thanking the Father [Jehovah] who rendered you
suitable for your participation in the inheritance of the holy ones in the
13 He delivered us from the authority of the darkness [Satan the mediator of the first holy spirit covenant, the 1HSC]
and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of his love [Michael who possessed Jesus during his ministry, and was the mediator of the second holy spirit covenant, the 2HSC],
14 by means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins [Michael, the son of God's love, the son given to us by God's love, who ransoms Adam].
15 He is the image of the invisible God [in love and righteousness, the free willed fruitages that make a spirit son divine eventually],
the firstborn of all creation [having purchased those rights from Satan in the greater bowl of soup deal whereby Satan got to be secular king over us for 6,000 years and Michael got his angelic first born rights, which were no use to Satan since he was sentenced to death for his sin in Eden and so would no longer have them upon his resurrection his re-birth];
16 because in/due to him all things [panta is neuter] were created in the heavens and upon the earth [neuter administrative structures of the types listed below, not humans or angels who are male or female and not neuter],
the things visible [human power structures in the world - which would not exist without him] and the things invisible [angelic power structures in the heavens],
no matter whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities [power structures].
All things [power structures] have been created through him and for him [through his agreement to ransom Adam and to take the firstborn rights from Satan in order to be able to mediate the second holy spirit covenant which is the power structure of the heavens which was needed after Satan who was the mediator of the first holy spirit covenant sinned so as to incur death and so destroyed God's first wife, the first heavens, the first heavenly administration].
17 Also, he is before all things [in time and in authority since his covenant with God preceded all the administrative structures of the second heaven and the world. The heavenly administration of the Kingdom of God is the 3rd heaven, which Paul saw, wherein Jesus has become a God and the 1NC is actually the 3HSC, the 3rd Holy Spirit Covenant]
and in/due to him all things were made to exist [due to his two agreements to save mankind and to mediate a second holy spirit covenant to restore the heavens which required that he buy the firstborn rights from Satan],
18 and he is the head of the body, the congregation [The head of the body of his wife, the 1NC saints, who are to be the holy spirit of the Kingdom of God. He was also the head of the second holy spirit covenant, the heavenly body of God's wife. He did not have to give that up when he became a God on 33Sivan5. He did have to give it up when he got married to his own first presence 3rd Holy Spirit on 2008Nisan22. Not sure who has it now. Gabriel has given his angel temporarily for the JAC].
He is the beginning [of the world and of everlasting life which was the blessing of the 2HSC. Avoiding Tartarus was the blessing of the 1HSC. He is also the beginning of created divinity, i.e. the only begotten God of John 1:18],
the firstborn from the dead [he only completed the bowl of soup deal when he actually ransomed Adam. So he became the firstborn only after his ransoming death],
that he might become the one who is first in all things [authority, everlasting life and divinity, after God of course. God did not become the one who was first. He was always the one who was/is/will be first. Paul is speaking with the obvious exception of God as he did in 1Corinthians 15:27].
27 For [God] subjected all [things] under his feet. But when he says that all [things] have been subjected it is evident that it is with the exception of the one who subjected all [things] to him [since Jehovah one is not a thing but a person] (1Corinthians 15).
19 because [God] saw good for all fullness to dwell in him,
20 and through him to reconcile again [since the 1HSC collapsed when Satan sinned] to himself all things by making peace through the blood [he shed] on the torture stake, no matter whether they are the things upon the earth or the things in the heavens [Jesus gave two ransoms, one was human for Abraham, the other was angelic for Adam which ransom can be applied not only to the genetic sons of Adam but also to the covenant sons of Adam, i.e. for any angel who goes to Gehenna actually]. (1Colossians 1).
At first sight 1Corinthians11 appears to state that only Jehovah was God at the time it was written. But things are actually more subtle than that...
1 Now concerning foods offered to
idols: we know we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffs up, but love builds
2 If anyone [first century Christians and Paul included] thinks he has acquired knowledge of something, he does not yet know [it] just as he ought to know [it] [he ought to know it absolutely].
3 But if anyone loves God, this one is known by him.
4 Now concerning the eating of foods offered to idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is no [other - according to the majority text, but not according to Westcott or UBS or Nestle Aland] God but one [incomplete knowledge - so there is not only one God].
5 For even though there are those who are called gods, whether in heaven or on earth, just as there are many gods and many lords,
6 there is actually to us [dative, i.e. in our understanding, but not to future generations of Christians] one God the Father, out of [ex] whom all things are [the creator], and we into [eiV] him [are going, when we become divine - we go into his divine body and then divide like a cell into two Gods - Jesus having done this. the comparison being between out of and into. If we came out of him we are going back into him]; and there is one Lord [of all creation], Jesus Christ, through [dia] whom all things are, and we through [dia] him [is it not totally obvious that Jehovah is acting as the father, and Jesus as the mother? Because Paul said 3 chapters later...
12 For just as the woman is out of [ex] the man, so also the man is through the woman [dia]; but all things are out [ex] of God (1Corinthians 11).
If the father is divine then so is the mother or we have bestiality]
