THE CRUCIFIXION OF CHRIST©
(One Crucifixion, Or Two?)
THIS MESSAGE IS THE TRANSCRIPT OF A LIVING EPISTLES' MEETING. PUNCTUATION AND MINOR GRAMMATICAL CHANGES HAVE BEEN ADDED FOR THE PURPOSE OF CLARITY.
17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it
be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. (KJV)
THERE IS NO MALE OR FEMALE IN CHRIST JESUS (Gal. 3:28). Accordingly, all textual references to MALE and FEMALE point to spiritual principles, and the words MAN and MEN, as well as the pronouns, HE, HIS and HIM, include, WOMAN, WOMEN, SHE and HER.
CHRIST JESUS is the only spiritual male. Accordingly, all powers and principalities other than Christ Jesus are identified as female IN RELATION TO HIM.
The powers and principalities which have incarnated this fallen world (2 Cor. 4:4) are male IN RELATION TO FALLEN MANKIND, and female IN RELATION TO CHRIST JESUS.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32)
THE CRUCIFIXION OF CHRIST©
(One Crucifixion, Or Two?)
Christ Jesus, the spiritual man within Jesus of Nazareth, married the soul (personality) of Jesus of Nazareth, and Jesus of Nazareth acquired all of the righteousness of Christ Jesus, the Son of God.
This spiritual exchange empowered Jesus to unravel His soul from the sin nature that He inherited from Mary, and separate, fully alive, from the physical body that, that sin nature generated. The whole spiritual man (Christ Jesus and the soul (personality) called Jesus) exited the physical sack that Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of Man, lived in, and the sack (physical body) collapsed.
The physical body is a reflection of the spiritual man within, so we see a dead, physical body only when the spirit that is woven together, and trapped within that physical body, dies with it.
It is interesting to note that, according to the Scripture, Joseph of Arimathaea took the body of Jesus... (Jn 19:38), but, we cannot accurately call that empty sack a corpse. Jesusí Spirit could not have been in that dead body, because Jesusí physical body disappeared (Lk 24:3), and Jesusí living, spiritual body appeared in the tomb next to Christ (Lk 24:4), the spiritual man that gave Him life.
The two, Christ, the spiritual man (the Son of God), and Jesus, the saved soul of the mortal man, Jesus (the Son of Man), would eventually congeal into one New Spiritual Man (Eph 2:15), the crucified (married) (Gal 2:20), Christ Jesus, who ascended to the spiritual level of the Fatherís authority (Jn 20:17).
Mary Magdelene, one of Jesusí disciples, knew that Jesus, in His glorified (saved) state, would do the same thing for His disciples that Christ (the resurrected Adam) did for Him. Mary knew that the glorified Jesus would attach Himself to each of His disciples in the form of a new, righteous mind, which would eventually marry (save) their soul (personality).
Jesus, the soul man that Adam (who was regenerated within Jesus) saved, survived the separation from His physical body and the sin nature (Carnal Mind) that formed it, but Jesus had not yet fully merged with Christ, the spiritual man who gave Him life by marrying Him. So, the saved Jesus said to Mary, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father (Jn 20:17).
Jesus was telling Mary that He could not impart the Mind of Christ to her at that time, because the process of regeneration for the disciples would begin only after the saved personality of the man, Jesus, was fully merged with Christ, the spiritual man that gave Him life, and the two men had become one New Man (Eph 2:15).
The saved personality of the man, Jesus, then ascended to a higher spiritual place than any Name of God (Eph 1:21, Phil 2:9) that had previously interacted with mankind, including the Name of Jehovah.
This great truth does not blaspheme or reject the great God, Jehovah, because THE GLORIFIED JESUS CHRIST
JEHOVAH, RAISED TO A HIGHER POWER!
The glorified Jesus is the only man, born of a woman, who ever attained to Righteous Immortality(1 Tim 6:16) and, as such, has the authority to marry mankind (Rev 19:9), and share His immortality with us (1 Jn 3:2).
