestra vida, entonces vosotros tambin seris manifestados con l en gloria.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Colossians 3:4

    Verse 4. When
    Christ, who is our life] When Christ comes to judge the world, ye shall appear with him in his glory, and in an eternal state of blessedness.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. When
    Christ, who is our life, shall appear , etc.] The Vulgate Latin version, and some copies, read, your life. Christ is the author of spiritual life, the fountain from whence it springs, the object on which the saints live, yea, their very life itself; it is not so much they that live, as Christ that lives in them: and he is their eternal life; it is in him, and given forth by him; to know him now is the beginning of it; and its perfection hereafter will lie in the vision of him, communion with him, and conformity to him. The Jews have a saying f48 , that lives depend upon the son of Jesse, all sorts of life, natural, spiritual, and eternal. At present, Christ, the life of his people, is, as it were, hid; when he had done the work he came into this world about, and which he was manifest in the flesh, he departed out of it, ascended up into heaven, and went to his God and Father, where he is, and will be retained, until the time of the restitution of all things; and though he appears in the presence of God, and on the behalf of his redeemed ones, yet he is now out of sight, and not to be seen with their bodily eyes; but, ere long, he will be revealed from heaven, and come in the clouds of it, and be seen by all, to the terror and confusion of some, and to the joy and salvation of others; when his appearance will be exceeding glorious, not only in his glorified body, or exalted human nature, and as the Judge of the whole earth, clothed with majesty, authority, and power, but as the Son of God, God equal with the Father, in all the perfections and glory of deity, which will be manifest and apparent to everyone: then shall ye also appear with him in glory : the dead bodies of the saints will then be raised and united to their souls, which he will bring with him, when he appears; and living saints shall be changed, and be caught up together with the raised ones, into the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so they all shall be with him together, wherever he is, whether in the air, or on earth, or in heaven, and while he is in either; and shall be for ever with him, enjoy communion with him, be made like unto him, and behold his glory: yea, they shall appear in glory too; with a glory on their bodies, which will be raised in glory like unto the glorious body of Christ; and on their souls, being in perfect holiness, having on the wedding garment, or robe of Christ's righteousness, being clothed upon with their house from heaven, and appearing in the shining robes of immortality, incorruption, and glory; having the glory of God upon them in soul and body, and such a glory revealed in them, as the sufferings of this present life, and all the enjoyments of it, are not to be compared with. All which furnish out strong arguments and reasons, enforcing the above exhortations to seek for, and set the affections on things in heaven, and not on earth.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-4 - As
    Christians are freed from the ceremonial law, they must walk the more closely with God in gospel obedience. As heaven and earth ar contrary one to the other, both cannot be followed together; an affection to the one will weaken and abate affection to the other Those that are born again are dead to sin, because its dominion i broken, its power gradually subdued by the operation of grace, and it shall at length be extinguished by the perfection of glory. To be dead then, means this, that those who have the Holy Spirit, mortifyin within them the lusts of the flesh, are able to despise earthly things and to desire those that are heavenly. Christ is, at present, one who we have not seen; but our comfort is, that our life is safe with him The streams of this living water flow into the soul by the influence of the Holy Spirit, through faith. Christ lives in the believer by his Spirit, and the believer lives to him in all he does. At the secon coming of Christ, there will be a general assembling of all the redeemed; and those whose life is now hid with Christ, shall the appear with him in his glory. Do we look for such happiness, and shoul we not set our affections upon that world, and live above this?

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    4. Who is our
    life (zwh). See on John i. 4. The life is not only with Christ, it is Christ. Compare John xiv. 6; 2 Cor. iv. 10, 11; 1 John v. 11, 12. For the change of person, our for your, see on ch. ii. 13.

    Shall appear (fanerwqh). Rev., correctly, shall be manifested. Compare 1 John iii. 2, note. See on Rom. iii. 21.

    In glory. Compare Rom. viii. 17.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:4 {When Christ shall be manifested} (hotan ho cristos fanerwqei). Indefinite temporal clause with hotan and the first aorist passive subjunctive of fanerow, "whenever Christ is manifested," a reference to the second coming of Christ as looked for and longed for, but wholly uncertain as to time. See this same verb used of the second coming in #1Jo 3:2. {Ye also together with him} (kai humeis sun autwi). That is the joy of this blessed hope. He repeats the verb about us fanerwqesesqe (future passive indicative) and adds en doxei (in glory). Not to respond to this high appeal is to be like Bunyan's man with the muck-rake.
