Christ is birthed from Father, He is the firstfruits, He is the Aleph-Tau(alpha-omega), in Him the fullness dwelt, in Him we live and move and breathe

I just took other definitions strongs gives.  heaven= abode of God, earth= abode of men

Firstfruits just kept jumping out at me. 

John 1:1 has always seemed like a parallel to Genesis 1:1 to me.

Yes, you got it. "in the beginning" =Bereshyt and  it means in the very house or dwelling place of ALL things. And as you say Christ for He is the firstfruits of all of that house. That is why it is very important to KNOW that all of what we read is in a true sense being yet "becoming" (a work in progress so to speak,) and why to continue to teach that Gen.1:27 is what God "did" rather than what He is DOING now. And why as you "see" that Jo. 1:1 is part of Gen.1:1 I say Amen and Glory!

Ahhh..... micah!

Now I see what you have been getting at all this time.

Not that man became a living soul but that we are still becoming that living soul.

Not exactly, man/adam did become a living soul [ a start] but that START is becoming.

1Jn 3:1  See ye what love the Father hath given to us, that children of God we may be called; because of this the world doth not know us, because it did not know Him;
1Jn 3:2  beloved, now, children of God are we, and it was not yet manifested what we shall be, and we have known that if he may be manifested, like him we shall be, because we shall see him as he is;
1Jn 3:3  and every one who is having this hope on him, doth purify himself, even as he is pure.

Beloved Servant:


I understand.
