Jesus glorify us with the glory we had with you before the world was?
If God chose us before the foundation of the world in Christ, then we must have been in Christ before God created the world?
How can God choose some in Christ, but not all, if we weren’t there for the choice to be made.
God saw us in Christ before the world was made?
The question is, were we aware of our existence of consciousness before God made his choice in Christ?
If God sees something through foreordination, then how can it not exist?
God’s thoughts are created actions of reality? Our thought are imagination, but God’s thoughts are events of reality.
If God singled us in Christ before the world, then in some way we have to have been there to be seen?
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. Ephesians 1, 7-10
The bible says something was lost in Christ, which God in Christ had to find.
That’s what redemption alludes to, retrieving something, which once was lost.
If something was lost, then it only makes sense that it must have been something to be found, not an imagination?
For the Son of man came to seek and to save that which was lost. Luke 19, 10
Could the story of salvation history be the story of God reconciling of all things back to the source of all things, which at the beginning were in Christ, the place of the beginning? Where all things were in Christ? Like reading a book from the end pf the story to the beginning?
Who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins: who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and unto him; and he is before all things, and in him all things consist. 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. For it was the good pleasure of the Father that in him should all the fulness dwell; and through him to reconcile all things unto himself, having made peace through the blood of his cross; through him, I say, whether things upon the earth, or things in the heavens. Colossians 1,13-20
Gods thoughts and God’s ways are so beyond us. We can’t dismiss things which go against our present categories of belief?
In whom also we were made a heritage, having been foreordained according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his will; to the end that we should be unto the praise of his glory, we who had before hoped in Christ: in whom ye also, having heard the word of the truth, the gospel of your salvation,—in whom, having also believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, which is an earnest of our inheritance, unto the redemption of God’s own possession, unto the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1, 11-14
God lost something, Gods own possession in Christ?
In the dimension of time, we haven’t seen every thought of prophetic scripture revealed yet. Does that mean its not true?
Eternity runs alongside of time, then at the appointed season, breaks into time.
The cross was enacted before the world was made? when Jesus came as a man into time, the reality of the cross before creation was witnessed in time?
Everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain. If anyone has an ear, let him hear: Revelation 13, 8
How can all the prophetic events, which were proclaimed by the prophets, mostly yet future, if the prophets weren’t witnessing and seeing, what was true reality in realm of eternity.
Was it just their imagination, or were they seeing something, which had already taken place, long before time began its journey?
What I am beginning to see, is that the end of the history of time, just brings us back to the beginning, where all things were created in Christ.
History in our eyes is moving forward, but in Gods eyes history is moving backwards, to the place were all things began in Christ? Like God is reeling in history, back to the source of all things created in Christ?
I am starting to think that my history started not in this world, through my natural parents, but my history must have started in Christ, before the world was?
Time is one of Gods good creatures, created by God to reveal his eternal Godhead.
Time was created by God as the the place and history of his self revelation.
Time was created by the God as the canvas of his self revelation, of his eternal existence outside of time.
Without the creation of the event of time, the eternal God could not be known, nor apprehended by his creatures.
This mystery was only revealed through his act of self revelation, in the place called time.
Long before time ever came into being, the eternal Godhead was.
Time is the window through, which we his creatures are given access into the eternal event of the crucified God, who was crucified before the event of the time and creation?
Time gives us access to see the eternal crucified God, who always was, and always will be the crucified one.
The cross of time and history is his self revelation, of a self giving Creator, who is what time has now revealed him to be, in the history of time.
Time is the mystery of the eternal now, revealed not for those only of just the creatures of time, but for those also of eternity, who live outside of time, who long to look into time.
The creature that is called time, is also the theater for the creatures of eternity, who exist outside of the creature called time.
Time is the theater where those of eternity, are given revelation, to see the one who is hidden in the eternity outside of time?
Time is a living created creature, created in eternity, to show the mystery of the Crucified God, who will at the end of time, bring time back to the place where time began, where God will again be, what he has always been, all and in all.
