The divine use of flesh and visible form for revelation of GODhead is in view, today.  An image of GOD, who is spirit, is the source of all that exists, and reigns over all creation has been presented to mankind using the frameworks of time, space, and material form.  More than this, the image of GOD that is to be continually displayed by mankind has been carefully presented to the living upon the earth, and continues to appear within the GODhead through the person of Jesus Christ.  The fighter at “Yahoo!

Christians: Is the actual human body of Jesus God (remember, the mind is a physical part of a body, as an arm is a physical part of a body)?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.  But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.  And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?  Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself:  handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.  And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.   And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?  And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.  And he took it, and did eat before them.  (Luke 24:  36-43, KJV)

“Jack”, mature Christian believers trust that, through operations of the Holy Spirit, blood, correction, and truth from the cross are flowing to here and now.  The image presented to mankind through Jesus Christ displayed a form and nature to the living that at once made visible both carnal and spirit being that is a permanent aspect of the GODhead.  Just as Jesus was an appearance of divinity using flesh and blood (we say, Incarnation), he is also an appearance of mankind in perfection.  For this reason, the Savior is spoken of as “the second Adam,” and the one putting forth a “new creation.”  As the followers of Jesus, we are to experience his “humanity”.  Many of the devils residing in victims of flesh acknowledged Jesus as Christ and Messiah.  Because Satan could not recognize Jesus upon the earth as the Son who had appeared in heaven, following the Lord’s consecration at the Jordan, Satan challenged Jesus repeatedly to “show him some ID.”  There is no reason to question whether Jesus had all the limbs, organs and tissues found in other human bodies:  we know he was sufficiently mortal to bleed and suffer pain; did die upon the cross; and his remains had to be taken down for burial.  The cross provided a prophetic demonstration to reveal the best in mankind as well as the endowment that his disciples and followers are to receive.  Created beings and living creatures are to be vessels of divine life essence (we say, breath, spirit, word).  GOD is to appear within flesh  through inseparable spirit substances that include faith, holiness, joy, lovingkindness, longsuffering, meekness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  Consider how this is stated using language from the Bible that is prophecy:

(1.)  Leviticus 17:  11, King James Version (KJV):  11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood:  and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls:  for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

(2.)  Isaiah 11:  1-5, KJV:  1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:  2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;  3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:  4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth:  with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.  5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

(3.)  Isaiah 9:  6-7, KJV:  6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:  and the government shall be upon his shoulder:  and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.  7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

There is far more to be said, understood, and spiritually taken in.  (For example, (4.)  Romans 8:  5-9, KJV:  5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:  for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
