Perfection of exanastasis

As His physical blood was shed through the wounds that He suffered, Christ was being made alive from the death of sin as a corporate New Creation. Heb 13:20. He was pioneering the pathway of every person’s salvation, and He was fulfilling the works of their sonship. Heb 5:8. Isa 26:12. Furthermore, the resurrection life in Christ’s blood was being multiplied and given to be the life of those who would receive His word and accept their participation in the fellowship of His offering. 1Jn 5:12.

When the Son of Man’s offering journey was complete, exanastasis had attained a full perfection and expression in Him. Joh 19:30. His Spirit had gone to the Father, yet His physical body remained on earth, where it lay for three days and three nights in a tomb. The reason why Christ’s body did not decay during this time was because the exanastasis life of the Father had already been perfected in His physical body through His offering on the cross. On the day of resurrection, three days and three nights following His death, His body did not need to be changed into a spiritual body. It had already become spiritual through the power of exanastasis. When He returned to His body, it was as spiritual as it was material.

Through His offering journey from Gethsemane to Calvary, Jesus brought an end to ‘the belly’ as being the principle of life for mankind. 1Co 6:13. His physical body was raised to immortality. It is now a spiritual body that is sustained by a different principle; He now lives only by the power of an endless life. Heb 7:15-16. This reveals anastasis in an immortal body. He is still able to eat and drink natural food; however, His body is no longer mortal and sustained by the principle of biological life. Luk 24:41-43.