As I have been teaching here for years, brethren, as hard as it is to hear, when somebody who is pregnant with Christ dies before the indwelling Christ within them is mature enough to sustain their physical life, that indwelling Christ dies along with the physical body. (See, also, p 13, 1st full para.)
How can Christ die, you ask? The answer is that the regenerated young Christ within the individual is not the glorified Jesus Christ. He is one of the seeds, one of the offspring, of the glorified Jesus Christ, which, should the body die before the young Christ is mature enough to prevent physical death, dies along with the man that He is gestating in.
[Question]If Jesus exited from this sack, which is the physical body, before He died, and was liberated from it, was He liberated from that body?
[Pastor Vitale says:] Yes
[Question] If so, then, what would be the purpose of raising that body from the dead three days later?
[Pastor Vitale says:] The body did not rise, it disappeared (Lk 24:3). The saved personality of Jesus of Nazareth that separated from Jesusí physical body, appeared to Mary Magdelene three days later.
There are three parts to the spiritual anatomy of mortal man: (1) the human spirit, the life of the flesh, (2) the human soul, the personality, and (3) the Carnal Mind which is, itself, in three parts: (a) Cain, the conscious part of the Carnal Mind,
(b) Leviathan, the subconscious part of the Carnal Mind, and c) Satan, the unconscious part of the Carnal Mind. So, we see that the Carnal Mind is the third part of mortal man.
Satan and Leviathan, the unconscious and subconscious parts of the Carnal Mind, are mortal manís ungodly spiritual side
Mankind also has a fourth side, which is withered in mortal man. Abel, Cainís symbiotic twin, is the root system of Adam, Godís spiritual life within mankind. Abel is mortal manís potential to regenerate Adam, mankindís Godly spiritual side.
Gabriel, the Angel of God, touched the withered Abel within the ovum of Maryís physical body that was born as Jesus of Nazareth, and Adam was regenerated within that fetus.
Christ is the Greek word that means anointing. Christ is the anointed one (the regenerated Adam, the Son of God), that lived on the inside of Jesus of Nazareth, a mortal man, born of a human woman.
Christ (the regenerated Adam), preserved (rescued, saved) the personality (soul) of the man, Jesus (Rom 1:4). The two (Jesus and Christ (the regenerated Adam within the man, Jesus)), separated from the physical body of Jesus of Nazareth (Acts 10:14, 1 Cor 15:12), the mortal prison house that they were woven together with in this fallen world (which is hell), and survived that separation! Jesus and Christ (the regenerated Adam) appeared in spiritual bodies of light. continued to exist without a physical body.1
It is widely believed in Christian circles that the human soul (mortal personality) survives physical death, but this is not true.
First of all, we must understand that there is an immortal soul, which Jesus calls our worm that dieth not (Mk 9:46), and a mortal soul (Rom 8:11), which is the personality. Paulís reference to a mortal soul, witnesses to the existence of an immortal soul.
There is an immortal root (worm) in mortal man, that the human soul (mortal personality) is formed around. The personality that we know as Elijah, for example, did not reincarnate, but the spiritual root, or immortal soul, or worm (as Jesus puts it) (Mk 9:46) of Elijah, reincarnated with a new personality (human, mortal soul) and a new (different physical body) (Matt 11:14).
The belief that the personality (human, mortal soul) survives separation from the physical body, is derived from Egyptian mystery religion, as is the Christian and Kabbalistic belief that the physical body which the human, mortal soul (personality) lived in, will be resurrected in its original form.
Wherefore, the truth of Scripture celebrates the fact that the mortal personality of Jesus of Nazareth was saved from the disintegration of the human soul (mortal personality) that occurs should the mortal soul (human personality) succeed in escaping from the physical body, which is its prison house, either before after the physical body dies.
The great victory that Jesus took over death and the grave (1 Cor 15:55), (another name for the physical body) (Lk 11:44), is that Jesusí mortal personality (human soul) continued to exist after it separated from Jesusí physical body, the vehicle (prison house) that housed Jesusí human soul (mortal personality) in this fallen, mortal world.
