An interesting response, Diane. Even though I didn't mention Christ you made the Christ/Messiah connection. I also believe there is a portion of Christ in our soul and in our spirit and we develop that based on the life we live (the decisions we make), but I differ in that I believe the Messiah (Christ) will return in a body of flesh and bones just as He appeared before. The difference this time is He returns in glory which simply means all will know of his divine nature and that He is God of the earth. His return in glory does not mean, however, we will somehow be mesmerized and automatic become drones who follow the Lord without question. Agency will always be available to us and the choice to follow Christ or not will be ours.
