Colossians 2:12,3:1

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 12  Buried with him in the baptism [of death], you will be raised with him through your belief in the operation of God, who raised him from the dead.3 [This rising with Christ is not after the normal physical death of all men; it is the death of a seeker who has been crucified, who loses his life to save his life. Like the resurrection of Lazarus, after you undergo the baptism of death, the Lord calls you by name to "come forth." From the Word of the Lord within: "Christ is actually resurrected in every person that comes to Him and obeys Him repetitively. You have not experienced grace until you have been raised with Him. You are raised to a new life, not just an imitation; He is one with us and ever-present. With persistent and faithful obedience, you too will be raised."]

 1 If you will be risen with Christ, seek those things that are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God.1 [This rising with Christ is not after the normal physical death of all men; it is the death of a seeker who has been crucified, who loses his life to save his life. From the Word of the Lord within: "Christ is actually resurrected in every person that comes to Him and obeys Him repetitively. With persistent and faithful obedience, you too will be raised. You have not experienced grace until you have been raised with Him." This verse is universally translated as "you have been risen," (past tense), because the verse is in the Aorist prophetic tense, (explained in Colossians 1:1), a Greek prophetic tense of verbs used to describe a certain future event as having already occurred, which events are typically translated in other languages to a simple past tense.

Ephesians 2:6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 6 And has raised us up together [with Christ], and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.3 [This is to have experienced being translated into the kingdom of heaven, where you are with Christ in sight and consciousness. From the Word of the Lord within: "I work with the blind; but if you think you can see, and you are not with me in heaven, I will make you a laughingstock."]

John 5:25

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 25 Truly, truly, I say to you, 'The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear shall live. [There is no one-time resurrection of the dead for all men of all ages that Christianity teaches, for as Paul wrote: "And when we were (past tense) dead in our sins, He brought (past tense) us to life in union and fellowship with Christ; it is through grace that you are saved; And has raised (past tense) us up together [with Christ], and made (past tense) us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus." Eph 2:5-6. Paul and some of the Ephesians had already been resurrected from being dead in their sins.

Because of Adam, we all are dead in our sins, dead to the life of God, Gen 2:17,3:24, having been cut off from the tree of life. To pass from death to life, we first have to listen to the Holy Spirit and the word of the Lord within to hear and obey His many teachings and commands. Then with long persistence and patience in doing obedient works of repentance, we experience the baptism of fire and death, to then hear the Voice of the Lord like thunder over waters as we pass over from death to life and into the kingdom.]

Romans 6:13

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 13 Neither yield your members to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but yield yourselves to God, as those that are raised alive from the dead, and your members for instruments to be used for righteousness by God.3 [Because of Adam, we all are dead in our sins, dead to the life of God, Gen 2:17,3:24, having been cut off from the tree of life. When you have been delivered (freed) from the sins and evil in your heart, God will guide your thoughts, words, and works. We are then a fit instrument for his hand to show the world the love of God, to shake the nations, and to hold out the word of life. Walking under the Spirit's total control, we walk as Jesus walked, and we do works of righteousness as Jesus worked righteousness; then, and only then, are we righteous. Little children, let no man deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous. 1 John 3:7]

2 Corinthians 4:14

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 14 Knowing that he who raised up Jesus, shall also raise us up with Jesus , and [he] shall be present with you. [From the Word of the Lord within: "You have not experienced grace until you have been raised with Him. Christ is actually resurrected in every person that comes to Him and obeys Him repetitively. With persistent and faithful obedience, you too will be raised. You are raised to a new life, not just an imitation; He is one with us and ever-present. If you pay attention and obey, it results in union with God. He joins with our cleansed nature. We must become like Him to merge with Him. Once you are in union, it is permanent. There are very few people who, when they see what God is, would turn down union with him."]

Philippians 3:10-11

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 10 That I may know him, to experience the power of his resurrection, to share in his sufferings, and even be conformed to him in his death; [Because of Adam, we all are dead in our sins, dead to the life of God, Gen 2:17,3:24, having been cut off from the tree of life. Paul writes of experiencing the power of His resurrection. If you will reign with him, you must suffer with him; 2 Tim 2:12. if you will live with him, you must die with him; 2 Tim 2:11. and if you die with him, you must be buried with him, Rom 6:4. and buried with him in the true baptism, you will be raised with him. Col 2:12, Eph 2:6.]

 11 in what way to arrive into the resurrection from the dead. [After we have crucified our old man, we are raised with Christ as a new creature. From the Word of the Lord within: "Christ is actually resurrected in every person that comes to Him and obeys Him repetitively." Then it is no longer you who lives, but Christ who lives in you, Gal 2:20.]
