 SPIRIT DOESN’T HAVE FLESH AND BONE

This morning I felt compelled to study the true meaning of the word “BONE” in scripture. We first hear this word, when Adam speaks to Eve and says, “This is flesh of my flesh, and bone of my bone.” The reason, I was compelled to study the word “Bone”, was because of a prophesy concerning Jesus that not one of his BONES would be broken. However, what came out of this study, in the end, had more to do with the REVELATION of CHRIST IN US, than anything else.

Let’s start by look at that passage that starting me down the looking glass.

 John 19:36: For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.

Why this struck me so, was because it was the first time I considered what our BONES actually do.

An adult Human Being has some 206 bones in their body. Without these bones to support us and help us to move, we would not be able to live, function, exist. The Bones HOLD US UP! That is important to note, for everything in the physical world is a symbol of what is going on in the spiritual.

 Romans 1:20: For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made.

That in itself is a wonderful revelation. Once you begin to look at your life through the eyes of allegory the mysteries of the Kingdom of God open up to us.  Believe it or not, everything in our lives physically is a symbol of what is going on spiritually. The physical world is a map to the spiritual. Take nothing for granted in life, all things work together for our good. As one interprets the symbols of dreams to understand the subconscious mind, we too should allow the Spirit of Truth to reveal the meaning of the symbols in our physical life. From our illness and disease, to how messy or neat our room is, to the street we live on, or how many stories our home is… Where we are in life is a representation of where we are spiritually. If there is no peace and love in our home, there is no love and peace in our heart. What we hate in others is what we fear the most about ourselves.

There is an old saying, “whatever is without is within”

We must remember, even though the physical explains the spiritual, we must NEVER mistake the physical for the spiritual.  The Temporal things in our lives may help us to better understanding the Eternal things of the Spirit, but we are NOT to put our trust and faith, in the things that are literally seen, touched, tasted, smelt, or heard. This world, should almost be looked upon as an illusion.

In Buddhism, the name for this ILLUSION of LIFE is MAYA. What is interesting about this, is the name of the Queen who gives birth to the Man Siddhatha, who becomes the Buddha, is MAYA… The Enlightened Ones Mothers is Maya (The Illusion of Life) … What a wonderful allegory of how the ILLUSION of THIS LIFE gives birth to ENLIGHTENMENT.

Oh, I know “Church” “How dare I bring up Buddhism on a typically Christian Blog?” 

Well, if you don’t like the allegory of Buddha’s birth, then let’s look at Jesus, who of course is my favorite, Christ the TRUTH, the Savior, and the story of his birth. His Mother’s name was MARY.

Mary in GREEK means “THEIR REBELLION” = Illusion/Lies – Same story being told here. Out of MAN’S REBELLION comes ENLIGHTENMENT = CHRIST.

Where was I? … Oh that’s right, not to put our faith in Temporal things. The reason, they are TEMPORARY and if they are TEMPORARY they are not REAL (enduring/truth)

2 Corinthians 4:18: While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

So, we understand the things of God by everything around us, in us, physically and sensually. But we are not to put our faith in TEMPORARY things. There is no hope for SALVATION in the SENSUAL world. That means people, there is no HOPE for Salvation IN ANYTHING outside of you, anything you can see, touch, taste, smell, or hear, cannot SAVE YOU, because, according to scripture it is TEMPORAL.

We are not to walk by our five senses, sight, touch, taste, smell, hearing… We are to walk by FAITH.

2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight:

Seriously, I challenge you to look at your life through new eyes. Walk by Faith. Don’t wait for salvation to come outside of you, or to return, because you will be waiting for a long, long, long time.

Jesus said, ” I am the ressurection and the life” “The Kingdom is Within”

Salvation is a NOW thing.

But I digress, let’s go back to what I was wirting about above… If we  really look at your circumstances, and then compare them to spiritual things. We can see what is going in SPIRITUALLY, “whatever without is first within.”

