:coffee2:Well!!! I see that I have "already" shared "some" of that
that I have in my files re the "body."
Here's some more: This is not concrete, but in the studying stage.
Please feel free to critique.
I want to ask you a question, does the OUTER
tabernacle" have to do with the "body"?
See? there's another layer........!!! the worldy sanctuary.
People see that as a natural building........but perhaps
the outer tabernacle tells us it is the body???
The outer tabernacle is that which is trampled down
is it not? If this is what it means, I can see a lot......
Fear not them that can kill the "body" and after that can
do NO MORE....but fear HIM...etc. etc.
And Jesus builds the TRUE Tabernacle, that is surely
not the outer .......but in Hebrews, isn't that speaking
of the NEW BODY which the Lord pitched, and not man.
People are "in bondage" when man rules.....but they
rejoice when the Lord does. Man is under tutors and
governors til the time appointed of the Father to bring
them out and place them "under a HIGHER Authority."
The Authority that is a wall of fire, invisible protection
built by the Spirit, .......but no man takes this honor
to himself, it takes the Spirit to say so.
Things do progress.......we can see that from all the
authorities listed in lst Cor 11.
This topic brought about discussion of the NEW body,
the "heavenly" eternal house reserved for us.
but that is NOT what I was originally referring to.
Perhaps it might be best described as the
"quickened body" as maybe that best decribes
what I was referring to.
If that same spirit that raised up Christ Jesus "dwell" in
you, it shall QUICKEN your MORTAL body.
A mortal body
is not the heavenly new body, but it "has" been quickened
by the Spirit that inhabits it.
A "mortal body" has NOT put on immortality, or else
it would be an immortal body, which I think the "heavenly
NEW body is" ......not the NEW MAN, but the NEW body
for the NEW Man. This gets hairy! ha
But the quickened mortal body ........is probably more
describing what I am or was talking about in the first
Now, that cannot take place unless as some of you wrote
the "consciousness" is quickened first! So the
consciousness is being "changed" from serving dead
works to serve the LIVING God, and to come to perfection
if God wills. And this we will do, if God permits.
So the "change" of "consciousness" brings us to a
"consciousness" void of what the "consciousness of
sins" brought or brings us to, and it is HIS Consciousness
as it is written: "no more consciousness of sins." The
Law does not do this, the gift of God does.
And as that happens, it "affects" the BODY. One person
above said it this way:
I believe we, our true bodies the hidden, inner one will
manifest healing in the outer one whenever we can accept,
become one with healing. The inner one IS and always
has been in line with the "consciousness" of God, and it
is the MORTAL body that is quickened, not the NEW Body
the NEW ONE needs no quickening, it is "reserved" and
But our "mortal bodies" need quickening .......
to be PRESERVED.......sustained........til
So it is the indwelling spirit that quickens even the body
not just the consciousness.
I hope I have made that a little plainer. Anyway, what
I see is maybe NOT healing but the body being changed
while it is being quickened ......we shall not all sleep,
but we shall be changed.
To NOT sleep, is to "awake." Not talking of what body
we shall have in the eternal heavens, it needs no
quickening, it is reserved already in a perfect state.
But the "mortal body" needs quickening for the Spirit
to cause it to be "wholly" preserved. And I pray God
that your "whole" body, soul, and Spirit, be Preserved
to that day, .........seems to be a time of the Awakened
Quickened bodies, but Eternal Bodies, are when time
is no more.
Do you not believe that God can make a Quickened Body
to go with that Consiousness of God? We have somewhat
of a Consciousness of God now, do we not also have
somewhat of a Quickened Body? Surley so, for Psa. 91 says
"I will satisfy Him with looooooooooooong life, because
he has known my name.
Perhaps this is part of the "covenant" PROMISED to Abraham
and when God fulfilled it, it "included" a quickened body
for the long life. So then when it says, "I pray that your "whole"
body, soul, and spirit be preserved ........no wonder it also says
"Faithful is He that has called you, and HE will do it."
It has nothing to do with Abraham's words, but it was a Gift from
God to him.
So .......the two go together! His Consciousness and the "quickened
The Revelation of His
Consiousness affects the mortal body. It is quickened
by the Revelation as it comes. No matter what. Nothing
is too hard for God. We shall not all sleep........
Maybe the Lord is showing me more on the "body" than
I've been able to comprehend before............It has always been
easier for me to see things for the Spirit and soul.....but this
prayer was to be "wholly" preserved. Body, Soul, and Spirit.
Just maybe so.
That Calvary was not just for the "taking away of sins" by
the Lamb of God, but we shall behold HIM and He shall say
"Take up thy bed and walk!"