The powers and principalities that generated Jesusí physical body (grave) (Matt 23:27) could not prevent the survival of Jesusí saved personality (mortal human soul) after it separated from Jesus physical body. Nor could they prevent the disintegration of Jesusí physical body after Jesusí saved soul separated from it, which disintegration is the sure sign that Jesusí departed personality (mortal human soul) survived the separation.
The personality of Jesus separated from that Physical Body (grave), and did not disintegrate. He is alive today!
The teaching that the mortal personality (human soul) of Jesus of Nazareth died when His physical body was crucified and then rose again only after physical death, has resulted in the erroneous belief that we, who are His offspring, must also experience physical death in order to enter into eternal life.
But the truth is that both resurrection and eternal life are in the flesh. The substitutionary work of Christ Jesus on behalf of humanity, resurrects Adam (Christ), the Son of God, in the individual, who then swallows up the personalityís fallen nature (Carnal Mind) (Rom 8:6), which event imparts the righteousnessof the glorified Christ Jesus to that mortal man.
Christ Jesus is the One New Man that was born of the twain (Eph 2:15), i.e., Christ (Adam, who was regenerated out of Abel, Adamís withered root system within the mortal man, Jesus), and the personality (human soul) known as Jesus of Nazareth, who Christ rescued from hell and death (this world system).
Gen 1:5 says, And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night, and the evening and the morning were the first day. This means that the light mixed with the darkness, and now there are both light and darkness in each day
The Greek word translated, third, can also be translated, third part, and the phrase, the third day can be translated the third part of the day,
Mortal men (both physical males and physical females) are incomplete and, from a spiritual point of view, are not real men. We are not even half a man. Each of us is only a fragment of that one fallen, spiritual man and, therefore, spiritually female.
The Scribes and Pharisees, on the other hand, were considered to be whole, or completed, men, because of their spiritual marriage to Jehovah, and they were also considered to be the Day, because Jehovah had commissioned them to reveal the Light of His Glory the World.
AND SINCE DEATH HAS NO POWER OVER A RIGHTEOUS MAN (1 Tim 1:9), the mortal man (human soul/personality) whose sin nature (Carnal Mind) has been swallowed up by the regenerated (Matt 19:28) righteous Adam (Christ Jesus), DOES NOT HAVE TO DIE, because that personality (human, mortal soul) has entered into the eternal age through the regeneration of Adam, marriage to Christ Jesus (Rev 19:7) (the personal saviour of the personality (mortal human soul)), and.the death of the Carnal Mind that the personality (mortal human soul) was married to because of Adamís sin (Rom 5:14).
I suggest to you my dear brethren, that when the Greek New Testament talks about wicked men killing Jesus, and Jesus rising on the third day, the true and spiritual intention of the verse, is to say that the Carnal Mind (the third part of mortal man) of the Scribes and Pharisees (wicked men) rose up to kill Jesus.
1 Cor. 15:4 says that Christ rose on the third day, but that Scripture is talking about Abel, the dead Christ, within the man Jesus. (See, pp 9) It is not talking about the man, Jesus.
[Question]] Also, you say that if the spirit is trapped in the body when the body dies, then the spirit dies also. So are you saying here that the spirit does not go on? That it dies? That it does not exist somewhere out side of the body? Or that it does not go into another incarnation?
[Pastor Vitale says:] The human spirit, which is the breath of life within the mortal individual, dies with the physical body. Our dead spiritual foundation (Cain and Abel, also called the Fiery Serpent), the spiritual residue of the Breath of God within mortal man, goes on. The Fiery Serpent is the immortal worm (Is 41:14, Mk 9:44) that Jesus talks about.
[Question] I thought in the past you said that the spirit has an existence and multiple incarnations in Christ Jesus, did I misunderstand you on that?
[Pastor Vitale says:] I may have used the word spirit in this context in the past, without explaining the difference between the human spirit, the life of the flesh that is in our mortal blood, and Abel, the residue of the Breath of God that was breathed into Adam.
