BODY SWAP [868a]

This is what the Christian life amounts to. We swap our faulty death destined body for his glorious heavenly one, in promise of its future reality.

We allow Him to inhabit our body for his purposes, for his will to be enacted on earth, and as becoming part of HIS body, we gain His heavenly presence to be futuristically made permanent.

As being “seated with him” we have His power and authority by which to fulfil His purpose with us on the earth.

Jesus has earned the right to live in me, by the purchase of me “with his blood”. I cannot deny Him His righteous acquisition. He earned the right to live in me, and He GIFTED me the right to live in Him.

This useless body destined for the grave, he takes and uses it to do his will on earth, as He gives us direction from “Heaven”.

His body that was racked with the pain and iniquity that is otherwise the lot and destiny of humankind, he presents to us as a final gift, by faith, on that day, as the completed product of his creation. He now takes our body that by faith as proactive for him, has been freed from deathly control to serve him, as we now allow Him to.

We serve the image of the Son of God within.

[The promise of life, by faith, is made a present reality]

WE SERVE THE IMAGE OF THE SON OF GOD WITHIN [867b]

There appear to be many words and phrases which form a common idea of whatever it is we are being instructed in. There is a communication of a principle, or a thought, or an idea; which often relies on the commonality of words and phrases as used in the bible. This is why it is important not to deviate too far from the literal rendering of scripture, although the way the translators have managed to hold it all together is quite admirable mostly.

I wrote some notes about “A science fiction view of the bible” but this would not be too popular with most believers. However “it” led me to another group of thoughts which appear to be quite revealing, to me anyway.

There are the verses about “release Barabbas”, about Adam being kicked out of heaven, about the devil being kicked out of heaven, about the veil of the temple torn from top to bottom. And etc.

“You have killed the prince of peace and desired a murderer be released to you”. THIS IS CODE FOR: In your heart you have already killed off Jesus, having given way to evil thoughts and fallen to temptation, you have released the murderer within you, [flesh]  and allowed him to exercise his will over you. We and our conscience are corrupted.

Adam kicked out of heaven [high place] and unable to return: THIS IS CODE FOR: The innocence of man became corrupted by falling to the temptation that arose as a direct result of a prohibitive thought [a commandment by God]. His inability to return to heaven in reality was his now corrupted conscience – He was unable to return to the high places, the moral high ground of his being.

The devil was kicked out of heaven THIS IS CODE FOR: This happened exactly as Jesus completed his mission on the cross, as He had said, “to destroy the works of the devil”. By assuming the responsibility for our sins he disarmed the powers and principalities, “He abolished the law” thereby removing the power and authority of the devil, flesh, and anything else to further accuse us by. His death enabled our death to be destroyed, our conscience to be reinstated in innocence before Him and us.

The veil was torn in the temple. THIS IS CODE FOR: The way into the holy place was now available. The barrier [such as Adam created] was now gone and man is free to approach God. Guilt fear sin and death are on notice of destruction so we are free to clear our conscience and be reconciled with God.

THIS IS ALL CODE FOR THE REINSTATEMENT OF THE ORIGINAL* CREATION WITHIN MAN HIMSELF.

Man’s problem is that he cannot accept and believe that he is a son of God, while he carries around the guilt that he does.

There is a necessity for detachment of our self identity, from the guilt that is normally attached to us. By nature, man is already detached from God by his knowledge of his sin and guilt. We can be detached from this sin and guilt by attachment to Jesus and his body which bore the penalty for us of this sin and guilt. By allowing His death to attach to us, and then allowing us to attach to His life, we can live with the Christ within who will always deal with sin and death for us, even as he has already done so.

So although we deny ourselves the right of being a son or daughter of God, we will give glory to the one we consider as worthy to receive praise and honour. We can serve and glorify the image of Christ, the son of God, within us, as being NOT US, “I live,Yet NOT I, but Christ lives in me”. The Christ is the son of God, remade in us.

Paul speaks of these things INTIMATELY. We serve the righteousness within, as given by God in the form of the Spirit of His Son. We serve the righteousness of the son within. Not us, HIM.

Mankind is continually crucifying the Christ within (themselves) because they consider themselves UNWORTHY to bear the stamp of His image. [That of the son of God]. There is detachment from the image, both prior to, and after, Christ is formed in us. Initial detachment through guilt, then detachment to isolate (again) that perfect image that He is. Now we can worship His life from the detachment of our death (in him).

So we are alive, but are not to consider ourselves as being overly involved or important, because we are serving HIM. I live, yet NOT I, but Christ lives in me. The life I live I live by faith in the son of God….who loved me and gave himself for me. So we are free to serve righteousness, to serve the inner Christ, who is not us, even though one day IT WILL BE.

The building up of righteousness, as we serve it (Him).

INNOCENT BEFORE GOD [864b]

At any moment of your life, no matter what you have done or think you have done to offend God, you are actually innocent in His sight. The two things here are what you are feeling, compared to what God is feeling.

