KEY SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 5:17 ” Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
Our key scripture is one of the amazing revelations the Holy Spirit gave to Apostle Paul. He said,” Therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things have passed away, behold everything has become new. “The scripture states further that, “and all things are of God….”The word ‘ of ‘ means ‘ out of ‘ or ‘ from ‘.This means everything that the man in Christ is or has become is a manifestation of God’s nature and ability in him. He has become a supernatural being.
The man in Christ is no more the man who is subject to the forces and elements of this life. He is a manifestation of the abilities and nature of God to ‘reconcile’ men to God. (2nd Corinth 5:18&19).
This is very wonderful. If you be in Christ, you play the role of our Lord Jesus. The Lord said in “‘John 17:18 “As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world”. Jesus our Lord was sent with super powers to fulfill His mission. This is what we are. We have been made super humans like our master Jesus to do this work of reconciling men to God.
In 2nd Corinth 5:16 apostle Paul confessed that ” Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more”. He is saying he used to see Christians after the flesh and even considered the Lord that way, but he does not consider Him any more after the flesh.
Dear child of God stop considering yourself after the flesh. The lot of people of the flesh is sin, sicknesses, lack and misery of all kinds. They are subject to the dictates of the devil. You are no more after the flesh. You are superior to the devil and all his works. You are a spiritual being .Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit …”
Keep seeing yourself from God’s mirror ,the word of God.2 Corinthians 3:18 ” But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
You are what the Bible says you are. Keep looking at it and you would become what you see in the bible.
I am a new creature, recreated after the nature and abilities of my Lord Jesus Christ. I am here on a mission, reconciling men back to God. I am not subject to any work of Satan .I am very successful in setting men free from Satan’s hold. Amen
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them”
Ephesians 4:24 “And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness”.
