Non-Denominational/Jesus Resurrection


Hello Brother,

Since you're an expert, could you please explain why christendom churches don't believe that Jesus was made alive in the "SPIRIT" yet in "FLESH"???? please consider:

“. . .Why, even Christ died once for all time concerning sins, a righteous [person] for unrighteous ones, that he might lead YOU to God, he being put to death in the flesh, but being made alive in the spirit. . .” (1 Peter 3:18)

"The first man Adam became a living soul.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit" (1 Corinthians 15:45)

■See ?? JESUS "BECAME" a life-giving "SPIRIT" then how come HE IS NOT??? OK so for example he is made alive in the "FLESH"........So where is JESUS right now since "FLESH" and blood cannot inherit the KINGDOM OF GOD?????

“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.” (1 Corinthians 15) (KJV)

■ hope to see this in public...

Looking forward...

Kind Regards

Hi Kenny,

Thanks for this great question.  You are correct that Jesus rose in Spirit, but He also rose in Body and proved it by having Thomas touch him... and eating with them... these are things Spirits cannot do.

Luke 24:36–43 (AV)
36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. 38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 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. 40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. 41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? 42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. 43 And he took it, and did eat before them.

You can't mistake this... Jesus was refuting that He was only risen in Spirit... He had flesh and bones...

I hope that this helps you.

I am very sorry for my late response.

In Christ
Pastor Don
