Good thread. We are the body of Christ as believers if we were baptized with Christ into this life. Baptism has a hidden meaning that I cover in
many of my threads. Keep in mind that our immersion into the body of Christ allows us to walk the same path. We are the cup bearer of Genesis 41.
The baker bakes the bread. Christ is the heel on either end.
1 Corinthians 10
16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation
in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.
One loaf of bread implies a heel on either end.
1 Corinthians 15
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”[f]; the last Adam, a
life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth;
the second man is of heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of
heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we[g] bear the image of the heavenly man.
50 I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.
51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. 53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the
imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. 54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then
the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”[
Adam is on either end. Being clothed with the new man is the key, yet we are not there yet. Salvation comes when Christ (The first new man) appears
to show us the way forward. Our new Robe is the wool that is shed by the sheep in the wilderness. It is washed and given back to us as a new body.
The good works we are destined for come in the remaining 1000 years. You must be born again and this is what baptism into Christ implies. The Blood
(Tree of Life) is shed for us.
Read my threads. I give much more information on this subject. Once you see it from the larger picture, you suddenly realize how the involvement in
the material world produces the new person we become later. We are destined for more than what you see today.
15 And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring[a] and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
The head crushing is happening as we move into the next 1000 years. The Heel is the key.
