Parousia: Abiding Presence


Abiding Presence:    


1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless to the coming [literal: abiding presence] of our Lord Jesus Christ.



Let us first establish that God does all the work.  Righteousness and Holiness are Free Gifts (Grace) from God.  They are part of salvation. Even the faith that gives access to Grace is a Free Gift from God--it is God's faith, not our own.    

Gods Way understood

Wisdom moves from taking spiritual ground from the enemy to holding ground and finally moving on to total victory. 

Wisdom goes from doing right things right by God's Spirit to being set free from bondage and entering into ever-increasing stability of mind and action, and then going on to final complete fulfillment, which is total redemption.

Wisdom is the principle thing, therefore get wisdom.  (Prov 4:7) The Scripture tells us that God has made Christ to be Wisdom to us.  Christ is Wisdom.  Without Christ, there is no Wisdom.  Not only this, but from a practical standpoint, wisdom consists of righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. (1Cor 1:30) Jesus is the Way.  Righteousness, sanctification, and redemption are the three parts of the Way that build on each other. 

The concepts of Righteousness, Sanctification, and Redemption have been distorted.  Follow the links below to understand what God is doing in this age.    

  1. Righteousness is in the moment.  Righteousness is the work that God does through you by His faith and grace. 
  3. Sanctification is progressive.  By the righteousness that God does through you, He changes what you are, which is sanctification.  Sanctification or holiness is the forming of Christ fully in you.  The battle is now mainly for the mind. Holiness is stability and is what you are becoming. 
  5. Redemption is the fullness of having Christ in you and you being in Christ, in His Body.  It cannot be separated from the Body of Christ of Christ the Head.  When it is complete, it is the full maturity and unity of the Body of Christ and Christ, the Head of the Body.

God has a process to have us grow up into Christ. God's way is through the Church, the true Body of Christ. God's process is by the Holy Spirit. It is by the free gift of wisdom.

The Church is both the mechanism by which God does this work and the finishing of the work.  He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name.  Revelation 3:12
