Christians may not agree with everything they hear in the YouTube video below, but we surely mustn’t deny bodily reality.
God created us as embodied beings, with limits. God became an embodied being, as the Second Person of the Trinity. God was raised and ascended to heaven as an embodied being. God will return as an embodied being. At which time God will put the bi-natured creation back in order. Which is to say, God will remarry heaven and earth, invisible with visible, soul with body, in an imperishable eschatological embrace.
Then the loving limit placed upon the Second Person of the Trinity, for the world’s sake, will end.
1 Cor 15:24-28 NRSV
Then comes the end, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father, after he has destroyed every ruler and every authority and power. 25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death. 27 For “God has put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when it says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is plain that this does not include the one who put all things in subjection under him. 28 When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to the one who put all things in subjection under him, so that God may be all in all.
Zechariah 14:8-9 NRSV
On that day living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea and half of them to the western sea; it shall continue in summer as in winter. 9 And YAHWEH will become king over all the earth; on that day YAHWEH will be one and his name one.
We dare not forget all of that. And the LOVING LIMITS God placed on each of us. If we ever learned it.
We must always tell what we see. Above all, and this is more difficult, we must always see what we see.Charles Pequy
From time to time on this blog, I quote the Bible. As I did in this post. If you are interested in a more in-depth exploration of the Christian Scriptures, I can think of no better Bible Study tool than Logos Bible Software.