You may be feeling guilty and feel all the things that may go with that, guilt, fear of judgement, whatever.

But God is feeling lovingly towards you, and having graciously already dealt with all sin in Jesus, only wants you to feel about yourself as HE does. Without condemnation, without guilt, and without fear of judgement.

The way that your feelings can agree with HIS feelings, is for you to agree with his removal of your sin through Jesus. When you agree with Him about your justification and liberation from condemnation, then you can also agree with Him about the free life he has provided for you by the resurrection of his son, who returns as the Spirit of life.

If however, you want to agree with your OWN feelings, and stay in the judgement and condemnation that they present to you, then you will remain in the truth of them as they exist from your perspective. And that perceived truth will be your ever existent reality.

God’s perspective is that He loves you and wants to see you free of your own faulty perspective of yourself*. To see that all sin death and guilt has been absorbed into the love of His Son, to free you from the sense of death that these things present, and to reject them and to accept His plan of life and liberation which is His already delivered release from these past matters, and that He keeps no record of wrongs, that they are only kept within our own conscience, which must be free of such so as to liberate us into life.

The suffering Jesus underwent was the suffering of our sin, Him being subjected to life in our kind of body which manifested earthly desires and temptations. It is the suffering from being isolated from God by our sin, and being separated from Him as Jesus was on the cross, so we now could be divorced from sin and married to Him, sin and guilt free, to serve what is right instead of what is wrong as we have done in the past.

[Love keeps no record of wrongs 1 Corin 13-5][*It is true that you have sinned, but the greater truth is that he has forgiven you of them all, so you can come out of that state that causes sin (separation from God’s love) and then go forward confidently in his love].

GOD’S LOVE AND HIS WRATH ARE THE SAME THING [865b]

When two opposing forces come together, there is conflict, and a resolution must result. We see this conflict within man, and see his anger as an outworking or display of this conflict.

When righteousness and unrighteousness come together, there is conflict. Now God and his Spirit of love are righteousness, and man and his spirit of sin are unrighteousness. These two, like Spirit and flesh, are incompatible and conflict results.

The nature of this conflict is that there is an agitation of the elements involved, and the stronger of them will overcome the weaker, and God who is love and righteousness will always emerge victorious from such a contest, as he did in Jesus on the cross, where, although death resulted to the physical, confirmed spiritual life then re-emerged with a new physical, that of the immortal body.

So when God’s love is in confrontation with man’s sin which is IN man, the internal agitation caused by the fear of the judgement inherent in this action which seeks a remedy to the difference between God’s righteousness and our unrighteousness, results in anger and what we perceive to be God’s “wrath”. With this wrath “on” us and in us, we are extremely uncomfortable, to say the least.

But it is God’s love we are experiencing, it is just that it is in opposition to what we are or have become because we identify with our sin nature, not with His love nature. He is flame to our paper. His nature HAS to create drama and trauma in us, for us, because our human nature is only temporary and must undergo change to be atone with HIS nature, the divine nature.

We experience the judgement on sin WITHIN us, and this results in the inner guilt that we feel whenever anything to do with God or righteousness presents itself to our awareness or consciousness. And because we were made in HIS image, we condemn ourselves because, having the knowledge of good and bad, we are capable of judging ourselves as guilty also. We also create inner wrath because we know our position is untenable and unsurviveable, unsustainable.

God then reveals to us that His very own nature of love through his very only begotten son, has confronted the sin nature of man that lies in his natural body and which lay in Jesus body also, and brought about the ultimate conflict and wrath towards the nature of “sin in the flesh”. Jesus’ personal “Armageddon”, which is also OUR “Armageddon”, and brought about, in the nature of his love, the “final resolution”.

The nature of love has been assaulted and tortured to the death  within the same body of sin that hosted the perfect spirit nature that Jesus was, and the Father suffered this conflict also as he watched his son die a terrible death on his cross. The perfect Spirit of Jesus was in conflict with the, our, inner nature of sinful flesh. His loving righteousness was brought to bear on the corrupted sin nature of “sin in the flesh” and the inner stress of this was painful and of immense anguish, as He was confronted with the reality of what the absence of the Spirit of God means in the darkness of its terrible presence. He was ‘in anguish in its flame’. The fires of hell brought Him to the ‘pit’ of hell, the grave, the tomb, from which he would emerge victorious, having overcome his mortal body, having changed it through loving conflict, to an immortal body.

This victory is ours in Him who has wrought this victory and who now presents it to us as a completed gift of life, of righteousness. The battle is over, “It is finished” for him and for us. Our only “battle” now is to install by faith this victory over death and all its components. And this “battle” lies in accepting this truth, that he has come in the flesh and provided all that we need to live life in and from Him, he who is love, and the “installation” lies only in this one word, BELIEVE.
