True reconciliation. To the beginning

Download PDF
    The religious bludgeoning of the body does not please God. Look at the prophets in the day of Elijah. The repetitious prayers are proof of unbelief or they would not repeat themselves. “Do not pray like the heathen for they think they will be heard by their many words” But “we speak and believe” and then we receive.
     It was said of Christ ‘I have come for you to have life abundantly “? And He did come. And we do have life. “He who has the Son has life”. Eternal life already.
   In the beginning it was not the body that was responsible for displeasing God but the mind that disbelieved and broke faith. This is why we are called to “be ye transformed (transfigured) by the renewing of your mind” and not the body. The body returns to the dust as stated in the beginning.
    It is in the reasoning of the mind behind the choices that compels the body.That was the place where Adam fell.  There is nothing recorded about him bruising his knees when he fell. He fell in understanding. The mind was in error, not the body. The body can do nothing apart from the spirit, for “the body without the spirit is dead” being instructed by the mind.
     So as we are to be renewed in thinking, being that our mind is re scripted and reformatted by Gods word. That we are restored to “that which is from the beginning”. To what Adam had before he fell. The flesh does not have to be removed but the filth of carnal thinking does. This is how we learn to think like God for “we have the mind of Christ”.
  Collossians 2.  In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins[c] of the flesh, (but not the flesh itself, just the sins) by the circumcision of Christ,12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith  in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him”.  And this is all done outside of the human perceptions of sight and hearing in the realm of faith. “To those who have ears to hear and eyes to see” of a different nature.
   God made man from the dust of the earth.  He set him “over the works of His hands” and told him to “go forth and have dominion”. And this was while he was in the body formed of dust of which God had said “it is good, very good”. This is the objective of salvation and the redemption and restoration in the mind and not the body. But the body can be the lucky recipient of a renewed mind for “as He is, so are we in this world” and “we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the glory and the excellency may be of God and not ourselves”.
   Mankind was made of clay like Adam to reflect the glory of God while in a body in this way but “all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. And the purpose of the Gospel is to be restored to the glory while we are in our humanity saying “we are transformed into His (Christ’s) same image from glory to glory as by the spirit of God ” in this age of time and matter, to have dominion. (2 Cor 3.18) To rule and reign. And we do this “in Christ”. Does not scripture say that we are seated in the heavenlies in Christ”? And “of His fullness we have received”? This is what the spirit of satan blinds people to and delays them from. And they call it a second coming. To be transformed by a future event of a physicality and not the spirit. (Read 2 Corinthians  3 and 4) The second coming mindset is the veil that blinds you and keeps you from your transformation. They just redefine Gods Kingdom to the view the Jews had. The one they were condemned for. A gospel of a future coming king and kingdom saying. “When does the kingdom of God appear?” Christ answered them “It cometh not with observation”. This is what the 2nd coming seekers reject and say it does. What did Christ then tell His followers? “They will say look here and look there. DO NOT GO AFTER THEM!
   It is an end times saving that Paul misunderstood in his first letters that competes with the message of “that which is from the beginning” spoken by John the beloved who also said ” what is it that overcomes the world? Our faith!”  Paul later learned by revelation and displayed more clearly in the books of Ephesians and Collossians. John said “we are in the end times, but some still say it’s later. And they call it “a 7 year tribulation. John said “They came out from among us? And they did. The 2nd coming gospel use the same scriptures in a different way. A way that denies the savior of the cross and ascribes a saving to happen later. Woe

  The truth is the saving and redemption is to what  Adam lost. A co-conscientiousness with God the Father. As Christ prayed “Father that they may be one with us”.  This is the reconciliation of the cross Paul saying “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us this word of reconciliation. (not a future reconciling)20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. (this is what Adam lost and passed onto all humanity21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (Adams loss restored, Adams fallen lifted back up, raised and resurrected). This is not a gift delegated to a 2nd coming savior but the cross as having happened. The reconciliation of the world described in these verses are a new world view that the created world responds differently to.

 

Adam departed from his God given role and took on the contrast. The creation that he was to “have dominion over” now had dominion over him saying “of the sweat of your face you shall work the earth and thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you”. God did not curse the earth or Adams flesh. Adam started thinking backwards relying on his lower nature and its senses. So implemented the opposite of faith being shame, fear and self preservation as the carnal senses informed him. Proof of this is he did work with his hands in the Garden as evident by the fig leaf where he covered himself in a shameful way. Until then God was his covering and to that we are restored by means of the gospel. Like when God visited Abraham God  said to Him “I am your shield and your exceedingly great reward”. That about covers it. What more could you want?  You see all Gods works are word.

