YOU ARE IN " GOOD STANDING " WITH THE LORD IF...........
In the following Scriptures, the word "groan" means "yearn" :
"For we know that the whole creation GROANS and travails IN PAIN TOGETHER until now ( until the resurrection / rapture ). And not only they , BUT OURSELVES ALSO, which have the 'Firstfruits of the Spirit' , even WE OURSELVES GROAN WITHIN OURSELVES waiting for our adoption , the REDEMPTION OF OUR BODY."
2 Corinthians 5:2-4
" For in this WE GROAN EARNESTLY , desiring to be clothed with our immortal house which is from heaven.......... For we that are in this mortal tabernacle DO GROAN, being burdened : ........."
2 Corinthians 5:6
".......while we are in our earthly body, WE ARE ABSENT FROM THE LORD."
2 Corinthians 5:8
".....to be absent from our body, IS TO BE PRESENT WITH THE LORD."
SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT :
You are in 'GOOD STANDING' with the Lord Jesus if you are NOW GROANING while waiting for His appearing to redeem, ie. the exchange, your painful earthly body for your IMMORTAL BODY which is from heaven , and feels no pain .
According to Your Holy Word, come Lord Jesus !
