For the older readers out there, before the digital era brought such great advances, our cameras used film. When the film Cartridge is processed they produced a photo for your album and a negative from which further photos can be made. In essence, the negative is the true, and the photo was the copy. Commonly called type and antitype. It is the same of our world; we believe that physical is the real, because we physically perceive that to be the case. From Gods perspective it is the reverse, the spiritual is the negative of which the physical is made, the photo.
We, humans believe to our peril that this world is all there is. We have allowed ourselves to be deceived and remain deceived by Satan.who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
God through his word, allows us to glimpse the real. The spiritual via his Church. We travel through this often broken world with a family spiritually via baptism and our sins are washed away. We are added to the body of Christ, the Church of Christ.
If you need to get your life right with God, to have your sins washed away and to added to the body of Christ. Please approach a local church of Christ. Or contact me via the email link below.
