I am new to your ministry, but I'm very interested in the truth. I noticed in your writings you use Christ Jesus as the resurrected Adam and Jesus Christ as the emancipated slave. I do not understand. Would you please explain. I am looking forward to your reply.
PASTOR SHEILA: As you correctly perceived, Christ Jesus is the resurrected Adam, the Son of God
Lk. 4:Luke 3:23, And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli,***38, Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God. KJV Christ Jesus is the spiritual man who was within the human being, Jesus. Jesus of Nazareth, the human being, was born of a woman, but Christ Jesus, the regenerated Adam, is the spiritual man that Jehovah formed from the spirit of Elohim and the dust of the earth. Christ Jesus joined to, or married, the personality known as Jesus, and through this union, the human being Jesus, became Jesus, the Christ, the son of God. Salvation is through union with the spirit of Christ, and the spirit of Christ is within the spiritual man Christ Jesus.1 Tim 2:5, For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; KJV
In our fallen condition, the physical body and the personality of mortal man are inseparable, but salvation is for the personality, not for the physical body. We are promised a new, spiritual body to replace our corrupt, physical body, which easily falls prey to disease and death.. When Jesus, the man, was crucified, his personality, which was joined to the spiritual man Christ Jesus, separated from his physical body, which was subject to death. This is the truth of salvation. It is the salvation of the personality. The physical body is dust.
The human being, Jesus, is now completely joined to the spiritual man Christ Jesus, and the whole family of God in heaven, and can never die again because of this union. Jesus has been emancipated, or liberated from this world of the flesh, and can now come and go as he pleases on all spiritual planes.
All of humanity is enslaved by the negative powers and principalities that rule this world.
Eph 6:12, For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. KJV
2 Cor 4:4, In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. KJV
Every man born of a woman is a spiritual slave. This is why we need salvation, which is deliverance from this wicked world system, where hell and death reign. Jesus, the Christ, who was born of a woman just like we were, was completely liberated from this world system. The rulers of this world could not force him to die, just like everyone born of a woman eventually dies.
Col 2:15, And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. KJV
Therefore, Jesus, the Christ, is the emancipated slave, the first man born of a woman to be liberated from the spiritual prison of the flesh. Rev 3:14, And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; KJV
Heb 2:10, For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. KJV
Col 1:18, And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. KJV
The glorified Jesus Christ is working in the earth today, by his Holy Spirit, to regenerate Christ Jesus in the many members of humanity
Matt 19:28, And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. KJV
Christ is the seed of the glorified Jesus Christ that is grafted to our human spirit, in the hope that He will fully mature into the spiritual man, Christ Jesus. James 1:21, Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls KJV

I hope I have answered your question. As you may realize, many people visit our Web pages. Some of them write to me in the wrong spirit, with an ungodly attitude, which leaves me no choice but to refuse them personal contact with me. Our Web pages, however, are always available to all who choose to view them. .I have prepared a statement laying out the requirements for a personal relationship with me in the hope of avoiding such difficulties and any potential problems which may arise out of a lack of understanding on the part of anyone who would like to contact me. I am attaching a copy of my "terms our relationship," so that you can be aware of my position, in the event that you should decide to write to me again. God bless you. May the Lord Jesus answer all of your prayers for truth, and wisdom, and a knowledge of Him and his glorious resurrection. In Christ,