      But Adam left his God given role and received the opposite.  Instead of having dominion? He now was dominated by the very thing he was to rule. The “work of His hands” was because a spiritual polarity shift took place. His lower level took center stage and became responsible to cover and provide for himself. He stood alone. He lost the Holy spirit and the ability to do the work of the Father. WORD.  He was thinking backwards. His mind was now darkened and opened up a void in himself of darkness. This is the place where the spirit of God was. Which is now the place of a darkened heart to those who are disobedient. Adam was providing for himself as evident by the fig leaf and rejected Gods provisions. From this he needs to be redeemed, restored and renewed. He needs to be saved from this .

   And this is what the gospel does to those who hear Gods word and believe it. We are re clothed. We are covered and refitted to glorify God by doing what God does, which is to speak a thing to be. “For greater works shall you do because I go to the Father” were the words of Christ”. In this way “we are a kind of first fruits of His creation. We are His kind and not fish, fowl or animal. This is what it means to “put on Christ.  And this is mandated now and not at a 2nd coming. We become saints, holy and glorious like “the Father of Glories”. We become “the perfect man is able to bridle his mouth”.

   The second coming mindset is nothing but a series of formulas and carnal computations applying Gods word in a way to appease the carnal senses that in effect makes God weak and unavailable as they wait for another carnal event. We are instruction to “cast down arguments and every thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. And that is what they do. They obscure the truth to unsuspecting souls. But we destroy their lies. And it is in this way that we over come Satan, sin, death and the 2nd coming gospel.
Also when we are instructed to enter His rest? His rest is from working. We are invited to stop working the curse. To retire from that. When Gods word became flesh He said “come unto me all ye that are laden with burdens and I will give you rest. This has full meaning being associated with working the earth in sweat yielding thorns to be reversed and enter Gods rest and reliance on Him. This can only be done when you do what Adam ceased to do. The works that you cover yourself with is then replaced by Christ. As it says “He is the propitiation for the whole world” not just your personal short comings. You must believe again. He distrusted and followed another. He was left alone to provide for himself. He did not trust and believe in God. To trust in God and His perfect provisions saying “from every tree you may freely eat” It is as if God said everything is freely yours to use at your discretion, and now through the gospel “of His fullness we have received”.
      Allow Him to cloth you and discard the fig leave. Lay aside all the guilt, shame and fear and believe. Does not scripture say that “God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we could think or ask according to the power that works in us “? Is He in you?
     When Adam fell he awakened lust and he left the provisions of God. It was put in play for man to be subdued in that way. Lust being a carnal appetite that is never satisfied. But in Christ we are “filled to the full”. As He said “whoever believes in me shall never thirst”
    “We have been delivered from the corruption that is in the world through lusts” and because of this “we are partakers of the divine nature”. And the exchange and polarity reversal takes place by receiving the holy spirit. Did you receive that?
   So if we can learn to appropriately apply the gospel to our thinking and be re-scripted in our mind to receive the saving of the cross, we need not look for another saving. A 2nd coming saving. A savior. A 2nd coming savior. Respond to the “Lo I am with you always” and “Behold, I stand at the door and knock”. Be restored to this world view. Be renewed to this.
1 John 2,24 If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
You see it is from the beginning. It is not an end time thing at all.
    The Kingdom of God is at hand!

Stir up by remembrance

     I know you know these things but it’s good to keep it fresh. Even as Peter said “to stir up your mind by way of remembrance” Saying of God by the gospel.

 

Col 1.13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the Kingdom of His Son.
2 Pet 1.3 His divine power has given us everything that pertains to life and godliness.

This is a done deal and this is before a 2nd coming.

 

2 Pet 1.4 We are partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption of the world.

Now in this day and age.

