Jesus of Nazareth, who was Christ in the days of His flesh, is the First Generation of the Mature Christ to appear in fallen humanity.
Today, the glorified Jesus (Acts 9:3-5) is appearing in His offspring (Is. 53:10), Christ Jesus (1 Tim. 2:5), the Second Generation of the Mature Christ (Matt. 1:1, 17; Jn. 12:24; 1 Pet. 2:9) to be revealed in fallen humanity (1 Jn. 3:2).

Mind, A New Thing
The spirit of man, sometimes called the human spirit, or Eve, is the female reproductive organ of the soul. She marries a male spirit, conceives, and gives birth to the Mind of the creation (Gen. 2:7; James 1:15). Mind, then, is neither exclusively spirit, nor exclusively soul, but a whole new creature (Gal. 6:15) which can identify with both spirit and soul (1 Tim. 2:5). Despite this duality, however, Mind assumes the nature of its father and functions as spirit. We can correctly say, then, that the female human spirit, the male spirit which she marries, and their child, the Mind which is born of the marriage, form the three-fold Mind of man (Ecc. 4:12).1
Death In The Garden
In the beginning, the Father breathed into the man (Gen. 2:7), and Christ became the Mind of the creation (1 Pet. 1:11). But the
man failed to keep the garden (Gen. 2:15), and the woman committed adultery with Satan (Gen. 3:6; Rev. 17:2), and the Carnal Mind was born into the man (James 1:15; Rev. 17:5), and the Carnal Mind killed the [Mind of] Christ (see, Alternate
And there it was, a different living creature, one inferior in authority and subordinate to the first, and this one was a wild, raging warmonger, and she incarnated as a mortal man without the image of Christ. And the mind which caused the living soul that died to incarnate had three parts to it: The Serpent, the human spirit and the Carnal Mind, and she was mortal, and Satan, the human spirit and the Carnal Mind said to themselves, Let us incarnate and be the accuser of all mankind (Alternate Translation, Daniel 7:5 [Messagee # 71, Part 3]).

Translation, Daniel 8:4-9, pp i-ii), and man' s relationship to God
(Is. 14:14,16) and Heaven (Is. 14:12; Ez. 31:16) came to an end.
Eve' s adulterous union with Satan (Gen. 3:13; Rev. 17:1-2) resulted in the illegitimate birth of the Carnal Mind, who killed Christ and separated man from God. (See, Alternate Translation, Dan. 8:4-9, pp i-ii.) And the spirit of man clave unto her own soul instead of the Spirit of the Father, and the whole creation (the spirit of man and the soul which God formed from the Earth),fell down from Heaven into the clay prison houses (Job 4:19) which man presently inhabits, and man has been connected to himself instead of the Father ever since. And this is how man turned inward (James 1:23), and became selfish (James 1:24), and died (Gen. 3:24), and began to travel in spiritual circles (Ez. 39:14-15) upon the surface of this world system (Gen. 3:14), which is called Hell (Rev. 6:8). (See, 2nd Half of Note 11, beginning with line 13.)
So Death (see, Note d), then, is not the death of the body, but the death of the Mind which the Father breathed into the man at the beginning (Gen. 2:7). The Mind of Christ died (1 Cor. 15:3)5 and the Carnal Mind which Satan formed (Jn. 3:6; Rom. 8:5 ; Rev. 17:5) married the soul which was Christ's wife (Rev. 19:7), and she died also (1 Cor. 15:22), and the Image of Heaven, the expression of the Father in the Visible, Spiritual world called the Garden of Eden, became the Image of Death, the expression of Satan in a Visible, Physical world called Hell. (See, Alternate

Translation, Daniel 8:8-9, p ii.)III.
Mind Is The Mediator
God' s creation is both spirit and soul. The soul is the container which holds the spirit, and the Mind is the structure, or Spiritual Government (Is. 9:6; Rom. 13:1-7), through which the spirit rules.
The male spirit which fathers the Mind becomes god, and the
Mind, becomes lord, master and high priest (Heb. 3:1), of the whole creation. So we see that Mind, which is both spirit and soul, but functions as spirit, is the mediator which connects the male spirit to the female soul (James 1:15).
Before the Fall, the Mind of Christ ruled the creation, after the Fall, the Carnal Mind, and at the beginning of the Regeneration(Matt. 19:28), the Mind of Christ reigned, once again, in the man, Jesus of Nazareth.
