He didn't run from the cross so it would be stupid to think He would run now.
One of the amazing things about Jesus dying on the cross other then Him paying the price for of our sins is the fact that he could have stoped it at any time but He loved us so much that He didn't.
All He had to do was think stop.
that is a perfectly valid reflection, imo, as far as it goes, but i meant to reflect that Christ did, in fact, elude those who sought to kill him earlier in His Ministry; so don't get me wrong there. We are kind of talking about two different subjects, i think.
are the Body of Christ now, and we have many passages that describe this concept of "on the run." "When you are persecuted in one town, flee to another,"
this has nothing to do with that, prolly, i just need to dump this somewhere, to get it out of "copy," so i can use copy for something else.
1 Corinthians 15:39-47 ASV
39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one flesh of men, and another flesh of beasts, and another flesh of birds, and another of fishes.
40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differeth from another star in glory.
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 it is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 it is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.
45 So also it is written, The first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
46 Howbeit that is not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; then that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: [Genesis 2:7] the second man is of heaven [Genesis 1:26-27].
Thus the second man from the heavens, that is, in Messiah, that one is called "very good", (Genesis 1:31), and indeed has now been given dominion over the fish of the sea, (for Messiah is the ultimate "fisher of men" and taught his disciples and apostles to do the same by the Word of Elohim), and has likewise been given dominion over the fowls of the heavens and the air, (for they are the Wicked one, the Devil, and the Satan, the Parable of the Sower in its three Synoptic Gospel companion chapters), and has been given dominion over the behemah-beasts, (for example, the lioness, the she-bear robbed of her cubs, the leopardess, and the fourth beast dreadful and terrible, Hosea 13, Revelation 13, Daniel 7, [Septuagint], and rams, lambs, and goats, [Daniel 8], and all clean beasts), and is thus given dominion over all his land, (for every man has his land which is the house-body-temple, the "helpmate" of an earthen vessel, and every man is likened to a house, Matthew 12:43-45, Luke 11:24-26), and is even given dominion over all the "creepers" that creep upon his land, ("the flesh", with all of its attributes, wherein nothing good dwells, Romans 7:14-25), because the new creation man in Messiah believes and applies the Testimony of Yeshua to both his doctrine and himself. Those who do not will never take dominion over such things because they see it as ridiculously literal and physical in meaning while ignoring the all important Testimony of Yeshua.
It is not about the creation of the literal physical world because unto Elohim YOU are the world and created to be in communion with Him, to be His holy Temple, (anyone who is of a willing heart).
2 Corinthians 5:16-17
16 Wherefore, from now on, we know nothing-no one according to the flesh: and even if we have known Messiah according to the flesh, contrariwise, now we know him yet no more [as such].
17 Therefore, if anyone be in Messiah, the same is a new creation-creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new [Revelation 21:5-6].
