If any man be in Christ he is a new creature (Creation); old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new… II Cor 5:17.

Therefore if any person is (engrafted) in Christ, the Messiah, he is (a new creature altogether,) a new creation; the old (previous moral and spiritual condition) has passed away, behold the fresh and new has come…  II Cor 5:17 AMP.

Adam lived in the realm of the Spirit in the Garden of Eden.  He was created in Perfection and he lived in Perfection until the entrance of sin.  At the moment of his disobedience, he lost all the benefits God had given him and became a victim of the kingdom of darkness.

  • Adam had perfect Fellowship with God. He was totally righteous and free from any and all condemnation.   He did not sin before he met the enemy.
  • Adam lived in Perfect and Perpetual health. He was never sick and he was never weak.  He lived in state of continual well-being.
  • Adam was prosperous. He had no needs that were not met and he experienced no lack and no want.  He had food, shelter, protection, fellowship and companionship.  He was totally without lack or need.
  • Adam suffered no pain. He never had an accident or lived under any circumstance.  He was free from fear and anxiety.  He lived by faith.
  • Adam was Perfect. He was perfect in Mind, Body and Spirit.  He was strong and mentally alert.  He was perfect in every way.
  • Adam orchestrated Nature and enjoyed its cooperation. The earth worked with Adam in providing an abundant supply of his every need.  The animal and plant kingdom were blessed because of Adam.
  • Adam operated in and exercised authority and control over the World God had created for him. God was “number One” and Adam was “number two”.

When Adam sinned and died spiritually, he forfeited all the benefits of a perfect world. His spiritual death was passed down to all his posterity… the whole human race.

Wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men… Rom 5:12.

Adam’s sin resulted in the whole human race dying spiritually.  Every man is born with a dead spirit.  That is why Jesus told Nicodemus:  “Ye must be Born Again…”

Our dead spirit is “Quickened” or made alive at the time we are Born Again.  This means “re-created” or “restored” (Eph 2:1).   God restores to every believer the possibility of another Eden.

What God did in Christ is greater than what satan did in Adam.

 

What God did IN You is greater than what satan can do TO you

Born Again.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

  • “Born Again” means separated from the world.
  • “Born Again” means becoming a New Creation.

It is not religion.  It is not good works. It is not belonging to a church.  It is not being baptized. It is not being sweet and nice and kind and considerate.  It is not being “better” than some Church Members you might know.  It is not some religious tradition or doctrinal custom.  It cannot be done for you by some priest or religious dogma.  It is personal.  It is possible and available for anyone.  It is the Result of the Redemptive Work of Jesus Christ.  It is free for the asking.  It is the Gift of God.  It is Eternal Life.

It is being Born Again.

 

Except a man be BORN AGAIN he cannot see the Kingdom of God John 3:3

Proper Knowledge.

It is important for you to know who you are, what you have and what you can do as a believer.   The devil constantly tempts you to doubt all of the above.   he wants you to doubt who you are (he tried to get Jesus to doubt Who He was) or to wonder who you are or to be ignorant of who you are.  As long as you are not sure of your position in Christ and your authority as a believer, your faith will not work.

You cannot receive what you do not know about.  God has raised up anointed ministries in order to instruct believers of their privileges and rights which are revealed in the Word.   The power of this Truth working in your spirit will produce change in your soul (mind) and in your body.

As you get the Word built up in you, Faith is produced and developed because faith comes by hearing the Word.   As your Faith is perfected you come into fresh revelation concerning your Position in Christ.  God has called, appointed and anointed individuals who are operating in the five-fold ministry (Eph 4) in the Body as Master Craftsmen to perfect you (build you up) in ministry.   You are “God’s Building.”

 … ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.  1Co 3:9

A Revelation God.

Our concept of God, over time,  has been somewhat limited and incorrect .  We have been taught that God is mad and mean and vengence driven.  We have often lived in great fear and anxiety because we were told that God was going to get even.  He has been presented as a God of Judgment and revenge and wrath.

At the same time we were told how unworthy were and how we were hardened sinners and were therefore under constant guilt and condemnation.  The main message from the pulpit was fear oriented and it continually emphasized how hot and unbearable hell is.

Thank God, times have changed.  Our level of revelation has greatly increased and we have come into a wonderful understanding of the true nature of God.

God is a Giver.  God is a Giver because He is a Lover.  God us a Lover because He is a Father.  God does not kill, murder, take away, hinder, hurt, test, try, make sick, give cancer, cause poverty, or “get even.”

God is Good and He Loves, Gives, Multiplies, Heals, Delivers, Sets Free, Enriches, Fixes, Helps, Strengthens, Provides, Protects.

