On Matthew 19:28 re-creation and Christ as “Last Adam”…
(Matthew 19:28) Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, In the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down upon his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also yourselves sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
(1 Corinthians 15:22) For just as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive.
(1 Corinthians 15:44-45) It is sown a physical body, it is raised up a spiritual body. If there is a physical body, there is also a spiritual one. 45 It is even so written: “The first man Adam became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
…or are you merely saying that heaven and earth are combined, all being the spiritual domain of God. I know paradise always refers to heaven, but also has flowing water and the trees of life, like the Garden of Eden, so are you saying we will live basically in another dimension of a glorified physical / spiritual bodies, perhaps as Adam and Eve once had, not even realizing they were naked and could talk directly with God, in the breezy part of the day.
however I can see this after the millennial reign when the tabernacle of God is with mankind and he will be with them, but during the Great Tribulation this does not exist, or is serving God and his sanctuary a spiritual condition? I guess I am asking you to restated a different way. So I can understand it better.
Yes I think you have the idea, since what was lost in Eden is clearly the next recorded events after the creation accounts. So God has not changed purpose as stated in those first two chapters directly (Gen1:26-28) or by the context. It is Satan and now mankind in the Adamic sin and subsequent seemingly endless error that came from that one single event that eventually both the woman and the man joined into before mankind came into existence through them. Had the death curse been enacted in that single day none of us would be here. So in Genesis 3:14-17 is the real issue of a curse and no longer a blessing (Rev22:3b), and the solution in the “woman’s” seed to come forth in time. We also see the opposing “seed”, and the “ground” (Gen3:17; 12:3) context into which those seed lineages come forth.
Revelation 6:12-8:1 is all sixth seal completion details leading to the seventh seal and full seven trumpet explanation of the “kingdom of the world” recovery. Meaning the Revelation 6:12-17 parallel of Matthew 24:29-31 events of the near future are the Christ arrival event not to end the world of rival sovereigns, but to complete the groups stated in the fifth seal (Rev6:9-11), as that can apply to anointed and earth family sheep. The sixth seal is the event that leads to a full number 144000 gathered as per Revelation 7 detail, and further, a “great crowd” of “harvest of the earth” earth sheep, because God is no vacating planet Earth, He is arriving with Christ, so to speak, to begin what that “seed” provides for humans. Christ came to earth as a man with the restorative human perfection for the recovery of mankind into “last Adam” as that sacrifice is a whole person sacrifice, and gift (Heb8-10). The atonement is what provides the salvation power to provide the time to perfect mankind into Christ’s form as a man, and why the entire application of his sacrifice is more than just atonement, for perfected children of God like Adam and the woman were, as Christ was and maintained, no longer require atonement.
The objective is actually sinless perfect human beings to be in the form of perfect human being prior to the fall, as Christ provided that perfection within his sacrificial entirety, as human, that will be applied as human, and that is why he became perfect human, and why he is called second Adam, he is what all mankind will be based upon, and as Eternal Father why his Bride is fruitful as also “Eve’s” replacement. The Genesis 3 curses are removed in Revelation 22:1-3, Adam and Eve as human being will be completely removed from existence, that is what that curse ultimately entails, and all traces of them must be removed from mankind by way of Christ and the Bride as being fruitful, and applying that perfection present in Christ’s access to a human sacrifice that is perfect, and a whole human being not just atonement, for such final purpose.
Then yes, after the final Satanic test a true tested state of perfection will exist, and as God’s family and his “image” in humans as originally stated in Gen1:26-28, the blessing is restored. And it is in God’s family in Christ’s “last Adamic” form, so humans today have no idea what that true perfection is actually like and we can only speculate how it will affect all things forever. God did not create mankind to die. Sovereign usurpation of God’s rule and sin in it is why man dies. Disobedience to God is death, plainly stated in Eden, plainly proven in Christ’s obedience meeting divine approval. Obedience to God is life, and why Satan, the dead one, will try to ply his issues a final time, because his disobedient first pattern is the course of human death as the original humans did join that rebellion. Thus as all mankind that proves faithful will of course understand the drawn out process that has occurred to get this restoration, obedience to God as “all things to everyone”, will be perfectly understood as life preserving. Since only Christ achieved that tested state of perfect obedience, we can only surmise what it might mean as far as “trees of life” as God will do just what He said he will do on planet Earth, and Adam never did reach that “tree of life” that was in that garden for obviously some reason.
