sown in dishonor, raised in glory

poster fallen leaves and water drops

God sows the good seed…satan sows the evil seed…God sows Christ IN us, His seed is a new creation, Christ is th planting of th Lord in us…

it is Christ who is sown in dishonor (us) and we who are raised in glory (Christ)

Who will render to every man according to his deeds [work, toil, act, deed]: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory & honour & immortality, eternal life: [Christ in us] But to them that are contentious, & dont obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation & wrath, [adam, th old man, th unrenewed mind] Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that does evil, of the Jew [new creation in Christ, born of th Spirit, by promise not works] first, and also of the Gentile [the redeemed of the Lord, once a slave to sin but is now a slave of righteousness; th natural mind renewed to become th mind of Christ; once strangers now grafted into the tree of life]; But glory, honour, & peace, to every man that works good, to the Jew [new creation] first, & also to the Gentile [redeemed, adopted and grafted into th tree of life]: For there is no respect of persons with God. Romans 2:6-11

tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man that does evil…

When the righteous (new creation, renewed mind) are in authority (Christ), the people (redeemed) rejoice: but when the wicked (old man, unrenewed mind) bears rule, the people (redeemed) mourn. Proverbs 29:2

th Lord told me years ago, that ppl are either in authority (in Christ) or in rebellion (in sin, adam)…ppl have no authority of their own so cant claim that God put them in authority apart from Christ…theres no such authority over men except God’s and any man who claims to have ‘authority’ over ppl or to exercise ‘power’ over ppl is lying and is in rebellion to God…wickedness is from satan and all such rebellion is an overt act of satan against God…and also…that th stones and thorns are in th unrenewed mind of th dead adam, but th good soil is th renewed mind–th mind of Christ…

a dog returns to his vomit –perfect example of th unrenewed mind…

out of th abundance of the heart (th mind of man), th mouth speaks…let this mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus…which is th renewed (raised from th dead) mind …

this proverb about th righteous and wicked isnt talkin about ppl bein ruled over by other ppl…its about bein in Christ and wherever Christ lives–IN US, we rejoice and wherever sin lives–IN US, we mourn…course th Spirit of God NEVER loses th war or any battle in it… 🙂 so our hope is great…

th natural man (unrenewed [dead] mind of adam; th old man) dont rejoice when Christ rules bc th natural man cant see Christ or recieve Christ…th natural man cant receive the thangs of God…

and as we, th new creations in Christ, experience more and more victory (over th old man) in Christ, which is to decrease in Him and Christ lives, we rejoice…but wherever th old man rules, we mourn…

this isnt about other ppl ruling over us, whether th world calls em righteous or not..its about th war between flesh and Spirit…where Christ conqueres sin and death IN us and He lives …

that which i wanna do i dont do and that which i dont wanna do , i do…who shall deliver me from this body of death…

this is th complaint of flesh — th unrenewed mind (as a man thinks so is he) —th old man –now bought and paid fa and serving Christ…dead flesh (th soul, th unrenewed mind) dont wanna serve Christ…but Christ conquers us and puts down the flesh and Christ is raised FROM THE DEAD, a Spirit man (th new heart of flesh from God, living flesh, not the dead flesh of adam)…and th old man now serves this new creation in Christ, bein led in peace by the Spirit of God into all truth, having th mind (renewed) of Christ and not th natural adamic mind…

and so we are all thangs…

  • we are rightful heirs of th Kingdom of God and sons of th Father bc of teh new birth, born into the Kingdom by the Spirit of God…and this is th new creation…
  • we are slaves redeemed by th blood of th Lamb, bougtht wit a high price –once slaves to sin (satan, th old man, th unrenewed mind) we are now slaves of righteousness (Christ, th renewed mind of Christ, th new creation)…sown in dishonor (us), raised in glory (Christ)
  • we are adopted into the family of God, being grafted into th true vine, Jesus Christ, and once were strangers but are now brought into the covenant of peace…sown in corruption (us), raised in incorruption (Christ)

and we are becoming that blessed man (Christ)

…whos feet dont walk after th counsel of th ungodly (our counselor is teh Holy Spirit of God), who dont stand in th way of sinners (we stand on the Word of God, solid rock) and who dont sit in th seat of th scornful (we are seated with Christ in heavenly places)

bc we are being conformed to Him, Christ Jesus, who did not walk stand or sit in any way but th Father’s and who is seated at the right hand of th Father…we are being conformed to the image of Christ Jesus, the sinless, perfect Son of God…

we have th mind of Christ, renewed (sown in weakness [us] , raised in power [Christ])…and th mind that was in Christ Jesus rules th redeemed slave & th slave now serves righteousness and not sin…

Christ came fa ALL of His…th slave is redeemed, the stranger is adopted, the dead is raised, and th old man gives way to th new creation born of th Spirit of God…and all of this is EACH of us…

instead of th new creation being born of a woman, its born of th Spirit of God, sown in dishonor (th old man) but raised in glory (Christ) and as th kernel of wheat falls and dies to produce many, so th old man gives way to the new creation…not birthing th new creation, but by falling offa it…we takin off corruption and puttin on incorruption; takin off mortality and puttin on immortality…th hidden man of th heart being made manifest…

neither jew nor gentile, male nor female, bond nor slave, rich nor poor be in Christ…but all are ONE in Christ…

    Love that about (Christ) being sown in dishonor (us) and raised in glory (Christ in us).. u know, I always saw 1 Cor 15 as the fleshly resurrection that is yet to come.. but.. while that may be true about the outward transformation.. BUT the outward only reveals what is inward first.. we are risen in Christ in heavenly places now.. crucified to the world, buried in Him and raised in Him… just as Jesus said, He who believes in me shall never die.. blessed and holy is he who hath part in the first resurrection, and they will be kings and priests, and reign with Christ.. we are the royal (kings) priesthood (priests). We are truly blessed… as slaves of righteousness, sons and heirs, and as the adorned bride..
