The Return of Christ: Glorified Bodies

One of Exodus Internet Church’s missions is to edify the people of God in the last days. As human beings, the lens thru which we gaze out into the world is colored by the various responsibilities we are beholden to here in our life on earth. Whether that be jobs and careers, family life, friendships and relationships, there is always something that requires our immediate attention and efforts.

Yet as children of God we are called to look beyond that. Because we are inheritors of eternal life and the new birth. Life rendered onto us by the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of God. We are blessed to be in these times because the return of the Lord God is imminent; we will get to witness firsthand the second coming of Jesus Christ and live with Him as He rules the earth. We are living in the very times that saints throughout time and history have wondered about since the onset of the church of Christ.

The return of the Lord brings with it another glorious centerpiece promised to us by our God: the redemption of our bodies.

“And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope, we were saved.” – Romans 8:23-24

Many of you reading this have either received the new birth or are waiting for it. And for those who have it, you march on the narrow path of salvation strengthening your soul and exercising Godly knowledge to become more Christlike. And for those of you who wait, you chisel away at your soul thru counsel and edification so that you may better yourself in preparation for the second birth. We are grateful for this life that God has given us.

But there’s more to come. The redemption of our bodies is something we will only experience when Christ comes back and rewards us with them. However, we have some information available to us that allows us to glean some insight into what having those bodies will be like.

The Spiritual Forefathers: Adam and Eve

It has recently come to the attention of the ministry to peruse the ancient texts, meaning texts that were not added to the Word of God for various reasons. Two of these books are the first and second Books of Adam and Eve.