Our spiritual worm (Mk 9:24), our immortal foundation, goes on. (See,Note # 1, pp 4-6) The seed of the glorified Jesus Christ can graft to a manís spiritual worm (mortal foundation), regenerate the dead Adam, and mature him into a living, spiritual man, the Son of Christ Jesus.
[Question] Also, I thought you said more recently that some spirits go to Abraham's bosom, and do not have to incarnate again.
[Pastor Vitale says:] When the spirit within a physical body (or a spiritual worm, or an immortal foundation), within a mortal man cleaves to Christ during that manís lifetime, and then the man dies, that spirit (or spiritual worm, or immortal foundation) ascends to Abraham's bosom, where it rests until it is instructed to reincarnate to accomplish the purposes of the Lord Jesus.
[Question] And what is Abraham's bosom?
[Pastor Vitale says:] Abrahamís bosom is the spiritual place where the spiritual root (or spiritual worm, or immortal foundation) of a man is protected from the process of reincarnation, which Satan, the enforcer of Jehovahís Righteous Sowing and Reaping Judgment (Gal 6:7) oversees.
DISCUSSION OF 1 COR. 13:3-5
1 Cor 15:3-5
3, For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4, And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
5, And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: KJV
I.The Christ (THE MAN, JESUS) v. Christ (THE RESURRECTED ADAM).
The article, the, does not appear before the word Christ, indicating that the Scripture is speaking about Christ (Adam who was slain by the Serpent that incarnated as the Carnal Mind .of mortal man), not the mortal man (personality), Jesus, who became the Christ when Adam (who was regenerated within Jesus), subjected the Carnal Mind that Jesus inherited from Mary. Abel, is the dead Adamís root system in mortal man.
[Adam was still] righteous in the age across from our [present] sin[ful state of being, and then Adam] died [because of sin; but Adam rose from the dead when he was regenerated as] Christ [within the man, Jesus] (See, LEM Message # 186, Parts 3 & 5.)
Christ (Adam within the man, Jesus) rose from the dead, and the man, Jesus, The Christ, arose out of the death of His physical body, at two different times (Rom 8:11). (See, Message # 186, Parts 8 & 9.)
IV. Crucifixion (a) Killed THE Carnal Mind (b) Did Not Kill Christ (The Resurrected Adam)
(See, Romans 6:6; Gal. 2:20.)
Jesus said, no man taketh my life -- that is, his human life which he inherited from the seed of David through Mary (Rom. 1:3). This means that even if wicked men drained all of the blood out of the Physical Body of the man, Jesus, Christ (the regenerated Adam) within the man, Jesus, could have sustained the life of the flesh of the man, Jesus, indefinitely.
This being the case, then, the man, Jesus, was not subject to the law of this world system which says that a man's soul (mortal personality) cannot separate from his Physical Body until that Physical Body dies.
How, then, could wicked, human men, have killed Christ (the regenerated Adam) within the man, Jesus? If crucifying Jesusí Physical Body, only killed the Physical Body of Jesus because Jesus willfully gave up the Ghost (John 10:17-18), or because Jesus breathed Himself out of the Physical body before it died -- if wicked men really had no power to kill Jesusí Physical body without Jesusí cooperation -how, then, could they have killed Christ (Adam), the regenerated spiritual man that preserved (saved) the mortal personality (human soul) of Jesus of Nazareth?
The death of the Mind is intimately related to separation from the Physical Body, which is merely a container for, and has no existence apart from, the mortal soul (personality).
The Carnal Mind is the husband of the dead human
soul (personality) that separates from the Physical Body after the mortal soul (personality) dies to this existence, which is called Hell.
The Carnal Mind and fallen soul (personality) are dead because of sin (2 Cor. 5:14, Rom. 8:10, so fallen Adam needs a Physical Body to sustain his existence in this world. But the mature Christ (Adam) regenerated within the man, Jesus, is alive because of righteousness (Rom. 6:13), so He can exist in this material world without a Physical Body
The material atoms that form the image of the Physical Body are attracted by the spiritual man, who is the sun (Mal 4:2) at the center of the mortal manís spiritual universe.
