with Jeremy Westcott –
Adam was created a spiritual being. We all were. Adam became a ‘living being’ when God breathed His breath into him. That is something different from a spirit being. But when Adam sinned, he became a human being. He lost his status as a living being, and his status as a spiritual being, because his spirit was dead, separated from God.
We are all born human beings, though with a destiny. Every single person born since Adam, other than Jesus, has been born a human being. Jesus did not come from an egg from his mother and a sperm from God. He came, in a human body, entirely from God.
Jesus, the second Adam, won victory on the cross. He defeated all the principalities, all the powers and all the other demonic forces. His victory gives us the capacity to be born again, to come into a relationship with God, and to reclaim our destiny.
It means we can become a spirit being once again.
But we need to go beyond that and become a living being. We need to have God come and breathe His breath into us. God comes to dwell in our spirit. As a spirit being, we have access to our destiny, and our scroll of destiny sits in our heart and starts to vibrate. It produces a sound. We begin to resonate with it, and that sound starts to transform our physical and spiritual DNA.
There is far more to breaking bread, or taking communion, than we had realised. In the breaking of bread and sharing the wine we are transformed as we take on the DNA of God (you can read the startling things Jesus says about eating His flesh and drinking His blood in John chapter 6).
It is only intimacy with God which can start to change and transform us into that living being that He intends us to be.