Today, the whole, glorified person of Jesus, who was Christ in the days of His flesh (John 16:33), is appearing in the creation as a
And Jesus said to [Satan], there' s a new mind being revealed through the living soul that died, and you have no authority to test Christ, your God, the one who owns you [the one who is lord and master over you]. (Alternate Translation, Matt. 4:7 [Message # 219, Part 2].)
And there was set up within fallen Adam a foundation that gave Him mastery over his own fallen soul, a spirit that produces life from within itself and a glorified body, even Christ, so that all the peoples who know God and all those who don' t know Him, all nationalities and all groups of people with different ethnic backgrounds but who speak the same language, should break open their Adamic soul and pierce through into the realm of God' s Spirit; Adam' s mastery over his own soul is for the life of the ages: he shall never lose it [again], and his glorified body shall not be destroyed.
(continued. . .)
deliver man out from Hell and the bondage of Death. This Government is greater than a Mind. It is a whole new man (2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 6:15; Eph. 4:24; Col. 3:10) whose Mind is Christ (1 Cor. 2:16). Christ Jesus is the new man which the Lord Jesus Christ has begotten in you (1 Pet. 1:23; James 1:21), and the Mind of Christ Jesus is the Mind of the New Man. (See, Note 17.)
The Kingdom of God is Christ Jesus appearing in a man whose carnal mind is still functioning (Rom. 7:24,8:11). The mind is the body of the spirit. The Kingdom of God becomes the Kingdom of
Heaven when Christ Jesus so subjects the Carnal Mind, that the two function as one man under the authority of the Christ (Acts 2:46; Eph. 6:5; Col. 3:22). The man in which the Kingdom of Heaven is appearing is a perfect man (Eph. 4:13; James 3:2).
Christ Jesus, The Only Mediator
The Carnal Mind connects man (soul) to Satan, the prince of this world (Jn. 14:30) and the false god of this fallen creation (Jn. 8:44). Satan is one part of the female soul (Gen. 1:4-5; Gen. 2:7)
which has illegally taken on a male role (Gen. 3:13). The

(continued. . .)
Carnal Mind, then, is a Mind born of the human spirit, the female reproductive organ of the soul, and Satan, who is another part of that same female soul. So we see, then, that the Carnal Mind is the incestuous offspring of the human spirit and Satan, that other part of the same female soul which is functioning as a male (see, Note 10). The Carnal Mind cannot connect man to God, then, because she only has access to that other part of her own female soul which is illegally functioning as a male spirit (Rom. 8:5). (See, Note 10.)
Christ Jesus, the spiritual man in which the resurrected, Mature Mind of Christ resides, connects man to the one true God, the Lord Jesus Christ (Jn. 15:1). The Mind of Christ Jesus, then, is a Mind born of the human spirit, the female reproductive organ of the soul, and the Lord Jesus Christ. The man, Christ Jesus, is the only mediator between God and man (1 Tim. 2:5).
A World Is A Visible Image Of A Ruling Spirit
A world, or Environment, in which man can exist is an Image, or a Visible expression, of invisible, formless spirit, which openly declares the nature of the one who has fashioned it (1 Cor. 7:31). This corrupt world which we live in, for example, loudly trumpets the Hellish nature of its architect, Satan.
Soul is the building material and Mind is the spiritual structure which form the Image of a world. Spirit becomes rigid and takes form when he passes through Mind and soul, just as water vapor turns into ice when it passes through freezing temperatures. (See, 2nd Half of Note 12, beginning with line 7).
Invisible, unformed spirit dwelling inside of soul fortifies his city, or his kingdom, by erecting a Visible Image of Himself round about the soul (Zech. 2:5; Is. 60:18). Viewing the relationship between spirit, Mind and soul, then, as a series of
(. . . continued)
concentric circles with spirit at the center, Mind next and then soul, we see that an Image is formed when spirit, which abides in the innermost circle, penetrates Mind and pierces through soul, forming a fourth circle, or a world, beyond them.11
We can say, then, that the god of the creation appears as an Image of a world, or a living Environment, when he penetrates the Mind which he has begotten in the soul and then, piercing
And Satan' s Carnal Mind went beyond the Visible, Spiritual Earth, called Eden (the Image of Heaven) , and caused the Visible, Physical Earth, called Hell, (the Image of Death), to appear, and Satan' s Carnal Mind aborted the Father' s Christ, and righteous Adam and the many members of God' s creation were given over into Satan' s custody beyond the Visible, Spiritual Earth of Eden because of rebellion, and Satan broke forth upon the many members of humanity, and intertwined her Carnal Mind with their soul, and the spiritual potential of God' s creation, and of the many members which were destined to be born into it, was permanently altered because of Satan' s union with fallen Adam, and Satanís Carnal Mind reformed the many members of God' s creation into Satan' s image, and they became earthy, sensual and devilish, and this is how Satanís Carnal Mind built a nation of Physical men who would engage in continuous labor, and they entered into the Visible, Physical Earth of Hell, where they would labor to survive. And this is how righteous Adam, the dwelling place of the Mind of Christ, was overthrown. (Alternate Translation, Daniel 8:10-12 [Message # 165, Parts 9 - 10].)