When the Physical body dies, the living, spiritual man separates from the Carnal Mind that forms the Physical body, and from the dead soul (mortal personality) that the Carnal mind is married to, Then the Physical body returns to spiritual dust (Gen. 3:19), and disappears.
. The saved Jesus and Christ (regenerated Adam) (Eph 2:15) separated from the Physical body that was formed by the Carnal Mind that Jesus inherited from Mary, and ascended into a higher world, where they attracted the spiritual atoms that form a glorious Spiritual Body. The Physical body of the man, Jesus, that was left behind died, dissolved and disappeared.
The Physical body can be likened to the cocoon that a butterfly leaves behind. The carcass (corpse) that survives the death of a mortal man is a witness that an unrighteous man died to this world system.
The dissolution and disappearance of the dead Physical Body of someone believed to have died, is proof that a living, righteous man departed from this world system.
Moses died according to the Word of the Lord (Deut 34:5) (which means that the Powers of this world system did not kill him), and his body was never found (Deut 34:6). Neither was the body of Elijah (who ascended into Heaven in a chariot of fire) ever found (2 King 2:17).
But the death and resurrection of Jesus, the Christ, is the foundational belief of Christianity! How can you say that Jesus didnít die?
The mortal man, Jesus, the Son of Man, died to the Carnal Mind (which is called death because it is an expression of this dead world system, called hell (Rom 6:3, 8:6)), that He received from Mary.
Jesus separated from that Carnal Mind of death (which generated the Physical body that bound Him to this hellish world), rose out of that Physical body of death (Rom 7:24), and ascended to a higher world (Eph 4:8), where He now sits at the right hand of the Father (Mk 16:19).
The Spiritual Body of light becomes an undergarment when a glorified spiritual man appears in this world, so the glorified Jesus Christ is appearing in the physical bodies of His sons to minister to His people (Acts 9:3-5).
Who Killed The Christ?
So, if Christ died on the cross, as we are told, who killed Him? Fallen men can only kill the Physical body (Matt. 10:28), and the Physical Body of a fallen man can only die because his soul is already dead. Even if Christ (regenerated Adam), who was alive in the man, Jesus, had agreed that wicked men should kill the mortal soul (Jesus) that Christ was married to -- which was saved (alive) because it was joined to Christ (regenerated Adam) -- how would fallen human men kill a soul that was alive because it was joined to the living Christ (regenerated Adam)?
That's the whole point! Fallen man cannot kill a soul that is alive because it is married to Christ (regenerated Adam)
Jesusí soul (mortal personality) was saved when He married the living Christ (Adam) that was regenerated within Him. So Jesus was alive and sinless (dead to the sin nature of the Carnal Mind), when wicked men tried to kill Christ (Adam)
that was regenerated within Him, by crucifying Jesusí Physical Body.
The very fact that Christ (Adam) who was regenerated within Jesusí mortal soul (personality) didn't die when Jesusí Physical body died, is the ultimate proof that the personality (mortal soul) of the man, Jesus of Nazareth, was without sin at the time of the crucifixion, and that the mortal man, Jesus, had become Jesus, the Christ, the saved mortal soul (personality) who was the express image of His Father, Adam, the Son of God (Lk 3:38). (See, also, p 3, 1st full para.)
V. THIRD - THIRD PART OF -
See, 2nd Response of Pastor Vitale on p 3
VI.THE DAY -Can mean a civil day which includes both day and night:
. . . . [The immature Adam who was] Christ in the age across from our sin[ful state of being], died in the spiritual age before this physical age] . . . . and that [the immature Adam, who was the] Christ [of that age] was buried underneath the [spiritual] Earth of the Carnal Mind [which acquired and married ] the fallen soul [personalities of this divided age],;and that [Mature Adam, who was] Christ [in the previous age], arose out of [Abel, Adamís dead root system, that was woven together with] the Carnal Mind of [Jesus], a fallen (mortal) man who received Light [and was made perfect when Christ (the regenerated Adam) married Jesusí mortal personality, and became Jesusí renewed, spiritual Mind]. (Alternate Translation, 1 Cor. 15:3-4 [Message #
186, Part 9].)
