Alterod in the beginning made man in His image and in His likeness also saying go forth and have dominion subdue. And it was in this way that man was sovereign over himself and it is in this way that creation was designed to serve man each one individually for their own reality. As scripture says as a man thinketh in the heart so he is. And it is here that the fall of man took place in the regions of his mind. In the firmament of his mind he fell and having an inferior view of himself he is now subject to serving the creation, instead of creation serving him.
And this is the need for the redemption of God in Christ Jesus as it states in Colossians that it is through the blood of Christ he chose to reconcile all things to himself weather things in heaven or on earth all things being subject to the Son, we being in the Son, all things are not subject to us the way that they are originally designed.
So here again we have the redemption of all things in Christ Jesus, the “reconciled all things whether in heaven and on earth through the blood of the cross” as we just quoted. John also agrees saying we have seen and testify that God has sent his Son Savior of the world. We say again “the creation being good very good” is able to accommodate fallen man and redeemed man. For the purposes of fallen Man has this is “the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience” and as we have spoken Raisman resurrected man is very spirited man with the mind of Christ.
The fall of Adam was spiritual and so is the redemption. This is the only change in the redeemed saved person. Flesh returns to the dust. It is the spirit of the mind that is changed through knowledge ” receiving the end of your faith, the salvation of your soul “, and not a carnal transformation other than what the effects of how the renewed mind operates. Even as Paul stated ” all though our outside man perishes the inner man is renewed “. The carnal man deteriorates but the inner person grows in newness. This is the very purpose of our carnal residence. Our sojourn-ship is our internship while we practise godliness, or god-like-ness. “Till we all come to the full stature. A perfect man in the fullness of Christ.” He is the one we are modeled after by choice unlike like the default model of Adam. That is who you are if you don’t cooperate, to “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling “. A 2nd coming Jesus or a rapture detains you in the reasoning of your mind and robs you of your reward, telling you perfection is only attainable after death or by rapture and a 2nd coming. But it is the messengers of the eternal gospel that deliver this and not a 2nd coming. Those who believe in the delay are “the slothful steward who says that my Lord delays His coming” but He tarred not” Heb 10.
It was from the beginning man was made of dust and to dust they return. I don’t see an edict any where that over rides it. As though God did not know in the beginning and had to change the plan because He was caught off guard? Even as scripture says that flesh does not inherit the Kingdom. So goes all born of Adam. But we are born of a different element for “that which us born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. And “we are begotten by the word of truth to be a kind of first fruits of His creation”. We occupy the human body but under different terms. There are those who have “the spirit that now works in the sons of disobedience” meaning un belief. But we are re spirited to be blessed.
Yes Christ bore our poverty for us to be rich, and too all the prophets of old and as many as are called to lay the ground work of kingdom principles by preaching the kingdom is at hand even now are for the believer to receive the things that are said… which is? The Kingdom. For this reason scripture says that “you are no longer aliens or foreigners (or in limbo waiting for a 2nd coming Kingdom )but now you are fellow citizens with the saints, and members of the house hold of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ being the chief corner stone.
But there are many that deny this fact but the Kingdom at hand is more solid than concrete, granite or any composition from time and matter. For us who believe and receive we never leave, with scripture saying Revelation 3.12
And John 4 who is he who overcomes the world? But he who believes that Christ has come in the flesh. And did what? We have seen and testifythat God has sent His Son as savior of the world ” But once again, the second coming seekers are blinded by this because they seek another Christ and another saving from planet earth and they call it a second coming.
But for us? The Kingdom of God is at hand, even now!
