HH: The way that I have understood this verse is that involves waiting for
the blessed hope of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, and
for the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. We
are waiting for both. One will be a personal transformation for us when we
receive the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. The time that
this will happen is the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior
Jesus Christ at His Second Advent.
