I had an interesting thought this morning in my devotions. In the garden of Eden, human beings were one with God, but I think they did not have physical bodies until they fell. They were one Spirit with God, in transfigured, glory-light-bodies. When they fell in consciousness they became self-conscious rather than God-conscious, and they developed a fallen physical body of flesh with carnal minds instead of the Mind of God.
When Jesus came to reconcile us and restore our image and likeness of God, he filled all of earth, under the earth, the heavens and above the highest heavens with his ascended transfigured body, making human beings one in body and one in Spirit with God. It was the “new thing” of Isaiah (42:9, 43:19, 48:6-8) that we never knew about; a new thing created now and not known before.
Ephesians 4:4 says we are one body and one Spirit with God.
When the ascended Jesus sends Abba and Christ’s Spirit and Fire to indwell us, our physical body unites with God’s Spirit and a brand new creation is formed! A new creation: one body and one Spirit with God! A new creation that has never been known before is revealed!
Glorify God in your body with one Spirit! This is the church of God: these are they who washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb (Rev 7:14) and came to the wedding of the Lamb and his God (Rev 19:7). The ascended Bride (Jesus) became one again with God (Bridegroom) and we were all invited to the wedding feast! The Bride comes down from heaven out of God to live in our physical body, making us the wife of the Lamb, the bride with the Bride inside, one flesh with the Bride and one Spirit with God (Rev 21)!
We are one body and one Spirit with God! All Glory to God!
The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!” be one body and one Spirit with us!
