Focus, today, is upon the possibilities for divinity to display action, existence, and purpose that would identify the character, nature and substance of GOD as exalted, full of glory, omnipotent, and sovereign.  As with judgment and revelation, salvation is not a “one-time event” that may occur during the life of the one who is “savior”, and continue to operate in his absence or following his death.  For Christian believers salvation pertains to eternal life, and that the life for the fullness of divinity (we say, the GODhead), rather than simply for created beings and living creatures such as angels, animals, insects, and mankind.  The dead have neither the awareness nor self-will required to acknowledge, praise or serve GOD.  Christ lives as High Priest and Son of the Highest serving the Holy who also lives.  Divine salvation is a continuous unfolding of conditions within various intimate relationships to GOD (e.g., as children, heirs, offspring, spouse) determined by the presence and movement of spirit upon multiple levels and completing multiple sacred operations.  Included are atonement, communion, confession, praise, propitiation, rebirth, repentance, and sanctification.  One of the fighters at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “Anonymous” (who may be an Islamic believer, and who has shared no profile information) posted the following:

 

Jesus Christ didn’t come back to life.. how can you be so dumb to believe this?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  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.  But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.  For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.  But every man in his own order:  Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.  (1st Corinthians 15:  12-23, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Christ The Solid Rock? (08/07/2016); True and Living GOD (08/03/2016); The Purpose of Resurrection (07/015/2016); Divine Inheritance and Resurrection? (07/06/2016); The Last Prophet? (09/27/2015); Heaven For Muhammad? (09/01/2012); Ghosts (09/02/2012)

 

“Anonymous”, in order to avoid deceit and spiritual confusion, it requires that created beings and living creatures have sacred knowledge as well as life experience applying their own inward spirit substance from GOD.  Those who think the actual issue is simply one of believing that Christ was raised from the dead, are “so dumb” they fail to apprehend the issue is one of believing divinity is capable of resurrection, the second death, and more—atonement and forgiveness for sins; bestowing eternal life; existing in flesh (we say, Incarnation); destruction of all that presently exists as defiled, tainted, and offensive to GOD.