through to the other side of that soul12, forms a fourth circle round
about the whole city.
Mind, then, not only connects man to the god who is the master of his soul (see, III. ,∂ 2), but also binds the whole man, spirit and soul, to the Image of the world system which that god has formed.
Before the Fall, the Mind of Christ is called Heaven. The world formed by the Father through the Mind of Christ is the Image of Heaven, called the Garden of Eden.
After the Fall, the Carnal Mind is called Death (Rom. 8:6). The world formed by Satan through the Carnal Mind is called the Image of Death, or Hell.
In the Regeneration, the Mind of Christ is found in the man Christ Jesus. The world formed by the Lord Jesus Christ through the Mind of Christ Jesus is called the Image of the Kingdom of Heaven. (See III. , ∂∂ 4-6.)
The Father forms the Image of a Visible world which is Spiritual. Satan forms the Image of a Visible world which is Physical. Our bodies are a part of the Image of Satan' s Visible, Physical world.
Hell, Satan' s Visible, Physical world, is lying on top of the Image of the Kingdom of Heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ's Visible, Spiritual world. Also, Satan' s Carnal Mind is lying ontop of the Lord Jesus Christ's Mind of Christ Jesus. We can say,
Satan, who is a part of the female soul, was confident that he could erect an Image of a world as well as the male Christ so, enraged with envy, he violently penetrated the Mind of Christ and broke forth as spirit upon the female reproductive parts of the soul, and he took her for himself and fornicated with her without any alarm or fear of God, and they hardened into this Visible, Physical world system, which is the Image of Death, also known as Hell. (Alternate Translation, Job 40:23-24 [Message # 18, Part 6].) (See, also, Alternate Translation, Daniel 8:4, pp i.)
Heaven and Death is covering over the Mind of Christ Jesus. (See, III. ∂∂ 4-6). Behold, I show you a mystery, the kingdom of
God is within you! (Luke 17:21.)
And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places (Rev. 6:14). *
When the Carnal Mind killed the Mind of Christ she assumed His Name: Heaven. The Heaven which is departing as a scroll, then, is actually Death, or the Carnal Mind. When Death is rolled together, the Kingdom of Heaven which is underneath her shall be revealed. And when Hell falls down with a crash (2 Pet. 3:10), the Image of the Kingdom of Heaven shall appear in all of its glory (Rev. 21:1-2).
The phrase, the Heaven departing as a scroll is speaking about the Carnal Mind going down under the Mind of Christ (Acts 17:6). This event is called the Second Stage of Resurrection. (See, Message # 251.)
Underneath your Carnal Mind and Physical body.
Duality Of Mind, A Good Sign
Duality of Mind is the condition which man fell into when righteous Adam, who was the Christ, yielded to the Serpent in
his thoughts (1 Tim. 2:14). Every man is born with a Carnal Mind, but Jesus of Nazareth is the only man who was ever born with both a Carnal Mind, which He inherited from His mother, and the Mind of Christ, which he inherited from His heavenly Father. Christ, the spiritual man (Son of God) within the mortal man, Jesus of Nazareth (Son of Man) and Jesus of Nazareth (Son of Man) were permanently joined through crucifixion, and the two, who are now one, go by the Name of Christ Jesus, who is the Word of God (John 1:1) and the only begotten Son of God (John
1:18; John 3:16,18; 1 Jn. 4:9). Jesus is appearing in the Earth
Elijah experienced the fall from the Mind of Christ down to the Carnal Mind in 1 Kings 19:
And at the time that Elijah yielded to Satan's thoughts, he rebelled against Christ and deserted Him, and Elijah' s human spirit was joined to Satan, and Satan strengthened Elijah' s Carnal Mind Satan' s high priest who was held captive by the Mind of Christ within Elijah, and Elijah joined with his Carnal Mind, and Elijah married his Carnal Mind , and Satanís Carnal Mind within Elijah rose up hostilely and sacrificed Christ with Elijah to Satan. (Alternate Translation, 1 Kings 19:3-4 [Message # 224, Part 2].)

