A New Glorified Body

Even our "affections" and "thoughts" are not to be concerned with the things on earth IT'S POLITICS ETC...NOBAMA, ETC...; they are to be centred on "
the things above "where Christ is already seated at the right hand of God.
Hence, we do not read in those Epistles about the coming of Christ to the earth, but rather about our being removed
to be with Him where pie is, not about His parousia, or presence on earth, or " in the air " ; but about............................................................................................ (our presence and manifestation ) ........ with Him in His own glory (even before He comes down in the air). ...not about anastasis or resurrection (which is the subject of the earlier
Pauline Epistles), but about an "ex-anastasis," (Phil. 3: 11) and "the calling on high" (Phil. 3: 14) which is the subject
of the later Epistles; not about any personal happiness which we may have, but about Christ's personal glory, in which
we have the wondrous privilege of sharing.

It mentions "when Christ stands up ...(Even to first get ready to come down in the air...) He will be Manifested and so will we be then. That's our snatching up to be manifested with Christ Jesus ....Even BEFORE the others..A while back....I listen to a Martin and Dan's radio archive show.... Dan laid the ground work and talked about 3 callings. One on earth, one being snatched up into the sky , and a higher calling. He did not say any more on it or elaborate on it. I read the verse in Cor about when Christ stands up to be Manifested, we will also be Manifested.....BOOOM...just like that. Sure looked to me like it could be before the snatching away of anyone in the clouds....! Now after searching for more truth on it...As my fine brother would not elaborate.....I came onto this material about three callings. Bullinger believes ......What I can see quite possible to be true...Anyway we will just have to wait... I hope not long TO SEE ! LOL

Col 1:
1If then ye were raised together with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated on the right hand of God. 2Set your mind on the things that are above, not on the things that are upon the earth. 3For ye died, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4When Christ, who is our life, shall be manifested, then shall ye also with him be manifested in glory.

Romans 8:18 Yet if children, enjoyers also of an allotment, enjoyers, indeed, of an allotment from God, yet joint enjoyers of Christ's allotment, if so be that we are suffering together, that we should be glorified together also." 18 For I am reckoning that the sufferings of the current era do not deserve the glory about to be revealed for us. 19 For the premonition of the creation is awaiting the unveiling of the sons of God. 20 For to vanity was the creation subjected, not voluntarily, but because of Him Who subjects it, in expectation" 21 that the creation itself, also, shall be freed from the slavery of corruption into the glorious freedom of the children of God." 22 For we are aware that the entire creation is groaning and travailing together until now. 23 Yet not only so, but we ourselves also, who have the firstfruit of the spirit, we ourselves also, are groaning in ourselves, awaiting the sonship, the deliverance of our body

2 Cor 5:10 For all of us must be manifested in front of the dais of Christ, that each should be requited for that which he puts into practice through the body, whether good or bad
