I observe that life exists in dimensions and even in the same dimension, there are classes. Plant life exists in a totally different dimension than animal life, which exists in a completely different dimension than human life. For example, a bat and a lion are both mammals but they exist in two different classes, with characteristics, behaviors and results peculiar to their classes. I am neither a philosopher nor a scientist so my terminologies may be “incorrect” but this helps my understanding.
We all live on the same planet, we may even attend the same schools, work in the same organizations, live in the same neighbourhoods, attend the same churches or belong in the same family but we do not all belong in the same class of being. We are not all of the same species.
There is a supernatural class of being, where man was originally designed to exist. This is a class of being operating according to set laws that are as fixed as physical laws. This is God’s class, where nothing is impossible. In this class, we can habitually behave like God and obtain Godly results, not just once in a while but by default. Results in this class are considered miraculous if not mysterious to human beings who are limited to what can be perceived with their senses but to those developed in that class, those results are understood and can be created at will. A pilot is not surprised when an air plane lifts off any more than I am surprised when my car moves.
From Jesus’ perspective raising the dead, stilling the storm, feeding the multitudes or healing the sick were neither miracles nor indeterminable occurrences. They are behaviors and results native to His class. In His class, it is as natural to speak to a storm as it is natural for someone in the merely human class to be afraid in a storm. He did not get to the grave of Lazarus wondering “how on earth am I going to do this” neither did He scream “Oh my God” when Lazarus came forth. He knew what to do as much I know how to drive a car. He lived in God’s class and He invites us to live there too, rather than function there once in a while. In that class, once you have the know-how, you are not surprised that all things are possible for you.
Human beings living in the realm of the senses can enter into that class of being at any time. Jesus calls it being born again but we have stripped it of meaning, treating it like mere conversion, as though switching from one religion to another when it has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with new life in God’s class.
Each believer in Christ is born into God’s class, with latent capacity to think, talk, act like Christ and obtain even greater results than Christ but we forever sing “Born born born again, thank God I’m born again” while doing little or nothing to develop ourselves into a fully developed clone of God. The average human being can fly an airplane but not every human being commits themselves to learning how to fly. Any believer can be like Christ but most believers do not take Jesus seriously when He says, “come and learn of me,” so we remain babies for life and the rest of the world thinks it is religion and wants nothing to do with it.
A peculiar characteristic of those who have entered God’s class is that we all experience storms common to man but we have an overwhelming, if not seemingly unfair advantage of responding as clones of God. How we respond determines the results we get since in either class, results are 100% predictable. Sadly, and this will change, we have been responding to the issues of life as people in the human class because we have remained babies in God’s class.
