SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In this next scripture, we want to show that there is a difference between God’s gift and the sin of one man. After the one sin, came the judgment of “Guilty”; but after so many sins, comes the undeserved gift of “Not Guilty!” Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings; Also for Adam and his wife the LORD God made tunics of skin, and clothed them. Genesis 3: 7, 21 NKJV
CLOTHED – I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God, For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. Isaiah 61: 10 NIV
1 Corinthians 5: 2-5 – And now we sigh, so great is our desire that our home which comes from heaven should be put on over us; by being clothed with it we shall not be without a body. While we live in this earthly tent, we groan with a feeling of oppression; it is not that we want to get rid of our earthly body, but that we want to have the heavenly one put on over us, so that what is mortal will be transformed by life. God is the one who has prepared us for this change, and he gave us his Spirit as the guarantee of all that he has in store for us. GNT
Atonement – For it is not by hearing the Law that people are put right with God, but by doing what the Law commands. The Gentiles do not have the Law; but whenever they do by instinct what the Law commands, they are their own law, even though they do not have the Law. Their conduct shows that what the Law commands is written in their hearts. Their consciences also show that this is true, since their thoughts sometimes accuse them and sometimes defends them. And so, according to the Good News I preach, this is how it will be on that Day when God through Jesus Christ will judge the secret thoughts of all.