today as the Holy Spirit (Joel 2:28; Acts 2:16-18).
Every man is born with a Carnal Mind, but only some men have the Word of God grafted to their human spirit (James 1:21) and the Mind of Christ Jesus being formed in them (Gal. 4:19).
The man who has both the Carnal Mind and the Mind of Christ Jesus is a double-minded man (James 1:8). Doublemindedness is not something to be avoided, but a
necessary, transitory condition which exists only until the Mind of Christ Jesus fully matures in us (Eph. 4:13) and subjects
our Carnal Mind to His authority (Rom. 1:4). If you have only one Mind, and that Mind is the Carnal Mind which you were born with -- if Christ hasn' t grafted to your human spirit and the Mind of Christ Jesus isn' t being formed in you -- you are of all
(. . . continued)
The Greek word translated brought forth is used only to describe the birth of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only Son begotten of the Father. This means Jesus was the only Son directly sired by the Father. Every other Son of God is sired by a cutting of Jesus Christ's glorified life (1 Jn. 3:2). And this is why we call the glorified Jesus Christ ďFather. Ē The glorified Jesus Christ is our Father, and we, those of us who have Christ grafted to their spirit and are living out of Him, are the collective Son of God, even though we have not yet arrived at the fullness of the stature of our Lord (Eph. 4:13)..
Therefore, the whole creation is laboring to give birth to the sons which God is eagerly expecting, because neither the Father nor the man desired that the creation should be subjected to Satan. Nevertheless, because the Lord has given us the hope that Christ Jesus will subject the one [Satan] who subjected us, the creation will be freed from the slavery of Death and the corruption which is in Hell, into the glorious freedom which the children of God experience in Christ Jesus. (Alternate Translation, Romans 8:19-21 [Message # 196 - Part 1].)
men, most miserable -- Alas, the only One who can Deliver you
from this deadly Illusion called Hell is not in you! (Col. 1:27;
The Visible Environment which man lives in, including his body, is, indeed, an Illusion, but physical pain, emotional stress and natural disasters are very real to the man trapped in this Imageof Death.
Illusion means temporary. We live in a temporary, changing world, and thank God for it. If it were not so, we would have no hope of being changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, into the glorious image of Christ.
Some say that it' s possible for man to ascend out of duality of Mind by exercising the spiritual Mind power which he was born with. But the Mind we are born with, the Carnal Mind, doesn' t have the strength to disperse the Image of Death (Psalms 18:5; 116:3).
Some also say that man is born with the potential to erect an
You say that it' s not true that the dead [Mind of Christ] is being resurrected in the many members of humanity. If this is so, and there really isn' t any resurrection of the dead [Mind of Christ], and that dead [Mind of Christ] wasn' t resurrected in the man, Jesus, before He was crucified, then the whole man, Jesus, couldn' t have been resurrected.
So, if the dead [Mind of] Christ wasn' t resurrected in the man, Jesus, we' re exposed as false witnesses of God, because we' ve testified that God resurrected [Jesus], the Christ.
And, if [Jesus], the Christ wasn' t resurrected, then our preaching to you about the resurrection of the dead, and your belief that it will happen to you, is pointless, because, if the [Mind of Christ] wasn' t raised from the dead in the man, Jesus, He won' t be raised from the dead in you either, and your hope of age-abiding life is pointless, because the Carnal Mind which you were born with is dead because of sin (see, 2 Cor. 5:14; Rom. 8:10). (Alternate Translation, 1 Cor. 15:13-17 [Message # 186, Part 9].)
Image of an immortal world system which could sustain the life of man indefinitely, but neither does the Carnal Mind have the strength to do that (Matt. 12:26; Mark 3:26).
The Image of the Kingdom of Heaven is the only world system which can sustain the life of immortal man, and only the Lord Jesus Christ can erect it -- through the Mind of Christ Jesus in you (see, III. , ∂ 4-6).
Some say, further, that man is born with the Kingdom of God within him, like Jesus was, but Jesus told the Pharisees that the kingdom of God was not in them! (Matt. 23:27; Luke 11:20.)