Adam, the immature Christ of the previous age was formed with the reproductive ability to produce a many-membered man in a visible world. The seed of Adamís many-membered offspring was within the righteous, but immature, Adam when He fell under the influence of the Serpent and died; and Adam, that young Christ was joined with chains of darkness (2 Pet 2:4, Jude 6) to the Carnal Mind that the Serpent birthed into this illegal, spiritually female world that she formed.
Jesus inherited a Carnal Mind from Mary, and subjected that Carnal Mind to the Christ Mind (regenerated Adam) within Himself (Rom 1:4).
The immature Mind of Christ is under the dominion of the Carnal Mind in a fallen (mortal) man, until He overcomes Satan.
The young Christ of the previous age, who died when righteous Adam died, was released from His forced union with the Carnal Mind when John baptized Jesus in the Jordan, which event buried the immature Mind of Christ within the man, Jesus under the spiritual waters of baptism (Rom 6:3) (with the rest of the Carnal Mind that Jesus inherited from Mary (See, Message # 170)).
After that, the regenerated (Matt 19:28) young Christ nailed (Gal 2:20) Himself to the weakened Carnal Mind within the man, Jesus of Nazareth (Rom 1:4), and this is how Christ
(Adam) revived (Rom 14:9) and the Carnal Mind died, which event is the reversal of Adamís experience, as revealed through Paul in Rom 7:9:
I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. KJV
The account of the death and resurrection of Christ (the regenerated Adam) in 1 Cor. 15:3-4 is speaking about the young Christ within the man, Jesus. It is not speaking about the man, Jesus of Nazareth, who was Christ (regenerated Adam) in the days of His flesh. The Scripture, therefore, does not mention the crucifixion of the man, Jesus, because the crucifixion of the man, Jesus, has nothing to do with the death and resurrection, in this age, of the immature Adam, the Christ of the previous age, who died when He agreed with the Mind of the Serpent.
If Christ (regenerated Adam) within the man, Jesus, had not already risen from the dead when the Physical Body of the man, Jesus, was crucified, Christ, the spiritual man, and Jesus, the soul man (mortal personality) would not have survived the separation from Jesusí Physical Body, because the Physical Body is bound to, and a part of, this realm of death!
Why? Because the sin nature must be dead before the mortal soul (personality) can enter into the Immortality of
Alternate Translation, Rom 14:9, And this is the reason that [Abel, the dead root system of Adam, that was] Christ [in the past age], who was lying dead [under Cain (the Carnal Mind)], revived: That He should be the supreme authority over both the [people] living [out of their Christ Mind] and the [people existing through their] dead [Carnal
Righteousness, and the risen Christ (regenerated Adam) buries the sin nature (Carnal Mind) (Rom 6:4).
By the time we get to verse 5, Christ (regenerated Adam) had risen within the man, Jesus, and suffocated the Carnal Mind that Jesus inherited from Mary; and Jesus, the soul man that Christ (the regenerated Adam) saved, had separated from His Physical Body of death and ascended out of this world, which is hell. The two then became One New Man (Eph. 2:15; Rev. 3:14), the ascended Christ Jesus, so the Scripture says, And that he [the One New Man] was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve
Tribulation Kills the Carnal Mind
The procedure that results in the death of the Carnal Mind is called the Tribulation. The ultimate end of Tribulation, where Christ pierces through the Carnal Mind and actually kills it, is called the Crucifixion of Christ. The problem is that the mortal soul (personality) is attached to the Carnal Mind, and separation results in the death of the mortal soul (personality), as well as the Carnal Mind (and the Physical Body, which is an expression of the mortal personality). The Carnal Mind is a tree that is growing in us. It is a part of us. When Christ (the regenerated Adam) kills our Carnal Mind, we, the mortalsoul
There is an immortality of unrighteousness(Jn. 5:29, Acts 24:15):
John 5:29, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation KJV
Acts 24:15.And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust. KJV
(personality) experience the pain.
