Can we be in two places at once?

yes of courseIowa nebraska

The moment we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we take up permanent residence in the unseen spiritual realm of our eternal home. At the same time we remain in the seen and temporal world here on earth.

In the unseen, eternal world God sees us as His perfect, holy child, exactly like He created us to be when He saved and sanctified us.  We are complete. We have become His righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:17). We are beyond reproach. God has already perfected those of us who are in Christ.¹ That’s not me talking, it’s God’s word.

For by one sacrifice he has perfected for all time all those who are being sanctified. Hebrews 10:14

perfected for all time–It’s done. Finished.  God sees us as His perfect, beloved children. Faultless, holy, complete. As He intended us before the foundations of the earth.

But we live in the flesh on earth, where we are being sanctified.  We still have to deal with emotions, trials., temptations and the realities of life on earth.  In the seen world, God is bringing us to perfection, sanctifying us.  God is continuing to work the truth deeper into us  and conform us to His image.
