Most people teach that a world view is the lens through which you view the world. The truth is that they are flat wrong. There are two realms.
The realm of this world and the realm of the spirit. God refers to the world as temporal and the spiritual as the eternal. Your world view is either worldly or eternal.
I will show the history of God’s work as it relates to the world and the eternal and then the way the scripture states that we are to view things form God’s perspective in the spirit. Here is a systematic chronological view of the temporal and eternal.
The Law, Temple and its articles were of this world according to the worldly Temple for the unregenerate from the first Adam that are flesh. They were serving their purpose of looking forward to faith for those confined under sin to perform its service until the time of reformation (Hebrews 9:23-24). The eternal was looking to the Gospel of faith to come.
Galatians 3:8 says that Abraham trusting in the gospel prior to its coming. He with all the others of faith went to Abrahams resting place until the way was made in the resurrection (Luke 16; Ephesians 4:7-10). The Old Testament was types, pictures and shadows of things to come pertaining to Christ.
Hebrews 10:1 says, For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
Context states that the things performed yearly would could not perfect. Jesus comes with a body that is without sin to condemn sin in the flesh once and for all as the personification of the types, pictures and shadows. Hebrews 11:1-2 says, Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Christ is the substance of the things hoped for to come and the evidence of the things that were not seen.
The next verse states: Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. This is the same thing that Romans one states saying that man is without excuse for not trusting in God with the evidence of creation as general revelation. Here it is showing you specific revelation that Jesus is the God that framed the worlds manifested in the flesh.
Jesus rose as a spiritual body as a forerunner into the Heavens for us to follow through faith. Mark 2 says that Jesus told them you will kill me and I will raise it as a temple without hands. This is a reference to spiritual temple for us to inhabit through faith. Jesus says that I will build house of Me (not ecclesia church) and the gates of hell will not prevail against it (Matthew 16).
It is critical to understand that Jesus took on the material in flesh that was without sin. God is 100% Man and 100% God for the purpose of redemption of all the earthly realm in the future consummation of all things. Mankind touched God, Looked upon Him and walked with Him (I John 1).
The atheist should know this point. Jesus ascended into the heavens for us to follow through spiritual regeneration into His spiritual Body seated in the spirit through faith.
The first aspect is complete God manifesting in the flesh for redemption man and the Earth. The resurrection as the head of a spiritual race for preeminence over those that follow the forerunner called out of this world system in the realm of the spirit. This made the way for spiritual regeneration through the Gospel of salvation. The second aspect is returning again to resurrect us as.
Romans 8:23-25 says, And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.
2 Corinthians 3:18 uses the same wording As Hebrews 11:1 speaking of the personification of Jesus. While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Christ was manifested for Him to manifest in us through faith with His spirit in us as a guarantee of the future redemption of our body (Ephesians 1:13). 2 Corinthians 3-5 contextually lay out the glorious Gospel of salvation and conclusion of glorious redemption of our body.
We are changed into the image of Christ from glory to glory. The glory of the gospel of salvation should shine upon them to give the light to the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus unto salvation. The conclusion is the glorious redemption of the body in I Corinthians 15. It uses the term glorious for each point of changing into the image of Christ (2 Corinthians 4:4-5; I Corinthians 15:43; Philippians 3:21). Our faith is in the resurrection.
2 Corinthians 5:1-8 says, For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
Christ was manifested in the flesh for salvation fulfilling the Law and the Prophets revealing the mystery Christ in us the hope of glory. Christ is the personification of faith looked forward to the Gospel to come in the Old Covenant leading captivity of those with trust into eternity in the resurrection. We which are alive and remain are to receive Christ through faith for salvation.
Christ comes to live in us as a seal that He will resurrect our body in the resurrection. We are in God in the spirit while our crucified carcass perishes we are renewed getting closer to the redemption of our body. If we put off this body, then absence from it is for us to see the Lord until the time of our redemption in the resurrection.
What is the eternal worldview?
God says calling those things that are not as though they are. We are to see things from God’s perspective in the spirit. We are to set our minds on the things that are in the realm of the spirit.
We are to keep our minds stayed on Him for perfect peace. We are in this world system not of it. We are to trust the report of the Lord not the politics, culture or pattern of this world system. Culture come from the root word cult.
Government means to control your mind. The war in the realm of the natural and the spirit is a war of words. They are at enmity with each other.
Who report are you going to trust? God or the rulers of this world system under the influence of the prince of this world Satan. God said that My kingdom is not of this world system.
I will come back to reign in a new Earth for the first will get set on fire. The utopia will come in the new not through the godless one that exists now. Man is a liar trying to create utopia, sustainability or peace.
Jesus said when they peace they are liars. Save every soul possible for them to experience the paradise of God that is eternal. The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and Joy in the spirit until He returns. There is a new Earth that we will inhabit with God forever with the throne of God Segway from the eternal.
