Inspiration behind the Design:
The underlining verses of this design come from 1 Corinthians 15: “ 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.” The other verse I use for inspiration is 1 John 4:17 that says “just as Jesus is in heaven so are we in this world.”
As the verses above say, those who are of heaven (in Christ) are just as the heavenly man (verse 48 and 49 and 1 john 4:17). What is the essence of the heavenly man? Verse 45 says the second Adam which is the last Adam, which is Christ is a LIFE-GIVING SPIRIT! I have to use capitals because I am so excited by what that means! A LIFE-GIVING SPIRIT! That is one of the coolest things in the bible to me. As we receive this into our faith and belief system and our consciousness we will come to understand of what it means and move in it! What is Resurrection? Life-giving… What was jesus great commission to us? Raise the dead… So if we are called to raise the dead aren’t we called to be life-giving people? Yes! But not only that! As we bear the very essence of the heavenly second Adam (Christ) our very spirit brings life! Woah! In giving life, we set out to remove every form of death. What does this look like at the fullness of the end of the age? It looks like creation responding to our very being. The dead come back to life simply by being in our presence. You walk through a hospital and all the sick become healthy, you walk through a garden of dead flowers and they spring back to life! THIS IS THE GOSPEL! NO DEATH. ONLY LIFE.
