Hello Audience! Welcome to RTGF. It is a platform to teach revelation knowledge. Our advice to you is to draw near to the word of God and get knowledge rather than sacrifice. Abba Father we thank you for Christ’s intercession for us to open up scripture like first Century disciples. It is to equip those sanctified in Christ Jesus with revelation knowledge; for the work of the ministry, for edifying the body of Christ, till all come to the unity of faith and of the knowledge of Christ, to the perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. (Eph. 4:12-13). Pay attention to see and hear scripture speaks to you as you study scripture, or hear the word of God, or view it on screen.
My name is Dr. Danson Ubebe, teacher and author.
Our topic for today is: Why are we here? – Revelation of the beginning, and the spirit man is. It is the third Episode of the “Root Series” titled: Know the truth and enter by the door who is Jesus before He is shut (Rev. 3: 7-8).
Our aim is to draw your attention to foundation of the world because it is crucial for sound biblical knowledge.
It is written in (1Tim. 6:16) that God dwells in unapproachable light above the circle of the earth (Is. 40:22). God in His Word created the heavens and the earth in the beginning (Gen. 1:1). He stretched them out to dwell in (Is. 42:5). He also created the deep made up of the heaven and the things in it, the earth and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it (Rev. 10:6). He made the sea, the earth and the spirit birthplace of things in them. They form the substance of things seen, which are shadows (Ex. 25:40). It was from them God called forth the things seen (Heb. 11:3). As God commanded each origin yielded its creatures; the sea (Gen. 1:20-22), the earth (Gen. 1:11-12), and the spirit of flesh (Gen. 1:26). It is for this reason man is a spirit and not because of born again spirit of God given to a believer (1John 4:13). God created other beings and things which belong to Him. Everything were in the realm of heaven and perfect as He is (Ps. 18:30). Lucifer rebelled and was cast to earth (Rev. 12:9). So what happened going forward?
Above circle of earth: The deep was created perfect within the earth God stretched out earlier to dwell in. The firmament divided the light and water above from the water and darkness below. Regarding the creation of man; male and female (Gen. 1:27), preachers often dance around this puzzle according to opinion of man. I hear load voices saying woman was created at once with the man in (Gen. 1:27). Yet God found out much later that there was no one like Adam. Therefore He saw the need to get a companion for him. But scripture is clear of who man is; image and likeness of God (1Cor. 11:7). In the Trinity, made up of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost (Mt. 28:19) there is no God the woman, nor mankind. Even after resurrection mankind will be like angel in heaven and there will be no marriage of male and female (Mt. 22:30). So God did not create female life in man. If He did he would have be different from the image of God. Rather He made created him to speak and breath in the image and likeness of three persons in one God; like begets like (Eccl. 3:11). Each man was made unique and then unified. As shown in the insert the spirit was formed within man (Zech. 12:1). This suggests it is not this spirit man is or who you are. Rather this spirit is own by the man God created and who scripture regards as the soul as it will be validated later.
Continuing with creation of man, God formed the body or outward man with mix of dust of the ground and of mist of sea water (Gen. 2:6-7). This can be collapsed into spirit and sludge (muddy water). It was similar to the born again of spirit and water –the difference is water for Adam had extra molecules and is natural. Moreover the body was made with hands. Whereas the body of born again is spirit and is made without hands (2Cor. 5:1). After God finished the components of man He breathed into the nostrils of man of dust and man became a living being – another speaking spirit – product of three origins of: spirit, and earth and sea.
Now this could be demonstrated as follows: The three persons in one man are: the soul at the middle and as the principal and coordinator with male contact points at two ends (1Pet. 3:4). The inner contact of the soul bonds with female of spirit man who is the lamp of God (Prov. 20:27). It is the spirit too who knows and searches the deep things of man (1Cor. 2:11). The outer contact of the soul bonds with female of the body or outward man whose members function as instrument of performance in the exterior undertakings (Rom. 6:13). All three must be born again at different times for man or you to be wholly perfect as a person (1pet. 1:9). So the man God created male and female; He created them means the three persons in one man were glued into one masterpiece in male and female or pin and socket union. The rationale for this covenant will be made clearer later. Meanwhile it eases the return of the components of man to respective origin at mortal death – the spirit to God who owns it and the body to the dust of the ground (Eccl. 12:6-7). Next God prepared the Garden of Eden on celestial earth, which is of the eternal realm.
Garden of Eden: 1. God put Adam in Eden to serve, which is the purpose God created man (Rev. 4:11). Certainly it was not for relationship which is the view of man; Philosophical attempt to override the word of God with opinion of man. He forbade him to eat fruit of tree of knowledge of good and evil, else he would die (Gen. 2:17). It was the only appointed time for men to die once before judgment (Heb. 9:27). This death was executed in Eden. It is unrelated to mortal death which happens at random and not once to all men as required by the declaration.
- To give man a companion God made woman from man and for man (Gen. 2:18, 21-23). The woman is the glory of man (1Cor. 11:7-10). This is the origin of relationship which involves mutual respect between partners.