 

These are all past tense fulfilled in Christ to be put on by the working of faith, which is our duty to God. Our faith which is our invisible umbilical cord to the invisible God. For “without faith it is impossible to please God,  you much first believe that He is and He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him”. And this He does as we seek, not as we wait to die or be raptured, saying “seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and these things will be added to you”.. And since we have these things, our spirit is already where our body wants to go, but our body will never go there. However the redeemed can experience the benefits and pleasures and because the redeption is complete “we are a new creation in Christ” as all things have been

And this includes earth. Yes earth is restored to the beginning being good, very good.  The

 

“He has (already) qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance”? So we don’t need another day. We shouldn’t rely on a 2nd coming but faith. “From faith to faith”  A 2nd coming would be factual. Christ said His kingdom is “not of this age” so we should expect something superior to time and matter.  And His Word is

 

Our man is a digit, A singularity, a human, defined as a person in place and time. This is our old nature. It was Christ who became a man like us for us to become like Him saying “in the beginning was word” and “the word became flesh and dwelled among us” and “to as many as recieved Him? To them He gave power to become His people” not of a future hope but because the New Covenant is now in effect.  “We knew Him once as a man, a digit, a singularity, but henceforth know we Him like that no more. (2 Cor 5.17) He is no longer a singularity and if anyone is “in Christ” they are no longer a singularity constricted to their old humanity, but are a “new creation” in His image, being ubiquitous. Not being restricted to this creation of time and space. God is spirit and He seeks those to worship Him in spirit and truth which precedes and supercedes time and matter.

The very reason that the Word became flesh and dwelled among us was to proof that godliness or God-like-ness is a reality while we sojourn here. We too

 

So being “in Christ”, “in the Spirit”, we have been quickened, we have been translated, we have been Raptured, we are where flesh and blood cannot go. This is why we “know no man, who is a believer, after the flesh” being a digit, a human. “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels for the excellence and the Glory is of God and not our digit. And since we are “in Christ”, “in the Spirit”, we too are partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light right now. Col 1.12

 

Our carnal desire is to be with a carnal Christ  but this can never be. Flesh and blood does not, and cannot inherit the Kingdom. And this body does not go there it returns to dust. It is not for the physical eye or the physical ear. “For seeing with their eyes they see not and hearing with their ears they hear not.  For it is with the heart one must see and hear to understand the things of God “. It is the new man made in His image that rules over the flesh. So the flesh can enjoy it saying “For He has given us richly all things to enjoy “.

 

So if we were Raptured, or taken away from this world in our current phase of transformation, we would freeze in our current condition as scripture says “when time is no more” ? “Let him who is unjust be unjust still he who is filthy let him be filthy still, he who is righteous let him be righteous still, he who is holy let him be holy still” Rev 22.11.

God would have to re-create the same current earthly conditions to finish His work in us. That is why we are here. As He said of this creation that “it is good, very good”. Earth is perfectly qualified to confine the fallen and teach renewal to the redeemed.

 

This is why eschatology and end times fascinations can be so dangerous. By being an escape from the greater work God wants to do in us now as we are instructed to “put on Christ’ in the here and now, and from Colossians 3 “since you are risen with Christ (not if) seek the things that are above. And verse 10 ” put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him”? But some wait to be raptured?

 

Eschatology focuses on and speaks of another day and derails the work of the Holy Spirit now who says Today! If you hear His voice. For “since there remains a rest for the people of God?” “see that you do not refuse Him who calls us from heaven”. And “why seek ye another? ” And “behold it is I! I kill and I bring to life Deu 32.39-40

 

If anything is unfruitful, it is a teaching to the body of Christ that morphs with every new fear, to keep people spiritually paralyzed and focused on the future and not real growth. Who does that sound like? Who steals, kills and destroys? Who detains and distracts? I mean Nibiru? Blood moons? What will they think of next? These are carnal fascinations with no connection to the invisible immortal eternal God.

 

So why do we need a rapture? To be saved? To be delivered from this evil world? To be quickened? To be translated? This has already happened if you neleive the scriptures, if you are “in Christ” who said “Father I pray not that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one”?.. And He did if  you can receive it,. You are already in His will, why would you want to go somewhere else?

 

What shall separate us from the love of God “in Christ”? Height? Depth? Government powers? Demonic principalities? A sword? A famine? Martial law? Through all these we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

As Joshua and Caleb said of the promises f God ” if God has given us the land (invisible promises) we are well able to possess them!” These two men “were of a wholly different spirit” than the fear mongers of that day, and so are we.

