About Jesus - Steve Sweetman
Does Jesus Exist Right Now?
Where does Jesus
exist at this exact moment? In
whatever form Jesus now exists, He exists at the right hand of God the
Father. First century
Christians understood that to mean that Jesus now sits in a place of
universal authority alongside God His Father.
Mark 16:19 and Acts 2:33 are a number of passages that make this
If Jesus exists
alongside God His Father right now, why does the Apostle Paul say that
Christ lives in him (Galatians 2:20)?
Can Jesus be in heaven and us at the same time?
If Jesus exists in some kind of glorified body right now alongside
of God, how can that glorified body of Jesus live within a human?
Both Romans 8:9 and
1 Peter 1:11 speaks of the Spirit of Christ.
Acts 16:7 and Philippians 1:19 speaks of the Spirit of Jesus.
The Biblical fact is, and it's a matter of the Trinitarian nature
of the Godhead, that the Holy Spirit is also the Spirit of Jesus.
There is one spirit, not two (1 Corinthians 12:13. Ephesians 2:16,
4:4 and elsewhere). He is the
Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
So, Jesus, in
whatever form He presently exists, exists alongside God His Father, but,
in spirit form, He lives within the true believer.