The nice thing is Christ can never be compromised. The “second man out of heaven” perfection is forever for all wanting it. The systemically spreading death state present in Adam and Eve is not possible in Christ as “last Adam”, so sin can be removed pointally, not affecting the totality of the Earth life system, as Adam’s sin is killing the whole planet, albeit slowly, but surely. This is how even Abel and ages of man prior to Noah can also be recovered, as well as the entirety of all tings lost in the flood and after, as that too is a divine collection not subject to an arrogant angel’s judgment in Satan, who accessed such authority by Adam and Eve’s express permission by disobedience. And that opened the entire life system up for further Satanic hatred and death, operating at angelic levels of intellect and understanding, through Adam’s “blessing” hierarchy at Genesis 1:26-28 turned into a death curse, so the whole Earth planetary life system is now compromised for all kinds of problems, error and more and more death and “ruining the earth”, a key removal in Revelation 11:15-18.
The entire fantasy that God is abandoning His opriginal purpose, is of course present in mankind and religions that are ultimately under the extermely masterful control of Satan to conceal the truth Earth will be in the exact condition of glorified perfection GOD stated, and Satan will just be forgotten ashes:
(Ezekiel 28:18-19) And I shall make you ashes upon the earth before the eyes of all those seeing you. 19 As for all those knowing you among the peoples, they will certainly stare in amazement at you. Sudden terrors are what you must become, and you will be no more to time indefinite.”’”
It is just a symbol that God is perfectly capable of exterminating his enemies no matter to him if they are hateful angels.
(Deuteronomy 7:9-10) And you well know that Jehovah your God is the [true] God, the faithful God, keeping covenant and loving-kindness in the case of those who love him and those who keep his commandments to a thousand generations, 10 but repaying to his face the one who hates him by destroying him. He will not hesitate toward the one who hates him; he will repay him to his face.
It is just this accounting of course takes a little time, but in time it is certain. The problem is sin causing death, after that is removed God’s originl purpose will resume perfectly “God’s will done on earth” clearly stated to mankind when they were in a perfect “image” of God:
(Genesis 1:26-28) And God went on to say: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every moving animal that is moving upon the earth.” 27 And God proceeded to create the man in his image, in God’s image he created him; male and female he created them. 28 Further, God blessed them and God said to them: “Be fruitful and become many and fill the earth and subdue it, and have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and every living creature that is moving upon the earth.”
No way can God simply act as if none of that was stated before angels, man and all creation. And further it is not just humans who are alive here on this planet and all the foundational life predates human existence by many years, so God’s senior life forms are also important to Him who does not create simply for the whim of demons and men to think they can overpower God’s express will for Earth and ALL life here. Every last detail of that will of God will take place, the choice before all man will be made in time as to go along with God’s will here, or perish resisting it, but it will not take forever to get that issue squared away at which time all rebels against God’s sovereignty can be removed with Satan and the demons the core disobedience body. It will occur because God is Almighty and is in ultimate power in all His creation, He is merely being patient and doing it as stated in Genesis 3:15 so all who are willing can be recovered in perfection as the goal, and God cannot have a creation withheld from him. It is merely up to us to obey or not, and that must be made very clear because it is the human realm that needs to square away this divine sovereignty issue completely, and that is where it was raised by Satan – here on Earth before man – and that is where it must be resolved, by mankind just like Christ did here as well, on Earth, as a perfect man who maintained that perfection. That example is why Christ also became man as an example for now, into and thru the end of the 1000 years, that obedience to God is life. Period. Christ’s human example has far greater meaning than is commonly realized. The human realm must face the issue as well, and in time in perfection for those who do achieve that state.
Everything else is really just putting off the inevitable, and the more accurately informed we are, the better, and hence why Christ removes the demons first, and gives 1000 years of perfect instruction to prepare to resolve this issue permanently as far as Satan’s lies and claims, himself the first sinner ever.