Romans 1:20: For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made.

So this is why the word BONES, struck me so. Since everything physical and temporal is a representation for us of things eternal and spiritual, I knew there was more to this story.

Just as the Literal, Physical Body of Jesus of Nazareth did not have one of it’s bones broken on the Cross… Spiritually, not one of the BONES (OUR SOULS) of the spiritual Body of Christ, will be BROKEN on the Cross…

This should create a sense of awe in you. Really think about this last statement… On the Cross NOT ONE BONE will be broken. This means in the END its all good, people.

John 6:37: All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

The work is finished in VICTORY! Not ONE BONE broken.

John 18:9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.

We understand that our literal BONES, primarily support and hold up our Body. They also make it possible for movement. So let us look at the symbolism here. If the BONES hold up the BODY and help the BODY to MOVE… And WE are the BODY OF CHRIST… Then, the SOULS of mankind are perhaps the BONES, who in the end are completely WHOLE and NOT BROKEN AT ALL.

So this, thought, that OUR SOULS are the BONES of the BODY OF CHRIST, that support the body and help the Body to Move, is why I began this study. But as I studied, something truly wonderful opened up to me about Christ’s appearing to the disciples after the ressurection.

Bones first:

This first evidence that immediately came to mind, was ISRAEL. Why Israel you say? Well, Israel is said to be the BODY OF CHRIST. As Christ came for this lost house.

So Israel, symbolically, would be the BONES that held up the body of Christ in the world. And Lo, and Behold, in the book of Ezekiel the answer is given as plain as day. The BONES are the Entire House of Israel.

Ezekiel 37: 11 Son of man, THESE BONES are the whole house of Israel.

Not the Literal House of Israel, for Bones are found INSIDE THE PERSON. The bones hold up the person, whether they be crooked or not. So you see, the Bones are the SOUL of this house of Israel. God said to the Prophet, look at these Dead Dried Up Bones, do you think they can live? Then God breathed on them and they came to life. Much the same way Adam became a LIVING SPIRIT.

What a great picture of how when the TRUTH OF GOD is poured into our soul (we remember) and these DEAD BONES (CARNAL SOULS) come to LIFE (TRUTH and ETERNITY) = CHRIST

Proverbs 14: A sound heart (soul) is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones.

Yes, there are plenty of scriptures I can quote, to show that BONES, are symbolic of the SOULS of man (The Entire House of Israel). Here are a couple. 

Proverbs 16:24:  Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, health to the bones.

Isaiah 58:11:  And the LORD shall guide thee, and satisfy thy soul in drought, make fat thy bones      

What makes this wonderful is that the finished work of Christ is prophesied and fulfilled. In addition, in this fulfillment not one of JESUS’S BONES (Mankind’s soul) is broken. Mankind’s soul is what makes up the BODY OF CHRIST.

 Adam said to EVE this is Flesh of my Flesh, Bone of My Bone… Eve is also symbolic of MAN’S SOUL (The bride of Adam) – Our Souls are the bride of CHRIST… God is SPIRIT not MAN that he should lie (Book of Numbers)

So we see in Adam and Eve, a picture of the UNITY of GOD’S SPIRIT and MAN’S SOUL – as Husband and Wife becoming ONE.  It is MAN’S soul that strayed and ate of the Tree, and the SPIRIT of God (Christ) followed into Man’s Soulish Carnal Death, to overcome it with TRUTH and save Man’s soul in the process, by becoming ONE WITH IT.

Now, while studying the word BONE in scripture, I was led to this passage below in Luke.

Luke 24: 38 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

You see, this actually became the crux of this essay. Many assume that when Jesus appeared to his disciples after his resurrection, that when he said, BEHOLD MY HANDS AND FEET, he was speaking in literal/temporal terms.