- Adam disobeyed God’s first law. So he died as God laid down; separated spiritually and physically at the same time from God. How? The sin separated his spirit from God (Is. 59:2). It also detached his inner organs from the glory of God which had covered him as his outward look; symbolized by the veil of the temple (Ex. 26:33). So man behaved like the way serpent detaches its nature from its old skin. It was the moment man lost the glory of God (Rom. 3:23). Without any cover of his inward form he saw his nakedness. He realized he was no longer looking like God. So he was ashamed. It is in this nakedness man is born, dies, and returns to this day (Job 1:21).
- So God cursed Adam (Gen. 3:19) which included his return to the dust of the ground from where he came. This is what is fulfilled by mortal death. The taken up of Enoch alive to heaven (Gen.5: 21-24) & Elijah too suggest this. It means God do repent about the curse. But with regards to sin committed by Adam God does not forgive without bloodshed. Otherwise the sacrifice of Jesus would be in vain. Moreover mortal death does not separate man from God for he is born in the state of death or separation from God (Rom. 5:12).
- Blood introduced in man when He shed animal blood & made a tunic of skin to cover his nakedness (Gen. 3:21). Tunic of skin is type garment for glorious body at resurrection (Phil. 3:21). It is what is clothing man’s nakedness till new robe (Is. 61:10-11). Meaning the tunic of skin is the current outward look of man. God made blood the cover for sin and gave it for sacrifice. It’s the instant all nations of men on earth were made from one blood (Acts 17: 26). So it is the lack of knowledge that engenders pigmentation difference amongst peoples. Lastly He exiled sinful Adam into darkness, known as terrestrial earth; represented by (Fig. 3B) in insert.
For terrestrial earth, God created the sun, the moon and stars in the firmament to rule the Night in turn as day and night for sons of darkness (Gen. 1:14-18). The advent of Jesus awakened the sons of light and sons of the day (1Thes. 5:5). It equally revealed who God is. On Jesus’ part, He is the Word of God which went out of the mouth of God as “let Us incarnate” as fully man and fully God in the flesh and it was so (1Tim. 3:16). It was similar to the declaration in the beginning of; let Us create man in Our image and likeness. So Jesus is the double of God based on the oath by Himself (Is. 45:23). It debunks the notion that Jesus is the second person in three persons in one God. Upon Jesus’ resurrection He sits as fully man and fully God at the right hand of God the Father. Thus He is the front view of God the Father (Lk. 22:69; Heb. 8:1). So to see Jesus either in the flesh or in the spirit is to see the Father (John 14:9). On the interior face of God, is the Holy Spirit as the living water (John 4:10). The water flows by breath of God (John 20:22). So God is unchanging constant (Mal. 3:6; James 1:17). He is enveloped by Christ in the front and complemented by Holy Spirit at the rear. This illustrates how God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself (2Cor.5:19-21).
In born again, there is no male and female because he has new spirit and body of God and not of him. It annulled the need for the union of male and female with the soul at the beginning (Gal. 3:27-28). It was the period man lived by his spirit and lived in his own body for himself. But now, a man baptized into Christ ceased to live for himself but have put on Christ and lives by life of Christ for Him (Gal. 2:20). The spirit now liable to only God helps man to work out the salvation of his soul (Phil. 2:12). It means the soul is the man Jesus came to save (John 3:16). Now the soul which has believed Christ is being regenerated and renewed to the image of His glory (2Cor. 4:16). Thus the soul is the man who is known as a spirit because of his origin which is God; the Father of spirit (Num. 16:22). After salvation he lives by the spirit of Christ for Him but in his body pending the grant to him of glorious body of Christ. As the spirit stays connected to God the soul prospers and is one with God (3John 2). God executes any word spoken by man and by his breath (Num. 14:28), similar to how He treats His spoken Word and His Breath (Is. 55:11).
It is in the context of oneness that a body bond to a harlot is one body with her (1Cor. 6:15-17). This is the biblical meaning of fornication against the opinion of dictionary definition. It represents separation from first love such as God and flirting with godless source; like Adam did in Eden (Gen. 3:6-8) and Israel did too.
Celestial and terrestrial earth are in different realms of life, and have different characteristics (ref. fig.) in insert.
We are here to experience life without God which man chose in Eden and to get second chance to receive eternal life which God promised (1John 2:25).
Our risen Lord; the first born again from the dead is our example of the promise (Col. 1:18). The promise has been fulfilled in Him with glorious body made without hands (2Cor. 5:1) for all men ((1Pet. 1:3). Like risen Christ he could dissolve pass barrier, and appear and disappear (John 20:26). Every believer is on a race to attain the stature of born again man in Christ. To be born again is a total change of nature of man from the old to the new. It takes stages for a person to attain the stature of the fully born again in Christ – first the spirit is born again, next the soul and finally the body. Do you still think you are born again as a person, perfect in your soul and mortal body like resurrected Christ? Can you dissolve pass barrier, appear and disappear as proof? That is food for thought for you.
