Heaven's Historical Body 156

Across Time

Rock OutcropThe Body of Christ is part of history and can never be separated from it. Just as an outcrop on a mountain may be an example of the rock beneath, so the Body of Christ on earth is only a small part of Heaven's historical body across the ages. She is united and joined historically from the past to the present to the future by Christ himself. Jesus as the head holds this historical body across time and is bound together by God himself. Jesus is with us as Christians not just in this life, but also into Heaven. We are sustained even through death by the prospect of belonging to the future body. Philippians 3.17-21 says, "Just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven."

With You Always

G. Campbell Morgan (1863 - 1945)G. Campbell Morgan (1863-1945 AD) read Christ's Great Commission to a devout Christian lady, "I am with you always, even to the end of the age" he said, then added, "that's a great promise." With a twinkle in her eye the lady replied, "Dr. Morgan, that's not a promise, that's reality." Jesus in reality was there at the beginning of Creation and he is with us now.✞