As if he was saying, “Hey I know you don’t recognize me, but CHECK OUT THESE HANDS AND FEET people” and then they say “Oh my goodness, Now we KNOW its you, no one has hands and feet like that!”  <- Insert laugh here.

What a strange way to get someone to recognize you if it be literal… Don’t you think?

First of all, wouldn’t those piercing blue eyes, well manicured beard, and long hippie hair be a dead give away (As this is the way many think f Jesus today) But no, they didn’t recognize him, until he showed them his HANDS AND FEET.

By now, you know that I am all about the allegorical meaning of scripture. So, after thinking about these words HANDS and FEET, I immediately began to dig up scriptures to explain what the HANDS and FEET represent.

Initially, I thought on the symbolism of our hands, and our feet. What our hands do, and feet do. Of course, my first thoughts were Hands (create, toil, strength, power etc) and FEET (walk, journey, standing) 

As I wrote earlier, you can simply look to the TEMPORAL to understand the SPIRITUAL…  Then you can go to the scripture to see if there is a witness of what you already, inherently know (Inherited Understanding) …  The TRUTH is WITHIN people. The WITNESS is without.

 So, I studied the scriptures and it made it beautifully clear what the HANDS and FEET are symbolic of.

The words Hands and Feet are used many times in scripture. The Pharisees gave Jesus a hard time for not washing his hands, Jesus washed the disciples feet. Peter asked for his hands, feet, and head to be washed…

Of Course, probably the most significant is that Chris’s HANDS AND FEET were pierced on the cross. So let us uncover what the HANDS and FEET SYMBOLICALLY represent for us ETERNALLY. This will lay the foundation for the great revelation to come.

FEET – The Symbolism

Romans 3:15 –  Their feet are swift to shed blood. (Man’s ways)

1 Cor 15:25 –    For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet (Man’s soul).

Proverbs 19:2 – Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.

Obviously, FEET don’t sin… they stink sometimes, but they don’t sin.

Psalm 119:59: I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.

Man’s WAYS are symbolic of FEET.

Proverbs 4:26: Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.

Here we see FEET are also symbolic of GOD’S WAYS.

Prov 1 15My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:  16For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.

Psalm 66:9 Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.

FEET = MAN’S OR GOD’S WAYS = MAN’S SOUL

We see here that FEET are the WAYS OF MAN/SOUL or GOD’S WAYS.

Now where this gets interesting is when you look at some of the scriptures that describe everything being put under the FEET of Christ (The WAYS OF CHRIST)

Romans 16  19For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.  20And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.

1 Corinthians 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

Everything, eventually is put beneath the ways of GOD.

Revelation 1:15 And his feet (man’s ways in Christ) like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace.

Isn’t it interesting, the picture of these FEET is like FINE BRASS, as if burned in a furnace… This is a beautiful picture of how the TRIALS OF OUR LIVES lead us into the Kingdom of Heaven. “Through MUCH tribulation enter we the Kingdom”… Look at how God chose to REFINE US.

Isaiah 48:10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.

No wonder the FEET (THE WAYS/THOUGHTS) look like they’ve been through hell and back… because they have.

LET’S MOVE OVER TO THE HANDS:

Genesis 3:22: And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

Genesis 31:29: It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt:

Nehemiah 1:10 Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.

Job 1:12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand.

Isaiah 50:2: Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver?

Side note here about that last verse… Ask yourself, Are God’s HAND (AUTHORITY/POWER) shortened that God cannot redeem? I say no… Millions of “Christians” disagree. They say God CANNOT save unless MAN lets him… That is something isn’t it? The creation tells the creator what the Creator can and cannot do… Oh WELLLLLLLL! Moving on.

Mark 14:62: And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

Deuteronomy 4:28: And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, (CREATIONS)

Psalm 8:6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: (GODS WORKS/AUTHORITY/CREATIONS)

Okay by now, you should be able to understand, we don’t have to go far to see that HANDS AND FEET can be understood by simply looking at the attributes of literal hands and feet, AND by searching the scriptures to give a witness to those sticklers who think the scriptures and the end all be all or everything that is God. Question for you though? What bible did Abraham, Jacob, Isaac, Moses, Joseph, etc etc read?… ahhhh moving on.

