Beloved, the phrase “look up for our redemption draws nigh” does not mean to look up into the sky for the coming of Christ, but rather TO FIX OUR VISION ON THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT (a higher realm than this natural one) so that we might UNDERSTAND the manner of the Lord’s coming in this day.
There is great misconception regarding this “coming” in the Church today, this primarily because most Christians today (for some reason) cannot comprehend that “Christ” is a many membered body of whom Jesus Christ is the Head. In the scriptures when the definite article “the” is used with “Christ,” it speaks of Jesus Christ, the Anointed One, the Messiah. But when the scriptures refer to “Christ,” they are usually referring to the collective Christ, the Head (Jesus Christ) IN UNION WITH His fully matured body of believers.
Now, with all of this in mind, consider too that the term “second coming” cannot be found anywhere in the scriptures. Really? Yeah, religious men made that up. Creation is surely groaning for a full manifestation of Christ in the earth, but this is not about some giant Jesus appearing in the sky but about THE MANIFESTATION OF SONS who walk in the HUMILITY and the LOVE and the MATURITY and the MEEKNESS and the POWER and the AUTHORITY and the ANOINTING of the Son of God.