The Kingdom of God and its righteousness are missing ingredients in fallen man which must be added to him if we are to live (2 Kings 2:20-22; 4:40-41; 2 Kings 6:5-6; Rom. 9:32; Eph. 2:9). Jesus being the only Son born from seed, then, the rest of humanity must be born lacking the Mind of Christ. (See, Note 16.) Therefore, unless the Lord Jesus Christ grafts Himself to us (James 1:21), and forms the Mind of Christ Jesus in us, we are lost without hope in the Hell of this world system (Eph. 2:12), which is the Image of Death. But since Jesus was begotten of God, we have the hope of being grafted in.19

The fully accomplished crucifixion of the Carnal Mind to the Mind of Christ Jesus kills the Carnal Mind, not the Mind of Christ Jesus (see, Note 5) so that the whole man can be raised from the dead (Gal. 2:20). True singularity of spirit (2 Cor.
11:3 ) is in the crucifixion of [the Carnal Mind to] Christ Jesus (Gal. 6:14; 1 Cor. 2:2), and in that singularity, lies the power of God (Rev. 12:10) unto life everlasting (1 Tim. 6:16). (See, also, Alternate Translation, Daniel 8:24, pp 23-24.)

III. The Mature Mind of Christ AND THE MAN, JESUS, The Christ, WERE RAISED FROM THE DEAD AT DIFFERENT TIMES (Rom 8:11). (See, Message # 186, Parts 8 & 9.)
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, the Mature Mind of Christ within Him could have sustained the life of the flesh of the man, Jesus. 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 cannot separate from his Physical body until his Physical body dies.
How, then, could wicked, human men have killed the Mature Mind of Christ in the man, Jesus? If crucifying His body, only killed the Physical body of Jesus because He willfully gave up the Ghost (John 10:17-18), or first breathed Himself out of the Physical body -- if wicked men really had no power to kill His Physical body -- how, then, could they have killed His Mature Christ Mind?
The death of one' s Mind is intimately related to separation from the Physical body which is merely a container for, but has no existence apart from, the soul. The Carnal Mind is a part of the dead soul that separates from the Physical body after the soul dies to this existence, which is called Hell.
Fallen Adam needs a Physical body to live in since his Carnal Mind and fallen soul are dead because of sin (2 Cor. 5:14, Rom. 8:10), but the mature Christ within the man, Jesus, could exist in this world without a Physical body to live in, since He was alive because of righteousness (Rom. 6:13).
The Physical body returns to spiritual dust (Gen. 3:19) and disappears after the living spiritual man departs from the Carnal Mind and dead soul, because the spiritual man (the spiritual sun (Mal 4:2), which is the source that attracts the material atoms of the Physical body), is no longer forming the material atoms into an image (Physical body). The glorified Christ attracted spiritual atoms from the world that He ascended into, to form a glorious Spiritual body, and Jesus' dead Physical body ceased to exist.
The Spiritual body becomes an undergarment when the glorified spiritual man appears in this world, so the glorified Jesus Christ acquires existing physical bodies to wear, to minister to His people (Acts 9:3-5).
If the Mind of Christ died on the cross, then, who killed Him? Fallen men only have the authority to kill the Physical body (Matt. 10:28). When the Physical body of a fallen man dies, it is because his soul is already dead -- or else the body could not die. Even if the Mind of Christ, which was alive in the man, Jesus, had agreed that wicked men should kill the man Jesus, the soul that He was married to, which was also alive because it was joined to the Mind of Christ -- how would a fallen human man kill a soul which was made alive because it was joined to the living Christ?
That' s the whole point! Fallen man cannot kill a soul which is alive because it is married to the Mind of Christ. Only the Father can decide whether a soul lives or dies!
That is why, when wicked men tried to kill the Mind of Christ by crucifying the Physical body of the man, Jesus, who was the Christ, the Father made the judgment that Jesus was without sin (because the living Christ Mind had revived Jesusí soul (personality) by marrying it, and Jesus was now alive, that is, dead to the sin nature of the Carnal Mind), so the Father raised the whole (Mind and soul) man, Jesus, out of this realm of death.
The fact that Jesus' Mind and soul didn' t die when his Physical body died, is the ultimate proof that Jesus was without sin, even the very Christ -- and the Father is the only judge of that!
V. THIRD - THIRD PART OF - studies in the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ reveal this is the Satanic realm of the fallen man. (See, Message # 45.)
