New Creatures In Christ
Cor: 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, (a new
species of being, one that never existed)
6:15 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor
uncircumcision, but a new creature.
are the attributes of a new creature (creation)?
5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is
shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated
us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
We have been taken out
/f the realm of darkness, where men walk by their senses. We have been translated into the Kingdom of His dear Son, and
His love. In other words we
were translated into God Almighty’s family.
We are partakers of His Divine Nature.
The same life that was in the Son Of God (Jesus) is in us.
The same light that was in Jesus is in us.
That is part of the new creation. Jesus’ life (love) in us is the
source of life.
2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit
together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom,
and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not
as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be
troubled, neither let it be afraid.
3:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted
and grounded in love,
3:18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and
length, and depth, and height;
3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye
might be filled with all the fulness of God.
3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that
we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them
which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
17:10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in
John 2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One,
and ye know all things.
Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but
of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
15:11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in
you, and that your joy might be full.
12:28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of
God is come unto you.
9:1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of
them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen
the kingdom of God come with power.
17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the
kingdom of God is within you.
8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are
of this world; I am not of this world.
17:6 I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of
the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept
14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the
works that I do shall he do also; and greater
works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John we have a vivid accounting of Jesus life and
ministry. He healed the sick,
raised the dead and much more. Then
He says that these things shall we do and even greater than these.
What He has done is to lay out for us our starting place. NOT THE
PLACE WE ARE TO TRY TO ATTAIN!
often have we prayed “Lord I want to be more like Jesus”, or “Jesus
I want my life and ministry to be just like Yours.”?
FACT is: 1 John 4:17 Herein is our love made
perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he
is, so are we in this world.
fact is we are His Body. Jesus’
ministry is the place from which we are to start, not the place we are
suppose to end up. He is our
how can we see the things of Jesus’ ministry as basic in our life or
Faith! We see and therefore experience the things of God, by grace
Rom 5:2 By whom also we have access
by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of
the glory of God.
2 Cor 1:24 Not for that we have
dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith
Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our
schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by
Gal 3:25 But after that faith is come,
we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
Gal 3:26 For ye are all the children of
God by faith in Christ Jesus.
now you have told me what to do, how do I stand by faith in the Kingdom of
God? Let me first give you a Bible definition of faith: “Calling those
things that be not as though they were.”
Rom 4:17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many
nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead,
and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Rom 10:8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth,
and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; Rom 10:9
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt
believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt
Rom 10:10 For with the heart man
believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is
impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he
is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of
things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Rom 1:17 For therein is the
righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The
just shall live by faith.
Rom 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a
man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
Rom 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ:
Rom 4:3 For what saith the scripture?
Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
Rom 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that
it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the
seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of
the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, Rom 4:17
(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,)
before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and
calleth those things which be not as though they were.

whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater,

reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest

things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Eph 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to
another in the fear of God.
WALKING IN THE NEW CREATION
When we were
Born Again, we were made to be a New Creation( a new
species of being, but we have to allow the Holy Spirit to help us
change. The Holy Spirit came
to teach us all things. If
you are willing He will teach you how to put on the New Man
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father,
and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for
John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth;
whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth
him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
Eph 3:17 That Christ may dwell in your
hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
Eph 3:18 May be able to comprehend with
all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
Eph 3:19 And to know the love of
Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the
fulness of God.
Eph 3:20 Now unto him that is able to
do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the
power that worketh in us,
Eph 3:21 Unto him be glory in the
church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
To sum it all up, Jesus said, “ If
you Love me ….If you love one another… if you are rooted and grounded
in Love, you are walking in the New
Creation. “ The old and new has to be separated.
