Fall and Return to Fullness



Fall and Return to Fullness
Before Christ some came from a realm they could not reenter, and they went to a place they could not yet leave. Then Christ came. Those who went in he brought out, and those who went out he brought in.
Before Christ, some came from a place they were no longer able to enter [their Father who formed them in the womb], and they went where they were no longer able to come out [the world, born in a physical, decaying body]. Then Christ came [in this same manner]. Those who went in [to the world – the first death], he brought out [redeemed them], and those who went out [of the world (and conformed to Messiah)], he brought in [to the heavenly Kingdom]. (Philip 55)


Before Christ came, many descended from the heavenly plane, but they could not return there, for the power of resurrection had not yet been generated. After Christ generated that power, those who descended could also ascend.
