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 2:11-12,3:1

 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."]

 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

 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."]

Romans 6:3-5

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 3 Do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? [To be baptized into Jesus Christ is the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The baptism of the Holy Spirit, Mat 3:11-12, is a baptism of unquenchable fire, which completely burns up all the remaining sin and evil desires (the chaff) in a purged man's heart (the threshing floor), preserving God's change to life of God in a man's heart, (wheat into the barn), leaving a cleansed, purified individual. This baptism occurs after a man has crucified his selfish, sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial. This baptism by fire, the baptism of death, is the one baptism needed: one Lord, one faith, one baptism. Eph 4:5.]

 4 Therefore we were buried with him by baptism into death; so as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. [Like the resurrection of Lazarus, after you undergo the baptism of death, the Lord calls you by name to "come forth" and be raised with Him into a newness of life in the kingdom, but to still walk the earth with Christ guiding your every word and deed. Burial, baptism into death, being raised with Him, and newness of life are not to be imagined, assumed, presumed, or thought to be imputed: Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Cor 5:17. From the Word of the Lord within: "You are raised to a new life, not just an imitation; He is one with us and ever-present. The new life is as radically different as a man who has lived underground his whole life, suddenly coming above ground to see the sun, the sky, the plants, the animals, the wind, the stars. "]

 5 For if we become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will certainly also be united in the likeness of his resurrection. [The Romans had died on the inward cross of self-denial, to be free of sin; and they are resurrected, (raised), with Christ to become an entirely new creature.]
