“Freed us”: past tense is the present of we are truly FREE!!
“Made us a kingdom” another past tense present: the now kingdom of heaven on earth!!
“Made us…priests to his God and Father”: already carrying the presence of God!! (Revelation 1:5-6). Just wake up to the truth!! Become aware of the Life of God in you!!
Therefore, we are no longer “harlot” “slaves” in the kingdom of sin; no longer human beings in the likeness and image of Adam who stumbled and fell.
We are the image and likeness of God in Christ, Christ in you! We are spotless brides living in the kingdom of the Son; living in his consciousness, his life, his beingness; one body and one Spirit with God!! We are hidden with Christ in God!! “In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and YOU are in me, and I am in you” Christ in you is EVERYTHING of God in YOU!!!!!!!!
He LOVES us!!!!!!!! When he comes to you, guaranteed and promised and a sure thing, you will wail, sob, cry uncontrollably and it will be the greatest cry you have ever experienced!! (Rev 1:7) Those that pierced him and those that lived in 70 AD saw karma in action, evil returned for evil, good for good, the finished work of the cross, so that we could reap what we did not sow (John 4:37-38) and rise with the ascended Christ into his kingdom on earth as it is in heaven (John 12:32), beyond karma, to live and reign in Him in God in His kingdom on earth!! “Awake, O sleeper..and Christ will give you light” Ephesians 5:14
Those who still reject Jesus as the Christ and the finished work of the cross, will stumble and fall as they live in the kingdom of sin, ruled by satan and his minions: death, destruction, anger, pride, greed, lust, and envy. Only in the resurrected and ascended Christ can we live in his consciousness of perfect oneness with God: the Christ-consciousness: the awareness of Christ in you! “In that day you will KNOW that I am in my Father, and YOU are in me and I AM IN YOU” Christ in you!!
Christ in you is all the fullness of the Godhead dwelling bodily in YOU! This is the finished work of the cross; the past tense that is GOOD NEWS before all time, now and for ever. Amen. Hallelujah!!
“Now to him who is able to keep you from falling and to PRESENT YOU without blemish [a spotless bride] before the PRESENCE OF HIS GLORY with rejoicing, to the ONLY GOD, our Savior THROUGH JESUS Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, BEFORE ALL TIME and NOW and for ever. Amen” Jude 1:24-25
