The Champion in Glory

Having bore the heat of the day I retire in peaceful repose in the garden anticipating the voice of the Lord like Adam had done before He was removed. Having been like Adam after his departure, stained by the sin of unbelief, for he disbelieved the Lord and followed another.

But it is through Christ that we have been redeemed and restored to what Adam lost. It is not the Adamic or natural man that has access to the tree of life because there is a flaming sword spinning every way to guard the tree of life to keep the natural man from eating it, that is those in the likeness of Adam and Eve. If they weren’t denied that tree, they could’ve eaten from it and lived dead to God forever. 

Having put off the Adamic nature and forfeited your association with the old nature that by faith being publicly displaying by baptism, we put on the new man who is created in true holiness and righteousness in the likeness of Jesus Christ. And it is this new nature that we are beyond sin and shame and have been restored to the Father. And it is the Christ of the cross who saved and redeemed for this purpose even as Paul pleaded for us to; be reconciled to the Father, for He made Him who knew no sin to become sin for us to be the righteousness of God in Him. And this was accomplished at the cross. And because of this you are no longer seen by God the Father (in the old) Adamic nature but (In Christ). If this is so for you, then you can eat of the tree of life. But not just any Jesus can do this for you.
 
2 Corinthians 3.18. For we have this treasure in earthen vessels. What treasure? The light of the Glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ, from verse 6. And it is only a glorified Christ that correctly portrays the Father. The future reign of a 2nd coming Jesus to wage war and save people from planet earth still has battles and enemies and cannot correctly portray the Father because He has yet to be victorious over His future enemies. But it is at the cross that He totally annihilates Satan sin and death. And He died once to put away sins. It further states the He defeated him who had power over death (Hebrews 2.14). Then He led free the captors and gave gifts to men (Eph 4.8) So you see He does not do this at a second coming as though He needs to do this again. That is blasphemous and spits in the face of the Christ of the cross who already did this.
Think of it like this. With any sport there is a champion. Through the various matches, games and playoffs they battle it out to see who gets the trophy or the title or the crown. It is after the last game has been played and the title is given that there is a victor, that there is a champion. They can now hoot and holler and pop the champagne and stand at the pinnacle and wave the trophy. This is their moment in glory.There is no victory or crown or glory as long as there is a game or a battle left to be won. 
This is what it means that Christ is glorified. That He is victorious. That “it is finished”. He said “I have overcome the world” This is “the image of the Glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ the victor that now transforms all who believe in the glory to the glory which is the place of our calling and our reward through the gospel of the cross not a 2nd coming that cannot transform you now but later after that battle. To not see the glory of God in the face of a victorious Christ is to see another Jesus. A weak one, who is maybe taking a break to fight another day? This jesus has no trophy and with that view of the cross is a shameful act that couldn’t seal the deal. The Father would hang His head but instead He said “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased”.
 
It is the god of this age that eschews mars and mimics a heavenly Victor by portraying a different one one in the age of time and matter by presenting a gospel of a future Jesus to save through assorted raptures and resurrections with fightings and battles to be victorious. And this appeases the carnal thinking. These people are taken captive to these assorted theories being unaware and unlearned in the invisible heavenly realities accomplished “In Christ:.
 
2 Corinthians 4.3-4 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe (in the glory), lest the light of the gospel of the Glory of Jesus Christ (the victor) should shine upon them”. And they are perishing because they are idle waiting for another jesus to transform them at a 2nd coming and not now through the gospel “from glory to glory”. The are blinded from the truth of the cross by another Jesus. But scripture says;
 
Luke 24.26 “Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things to enter His Glory?” And He did.
 
John 5.43 And the Jesus of the cross said “I have come in My Fathers Name and you do not receive me. If another comes in His name you will receive him.” And it is this other coming one who comes in the name of the Father the 2nd coming seekers receive. This is the false jesus and the anti- christ if possible to deceive the elect.
The Fathers name in Hebrew is Yasha and means savior Strongs # 3467 is translated in the Greek/English Hossana. Hossana, save now, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. And He did. He came on the foal of a colt having salvation. The donkey is not coming back.
Now back to the tree of life. The scripture says Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” And Christ did. He  becomes the fruit of the tree of life having bore our sin and death for us to have life the moment we believe. And we continue to eat this fruit not for man, but for the new that are in the likeness of Jesus Christ. This is your new sustenance and your transformation
The Kingdom of God is at hand!
