John 5, 'To some, the resurrection is in the future. To others, they confess to have resurrection life. The resurrection is always referred to as singular in the scriptures. "Resurrections" is not found in the scripture. There seem to be two mentioned in John 5. Jesus did say there were two conditions of those resurrected (all who hear the voice of me Son of God). Some receive life and others receive judgment.
Those who hear the voice and live do not come into judgment. Those who believe his voice find life and become as the son of man and are the ones who can judge unbelievers. To those awakened to life, the spirit places them in the body of Christ, the Son of God. To those having believed they were mortal and have repented to God, at his command, find life. No one realizes they were dead in trespass and sin until the light of life has come, which gives them the eyes of understanding. Only Christ has immortality and he lives in the light that is not accessible to man, Man is not that which is saved. Man is dead. That is why Jesus was manifested – to raise those in Adam from death to life. Not in part, but as a new generation in Christ - new in body, soul and spirit. You have to realize this is an issue of faith. In body, soul, and spirit they are new. The birth is the complete Son of God - not partial.
We are not a man with body, soul and spirit, nor are we a man with the spirit of God in us. We are a new creature and a new creation in Christ Jesus. Man's spirit only knows that of man. The spirit of God no one knows but God. The believer has not received the spirit of the world, but has received the spirit, which is of God (I Corinthians 2:11-12). The flesh man lives in the sense of his being, which is dependent upon the body. This is his soul. If he chooses not to give up this dwelling he is destroying or losing that which he attempts to retain. Without this change of consciousness from flesh to spirit, there can be no freedom from sin. It will have its way in thought, word or deed.
There are many who claim to be believers. They claim they are born again, saved, forgiven and are going to heaven. Then, they confess that they are yet sinners.
Man cannot say his generation is out of a birth. No man can claim that there was an original birth to man. Adam was not born. He had no father or mother. So, it is with all mankind - calling all men children of God has no foundation. God is not a man, nor the son. The son of mankind represents men, women and children, thus the words and the manifestation in the likeness of sinful flesh is for all mankind.
II Corinthians 5:14-15,
There is no life in anything separate from God. Believers are partakers of the divine nature through his Son. The death of Jesus on the cross is symbolic; for death and life have to do with spirit, not flesh. Jesus was put
The real crucifixion was in the hearts of mortal man since the word was rejected in favor of another word in the beginning. The real intent of God's word is Christ - an expression of grace and mercy. No human can understand that which the Son of God went through from creation to the cross. Only in identification in his life are we able to sense, in part, the world's rejection of our Lord. The belief that Jesus was born of Mary and died on the cross is based on mortal mind and fleshly observation, along with the letter of the report.
The Son of God was and is, and always will be, spirit. On these who do not believe this and see it this way, the veil is not rent. They cannot see beyond the mind of the flesh, which is a death realm. Nothing comes to man first in the realm of understanding. Forgiveness is, in fact, a touch of the guilt-free mind of Christ This is not realized until the spirit reveals we are born out of death into a new life in the spirit. This is challenged by sin coming again and unbelief tells people they are yet sinners, which they confess. This is unbelief. Many live this way. They have a scripture based belief that they are going to heaven. Well, it is not in the scriptures. No flesh and its blood (sense of being) will enter the kingdom of God. There are few ministries today that have the faith to erase this unbelief. When the son of man comes, will he find faith in the earth? Do we understand who the son of man is? Jesus said this while he was yet on earth as the son of man. His continuing ministry is now in those who hear the spirit.
