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."]

Colossians 2:11-12

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 11 In whom you also will be circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision performed by Christ,2 [Christ is the anointing, which teaches you all things and which circumcises your heart, cutting off the foreskin of sin and selfishness to become an inward Jew, inwardly circumcised.]

 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."]

Colossians 3:1

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 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 2:5-6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 And when we were dead in our sins, He brought us to life in union and fellowship with Christ;2 it is through grace that you are saved; [but you have not been saved by grace until you have been brought to life in union and fellowship with Christ, having been raised up together with Christ into heaven. From the Word of the Lord within: "Saved by grace; but what about the rest of that chapter? You have not experienced grace until you have been raised with Him. Salvation occurs when you are one with Christ and God. Once you are in union, it is permanent." Until brought to union, 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.]

 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."]
