As a matter of fact, after Jesus came physically and left, from among those mentioned in the KJV N.T. Paul was the only one to have communion with Jesus in His Spirit and also ask Jesus (in His Spirit) what was on His (Jesus) mind for him (Paul) to pray for, say and do.
This was in accordance with the Gift which God provided for those under the law. After Jesus' crucifixion and rise to heaven, God sent Jesus back in His Spirit. God sent the Spirit of Jesus into the hearts of those under the law so that they might become adopted children of God. Up to the writing of the KJV N.T. Paul was the only one to pick up this offer of Jesus in His Spirit, from God.
And Paul was the only one to be led into all his works (thereafter) by precisely what Jesus had in mind for him to pray for, say and do as discerned from His (Jesus') Spirit through his (Paul's) own heart or spirit.
This made Paul the only one in Christ.
No one else was led in this manner, not even Peter.
Every one were told to look not at the things that are seen (i.e. like Jesus in a physical body). Such things are temporal. Instead look at things that are not seen (like Jesus in His Spirit). Such things are eternal.
This is a clear declaration to all to not look for Jesus in a physical body. This is a clear declaration to all, that the second coming of Jesus is not in a physical body.
Then it is confirmed that God sent Jesus back, in His Spirit, into the hearts of those under the law so that they
become adopted children of God. It is not a sure thing.
What foolishness it is to be looking forward for the return of Jesus in the flesh.
It was confirmed clearly and recorded in the KJV N.T.: Now (i.e. since some 2000 odd years ago) the Lord is that Spirit of Jesus.
Jesus is Lord and He has long returned in His Spirit, to rule on earth. Only the chosen few discern Him (within their own hearts or spirits) and are led into all their works by Him.