VI. THE DAY -can mean a civil day which includes both day and night:
. . . . [the immature Mind of] Christ died in the age across from our sins [in the spiritual age before this physical age] . . . . and that [the immature Mind of] Christ [which is spirit] was buried underneath the Earth of the Carnal Mind of this fallen soul, and that [the Mature Mind of] Christ was raised up out of the Carnal Mind of a fallen man [Jesus] who had received light [and was made perfect when Christ became his Mind]. (Alternate Translation, 1 Cor. 15:3-4 [Message # 186, Part 9].)
The many-membered, immature Christ was in righteous Adam when He fell under the influence of the Serpent and died, and the young Christ was joined with chains of darkness (2 Pet 2:4, Jude 6) to the Carnal Mind of fallen Adam.
Jesus inherited a Carnal Mind from Mary, and subjected that Carnal Mind to the Christ Mind within Himself (Rom 1:4). So, it was this immature Mind of Christ (which is under the dominion of the Carnal Mind in fallen Adam), within the man, Jesus, that was buried under the spiritual waters of baptism (Rom 6:3) (with the rest of the Carnal Mind that Jesus inherited from Mary (see, Message # 170)).
The young Christ who died when righteous Adam died, was released from His forced union with the Carnal Mind [Satanic realm/third part of the Day] when John baptized Jesus in the Jordan. After that, the regenerated (Matt 19:28) young Christ nailed (crucified) Himself to the Carnal Mind within the man,
Jesus of Nazareth, and this is how Christ 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
Alternate Translation, Rom 14:9, And this is the reason that Christ (Abel), 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 mind].
The account of the death and resurrection of Christ in 1 Cor. 15:3-4 is speaking about the young Christ within the man, Jesus, not the man, Jesus of Nazareth, who was Christ in the days of His flesh, and, therefore, skips over the account of the crucifixion OF THE MAN, Jesus, BECAUSE THE CRUCIFIXION OF THE MAN, JESUS, HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD CHRIST.
If the Christ within the man, Jesus, was not already raised from the dead at the time the Physical body of the man, Jesus, was crucified, the Father would not have raised the whole (Mind and soul) man out of this realm of death! Why? Because the sin nature must be dead before the soul can enter into the Immortality of Righteousness! (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 theythat 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
By the time we get to verse 5, both the Mind of Christ and Jesus, the Christ, had risen and become one new man (Eph. 2:15; Rev. 3:14), so the Scripture says, And that he [the one New Man] was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve . .
[Message # 71]
. . . . and there it was, a different, despised source of spiritual power rising up from underneath the earth of fallen Adam . . . called Christ . . . . [and He had] the appearance of a mortal man and a personality proclaiming the mighty works of God . . . . and fallen Adam came into submission to Christ, and . . . . was cleansed from all sin . . . . and Christ broke forth from within them . . . . and the three-fold spirit of fallen Adam was cut off and her spiritual authority dispersed and lapped up by the fire of God . . . . and they were set free from the realm of time.
And, indeed, the men who are joined in their mind to Christ Jesus have taken authority over their own soul and become sinless; they shall . . . . [therefore] destroy the spiritual authority of the Carnal Mind in the remaining members of fallen Adam by causing Christ to appear in them also. And Christ shall complete God' s creation by bringing the spiritual military strength and rulership of the Carnal Mind to naught, and installing Himself as the irrefutable King of the many-membered living soul.
[Message # 165]
(19) And Gabriel said to Daniel, look, I' ll help you to understand that the end of God's punishment upon mankind is the reconciliation of the whole creation unto God.
(24) And the king' s fortified Christ Mind shall be
strong enough to bind up and destroy the Carnal Mind of the first fruits of fallen humanity to be raised from the dead, so that the priests [Sons] of God can appear, and He shall paralyze their Carnal Mind, and pass through them, and flow over them like a river, and He shall offer up their Carnal Mind as a sin offering to the Father.
And this is how the King, the Lord Jesus Christ, shall give the first fruits of fallen humanity the Single Mind of Christ Jesus.
(25-27) And the Lord Jesus Christ shall pass through and flow over the Carnal Mind of the first fruits of fallen humanity to be raised from the dead, by giving them an understanding of His Plan of Salvation; and He shall beget a Son, and Christ Jesus shall break forth from the womb of fallen humanity and stand upon the Foundation of the glorified Jesus Christ, the one who is the Chief Prince over the many princes of the Christ Jesus company, and Christ Jesus shall bring peace to fallen humanity by binding their Carnal Mind together with the Mind of Christ Jesus.