We did a very deep Scriptural study on the Name, Christ, in the Greek Interlinear Text which resulted in a twelve-part series on the subject. We found out from this study that when the definite article the appears in the Greek before the word Christ, when the Greek says the Christ, it is speaking about the man, Jesus of Nazareth, who was The Christ, but the word is almost never translated that way.
There are other Scriptures where there is no definite (the) or indefinite (a) article, before the word Christ. We found out that when the Scripture uses the word Christ without an article before it, the text is speaking about Christ (regenerated Adam) which was in the man, Jesus of Nazareth, who was The Christ. The reason that Jesus of Nazareth could legally call himself Jesus, The Christ, was that the Christ (without the article), was born in the personality (mortal soul) of the man, Jesus of Nazareth, fully matured in Him, and took dominion over Jesusí Carnal Mind, to the point that the only mind ruling in that human vessel (who was born of the woman Mary), the only mind functioning in it, was Christ. Therefore the man, Jesus of Nazareth, could legally call Himself Jesus, the Christ.
There is a significant difference between The Christ (Jesus of Nazareth, who was The Christ) and Christ, the spiritual man and spiritual mind that was born in the man, Jesus. Now, the man, Jesus of Nazareth, cannot get inside of other human beings, but that spiritual man (regenerated Adam) and His spiritual Mind that was in Jesus of Nazareth, that glorious Mind that made Jesus God in the flesh, is capable of being born in all of mortal humanity, and that is exactly what is happening in this hour.
CrucifixionThe Crucifixion Of Jesus Of Nazareth
There were two crucifixions. The physical Body of the man, Jesus, who was The Christ, was crucified. We saw Jesusí Physical Body hanging on the cross. Nails were driven through that Physical Body, and it died, but Jesus, the soul man, and Christ (regenerated Adam), the spiritual man that saved Jesusí personality (mortal soul), acquired glorified spiritual bodies.
A word study in the Greek fails to reveal any Scripture that says the Son of God is about to be offered up. Jesus always said that the Son of Man was about to be offered up, or that the Son of Man was about to be lifted up, or the Son of Man was about to be crucified.
Jesusí humanity was crucified, brethren. Jesusí Physical Body was crucified, and when the Physical Body dies, the soul (personality) and the Mind of the Flesh, the Carnal Mind, die with it. But the Mind that was in the man, Jesus of Nazareth, who is called Christ, the Son of the Living God, the very Mind whose presence in the man, Jesus, gave Him the legal right to call Himself Jesus, The Christ, that glorious MIND did not die when Jesusí Physical Body was crucified.
You cannot kill a Righteous Mind by crucifying the Physical Body that it is attached to, brethren. How do you kill a Righteous Mind? Just stop a minute and think. You cannot kill aRighteous Mind by crucifying the Physical Body that it is attached to. The wicked men that crucified the Physical Body of the man, Jesus, who was The Christ, only had the power to crucify Jesusí physical flesh. Now, when Jesusí Physical Body died, the soul (personality) that Jesus was born with, and the Carnal Mind that He received from Mary, should have died also.
Brethren, if you put a knife in my heart, my soul (personality) and my flesh mind will die along with my Physical Body. But that Righteous Mind that was in the man, Jesus, the Mind that was the Son of the Living God, did not die when the Physical Body that it was attached to died.
That Righteous Mind named Christ (regenerated Adam), which was in the man, Jesus of Nazareth, that justified (made righteous) the mortal soul (personality) of the man, Jesus, survived the death of Jesusí Physical Body (that it was attached to); and when the Living Christ separated from Jesusí dead Physical Body, the mortal soul (personality) of the man, Jesus of Nazareth, which was joined to (Christ the Righteous Mind that is the Son of God) through spiritual marriage, arose out of Jesusí dead, Physical Body with Him.
Christ (regenerated Adam), who could not be killed by wicked men, preserved (saved) the mortal soul (personality) of the man, Jesus, His spiritual wife. And, so, Jesusí mortal soul (personality) survived the separation from the Physical Body that had sustained Jesusí existence from the time He was born as a mortal babe, with the Holy Spirit within Him. That is the crucifixion of the man, Jesus.