HANDS are symbolic of (Creations/Works/Authority/Power)

FEET are symbolic of (Ways, Thinking, Nature)

If you can receive it, THIS is how CHRIST IS KNOWN. Not by looking at some temporal, physical, literal, HANDS and FEET… But by looking upon the Authority, Works, Thoughts, Nature, Power, And Creations of the SPIRIT WITHIN.

“CHRIST IN YOU, the HOPE of GLORY”

So the account in LUKE must also be seen with different eyes.

Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

What I am now going to attempt to do is show you that this is an allegorical telling of how CHRIST appears TO US, IN US, AMONG US, not in literal terms, but in spiritual.

Paul tells us, we are to know NO MAN AFTER THE FLESH but after the SPIRIT.

Now pay attention, I don’t want you to miss this. THE KEY WORD HERE IS … SPIRIT.

John 4:24: God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

AND

1 John 4:12: No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

Did you catch that? … YOU CAN’T LITERALLY SEE SPIRIT, you can ONLY UNDERSTAND IT (SEE/PERCIEVE)

So what is SPIRIT? Well, God is SPIRIT. Jesus said, HIS WORDS are SPIRIT. SPIRIT cannot be seen, held, touched, tasted, smelled, SPIRIT is ETERNAL not TEMPORAL as carnal man sees and believes without, Christ is WITHIN.

What I am getting at here people is a NEW UNDERSTANDING of what this verse means.

Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

You see, we have been taught that Jesus physically appears to his disciples, and says look at my literal hands, touch them, look at my feet… YOU SEE I’m FLESH AND BONE like YOU… BUT!!!!!! That is NOT what is going on here. It is actually the opposite.

When CHRIST appeared to the disciples the reason they were so scared, was they FINALLY were being taught, that JESUS was not to appear OUTSIDE of them, but IN THEM, AS THEM…

They believed Jesus to have literal Flesh and Bones, and to be separate from them. But the revelation of CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of Glory is what is being dealt with here.

Jesus prayed, “That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.”

It’s all about CHRIST IN YOU people. When Judas, not Iscariot asked Jesus how he will appear to them after his “literal” death… Jesus did not say, I’m going show up, rip off my sandals and show you all my hands and feet, then you’ll know I rose from the dead. <– Insert Laugh here please. 🙂

No, that is not what Jesus said. He said, in JOHN 14 … wait for it, wait for it, people….

 23Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Jesus said, he will appear WITHIN US when we KEEPS HIS WORDS. When we understand the TRUTH Christ appears WITHIN. This is how we will know Jesus. Not after the Flesh (carnal understanding, temporal belief) as Paul said, but after the SPIRIT (the unseen TRUTH OF GOD).  So, let’s look at that passage in Luke again, and then interpret what is REALLY being said.

Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

When we interpret these symbols to be what they be spiritually, this is what we begin to see and understand.

Behold my works, truth, nature, and wisdom, that is I, handle me and understand, because a SPIRIT does NOT have flesh and bone as you THINK “see” I have.

For years, we have been taught the exact opposite of what is true about this passage. Man always takes the things of God and turns it into what he SEES, HEARS, TOUCHES, TASTES, OR SMELLS. Man takes the ETERNAL things of God and believes them to be TEMPORAL.

But here, Jesus is saying, I AM NOT A TEMPORAL BEING as you THINK ME TO BE.

Now here is the REALLY COOL part. Jesus says, BEHOLD MY HANDS AND FEET… This is what he uses to show his disciples where, and who, Christ IS…

And who are the HANDS AND FEET of Christ again?