 

As in Daniel there were 3 men threatened with fire, and their reply? God is able to deliver us from the fire, but even if He doesn’t I will not worship your image. It was in the fire where the forth man was seen. We know who He was. It is in the fire we learn to partake of heavenly pleasures scripture saying “think it not strange concerning the fire which is to try you as though it’s strange.  For as you partake in the fire, is for you to experience Gods glory. And we do in greater degree after the trial and need not wait for a 2nd coming Jesus.

So fear not these end time images they present to you for they will fail as do all prophecies (1 Corinthians 13.8 ). And they will present another and they will fail too.  Do not fear little flock. We are where we need to be. “In Him”.

Jacob’s Ladder 3 The Gospel by degree


Jacob’s Ladder part 3. The Gospel by degree. “To the degree that ye have attained so walk ye in it”

It was Paul who said that Christ was made poor for us to become rich. He bore our spiritual poverty . And Paul also said of himself “so that we would become rich”. You see God the Father did not leave us poor and destitute. We have an inheritance and not like the inheritance of a piece of paper called “A will and testament” with a signature of a deceased.  Our inheritance is the impression of God in the face of Jesus Christ on our souls. But of this inheritance there is only one access. And that is by faith as we see the immensity of the promises of God given to us that “we are partakers of the divine nature” as promised by the gospel. It is in this way we realize our inheritance in the here and now and need not wait for another for if God has given us EVERYTHING THAT PERTAINS TO LIFE AND GOD-LIKE-NESS and that WE ARE PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE now, what does a 2nd coming Jesus give us that we don’t already have? It was “by His stripes we are healed” said Isaiah. Meaning the cross. He healed the effects of the fall in Eden for us to be restored to that which is from the beginning being like Adam in Eden in fellowship with God.
    That relationship is restored even as Paul said “I plead with you by the mercies of God be ye reconciled! ” And this all takes place at a one time public offering of the cross “each one in their own order ” and not at an encore presentation called the 2nd coming. That is a faithless gospel that expects to appease the carnal senses at a spectacular event expressed in time and matter,  a consistency God is not.
     Here again is another error by the second coming gospel purveyors. They suppose to be stricken until they physically see a redemption from Earth. They believe they are in limbo in need of the 2nd coming. It is that their foolish mind that is darkened by denying the “glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ”. They are blinded by the god of this age that provides another message of another Savior of time and matter to do something for you as if the work already finished in Christ by the cross is insufficient. And this insults the spirit of grace.
   But “my Lord delayeth not his coming” as supposed by the wicked servant. And from Hebrews 10? for the just shall live by faith and if any man draw back my soul has no pleasure in him saith the Lord for the Lord. Not meaning he waits not to come but he comes even now but it is the Second Coming seekers who cannot seek or see this 4 they are looking with the wrong set of eyes having eyes to see and ears to hear they see nor hear not the things of God for those with the heart that one sees and understands things of God
And it is because the Second Coming purveyors think that a perfect man has only to do with being perfected that are rapture they cannot have this they are robbed of the reward they are kept from the gift of God who has redeemed us to the cross of the blood and if redemption means anything other than restoration and reconciliation it has no meaning at all
Think about it if a person is drowning just because somebody grabs a hold of them to bring them to shore and holds their head above water you cannot say they are saved they are being saved salvation is incomplete and it is in this way the second coming forebears suppose salvation to mean something other than being saved they are at a midway point waiting for another Jesus to come stop them from drowning in the things of this age when if they knew the works of God and the power of God through word, they would appropriate the promise that Jesus said “father I do not take them out of the world but I pray that you keep them from evil”. Then having this promise tried and receiving the gift that is given. This is how the Word of God is alive. That the promises are appropriated. And as Peter says we are partakers of the divine nature having xscape the corruption that is in the world? So we do. This is done by faith and not a second coming man called Jesus. Amen?
Paul the Apostle was counted among those who were most antagonistic towards God before his conversion. He was met on the road to Damascus by a shining light and his journey began.  it was Paul who was selected by the Christ to lay out the path from that antagonistic belief system to the living God when it was said “who are you Lord? To which Christ replied “Why kick ye against the goads? He was to be a foundation stone of the Kingdom.
    So it was Paul who grew by degree in Revelation from the antagonistic Jewish culture that was left “not one stone upon another” that Christ used to make a bridge from the Satanic religion that rejected Christ to believe in the living God.
Before Paul’s conversion he was found as one who murdered the followers of Christ. He was chief among  sinners and became a prototype for his peers. And of his peers it was said that they were a “brood of vipers”. And of his contemporaries it was said “you travel land and sea to make convert and when doing so you make them twice the sons of Hell as yourself”. You see when Christ chided with the Pharisees he told them “you are the sons of your father the devil” who was a liar from the beginning. And when Christ chided with them? They gnashed at Him with their teeth. Wasn’t this a symptom of those who are cast into outer darkness? And that is where they were. They were sons of outer darkness being darkened in their conscience, in their mind, rational and spirit and drawing men to themselves.
 This is where we start today for this is where Paul started.  So it should not be surprising to see in Paul’s epistles a transition from that unholy religion to faith in the living God. So do not be surprised to see a mix in concepts or to see Paul’s later letters not coinciding with his earlier letters. Because of this it is impossible to read all scripture together as harmonious on an equal plane as demonstrated from Jacob’s Ladder part 1 & 2. It is this one reason that there are so many Christian religions and denominations today. We should see scripture as hills and mountains to climb and not a level valley to hurl darts at each other. “Come, let us rise from here”.
So Paul’s mind had to be washed from his earlier concept of death and resurrection and the recreation.