It’s the devil that kills, steals, robs, destroys, causes sickness, hinders, hurts, binds, subtracts, breaks, steals our money, our happiness, our joy and our peace.

The Word correctly identifies the work of the devil… he steals, kills and destroys.

God gives LIFE (Zoe) and LIFE more ABUNDANTLY

Miracles.

God is a Miracle God.  He knows all about miracles.  God likes miracles and God performs miracles.  God delights in performing the impossible for those who love Him.  God wants you to receive your miracle more than you desire to have it…  His desire for you to receive is greater than your desire to get.  God’s ways are miraculous ways.  He declares that:

My ways are higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts… Isa 55:9

The devil hates miracles.  Miracles have defeated and humiliated him in in the past and they will overcome him in the present.  Miracles prove God, reveal God and release God’s Power.  Miracles always defeat the devil and prevent him from fulfilling his mission.  Healing is a miracle.  Deliverance is a miracle.  Salvation is a miracle.  The Holy Spirit Baptism is a miracle.  All these defeat the devil and make an open show of his weakness and helplessness.

The Church needs miracles.  Too long we have operated in our own strength and our own ability.  We have manufactured the ”religious” machine, kept it well-oiled and repaired, painted and polished it, spent our efforts in lowering empty buckets into empty wells and we have grown weary of bringing nothing up.  The church has, in many cases, become nothing more than a man-made organism functioning in the limitations of man’s strength and human ability. The Church needs miracles.  The church needs challenges that will shake it out of its self-sufficiency and mediocrity.

If we are not living in and doing the Miraculous we are doing no more than General Motors or Chrysler or Ford or IBM.  The Church needs to believe for and expect miracles. It will never surpass what it can do and get what God can give if it miracles are not evident in its ministry.

Miracles should be the Norm and not the Exception

An Unfailing Anchor.

God’s Word is an Anchor that holds (Heb 6:19).   It is as reliable as God is.  It is as strong as God is.  It is as enduring as God is.  It is as changeless as God is.

The Word proved to be an unfailing Anchor in the lives and experiences of many of the Heroes we read about in the Bible.  It held steady in times of trials and impossibilities.  It gave them security in the times of storms and conflicts.  The Word was an anchor in them that held them secure in the Hand of God.

  • The Word in Moses produced Israel’s deliverance from Egypt.
  • The Word in Joshua drove out the enemy and produced victory in the Promised Land.
  • The Word in David gave him strength in the time of temptation and victory in the time of attack. The result was and is the matchless beauty of Worship and Praise in the Book of Psalms.
  • The Word in Elijah produced water in the season of drought.
  • The Word in Joseph sustained him in prison, delivered him from lies and brought him great favor and promotion as the Prime Minister of Egypt.
  • The Word in Job kept him faithful to God in his loss of everything he loved and treasured.
  • The Word in Elisha raised the Shunammite’s son from the dead, caused the axe head to swim and cleansed numerous lepers.
  • The Word in Daniel stopped the mouths of hungry lions.
  • The Word in Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, cooled the fiery furnace and brought the Son of God from heaven to comfort them.
  • The Word in John the Baptist caused him to launch Jesus into His public ministry.
  • The Word in Paul saw him through ship wrecks, stonings, scourgings, imprisonments, rejections and betrayals and produced most of the New Testament.
  • The Word in John gave him a glimpse of the Rapture, the Return of Jesus and the Eternal Perfect State of those who are washed in the Blood.

The Word held them steady in the face of every impossibility.

It is our Anchor.

It never fails

Continuing in victory.

Continuing in victory depends on continuing in the Word.  What you do with the Word determines what the Word will do for you.  How you Work the Word determines what the Word will work for you.  Giving the Word first place in your life and making the Word your Instruction Manual is extremely important. You need to learn the Word.  Study the Word.  Know the Word.  Meditate the Word. Speak the Word.  Pray the Word.  Believe the Word.  And, most importantly, Do the Word.

When you get full of the Word, no matter what shakes you, only the Word will come out.  If a glass is full of only water, no matter how badly it’s shaken, nothing but water will come out.   When you are full of the Word, no matter how bad your circumstances may be, nothing but the Word will come out.

Hide the Word in your heart and plant it in your spirit.  Think it and meditate it.  Never turn away from it.  Keep it before your eyes night and day.  Treasure it.  Love it and honor it.  Obey it.  See it as your Source.  It is food for your spirit and protection for your body and healing for your bones…  GET INTO THE WORD and GET THE WORD INTO YOU.

Be filled with all the fullness of God…  Eph 3:19