1 Corinthians 12:15: If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?

In other words people, WE ARE THE HANDS AND FEET of CHRIST. We are the BODY OF CHRIST, and OUR BONES (SOULS) are NOT BROKEN after the CROSS (overcoming death, moving from ignorance to truth).

This is why they were terrified, they understood, who Christ becomes… THEM.

1 Corinthians 13:12: For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

And when you KNOW as you are KNOWN PEOPLE. You know Yourself!

Knock and the doors open people. There is more to YOU THAN YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD.

“Wake up Sleeper Thou That Sleepest, and Let Christ Give You Rest!”

    Thank you for this also. It is true! We are the hands and feet of Christ. Keep going, you are making a difference!

    Galatians 2:20
    20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

    Great post, Jacob!!! Talk about Gettin Real… man, you are letting it all hang out!!!! But, that is what the Body….has not been able to do, and you are the cutting edge, that God is using to tear down that very thick wall of division, that seperates us from the humans….around us. We are all flesh and blood, and we all hurt, we mess up, we get fed up, and hopefully, thru it all, we will Get UP……… and shake off the things that hurt, that would hinder us or stop us completely…and we keep going. Putting one foot in front of the other…. Soldier on.. my friend… Soldier On.

    Hey Jacob! I never really looked at the hands and feet or the bones in relation to the souls of men, though I’ve come to see that when Jesus said: “a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have” that, spiritually, he was referring His many-membered body, made up of men, that we are “of His flesh and of His bone” (Eph 5:30). So, Interesting take! Gonna have to look at that again. 🙂

    Ever look at the description of Jesus’ feet as being “like fine brass, as if they burn in a furnace” in relation to the fact that Jesus said: “I am come to send fire on the earth” and the earth (where judgment takes place) is His “footstool”? Pretty cool study there, too!! Especially when it comes to the fact that: “The way of LIFE IS ABOVE to the wise, that he may depart from HELL BENEATH”.

    I know you said you don’t read other people’s stuff that much (neither do I, so I hope you feel honored… ROFL) but here’s one on my shorter studies on it, if you want to take a peek. 🙂 I was blown away when I saw those amazing connections and finally understood that “NOW is the judgment of this world” and “Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed IN THE EARTH: much more the wicked and the sinner”.

    The Lord is truly GOOD!!!

