The believer is being 'saved',
that is, growing spiritually.(a
away from the low consciousness habit and dominion of sin.(the
dominion of sin is the ordinary consciousness mind we all have and have
for a purpose, that of moving from it into higher consciousness, what we
are here for in the first place, developing the character needed on this
stage called the world.in
order to move from here and it starts
right away by using a gift
God has provided for you to massively prosper in all areas of your life).and
into the blessings of life:.Matthew
6:33; Romans 6:14; Philippians
2:13; Romans 8:2; Galatians
2:19,20; 2Corinthians 3:18.
As far as God the Father is concerned,
sin is no longer an issue, in fact,
never was, thanks to Christ.
The believer is being saved in the sense of daily development of character.(or,
is being saved continuously, a process of growing
13:11; Hebrews 10:36; 1Peter
1:5; 1John 3:2.
is by grace through faith, is a free gift and wholly without works.(but
after receiving that spiritual gift, one does good works so he or she can
get a high reward):.Romans
3:27,28; 4:2-8; 6:23;
2:8. The divine order is,.first
salvation, then works:.Ephesians
2:9,10; Titus 3:5-8."
does Paul mean."awake
to righteousness"? and why does he say."sin
not".if all sin
is now gone? What does it mean here."I
speak this to your shame"?
Part of what forms
a primary preposition
indicating a point of origin from whence.motion
proceeds regarding the other part of what translators have determined the
English word equivalent of this original word combination be rendered."awake".
With that in mind we can
now consider the original in that awaking to righteousness means that righteousness
comes from an attitude that involves being sober,
calm, watchful, collected in spirit.(in
'keeping it all together').and
that is, realizing that what Christ came to reveal to humanity.(God's
nature of love, the
higher consciousness we can all attain).is
the centre of your life and that you carry with you as part of you, an
awareness of what righteousness means.
The Corinthian church way
back then that Paul was sending this letter to, lived lives that showed
that the reality of the resurrection and entering into the kingdom of God.(the
higher consciousness realm).was
second place in their lives. They placed too much emphasis on the physical
life, run by their ego concerns, leaving off the spiritual. So, Paul tells
not", meaning don't go back to the vomit
you came from:.Proverbs
26:11 "As a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool returns to his folly.".Though
all sin has been done away doesn't
mean one should bring all the hurts of it back into his life by keeping
on missing the mark of growing in higher consciousness.
"I speak this to your shame".means
Paul wanted them to learn that now that they have been made
free from sin, they should grow
in the knowledge of Creator-God and that it would be shameful

book in the Bible was written to convey.
was the hope that the."eye
did not see"?
It was the
grace of God that gave them that hope:.1Corinthians
Paul mean here an actual body or a sort of 'fluffy' spirit?
The spirit body
resurrected Christians have is an actual body as Paul is emphasizing here.
Our individual minds need to be resurrected to our spirit sustaining body,
often call our souls. We don't
even know we have a soul, so it 'dies' for lack of attention.
will 'look like' Creator-God which is spirit, spirit of high consciousness,
our heavenly Father, he who enabled us to be equal
how much God loves to share. He's given us all possible, but we mostly
don't even know this, don't see it and wouldn't know how to get it, unless
it's our time to be now
The word spirit in the Bible
is ruwach, a Hebrew word in the Old Testament and a Greek word in the New
Testament. They both mean the wind, breath, mind, spirit, the intangibles.
Spirit is consciousness, pneuma, air. There is no life without consciousness.
We need consciousness to taste, see, smell, etc. We need to be conscious
of what we are touching. Without the spirit nothing can be known:.John

New Testament Notes:."Not
a mere spirit, for then it would not be a body. It will be for us like
it was for Emmanuel after His resurrection, in these ways:.Luke
The word spiritual "pneumatikon".(in
stands opposed to the word natural, or animal. It will not be a body that
is subject to the laws of the vital functions, or organized or sustained
in that way. It will still be a "body".("swma").but
it will have so far the nature of spirit as to be without the vital functions
which here control the body. This is all that the word here means. It does
not mean refined, sublimated, or transcendental; it does not mean that
it will be without shape or form; it does not mean that it will not be
properly a body. The idea of Paul seems to be this: "We conceive of soul
or spirit as not subject to the laws of vital or animal agency. It is independent
of them. It is not sustained or nourished by the functions of the animal
organization. It has an economy
of its own; living without nourishment.(but
able to enjoy food if desired);
not subject to decay; not liable to sickness, pain, or death. So will be
the body in the resurrection. It will not be subject to the laws of the