Resurrection Defined

1/02/16
Resurrection is commonly taught  as taking place at the end of the carnal life, at the death of the human body. That heaven and the Kingdom of God or an eternal bliss is later.
   To understand scriptural resurrection we must first understand what the fall is because resurrection is essentially  a reversal of the fall of Adam and Eve. “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. To this they must be lifted from the fall to be raised or resurrected,  restored, renewed and made whole. And how is this to be done? Through the gospel.
   Resurrection is a restoration a redemption and a renewal of what was lost and displayed  in the account of the Garden of Eden. This is when and where mankind fell saying “in that day you shall surely die” and it was immediate. They spiritually died by loosing the indwelling of Gods Holy Spirit. In the beginning God created man from the dust of the Earth then he breathed in him the breath of life and he became a living soul. When he fell he lost the Breath of Life. He lost eternal life and was sent out of the garden saying that he was denied the tree of life is to eat and live forever. To this he needed be restored and this is the purpose of the Gospel. For us to be a living soul and eat of the tree of life and live forever. If we believe the gospel this is what we receive.
For the reversal of the fall we learn from book of Romans. ” Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life”. And ” 10 And “if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead also gives life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who (now) dwells in you”.  And “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.”  
   This is scriptural resurrection without a visual death. And when “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us” He demonstrated for us that godliness, meaning God-Like-Ness can happen in our human bodies. Christ had a human body and said “I am the resurrection and the life” and Adam had a body before he fell when the Father said of him “it is good, very good.” This is the Restoration in the resurrection.
 Now from the old testament.
Isaiah said of this “Your dead shall live;
Together with my dead body[b] they shall arise. (26.19)
   Here we have a revelation from the prophet, that we rise in Christ. “In His dead body we shall arise”. We rise in his dead body not our own. This is what it means to be “in Christ” and not “in Adam”. All who are in Adam are dead, but in Christ we live. We associate with Christ of who Isaiah was talking about through baptism by the working of faith when we denounced our previous association with our Adam fallen sinfulness and die to that to come up out of the water proclaiming to be righteous and new. And if we profess that? You can be sure that God will hold you accountable to that event and your words.
To be “in Christ” is to be in the new Adamic replacement. Paul called Christ “the last Adam” who became “a life giving spirit”. He goes on to say that “we knew Christ in a human body , but we know Him like that no more” describing Christ’s invisibleness, but also showing that “in Him dwells the fullness of the God head body” while He was incarnate. Yes! The Word became flesh and dwelled among us for us to be like Him while we are incarnate saying “as He is so are we in the world”. And we are like Him now if we can learn to receive it.
Here then is the problem. We baptize in religious settings then turn and talk about the 2nd coming Christ. To another resurrection of another  time when a God man will visit planet earth and deliver us from all our woes and resurrect or rapture our mortal bodies and this is the error. Because “From dust ye are to dust you return” and flesh and blood does not inherit the kingdom”. But the mind does, and “that which is flesh is flesh and that which is spirit is spirit, you must be born again”. How? By these words. “We are brought forth by the word of truth to be a first fruit of His creation” while we are in our humanity. Or if you can’t believe this? Then believe the lie and wait.
   Was the Word who became flesh they call Jesus the savior? Did He rise from the dead? Then perform your duty of faith and believe! Rise with His dead body and receive your inheritance now. For all the promises of God are yes and amen in Christ”. And “TODAY is the day of salvation.  That other message is of another saving of another savior of another resurrection in a different time? That is what detains many from their inheritance now.
  Here is another perspective.  2 Corinthians 5.1 For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked.
