Did you know whenever Paul mentions “in the air” he does not mean in mid-air but that “the spiritual realm”?
2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.
The air was the realm of Satan. It was where you were spiritually. So when Paul says:
1 Thessalonians 4:17
17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
It means you are transferred from the kingdom of darkness into his kingdom of marvelous light.
You were transformed from Sinai to Zion. You were transformed from
“Worshipping in Jerusalem” to “worshipping in the spirit”. You no longer look toward the “old Jerusalem and it’s temple” for worship. You now look into yourself as the new temple and the New Jerusalem.
You are transformed in the spiritual realm from Adam to Christ. You are moved from being a slave of sin to a slave of righteousness.
You are transformed from Hagar to Sarah. You are transformed from the bride of the Law to the bride of Christ.
Paul tells us when that is going to happen.
2 Corinthians 3:15-18
15 Even to this day when Moses is read, a veil covers their hearts. 16 But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever- increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
This transformation happened when the veil is taken away. It happen when we see the Spirit.
What is this veil that is taken away? It is the Law of Moses. You know when that happened?
AD70. When the temple was destroyed. It was when the veil is fully lifter away. That was when you were transformed with a blink of an eye.
That when your engagement to Jesus became a wedding. You are as he is in heaven.
You are already transformed.
Live like it.
