|2 Corinthians 4:14|
14 Knowing that he who raised up the Lord Jesus, shall raise us up also by Jesus, and shall present us with you [in his presence].
11 In whom you are 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 baptism, in which also you are risen with him through faith of the operation of God, who has raised him from the dead.3
1 If then you are risen with Christ, seek those things that are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God.1
|Ephesians 2:5-6 |
5 And when we were dead in our sins, He brought us to life in union and fellowship with Christ;2 it is through grace that you are saved; [but you have not been saved by grace until you have been brought to life in union and fellowship with Christ, having been raised up together with Christ into heaven. From the Word of the Lord within: "Saved by grace; but what about the rest of that chapter? You have not experienced grace until you have been raised with Him."]
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.]
