Colossians 1:13

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 13 Who has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of His dear son;1 [Translated is to be raised up together to sit with Christ in heaven. We know Paul was perfect, still walking the earth, but living in in the kingdom for he wrote: I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and "God...has raised us up together [with Christ], and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus," Eph 2:4,6; and "I charge you in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect angels," 1 Tim 5:21; and "we are speaking in Christ in the presence of God," 2 Cor 2:17. The Colossians were not in the kingdom, based on verse 23 below. See the Footnote below to read George Fox's account of his translation into the kingdom. From the Word of the Lord within: "You can live in heaven and still walk the earth." As George Fox ministered on the earth, he was translated to paradise; and then he lived in paradise. There is a guide to several other early Quakers' testimony of reaching the kingdom of God while on earth.]

 9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, in the kingdom, and patient endurance in Jesus Christ,3 was on the isle that is called Patmos, because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. [John, still on the earth, had been through tribulations; and he was in the kingdom. If any man wants to serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there my servant will also be. John 12:26. You live in heaven, but you are also on the earth serving the Lord. From the Word of the Lord within: "You can live in heaven and still walk the earth. I will come again to the elect; I will be a crown to lead and guide them." As George Fox ministered on the earth, he was translated to paradise; and then he lived in paradise.]