    Here we have Paul explain that our new body is not physical saying when the body is destroyed we shall not be found naked. Why? Because hopefully you are not waiting for a new physicality but are being clothed with our new habitation which is from heaven now. “lest we be found naked”. That is where the 2nd coming mindset leaves you. Naked. We are to be clothing ourselves with our heavenly habitation, our attire our new nature now. The new body is now as we re-assemble the testimony of the Word of God being the very genetic code of Gid we absorb in ourselves and become new. Even as Paul went on to say: 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ,” And this all happens in the here and now because of the proof at the cross. Not at an illusive 2nd coming. “We are a new creation”? Yes! The newness is as we put on Christ as scripture mandates. We see Him as He is before He became flesh and dwelled among us. Which is? Invisible like the Father. The Word of God fully expresses the thoughts if God and the two are one. We become one with them “for we have the mind of Christ”. No Man has seen the Father ? Yes, but Christ declared Him” for our transfiguration. He made the Father visible to the respirited mind of faith. Even as the man Jesus said ” He who has seen Me has seen the Father and from now on you have seen Him and known Him”. How? By revelation. Revelation being a renewed thinking as we accept God as He truely is. Eternal, immortal, invisible. The only wise God”. 
Paul instructs us to put on our heavenly habitation from God eternal in the heavens now while we are sojourning in the human body so that we are not found naked? Meaning spiritually naked. Not naked like Adam who clothed himself in a fig leaf and not of God. He chose the physical over the spiritual and broke free from God. This is the reason Christ prayed “Father that they may be one (equal) with us”. So the resurrection is our invisible, eternal part that we put on now.
      Doesn’t scripture say that we are being transformed into His self same image from the glory to the glory by the spirit? Then why are some waiting and looking to the sky as tho they will be lifted up and leave their empty clothes laying on the ground as if they discard their falleness then? These people are “poor blind and naked”. Poor because they reject the gift, blind because they think the Kingdom is later, and naked because they wait for a physical change. Even Paul said in 1 Corinthians that the physical body is first and then the spiritual.  The body returns to dust. But some think it’s raptured?
So we have to discard the traditional religious concept of new life after a dead body as Jesus said ‘he who believes in Me has passed from death to life ”  and receive the resurrection of faith As Defined By scripture. That “TODAY is the day of salvation “. That we return to being a living soul. God says “I have heard and i have helped” And as John the Baptist said ” behold the lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world”? And he did to the renewed mind by renewing the spirit. Meaning the saving from the world and the consequences of the curse for the restoration the redemption the renewal and the resurrection as scripture repeatedly says.
     This is the fulfillment  of what Jesus said “Father I pray not that you take them out of the world but that you keep them from evil ” so He does. The curse is reversed to the renewed mind of faith. This is our invisible part that we keep when the body is discarded and after. The body cannot add or take away from this. But the mind can for “we are partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust”? So we do.
      Simply put resurrection means we are no longer in a fallen condition with Adam “. We are lifted up from the fall to what Adam lost. We are raised “with My dead body they shall arise”.. Adam and Eve fell and need to be lifted back up from a fallen state, a state of being dead by loosing fellowship with God by loosing His holy spirit. That was death, not a physical death.
     To be respirited means to be redeemed, restored and recreated to realize that everything from the beginning has been good very good and to partake of that. That is “if you can receive it”.
    We are raised up “to the last day” and not at the last day. Jesus tried to explain this to Mary and she didn’t get it so He cried.  Why? Because it’s the Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom” which the 2nd coming seekers deny because they look for a physical event, but the fall was spiritual. There was no cataclysmic event when he fell and there is none when we rise. It happens in the blink of an eye, unnoticeable to human perceptions. It was in the thinking that the departure took place.
 