The Crucifixion Of Christ
Now, there is a second crucifixion in the Scripture, the crucifixion of Christ. Paul said, I am crucified to the world, yet I live, I did not die, I was crucified but I did not die. The crucifixion of Christ (regenerated Adam), not of the man,Jesus, The Christ, but the crucifixion of Christ, that Righteous Mind that could not be killed when the flesh of the man, Jesus, was crucified, is the joining of that glorious Mind, the Son of the Living God, to the Carnal Mind that Jesus received from Mary.
The Christ Mind within the man, Jesus, penetrated the Carnal Mind that Jesus received from Mary, so completely, that the Carnal Mind that Jesus received from Mary, died. It is a great mystery, but the Scripture calls this death of the Carnal Mind, the Crucifixion Of [the Carnal Mind by] Christ
I am crucified to the world, Paul said. I am Christ, because the Christ Mind within me was crucified to the spiritual world within me, which is the Carnal Mind.
Christ (regenerated Adam) is typified in the Scripture as a sword, in other instances as a needle, and in yet other instances, as a nail. The spiritually male Christ (regenerated Adam) penetrated and crucified the female Carnal Mind that Jesus inherited from Mary, after the seed of David.
The whole spiritual man, Christ, the Righteous male Mind, and the mortal soul (personality) of the man, Jesus, arose out of the dead Physical Body of Jesus of Nazareth. The man, Jesus, would no longer be a Righteous Mind of Christ, a Physical Body, a mortal soul (personality), and a Carnal Mind. The mortal soul (personality) and the residue (spirit) of the Carnal Mind that Jesus received from Mary, which was now under the dominion of Christ (the regenerated Adam, would soon completely blend together to become One New spiritual man called Christ Jesus, the only Mediator between God and man (1 Tim 2:5).
I could take two kinds of marbles, put them in a glass and shake them up, and still have marbles. But when you make a cake, for example, you take butter, sugar, flour, and milk and blend them together, mingle them so completely that you can no longer recognize the butter, or the flour, or the sugar, because you have a new substance, a cake batter.
The soul man, Jesus of Nazareth, born of Mary, no longer exists. The soul (personality) of the man Jesus of Nazareth, separated from the Carnal Mind that He received from Mary, and from His Physical Body, and is now a glorified spiritual man, which can save the many members of fallen adam by entering into, and attaching Himself to them.
The man, Jesus of Nazareth, was limited to His fallen Physical Body, but Jesus gave up His soul life and died to His existence as Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Mary and Joseph, and to His existence as Jesus, the Christ. Jesus was born into a new, spiritual form, which can enter into the many members of fallen adam, and impregnate them with the spiritual man, Christ Jesus, their personal Savior, and the God in the midst of them.
Brethren, Christ Jesus, the Saviour in the midst of me, cannot save you. Christ Jesus has to be growing out of your own mortal soul (personality). He has to be in your heart, He has to be your mind, He has to be controlling your life. He has to be waging war against your own Carnal Mind and, specifically against Satan, the unconscious part of the Carnal Mind, the enemy of your soul (personality), Christ Jesus has to get inside of you. I can only do so much for you, brethren. You have to start walking, or you will surely die to whatever degree of the life of the Lord Jesus is in you now. Jesus is pushing baby Christians (typified by eagles) out of the nest In this hour. I hear their screams in my spiritual mind, they are going squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, squawk, but they are starting to fly. The days of having the worms fed directly into their mouths are over. If you do not start to fly, brethren, you are going to die to the spiritual life of Christ Jesus, which is your potential to be restored to immortality.
First of all, we must understand that there is an immortal soul, which Jesus calls the worm that dieth not (Mk 9:46), and a mortal soul (Rom 8:11), which is the personality.
Paulís reference to a mortal soul (Rom 8:11), witnesses to the existence of an immortal soul.
There is an immortal root (worm) (Mk 9:46) in mortal man, that the human soul (mortal personality) is formed around. (Footnote # 1)
