TO, IN, AND THROUGH
He came to us that we would be redeemed (Is.9:6; Lk.2:25-35).
He is come within us that we would experientially "know" Him (Acts 2:4; Col.1:27).
He is coming through us that He would be glorified in the saints to the world (2 Thess.1:11,12; Rev.5:10; 19:11; Joel 2; 1 Jn.4:17; Rev. 21).
May your Tabernacle be filled and overflowing in Love, Peace, and Joy of Christ Himself this Christmas and years to come.

Scripture they will begin to see there is a three dimension process to

of their soul following after the spirit, it follows after the flesh.
God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness...
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created
him; male and female He created them."(Gen.1:26a,27)
was created as a triune being, made in the image of God Himself. There
are three in the Godhead. There is God the Father, God the Son, and God
the Holy Spirit. In man, who was created in the image of God we are
spirit, soul, and body. The Father is a Spirit, and Jesus is the soul
of the Father, and the Holy Spirit is the manifest presence of both.
