Resurrection In Our True Being

Become what you are (Pindar)

The Resurrection is no other thing than the re-constitution of our nature in its original form (St.Gregory of Nyssa, On the Soul and the Resurrection) [2]

Assuming that this original form is the non-fallen Divine Soul of Humanity, body of the Messiah, which dwells beyond the state of innocence enjoyed by First Adam in Eden.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ (Love, Life, Light), he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17) 

For in Him we live, move and have our being (Acts 17:28)

So the re-constitution is an even more perfect state than the Edenic innocence from which the sparks of Humanity´s Soul fell, since the New Creation contains experience and transcendence of death.

The inner side of Genesis 2 implies we exist in a fallen Creation since the day the "living soul" called Adam was put to sleep and split up into a spiritual maculine part (higher mind) and a feminine lower one (emotional mind), which got trapped inside the infamous Serpent, doomed to miss the mark and venture to experience death by eating from the Tree of perfection/completeness (Tob) and incompleteness (Ra). 

The Zohar states Adam ate from the Tree of Knowledge before the appointed time. Yet, had he any other option?

For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope (Romans 8:20)

Genesis 1:2, Isaiah 45:18 and other passages strongly suggest this was an outcome of a previous heavenly Fall, and it actually made possible a reconciliation of the old Fallen Creation  by means of Divine Grace in the New Creation. 

The New Humanity  is based on the Way of Love, Life and Love, manifestations of the Infinite Being by means of its Emanation/Name, i.e YHWH (IAUA), which came to be known as Yahushua, which means IAUA is Salvation, often mistaken with the person that embodies it, such as Yahshua/Jesus.

The Divine Essence of Life is also deemed as Head (Colossians 1:19-20) of a cosmic Body, to which our Soul belongs.

Now it only remains to manifest such Body fully, crucifying the ego in matter and resurrecting from this fallen creation, in all those who receive Life.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ [Life, Light, Love] lives in me (Galatians 2:20)

This is the reason why Christ should never be seen as an external person that resurrects us if we worship  him, but rather as one´s true Self/Essence.

...God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1: 26-27)

In other words, the remaning Soul sparks of the New Creation await in Light realms, ready to guide their earthly counterparts, allowing fallen creation to be brought back to its unfallen perfection, as the light of spirit shining on water to make it evaporate, sublimate.

These emanated seeds were known as "angelic counterparts" or even "twin flames", as those curious "double flames" that were kindled on the Apostles´heads during Pentecost (Acts 2). 

Without our true Higher Self or Divine Soul, no one would live or be individually saved:

Blessed is the man whose face mirrors the countenance of the Man from above (Zohar)

See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their Angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven (Matthew 18:10).

So the Divine Soul looks not only towards our realm, but contemplates the Spirit of the Father, and without this mediation the higher Light would never reach this physical dimension, since no darkness can exist in the deeper planes.

Hence St.Gregeory went on saying that eventually, after the apokatastasis or reconstitution of all things, there will remain nothing but goodness.

And as prophet Isaiah stated, in the New Earth, the former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind (Isaiah 65:17).

This seems to imply all was reconciled before it took place, and we may be living a sort of Flashforward. More strange, impossible.
