Editor: Some of you reading this message may not agree with it at first blush, but I implore you to read it and ponder with prayer and supplication.

Some people assume that resurrection means that peoples’ dead bodies will somehow be reconstituted and the dead in Christ will come back to life and the Christians alive on earth will be caught up in the sky to meet the Lord – literally!{{more}}

THE TRUE MEANING OF RESURRECTION

When Christ said: “Let the dead bury the dead”, we understand that He meant the spiritually dead must bury the physically dead! Spiritually dead because they were far removed from the love of God and were on Satan’s side.

When Jesus said: “He that believes in me, though he die yet shall he live”, he meant those who believe in him have spiritual life always even though they are physically dead!

Resurrection, therefore, has nothing to do with physical life or death but really means “leaving the realm of Satan and dwelling in the realm of God!” A rebirth so to speak.

DEATH CAUSED BY THE FALL WAS NOT PHYSICAL DEATH SINCE

ADAM AND EVE LIVED PHYSICALLY AFTER THE FALL!!

The spirit world was created before the fall as the realm where all who fulfill the purpose of their creation will go to be with God.

The fall, therefore, did not cause man to physically die. It separated man from God, and this is akin to death (spiritually).

Since the fall is not the cause of physical death, resurrection when referred to by God does not mean revival from physical death!

RESURRECTION MEANS THE PROCESS OF BEING RESTORED FROM DEATH CAUSED BY THE FALL TO LIFE IN GOD’S REALM THROUGH GOD’S PROVIDENCE OF RESTORATION THROUGH JESUS.

Resurrection, therefore, is a spiritual transformation in man’s heart and spirit and cannot be readily perceived by looking at a person just as Jesus’ divinity was not physically seen by the people of his time.

HOW DOES GOD RESURRECT HIS PEOPLE?

By restoring us to Himself through recreation to our original selves as God intended when He created us .

RESURRECTION= RESTORATION!

The resurrection of a spirit can only be achieved through earthly life.

GOD HAS WORKED OUT THREE ORDERED STAGES FOR US TO ACHIEVE RESURRECTION OR RESTORATION!

(1) FOUNDATION – FORMATION STAGE RESURRECTION

This is designed by God to resurrect all those spirits who lived from Adam to Jesus. By believing in and practicing the OLD TESTAMENT LAW, people were justified by God (the age of justification by works). These believers became resurrected in spirit to the formation stage and became FORM SPIRITS and on death they abided in the form spirit level of the spirit world. Persons who lived before the Old Testament were given will be resurrected through RETURNING RESURRECTION (explained later).

(2) GROWTH STAGE RESURRECTION

Because the people of Jesus’ time did not believe in Him they killed him, sadly causing restoration to be incomplete, and delayed it to the second coming of Christ. Jesus said very plainly “whoever lives and believes in me shall never die” Jesus did not have to die for these believers to get eternal life(resurrection!)

All people who lived in this age, and believed, can receive growth stage resurrection by believing in the NEW TESTAMENT.

GOD WILL THEREFORE JUSTIFY THEM -THE AGE OF JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH.

These believers became resurrected in spirit to the growth stage and became LIFE SPIRITS and upon death they abide in the life spirit level of the spirit world. (Called PARADISE by Jesus)

(3) COMPLETION STAGE

RESURRECTION (The present time)

This is the time when all people are to be resurrected both physically and spiritually through the returning Christ and complete God’s three-stage process of restoration!

CHRIST AT THE SECOND ADVENT BRINGS A NEW TRUTH WHICH WILL FULFILL THE PROMISES OF THE

OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT.

People alive today must believe in the Lord of the second advent follow and attend him. These people will then achieve restoration both physically and spiritually to become DIVINE SPIRITS. This age is called the age of JUSTIFICATION BY ATTENDANCE. When these believers die they abide in the DIVINE SPIRIT LEVEL OF THE SPIRIT WORLD. Therefore, up to Jesus’ crucifixion on the cross, only the second level was completed, thus Jesus promised the thief to be with him in paradise only. The Divine level awaits the Lord’s return.

We can recall that in the Bible Jesus promised believers they will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. This was before it was determined that Jesus was not going to complete the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. At the cross Jesus could only promise the thief Paradise, since the Kingdom of Heaven must await his return.

THE FIRST RESURRECTION

This is the hope of all believers. To partake in the first resurrection. This will be accomplished through Christ of the second advent. The Lord of the second advent will cleanse original sin and restore original people enabling us to fulfill our TRUE purpose of creation. The first resurrection is for the first spirits who become DIVINE SPIRITS!

In order for Christ of the second advent to complete restoration he must find 144,000 believers who could follow him and be cleansed and subjugate Satan.

It is very important to follow the Lord of the second Advent!

THE PROVIDENCE OF RETURNING RESURRECTION

The growth of the human spirit requires two kinds of nourishment. Life elements from God and vital elements from the physical self. That being so, spirits cannot grow apart from the body. As a result, spirits of persons who die before reaching perfection on earth can be resurrected only through the providence of returning resurrection. By helping people of faith living on earth these spirits can complete their mission at the same time.

This is known as RETURNING RESURRECTION! Jesus said John the Baptist was Elijah come again. By this he meant John was being helped by the spirit of Elijah to fulfill his mission.

HOW RETURNING RESURRECTION WORKS?

Spirits pour earthly fire on persons and give them grace to heal people, give prophesies, inspire them to do Godly things etc.

After the advent of Jesus, spirits from the form spirit level of spirit world who believed in the Old Testament (Mosaic Law) assisted people living on earth then to believe in Jesus. We read that many saints rose from the grave and were seen after the death of Jesus. Matt.27;52. These saints graduated from form spirits to life spirits through the principle of returning resurrection!

THIS IS THE TIME OF THE SECOND ADVENT. NOW IS THE TIME! SPIRITS FROM PARADISE OR LIFE SPIRITS ARE ALL DESCENDING ON EARTH TO HELP PEOPLE ON EARTH BELIEVE IN AND ATTEND THE RETURNING CHRIST!! By helping people of like faith, they, too, will receive the same benefit and become DIVINE SPIRITS. This phenomenon in some religions is usually referred to as reincarnation (not understanding the cooperation between spirit world and the people living on earth!)

SAINTS WHO ABIDE OUTSIDE PARADISE

This refers to spirits who died outside Christ (bad people, non religious people, people who are from other religions). They will descend to persons on earth of like mind and work with them to correct their wrong belief/lifestyle and inspire them to follow the returning lord and thus all will achieve DIVINE SPIRIT RESURRECTION. This process will work to help unify all the world religions to believe in and follow the Lord of the second advent who comes to save and unify all mankind.

All believers must be alert and aware of this providence. They must be able to correctly discern the prompting of the spirit to assist in the creation of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth and ultimately the Kingdom of Heaven in Heaven Aju.
