The Capstone - Summary of Daniel's article by David Aston

David Aston writes a summary of Daniel Yordy's article on the capstone I read Daniel Yordy's article on the capstone and understand things a bit clearer now!:
"The capstone, the goal of the gospel, the whole point of salvation, the thing we groan for with groanings too deep to be uttered, the goal we forsake everything to pursue, to seize hold of, is THREE facets all found in ONE experience. The first facet is you and I being conformed fully to all the fullness of Christ revealed for all to see. The second facet is you and I being filled with all the fullness and glory of Almighty God without hindrance or limitation. And the third facet is the transformation of our physical bodies - our present physical dying bodies being swallowed up in life and immortality.

All three of these facets are the same thing.

And Paul says that we groan for and long for and reach for and seize hold of this experience - the full salvation of our physical bodies.

God intends to prove His will in our bodies upon this earth. This is where it counts.

You die and go to heaven, and yes, you are with the Lord (but not one ounce more than you are right now) and blessed, but you are out of the picture as far as the goal of salvation is concerned, you have lost the most essential part of your being for salvation, your body, and you are now waiting until those who walk upon this earth see this thing through to the finish, and you, in heaven, continue to groan for and long for the same thing, the restoration of your physical body swallowed up in life and immortality"

My husband and i ended up being so peaceful Raymond could carry out his studies from your precious recommendations he received through your web page. It's not at all simplistic to just choose to be releasing procedures that many people may have been making money from. We really fully grasp we have got the writer to be grateful to because of that. The type of illustrations you've made, the straightforward web site navigation, the relationships your site give support to engender - it's most extraordinary, and it's letting our son in addition to the family feel that that idea is awesome, and that is extraordinarily serious. Thanks for the whole lot!
