So many loves the physical manifestation of the Lord than the Lord Himself thereby exalting them above the One who gave them. Somewhat it looks uneasy for us to look beyond the externalities of God’s manifestation but it is very vital for us to understand that the GLORY and POWER that the Lord has called every believer to is paramountly spiritual; they are far beyond the physical.
1 Corinthians 10:1-9
Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.
The Israelites’ problem in Egypt was not because they were hungry but because they were trapped in a system that does not allow for them to offer true worship to their God. Their journey out of there was therefore a spiritual one. In the process of coming out of Egypt physically, they experienced a lot of physical manifestations of the Lord and were drowned by them because they could not the spiritual reality. The spiritual realm is a realm that can be without the natural, it is therefore an anomaly to explain the entire spiritual realm by the natural.
In that realm there is no need for oxygen. This is more reason God wants to raise us to live the Life of the spiritual here on earth; a life raised above death, above the use of oxygen and so to those who already has it, they know that no aid from the natural is needed and living this life does not come by confession, but UNDERSTANDING.
1 Corinthians 15:12-19
Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.
Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.
For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.
Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
After Jesus suffered, he entered into glory not in heaven but on earth. This is the essence of the gospel- to bring Resurrection Of Life. The prize for everyone who presses on after believing is the resurrected life. It is important to emphasize this to our souls because this is the only anchor we need and the hope that will sustain us. It is an anchor that goes beyond the veil. Many believers have lost hope and it tells on their faces as they grow older. One of the ways to show we have hope is how much radiance we carry as we grow older. We are to keep seeing the glorious life because the earth here will not give the space for it seeing that it is filled with contradictions. The earth is what the Lord wants to give unto us so He has to save us from it first by resurrecting us; this resurrection is not for those who are physically dead but those who are spiritually dead that after we are raised, we will radiate that glory. This is a mystery that the devil cannot understand and which brings confusion to the earth itself – A process where there is deliverance for one who is condemned to death.
We are going on a voyage which is coming into the full inheritance of the glory of God. Let this mind be in us and let it be our pursuit because soon we will definitely see true GLORY!
