The Celestial Ones

August 8, 2014

When it comes to the writing of Paul for the Body of Christ, the vocabulary of Scripture changes. He does not speak of a fig tree, a beautiful city, lambs or a promised land, but rather that which is not seen or perceived. We are told that our realm is inherent in the heavens (Philippians 3:20). He speaks of spiritual blessings among the celestials (Ephesians 1:3). He speaks of bodies celestial. Our blessing and expectation is not something just from the celestials, but something in the celestials. In I Corinthians 15:49 we learn that we will be the celestial ones.
