I’m so glad to hear from you and I am thrilled that you loved the Alan Parker series. I love your articulate way of expressing the truths of the cross. Yes, God the Father did exhibit the mystery of His Eternal Cross in the historical temporal cross. We will never get beyond the cross operating in us as long as we are in these fallen bodies. Because we are forever dying to the pulls of this outer world, and rising to new and fresh manifestations of Christ as us.
The beauty is that our flesh is a precious part of manifesting Christ. Or I could say the only way the person of Christ is manifested on earth today. Every negative pull is only a calling card to faith. We are the temporal means for the 7 fold spirit operation. Our flesh realm manifest the first three Spirits (insatiable desire which is never satisfied)—the cross is Christ crucified in us—the cross thrust us into the last three Spirits which is Christ resurrected as us, and that springs us into a whole new dimension manifesting Christ and all His glories. In the rising, the Spirit swallows up the first three spirits (the negative) and Christ reigns as us.
II Cor. 4:10—“Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.”
Christ is dying and rising as us bringing life everywhere we go. “Death works in us life works in others.”
