THE TRUTH IS — QUICKENINGS in the K.J.T. does NOT mean to hasten the pace, but from DEATH to LIFE.
Adam was quickened into natural life only – Gen.2:7. Jesus Christ is the action, the “quickening spirit” = 1st Cor. 15:45. Two categories exist of such .
1. Creative Eternally, including the Resurrection of the Body. Psalms 71:20; Heb. 4:12.
2. Timely Gospel Activity, into Lively Actions, manifests the existence of the first, as in Psalms 119:25, 37, 40, 50, 88, 93, 107, 149, 154—159, 143:11.
The Holy Godhead is the initial power of ALL Quickenings – 1st Tim. 6:13 covering all three – Vital, Legal and finally the Body – Rom. 8:23.