We are in Adams “In that day ye shall surely die”, or we are “in Christ, in “The Day of our Lord” by what we believe “The Lords Day”, “In That Day”. We are in the day you shall surely live. This is TODAY if you can hear His voice. And “see that you do not refuse Him who speaks from heaven?
     There are two time frames. The many days of Adamic humanity defined by days measured in 24 hour intervals where everything is in a constant fight with death and decay, or “That Day” known as the day of the Lord. The day where there is no night for the Lamb is it’s light. The day that has no start or end where the Almighty lives. Not Adams days but “That Day”.
Isaiah 59.1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.” But some preach of another saving and rob people of Gods saving power. The 2nd coming mindset creates double minded people who are “unstable in all their ways, let not that man suppose he will receive anything from the Lord”. (James 1.8) So they pray repetitiously and say Gods will be done, but scripture says “ask anything in My name and the Father will do it”. They do not have this. They do not have the correct savior.
This is what it means to be “in Christ”. Our old man is buried with Him through baptism so that as He was raised from the dead to newness of life so are we. And this resurrection happens by faith through the gospel. That “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation” which is? Peter said “you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.” What does this have to do with an end time scenario?  And what does it have to do with a carnal rapture?
Lets look at some more. When you start to see it the scriptures take on new meaning. For if you see the saving as later? You are behind the veil. Your mind is darkened by the God of this age. Read: 2 Corinthians 3 and 4 to understand the veil more) 
Collossians 2.11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins[c] of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the (invisible to the human eye) working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him.
So if you are blinded to this you can’t have this. Your mind is darkened by a distorted gospel. But “we rejoice with joy inexpressable and full of glory”.
Gods Kingdom is at hand, on the tip of your tongue. His kingdom is for today. It is Him putting off the body of sins of the flesh. Like the circumcision of the heart. WE ARE MADE NEW. We are in this way a new creation,  restored to the beginning to sojourn as man was intended before the fall. This is “that which is from the beginning.
To put off the body of the sins of the flesh is not to put off the body but the sins. The thing the flesh embodies is a belief system. Much like a book embodies certain characteristics? The book can remain but edit out certain concepts so too with the body. “For we have this treasure in earthen vessels so that the glory may be of God and not ourselves”. Yes. It’s a new embodiment of principles much like rewriting the content of the book. The story line changes. The rescripting changes the ending.
      This is what happens when we put off the sins of doubting God and distrusting Him. We “through faith anf patience inherit the promises”. Not being just a remembrance of the promises but inheriting the very character content the promises describe. We inherit the very scripting of God, the very spirit by which it is written and not just words waiting to be fulfilled at some ambiguous 2nd coming.
This is the concept of “putting on Christ” one attribute at a time “till we all come to the fullness and stature of the Son of God”. A replica. For “as He is so are we in the world”. And we are that as we adopt His embodiment of words being re-spirited for faith. For “faith comes by hearing the words of God”. We grow in this way. We look at scripture “as in a mirror” till we become the thing that is defined between the pages. “Till the day (of the old way of thinking) dawns and the morning star rises in our hearts”. This is the transformation into Gods invisible attributes described in scripture “from glory to the glory as by the spirit”.
    This is totally different then the religious concept of putting off the flesh altogether as though that is sin or bad. That we don’t do because the flesh itself is only a reflection of the contents, “So let your light shine”?
     Now if what we just talked about could be true. If you think you need to bludgeon or discard the vessel? You see Adam was in his human vessel before he died in the spirit. He then walked in death having lost Gods Holy Spirit. So the resurrection can happen while we are in our humanity by putting off only the sins of the flesh and not the vessel of the flesh itself. This is the true non religious resurrection as defined by scripture. For “those who are the sons of God are those who follow the spirit of God”. And this is what God expects us to do. “Lest we be found naked”.
This all happens as Christ showed. The pre-exsitent word became flesh and dwelled among us”? Here is the proof that the resurrection can happen in the human body. Did not the man Jesus say “I am the resurrection and the life”? Check mate. You need to make an adjustment to your thought process to receive this because “He has given us everything that pertains to life and Godliness according to the knowledge of Him who cailed us to glory and virtue., This is the treasure in earthen vessels. To put off the body of the sins of the flesh and not the body itself.
The Kingdom of God is at hand, active for today.
