CLOTHED WITH POWER?
This work is independent of any existing religions denomination, church, organisation or group.
The very last time Jesus spoke to his disciples after his resurrection,
spoke to you while I
was with you, that all things written in the law of Moses and in the
Prophets and Psalms about me must be fulfilled. He then opened
up their minds to fully grasp the meaning of the
Scriptures, and said to them: It is written it will occur this way; the Christ will suffer and
rise from the dead on the third day, (then) on the
basis of his name 'a change of heart for the reversal of sin
would be preached in all nations starting from
Jerusalem, you are to
be witnesses of these things. Look!
I am sending to you
that which is promised by my Father. You, live in this
city until you
become clothed with power from on high.”
Luke 24:44-49 Westcott & Hort.
The last two things Jesus did was, to open his disciples' minds to
understand the scriptural prophecies that he had fulfilled and promise them a covering or clothing
of special power to come from heaven. This unique power elevated them to God's higher level as His 'Sons', even though
their bodies still carried inherited Adam deficiency. The
'power' was purchased from God by the value of Christ's compensating ransom sacrifice, it was able to buy a reversal of Adamic sin and forgiveness of personal sins. This power acts like
a cloaking or covering; masked their
inherited Adamic substandard condition from
blotted out by Jesus' compensating and re-balancing ransom. "Through one man sin entered
into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread
to all men because they had all sinned. Death ruled as
king from Adam down. For as in Adam all are
dying, so also in the Christ all will be made alive” Rom
now Christ has been raised up from the dead, the
first fruits of those who have fallen asleep [in death]. For since
death is through a man, resurrection of the dead is also
through a man. For as in Adam all are dying, so also in the Christ all
can be made alive" 1 Cor 15:20-22.
[Bible definition of SIN (hamartia) falling below Gods standard, imperfect, substandard.]
'cloaking device' is provided to each of the Kingdom
recruits. When covered by this 'cloak', it is as if they had
died and were 'born again', neutralising the effects of the
Adamic and personal sin. According to Romans 6:7, "For
he who has died has been acquitted from sin". Death
acquits a person of his personal and
inherited sin or imperfections. So, by applying this
they 'die' by being baptised into Christ's death and are
reborn and so, are acquitted of
all accountability to inherited and personal sin. They
are bought an immediate rebirth and so decontaminated of
sin, which qualifies and enables them to be adopted as Sons of
God. Christ alleviated their
Adamic and personal sin by an application of power from the value of his ransom sacrifice.
By the sacrificing of his perfect human life, Jesus purchased
massive credit with God. Before their inherited Adam death
disease kills these selected recruits, they receive
an application of accredited power and are upgraded to an
imputed higher standard that is required for admission into God's
family as His Sons. Acquitted of the inherited sin and death
disease, each of them can now, in the same way as Jesus sacrifice their
'new' clean sin-free lives as true Sons of God. Their new
born lives carry a credit value on their
own merits. It is why they, like Jesus, are killed off or die illegally in the service of God, so the value of their clean sacrificed lives can also claim and be
granted accredited power on the alter of God.
Toward the end of the generation of the first
century, this clothing or
arrangement came to an end, when the last born again
Sons illegally died.
Since then, there have been no
others. The scriptures inform us there will yet be a
second recruitment period of born again Sons of
God at the beginning of Christ's second presence. It is then we will see further 'Sons of God'
again walk the earth, having received the reactivation of this cloaking arrangement. New information on the time for the start of Christ's second presence has now become available.
