The New Testament Teaches a Progression from Flesh to Spirit

Beginning with the gospels and continuing throughout all the New Testament books that follow, there is an emphasis away from flesh and toward spirit – that is, away from visible things and toward invisible things, away from physical things and toward spiritual things.

How then do people say that this progression is to be consummated by Jesus Christ coming again in the flesh?

1 Timothy 3:16 says that He who was revealed in the flesh was vindicated in the spirit.  Why then do some people want to rewrite this and say Jesus is to be vindicated in the flesh?

2 Corinthians 5:16 says that though we have known Christ according to the flesh, we know Him thus no longer.  Why then do some people long for what the Bible says is not to be?

Jesus Christ Has Already Come Again and the reason so many people who are otherwise devoted to Him haven’t recognized this is that they’ve never embraced the New Testament’s instruction to forsake the flesh and walk in the spirit.
