Baptism of the Dead - Part 2 (1st Corinthians 15:29)
The First Resurrection is the re-ingeneration of those who accept Jesus Christ as their medium of salvation
To find flawlessness is one thing, but to find blamelessness is another. Interestingly, a person can receive blamelessness without it being a reckoning of earned merit or a due self-earned indemnification of compensation. What does that have to do with the Baptism of the Dead? Everything that is significant to the subject. Why believe or practise the Baptism of the Dead if it is a waste of effort – a paste not put?
When I speak of the Baptism of the Dead, I am particularly referring to a person who has had a physical body death but not a disposition for their spirit. At some point everyone will become reconciled either for eternal death or for eternal life. There is, of course, pre-body-death reconciliation which is what many churches minister.
What I the Manifester am emphasizing in this blog is reconciliation after physical body death. But I am not saying by any means that after death reconciliation is superior to pre-death reconciliation. I am merely revealing the everlasting Love of God. There is a wonderful beauty in “counting those things that are not as though they are”, and that is exactly the story of after death reconciliation (compare Romans 4:17 KJV).
The First Resurrection is the re-ingeneration of those who accept Jesus Christ as their medium of salvation. They are those who become “first born”. They belong to the Ox head ministry (compare Malachi 4:2 and Revelation 4:7 KJV). The Ox head is the symbol for the Hebrew first letter of the Alphabet and means “one thousand” and manifold thousands as a plural of one (compare Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary Concordance #504-505). So then, the Alpha Jesus Christ, who is the headstone, equals the day of Christ symbolized numerically by a thousand years. All First Born, First Resurrection, persons are Alpha/Aleph Christfold/thousandfold persons. These are Abraham Bosom Covenant people chosen to blamelessness and to enter reingeneration.
Even though you cannot earn blamelessness, due to guilt, you can receive blamelessness as reckoned of grace because by justification through Jesus Christ, your faith is counted as acts of righteousness (Romans 4:3-5 KJV).
This Baptism of the Dead message is very important, for it encloses a mystery and revelation long misunderstood. Please read and note Isaiah 26:19 KJV and Revelation 14:13 KJV. There is an immunity offered to the live and the dead; stagger not at such an offer for the Bible says: ” Blessed is the person unto whom the Lord imputeth not the iniquity of sin” (compare Psalms 32:2 and Romans 4:3-8 KJV; also 2 Corinthians 5:19 KJV).
The Bible in 1 John 5:14-17 KJV says that persons in Christ have the right to ask for any request including the giving of life to another person, but should not ask for the forgiveness of blasphemy against the Holy Ghost which is an act of spiritual death.
Paul asks the question…..Why should believers stand in jeopardy every hour about the Baptism of the Dead? If believers cannot effect a reingeneration of the dead through Jesus Christ, the whole given reality of the Baptism of the Dead would be in vain (compare 1 Corinthians 15:29-30 MIV).
The Bible says that every person who dies will be judged for his/her life before being appointed to another life (reingenerated): many ministers have made this Scripture to say that a man can only die one time and then must face the Judgement Day. This is contrary to the original Bible text (such as inappropriate use of a definite article) and fails in the face of everyone that Jesus raised from the dead, not to mention miles of other points, such as that Jesus by offering His own blood and life needed to only do that once instead of like other priests who used animal sacrifices which could not provide eternal consequences (compare Hebrews 9:27 KJV). The error applied is the interpetation…that if a person lived more than one life, Christ would have to keep dying over and over again for that person’s salvation. This view is so ignorant that Mr. Stupid applauds each time he hears it! The whole beauty of an eternal act is missed as compared to the temporal acts of priests using animal sacrifices.
The Bible says every person will get a time and a chance (compare Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV). Not just “a chance” but “a time” also. So then, any person not having the opportunity to live out his/her life to their destined extent will receive that opportunity by reingeneration from Abraham’s Bosom.
