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."]

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."]
