This world is the outward reflection of the supernatural world of which was created by God, through Christ.
Everything that is seen, is the reflection and essence of the invisible world of the spiritual.
Behind everything that is in this created order of reality, there is a corresponding invisible pole, which gives life to the visible, of which is seen and heard, and felt.
Everything that makes up this world and life, reflect the invisible creation, which is hidden to us by nature.
Through Adams disobedience and fall, humanity now is blinded to this reality that is hidden.
Behind all living things, also the elemental realities, such as wind, air, fire the elemental s of creation, all have corresponding spiritual realities behind them.
This supernatural sphere in the realm of, which the bible calls the heavenlies, is beyond distance, has no bounds, is endless. There is no measurement of any kind of natural distance in this realm of reality.
In this other world of creation. It is like diving into the ocean, one needs a constitution, which is totally different and other than what we presently have, if one is truly to be able to live and move in this altogether other worldly environment.
Jesus came into this natural world of creation through natural birth. He bore the human body of a man of Adam. He grew as a man, experienced all the things that make up humanity, but the difference was that behind his physical appearance, which he took upon himself, behind in the world of the supernatural realm, he maintained the reality of the creator of all ruler of all things.
When Jesus walked this earth, people looked at him just as a man of Adam, but behind this created natural order, the supernatural world recognized him as the God of Adam. There was no mistaking things, all the principalities and powers, also demons recognized him as God. There was no mistaking who he was behind this created world. Jesus was recognized as the creator of all things, the one who has all authority in the heavens and in the earth.
When Jesus walked this earth everything was subject to his authority, even the elements of the created order were in subjection to this profound authority, which the disciples were privileged to witness.
This other reality that is hidden to us in Adam, has been now revealed to us through the reality of coming into the Christ of Gods creation, who is the order of Gods supernatural world of the heavenlies, of which the bible says are in Christ Jesus.
When we come to what the bible calls new birth, we are brought into this new world, which was not a reality before. It is the place of what Paul calls in the heavenlies in Christ Jesus. It is a totally different kind of a world for us.
When one truly comes into the reality of new birth, then this should be true in some measure in ones own personnel experience.
This new world that is in Christ Jesus, is a profound place and environment, with endless possibilities.
This realm is an absolutely glorious place, and profoundly amazing.
It is a new order of reality for us, with new rules and requirements that one is subjected to.
This new world is like starting school again, it takes time to learn and recognize all the laws and rules that govern this place. It has different and strange values and systems, which are unfamiliar to us.
But this other world of the supernatural, has many pit falls also, and much hostility in it, to one that now finds himself in it.
This new world is filled with supernatural beings, who are not very enthused about our coming in and crashing the party. We find that we are not very welcome in this environment. it seems to be very agitating to the realities and supernatural beings that we find ourselves in the midst of. They let us know very early on that we are not very welcome. They have no desire to share this world of authority, which they inhabit.
But this is the world that we are brought into through Christ. It has been given to us to explore, inherit, and enjoy. It is our inheritance through our union with the son of God, who is the supreme and sovereign authority in this wonderful otherworldly realm.
8 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the [f]elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ. 9 For in Him all the fullness of Deity (the Godhead) dwells in bodily form [completely expressing the divine essence of God]. 10 And in Him you have been made complete [achieving spiritual stature through Christ], and He is the head over all rule and authority [of every angelic and earthly power. Colossians-2, 8 to 10
15 He is the exact living image [the essential manifestation] of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible], the firstborn [the preeminent one, the sovereign, and the originator] of all creation. 16 For [d]by Him all things were created in heaven and on earth, [things] visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [that is, by His activity] and for Him. 17 And He Himself existed and is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. [His is the controlling, cohesive force of the universe.] 18 He is also the head [the life-source and leader] of the body, the [e]church; and He is the beginning, [f]the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will occupy the first place [He will stand supreme and be preeminent] in everything. 19 For it pleased the Father for all the fullness [of deity—the sum total of His essence, all His perfection, powers, and attributes] to dwell [permanently] in Him (the Son), 20 and through [the intervention of] the Son to reconcile all things to Himself, making peace [with believers] through the blood of His cross; through Him, [I say,] whether things on earth or things in heaven. Colossians- 1, 15 to 20