  8. Vicki Rae January 2, 2012 / 3:54 AM

    I have a question, I was married for 11 yrs to a man whos family were parkers from Oaklahoma, his grandmothers aunt was Bonnie Parker. His mother and grandmother called themselves high priest witches and trained Lloyd up to be a master in SF, CA church. but he ran from them at 18, he wanted to know about the Lord, he had, terrible battles to control his affections and out bursts on others, I heard things and saw things, so did my children, the attacks were aweful, and we saw spiritual beings, that look like people sometimes, other times an evil white headed head with red eyes floated across and my son would scream so loud, they would stomp thru the house and slam doors and drawers. We crushed and burnes all the pottery that lloyds mom made for us, she had spiritual guides of indians, her dad was apache. Lloyd had two evil spirits attached to him, and I knew them by name, but they could only speak thru lloyd when he was sound asleep after driving truck for 10 hours, he was exhausted and past out, then he would come alive and it was them speaking and using his body. When a head would float across the room, I could only hear it speak when it would pass thru me. We divorced, lloyd was affraid I would be killed, he could not control them, I was beaten all the time and called horrable names and accused of all kinds of things, sometimes for reading the bible and I was home alone, no one knew I was reading it. When I remarried someone else and had a new life, I got held down several times, and couldn’t move or speak or scream, then it attacked Curtis and did the same to him, also in the moonlight on the bed I would see an impression in the bed of a man laying there on his side facing me. When I worked mental health for 3 yrs i had to quit because of the spiritual evil attached to the patiences effected me. I could hear them speaking but their lips werent moving, and they were drawn to me and liked me, but what was in them couldn’t bear it anymore. This was 1984-2003. Lloyd got involved in a assemblies of God crusaders, he would help them rebuk the evil spirits in people, by getting the name of the demon, and that was Lloyds job to get the name, then the others would exercise the spirit out. lloyd had me meet a guy they helped, when I walked over and shook his hand, I walked back to lloyd and said satan can’t cast out satan, then two mos later this guy was back selling drugs. Living waters fellowship wanted me to lay hands on people because of my discernment, I refused, I felt something was wrong with what was going on, then we had the wine and bread service, the pastors wife had me go forward, I grabbed a piece of the bread and then went to dunk it in the wine/juice something grabbed ahold of me and an invisble fight proceeded and would not let me do it, the pastors wife grabbed my hand to help me and she felt the fight, then I yelled DAM, and it stopped and i dunk it and ate and went and sat down. That church had too much evil spirits in it, I could not go there anymore. I could not believe i yelled DAM infront of that service but it made the unseen fighting stop, and it freed me. My question is, since I have seen spirits on the outside of me, alive and dead, and I can discern them in others, I can hear others speak from within them at times, without their lips moving, I have been physically touched by them, so here is seen, they touch me, hear, feel them, my senses. all of this is outside of me, But I know God is in Jesus and Jesus is in me, the whole dity lives inside of me, For God is Spirit, and when God speaks to me, He speaks from within, and one time Gabreil came to me, from inside, I was tired and dosing off, and all of a sudden I had a dream, not a good one , one trying to draw me in using a baby crying, then all of a sudden, I heard within me, Gabriel, Gabriel, announing his name to me, who he was, then he said”Treachery, treachery” and then he was gone. Lloyd was trying to get me back, hes loved me since he was 15 yrs old, but with the violence he had and the jealousy he had over me,I could never go back, or I’d probaby be killed. What was inside of him hated me and me reading the word and learning, I was always at the bible store trying to find books to help me and lloyd, I wish we had these computers back then. The Calvary baptist and the assembly of God could not help us, it made him worse ans the attacks got worse, being beat up for reading the bible and I was home alone, no one knew. I am only alive today because of the hand of God on me, I am a surviver. So if everything is on the inside spiritually, how are these evil spirits manifested on the outside of people? with mans senses perceiving them? and they hold you down and have your voice box too, My husband rt now Joe a good man, his wife died and she got into the rikki suff and then Joe saw a women in his home and he got held down so many times he couldn’t count them and he didn’t know who to go to to ask til we met and I was able to tell him why it happened, that his wife brought all that into the house and because he loved the Lord they hated him and attacked him. We met in 07 and married. Now i study and go deeper and deeper in the word. I would like more insight into this, what is manifested from what I am understanding lately comes from the spiritual first, it is within then without. So what we have experienced in the past, is manifested from within others? an attacks us? Does it come from within, then manifested, then attacks? Everything manifested comes from within first? I know Lloyd acted on his thoughts and believed them, he couldn’t control his thoughts any more, he gave into them for yrs, and he was too tired and exhausted he would tell me, it wore him out.

    Jacob… He (Christ) made us bone of his bones and flesh of His flesh. This means that He made us inside: His own body when he resurrected, and for this included to all of us IN HIS RESURRECTED BODY!. When His flesh got glorified, (HIS FLESHY BODY GOT TRANSFORMED INTO INCORRUPTIBLE OR into a SPIRITUAL BODY) and he gave us “HIS OWN” glorified body. My hope every day is to be in that body of glory that “I and we all now have”. Our fleshy fallen bodies are not our true body (is death at truth by action of His glorified body). I believe yes they are bones and flesh also in heavens but in a GLORIFIED STATE. This is the difference between resurrection or not resurrection becuase our fleshes must be resurrected of get alive by action of the glorified life. Blessings! . This may not denay what you are traying to explain I think, but give an explanation of the bones and flesh of Jesús and His resurerection state. Jesús had when was in this realm flesh and bones and resurrected with them!
