Wesley's Notes for Colossians 1:22


1:22 By the body of his flesh - So distinguished from his body, the church. The body here denotes his entire manhood. Through death - Whereby he purchased the reconciliation which we receive by faith. To present you - The very end of that reconciliation. Holy - Toward God. Spotless - In yourselves. Unreprovable - As to your neighbour.

    Jennifer, you are correct. Also this scripture is saying that Jesus Christ is and was truly God in the human body. John 1:1 In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God. The Son part of the holy Trinity. Jesus accepted worship from men on earth. Phil. 2:6 Being found in the form of man he thought it not robbery to be equal with God. Glory be to God in the highest.

    Abel, Jesus said, ".... write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God: ......." Rev.3:14. Jesus is the the beginning of God's creation. Which creation does he refer to? It is the new creation, of which Jesus is the firstborn from among the dead. Jesus is the head of the body of Christ, the new creation, made up of all his brethren.

Don't add more to this fallen nation of darkness confess yourself to him nobody eles he is are salvation are only salvation in him we will live and truly find that true peace, that you won't find anywhere or in anything in this world. Romans 10:5-17 This flesh and bone and everything we have now is all temporal. Life itself here on earth is temporary so use your God given life wise time is leaving the hour glass. 1 Corinthians 15:50-58 there is hope for them that seek him diligent.
