I actually connected the Avatar concept to Christians from something my wife was sharing with me the other day. She’s a RN, and works mostly in the ICU at her hospital. She mentioned the amount of pain, and suffering that some of these patients experience at times. Then she said, you know, we live in this body for a time while we’re here, but this body is not really who we are. She referenced how the guy in the movie “Avatar,” who had no legs, but he could step into his avatar, and be made whole while he was in it. One day these patients who are suffering that know the Lord, along with us will be able to step into the Father’s care away from all the pain and be made whole. And that’s when it hit me.
John 3:16, For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. The first Adam, a living soul, and all of his successors over the next 4000 years could not get past all the kinks of the soulish avatar. God tried everything from a fully empowered, sin free garden of Eden with regular visitation walks with Adam in the cool of the day, to the water wash out of Noah and his ark, to the miraculous acts of Moses followed up with the Law, and all the many other attempts in between over the generations to no avail. Nope, no matter how God showed his love to us, it was just not enough to get that soulish avatar over the hump. Even the law and all of its sacrifices just proved to be ok; and as you now know, when it comes to Father God, ok is not ok: lol, I just love those commercials. Okay, back to John 3:16. Now to ask one, even one who’s a God to go beyond the boundaries of love is asking a lot. However, God went above and beyond the boundaries of love: He “so” loved us, the world, that He gave us His only begotten Son. Now, I don’t know about you, but I know a lot of people who really love the Lord. When I think of all of those people, no one comes to mind who would be willing to “volunteer” an only begotten child to death on the cross, not without a cannon to the head. Now I could be wrong, and I’m not asking for anyone to volunteer any idle words to give bored accountability any reason to come knocking at your door.
Can you imagine the “Word”, pure spirit, having to leave heaven and put on that fleshy avatar? That is bad enough in itself, and it makes one cringe even more when you think of the nature of the flesh avatar. Yeah, Jesus was the only one who could take on that calling. And that’s the things that makes Jesus the record holder in flesh avatar operations: he’s the only one on record that has successfully fulfilled every iota of the word delivered to him of the Father in bodily form. I don’t see that record going anywhere no time ever. So after 4000 years of Adam on up of soulish men, God needed one that could finally answer the bell in every detail. God realized that if you want something done right, and/or done the way that you want it done, it’s best to do it yourself. We can see “who” much it cost God to save our souls, and to give us our chance at life eternally. Jesus came and not only stepped into this flesh, but He became this flesh to experience life in the same manner as we experience life. So in steps Jesus, the second Adam, but of a different version. Where as the first Adam was a living soul, an avatar made in the image and likeness of God, but under remote operation of God by free will. Now with Jesus we have a living spirit, the avatar is still made in the image and likeness of God, but the new spiritual version is no longer under remote operation. God learned over the first 4000 years after Adam what upgrade that He would make on the new version for those going forth after Jesus. Over the next 2000 years since Jesus and counting, God would set it up so that He could now operate with us on location from within.
You see, the flesh avatar has a nature of its own: monkey see, monkey do. So since it’s “not” going to be “ok” with God that we sometimes do His will, and at other times we do the will of the flesh, He had to help us out. God did not want to take away our free will to do or serve without it being our choice. What He wanted to do was to give those that choose by their own freewill to do His will, the power to get it done. So God now knew, that to live in this flesh and to serve Him, would require more than just free will. It would require power from within to overcome the flesh nature that would rise up from within: you can’t bring a without God to a within God fight with hopes to win. Now a couple of things to remember to keep things clear here in your mind. First, Jesus came to do one thing. He came to die on the cross as the sacrificial lamb that paid our sin debt in full. After this happened, those who believe on his name will be with him in Heaven. Secondly, Now God also gave Him the fullness of God to have at his disposal whatever he would need to establish the Kingdom’s new spiritual campaign, the Body of Christ. Jesus would set up this operation, get it going, and spend roughly three years leaving the example to his Apostles on how to expand this campaign after He leaves. You already know how it went. Jesus comes as God, but lives as a man day-to-day fulfilling scripture. John would later baptize Jesus, and the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: Avatar Spiritual upgrade complete. Then for the next three years Jesus did what He had to do on His way to His cross. In like manner, the Apostles being left to build His church followed the example pattern left by Jesus for their new spiritual avatar version. The apostles had already believed on the name of Jesus. He gave them the will of the Father by commission before he ascended upon high; and before going up, he directed them to wait until they receive the promise of the upgrade from Father. Then On the day of Pentecost, Heaven’s factory completed the recall for upgrade by activating their spiritual avatar version. Acts 2:2-3, And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. Verse 3, And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. Jesus experience of the Holy Ghost was in the form of a DOVE; The original Apostles experience of the Holy Ghost was in the form of cloven tongues like as of fire; Now the reader can fill in this blank: my experience of the Holy Ghost was in the form of _______________________________________: AVATAR UPGRADE COMPLETE!
So over 2000 years, and counting on this version of the Spiritual avatar. We will continue to have access to the power of God according to His will, and also according to how much of his will we can stand. We’re not going to lose our salvation just because our power operation rating may not be as high as the next. Everyone operating with a double portion was never the purpose of the avatar upgrade, and power activation. Father just loved us so much that He did the only thing that he could do to save us. He sent one that could fulfill His standard one time, and let that pay the price for all time to come for them that believe on the name of Jesus. Jesus was giving the fullness of God because it pleased God to have a son willing to carry His standard: and because ok, is not ok, when it comes to Father. Once you settle within yourself the degree that you are willing to walk at standard in Father, the power will be there for you to overcome the soulish nature of the avatar which still will exist. In my next post, I will explain our to fully dress the avatar in the complete spiritual dressing for you to walk in the fulness of God in your bodily form as Jesus did. Jesus received the fullness of God immediately because he was already immediately God. We have to process our way to having access to the fullness of God because we are still processing through the full Godhead. You seldom hear any teaching on the process through the God head, but Jesus left that as a model also. Ok, just a summary, then I will fully explain in my next post. The summary by Jesus of processing through the Godhead: 30 years, 3 years, and 3 days. The “Word” is always first to be processed: Jesus spent his first 30 years fulfilling every iota of scripture. After the word always comes the power: after John suffered the scripture to be fulfilled, and baptized Jesus, The “Power” of the Holy Ghost light on Jesus. Now he was off to be tested by you know who? Then for 3 years Jesus did all types of miracles, healings, power faith. Then the process to Father is always the shortest: 3 days for Jesus. Once Jesus gave up the ghost, The Father who holds the times and seasons in his power, was on stand-by and on time as usual to bring to pass his will.
Now that’s a summary! Can you see why a full post will be needed to explain. Until next time.
